& # 39; My solutionwear brand is built with inclusiveness and diversity at its core and I am incredibly proud of what is to come & she said. & # 39; That includes bra & # 39; s, briefs, shorts and bodysuits, including underwear. & # 39;

But most people object to the fact that the reality star concentrates on undergarments, where real kimonos are an outer garment.

The kimono, dating from the 15th century in Japan, literally means & # 39; thing to wear on the shoulders & # 39 ;, is a T-shaped wrapped garment with loose long sleeves tied with a sash.

Considered the national dress of Japan, it is now usually worn on special occasions such as weddings and age ceremonies, and is usually worn by women.

Those who tend to wear a kimono every day are older men and women, geisha & sumo wrestlers, who are required to wear traditional Japanese clothing when they appear in public.
