It appears that it is not simply Muslim countries arresting people for walking around in bathing suits after complaints of tourists walking around with “hairy chests.” French officials are now threatening male tourists in France with $48 fines for walking around without their shirts on and may soon begin sanctioning women walking around in bikinis at seaside places like Cannes and St. Tropez.
The British tourists have been specifically singled out for such prior conduct. What is interesting is that (according to the article below) Spain appears to be following suit, no pun intended.
It is not clear if the Burkini would be allowed.
I guess my dream of walking through Cannes in my Mankini is now crushed.
