I can certainly identify with the dark blue hakama for modesty reasons. Women in my dojo wear from blue belt onwards. The first time one of my best friends wore her (too long) hakama, there was a ripping sound during one of the moves. Fortunately it wasn't her brand new hakama but her gi trousers underneath and the hakama covered everything. Naturally once we'd figured out no serious damage to her or her modesty, the rest of us girls were, "waah, so sexy, a rip here. a rip there, matches your ripped jeans.", "eh, new fashion statement?" etc
