She Couldn't Find Chic Modest Swimwear so She Created Her Own Brand
For as long as I can remember, Burkinis or any modest swimwear was perceived as un-chic and not fashionable. Modest wearers and Hijabis had little options to choose from and most Burkinis were not flattering or stylish. I recently came across this brand which finally go it right.
When I read about the founder's story, it completely made sense why their designs are this different and great! Ikram, the founder created the brand LYRASWIMS after struggle to find swimwear that would suit her modesty and love for swimming and keeping fit. Her eye for fashion motivated her to start designing what she wanted to see in modest swimwear, inspired by her love for the elegance of classic Hollywood, Moroccan beach cool and minimalist design.
The material is light weight, fast drying and made from Italian carvico fabric that has High UV protection. You can purchase their full set or separate pieces depending on what you want. There are a couple of different designs, colors and fits that are really flattering and also look incredibly comfortable. My personal favorite is RAYA in Emerald. The drapes are done really elegantly and the color looks incredible on olive skin tones.
