First Impressions: Sufyaa Sheylas

First Impressions and Review by Farha B.

Sufyaa Sheyla in Black Plum (S$36)

I was very eggcited when Sufyaa restocked these sheylas and couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. I received the item within two days after I placed my order. The item was presented in a purple packaging with the company name on it (very professional!)

An ingenious idea really – a chiffon sheyla attached to a full head/neck inner. The headpiece/inner is made of cotton/lycra material and covers the chest around midway. It comes in several colours with coordinating sheylas.

The headpiece/inner also comes with an awning – a plastic piece in between the inner to make it firm so that it shapes the face. I feel that headpieces with awning are suited for certain face shapes and truth be told I’m not a fan of that particular awning so I came up with a solution (more so that it would not be a wasted purchase).

When inserting the headpiece, push it back all the way so that the awning is now at the back of  your head. Underneath that, wear your favourite inner (the normal flat one) in a coordinating shade with the sheyla. Voila!

I would however, have preferred if they have a different type of headpiece/inner available so that women of all face shapes can rock his look.

Product: 4/5
Quality: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5
Would I buy again: Maybe, although it’s on the higher price range
