As a lover of modest fashion, I know the struggle well. The countless stores where everything feels too short or too tight, and the shopping trips that leave you feeling nothing but disheartened.

This constant struggle is why I decided to start my own fashion destination, The Hijab Stylist, and begin designing my own pieces, the very first being the BB (boobs and butt) Cape, pictured here.
