Need to buy a girl's burqini in the US
February 15, 2014 2:33 PM Subscribe
My friend's daughter has Juvenile Dermatomyositis, a disease which includes extreme sun sensitivity. Being out in the sun makes her sick for days afterwards. That being said, she was granted a wish trip, and they gave her a trip to Florida to swim with dolphins. She needs to cover up, and she and her family would like her to be happy with the cover-up. Burqinis swim suits that have tunic tops or ruffles, along with full coverage, would fit the bill.

The problem is, the trip is fast approaching, and I cannot find a site in the US that could ship and have it be here in a month - I worry that shipping from overseas might result in it arriving after they need to leave. She is 9 years old, and would need a girls size suit, with FULL coverage, including to wrist and ankle. If not a burqini or fully modest Muslim dress, a cute full rash guard suit with girly attributes and UVA protection would also fit the bill.
Thanks for the help.
