Burkini — the Reawakening of Modest Swimwear

The Burkini is a type of swimwear made for people who are looking for a more modest type of swimwear to go swimming or to the beach in. The swimwear was created by Aheda Zanetti in 2007, an Australian Muslim. After seeing her nieces playing volleyball in traditional Islamic garb, Zanetti realized a need for more sporty outfits for Muslim women.
