Whether you are swimming or working out, you will feel cool and hip in this modest and active wear which features contrast stitching. This is our sporty cut - modest but slighly more fitted in the upper arms. It also features a relatively long tunic. On most people of average height, the tunic of this swimsuit should be about mid-thigh. If you are a taller person, please consider the LAGUNA style which features a longer tunic.
We highly recommend wearing some type of "padded" undergarment for support and coverage. You could chose a bikini, sports bra, a tank top with a shelf bra, or a regular bra. You could also choose a one piece swimsuit, however you would need to remove the entire swimsuit if you would need to use the washroom. We discontinued the inclusion of an in-built shelf bra as it was uncomfortable to some customers.

I am comparing this product to my previous swimwear- Arena. Hands down, this attire is perfect for those who want to wear a swimwear and still cover the aurat.
Before I enter Sunway Lagoon (Malaysia) for the water/park rides, i was practically wearing this swimwear with an instant tudung walking around the huge shopping mall next door. it's like wearing your normal outfit seriously!! i wouldn't feel as comfortable wearing my Arena swimwear in a shopping mall.
you need not worry about the top flipping up. there's a clip at both sides of the top to fasten it to the pants.
now, the most important is when you step out of water, how the swimwear perform? it doesn't stick to my body. yes, it didn't. seriously. the product is made of (i dont know what material) that it seemed like it didn't absorb any water when i stepped out of the pool.
the only downside, there's no insert to place a breast padding to cover the nipples. i wouldn't wear a bra or anything else inside my swimwear. so to have an optional insert would be perfect. for e.g. Arena swimwear, i can choose to remove or place the breast pad into the insert.
overall, this product is par excellent. i highly recommend those who want to be in the waters and still wants to cover their aurat. well done to the people behind this creation!! may Allah swt put in endless barakah in your every single effort to provide such services to the ummah. :)

Without going into how high maintenance my ordering was, the service and patient attention I received was outstanding. I give them 5 stars for service alone.
The quality of the Burkini that I ordered was a very nice quality. I purchased it as a gift.

I love the new swimsuits I purchased from Al Sharifa. It arrived just two days after I placed the order with regular shipping. The material is very good quality, as I've come to expect from Al Sharifa. I've already gone swimming and found the material very comfortable in the water. It does not get heavy or clingy when wet, enabling me to swim and enjoy my time in the water.I am a return customer and always get very good service and an excellent product from this company. Thank you Al Sharifa!

as salam aleikum
i received my swimsuit very fast as always. It seems to be of a good quality but i didn't try it yet in water. I ordered size S navy blue. The head is a bit tight maybe it is on purpose so that it does not move while swimming. Thank you to Alsharifa team for your perfect customer service.

I love this swimsuit. It is very comfortable and dries quickly. The material is great; it doesn't absord water at all. I was worried about it fitting but it fits perfectly. The only issue I had was that despite the shirt attaching to the pants, the shirt would ride up a little in the water exposing my back. I plan to use safety pins or add buttons to solve that. I'm so happy that I can go back in the water again.

LOVE IT. Wore it for scuba diving, and it was great. Thank you!

For the record: I have tried several islamic swimsuits and prefer this over all of them - even the incredibly costly burqini! I swim daily in the summer as we have a pool in our backyard and live in the desert where the only form of outdoor exercise one can do in the summer is swim!
This is my second swimsuit and the first one is in wonderful condition after a year and i purchased a second suit because i needed a new size.
Fabric and stitching is amazing and made to last! High quality details such as the connectors from top to pants that keep the top from floating up in the water are excellent. Connected headpiece fits well and does not slip off when wet. Fabric thick enough that it is not revealing when wet. (I wear a swimsuit or undergarments underneath)
I can recommend both the Sportiva and the Riveria versions of the swimsuit as excellent quality and value.

I just like it! Shipment in to 2 days for Canada!

I love how it doesn't come up in the water and doesn't stick to my body and when I come out of the water it dries quickly which is excellent. thank you alsharifa for the wonderful service you provided which was excellent.

I can't wait to go swimming now,
The material is very nice.
I'm happy with the suit

very beautiful and awesome thank you its cover all my body
Posted by A. Alkhani on 9th Jun 2013
From customer service to product I am very happy! 3xl is perfectly loose for someone that is normally a 1x or xl. The arms and legs are long which is also good, and the fabric is definitely quick drying and non revealing. It is also comfortable to be in anywhere as well as extended periods of time. I will definitely be purchasing from Alsharifa again in the future!

