The French Supreme Court ruled against “burqini” in public swimming facilities on Tuesday, but did not crack down on women’s public topless.

The French state council, the highest administrative court of the country, says that permitting Burqini swimwear (a full-length, discreet swimsuit worn by Muslim women) is a law against the country’s secular governance and religious influence. I ruled that it would be a violation.

Shortly after the ban was lifted, it was revived by the administrative court of Grunouble. The State Council’s decision on this issue had been expected for several weeks. Burqini was legalized with topless swimming by the city of Grenoble in May 2021 in response to public protests.

The State Council overturned the lower court’s ruling that allowed Burqini and said it was not suitable for public pools due to the religious nature of clothing and its impact on women’s rights.

France, the birthplace of bikinis, has long struggled with the standards of women’s swimwear.

In 2016, swimwear was controversial following an Islamic extremist attack on the city of Nice, France. The town began banning burqini, and police officers found Muslim women wearing women who refused to undress or leave the beach.

France is not the only place where conversations about swimwear and their lack are increasing. Nude laws banning topless women on the beach have been challenged and sometimes overturned throughout the United States.
