Details of the Question
Is it permissible for women to go swimming wearing swimming suits in accordance with tasattur rules?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Firstly, women are not the only people whose body parts that are necessary to be covered are open on the beach; there are also men whose body parts that are necessary to be covered are open. The women can see those men. It is haram for women to look at the body parts of men between their navels and knees.   

Secondly, the swimsuits worn by women cover the body but when water touches the swimsuit, the outlines of the body of a woman become distinct; thus, tasattur is not ensured fully. Therefore, it is not permissible to go swimming like this.
