Many Muslim Women Are Subscribing To Swimming And Aqua-Arobic Lessons

Feb 29, 2008
Only since a few years several companies threw out the world provide Modest swimwear.

For many *Muslimahs going to the beach or to the swimming pool has been very difficult in the past, due to the fact of having a very limited choice of Muslim swimwear to choose from and especially because of the Islam's traditional emphasis on the dress code.

Islamic swimwear that was been offered in the past did not allow these women to really swim. The materials and cuts that where used made it very difficult to swim in, as they consisted out of too many different pieces.
i.e. Headpiece, Jacket, Shirt, Skirt and Pants.

Which meant in return it would prevent the women to actually swim comfortably and at the same time always having the fear to loose the separate headpiece.

Luckily you will now find a variety of modest swimwear stores on the web,one of them is called: Bodykini Modest Sportswear

The Bodykini is a modest swimming suit especially designed to enhance athletic performance while upholding the Koranic principle of modesty by only showing face, hands and feet.

The Bodykini online store was established beginning of 2007 by Oliver Momeni based in sunny Marbella, Spain.

Before Oliver designed the Bodykini he researched the market, spoke with many *Muslimahs and with his Iranian female family members. He observed what would be most important to these women if they had the opportunity to design a Muslim swimming suit themselves.He followed their advice made his notes and continued researching the market but he was not satisfied with what he saw, either the swimming suits where not tastefully designed (colors,patterns) or the where just unpractical for swimming.

Oliver said: "I knew that some very important facts would need to be fulfilled if I was going to design a modest swimsuit. The suit would need to cover well during active swimming while upholding the Islamic values of modesty and yet I wanted the suit to be fashionable. The 2 piece suit would need to be generously proportioned, not hinder your movement, provide maximum movement and comfort while in or out of the water."

After a few months of research he came to the conclusion that the modest swimsuit that he had in
mind did not exist on the market.

So he decided to start designing his own Modest swimwear collection.

Before Oliver moved down to sunny Spain he has been working in the family textile business since over 20 years, where he collected most of his experience.

He said: "I designed the Bodykini swimwear with the respect of Islamic values and aim to enhance the lifestyle of the active sportive *Muslimah. Many Muslimahs around the world are very thankful for the modest swimsuits that we provide, it allows them to take part at those water sports that where out of reach for so long."

Oliver emphasizes: "The time has come to see more Muslim women competing at water sports, at a higher level"

The Bodykini Swimwear is a 2 piece swimsuit, a shirt with a attached headpiece and a separate pants. The suit is available in two colors: Black suit with Pink stripes and Brown suit with Orange stripes.

The swimming suit is made out of a high quality water-repellent fabric which is highly Chlorine/Salt water resistant and provides ultraviolet protection factor +50 that block the harmful sun rays.

The Polyester/Spandex material drys very fast and ensures maximum comfort thanks to "four-way" stretch. The material also provides a perfectly uniform and elegant surface that enhances the beauty and style of the garments.

The Bodykini comes with a couple of features:Two elastic bands that are attached at the inside of the pants, that get buttoned to the inside of the suit. This function is implemented to prevent the suit from floating up, in case the swimmer should jump in the water with her "Feet first". The pants also has a small pocket with a zipper (Ideal for keys, money etc.)

Now Islamic women can enjoy wearing modest swimming suits and participate at water sports, jump in to the pool, relax in a jacuzzi or dive into the sea. Most important they are now able to stay fit with swimming and aqua-aerobic. Modest swimwaer is gaining in popularity also with non Muslim women as some choose to cover their bodies due to cultural and even medical reasons.
