Advocate Apparel Inspired by the largest fish in the sea, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus)

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within.

Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance. Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong.

“Waterlust's support provides critical seed funding for us to rapidly develop and implement whale shark conservation projects in areas where this globally-endangered species is most at risk. This includes Mozambique, where our research and awareness work helped the government decide to fully protect whale sharks just a few weeks ago. We love working with a company that is so committed to making a positive change in the world.”

Whale Shark Warrior Sun Suit

I
Iulia Babici (Eastbourne, ENG, GB)
it is perfect

I love my new sunsuit, a very welcome addition to my other whale shark items from Waterlust. It fits well. I highly recommend it.

Perfect fit

The material fits like a glove, it is so soft but hold you together. The fabric is absolutely beautiful.

L
Lainey Heneks (Rensselaer, NY, US)
Amazing Fabric but the fit is a bit strange

Amazing fabric as always bit the top and sleeves were oversized and the bottom was too too tight. Just didn’t suit my body but will still shop waterlust’s other products as I’ve love their bra tops and shorts. Be wary if you are curvy on bottom here. Easy returns though!

Sunsuit

Hi, sun suit is too restrictive around the neck for me. Could I exchange it for the rash top in the same colour pattern.

Hi Kath! Thanks so much for the feedback, no problem exchanging your suit for something different. Instructions on how to do that at the link below
