In May 2019, Halima Aden made history when she appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in a full-body swimsuit. Modesty and sports were seen as irreconcilable opposites, coercing women into choosing between their vocation and their personal belief.
Swimwear that fits your style and personal values can be hard to find. Wearing the right kind of swimming costume shows that you are confident in yourself while demonstrating your freedom of choice in achieving your unique style.
“Do you have a body? Then you're swimsuit ready. That's all you need to worry about.” - Emily Ratajkowski
The Winds of Change
When Lebanese-born Australian designer Aheda Zanetti came up with the idea of a full body swimming costume, it was intended to allow her niece to participate in outdoor sports while still retaining her personal dignity. Perfecting a design that conformed to athletic requirements resulted in an innovative costume that has become a symbol of self-confidence and empowerment.
Today this swimsuit, termed the ‘Burkini’ by Zanetti, is a fast-growing fashion phenomenon that has caught the attention of women all over the globe. Expanding into casualwear and vogue segments, the Burkini has become a representation of women’s choice to wear what they want.
“Modesty isn’t about covering up our bodies, it’s about revealing our dignity.” - Jessica Rey
