Please take a minute and follow our easy measurement guide and find your best fitting size.

 

Tips of measuring    

It’s always better to have someone help you take your measurements if you can.

Take measurements over your clothing so it won't be to tight when you are fully clothed and if you are in-between measurements, then you may want to order the next larger size, Insha’Allaah.

Always measure using the beginning / start of the measuring tape, and take  your true body measurements, (meaning don't pull on the tape).

Bust  ~ Measure under arms around fullest part of your bust. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.

Hip ~ Measure around fullest part of body’s hip area. Keep feet together and tape parallel to floor.

For plus size Muslimahs, you may want to take into consideration the waist/stomach measurements if this area is larger then your hip area, then use this measurement, (by using the larger of the two measurments will help to ensure your garment won't hug your tummy area, Insha'Allah).

Length ~ Measure from highest part of shoulder,(nearest to your neck,) and straight down your back of your heel, or until the length you would like your garment to reach. 

 For Overhead Abayas: Measure from the center-top of your head (where you will be letting your overhead abaya rest), down the back of your head, and straight down the middle of your back to the floor. 

Sleeve Length ~ Measure from shoulder edge, and straight down your arm to after wrist joint by 1 inch, or up until the length you would like your sleeves to reach.

Another Measurement Option:   You can measure another Abaya, Jilbab or Caftan that you already own that fits you well.  Do this by laying the garment flat on the bed or floor with the front facing downward, and measure the bust, hips, sleeve length, and garment length. Be sure to multiply the bust and hip measurements by 2 when comparing them to the measurements of the garment you are interested in.  Each of or garment listings have the pacific size measurement for that item. .

Check the size chart below to see if one of  the bust, and hips measurements listed, matches your actual measurement.

How to use the size chart:
Shown in the size chart below are the exact dimensions for the USA Women’s Dress, bust and hip measurements (found in the 1st set of columns).  The 2nd set of columns contains the corresponding average Abaya size.  Once you have your measurement, use the below size chart to find your garment size.

At the very least your actual body measurements should be a minimum of 4 - 6 inches smaller than the garment measurements in the bust and hip area. 

For a basic comfortable Islamic fit Insha'allah, we suggest that it is best to choose a size with a bust size that is 6 inches bigger than your actual bust measurement, and/or a hip size that is 8 inches bigger than your actual hip measurement,

For example, your measurements are as follows:

Your Actual Body Measurements are: Your bust is: 34 inches, and your hip’s are 36 inches. 

Our Recommendation would be to add inches to you measurements as follows:  Your Bust: 34 + 6 = 40 inches, and Your hip’s : 36 + 8 = 44 inches.

Using the example of a 40” bust, and a 44” hip, according to the below size chart this corresponds to a size Small (S). If you are in between two sizes, you may want to consider going with the larger of the two sizes.

Always remember it is better to have your item too big rather than too small, so it is always best to add a minimum of 4 additional inches or more to your actual body measurement /size to ensure no tightness.

For the Best Fit:  It is important to note that , all of the measurements that we provide on our product page, are those of the actual garments, not your body size. You will therefore want to take this into account when calculating your size, leaving yourself some extra room. We recommend you measure a garment that fits you well and use those measurements as a reference.

 Please note that the US sizes are only used as a reference, they might not be accurate for everyone. You can always feel free to send us an e-mail at customerservice@reflectionsofIman (or see our contact us page) if  you need additional measurement information for a specific Abaya or for any of our garments.

Reflections of Iman Women Abaya Size Chart

Please measure yourself carefully prior to placing an order. The table below provides a general guideline for body and garment measurements.  Individual garments may vary due to differences in cut and style.

Bisht Style abayas are cut to the width of the fabric and usually fit most body shapes just fine. Malhafa or Farasha style abayas (also known as butterfly style) can either be cut to the full width of the fabric but have defined arm shapes, or they can be similar to a regular abaya, but the additional fabric is left along the sides to create a fluttery effect. Different abaya styles fit each body type different so be sure to consider your personal shape and style when making a selection.

The garment measurements listed below are only approximations and actual measurements may differ slightly based on designs.  For more accurate garment measurements, see the actual item listing for exact  garment detail measurements.
