Product Review: Sayrah

Sayrah is a new Singaporean company who have recently launched their website. They provide clothing including skirts, tops and dresses, as well as hijabs and accessories. I was sent the Serena lace top with belt to review.

First Impressions

The top arrived from Singapore in just 6 days, and Sayrah also provided a tracking number for the order via SingPost. The package also came with a little shopper bag, which is currently being sent with orders over $60. The top itself is made of polyester chiffon, in a lovely deep purple colour, which is true to the photo on the website. There is a lace trimming around the neckline and the hem, and it also comes with a removable skinny black belt. Here's a close-up of the neckline and sleeve:


According to the website, the top is only available in sizes 12-16 UK, though these feel like they run small, and realistically the 16 is more of a 14. I ignored the actual numbers and just requested a size according to the meausurements on the size chart, and found this to be a really good fit. Although the top has an elasticated waistband, the fit around the top is still quite loose. Here's a photo (albeit in low lighting, so the colour isn't accurate) to give you an idea of the fit:


This top is really comfortable to wear and is fully lined, so you can get away with minimal layering. The sleeves are opaque although they don't have an extra lining, though in strong light and flash photography they may appear sheer. On me, the top hits just above the knee, so is great for wearing with straight-cut trousers.

The lace along the hem, especially where it overhangs the fabric, is very delicate and easily damaged, and threads do have a habit of coming loose.


I was really impressed by this top from Sayrah and it's definitely become one of my wardrobe favourites. The design is simple yet the little touches like the lace and button sleeve make it feel really special. And not forgetting of course the fact that it ticks all the boxes in terms of being hijab-friendly!

Its really cute! I love all these new modest friendly shops. Not only are they making clothing appealing to Muslim women but to non-Muslim women as well. I may have to check this out for myself! lol

Thank you so much for this review. We're so glad the design, fabric and overall cut fluidly fits well. We are looking forward to hearing more feedback from everyone for our design refinement moving forth.

Thank you so much & feel free to browse for more modest clothings. :-)

I like this it suits a lot of women . I wish there was more fashionable yet beautiful modest clothing available in places like us and canada like tops that cover the bottoms .
