I'm curious if there is a general rule as to how long the Uwagi should fall past your waist.

I have wide shoulders and a tummy, so I needed a size six Gi, but I'm only 5'6" so it hangs about an inch above my knee. It just feels too long and was curious if I should have it Tailored.

If it matters I'm planning to study Icho Ryu after a 19 year hiatus :)

That is a little on the long side, it should just cover your butt cheeks.

If the fit is generally too big then try washing at a higher temp to shrink it. If it's a good fit apart from the length then take a pair of scissors to it!

Peace and love
