    I think all this brand need to learn from Uniqlo Hana Tajima Collection in order to cater to modest fashion. Uniqlo did a wonderful collection for it.

      I personally have been very disappointed with the Hana Tajima Collections, I've gone on to give away most of the clothes I've gotten from her collections. Most of the tops are see through and have awkward necklines, the dresses sit strangely, the trousers look grandma-y. The prices are good but the same issue as H&M remains in the sense that you still have to wear long sleeve tops underneath, etc

    H&M has always been "modest" so long as you put a long shirt under or whatever. I mean, I grew up in a religious Jewish community and we all shopped there because the stuff was not too pricey and with some thought could be made modest for Jewish standards. I get that other cultures might have more of a challenge, but this kinda strikes me as weird because they are making modesty an "ethnic" thing when it really doesn't have to be.

    • Gotcha Covered Fashion
      Gotcha Covered Fashion 2 years ago

      Yeah, I definitely can see what you mean, Hannah. Seems like they should have done more homework of what people actually want out of modesty instead of just jumping to conclusions.

    • Zara Royce
      Zara Royce 3 years ago

      Chana Weinstein yeah it’s definitely not an ethnic thing I think that’s one of the problems, I think it also has to do with the fact that there have not really been in the Western/Caucasian women on RU-clip who dress modestly so people‘s understanding of it is usually always in correlation with Middle Eastern/Asian culture some people are just going with what they know from what I’ve seen

    • Ay BayBay
      Ay BayBay 4 years ago

      Chana Weinstein, true that. By I honestly stopped going in h&m since that hoody incidence.
      Nowadays, I just go to Costco. It may sound dorky but Costco got good clothes.

  • intan junior
    intan junior 4 years ago +144

    I soo agree with dina! Why bother selling ethnic dresses when i can get them half price in my own community?
    H&M needs to learn from Uniqlo! It’s a Japanese clothing line and about 2-3 years ago, they collaborated with a muslim british-japanese designer to create a line of modest clothings! It’s really good!! They even have the essentials such as inner headscarf, scarf more more! The collection is chic and goes in line with the company’s market! Check it out!

  • Tulip Purple
    Tulip Purple 4 years ago +303

    Exactly. Just clothes you would find in the store regularly, except longer sleeves, higher neckline, full length, etc.
    Modest clothing doesn't have to involve 'ethnic' or 'foreign' influence.

    • dukeofpkr
      dukeofpkr 2 years ago

      But then isn’t there a difference in concept of modesty between different cultures ? For a western person a half sleeve dress that ends at the knee is still modest but if they have to make modest clothes for a Muslim they have to make clothes that cover the legs fully and the arms and the neck . It does become ethnic and religious . So either wear all clothes or atleast appreacite the effort they have made

    • A S Chowdhry
      A S Chowdhry 4 years ago +1

      Tulip Purple I don’t mean to sound rude, I’m just asking because I’m confused... If we don’t want it to include ethnic clothes (which I totally agree with) that means we want it to include western clothes right but accommodated to our needs. So obviously they’re going to have longer sleeves, higher neckline and full length. I actually don’t mind that because I really like the things in store but get annoyed when the sleeves are short. Can somebody please explain?

  • Jetta.Silence

    Ty for counting in all of us non muslim modest dressers. I dress modestly because thats how I am. Its a personal choice. But i dont want to have to wear 3 or 4 layers in summer so that I dont show off bits i dont want showing. Its bloody hot!

    "Put some effort into it and do it properly... please, brands..."
    "Contact someone who's in the field. Contact peole who dress by these modest guidelines and actually ask for help."
    👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
    That makes perfect BUSINESS sense.

    Amy Connell 4 years ago +273

    As a non Muslim who dresses modestly, its so annoying when I see a 'modest' collection and it's Arab and Pakistani/India style clothing. I just want a dress that covers my chest, shoulders and knees, I don't want to wear a kaftan 😂

      Zara Royce 3 years ago +2

      Amy Connell yeah exactly, I think that this causes a lot of issues especially identity related issues for western Muslim women, you will find a lot of ladies and they literally start wearing ethnic clothing and all of this which is fine sometimes for a statement look but it goes way further than that, it also leads to a lot of confusion because then people assume that you are from that particular culture like if you’re wearing a particular thing I’ll get people coming up and asking me, oh are you Pakistani? Which all of that is totally fine but I just think that over all it perpetuates issues overtime if you’re having to dress like that on a daily basis

      Rabia Khan if Dina did release more items, they wouldnt necessarily cost less than £20, simply because labour isn’t cheap. Primark, H&M and these “affordable” retailers only sell such cheap clothes because they produce and buy them in bulk, using super cheap Labour, thus making more profits despite selling most items of clothing for £10-£30. nevertheless Dinas clothing line would BE AMAZING 👌

    I’m Catholic and wear a headscarf and (mostly) dress modestly. I hate how these brands try to say they are being inclusive BUT THE CLOTHES ARE JUST AS BAD AS THE REGULAR LINES! Don’t call it a modest line if your going to show just as much as “regular” clothing🙄🙄🙄

    I love everything you said!!! And I’m so glad you were honest. I agree so much. I’m a Christian and I’m a modest dresser, I dont think it should even be ‘religion’ specific. Because it’s not only Muslims that are modest dressers. So it’s still not inclusive either way. It’s literally so half assed either way.

