How do I know what skirt or sirwal length to choose?
Best is that you either measure a skirt you know is a good length on you, or measure yourself from hip or waist (your preference) and down to how long you want your skirt to be. You can also take a look at this size chart for guidance :
What’s the waist measurements of the skirts?
Our skirts have a elastic band to make it comfortable and suitable for most body shapes. The measurement of our standard skirt (if you don’t choose plus size) is 38 to 60 cm, meaning measured straight over the elastic band when first not stretched and then when stretched. If you choose plus size this measurement will be 50-90 cm.
What’s the length of the jilbab top/headpiece?
When you choose skirt or sirwal length the length of the jilbab will be suitable for that choice.
- 85-90 cm skirt or sirwal: 130 cm long jilbab
- 95-100 cm skirt or sirwal: 140 cm long jilbab
- 105-115 cm skirt or sirwal: 150 cm long jilbab
What’s the difference between Standard and Petite?
The difference is in the width of the jilbab. Our standard is most suitable for sisters that are 165 cm or taller, since its wider and therefore also have longer sleeves. Petite have smaller width which means it have shorter sleeves, suitable for sisters 163 cm and shorter.
- Standard: 170 cm sleeve to sleeve
- Petite: 160 cm sleeve to sleeve
We also make sleeves longer if needed.
What is Plus size?
If you choose plus size this will make the skirt wider in the waist (50-90 cm).
