Sizing your Kimono or Yukata

Japanya sells a range of Japanese cotton kimono or yukata which are popularly used as dressing gowns.  Choosing the size of your kimono or yukata would normally be based on your height.  We generally recommend you buy a gown about 10"- 12" shorter than your height so that it reaches down to your ankle. If you find the kimono is too long you can adjust the length either by hemming or by folding the gown at the waist and hiding the folded material with a wide belt or obi, though this method is traditionally used by women only.  

Width-wise our gowns are generally “one-width” only.  However, we do stock a limited range in wide-fitting sizes for both men and women.
