kimononagoya:

On this top photo I am a fan of tying the obi in a ribbon that hangs over the front. This gives some movement to the garment. The trouble is, of course, whether it also sticks out at the back at the same level which makes your body look like a sailing ship. This is one of the big troubles with balancing the side silhouette of kimono.

In yukata recently there has been a movement to tie the obi ribbon in front, almost oiran-style, which is rather sexualized. A big fluffy obi in the front is eye-catching indeed, but what to do with the back? The obi in back covers up many of the wrinkles and folds that happen with yukata, especially if your body is anything other than slim and flat. If you have hips or a booty that projects outward, this will create wrinkles in the kimono that the obi covers pretty well. [The kimono is cut on absolutely straight vertical lines. Gathering or pullng it inward or outward makes bulges or wrinkles in the fabric that only create more wrinkles. The ideal kitsuke is absolutely smooth and flat, which means the body underneath needs to somehow become column-shaped, by hook or by crook!] Your only option is to pad out your waist to be the same width as the widest point of your hips, and in the summer this would require wrapping towels around the hottest part of your torso…!!

So, all-in-all, you  should weigh carefully the consequences of different styles along with the quality or style of kitsuke you’re going for. :3

But most importantly, I think the colors of these are incredible!

In the first set, the pastels are wonderfully set off by the shapes of the obiage ribbon and the little brooch in front. This keeps them from just being bleached out into a wall of nothingness. The polka dots also keep your eye moving.

In the second set, the vertical stripes on the obi work beautifully with the polka dots as they are of similar (nearly identical!) width and look very coherent. The large rose design keeps it from being a full geometric print and adds lots of energy— the white lines in the roses also keep you moving throughout the design and never sticking in one place.
