Kimono And Pregnancy

Updated: Oct 25, 2020

Over the years many people have asked us a fairly simple and yet fascinating question, "Can pregnant women wear kimono?". The answer is yes women can wear a kimono while pregnant, however there are not very many photos that demonstrate how women look. There are several options for a pregnant woman, the most common of them we have seen involves the use of women's hakama which are worn under the breast line. Men's hakama are worn about the hips.

Kimono were very much a party of everyday attire throughout Japanese history. It is in fact only within recent history that the kimono has no longer become the primary everyday attire of most people. Throughout history the kimono has dominated Japanese cultural costume and traditional fashion in some form or another. while the modern kimono is unique and distinct in form, it does enjoy an evolution that spans centuries of history. As a result, one can expect kimono to be worn through all stages of life, including motherhood. Recently a kitsuke friend of ours, Mamezuru Kimono, posted some kitsuke photos of herself on facebook. She's obviously pregnant, and still enjoying kimono kitsuke. We are sharing these photos with her permission. We think she looks utterly elegant and wish her and her child all the best.
