Try it out the Yukata and Feel the Comfort of Nudity without Being Nude.

The Yukata is a traditional Japanese garment, which despite being lesser known than the kimono has aroused the curiosity of people around the world. Admired for their style, beauty, and traditional aesthetic, the Yukata is mostly worn during summer festivals and at home for personal comfort.

The Yukata come in the shape of full-length robes with long sleeves, which have to be secured using a decorative belt aka Obi. Due to the attire’s casual nature, many people in Japan treated as their proverbial second skin. Yes, that’s right!

History of the Yukata

This traditional Japanese dress dates back to housing years in the past when the nobility used them as bathrobes. Eventually, they came to be worn as casual wear due to the convenience and pricing that is lesser than a Kimono.

The Yukata became highly popular during the Edo period when there was a strict law place that prevented people from indulging in luxuries.

Since the Yukata is usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, it makes for an incredible comfort wear. Keep on reading to know more about this Japanese attire and why should you consider wearing them.

Benefits of wearing the Yukata

Unlike the kimono which is quite tough to put on, all you need to do to wear a Yukata is wrap it around your body and tighten using the Obi. The term literally translates to “bathing robe” in English and was once worn by people after bathing in a communal bath.

The attire is not only covered the body but also soaked up the remaining water thanks to the fabric. You can follow the footsteps of the Japanese folk during the older days and use it as a bathrobe as well. We promise that you are going to love its convenience.

Aside from moisture absorption, the cotton fabric also makes the Yukata more breathable. This is the reason wearing the attire has become rather a custom during the summer season in Japan. Think of it as a better alternative to being nude.

Since most of us would rather be nude at home but cannot be so for obvious reasons, the Yukata can work as a sort of a “second skin” that covers the body while giving us all the relaxation benefits that come with nudity.

Why don’t you try it out?

Use it as a bathrobe, as a comfort wear at home, or wear it to festive summer events in Japan. No matter what you do, the Yukata is bound to give you a sense of comfort that you might have never felt before.
