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 and sirwals?
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 top part of the abaya?
When you choose skirt or sirwal length the length of the top part of the abaya will be suitable for that choice.
- 85-90 cm skirt or sirwal: 100 cm long
- 95-100 cm skirt or sirwal: 110 cm long
- 105-115 cm skirt or sirwal: 120 cm long
What’s the difference between Standard and Petite?
The difference is in the width of the abaya. 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: 150 cm sleeve to sleeve
We also make the sleeves longer if needed.
What is Plus size?
If you choose plus size this will make the skirt wider in the waist.
You can choose between 2 necklines for your abaya in sha Allah. One with a 25 cm long zipper, which is also suitable for nursing mothers, and without zipper. Please see the illustrations below to see how the necklines look (press on the images for a clearer picture):
