What is the issur for a lady to go mixed swimming if she is fully dressed?

Question:

Is it assur for an older lady fully dressed with SHVIM KLEIDER to go swimming with older non jewish and irreligious jewish men?

Answer:

It is incorrect (and according to some poskim assur) for her to go to a mixed swimming pool even when she is fully dressed. The poskim say that it is a lack of tznius for her to look at the men, and to be in such a place, there is also an issue of maris ayin for her to be in such a place.
