Question Travel to Malaysia

A question for those who are much more seasoned travellers than I am, to help my daughter out.

She's travelling out to Malaysia next month with her father for a visit, which includes a wedding (her dad's mum is Malaysian so there's a lot of family out there). It's difficult for her to take advice from her nan and her aunt, as they don't have the same appearance. My daughter, naturally, takes after me in colouring.

The family are all Catholic so I guess it's never really occurred to me, and whenever I've seen photos of them or my former in laws out there on holidays, the women all wear vest tops and shorts. However, my former sister in law has told my daughter that she will have to cover up because it's a Muslim country.

Seems it's double standards, and if you're Western in appearance you have to cover your shoulders, legs, cleavage etc in all situations, but if you're Asian in appearance, it's not the case.

Just asking if anyone can shed any light upon this as she'll have to go and buy a whole load of new clothes if it is the case!
