The burkini has been talked about a lot in recent years and it has evolved a lot. Today, Muslim women are daring and claiming their rights to choose appropriate clothing to enjoy their holidays.
But what is the burkini?
The burkini a coined word composed of the first syllable of burka and the last two syllables of bikini . Intended for Muslim women wishing to bathe in a “modest” outfit, it was designed in 2004 by the Australian stylist of Lebanese origin Aheda Zanetti.
It is therefore a covering swimsuit , also called Islamic swimsuit which generally covers the whole body.
The burkini allows us to preserve our modesty but it also protects us from the sun's rays which are very dangerous for the skin, a major campaign on skin cancer following exposure to the sun is proof of this. Women with skin problems and wishing to protect themselves from the rays can also wear this covering swimsuit without necessarily being Muslim.
