Abaya Measurement Guide

Shown in the size chart are the abaya dimensions (hip, bust and length) for each size label. Use a tape measure to get your bust and hip measurement. Then using the chart below, choose a size with a bust size that is 6 inches bigger than your actual bust measurement OR a hip size that is 8 inches bigger than your actual hip measurement.

For example, your measurements are as follows:
Bust: 34 inches
Hip: 38 inches
Abaya Bust: 34 + 6 = 40 inches.
Abaya Hip: 38 + 8 = 46 inches

  • Bust: Measure around the fullest part of bust keeping the tape straight across back.
  • Hips: Measure around the fullest part of hip/seat, about 8" (20cm) below waist line.
  • Length: Stand upright and measure from top of shoulder to below ankles for full abaya length measurement.
