Burqini A Bikini for Muslim Women

A new twist on the bikini a "burkini" designed so Muslim women can enjoy a day on the beach. The burkini, is made from UV and water-protected polyester. It covers the whole body except for the feet, hands and face.

Its Australian designer, Aheda Zanetti, has been swamped with thousands of inquiries about the product from Europe, Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East. Zanetti said she started producing the Burqini as Muslim women were missing out on sports because of their dress code.

It allows Muslim women to swim in public, instead of wearing the full length dresses and robes.
