Why Do Muslims Wear Burkinis?
It’s a beautiful sunny day – the water is inviting, the beach vibrant, and you’re looking forward to a refreshing dip. But as a practising Muslim woman honouring modesty values, traditional swimwear doesn’t cater to your needs. Enter the Burkini: a game-changer that has revolutionised beach and swimwear for Muslim women.
In this blog, we’re going to explore the why behind burkinis. Along the way, we’ll offer a sneak peek into the range of modest dresses including long sleeves available at Modora, one of the best places for women in the UK.
What Is a Burkini?
Tracing its etymological roots to a clever mash-up of ‘burqa’ and ‘bikini’, the burkini swimsuit is a beautifully designed piece of swimwear that covers the whole body, excluding the face, hands, and feet, aligning with Islamic principles of modesty.
You may ask, why do Muslims wear burkinis? The answer lies in the perfect balance it strikes – allowing Muslim women to participate in water activities while adhering to their faith and beliefs. Over at Modora, they understand this balance, which is why the collection of Burkini Swimwear has been carefully curated to reflect these values.
Modest Dresses and the Burkini Revolution
The rise of the burkini as popular swimwear traces back to its creation by Lebanese-Australian designer Aheda Zanetti. When you scroll through Modora’s collection of burkinis, you’ll notice the designer’s admiration for the values of modesty in every piece.
Each burkini, much like Modora’s long sleeve modest dresses, is an elegant assertion of identity and a vibrant celebration of faith. These modest dresses for women resonate with the idea: you can be dynamic, stylish, and still be true to your beliefs. Modora’s range of burkinis embodies this idea with every stitch.
Diversity and Choices: Burkini for every Muslim Woman
While burkinis are designed with a specific purpose in mind, their appeal has generated a universal acceptance. Taking cues from its sister category, modest dresses, the burkini has evolved in style, design, and colours across brands.
When you go through the range of burkinis, you encounter diversity in full swing. From a Short Sleeve Navy Blue Burkini Swimsuit Set to a Beige And Black Full Length Burkini Swimsuit, or a trendy Blue Printed Burkini Swimsuit Set, the choices are enchanting. Accompanied by the selection of long sleeve modest dresses, Modora’s catalogue is a testimony to the versatility of modest fashion.
A Final Note
Remember, swimwear such as burkinis are not merely about dress codes, but a tool of empowerment allowing Muslim women to reclaim public spaces while embracing their faith. Making sure you have the chance to celebrate your ethos in style, Modora’s burkini for Muslims collection, alongside its range of modest dresses UK, strives to keep the spirit of ‘modest yet trendy’ alive.
It recognises the importance of feeling confident, no matter what you’re wearing. Because as Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” So, explore Modora’s collection today and find your perfect style expression!
