Time for a product review!

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh!
This ones for the ladies out there. Most of my product reviews I'll be doing will be aimed at the ladies, since it's quite difficult for me to review men's products. I wouldn't know where to start, for e.g. how do I know this cream is making my beard softer or Does this topi make me look fat? etc.
So what I'm reviewing today is a site called Aab UK. You can access it here.
I've used this site twice now. The first time I have to admit I was extremely disappointed, but that was my fault for not understanding the description properly! I didn't understand umbrella cut actually meant 'tent'. The second time I bought something, I loved it! Masha'Allah what a stunning jilbab.

Pretty huh?
It was very pricey though, which is the norm on Aab. However, if it's for a special occasion such as Eid, or you need a nice jilbab for dawaats etc. then it is definitely worth it. I bought this particular one for Eid, however after Eid I shortened it (so it didn't drag across the floor) & it's perfect to wear on a nice summery day.
One criticism I have however is that it may not be exactly how you see it in the picture & also the material may not be exactly what you want. For example, the sleeves on this seem as though it's gathered at the bottom (one of the reasons why I fell in love with it), but when you get it, it's not that case at all. It's just your standard sleeve. However, the rest of it was so pretty that this didn't really bother me. In regards to the material, a lot of the jilbabs are soft linen which means if you keep it all nice & don't wear it tooo often then it won't bobble, otherwise it probably will!
The jilbab was sent out pretty fast too. I was a little worried that it wouldn't arrive quickly, however, I got it within 2 days of ordering it, Alhamdulillah. I have a bad tendency to leave everything until the very last minute & then start panicking, but it came just in time for Eid. Yay.
