Our Essentials Khimar is designed with a slip-on face opening and has plenty of room in its width to modestly cover all body sizes. Our Full Length model falls full length in the back and to the mid-thigh in the front (depending on your height), modestly covering the body. The khimar is traditionally worn as a hijab with an underscarf underneath but may also be worn as a cape (on the shoulders) with a separate hijab on top.
The khimar is made of premium quality Grand Crepe which has a smooth and slightly silky feel to it, allowing it to drape beautifully away from the body. The fabric is lightweight and non-transparent making it suitable for all seasons, yet is not so light that it will easily blow around in the wind.
- The model in our images is 5'9" tall (175cm) and is wearing the Essentials Khimar - Full Length with our Simplicity Umbrella Abaya (sold separately and tagged below).
- The khimar does not have ties and needs to be worn with an underscarf to properly cover the hair. It is pictured worn with our Tube Underscarf (sold separately)
- The Full Length model measures 66" from the top of the head down and will reach the ankles (at the back) on a sister who is 5'4" (approx. 162cm) tall. The way it fits on you will depend on your height and body size.
