#watchusmove


According to YouGov reaserch, 32% of women don’t feel comfortable swimming in public. In the Middle East, that number is 88%. Because conventional swimwear is not made with them in mind. Resulting in fewer women wanting to pursue aquatic sports every year.At one of the most visited beaches of the region, Adidas turned every woman in Dubai into an ambassador for its new inclusive swimwear collection.By creating the Liquid Billboard. The world’s first billboard that women could actually swim in.
