I found kitsuke was good exercise

Next Tokyo kimono kitsuke club will be held on March 15th Monday. English, Chinese and Japanese languages will be available.
Last time, we tied Nagoya, fukuro and hanhaba obi sashes and tried odori dance pause!

Kimono Kitsuke Club 1 What I wear under nagajuban

Finally, I will open kimono kitsuke club on next Monday. 5 people will join. From daily kimono wearer to a beginner. We show how we wear kimono each other and exchange own kimono kitsuke tips. It must be a big fun.
As for their reference, I show what I wear under nagajuban.
1. two pieces of ordinary under wears (western style)
If you have a gorgeous body, tubetop may be better. (this is just a guess because I don't have such a body)

2. Ashibe juban
This is a bit expensive but very good for soaking up sweat and add thickness around a chest. I wear this throughout a year.
suteteko

3.Suteteko long johns
I wear cotton linen one for summer, wool for winter instead of susoyoke.

4. Sodo hip pad
This also add thickness around the weist.

As you may know, because kimono is made from stitching rectangular pieces of cloth together in straight in lines, and there are no darts and  no tucks, it is better to make your body as flat as possible before you put kimono. In Japanese it is hosei revision. but how can I say in English? How about this? Make your coca-cola body to a stock pan!
