At the Ayame Store, we specialize in offering exceptional quality bodysuits produced solely in Japan.
When people hear about "Bishojo" Kigurumi cosplay, they tend to focus on the "masked" aspect of the performance. For the Ayame Store, the mask is just the "cherry on top". From our perspective, the bodysuits is the definitive feature that forms the essence of Kigurumi cosplay. When compared to the visual impact of a Kigurumi mask, the bodysuits does not instantly stand out. However, it is this uniquely deceptive level of quality that we aim to achieve.
With over 20 years in business and making absolutely no compromises for quality, we hope you take this opportunity to enjoy our masterfully created products of Japanese workmanship.
The Ayame bodysuits are the standard among the standard in Japan
Japan is where kigurumi originated from, and it holds the largest user population in the world. Within Japan, our bodysuits are utilized the most, and we hold the utmost shares in the industry. Of course, the bodysuit industry has competition within Japan, and there are cheaper international suppliers. Additionally, the open Japanese market allows any Japanese personnel to buy a bodysuit.
However, our bodysuits still hold the utmost shares. Why is that?
The bodysuit, which the Japanese population supports the most. You might understand why when you get your hands on one.
Thick fabric that allows additional covering of tattoos
Making body hair invisible when wearing a bodysuit. This is the original purpose of Ayametights.
This is a Japan-specific need. Even if some may be visible, thinner fabrics are enough as long as the body hair didn’t show in pictures. Therefore, these fabrics are transparent to tattoos.
However, the bodysuits at our store has a thickness. So even tattoos, just look at the pictures above.
As increasingly precise fit because we start with the pattern
Up until today, “full order made” meant the adjustment of
- Arms +3cm
- Waist +5cm
- Legs +8cm
on a ready-made bodysuit, where the length is “forcibly” stretched. Because the fabric of the suits elongate, many manufacturers feel that a slight patchwork assembly is okay. If you manufacture them this way, due to the forced expansion,
- the fabric becomes more transparent, and the typical problem of visible body hair arises.
- if you were to add breast pockets, the back zipper may not close…?
On the other hand, our store creates a pattern specific to each and every one of our customers. Because it is a bodysuit pattern, added labor and cost is required for a perfect fit. Please take a look at our gloves too. When you hear adjustments for gloves, you’re probably thinking about finger length. But, at our store, we also take into consideration the “thickness” of the fingers.

Having the Adam apple's may concern some men. Some have it, some not. In cases of having a strongly visible Adam’s apple, we recommend “Throat blurring processing”. For those who do not have this problem, the “Neck wrinkle reduction processing” should be sufficient.

How do we work?
In a traditional factory, a one bodysuit is made by different persons:
- a person responsible "only for arms"
- a person responsible "only for neck"
- a person responsible for combining all parts together
Because it's a very simple work, everyone is able to remember it quickly and it makes overall production costs lower. But it has also its demerits. For example, in case of someone's mistake, it's impossible to find out which part is inferior. Furthermore, since the bodysuits use stretch material, mistakes cannot be seen from the outside when the different body parts are forcibly connected. In other words, it's impossible to find out where bodysuit has defects in quality.
As the answer to all the problems above, in our shop a single person is responsible for a single client's order.
This way costs become significantly higher, but in case if there is something wrong with the product, it becomes clear who is responsible and where the mistake has occurred.It's a compromise between responsibility and costs, so we are able to serve our clients the best products possible.

There is no doubt, that there is no other shop which sells bodysuits with such a small amount of seams like ours.
The reason behind the bodysuit longevity.
When sewing is finished, we do inspection. One by one, we check every bodysuit thoroughly, in case if any threads are missing. Just for this double-check process, we have a different person take charge instead of the person responsible for sewing the suit.
