A recent post suggested that they do still have abayas for ladies to borrow, but that they wouldn't take a passport as ID, so the poster left their drivers licence instead. Have a look back through recent posts.

You don't actually have to wear a full abaya if you are already modestly dressed, i.e. with your hair, arms, legs, etc covered, and no tight clothing.

Yeah sharp that was my post :-)

Take your DL or ID card to leave as a deposit. There are signs directing you to where u can rent one.

You can dress modestly however I did see the security enforcing people to wear their scarfs etc to cover their heads.
