"Look Ma, no tan lines!"

I'm all for supporting religious freedom and stuff, but seriously, can a beach-lovin' Muslim sista please just get her suntan on?

Alas, no. But now, at least, she does have some options. Here's one: It's called a "burqini," and it has the potential to become all the rage among the beach-going, ultra-conservative Muslim set:

The Burkini is made from ultraviolet- and water-protected polyester. Unlike the bikini, it covers the whole body except for the feet, hands and face, allowing Muslim women to swim in public.
You gotta admit though, it does take a bit of pressure off of the whole working-out-for-summer thing. They may be on to something here.

All I'm saying is, does it come in a batik pattern? Because that would be super cute.

Oh yeah, and P.S.? These things sell for up to $160.

P.P.S.: Technically, shouldn't her face be covered, too?

P.P.P.S.: Want one? Order here.

Probably, but maybe you could put in reflective plexiglass or something.
