See-throughness and opaqueness:

Please have in mind that some of the lighter colors in the lightweight fabric might be see-through. White lightweight however will always be needed to wear something underneath.

The medium weight fabric is in all colors except ivory and pearly pink fully opaque.


Niqab straps:

You can choose to add so called "niqab straps" to your jilbab. This will enable you to wear your jilbab so that the fabric you usually wear under the chin can be lifted up to cover the face.


Ummi zipper:

When a baby needs extra closeness to their mum many of us sisters choose to wear a sling or a baby carrier. The ummi zipper, a horizontal zipper over the chest, makes it possible to wear the sling or carrier underneath the jilbab so we don't have to compromise on the conditions of the hidjaab.


Size guide

How do I know what length to choose?

If you want to have your jilbab/overhead abaya in a full length we recommend that you choose a size that is 5-8 cm longer than your own height. However if you want ankle length we recommend choosing the same length as your own height in cm.


What's the difference in Standard and Petite?
