The history of the Islamic swim wear - Veilkini and Burkini

The original idea of a all purpose swimwear for conservative Muslim women has sold under the brands of Burkini and Veilkini. As the name suggest that burqa (which is the Arabic term for veil) and bikini which is commonly worn in the western world in swimming pools or in beaches. The idea of a bikini for Muslim women made it an instant hit in the Islamic countries. France has once again got the spotlight in the media after banning the Burkini Due to medical hygiene concerns. It's medically known that wet bathing suits have a tendency to attract bacterial and fungal growth faster than norm. It's always a best practice to change quickly from a wet suit and not to share suits since in women it's know to create virginal infections.

Besides the smaller brands having their own version of a full cover swimming clothing only one international brand has added it to their swim wear range namely Speedo. Their does not have a hood to cover the hair has meant that it was not popular amongst Muslim women.

What about Muslim men swimsuits

Islamic law to maintain modesty is not only for women but men are also expected to adhere to the religious code. Men are expected to cover from their navel button to the knees under Sharia law. Men typically find alternative by wearing a long Bermuda style shorts with a t shirt which is not a proper solution for someone who wants to learn swimming in a professional manner. Wearing just the typical swim pants and have the body uncovered is not Islamic. To have the top and bottom up to and below the knees in a one single piece is the best solution though a product like this cease to exit in the market.

Taking ladies Muslim swim wear to the next level

The biggest limitations of Burkini and it's like-to-like products are that they have no pockets attached. It's a good products to have initially solving a problem for Muslim women who wanted to swim or relax on the beach at the same time keep their modesty but the product needs to be reinvented. The problem of not having pockets which are completely water proof for mobile phones or money etc always prevents the beach goer of safely of their belongings. This is especially true when it comes to water parks goers where many come to contact with a Burkini. In many of these water parks there are no convenient locker system to keep money safe with oneself. So a possible improvement to all these ladies swim wear would be to attach pockets which are completely water tight for personal belongings.
