The company said,”The design of the Nike Victory Swim Collection serves a variety of needs from modesty preferences to sun protection and represents Nike’s commitment to inclusive design, providing more women with game-changing innovation to enjoy sport”.

The fabric is designed to be lightweight, breathable and fast-drying with UPF40+ sun protection, Nike said.

The new swim options follow the company’s release of a performance hijab for Muslim women athletes in 2017, which featured a single-layer pull-on design made from lightweight polyester in dark, neutral colors with tiny holes that make the fabric breathable and opaque.

The company said it began making hijabs for Muslim athletes after some Muslim athletes complained about wearing a traditional head scarf for competitions.
