Yukatas and kimonos
- The half-span (demi-envergure) is the distance between the middle back and the tip of the sleeves when the kimono is spread.
- The height of the sleeves (or width of the sleeves) (hauteur des manches) and the length of the part that hangs under the arm from the shoulder, not to be confused with the length of the sleeves.
- The total height (hauteur totale) is the length from the shoulder to the bottom of the kimono.
The yukata for women are in unique size (in Japan) for women of 1m55 to 1m65.
However, the total height of the yukata is 163cm (from the neck to the bottom) can be worn by sizes ranging far beyond 1m70. The yukata and kimono worn by women are bent at the waist to adjust the length.
Advice if you want to make it at your size: instead of the traditional Obi you can alter the yukata to make it at your size and use the cloth scrap to make a belt that will be so in the same pattern as the yukata.
For men there are three sizes: M, L, LL.
Yukata for men are not expected to decrease the size, unlike the yukata for women.
Size M is designed for people of 1m60 to 1m66. The length of the yukata is 142cm (neck to bottom). The width (middle of the neck to the wrist) is 69cm.
Size L is designed for people of 1m67 to 1m75. The length of the yukata is 146cm (neck to bottom). The width (middle of the neck to the wrist) is 70cm.
LL size is intended for people of 1m75 to 1m80. The length of the yukata is 148cm. The lageur is 71cm.
