Hi, I bought an Aab abaya some time ago and whilst I am not fat (UK size 10) I found the sleeves to be too fitted/tight. Would it be possible at all for you to review an Aab abaya just so they can perhaps provide looser sleeves? ANybody else have this problem?

Salaam sister hawa. I too bought an abaya from Aab.It was the Brass Class. I fell in love with it after i saw it. Sad to say not was it only tight around the arms and under-arms,neck was almost choking me and i had to Re-stich all the buttons as they were all coming off loose! Im a U.k size 12 and was advised to get a size M. Still I wont let it put me off as i find their abayas really elegant. But for the price they charge i was hoping the quality and workmanship would have been more of a high standard. Think if i order again I will go for a size L!!

Walaikum Salaam,
It is such a shame! I found that too actually, the rest of the abaya was fine and I had ordered two sizes just to get a fit however when I emailed them they said their abayas were not designed to be worn with clothing underneath. I was a bit put off by this as I DO wear clothes under my abaya. Oh well. :( Sadly I won't be ordering again until they resolve this issue. ESPECIALLY since since returns are also a bit of a pain

Walaikum Asalaam

I've had reasonably good customer experience from Aab. Don't necessarily like all the styles, so have had a hit + miss here + there. Yes, it's not a traditional black abaya that's to be worn as an outer cloak BUT I guess each to their own style. I wear them like maxi dresses. Their hijabs are beautiful. Prices? Steep! But I see that they have brought some prices down in comparison to before. I'll still buy from Aab, just a bit more picky with my choices since I've found some other stores with competitive prices + lovely styles.
