Size Guide

At THE ABAYA COMPANY we have tailored and designed our Abayas to be of a loose and modest fit.  When choosing your size, please take this into consideration. If you are after a slimmer fit you will need to size down.

Our Abayas are available in four sizes (see table below).  The right size for you depends on the Abaya fit you are after. For example a size small (S) abaya, can be worn by woman of dress size 8-12 depending on the type of fit you are after; a more modest fit for a size 8 and slimmer fit for a size 12.

If you are unable to find the abaya size you are after we offer a tailoring service and can adjust the abaya so it fits perfectly.

When taking measurements please follow the guide below:

Abaya length: Measure from tip of shoulder down to length that you prefer while standing in an upright position (please take into account whether you will be wearing heels or flat shoes). Someone else should take length measurement since you need to be in a normal upright posture.

Sleeve length: Measure from end of neck to the wrist going on the outside round the elbows with your arms at your side.

Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your bust area with your arms relaxed to the side

Hip: Measure around the fullest part of your hip area while standing in upright position.
