Modest swimsuits to wear this summer

Professing women of different religions around the world did not have many options when it came to wearing modest clothes to go to the beach or the pool: for a long time they had to resolve for improvising a swimsuit with an oversized t-shirt, a pair of old leggings and some piece of cloth to cover her hair, but nothing really fashionable.

Ikram Zein is a Muslim woman fond of fashion, who decided to take action on the matter and, with an imminent trip abroad, decided to make her own swimwear that reflected her style, beliefs and philosophy, appropriate for the climate of your destination. After talking to other women of various faiths and after a year creating moodboards, she launched Lyraswims in December 2016.

Lyra's minimalist designs are inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema, and the Moroccan coast. The modest swimsuits are made of Italian Carvico cloth, light, dry quick, resistant and with UV protection. Lyra swimsuits can be combined with swim cap, it has head covering, leggings and long sleeve tops for different body types, which can give you all the coverage you want.

Lyra has participated in London Modest Fashion Week, and they are planning to do a line extension to sportswear.
