If you are busy preparing for the Raya season, you may already have your hands full sprucing up your home, preparing new bedding, baking, working out and finding the right shoes and bags and costume jewellery. We know time is a precious commodity, and shopping for men and plus-sized ladies may not be easy.
Hence Yahoo Shopping scoured the Internet and found talented designers who cater to men and the plus-sized. Modest wear brands like TAS By Tom Abang Saufi creates the most beautiful kaftans and eye-catching shirts for men and Lubna's Homme's Baju Melayu sets and Kurtas are clothes you can wear for special occasions as well as daily wear. Men should also check out Gene Martino, Amar Amran, and Tusca. Popular designs tend to run out of stock quickly, so shop today!
This year we also bring to your attention fashion brands like Mis Claire, Lubna and Kris Curve, who cater to plus-sized ladies (scroll down for gorgeous threads from the brand). After all, there's more of you to love!
With the sun back for Raya, Yahoo Shopping got three modest wear designers, Safira Syukri (Zalia), Nurita Harith (Nurita Harith) and Alia Alizar (Yadotsa), to share their top tips on styling despite our nation's unforgiving heat, plus their sartorial recommendations. Of course, we have sussed out very time-limited promotions on Zalora you should not miss! Read on for the deets!

Style tip 1: Be selective in fabric choices
Opt for fabrics made of lightweight and breathable materials, such as cotton, chiffon and rayon.
Style tip 2: Colour matters
Darker colours attract heat. Counteract the unforgiving heat with fabrics that are light in colour. Pastels and colours on the lighter end of the spectrum, such as white, beige and lilac, are good options as they absorb less sunlight.
Style tip 3: Keep it loose
Go for looser cuts and styles. Avoid skintight clothing or attires that constrain your movement. As a general rule of thumb, looser clothing is cooler in hot weather as it creates a layer of air between your skin and clothing. However, you don't need to sacrifice style for comfort.
Style tip 4: Style your hair
Get your hair into a low modern bun or even a low ponytail. It’s chic and saves you from sweat and heat.
