All international deliveries are via Standard International Signed For Delivery via Royal Mail which takes approximately 5-7 working days to deliver (after date of dispatch).Countries such as the US, Canada and Europe all take approximately this long to deliver.
Please note, some parts of the world can take up to several weeks to be delivered. This includes countries such as South Africa and also parts of the Middle East. There may also be cases where parcels sent to these regions get lost, if this is the case, a partial refund will be issued six weeks after dispatch if the parcel is still not delivered.

DelaysWe use the Royal Mail service which gives us an approximate timeframe on when the parcel will be delivered to your door. However, there may be times when delays occur. This can occur any time especially during public holidays such as Christmas, Easter and bank holidays. We cannot be held for any delays caused as once the parcel has been dispatched by us, it is then the responsibility of the Royal Mail service for you to receive your parcel on time.
Made To Order
When ordering a made to order item, please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for us to process and dispatch your order.
As well as having abayas available for made to order we also have abayas which are in stock ready for immediate dispatch (under the Ready To Dispatch link). If a customer is to place an order on a made to order item alongside a ready to dispatch item, the order will not be dispatched until the pre-order item is ready.There may be rare occasions where pre-orders take slightly longer than usual due to unforeseen circumstances or busy seasons such as Ramadan. If a delay is expected, we will notify our customers of this. If you have a specific date you want to receive your pre-order by, please get in touch before ordering to ensure we can get your order delivered by that date.
Unclaimed Parcels sent back to the sender from overseas (Outside of UK)
On unfortunate occasions, parcels are sent back to us if they are not claimed by the buyer at the address provided. In these circumstances, shipping fees would have to be repaid in order to send out the parcel for the second time.
The customer can ask for a refund instead if the item(s) is a Ready To Dispatch product but this would be minus any shipping fees.
If the item(s) is a Made To Order item, only a partial refund will be issued. This is minus any shipping fee plus 45% (including any manufacturing costs and restocking fees).
We will not take responsibility for any incorrect address details provided or for the parcels not being claimed by the buyer.
* Please make sure to provide us with the correct address, as we will not be held responsible for costs incurred or lost packages due to errors in address details *
Abayas are made to be of loose fitting and the sizes are more related to height. For example, a size 50 means the abaya is 50 inches in length. In general and as a rule of thumb, our pre-order and open abayas are suitable for all sisters up to size 14 UK size. The belt provided with the abaya is what gives the abaya a more fitted look if this is what is desired.
Here is a guideline for which size you would be according to your height:
Please note, if you would like to wear heels with the abaya, please order one size higher to what has been recommended for your height.
The following tables are the exact measurements used when making the abayas. The difference between Regular and Slim Fit is approximately 2/3 inches in width as shown below:
If you would like a more fitted abaya which is made to measure, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can process that for you.
If you are above size 14 UK size you can pre-order the abaya which would be suitable for your height. After doing so please email us with your bust measurements in inches and we will then make a made to measure abaya which fits around your particular measurements.
PLEASE NOTE: Our made to measure service is only applicable to pre-order abayas.
