There is no reason to be concerned about the dress code. You can wear what you want to wear - the way people dress in Europe is probably closest. If you're American, just don't wear tiny shorts with the bottom of your butt cheeks on display and there's no reason for in-your-face cleavage. No worries about hiding your shape. The average Bahraini woman is plenty curvaceous and they walk tall and proud. Other residents - arab and non-arab dress well, wear clothes that fit well and since it's the Gulf, women wear make-up like it's costume or halloween everyday. This is a cosmopolitan country and people are warm and liberal for the most part.

No need to worry about your dressing. You can wear what you want. Just wear modestly. On public beaches you have to be a little covered up coz bikinis are not allowed. Private beaches you can do or wear whatever you like. Bahrain is tourist welcoming country and we would like to welcome you.

As a U.K. tourist here currently I'd say you've nothing to be worried about! Don't do anything common sense tells you is inappropriate, especially around religious areas, and you'll fit in fine.
