Online shopping for abaya can either be stressful or fabulously fun. There is practically no limit to the designs, prints, patterns, and styles available out in the market today! You can let yourself be overwhelmed by the choices you have, or shift your perspective and enjoy yourself instead—it’s all about your attitude when it comes to purchasing abayas online. While some people still think that shopping for an abaya from a website is more prone to errors and buyer’s remorse as opposed to when you’re at an actual brick-and-mortar store, nothing could be farther from the truth. Shopping online for abayas is easy, breezy, and fuss-free—and our tip-top tips can make sure of that!
1. Browse collections when you’re online shopping for abaya
The best stores online when you’re browsing for abayas will have curated collections that can make choosing The One so much easier. To speed up the process for you, make sure that you shop for abayas from a website that has sub-menus and separate pages for different collections. These can be categorized further into particular designs, colours, fabric, or occasions. You can take your pick from embroidered and embellished collections for when you’re feeling fancy, or plain monochromatic collections on casual days out strolling along the park.
Buying an abaya online shouldn’t have to be this hard! Collections can easily show you search results you otherwise would have to scour the Internet for in a single, handy-dandy, one-stop-shop page. Collections also show you other unique variations of the styles if you want to stay consistent with your overall look. For instance, the Batwing Collection makes it loads more convenient for you when you’re shopping for abayas with quirky sleeves online. The Libas Abaya also features subtle folds on the chest to add a little bit of oomph to your overall look.

2. Check size guides when purchasing abayas online
One of the biggest challenges when online shopping for abaya is figuring out if the sizing is accurate. Checking out the return policy of the online store where you’re buying an abaya can be extremely useful so that you have a last resort in case your order doesn’t fit well, but why go through that at all? The best thing you can do is to make sure that you have the right size from the get-go so that you won’t have to figure out how to return a disappointing purchase.
Browsing size guides for abayas online means knowing your own measurements. Make sure that the site has specs for the overall length of the piece, as well as the measurement of the hips. Take this Ocean Abaya, for example. Check the sleeve length from neck to wrist, and the sleeve width as well. It’s best to check all measurements in both cm and inches just to be on the safe side. Find equivalents for small, medium, and large sizes for all kinds of sizing (that is, UK, US, international, etc.). These factors can make sure that you won’t have to deal with the hassle of receiving wrong sizes when you’re shopping online for abayas of your dreams.

3. Shop for the right abaya fabric online
Shopping for abayas online means that you won’t be able to touch and feel the fabric of the clothing physically. You will have to rely on the description of the abayas you’re browsing for online, or you can also check different customer reviews if available. Before you make your purchase, think about where you’re going to use the abaya in the first place. Do you have an upcoming special occasion you need to attend? Do you have a romantic date coming up? Are you gearing up for an important religious event? Or do you simply want to make yourself feel good with a beautiful new abaya over your casual everyday jeans? Knowing the reason behind your purchase will help you determine the fabric you need.
For instance, on hot summer days, casual cotton abayas are breathable and lightweight. If it’s a little bit chilly outside, you can use an open abaya as an outer layer regardless of what you’re wearing underneath. If you’re dressing up for a fancy evening event, this Ruth Abaya has a classy deep red shade with black lace accents to make sure you’re at the height of elegance and sophistication as you glide through that evening occasion. Shopping online for abayas shouldn’t be a disadvantage if you know which fabric to pick!
