    I guess you have never heard of a woman's "muslim bathing suit". They are pretty ugly but extremely modest. They cover the hair, neck, arms, torso, and legs (varying from just below the knees to the ankle). The over tunic or robe can extend from mid-thigh right down to the ankles...it all depends on the country and the degree of piousness of the wearer. Additionally, in many muslim countries, they have "women-only" beaches and/or pools.

    I find it most unusual that as a Muslim country, swim ware of any kind is allowed. Most Muslim countries insist on visiting women to their countries to follow local dress requirements. It has been correctly observed in other writings that Dubi turns a blind eye (or maybe that is a secretly ogling eye) to everything foreign as long as $$$$ is involved.