    I am not a modest fashion dresser by any means, but the see throughness of things drives me insane! If you're selling a casual top, I don't want to have to spend hours trying to find a bra that won't show or have to remember to wear the right color of underwear that won't show, or wear a tank top underneath! The point of having clothes is to cover your body. Having to wear another clothing underneath your clothing defeats the main purpose of clothing!
    I get having to do some underwear finangling with fancy dresses and special occasion stuff but a t-shirt or spring dress shouldn't require so much frickin work.
    They just wan't to make the clothing out of the cheapest materials possible. Ugh.

      My husband is always teasing me about my 'shirts on shirts on shirts' but I have to do it for modesty! Everything made for women is super thin, shifts around the body, and shows too much cleavage (I'm big busted). I feel naked if I don't have a wide strapped tank top underneath almost everything I wear.

  • Orion
    Orion 4 years ago +136

    If any brands out there is reading this comment; it’s very simple. We Muslim women want as many options and we get excited about colours as much as other women. What we want is for clothing items not to be see through, sleeveless or with random holes in the thighs or cleavage area. We don’t have an aversion to bright colours and no, we don’t want shapeless potato sacks. We also need blouses that are regular sized and not touching our knees for trousers or skirts. It doesn’t always have to cover our hips. We will take care of that on our own. Thank you very much. Here is an idea; hire modern Muslim women to design these cloths rather than selling us clothing that people in villages of random Muslim countries wear. As Dina says, we can get that stuff for a lot cheaper from those countries but we don’t live there so we need the modern touch of something that is worth our money.

      Pakistani clothes are amazing from casual to classy formals.The fabric quality is excellent too as the weather in Pakistan,summers are hot ,but still women dress smartly and modestly...No holes etc,like I said all kind
      of fabrics is available in Pakistan....for all kind of weather.

      Mia's Virtual Vanity 4 years ago +18

      eff it, i'm not even religious and even I want clothes to not " be see through, sleeveless or with random holes in the thighs or cleavage area.". like i'd choose a random cute top from the rack, get it on, and discover my bra slightly shows through and i get mad because these companies can't be arsed to make tops that aren't from thin rag material.

  • May-mona
    May-mona 4 years ago +82

    I agree with you on the most part but I do have to say that I'm not entirely hating on H&M for this. I'm glad that modesty is being brought to the high street because I don't have access to many 'cultural/religious' stores (I don't know how else to put that) and buying modest pieces online can be expensive and they ship from far away. So although I'm not a huge fan of the H&M collection, I'm hopeful for their future modest collections and the fact that this will drive other high street stores to do the same.

  • Haleemax riaz
    Haleemax riaz 4 years ago +1

    Exactly!! This is literally what i try to say!! If i really wanted the “modest” clothes they sre marketing i could get them from my home country but the whole point is western “modern” clothes because we want to dress like normal 😂😂 finally somebody acctually understands the struggle

  • crazy frog
    crazy frog 4 years ago

    This is a great video. Really interesting to hear your personal perspective. I’m not a solely modest dresser but as I get older I want to dress in a way that makes me feel comfortable. I’m often frustrated by excessive cropping of tops, short skirts etc. I didn’t appreciate how difficult it must be when you’re following a specific standard of dress but this video is spot on. Should be easier than this to create fashion for a huge segment of the market, and do it in a cool and modern way that doesn’t make passing reference to culture/ethnicity that isn’t required/desired. And shouldn’t be more expensive! 🤦‍♀️ x

  • Beyoutiful Honey Hussna

  • Adele Tait
    Adele Tait 4 years ago +3

    I think you are totally on point with everything you have said. It is absolutely ridiculous how these stores basically patronise us with these "modest" collections just before Eid and try to rip us off for it. Most pieces are just awful. Even House of Fraser brought out abayas and charged the earth for them. I am a white British revert and on a daily basis I do wear abayas. But for Eid I like to switch it up a bit. You have sites like Inayah who do a modest take but again £70 for a shirt dress isn't the answer. I just look for a nice decent maxi dress n accessorise it with a cardi/blazer or wrap to make it modest if it can't be altered. It's just best we work with what's out there and do it our way til someone gets it right.

      Extpensive clothes are actually more ethical because it's less likely that the company uses child labor.
      Walmart, Forever 21, Gap, *H&M,* etc, all use child labor 😞

    This is a great review! I can't believe they didn't consult any modest wearing vloggers/bloggers. It's also a shame they aren't very creative with it. Just because I want to dress modestly doesn't mean I want average clothing. It's a good step, but it would have been better if they at least asked some of the people in the industry like you mentioned!

