In Hawaiian, the word KINONA means shape, and that’s what these products do: enhance a female golfers’ shape.
If you’re a female golfer who loves fashion, KINONA may be a brand you are not aware of but should be. KINONA is made for women golfers, by women golfers. The company was founded in 2017 by Dianne Celuch and Tami Fujii, two friends and corporate executives-turned-entrepreneurs. They are committed to making golf fashion more accessible and enjoyable for all women by bringing chic, contemporary, and functional fashion to the fairway. After all, looking good is just as important as playing well, isn’t it?
What sets KINONA’s apparel apart is its fabric. KINONA’s Italian fabric is what sets them apart from other apparel companies. It’s a combination of ECONYL – high-quality regenerated nylon and lycra. This results in superior fit, feel, and performance regardless of body type. The collections also feature apparel that stretches, compresses, and conceals in just the right places to flatter all figures. The fabric also has great moisture-wicking, sun protection, and antimicrobial properties. Shaping details such as higher waistbands, princess seam lines, etc. are built into all their shorts, dresses, and jackets. KINONA has added several innovative features such as tee holders and back pockets. They cater to women who are 30+ years of age, not exactly supermodel material, yet are comfortable in their own skin. That said, their apparel looks good on just about any body type.
KINONA seems to be at the forefront of popularizing the resurgence of the golf dress. Their Kick Pleat Chic Sleeveless Golf Dress is a sleeveless dress with a band collar a flattering high V-neck collar, and princess seaming in all the right places. The Italian fabric drapes beautifully, creating a flattering silhouette. The sassy front kick pleat adds both function and fashion as you stroll down the fairway. The mesh shorties help provide added coverage when you’re on the green. The Kick Pleat Chic Sleeveless Golf Dress is available in sizes XS – XXL and in Navy Blue/Foulard and Watermelon Red.
KINONA’s Swing and Swish Sleeveless Golf Dress is the perfect dress for just about anything; a day on the course, drinks at the 19th hole, or whatever else the club has to offer! It’s flattering, fun, and flirty. The Swing and Swish Sleeveless Dress features UPF 50+ sun protection and a 4-way stretch to get you completely through your golf swing without any pinching or binding. The zippered placket lets you decide how much sun you get.

KINONA’s signature mesh undershorts are also included. It’s one of the most flattering and comfortable dresses you will find.

The seam down the front creates a lasting impression and the slits on the legs give added breathability and freedom of movement.
