Super smooth

These shorts are very comfortable and the fabric is so smooth. The only downside is I get camel toe in certain yoga positions. The pockets are a big plus.

Best Shorts with a Cause!

Never have I felt so good about purchasing a pair of shorts for absolutely every activity in my life! Whether in the water, working out, or lounging around the house, these shorts stick with you and you feel good about the research you're supporting! I am very short in my inseam length, so the shorter the better for me, but I can't wait to collect all of the shorts for all of the causes!

Awesome!

I got these shorts to wear during teaching for dive classes. They work wonderfully in the pool and don’t ride up! I also wear them under my wetsuit and they make it easier to get my suit on and I don’t have to worry about them coming off when I get out of my wetsuit!! Can’t wait to get a new style.

I love these shorts! I have a pair from before they were updated with pockets, and the updated fit is so much better! The waist band is higher, which I love, and the legs of the shorts don't ride up as much as before. I've worn them to run in and to do a strength class in, and they're great for both! I do think the sizing in general runs a little small, but the size chart is pretty accurate for their sizes. I normally wear a medium in everything, but got a large in these, which is what the size chart recommends for me.

These shirts were so uncomfortable. They ride up in the crotch, and the waistband rolled over. So sorry I bought these. The top was ok, but totally squished my breasts and was too revealing of cleavage.

Hi Nina! Sorry to hear these didn't fit right. If the waistband is rolling over and they're riding up, it sounds like there must be an issue with sizing/fit and going up one size would likely alleviate these issues. We always offer free and easy exchanges and returns to be sure you're 100% happy with our products, so we would love to exchange these out for a different size that will work better for you. It sounds like the top might be a bit on the small end too if it's squishing you more than you'd like, so maybe an exchange makes sense for this product also. If you have any questions at all on sizing or how to initiate a free exchange (or return if you prefer) please reach out to us at hello@waterlust.com. and we'd love to help!

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY one of the ocean's largest predators,THE tiger SHARK (galeocerdo cuvier)

Shark Research and Conservation Program Logo10% of profits from your purchase will go directly toward the Shark Research and Conservation (SRC) Program at the University of Miami,helping to fund important research focused on the ecology, movement and conservation of tiger sharks as well as other local shark species. In addition to research, the SRC program is actively aimed at student education and community outreach through extensive citizen science and internship programs.

Tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Near Threatened”, and thus, research, education and outreach is essential to ensuring healthy populations. As one of the ocean’s largest predators, these critical species sit at the top of the food chain, helping to regulate the delicate balance of populations of those beneath in the ecosystem. Decreased populations can result in trophic cascades, impacting the abundance and behavior of other species lower on the food chain. Multiple research methods have shown that some species of sharks have declined in population by 90% or more during the last several decades in areas where they were formerly abundant. These declines are due to direct targeting in commercial fisheries, mostly for their fins and sometimes meat. Additionally, sharks are often caught unintentionally as bycatch in many other fisheries, caught and killed in some recreational fisheries (unlike catch and release), and may also be impacted by humans more indirectly through threats like habitat loss, pollution, and human-driven declines in the fish species sharks rely on for food.

Sharks have been in the ocean for more than 450 million years. Granted, they’ve evolved a bit since then, but they’ve survived five major extinction events! Help us to celebrate these amazing animals, support research to inform management of their populations, and use your gear as a conversation piece to educate others.

Learn more about some of the research conducted by the Shark Research and Conservation Program. This Waterlust video explains the findings of a paper published in the scientific journal of Diversity and Distributions entitled "Use of marine protected areas and exclusive economic zones in the subtropical western North Atlantic Ocean by large highly mobile sharks."

The study investigated the core home habitat use of bull, great hammerhead and tiger sharks tagged in waters off south Florida and the northern Bahamas to understand if these highly mobile shark species might benefit from spatial protection, such as marine protected areas (MPAs).
