Should people particapating in nanchate go for a more realistic vibe with their uniforms? Or is it okay to be costumey as long as its cute?

Where is the best place to get school uniform and school uniform esk clothes?

Should seifukus classify as being apart of nanchate or does their need to be more effort put in to a nanchate coord?.

Honestly, japanese school uniform is kinda fetishy, but I wish that girls here in the west would start wearing skirts again.
I haven't seen a girl in a skirt in years, at most they were summerdresses, but besides that theyre are all wearing jeans, leggings or hotpants.
>>
>>9882928
Its only fetishy because of all the hentai and school girl porn honestly apart from them there perefectly normal and even cute
>>

>men sexualize this so it's fetishy
wew lad
>>
>>9882937
ofc theyre cute. I guess I dont see them as normal because i never had a school dress code or school uniforms. I reckon youre from bongland or a private school?

its true isnt it? If you wear a school uniform and some lad came up to you and asked which school you went to, and your reply would be "none". He would ask you if youre doing porn and will cover that up as a joke, or if hes more polite, why youre wearing it.
If youre 25, you look your age, and wear a school uniform in public, what would people possibly think if they dont know anything about jfashion? I bet the women would think that shes doing a photoshot but men which make up 50% of society uhh i dunno.
>>
>>9882941
In the part of the US were i live school uniform was mandatory from elementary on wards though it wouldnt be so bad if they were half as cute
>>
>>9882952
Just so you know, men approach/stare at actual school girls in uniform because of school girl porn. The uniforms themselves are not the problem, men addicted to porn are, is what I'm trying to say.
As for the public's reaction, it's possible to just say "Oh this isn't a uniform, it's a fashion style, I wear it because it's cute." If someone doesn't accept that and insists you're doing porn then it's their problem.
>>
>>9882952
People also think the same about lolita sands the age part.
>>
>>9882956
If men, which make up 50% of the population, see something as fetishy, wouldnt it make the clothing youre wearing to about 50% fetishy? Especially something so widespread as "school uniform". And what about the ddlg you hear about in every thread?
>>
>>9882960
Just because it appears in porn doesn't mean it's inherently sexual. Or are you implying that nurses, firemen, policemen, etc. are wearing fetish gear on the job?
Ddlg is an entirely different beast and honestly bringing it up makes me think you're baiting so I'm dropping out of this inane discussion.
>>
>>9882966
No, I wasn't implying that, because in my previous post I clearly said its somewhat a deviant clothing style, especially if youre older than school kids. Its like larping, but nurses and the like are all above the age of ~18, school kids apart from college students never are, therefore if you dress up as a nurse people will see you as a nurse, if you dress up as a pupil in school uniform, and youre clearly out of that age bracket, people will not see you as a pupil.
And youre never to decide what you are to other people, they decide that on their own and youll be treated accordingly.
>>
>>9882971
And by that logic if people see you in ott sweet and decora they must think your an age player right? Also lets not forget that alot of the outfits you see in porn look nothing like the outfits in real life.Its not anyones fault that normies assume anything outside of their perview is some sex thing. Does this also apply to girl who look older then their age as well?
>>
>>9882977
yes, people do see you as an age player and will ask you why youre wearing little girl dresses, you sometimes can read up on these stories in the feels threads. Girls look older from ages 12-16, but thats partly the magic of make up and sports bras. Its very rare for a girl to look 10 years older than herself if she hasnt hit menopause or was pregnant yet, which is impossible and unlikely considering that shes still in school (this is not true for super poor schools but they dont have school uniform anyway). And no i dont mind you or anyone wearing jfashion, school uniforms, gyaru, lolita or the likes because i know about them.

Should I even bother with nanchatte if I have a stupidly big butt? I just want to look like a cute, flat sillhouette anime girl but I have thick thighs and it makes every uniform coord look “sexy”. I legitimately feel like my body lewds everything I wear that isnt just straight up jeans. I can pass with long skirts, at least. Anyone else get away with this fashion with weirdly proportioned bodies/ big butts?

I would like to know this too. I have quite a few skirts and shirts and knit cardis and everything fits... but I just.. I dunno. I have thick thighs and an ass and it just doesn't look right... nor can I ever find non-stick girls in nanchatte so it jsut doesn't feel like it looks right on females with a more "womanly" (god I hate that) body.

I feel the same way. Before I grew an ass and thicker legs from the gym I felt very cute in nanchatte but now my butt throws the whole look off and it only looks not "sexy-ish" with an oversized cardigan, which gets really hot any other time than winter

Also I'm in Japan currently and there are so many mixes of school uniforms. All the girls look cute and comfy and middle school girls have skirts that go way past their knees. I will always advocate for real looking nanchatte as those cheap looking colourful seifukus with short skirts do look costumey and fetishy. I have both styles however and wish I could wear them more often. I'm too scared to wear them outside bc normies. I may attempt a cord in the fall because like I said the cardigan look is better on me.

Also there are so many cardigans, pleated skirts, cute socks and bow ties here I'd buy it more if I could wear it outside of conventions, although I usually cosplay anyways so rip.