I am very happy with my order and the speedy delivery. I am 5'11" and I was worried about the length of the pants but they are a good length and can be adjusted. The shirt hooks to the pants so the shirt will not float in the water. I would suggest measuring yourself before purchasing the suit for the best fit. I took it for a test drive with my daughter this weekend and I am still happy with the suit. It did not stick to me and the head piece never came off.
Posted by Karima on 4th Apr 2013
The customer service was outstanding and I was given prompt responses to my questions about the length, etc. of the swimsuit. The fit was very good. Loose, but not too loose to fall down. Waist fit nicely and legs and tunic were extremely comfortable and I had very good modest coverage. The hijab portion scared me slightly because it was a little tight going on, but I was able to get it to fit properly and it is very comfortable hijab and I feel secure that it will remain in place when I go swimming. This swimsuit is so comfortable, I think I may also use for my exercise workouts! Thank you very much. From a new Sister in Islam.

I purchased this in the black and magenta and I love it! The fit is perfect and I love the full coverage...I wish it had a built in bra for extra support but I just wear a sports bra under it and it works....Also love the clips to keep the top secure.....if your looking for a great excersize/swim suit this is the one to get!
Posted by Unknown on 26th Feb 2013
Fast delivery, very good care about customers, high quality fabric and very good cut. Thanks a lot!

After alot of research online I finally went for alsharifa , mainly because my friends already had purchased from them. Its very comfortable, the fabric feels great.I ordered the sportiva black and magenta, and it looks very pretty! I had some problem with putting my head in the hood the first time, but i think the hood will loosen a bit over time. But I also have some problems with it.First, the fabric does cling to the body when I get out of the pool. so i have to cover immediately with a towel or robe as soon as i get out.Another problem is that the shirt lifts up under the water and my tummy is exposed , so i have to wear something underneath.All in all, I think with the hefty price tag , it should be better than it is.
Posted by Nizerah on 17th Jan 2013
Excellent product, I am very pleased with my purchase, you can tell it is made of high quality materials. I do have suggestions for improvement, swimming in a pool I noticed that if you go under water there is nowhere for the water to drain near the ears and reduce the echoing which was annoying, every time I got up I had to open the side to release the water (maybe mesh near the ears so you can hear and the water can drain.
And the side clips where not adjustable to make tighter and therefore my top would creep up whilst swimming and I needed to keep adjusting. Overall I am still very happy with my purchase.
Posted by Yara on 3rd Jan 2013
first off I got my package in 2 days and I only paid regular shipped which was awesome! I'm a jiu jitsu athlete and I needed a hijab that would stay on as I rolled, got choked, got taken down, basically fight. And this was perfect! All I had to do was tighten it on the side to make sure it would stay on the whole time I trained. I tried it out yesterday and it stayed on the whole time an I didn't have to struggle and tap out just to fix my hijab. All in all this is a great invention!

I'm pretty happy with this, but it was shorter than I had thought. I had tried on a medium in the Laguna, and it was pretty long, and I knew this one was shorter, but I hadn't realized how much shorter it was. I'm 5'8" so I knew I might have issues, but was hoping it would work for me. It still covers my bottom, and the headpiece fits better than the Laguna (which was a little loose) and I'm really happy with the quality and fabric. I do wish I could have gotten the grey/turquoise one, the black/pink was not my first choice. In all, I'm happy with my purchase, if it was 1 or 2 inches longer it would be absolutely perfect.
Posted by Hasani on 29th Nov 2012
Now a sister can swim anytime anywhere with modesty, comfort, and style! I purchased one for me and for my 13 year old daughter; she loved it, and other family members who aren't even Muslims, stating that they wanted a pair! This product is light weight, not form fitting, does not hold water, dries easily, looks classy, and keeps you warm in the water. Customer service is excellent and I would most definitely recommend this product to every muslimah out there! This would even work for those women wanting a classy wet suit! Thank you all that's concerned with Alsharifa; may you be greatly rewarded!

I recieved my swimsuit, the shipping was pretty fast. I really like the feel of the material, and it covers very well alhamdulilah. I do wish there were a few more snap closures. There is one on each side of the waist, but I wish there was one in the center front and back. I also think the string should be shorter, as the shirt does still float up a lot when worn. I have remedy this by shortening the strap myself, and adding additional snap closures. I would recommend either wearing a one-piece swimsuit underneath, or a bikini with a rashguard tank. I wouldn't wear try anything with sleeves in the sportiva style, beause the sleeves are fitted. I do love the one piece hood. It is snug to get on, but once its on you can rest at ease that it isn't going ANYWHERE. I was worried about it not being snug enough, tha tmy hair might come out while swimming, no chance of that! I am happy with my purchase, it was a great deal.

