Measurement Tips To Achive an Apporopriate Islamic Fit

Have someone help you take your measurements if you can, Insha’Allah....

While you are fully dressed is a good time to take your measurements... this extra inch will come in handy when you are looking for just that perfect hang from your Abaya...

If for some reason you find that you fall somewhere in between measurements, then you may want to order the next size larger, Insha’Allah..

Always measure using the beginning/start of the measuring tape....

As Sister we always want to the smallest size possibe, but this is one time you really do want your true body measurements... so don’t pull to hard on the tape.....

Check to see if the bust and hips measurments listed under each size match your actual messaurments, Insha’Allah......

Okay this is my last time saying this... Please remember it is better to ahve your item too big then too small so Insha’Allah don’t forget that extra inch that is needed to insure no tightness Insha’Allah.    

You can alway feel free to send us and email if you want to know the exact measurement of a specific Abaya or Jilbab..... you can reach us at:  Customer Support

MEASURING INSTRUCTIONS:

Bust
As stated earlier, if possible, get a friend to help you. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of the bust, keeping the tape parallel to the ground.

Waist
Measure around your waist where your pants usually fall. Keep one finger between the tape and your body.

Hips
Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the ground.
