I thought I would continue with my ‘top 5 tips’ theme, and I came up with a few tips for wearing abaya. So i hope you find them beneficial insha Allah
1- Make sure your abaya is loose! I know it sounds like I am stating the obvious.. but many sisters wear their abayas way too small.. Dont worry about what the sizing tells you.. I have abayas ranging from S-XL and they all look the same size!
2- Wear a loose/wide skirt under your abaya.. If you ever wore an abaya in windy weather you will appreciate this tip insha Allah. This helps keep the abaya off your body and less likely to define your shape when walking or when a bit windy. Go and try it 😉 Wear your abaya with a tight skirt/pants and then with a loose skirt underneath and compare the difference in the mirror 🙂
3- Keep it simple!.. Many sisters over-compensate for wearing abaya by wearing them with too much bling. It is supposed to be simple… So keep it simple 😉
4- Do yourself a favour, and buy an overhead abaya!.. I only have one and I LOVE it, only problem is that we dont have them here in Australia.. They are super comfortable and easy to wear.. I just wish they sold more here 😦
5- Get your abayas tailor made.. Buy your own material and get another sister to sew one for you (for a fee ofcourse 🙂 ) .. This gives you some control over the quality and sizing of your abaya.
I would love to hear other abaya wearing tips from my sisters (or even brothers) .. So leave a comment insha Allah.
