Made in the UK and built to last from soft cotton and Lycra (92% cotton, 8% Lycra). Unisex.
Our own brand single layered haramaki will keep its shape and keep you warm. Core-warmth will radiate throughout your body - keeping even your hands and feet warmer.
Haramaki translates as belly (hara) wrap (Maki) - a band of material wrapped around your middle. You can tuck them in and wear them invisibly or have a layer of colour over or under your clothes or just peeking out when you sit down or bend over.
Also called waist warmers and belly bands, these body warmers have been worn for centuries in Japan. The samurai wore them beneath their armour and they are experiencing a fashion revival in Japan. They are great for doing yoga, outdoor sports, cyclists, pregnant and breast feeding mums, those who feel the cold and anyone who wants to cover up the gap between top and waistband especially when sitting or bending over. Back fat, muffin tops and 'whale-tail' banished from sight!

Definitely keeps you warm!
I bought the waist warmer on advise from my acupuncturist, to keep my kidneys warm. They are very warm, I would normally where a size 12. So I purchased the 10-12 and it fits snuggly, which I think it's supposed to? But for ease of getting the garment on/off, I might choose the next size up, next time. The customer service has been amazing, I thought I had not received my order and Catherine has been brilliant and sent me a replacement. Upon arrival of my replacement, it was realised, by someone who wishes to remain nameless, that the original order had been picked up by them and put to one side, without telling me. Catherine has been great with the mistake, and I will be sending the extra order back ASAP.

I needed to change sizes as it was initially too small but that was easily done. Doesn't show through my clothes which is good.

Wonderfully soft and cosy. Great choice of colours. I am 30" - 31" waist.
I needed to exchange for the size large which is a little too big round the waist but comfortable over my vest. I recommend these, it's considered healthy to keep your kidneys warm. I find my extremities are warmer too. I love wearing them to bed as the nights draw in.
