I love asian girls in yukata. Very sexy. I also like that Chinese "princess dress", I dont know what its called, but thats what it makes me think of. Like the girl wore in Legend of the Condor Heroes. Not too crazy about the hanbok or qipao though.

If for everyday wear - I don't think I can handle dressed up all the time! =)
But I do think traditional clothing is very admirable and has beauty in itself.
The way I view it is... you get a glimpse of history and culture.

Plus, I love Hanfu and Qi Pao (Chinese Traditional)~ I think it's very gorgeous.
I would love to try on a Kimono or Hanbok one day too~~

pretty! but doesn't the obi, is that what it's called?, feel like it's strangling you? or is it just me? and what's the general name for it? there's furisode, hakama, kimono, (aaah! i can't keep track of what is part of the clothing, and what is a separate design from it, forgive me!!!) and is wearing it supposed to be comfortable?


No. An Obi feels like a corset. It's on you very tight, but you know that you're not going to be strangled. It also consists of several layers underneath it (Obi board, pillow to form the bows, various ties. Most Japanese women, unless trained, don't know how to put one on. I was trained to know how to tie basic bows, like drum bow or for a yukata) Depending on the Obi, it covers your entire stomach. It feels very much so like a corset. It's not at all comfortable, but it's not painful. You can easily wear one for several hours.

Kimono is a general term.
Picture time -
-Furisode: what unmarried women wear.

-Tomesode: The most formal Kimono for married women. A Kuro-tomesode/Kurotomesode is a black kimono with designs at the bottom, and 5 crests on the Kimono. An Irotomesode is a colored kimono, but has the designs at the bottom, much like the kurotomesode.


-Houmongi: A semi-formal garment. Worn by both married and unmarried women. It is the most ostentatious garment a married woman can wear, and is often used to replace the role of the furisode for married women.

(Me in the pink Houmongi.)
-Tsukesage - A Tsukesage, while still formal, appears quite similar to the irotomesode, as most of the patterns are limited to the bottom. Tsukesage, however, can also be worn by unmarried women.

-Iromuji - a one-color Kimono, often worn to tea ceremonies

-Komon - relatively laid back kimono, a bit more casual. Has a repeating pattern.(Do not confuse this wit Kamon, which means crest.

-Mofuku - Mourning Kimono. Are ALL BLACK with crests. If there is a shred of color on a black kimono and if the kimono does not have crests, IT IS NOT A MOFUKU.

Yukata - an unlined kimono, used for the summer and sometimes as pajamas. VERY COMFORTABLE.

(Me in the blue Yukata with fireflies and the purple obi, my roommate and best friend in the blue Yukata with the red obi)

A Mofuku has the crests on the back of the collar and the front and back of the shoulders.
