If you've gone on the hunt for modest swimwear before, you'll probably know it's not the easiest thing. Even though there are more choices available today than a few years ago, it's not always straightforward to find the one that's right for you!

So it comes as super exciting news to hear that Nike is unveiling their very own line of modest swimwear called the Nike Victory Swim Collection!

The brand has shared its first glimpses of the new line, which excitingly even features Malaysia's very own Arinna Erin Wira as one of its models for the promotional campaign (she's the one in blue)! The line includes the Nike Victory Full-Coverage Swimsuit along with options for separate pieces, namely the Nike Victory Swim Hijab, the Nike Victory Swim Tunic Top and the Nike Victory Swim Leggings.

The swimwear is made with a lightweight, quick-dry material with UPF40+ sun protection so you can rest assured you'll be comfortable while also protected from the rays. There appears to be a few colours available, including black, blue and even pink!

Both the Nike Victory Full-Coverage Swimsuit and the Nike Victory Swim Tunic Top feature a built-in sports bra. The Swim Hijab on the other hand has an integrated mesh pocket that holds hair in place while you're underwater. Check out the sketches of the mechanics of the hijab - they're fascinating and it looks like a lot of thought went into producing a swim hijab that would get the job done well!

The collection will be available on 1 Feb 2020 on nike.com, along with select physical retailers (the closest ones to us being Nike Dubai and Nike London, but also Nike Santa Monica and the Nike New York City House of Innovation). Prices for the items haven't been revealed yet, but keep your eyes peeled on the nike.com website closer to the launch date!

After the successful introduction of Nike Pro Women's Hijab (which you can find in outlets in Malaysia and Singapore!), it's exciting to see Nike move forward with a modest swimwear collection. We're hoping it'll become physically available at outlets closer to home in the future but in the meantime, check it out when it launches on Feb 1 on nike.com!
