I'm sorry, this is France. Your bathing suit isn't revealing enough.
The city of Cannes has banned full-coverage bathing suits designed for Muslim women, dubbed "burkinis." They're long pants, a long-sleeved top and, of course, a head covering. I don't know how you'd surf in one but not my call. And I imagine completely Francified young Muslim hotties could skip the top and just go with the trousers and the hat. Dunno. Either way, they're illegal now.
The excuse seems to be that they could be hiding a suicide vest under one but it sounds to me like it's just one more way for the French to mess with their Muslim population. I'd think they'd have figured that out by now but I guess not. And I don't know how they'd handle a visit to the Riviera by the Duggar family. Their version of a bathing suit is the one in the middle. But I guess maybe it's ok if you give a little glimpse of elbow now and then. Stylish.http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/ ... thing-suit
Don't look at me, I just work here.
