The warm, flexible haramaki is an ideal year-round accessory for exercise, leisure and relaxation.

Made from closely-ridged layers of 97% cotton and 3% polyurethane, the cosy haramaki keeps core body temperature stable, which in turn helps hands and feet stay warm, however chilly it might be outside.

Wear it during and after exercise whether it be yoga or pilates or more strenuous exercise such as jogging and running outdoors.

How far does it date back in traditional Japanese attire?

The first haramakis were used as belly protectors by Samurai foot soldiers. The garment was first used in the 12th century, but came to prominence during the Sengoku period of the 16th century. During these times, it consisted of a silk band with chain mail or interlinked pieces of metal.

What benefits can it bring?

Great product and great for ostomates like me who are allergic to man made fibre (all cotton) as they keep you gently held in and cover the bag while holding in place

I suffer with sore hips when they get cold, i normally try and wear as many layers as possible. This has made it so easy to layer up, it is lightweight, i was worried that as it was not cotton or a breathable fabric that it may not be a comfortable warmth, but this worry was unfounded. It is a thin fabric, but really warm and quick to provide the warth. It is discrete even under fitted dresses. I now have two so that i can always have one available. They are wonderfully soft, i have the purple, which is nice and bright as well as the black. They have reduced the pain that i was feeling in my hips, They are small and fold up well, so if i have worn it in the morning and no longer need the band of warmth i can pop it in my handbag. It washes well and has not lost colour (in either shade) or shape through washing or drying.

I used to need to sleep with a hot water bottle on my hips in winter, i have worn this to bed on very cold nights, and not required the water bottle. Which has made a huge difference for me.

I wear between a 16-18, i bought the large, they stretch so much, i may buy the size down for next year. Even being slightly loose i have never found it has ridden down, or up (and i have worn over tights). It has enabled me to wear dresses to work in winter, and have the warmth that i need.

I'm reviewing this one although I actually bought the men's one in large - I looked up the sizing chart and I thought the large women's one would be too small - the men's large fits beautifully (I'm an 18-20). So thought I'd put my review here in case larger women were wondering if this one would fit. They're all the same anyway, just a simple cotton tube.
That aside, it's great! It stays in place really well (I thought it would do that annoying rolling itself up/down thing that spanx etc do, but no, it stays in place nice and smooth very well. Super-comfortable. And it makes you feel really nice and warm. Recommended by my acupuncturist as I have 'cold' kidneys and of course this covers exactly that part of your body where clothes usually gape as you bend over, leaving you cold on your lower back. This makes you feel really cosy without being too hot and goes well under clothes. Very much recommended, like other reviews for these products I wore it for days as I didn't want to do without it while I washed it! I'll probably buy another one so I can wash and wear.... once you start using it you don't want to be without it.

I initially bought one of these for my niece who is away studying and lives in a freezing cold student accommodation, she said she loved it and couldn't stop wearing it. So I purchased one for myself. It is a wonderful product at keeping the cold out as all jeans and casual trousers are now made to sit around the hips so most tops won't tuck in, this is a great fashionable item that bridges that gap but allows you to look like you are wearing a layering fashionable look. I am amazed at how warm this simple item is, it is comfortable and I too wear it every time I put my jeans on. Fabulous!

Being a tall person with a long body this is just what I need to keep me warm. Really works and I am very pleased with it, I can't bear to wash it.

I've been looking for something like this for some time. This fits well and doesn't ride up which is perfect. It has an added bonus of giving a little support to lower back and keeps you warm while stopping that gap appearing between your trousers and shirt! Highly recommended!
