The idea that women can walk down any street in Britain wearing less clothing without attracting much attention is mistaken. Wolf whistles from workmen are just a small sign. Less-dressed women are more obvious in Islamic countries because the Western woman may be the only person in the street dressed in a manner to which the locals are not accustomed and, as such, will be the centre of attention. People would be wise to check out the customs of a country before they visit, so that problems are reduced.
Since proper hejab only requires modest dress when out in public, I can hardly see vitamin D deficiency being more of a problem than wrapping up when it is cold or rainy.
