Um, don't show your belly when wearing your abaya

Do I have to say it? When you are wearing hijab I shouldn't have to see your hairline----or your belly button! Please, those marketing Islamic merchandise, get a hold on yourselves and remember your audience. This is a beautiful abaya, and a beautiful model. You have somehow made each of them kinda trashy.
I'd be okay if I saw Brittany Spears and Christina wearing this, but not a Muslimah or model for Muslimahs! Gahhhhhhhhh.
I still want this abaya. I'd just wear a jalibiyia under it.
And maybe it's lemon juice, but don't do an Islamic advertisement featuring what could be mistaken for a not-so-Islamic beverage.

Keeping the model aside, this Abaya is literally beautifull......i love butterfly Abayas and this one combines the beauty of butterfly Abaya with front open flowing detail..........lovely!!!

i would rather wear it with a cute tunic or a long shirt(pakistani qameez u say) with FULL SLEEVES..........

It's a gorgeous abaya, too bad they're using sex and unidentified beverages to sell it. I have heard that some women in the gulf wear open abayas with revealing clothing under them, perhaps they're targeting that group.

aisha said...

gosh where did u find those pics?the problem is not with glass she's holdin in hand but rather with the style those pics are kept in!she's showin her belly,arms and hair,looks simply provocative and cheap so when u see this pic with drink u get an irresistible impression that theres some alcohol drink inside!its looks offending for me cos showing abaya this way doesn't make this outfit more attractive for potential buyers-firstly cos abaya is the most beautifull while worn with the consideration of all islamic rules,secondly cos women interested in abayas are mostly muslim,so this kind of advert would discourage them,u say about britney or christina well i think this type of girls even dont look for abaya so whats the reason for making such a advertisment?

All: it is a LITTLE ridiculous, no? LOL. Oh well. Pretty farasha with just enough ooomph to the sleeves. Gotta see past the ridiculous attempts at high fashion this year.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!
BELLY BUTTONS!!!
What on earth will they think of next to showcase under abayas See thru brest covers?

Oops did i give them ideas?

I personally don't liek these "butterfly" open abayas because most don't have anything islamic under them.
