I am from Canada, I don't understand Japanese. I am going to ask my aunt to buy it for me, she is travelling. I know uniqlo sell yukata during summer. (she don't understand Japanese either)

http://store.uniqlo.com/l4/getitem.asp?h...

But I need to know how do they categorize the size.
身丈, 裄,袖丈 I mean the variety of selections of those measurements.But I cannot find it in the website. Can you help me out?

身丈 = my height from head to toe?
裄 = my arm length?
袖丈 = that's the length of the sleeves vertically

How do uniqlo categorize their yukata? I guess it's not by small medium and large?

? 身丈 : ? 裄: ? 袖丈

http://e-wazakka.com/html/yukata_size.ph... (that's how I know)
I am tiny, I wear smallest size of asian clothes.
(p.s. I can only shop in kids section in Canada T_T )

Hi,

Sorry I can't help you a ton because my computer can't read Japanese symbols. I only see a bunch of squares and blocks....BUT i lived in Japan last year and Uniqlo was one of my fav. stores!

From what I remember clothes there are sold as either xs-l, or items such as pants are done in centimetres. For example, I have jeans from uniqlo that are a size 70. I wear a size medium in Canadian clothing. My friend who was a size small in US clothing wore about a size 64 in Uniqlo clothes (pant sizes went up in increments of 3, so size 64, 67, 70 etc.)

Your best bet is to assume that Japanese sizes at uniqlo are a size smaller than Canadian ones. If you wear a size XS in Canada than you are probably a small in Japan. If you are shopping in "regular" Japanese stores than it's better to go up a size or even TWO.

That's great that you are getting a yukata there. From what I remember, Uniqlo had really cute ones and they were by far the most affordable that you'd find. If your aunt doesn't want to lug them around while she is travelling, there is a uniqlo located at Tokyo's Narita Airport. When I was flying home in the summer they had lots of yukata there. Although on second thought it'd be pretty disappointing if for some reason the airport uniqlo had run out!

Hope that helps, Heather

YES this means your height
裄 = my arm length?
袖丈 = that's the length of the sleeves vertically
This means your sleeve length - from the back of your neck (center) to your wrist

How do uniqlo categorize their yukata? I guess it's not by small medium and large?
The sizes for the yukata sold by Uniqlo are FREE (height 153-166 sm, sleeve length 67 cm, chest width - arm pit to arm pit = 48 cm, one side only not around the chest)

? 身丈 : ? 裄: ? 袖丈

The current URL for this year's (2007) yukata design line is - http://store.uniqlo.com/check/yukata.asp?ref=L1_sub_05_txt. This link in the pink box below the pics of the 3 ladies that says 浴衣の着付け方を見る will link to a PDF file that shows how to wear and adjust the yukata to your size.

If you click & select any of the yukatas shown - it will take you to a new view that will show that size (サイズ)is marked as FREE (in red color) and below that you will see サイズを見る boxed in dark blue color - click on it & it will open to an illustration on the sizing.

I think you will fit in the Free size sold by Uniqlo with no problem at all. I hope this helps.

Yes they do have geta for women... The sizes are measured in centimeters. (Approximate sizes are: Jap. size 22 = US kiddie size 4; Jap. size 23 = US women's Size 5)

I couldn't find the "link" in the store site. Do you know the link?
I've been trying to 'guess and click' around the site, not getting women geta.

I draw my feet out, wrote the length and width of my feet and give it to my aunt.

Sorry - it appears that Uniqlo is not selling geta for women (at least not on their website at the moment) - usually they are more expensive than those for men. But maybe your aunt can get them elsewhere - like in Asakusa or in any of the department stores.

=.= I'll see, I am not sure if she want to bother going elsewhere.

If she didn't get them. I will just wear flip-flop.
And I am not too sure if I am able to 'walk' on a geta. LOL

Or I guess wearing a nice dress shoe may work.
Make a metropolitan 20's retro style.

Just once again, thank you everyone for all those help.  Grin

flip flops instead of geta is all the rage now.  My friends were all impressed that I actually tried the geta (and felt horrible after 2 hours of walking on them haha) 

Yukata are all free sized because you fold the middle in (if you're shorter)

Check out this link... helped me a lot when I wore my first Yukata.
