About this deal

Notable non-Muslim wearers have included Nigella Lawson, who wore a burkini in Australia in 2011, not out of religious observance, but to protect her skin. [20] When introduced at Marks & Spencer stores in Britain in March 2016, burkinis sold out. [21] For modesty [ edit ] In August 2009, a woman in France was prevented from swimming in a public pool wearing a burkini, amidst ongoing controversy about Muslim dress. The action was justified by reference to a law that forbids swimming in street clothes. [26] The controversy over the burkini in France may also be seen as reflecting broadly held French attitudes against religious expression in public. French law emphasizes the importance of creating a "religiously neutral arena" in which people are expected to appear similar, as well as being treated equally. In this, France differs significantly from countries such as the United States, which emphasizes individual freedom of choice about whether to express religious sentiments. [11] :33 In 2016, a number of French municipalities banned the wearing of burkinis, which sparked international controversy and accusations of Islamophobia. The resulting publicity caused a significant increase in sales, especially sales to non-Muslims and to survivors of skin cancer. Before then, Zanetti's company had sold about 700,000 burkinis worldwide. [2] Creation of the burkini [ edit ] A burkini displayed on a mannequin in a museum at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. The exhibit highlights the use of polyester and spandex to create elastic clothing.

The ban refined a rule that went into force in September 2017, which required swimmers to wear "any clothing that is specifically used for swimming". [52] The September rule was prompted by young people swimming in public pools in street wear (e.g., ordinary T-shirts), which had caused concerns about hygiene. [51] The more restrictive ban sparked controversies among some, including Sami Kanaan, the city's socialist administrative advisor, who called the rule a "denial of an open, multicultural and liberal Geneva". [53] Before the ban, councillors were only aware of one person having ever worn a burkini to the city's pools. [51] See also [ edit ] Rodionova, Zlata (23 August 2016).

In Asia, where light-colored complexions are fashionable, the burkini is used by women who want to be outside without tanning. [25] They may pair it with a facekini to avoid having a darker-skinned face. It has also been worn by celebrities to avoid sunburns or UV-induced skin damage, which can lead to premature skin aging.

Depending on the manufacturer and model, a suit can consist of two to four pieces. Aheda Zanetti's original burkini consisted of two pieces: pants and a tunic with an attached hood. It was made from 100 percent polyester. [14] Ahiida now markets three types of burkini (modest fit, slim fit, and active fit) in a variety of colors. The active fit style is more snug than the others and uses a polyester-spandex blend fabric which is coated with Teflon to decrease water resistance. [11] Chassany, Anne-Sylvaine (15 September 2016). "France: Islam and the secular state". Financial Times . Retrieved 3 February 2017.

Others are concerned that stretchy or clinging fabric reveals the outline of the body. [19] More restrictive Muslims may also advocate that the head covering be long enough to cover the breasts, or that a skirt cover the hips. For similar reasons, pants are sometimes considered overly revealing. Hanafi scholars such as those at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, reject full-body swimsuits as allowable wear in mixed company. [11] :29–30 Cannes bans burkinis over suspected link to radical Islamism". BBC News. 12 August 2016 . Retrieved 12 August 2016. In December 2017, the Swiss city of Geneva passed a law requiring swimmers to wear swimsuits that do not go lower than the knee and keep the swimmer's arms bare, which would effectively ban not only burkinis but also the bodyskins used by elite swimmers, swim dresses, rash guards, wetsuits, and other styles of swimsuits. [51] They simultaneously banned topless swimming in the city pools. [51] The burkini has also found popularity in Israel, both among Orthodox Jews and among Muslims, and is called either burkini or simply "modest swimwear". [22] To avoid sun exposure [ edit ]

The burkini has also been adopted by cancer survivors and others who are at high risk of skin cancer. [23] [1] Like other types of sun protective clothing, people who wear burkinis may reduce their risk of skin cancer.

Some drew parallels between the burkini ban and the French ban of the Catholic soutane some 111 years earlier after the 1905 French law on the Separation of the Churches and the State.
