Almost half of the women who buy burkinis aren’t Muslim, the woman behind the swimsuit says.

Australian designer Aheda Zanetti is the creator of the burkini, a two or three piece swimming costume which has banned from a number of French beachfronts, but estimates that 45 per cent of her clients aren't purchasing her wares to adhere to Islamic ideas of modesty.

Indeed, she has sold over 700,000 to women across the globe and tells SBS, "we’re getting enquiries from skin cancer survivors, breast cancer survivors, there are a lot of health issues that have stopped women from having an active lifestyle.

"A lot of them a really excited to have finally found a company to provide a type of swimsuit for them to go back into the water again."

Some of her clients are people of Orthodox, Christian and Jewish faith, others simply burn easily or just don't want to wear a bikini anymore.

In fact, Ms Zanetti believes that up to 90 per cent of her sales in the last week have been from people outside of the Muslim community.

Well there you go then. Could this be the latest trend on beaches around the globe then?

yes the anti australianism by the burkini haters is terrible.

Suck it up France!
We stole it from them just like we stole wine making from you.
