I’m not particularly tall even though I really wanted to be. Its I often meet clients that are tall so I understand the struggle of tall ladies trying to find the right abaya that fit their body shape and the height. This is lead to the birth of this article. Though tall women look good in most of the abaya shapes there are several things to look out on how to choose an abaya for tall women in order to look absolutely dashing while standing tall in your beautiful abaya.

Things to look out while choosing an abaya for tall women:

 

1.The fitting

I can’t stress enough how important it is. A petite woman can get away with buying abaya readymade as it is easier to get you abaya shortened, but on the other hand not every abaya can have few inches added.

  • Always custom make your abaya to avoid the sleeves that don’t reach your wrist, this also allows to adjust the pocket which usually won’t be in a comfortable position when bought ready made.

2.The Importance of Color:

Add pop of color to your abaya. Dressing all in one color can make you look even more taller than you already are, so work with two colors are different texture to help define your silhouette and break the strong vertical line (Unless you want to look more taller than you already are!!!

 

3.Be Bolder with details.

Choose a abaya with bold embroidery or embellishment as the details on the abaya are less likely to be lost on a tall woman but always scale the pattern to your proportion, don’t go for bold embroidery all over abaya instead have the bold embroidery either on top or bottom half so there is sense of balance in your abaya.

 

4.Short abaya/ankle length with awesome shoes.

I just love this one because I got a love for shoes and I think this is one of the biggest reasons I miss being tall. Tall women are perfect candidate for wearing a short abaya or ankle length abaya,it is right abaya to show off your shoes and it add a modern look to your abaya.
