This blog tell you how to determine your kimono measurements especially Mitake(body length).
There are two types of Mitake(body length): kata-Mitake and se-Mitake.
Kata-Mitake : “kata” means shoulder.
Se-Mitake : “se” means back seam.
“Mitake” means body length.
The Mitake shown here is se-Mitake.
The difference between the two types of height can be seen in the reference material.
Body height = se-Mitake (Body length)
To change the Mitake length

se-Mitake (Body length)＝ Body height ＋α
When wearing a kimono, the koshihimo(waistband) is positioned low.
se-Mitake (Body length)＝ Body height －α
