The Middle-east don't only have cultural traditions where women are covering themselves. I've seen pictures of both women and men covering themselves. Why do they covering themselves in a warm country? It would make more sense North-Europeans would do that since there it's freezing cold, but in the Middle-east and some other countries it's very hot.

Although some of these look like it's a lot of clothing, the material is quite thin, mostly made of cotton in hotter weathers, and thicker material in colder climates.
Having worn abaya and hijab before in Malaysia I can tell you that it isn't too awful if the climate is dry, if it's humid however then it's terrible but most middle eastern countries aren't humid.3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
