I have recently fallen in love with maru obi. I really did not think that they would be an option for me but now that I have done some research I think they would work really well with my figure. I also love the simple patterns that are available.
Nagoya obi look weird on me, and I am thinking it is because I have such a long waist and well...everything. The pre sewn section just looks funky.
Speaking of maru...I have never wanted to spend $180 on something that has a high chance of not being fixable, but this made me fall out-mah-chair. Blast you ichiroya!
