One reason Lulua wears her abaya is to please her husband.
A contemporary abaya is usually a robe, cut from light, flowing fabrics such as crepe, georgette, and chiffon.
For some the simple cloth adds to their feminine attraction, others wear it to escape the male gaze, but for all the abaya proves the way a woman dresses is only one aspect of her identity.

While many young girls in the west are engaged in feud between their faith and comical suburban laws, confused in differentiating the ‘veil’ as sign of purity or epic of oppression, females in the east are engrossed in taking their religious beliefs in to a new lime light, the abaya fashion.
Moroccan’s prefer very loose, embroidered and colored abayas, loose on arms and waist line, Oman and UAE females hold a lot of similarity in choosing fl as the main color worn from the front side and buttoning on shoulder side.
The design on the abaya is so important that its impossible to keep a tab on changing trends.

 The Nature of the Abaya
We have to be aware that the abaya and the way it is worn have behavioral consequences that deserve social, psychological and cultural studies.
The abaya indeed covers a typically weak and frightened character (a woman of course), who views herself as a sexual entity confined in a well-defined space she can never escape from.
As for other abayas, they occupy the wearer with keeping them wrapped around the shoulders, the head and the face so that the woman can’t move without worrying that one or more of the bits will fall and she will stand revealed.

The abaya indeed covers a typically weak and frightened character (a woman of course), who views herself as a sexual entity confined in a well-defined space she can never escape from.
The old abaya was a simple, on-the-shoulder garment, open on both sides; nowadays women wear abayas which rest on their heads, making them look like large walking crows.
As for other abayas, they occupy the wearer with keeping them wrapped around the shoulders, the head and the face so that the woman can’t move without worrying that one or more of the bits will fall and she will stand revealed.

One of the restraints is that she must walk as if her feet were hobbled and she was unable to move easily and normally.

 Maybe the Abysmally Absurd Abaya Issue is over??
In addition to having to wear the abaya when off base, the policy also requires servicewomen to ride in the back of military vehicles and forbids them from going off base unaccompanied by males.
McSally, a decorated pilot with the U.S. Air Force, filed suit in December 2001 to overturn the abaya policy, as well as other regulations requiring that a woman be accompanied by a man when off base and sit in the rear seat of any vehicle containing more than two passengers.
Oh, and by the way, abaya or not, they're still in the "back of the bus" (rear seat of any vehicle) and not allowed to drive or go out without a man along.
