To all of those people who think it is more "liberating" to wear a bikini than an Abaya:
Have you ever worn an abaya by choice?
I have worn both. I feel like that makes my opinion more valid on this subject.
My advice to you...
DON'T KNOCK IT UNTIL YOU TRY IT!
You can feel sorry for me if you want, but be sure that I'm feeling sorry for you and your women.
