Advocate Apparel Inspired by the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)

A solitary species that rarely interacts with others outside of mating rituals, sea turtles struggle to survive from the day they hatch out of their egg. Sea turtle mortality rates are depressingly high, about 99% of juveniles will meet their demise before reaching sexual maturity.

6 out of the 7 species of sea turtles are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as either vulnerable or critically endangered. Marine turtles are threatened by pollution, marine plastics and debris, climate change, boat strikes, poaching and bycatch, and habitat loss.

Terrific suit!

I wore this on a cruise because I didn't want to spend all my time reapplying sunscreen. it is very well-made and comfortable. I bought a medium even though the model in my size was wearing a small, and it fits great (I am 5'8", 135 pounds). The neck is a little tight in the front, but that is because I am flat chested. Little details like the zipper cover at the top and the thumb holes in the sleeves make this a suit you can work in!

Great Product

I'm 155 and 5' 6", I purchased a large and I love the fit! Not binding and not too loose. Covers my whole bottom. Room for a more supportive top underneath if I want. The sea turtle design is fantastic, and blends my bulges. I was concerned it would be flimsy, but it is not. I believe it will protect from the sun and minor stings in the water, it is not see through. I haven't worn it in the water yet, but I'm excited to do so!

Excellent suit.

This is Peter's wife. I do like the suit. Very well made. Quality fabric and design. At 5'6" 124 lbs, [long torso, flat chest] I ordered a 'S' which was WAY to tight, especially around the neck. I made a painless exchange for a "M" which arrived in days and it fits beautifully.. Enthusiastic recommend. Will be shopping here again.
