Classy and Comfortable Bisht Abaya

2 roses


Bisht abaya also known as Mislah is one of my favorite clothing as its free width falls and flows elegantly makes the style modest, classy and comfortable with large hijab to match.

The style is designed with a cut that is similar to butterfly abaya, however unlike the butterfly abaya, it has no seam to define the body or sleeves, which provides superior coverage, thus giving us a very modest look.

This abaya has also been compared to the traditional overhead open cut abaya, but instead of being worn on the head, it is worn on the shoulders.

The open sizing is one of the best things about the Bisht style abaya. This style of abaya does not require bust or hip sizing due to its open width design, which allows it to fit loosely on almost every body type.

For mother to be and for some of us whose weight fluctuates and so as our body shape, this style is just what we need without looking over bloom?

The style normally comes with a large matching hijab for better coverage. The hijab is usually made of premium chiffon and is adorned with the same detailing or embroidery as the abaya.

The abaya is sometimes designed with a zipper opening at the neck that can provide extra space to accommodate nursing mothers.

You can also find this abaya with embroidery adorn the cuffs and neck opening and sometimes accented by crystals, making it perfect for special occasions.

With high quality fabric that is soft, smooth and has a medium weight, allows the abaya to drape beautifully. The soft lovely flow of this Bisht style abaya makes for a modest, comfortable, and elegant style.

Sizing Tips

When choosing the size for your Bisht abaya, the only two measurements you need to keep in mind are the length and the sleeve span. The width will fit regardless of any body size. However, if you are larger than size 4X you may want to consider the width.

The sleeve span measurement is important since it affects the way the sleeves and shoulders fit. To measure your sleeve span, take an abaya or jilbab that fits you well. Lay the garment on the floor or bed. Spread the sleeves of the garment straight out in a 'T' shape. Take the measuring tape and measure from the start of one sleeve, across the front of the garment to the end of the other sleeve, (you are measuring from the end tip of one sleeve to the end tip of the other sleeve). This is your sleeve span.

For comfortable fit, the sleeve span of your Bisht should be equal or close to the actual sleeve span of the abaya you just measured, Insha'Allah.
