    Size guide

    SHUKR has 2 sizing's charts to help you choose the correct size: 1) a general Body Size Chart and 2) a Garment Measurements Chart for each specific clothing item. Please refer to both charts to guarantee choosing your correct size. Use the body size chart to take the measurements of your own body and the garment measurements chart to see the measurements of the actual clothing itself, which you can then compare to any item of clothing you already own to see if it is similar or not.

    How to take your body measurements:

    Height: For best results, stand barefoot next to a doorframe, and then measure from the top of the head to the bottom of your feet. Even better, get a friend or family member to do it for you.

    Bust: Measure underneath the arms around the fullest part of your bust and across the shoulder blades.

    Waist: Measure around your natural waistline (the slimmest part of the waist), keeping the tape comfortably loose.

    Hips: Measure around the widest part of your hips (normally about 8 inches (20cm) below your natural waistline).

    Lay out a similar garment you own flat on the floor or on a table. Using a soft measuring tape, take the following measurements:

    Length: Measure the centre back of the garment, from the bottom of the neckline until the end of the hem at the bottom of the garment.

    Sleeve: Measure the length of the sleeve from the point of its attachment at the top of the shoulder, to the end of the cuff hem.

    Bust: Measure immediately underneath the armhole, across the chest of the garment.

    Shoulder: Measure from the point of sleeve attachment at the top of the shoulder on one side, to the same point on the other side.

    Waist: Measure 6.5 inches (17cm) down from underneath the armhole. This gives you the waist level. Now measure across the width of the garment.

    Hip: Measure 14.5 inches (37cm) down from underneath the armhole. This gives you the hip level. Now measure across the width of the garment.

    Fabric and Care
    • Fabric: Modal 60%, Cotton 32%, Elastane 8%
    • Care: Machine wash

    Did you know?

    Modal : Modal is a softer, higher quality version of rayon. The natural origin of this fiber makes it breathable, comfortable, and incredibly soft against the skin. It’s perfect for special occasions as it has a slight sheen finish and drapes like a dream.

    Cotton : The most famous natural fiber, cotton is the most widely used textile fabric in the world. Cotton’s popularity stems from its comfort, breathability, absorbency, soft hand, durability and easy care. Look for cotton in many SHUKR designs- from tops and pants to abayas, thobes, and hats.

    Fabric Weight: SHUKR has classified the different fabrics it uses into 4 different degrees of weight in order to help the customer make an informed purchasing choice:

    1. Light weight - fabrics weighing between 75-150 grams per square metre (gsm). These fabrics are great for warmer weather and for layering all year round.
    2. Medium weight - fabrics weighing between 150-225 grams per square metre (gsm). These are fabrics which work well all year round, but might be a bit too warm for very hot summer climates.
    3. Heavy weight - fabrics weighing between 225-300 grams per square metre (gsm). These fabrics are best worn in Spring, Autumn and Winter.
    4. Extra Heavy Weight – fabrics weighing over 300 grams per square metre (gsm). These are fabrics meant to be used for the Winter season.

    Fabric Type: Some customers are interested in knowing what the fabric construction is. There are 2 basic types of fabrics, categorized according to the type of machine that makes it: woven and knitted. Woven fabrics come in 3 main sub-categories: plain weave, twill weave and satin weave. Knitted fabrics, like the popular jersey, are normally stretchy fabrics that are good for t-shirts and tops, sportswear and comfortable dresses. Apart from jersey, other common knitted fabrics are French terry, ponte de roma and rib.

    Fabric Code: SHUKR, like all companies, often uses the same fabrics for many designs. Repeat customers may like a fabric of a particular garment they purchased from SHUKR in the past and want to know what other products are available in this same fabric.
