In Japanese, the word kimono means literally “what one wears" and it's a traditional Japanese garment. A kimono is a long, loose-fitting dress or coat with wide sleeves that you tie shut with a belt. The belt is called an "obi" and the bow at the back is called a "munsuko" (which means, literally, “birth"). In Japan, kimonos are worn at official ceremonies (inc. weddings) and there are strict rules for wearing a kimono. A traditional kimono is made of silk and new ones can easily cost some €60,000.
Naturally, our nightwear is inspired by the Japanese kimono, but is slightly less expensive, a bit more practical and perhaps even more erotic: it is certainly somewhat shorter! Western-style kimonos are often short and you wear them just over the buttocks. They are not made of silk, but of velours, lace, satin or a combination of fabrics instead. And “our" kimonos are intended to be worn only IN the home, they're not really for OUTSIDE. For this reason, they are in the category of nightwear.
The kimonos in our online lingerie store are made of velours, stretch jersey, lace, satin and natural cotton, among other materials. You can wear a kimono simply because it's comfortable around the house in the morning or evening. But a kimono can also be a sexy lingerie item that you wear for those special moments and erotic nights! So choose a material that fits with the occasion.
There is a kimono bathrobe for both men and women. This kimono comes in both a short and a long model and is often made of a comfortable fabric such as cotton with a Chinese or Japanese print. Kimono bathrobes are more comfortable than they are sexy or erotic.
Kimono dressing gown
A kimono dressing gown is more the kimono that we offer in our online web shop: nightwear with a nod toward the traditional Japanese kimono, but intended primarily as “in-home" fashion for special occasions.
A sexy kimono is timeless, chic and a favourite lingerie item that makes you feel deliciously at ease. A kimono is extremely feminine, but if you go for the open-structured lace, then your kimono is immediately naughty and erotic. Be tempted....
