Many of us think that when we go to Morocco it means covering up as much skin as possible to avoid any sort of confrontation. Whilst you probably shouldn’t walk around in booty shorts or your skimpiest bikini there is a way to enjoy the sun, wear your swimwear and still look super cute while you do it!
Our team at Bikini Culture have put together a few suggestions for your swimwear wardrobe in Morocco to keep you looking great and feeling fab whilst immersing yourself in a culture which is more conservative than you’re used to.
Our top tips:
Avoid crazy prints or bright colours.
If you don’t want to attract too much attention avoid anything too crazy. A simple black or block coloured bikini is perfect. Maybe leave the itsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini at home for this trip! Peony have some beautiful solid colour bikinis: Off the shoulder one piece in sangria is a great choice because it lightly covers your shoulders and provides reasonable coverage on the bottom.
Wear high waisted bikini bottoms or one pieces
It is always better to cover as much skin as possible so a one piece might just be your answer, not to mention they are so on trend now and super flattering ;) Our Hunza G one pieces are not too skimpy and provide a perfect amount of coverage to make you feel comfortable poolside.
Avoid g-string or skimpy cut bottoms
A g-string is an absolute no no, save those for your next trip to Brazil or Ibiza! Showing your peach, though it may be lovely, will most likely offend some people and bring on some negative comments. Try a slightly fuller brief or wear a sarong for some extra coverage! Camilla have some stunning kaftans- perfect for those instagram moments and perfectly 'modest' ;)
Walking around the city or spending time in rural areas of Morocco you really should consider wearing more loose fitting clothing and perhaps a kaftan with sleeves. It is important not to offend any of the locals so remember to cover up your chest and knees, it also means you won’t get hassled or attract the wrong kind of attention. When you’re in your hotel or riad however, wearing your bikini or one piece is perfectly acceptable!
