How to wear

In the dance, you may look chic if you wear moderately loose. It may become difficult to move if you fasten the obi too tight, andtighten around the neck and shoulder. It could be difficult topart the skirt of yukata if you are not accustomed to wearing it,but your steps will become comfortable if you set the position of obi and skirt so that the feet widens toward the end instead of a cylindrical shape. It may be a good idea to choose a yukata using a slippery material in the skirt lining.