This is my first full cover swimsuit. I was not sure what size to get so at midnight EST I took a chance and called the 800 number hoping to reach someone. I was pleasantly surprised to get a very helpful woman who was very patient with me and helped me not only choose a size, but recommended a different suit than I first selected. I am so thankful for this becuse the suit I received FIT PERFECTLY. Not too loose but definately covers me where I wanted to not show my shape. This is a great suit made of the best material. It is an investment but well worth the money. I can now go swimming or to the beach in modest comfort. Thank you!

it fits me perfectly
Posted by Amina on 3rd Oct 2012
As soon as we walked to the beach everyone was trying figure out what we were wearing and why. We started talking to many people because of our Muslim swimsuit and made many local fiends. I loved not having to stress about anything showing or layering. I wish I had ordered it a long time ago. Thank you for creating this amazing outfit for Muslim women.

Alhumdulilah Kelly helped me with sizing. As my body shape is akward. Not only is this generous for plus size women. It is extremely comfortable. I was afraid when I opened the package it would not fit. I was surprised. It fit great.I did water aerobics in this the pants did not come up at all despite vigorous movements. The tunic did float up a bit but it has clips so not all the way. I solved that by tucking it into the pants a pinch in the water. I was totally pleased with this. I had ordered a much more expensive suit custom made. Which I wore one time. It was completely unusable even for swimming laps. As the pants get pockets of water. Alsharifas suit does not gather pockets of water. The water wicks away. I ordered this suit and would order many more from them. I cannot wait to see if they get a young toddler girls line! Thankyou for such a great product. Shipping was super fast as well.

I simply love my swimwear! Had to buy a larger size for it to fit me loosely, but that did not bother me. It's all about the correct fit, not the size on the label. The color contrast is great, doesn't make you look matronly. I like it so much, I bought one as an Eid gift for someone and I have two of them.
Posted by Unknown on 16th Aug 2012
As the headline says, my husband and I thought I would look completely dumb so we had held off on buying one of these for about 5 years. Seriously. My friend got one and I decided she didn't look so ridiculous after all! I bought mine and was worried about the stripe and fit and omg it looks CUTE. It seriously looks cute! My husband is looking forward to being seen next to me on the beaches of Hawaii and in the pool back at home. So go for this! :)
It fits great. I will say that the hijab part is tight around my neck but that may be because I bought a small and am on the edge of a medium.. (going to be swimming and working out a lot now so I slim down and then I will see if it is still tight)
I haven't swam in it yet and won't for a few weeks but I am excited.
the customer service people were excellent and very helpful too! Thanks!!

Great customer service. Swimsuit with long shirt worked great in water. Breathable. Water proof. Comfy and stretchy with a great cover. I like loose fitted clothes and it was providing good cover. Would recommend it to other friends.

I was surprised at how quickly I received my outfit. I ordered it on Friday night and it was delivered to me by Monday at noon. The fit is perfect and the material is water-proof. I've been on vacation in a hotel this whole week and have been using my swimsuit almost daily. I love that it dries quickly. I also love that you can connect the pants and top. Wonderful product! Thank you!!

Loved the Sportiva Swimsuit. Fit really well while they style is modest, yet stylish. Service was excellent by AlSharifa with great customer Service. They expedited the package for free and dealt with my exchange efficiently. Thank you!

I received the gray and turquoise suit in the mail promptly. The fit is perfect and the material is top notch. I haven't used it in the water yet. I will use it in July when we go on vacation, inshAllah. I would give it only 4stars because I don't know yet how well it were perform in the water. But I think it will be quick drying based on the fabric. Thank you for your excellent service.

As an aquatics proffessional with the Parks and Planning Commission, performance and professionalism mean a lot to me. I couldnt be more impressed by both the performance of ur swimwear and the professionalism of ur staff. Whether teaching lessons, talking to patrons or eating lunch poolside, i am cool and comfortable. Best of all, one of the teens in my youth program said "hey miss jameka, great suit". And it really is. U can actually swim in it and not just wade and splash. Thanks so much for a great product.

a couple of weeks ago i purcahsed the sportiva swimsuit from your site and i just wanted to say jazakallahu khair! it's amazing, mashaallah. it fits perfectly, exactly according to the size standard advertised on your website. it is exceptionally high quality construction and fabric, it looks great on and it arrived in about 3 business days even though it was international shipping! even more impressive is that you can actually swim in this suit, not just splash around. fantastic! i have recommended it to all my friends!
