Get your beach pants on!

In favor of modesty, at times Muslim women miss out on some of the more fun summer activities, including swimming.  We previously featured a post for swimming clothing options - other than the overpriced and unreliable burqinis that exist out there.

We've scoured the web and handily deliver this first round of swim pants to you.

These are in the front running for what could be my new swim pants.  Hydrochic's aptly named "Modest Swimming Pants" are THE pants for Muslim women swimmers!  These lightweight, loose pants that offer 2 way stretch and are quick drying, perfect for those trips to the beach or the pool this summer!  They are priced at $64, but pair that with a $30 rashguard, you've got a Muslim swimming outfit for less than $100!

Thanks! We we are hoping to do another round of modest swimwear when spring and summer get closer. We'd love to do a giveaway with them!
