What should I choose for my first bogu set?
Last Updated: 2018-07-18
For a first bogu set, we do not recommend something too fancy and too customized. With time and practice, you will know better how to move and you will understand how your body interacts with your bogu. Our goal here is not to make you spend your full budget but to help you make the right choice for your first bogu.

We recommend a bogu that is protective so has a stitch width of 5mm or wider, uses fit-stitching for comfort and uses Orizashi finishing as this dries quickly and is easy to maintain.
