Ok so I’m back again after almost two years of having this abaya - and I am so, so happy with the quality and how it’s held up. I wear it all the time and still get compliments each time I wear it! There’s been very little pilling or any other fabric degradation, as long as you spot clean and wash and dry carefully, this abaya should last you a while! Excellent, and I sincerely hope they release some more button abayas in different colors because I absolutely will purchase and know many others who plan to as well.
I love the color and the flow. I can mix and match with my other Al-Shams purchases. I am a bit top heavy, so it kind of picks off the length in front. I will probably have been able to do with an extra inch in length. Regardless, it is beautiful!
It's very well made, I recommend it. Though there are some cons: it's much more purple than the picture shows, the snap buttons are made of cheap plastic and don't feel secure, and the fabric snags very easily. It is beautiful though, and flows gracefully. I've gotten lots of comments!
I’m so pleased with the Chanda Abaya The quality of the material is amazing Very soft and at same time elegant I would recommend this❤️
I managed to catch this abaya on sale for a great price, and I'm SOOOO glad I finally bought it. The abaya is soft and falls very elegantly, and I think it will be great for hot and muggy summers because the material is quite breatheable and not see-through at all. The matching shayla is very nice as well. My only complaint is the snap buttons are weak, I'll probably need to re-sew them on, but other than that this abaya deserves more stars than I can give it. Also, the colour has a slight mauve tone to it that you can't really see in the pictures, but I think it's even more gorgeous and it looks really nice on just about any skin tone. Thank you, Al-Shams!
