Curvy Hijabi Blogger in A Skinny Hijabi Blogger World

Curvy Hijabi

Curvy hijabis can look fab too!

Salaams my lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend inshallah! I had a great one too. I spent my weekend catching up on reading all about how empowered hijabis are becoming. In fact, the rise of fashion hijabi bloggers caught the eye of The Daily Beast. It was wonderful in every single way except when I looked at all of the hijabi bloggers featured, none of them were even close to a size 6 or up. I love all of my hijabi sisters no matter what size they are, but it was so disheartening to see the lack of inclusion of any hijabis who are curvy or even plus sized.

It is already challenging to be a hijabi, now try adding curves to the mix! There are so many times where I will see a hijabi fashion blogger look absolutely darling in an outfit only to try it on and discover I look like an elephant in the very same outfit. Or I look a little TOO good for a hijabi… It’s a fine line to walk modesty with fashion if you have a fuller chest believe me. There isn’t a maxi hijab in the world that can cover my chest so I typically have to wear a cardigan or jacket to cover my assets up! It can be hard to see why a curvy hijabi would bother with trying new fashion trends. But, those trends can sometimes help you enjoy wearing hijab and feel empowered to talk to others about Islam. Fashion isn’t just about looking good, its about the confidence you get. It allows you to transform yourself into an intelligent human being who has something to say. It is definitely not about hiding in a sea of boring clothes, so take heart if you have as hard of a time styling yourself as I do.

Fellow curvy hijabis, I am here for you. It is all about taking a trend and making it your own. Are there any hijabi fashion trends that you would like me to modify and blog about? Let me know. In the meantime, keep reading for hijabi fashion tips that work for all sizes here!

  1. It is almost impossible to hide curves. I still have such a hard time being confident in my body. Thank you for this post !

    • You’re so very welcome! I know, it is challenging to be modest while being curvy. The good news is that with a few tricks like using cardigans or two scarves, coverage can be easier. Keep reading for more tips inshallah.

  2. Beautiful, I find it hard to find decent clothing that isn’t to daggy on my fuller figure; while being modest at the same time and trying to look fresh without the dull black 24/7 lol

    • Thanks Zainab. I would recommend going bold on your accessories. I typically wear long black tops but give the outfit a pop with a hot pink scarf or fun yellow purse. 🙂
