Tired of those shirts that keep riding up? Looking for an extra layer of warmth without the bulk? You might consider the haramaki:

Haramaki was originally part of samurai attire. In 16th century Japan the haramaki was a belly protector made of lined silk. The protector also contained chain mail or plates of iron. Today, the haramaki has made a fashion comeback. Checkout this review online.

If you don't have time to stop by Japan, where can you find these things in the U.S.? DanielleDIY once had a selection (although she's backed up with orders so don't expect your haramaki for at least a month!) Stretchy, comfy, in pretty might be worth the wait!
