13 Women Effortlessly Rock Burkinis, Let The World Know They Can Wear What They Want

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE - Aug. 26, 2016: France's burkini ban has been overturned by top court, after being challenged by lawyers for two human rights groups. Women who have already received fines can now protest them.

At least 15 towns in France have banned burkinis, according to The Guardian. And on Tuesday armed police officers in Nice forced a woman sitting on the beach to remove her clothing as a result.

But while French Prime Minister Manuel Valls appears to fully support the ban by stating the swimwear is "not compatible with the values of France and the Republic" and is "based notably on the enslavement of women," sales for burkinis have risen exponentially since the law was put in place. Even non-Muslim women, including skin cancer survivors, are buying the Islamic swimsuit that covers everything except for the face, hands and feet.

So although some parts of France may be trying to rid the swimwear from its beaches, it doesn't look like burkinis are going anywhere anytime soon. And the women wearing them below are as proud as ever to rock the innovative designs, while also letting the world know they can wear whatever they choose.

Dear #France, my dress code on the beach is MY dress code on the beach. It doesn't represent Islam, it doesn't represent an ideology, it doesn't represent any religion or belief. It's simply what I'm comfortable with wearing while I enjoy being in one of my favourite environments. The Beach. I will not apologize for that, but you owe an apology to humanity and the world for your blatant hypocrisy and disrespect for freedom of choice. #WTFFRANCE #burkini #burkiniban #hijabismychoice #hijabismyfreedom #freewill #choice #liveandletlive #letitbe #getoverit #myhijab #beach #ocean #waves #wanderlust #wanderingyogi #yogisoftheworld #muslimsoftheworld1 #yogaeverydamnday #yogalove #peaceandlove #peacefulmind #peaceonearth #onelove #strongwomen
