How Do I Know My Size for an Abaya?

There are many different patterns and kinds of burqas. The dimensions are regular. The crucial dimensions you will require are the bust, waist, hips, sleeve length, and aba length.

Bust Measurement

As you begin, measure the largest portion of your bust. Be careful to align the measuring tape with the ground. For accuracy, make sure you are wearing your regular pants.

Waist Measurement

Measure your natural waistline at the thinnest point on your torso. It should be snug enough to be comfortable but not too tight.

Hips Measurement

Please measure around your hips and buttocks at their fullest point. Once more, ensure the tape is not too tight and parallel to the ground.

Sleeve Length

One arm should be extended straight to the side and then bowed at a 90-degree angle. Measure across your shoulder, down to your wrist, and from the back of your neck.

Length of Burqa

Determine the desired length of your abaya. Measure down to the desired aba ending from the highest point of your shoulder. When choosing the size, don't forget to consider whether you want to wear heels with your burqa.

Advice for Precise Measurements

  • For more precision, use a flexible measuring tape.
  • Take measures while maintaining an upright posture and relaxed shoulders.
  • For a more precise fit, measure over light-coloured clothes.
  • Verify each measurement again to be sure it is accurate.
