Gorgeous Wear – Tips on choosing a rental kimono for large sizes

We will introduce key points for choosing a kimono that will help larger-sized people look beautiful, and will explain in detail how to choose the pattern, color, and size that best suits your body type. We will provide advice on how to choose a kimono that blends with the Kyoto landscape and enjoy it comfortably, gorgeously and stylishly.

How to choose size

Please take accurate measurements before renting. If the kimono is not the right size for your body, it will be uncomfortable to wear. Especially if you are a plus size person, it is important to choose the size that suits your body type. We recommend choosing a kimono that is loose enough to not hug your body. Pay particular attention to ease of movement, and choose a size that will allow you to feel comfortable without putting stress on your body.

How to choose patterns and colors

If you are a large person, choosing a kimono with a petite pattern or light color will give you a neat impression. Avoid overly bright patterns and dark colors as they may emphasize your figure. By choosing a kimono with a pattern or pattern that emphasizes vertical lines, you can expect to improve your style. Choose vertically flowing patterns, such as stripes or stripes, to create a slimmer look.

Relaxed comfort – How to choose a kimono rental plan suitable for large-sized people

We will teach you how to choose a rental plan to enjoy walking around Kyoto in a relaxed and comfortable manner. We also explain the key points of a plan that emphasizes comfort, such as soft and easy-to-move materials and adjustable obi options. You will be able to enjoy a comfortable kimono rental experience even in large sizes.

Choose a kimono made of soft material

For those with larger sizes, we recommend kimonos made of soft and stretchy material. Kimonos made of cotton or polyester blends are comfortable to wear and fit easily to the body. Lightweight materials are also suitable for those who value ease of movement.

Choose an adjustable band option

By choosing an option that allows you to adjust the size and length of the obi, you can adjust it to be more comfortable when wearing it. Proper obi adjustment is an important factor in improving the comfort of a kimono, especially for larger-sized people. Some rental shops may offer plans that allow you to adjust the size of the obi, so we recommend checking in advance.

Choose a kimono that is loosely sized

It is also important to choose a kimono that is loosely sized and does not fit too closely to your body. A kimono that can be worn without stress will make you feel comfortable even on long walks. It is important to refer to the size chart and choose a size that fits you comfortably.

Considering the breathability of the kimono

The breathability of a kimono is also an important factor that affects its comfort. Especially in the summer and on hot days, it is important to choose kimonos that are made of breathable materials and keep you cool. By choosing a kimono made of highly moisture-absorbing material and a design with good breathability, you will be able to wear it comfortably.
