Supposedly, a mixture between a burkha and a bikini,(although some aliken it to an old fashioned swimsuit) this will allow those ladies who don't wish to share the view of their flesh to the 'toms', to partake in water activity. While this might not put an end to the perhaps odd sight of full abayas floating in the sea, it might change the landscape of the ladies beach or ladies day at Wild Wadi. We have mentioned the sports hijab before, which originated from the Netherlands. This culturally sensitive attire comes from Oz. Good on ya mate.

Imagine swimming in a baggy wetsuit. Not fun, if not impossible.
