Size and uses
How do I know my size?
The haramaki is a garment that can be worn over or under your clothes and depending on the time of day and your activity, you may want it to feel looser or tighter.
Our recommendation is to go by your usual clothing size. If you usually wear two sizes of clothing, for example, 38 and 40, choose the smaller of the two options, which in our size guide would correspond to size 2 or size S.
Cotton tends to give way with use and, although it will regain firmness when washed, it will quickly give way to adapt to your body again. Remember that it is not a compression garment but a kidney and abdomen warmer. Its purpose is not to tighten but to support.
We offer 3 children's sizes and 5 adult sizes. To know the sizes of the rest of the products you can consult our Size Guide.
How do you put haramaki on?
The haramaki does not have buttons or zippers but it will adapt very well to your silhouette.
It is best to put it on at the feet, being careful not to force the side seams.
- The narrowest part is above the waist, about 5 or 6 cm above the navel.
- The widest part (where the label with the logo is) is down, keeping the heat in the abdominal area, picking up the lower back or lumbar area.
In the case of the extra-long models that are 6cm taller than the regular model, the haramaki will come under the chest and will cover the hip area a little lower.
In the case of women with advanced pregnancy, it will be much more comfortable to place it over the head and slide it until it covers the entire belly.
Remember that you can wear it under your clothes or over it, in plain sight, to give a different touch to your look.
When is extra long haramaki recommended?
The extra long haramaki adds 6 cm more height to the regular model. It is ideal to wear it as underwear in contact with the skin.
We recommend it if:
- You are breastfeeding. When the shirt goes up, it covers you up to below the chest and the cold does not sneak through the back.
- You are tall and you think normal haramaki may fall short.
- To sleep if you are very cold and do not want your lower back to be exposed.
- You like to wear leggings and you prefer that the haramaki cover your buttocks a little below the hips.
Is haramaki only for women?
No, the haramaki is for those who want to take care of themselves and connect with their body. Its healthy benefits affect both of them equally since, with the exception of the heart and lungs, haramaki embraces the main vital organs, activating blood circulation and improving their functioning.
Here we leave you more information about what a haramaki is, its origin and properties.
What materials do you use?
In all our collections we use natural fabrics backed by the GOTS certificate that guarantees not only the organic origin of the material but also decent conditions for its workers.
We also look for certificates of environmental and social commitment on Life is a hug T-shirts and bags.
The haramakis from the Basic, Reversible and Nature collections are made mainly of organic cotton and contain 5% elastane, which is the minimum necessary for it to recover its shape after washing. This is the same fabric that you will find in the reversible mittens and turbans.
The exception is the Tricot collection, which does not contain elastane and its composition is 10% certified cashmere wool and 90% organic cotton.
In the Sustainability section you can find out more about our commitment to reducing textile waste through our "Zero waste" project.

What happens if I made a mistake with the shipping address?
If at the time of placing your order you provide an incorrect or incomplete address, the carrier will return the package to us. In that case, you will have to pay the cost of reshipping once we have confirmed the correct address with you.
Since shipping rates are calculated by the carrier at the time of delivery, we may be able to reroute the package to the new address without it being returned to us. But also in that case Correos charges it again as a new shipment for which you will have to pay for it.
