What To Wear For Shibari

shibari news

Many people have questioned what to wear for Shibari or if it is necessary not to wear anything. Although there is not a dress code or special clothing for Shibari, there are clothes that are much more comfortable than others, but you can wear whatever clothes you are comfortable with or not wear clothes at all, but all this is up to you.

Rope Bondage is similar to Yoga, you need to be able to move freely and it can get hot and sweaty. Also, you shouldn’t wear anything too big.

In a Shibari scene, there are two different roles: top and bottom. The clothing in Shibari depends on the role you are playing, and the specifications or points to take into account regarding the clothing might differ from one role to another.

The clothes that are good for bottoms are preferably tight clothing that won’t interfere with the rope or with the work of the rigger. You shouldn’t wear any loose fabric, since it can buckle under the rope, which is dangerous. You also need to have in mind that it is more difficult to tie on shiny fabric since it can be slippery, so matte fabric is recommended.

Most riggers prefer comfortable clothing for tying, although some riggers like to tie formal dressed. The recommendation for riggers clothing are joggers, running tops, leggings, sportswear, pyjamas. Riggers usually sweat a lot in a scene, so they should bring an extra pair of clothes for after the scene. We usually recommend avoiding jeans that do not stretch, and anything that can affect your performance in a scene.

Clothing in Shibari depends on o each individual, what matters is to feel comfortable and to make it comfortable for your partner.
