Attire: Tzni'ut Guidelines for Women

To dress tzenu'a, women should:
  • Cover torso to elbows and to knees;
  • Cover collarbones (and hair, if married).
Also, the garments must not cling tightly to the woman's body.
Note If there are no men nearby (visible), women do not need to wear tzanu'a attire, including when swimming.
Note It is an act of piety to always dress tzenu'a, and is preferable always to dress tzenu'a when feasible.
