    Hera wrote in her caption: "I just have to share this through all of my social media platforms. Look, that's me with a full swim suit that covers my hair and named burkini lately. I'm a Moslem, I'm good swimmer, I can roll back perfectly under water, I can swim for hours. Now France want to ban burkini in public beaches because it's considered disruptive to public order? Do you think I would be thinking something political as I dive in the water? Hey I would even forget my job as I swim."

    "My style is definitely more minimal, I wear leggings like for working out, with board shorts on top sometimes and a surf shirt or rash guard and then a turban or hat."

    Melanie Elturk, of Haute Hijab, said: "The invention of the burkini was one of the best things to happen to my wardrobe! … Once I found this amazing swimsuit it allowed me to participate in water activities without sacrificing my beliefs – whether that was swimming with a whale shark in the Maldives, jet-skiing in Zanzibar or snorkeling with sea turtles in Fiji."

    "I like to style my modest swimwear with a turban, sunglasses, my everyday necklace and earrings! The burkini being banned doesn't make sense to me, because it is a given right to every human to be able to have the freedom to wear whatever they believe in. Oppression to wear what they want you to wear isn't going to bring peace!"

    The lifestyle fashion & beauty v|ogger Dina Torkia, who doesn't wear a burkini in this photo but improvises with a cycling top and leggings, published her thoughts on the burkini and banning the burkini in a recent YouTube video, saying: "How are you gonna ban a 'burkini'? … This is just men telling women what to wear again and again."
