Burkini?

I came across an article in the Metro Express this morning about the growing demand for Muslim womens swimming suits. After looking at the swimsuits, the first thought I had was, "These are much cooler than the modest christian swimsuits that are sold online." The second thought was, "huh, I wouldn't wear those pants in the water, but they'd be great for just chilling on the beach( I'm trying to protect my skin better than I have in the past)."

Anyway, I did a quick search online, but I do have to say some of these muslim swimsuits rock. Some look just like what muslim women wear day to day. Splashgear is definitely the coolest of the muslim swimwear webpages I found. The pants are made out of the soft waterproof nylon that so many board shorts are made out of now and look just like board shorts--just longer. the shirts just look like longsleeve rashguards. Totally cool. Splashgear

It never crossed my mind that their religion would hinder their ability to swim... very interesting.

I have never even thought of Muslim swimsuits. In my narrow-mindedness I guess I assumed that they probably just couldn't swim due to the modesty thing. But more like, just NO SWIMMING! Like missionaries. Hee hee!
