Over the years many people have asked us a fairly simple and yet fascinating question, "Can pregnant women wear kimono?". The answer is yes they can, 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. 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.
