Kitsuke (着付)

A type of kosode, or short-sleeved kimono, with smaller cuffs. When the costume is put on, a padded corsage is first placed over the undergarments, and the line of the taut costume is adjusted to fit close to the body. A short-sleeved costume such as a noshime, Nuihaku, Atsuita or Surihaku is then placed over the corsage, which is also known as Kitsuke. In general, Kitsuke is used in reference to putting on Japanese-style clothing, and putting on costumes in Noh and kyōgen is known as monokise, or “putting on things” and not Kitsuke.