  • May H
    May H 4 years ago +141

    Have to agree with Dina. It's true when clothing line attempt to be modest they just give us the traditional muslim dress. What I would want when looking for modest clothes is long sleeve tops not tight or cropped cause everything is cropped these days with either a cute logo or simple design. It's espescially really hard to shop during the summer whereas the winter you can literally wear an oversized sweater and it's fine. However during summer you want something light yet covering and nice and affordable. I guess H and M really missed the mark😒

    Hey Dina, enjoy watching your stuff x
    I worked in the buying side of large mail order company . H&M Eid collection was prob a marketing idea to get people looking through all the range , making it tricky to find stuff just makes the browser look at stuff and buy stuff they usually wouldn't , it worked on you cuz u like 3 things and your not even sure if they were part of range. I think that was the plan and plus no major extra cost to the whole concept 🤗. Do your own line Dina and don't rip us all off with the prices ❤️❤️

    Nothing makes me more angry than see through clothing, lining that ends half way and lining that does not do the job! And this is coming from a non-hijabi so God knows how frustrating would it be for those who are

    Petition for Dina to create her own modest line. I realised me and her have same tastes as to modesty. All those other hijabi youtubers putting on facade as to these clothing lines and shops are "modest". Please dina release a clothing line!!!

      Moe XD she did release a line few years ago. It was absolutely beautiful and I really wanted to buy it but it was out of budget range. One time I commented how expensive they were on her video and she replied saying something along the lines of how she doesn’t have the resources to mass produce and achieve low prices like brands such as H&M. So ideally these high end brands should do would Dina is saying and just alter the already existing clothes to make them modest. I hope they listen!!!!

    I really condone her for being inclusive to all modesty. I was raised traditional Eastern Orthodox and my mom had me wearing a head scarf during Lenten periods and dress modest (arms, legs wrists and ankles covered, no see through cross on) on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays and Sundays. No makeup and hair pinned up. And its nice to listen to someone who understand bc I have found more understanding from Muslim and Jewish woman because the Orthodox Community is very progressive. And I’m from a Spartan and Assyrian family and where very traditional. Great video Dina!

      Unicornio Histérico OMGs what a horrific thing to say. And who are you to say what's normal. To hijabis that normal. Like the people of the west think it's normal to wear nothing. How dare you. I pray you wise up and stop being so hateful.

      Kate A the point is to not support H&M and other fast fashion brands and to buy clothes from the actual people who make them. I think you missed the point of the video.

    What I hate is that modest does not mean " look middle eastern" I'm Scandinavian/English but my religion( Mormon) requires modesty. I think that many of the clothes from the middle east are sooooo pretty and the workmanship is mind blowing . But I don't like to dress in those styles, they don't suit me . But I wish that the 2 didn't always go hand in hand. One can wear western clothes that cover up the bits you need covered. But it can be very hard to do .

      Yes! I am Christian, but I choose to dress modestly because of religious reasons and because it’s what I feel comfortable in. I don’t feel comfortable wearing shorts that are so short that my buttcheek pops out when I bend over. I don’t feel comfortable wearing strapless or spaghetti strap shirts or dresses. And everyone just tells me to love yourself and don’t care about what other people think. But that’s not the answer! I already love myself and don’t care what other people think! I just want trendy fashion pieces that are going to cover what I want covered.

      Kori Emerson I agree I’m Roman Catholic and I choose to dress modest, but I still want to ‘fit in’ with my peers.
      Like the jumper she’s wearing in this video is so cute and trendy but still modest.

    There are Jewish and Christian modest dresses too. I don’t know why brands don’t get it. I’m so tired of see through and tight clothing. I personally like to dress a bit more modestly and I end up shopping in thrift stores most of the time. Clothes that are at least 10 years old are made so much better

    As an American revert, I would feel so weird about wearing cultural pieces that are not part of my culture. Not because I don't like them but because it would feel like appropriation. I just want modest options in what I would normally wear. Shirts that aren't see through, etc. Thanks for the vid, Dina! The H&M site for the US is the same, no mention of the collection.

    • Shah N.
      Shah N. 4 years ago

      please feel free to wear traditional style clothes! I know that you’re intent isn’t to make fun of us, but because you think our clothes are pretty, so I support that 100%! (truthfully I wish H&M had this sort of stuff sooner, because it can be difficult to track down and get actual pieces I want directly from my parents’ country, so this makes everything so much easier!)

    I'm happy to hear that its not just me that found this 'collection' lacking. I'm in the states and when I went online to look at this collection I didn't see anything that stood out and that I found worth buying. Secondly it took forever to find the 'modest fashion' collection on the HM site! Kinda frustrating.. Thanks Dina, for biting the bullet and buying some items and reviewing them to let us know how they wear and feel!

    My job requires me to dress modestly to be culturally sensitive towards the communities I travel to and interact with and I find it so difficult to find clothing that suits my needs! I totally understand your complaints. Adding to your points about items such as the caftan being already available to you (at a better quality!) It also means that there are so many people like myself looking for modest items who can't purchase those pieces because then we would be appropriating culture! If they could change what they already sell so that skirts are longer, items aren't unnecessarily see through and tight and provide better arm coverage that would be great! I would love to dress modestly in everyday life but currently I reserve most of my modest items only for work because they make me feel frumpy!
