Q: What type of pants is best for a women to wear under their abaya? It is usually said women should not wear a pants with a zip? Imitates a man’s dressing. And it should be a pants with elastic, however the formal pants with a zip etc. does not reveal ones shape of the legs, if one wears a pants with an elastic band and it’s strech, it’s more likely ones shape will be revealed? Due to fabric sticking to each other. Is it permissible to wear a huge abaya with a formal pants with a narrow bottom under? Is that modest?
A: Loose and unattractive pants that will go below the ankle.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
