Hi, so I've been seeing these around the internet and i couldn't find any answers by internet means so now i ask my fellow humans: I've been seeing some pictures of Yukata having a smaller obi belt size. I wonder if it's a real thing or if it's just a generic Chinese knock off thing. If it's real, does it hold any significance?

Chiebukuro (Yahoo's crowdsourced Q&A service) tells me that Yukata obis should be around 17 cm, and the one in your picture is 10 cm. It's a little slim - but I wouldn't worry about purity when buying a cheap yukata from the internet. I mean, nowadays when you can buy girls' yukata with clip-on obis (like we used to have clip-on neckties when I was a kid) nobody would even notice if a yukata obi was slightly narrower than normal.
