Nike lunches Hijab Swimsuit for Muslim Sister

Nike lunches Hijab Swimsuit for Muslim Sister.

Heavyweight sportswear designer, Nike has lunch swimsuit for Muslim sisters to have a full body covered while swimming.

The hijab swimsuit as announced on Tuesday, December 10. 2019 will be available globally at select retailers and online on February 1, 2020.

According to Nike:

“The design of the Nike Victory Swim Collection serves a variety of needs from modesty preferences to sun protection and represents Nike’s commitment to inclusive design, providing more women with game-changing innovation to enjoy sport,” the company said.

The fabric is designed to be lightweight, breathable, and fast-drying with UPF40+ sun protection, Nike said.

The full-coverage suit is available along with a separate hijab, tunic top, and swim leggings.

The new swim options follow Nike’s release of a performance hijab for Muslim women athletes in 2017, which featured a single-layer pull-on design made from lightweight polyester in dark, neutral colors with tiny holes that make the fabric breathable and opaque.

Nike said it began developing the hijab after some Muslim athletes complained about wearing a traditional headscarf during competition.

“I was thrilled, and a bit emotional to see Nike prototyping a Hijab,” Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari said in a statement. “I’ve tried so many different hijabs for performance, and … so few of them work for me. But once I put it on and took it for a spin on the ice, I was blown away by the fit and the lightweight.”
