size guide

At The Covered Collection we hand make each and every piece. Our stylish and contemporary pieces are designed to be oversized and offer a very modest fit. All measurements are displayed in inches.


The Bust and Hip sizes listed are indicative of body measurements only. The actual garment bust fitting will be between 5-6 inches larger than the maximum Bust measurement and between 7-8 inches larger than the maximum Hip measurements for each size group, giving the garment the oversized fit.If you do wish your garment to have a very loose fit, you can always go up one size.


The length is available in sizes 50″, 52″, 54″, 56″ & 58″. The length is measured from the highest point of the shoulders down to the base of the shoe/heel. Traditionally, the length of an abaya (a loose fitting, long line cloak) would fall to the base of the feet. But if the garment would like to be worn shorter, you may select a shorter length.


Our garments fit up to a standard size XL (UK size 20-22) and length 58 inches. If you require the length and/or width of the item customised for your size, select 'Custom'* in the drop-down menu when choosing your size, and then in the 'Order Notes' field on the Checkout page, enter your desired length, your bust and hip measurements (and if you’re a petite size, your shoulder and arm measurements) all in inches. Measure the fullest part of your bust and hips.

*there may be a surcharge for customising the garment. The total price of the garment including the customisation fee is listed on each product page.
