What is izaar?

Q: There is a Hadith in behisti jeor that Rasulullah (sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) said, "May Allah have mercy over the women who wear izaar". What is izaar? How can I put this hadeeth into practice (by wearing what cloth)?

A: The lower garment. In other words, the body is correctly concealed.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
