Size Guide for Thawbs & Abayas

How To Measure For Your Thawb

Al Thawb Size Guide

Our Thawb size guide below is approximate only. Use our measuring tips and refer to the table below to determine your size.

To choose the correct size for you, measure your body as follows:

Chest – Measure around fullest part
Waist – Measure around natural waistline
Stomach – Measure around the fullest part
Hips – Measure 20cm down from the natural waistline
Full Length – Measure from the shoulder line to just above the ankles
Arm length – Measure from the shoulder line to the wrist line
Our measurements are in inches.

To find your measurements, the best thing you can do is to measure a garment that fits you well. So for example: Lay a thawb that fits you well flat and measure the waist. If the distance is 16 inches, then the waist measurement is 32 inches.

Each thawb has it’s own sizing table.
