A 26-year old woman was kicked out of a pool in the city of Zwolle for wearing a burkini. The woman was only in the water for a few minutes and had been playing with her son, before pool employees told her that there were complaints about her clothing. The manager of the pool defended the move, saying that they take into account all customer objections, including having special hours for obese pool-users. The burkini is an adapted form of swimwear that takes into account the emphasis of modesty in Islam, and minimizes skin exposure and tightness of bathing clothing.
