Is it just me, or does it seem like thin people can get away with wearing less fabric but still look incredibly modest...?!? I mean... I have to wear layers and layers and a super wide shayla to get everything covered. I mean alhamdulillah for the body that I have of course, but I think that maybe it would be a little easier to be modest if my body was more cooperating. It is even difficult for me to find a shayla or scarf that is actually wide enough to provide total coverage. And Turkish hijab? I will never be able to wear it... Sometimes I wish I could try other hijab styles, but I pretty much just have to stick to one.
Oh anyways, me just being silly. I like the way layers look and if I wrap the sayla just right I can leave a big chunk hanging down, so really no harm done. :-P
I you are wondering what brought this on... I recieved a hijab as a gift from one of the ladies at the masjid when I converted. MashaAllah she is so very sweet. Anyway, it is a very nice light airy hijab in a dusky pink and I would DEARLY love to wear it, but it just isn't enough to give good coverage... but maybe I will layer it with another scarf or something... inshaAllah I will find a way. :-D
