Does Splashgear offer
a men's modest simwear line?
Due to customer requests,
a Splashgear men's modest swimwear line is currently under development.
We plan to offer two different styles of shirts and two different styles
of shorts. The fabrication will be the same, offering the same UV protection
and chlorine-resistant fabric. Please check back later to see the styles.
Splashgear products priced?
All Splashgear products
are proudly made in the USA using imported fabric with production facilities
in Southern California. Splashgear has contracted with the same factories
that have produced for major brand names, including Ralph Lauren, Kenneth
Cole, Victoria's Secret, Guess, Maxine, Robin Piccone, Gildamarx, and
Laundry by Shelli Segal. Workers in the USA are protected by labor laws
and workplace regulations. You can be assured that the people manufacturing
the Splashgear line are paid at least the minimum wage and work under
safe conditions, and Splashgear's retail prices reflect these facts.
Because of this, the quality of the products is very high and the value
Splashgear's products designed?
Splashgear has put much thought
into the design of its products, keeping the following criteria in mind.
- Conform to the Islamic modest dress
code and not be revealing, skin-tight, or see-through
- Be safe and comfortable to use
- Be fashionable and reasonably priced
The swimwear offers UV protection and
UPF information can be found on each respective product page. The hair
covers are offered in two styles--swim cap, which covers the head; and
swim hood, which covers the head and neck. The swim shirts are loose-fitting
in the chest area and are offered in two styles--hip-length and mid-thigh
length. The swim bottoms are offered in two styles--straight-leg pants
and a one-piece skirted pants--both of which have an internal drawcord
waist and cord lock, as well as a low-profile zipper and mesh pocket
for water drainage. The swim shirts and bottoms are cut to be comfortably
loose out of the water, but relatively close to the body in the water
to prevent floating up or entanglement. Chlorine-resistant synthetic
fabrics are used, which are light-weight and quick-drying and do not
weigh down the swimmer.
clothing be used for other, non-water activities?
Splashgear swimwear is
designed to be used for water activities and not for working out, or
exercising. The synthetic fabrics used in the line do not allow the
skin to 'breathe' like other fabrics, such as cotton or Coolmax® polyester
fibers. For workout/exercise clothing, Splashgear recommends specific
products that are designed to wick moisture away from your skin.
Splashgear sell its swimwear in separate pieces and not as one complete
Splashgear offers flexibility
and versatility to the consumer allowing her to create her own unique
outfit by mixing and matching different styles and colors. In addition,
different customers have different needs and Splashgear is happy to
be able to serve a diversity of clientele. Many Muslim women choose
to voluntarily abide by the Islamic modest dress code and cover completely.
Other Muslim and non-Muslim women choose to cover their bodies, but
not their hair; while yet other Splashgear customers purchase the swimwear
for non-religious reasons. By selling the swimwear in separate pieces,
the consumer can purchase only what she will use and nothing more.
swimwear offer UV protection?
Yes, Splashgear products do offer UV
protection and the UV Protection Factor, or UPF, can be found on each
respective product page. Generally, the UPF of a fabric increases
as the color gets darker and as the weave of the fabric gets tighter.
Also, the Chloroban® fabric, which Splashgear uses for the shirts
and hair covers, as well as the woven polyester fabric, which is used
for the swim bottoms, have been tested via the well-established and
any retail locations?
Splashgear is an e-commerce
site and does not currently have any retail stores. For a list of retailers

offer children's sizes?
The majority of Splashgear
customers are adult women and Splashgear focuses on this demographic.
Furthermore, Splashgear is offering a product that primarily addresses
the needs of Muslim women who are required by their faith to dress modestly
in mixed company upon reaching puberty. Children who have not yet reached
puberty are not required by Islam to cover their bodies.
How does the Splashgear
swimwear function in and out of the water? Isn't it dangerous to wear?
Doesn't it cling to the body immodestly?
Our swimwear is designed to be modest
both in and out of the water. In the water, the clothing is close to
the body and does not float, but is not skin-tight (please see underwater
photos of the swimwear). The fabrics are very thin and light-weight
and they do not weigh down the swimmer, and safety features have been
designed into each product. Upon exiting the water, the clothing will
stick to the body, but a quick tug at the bottom of the shirts will
instantly loosen them, and taking a few steps will instantly loosen
the pant legs of the swim bottoms, which are DWR-coated for water repellancy.
The Splashgear swimwear is designed to balance both the functional needs
of in-water performance and safety, as well as out-of-water modesty,
and you can read what real customers have to say about their Splashgear
outfits in regards to functionality and safety through their product
reviews posted at each product page.
