Our Signature Jilbab Top is our twist on the two piece French jilbab style, offering modesty, comfort, and functionality. The jilbab is designed with an integrated stretch headband, allowing the face opening to fit comfortably around your face and making it unnecessary to wear a hijab or underscarf with it. There is also a stretch jersey piece under the chin that provides added comfort and can be worn to cover the chin if desired. The jilbab also features stretch cuffs with attached thumb loops to prevent your arms from becoming exposed.
The sleeved style of the Signature Jilbab Top completely covers the top part of the body, allowing it to be worn with a variety of other garments. Pair it with our Essentials Sleeveless Abaya (sold separately) or a simple skirt for better ventilation without the added bulk of a sleeved abaya.
Our Signature Jilbab Top is made of high quality Bahraini Crepe which has a slightly silky texture allowing it to fall and flow beautifully. The fabric is comfortable, breathable and suitable for all seasons, and pairs excellently with other fabrics. The simplicity and practicality of the design makes it ideal for wearing everyday, when praying, and just about anywhere.
This style is worn on the head (as opposed to on the shoulders), allowing the fabric to fall away from the body for superior coverage. The jilbab does not have ties to affix it behind the head and instead stays in place by slipping your face through the face opening (similar to a khimar).
Size Medium fits comfortably on sisters who are 4'11" - 5'6" tall (150cm - 168cm)
Size Large fits comfortably on sisters who are 5'6" - 6'0" tall (168cm - 183cm)
The model in our images is 5'2" tall (158cm) and is wearing a size Medium in our Signature Jilbab Top - Thigh Length, paired with our Essentials Sleeveless Abaya in size 54 (sold separately). Our Signature Jilbab Top is pictured as shown - there is no additional underscarf, hijab, or niqab worn with it in our images.