Do any anons here have experience wearing nanchatte in daily life?
>>
Any of you gulls know any good taoboas for nanchatte stuff?
>>
>>9883044
I do not necessarily wear Japanese uniforms, yet my personal style is very preppy and definitely contains aspects of nanchatte, and school uniforms overall. I wear this on a daily basis, and it is no problem. Sometimes people comment on how girly or cutesy it looks, yet other than that it doesn't attract a lot of attention from "normies". I think that, as long as it is coordinated in a way that it looks like a genuine outfit, and not necessarily a costume, one shouldn't worry. So genuine pleated skirts instead of the costume-y ones with the awful, wrinkly fabric improve a lot already. Moreover, by wearing it a lot and thus incorporating it in your daily wear, one can become creative and add in some more casual aspects. I really encourage you to go out in such attire more often, and see what you would like to change, if you would like to change anything. Apologies for how vague this is, and I'd gladly elaborate on something I said here to clarify whatever must be clarified. <3

Im lucky in that while I do have phat thighs, I also have violin hips, so nanchatte hides the thickest part of my thighs while at the same time keeping cardigans/sweater silhouette pretty straight up and down (when they’re larger sizes, which I buy intentionally). So I’m not sure if it’s fair to use me as an example for boobs down, but I know that feel of wanting to be cute flat boxy anime girl when you have a western piggu body. I just accept I’m more pic related than the magazine spreads upthread. Nanchatte is the only jfash that hides the violin hips + fat thighs combo I hate so much.
It’s probably obvious but getting your cardigans large does help. And get the ones that are thicker, where you can see the texture, just thin knit material does help though. I can’t explain what I mean, but yeah.

I've always considered myself to have fairly thick thighs and calves. They're not chubby, but they're pretty muscular. And I get that stupid gap thing at my waist when wearing jeans. I wear nanchatte often, but I've never taken the time to think about it. I don't think nanchatte makes me look sexy, I just feel really cute and stylish. I too have violin hips like >>9885094 though. Maybe that's the difference?

For reference, this is me at different weights and with different skirt lengths, and shorts to show legs. I'm 5'5" and on the left I was about 145, middle 130ish and right 135ish maybe. The way I wear my skirts (except left, because at that time the skirt sat quite high) hides the thickest part my thighs, giving illusion of my legs being slimmer than they actually are. As far as butts go, they can make the back hem ride up, so my friend gets around this by hemming her skirts on a slight diagonal. It's longer in the back so it ends up sitting straight when she puts it on. Something for people with sewing experience to consider. I also oversize cardis for a boxy look, and I tuck my shirts into my skirt waistband.

I've never had a problem wearing nanchatte out. I've gotten straight up compliments when I wore a black seifuku. Sometimes I get asked if I'm wearing a uniform, but overall I get fewer reactions than I do in lolita. I do however get dirty looks when I have my daughter with me. I'm guessing they think I'm a teen mom which is hilarious and also incredibly sad kek.

You can take it further from school uniform territory and more into preppy category by switching from socks to tights, going for a fitted blazer, vest or cardi, and if you like to take influences from twee or otome, mixing in unusual colours and patterns. As for the bright coloured seifuku, going for casual and pairing it with a hoodie and running shoes is a safe bet. Go for muted accessories if you don't feel like going full weeb.
>>
>>9882990
Where can I buy cute blazers like this?
>>
Does anyone have any recs for really comfortable black Maryjane style shoes with a low/flat heel? I blew through mine after 3 years and they don't make them anymore, and the brand moved on to other styles. Price is not a factor because I have bad arches so I need good support.

Please help me, I am desperate. The last pair I bought broke within a year and they were supposed to be decent quality.
>>
Hello gulls! I'm new to the style,and even though I've worn several(exactly 3) different uniforms across my school years, I still have some questions.
Are skirts with the top of the pleats stitched ok? Because these are easier to find.
I know the brands arCONOMi, Cecile,Olive des Olives,East Boy,Candy Sugar, and French Toast(from the USA),plus some stores here in my country where I can get uniform stuff. Any other brands or taobao/AliExpress shops that would be good to check out?
Any inspo blogs/Tumblr/twitter/etc? I found an old Tumblr but it seems to be inactive and the last posts were football related?
I really like nanchatte and would like to use it as everyday wear because it's easy to mix and match!
>>
>>9887036
Oh and I forgot how do skirt belts work?
>>
>>9882770
When it comes to these questions I always refer to whatever I see in promotional pictures of nanchatte brands.

> Should people particapating in nanchate go for a more realistic vibe with their uniforms? Or is it okay to be costumey as long as its cute?

Even nanchatte brands vary from that point of view: Conomi has very serious vibes while LucyPop is very quirky. However, there is a general tendency to experiment with colours and palettes that would not suit real uniforms. As long as it's not a straightforward costume it's probably just a matter of style/preference.

> Should seifukus classify as being apart of nanchate or does their need to be more effort put in to a nanchate coord?

Not sure why sailor uniforms should not be considered nanchatte. It can also require quite some effort to pull them off as they can be combined with different scarfs and cardis and so on. Even if it's more common to find them in a set, I think they still classify as nanchatte.
Again, my reference are Japanese nanchatte brands and they do sell a lot of serafuku tops.

>>9887036
There are a lot of shops for seifukus listed in this spreadsheet from the Taobao thread

No offense but how is this related to Seifuku?
>>
>>9887036
One of the great things about nanchatte is that you can source it very easily. You don’t necessarily have to buy the big brands to make a nice outfit, though it does help. Have you tried thrifting or eBay? You can easily get the more generic items (shirts, knitwear, socks etc) for cheap and good quality, and go to the brands for specifically Seifuku stuff.
>>
>>9887092
From what I see, it acts kinda like a weight to keep your skirt from blowing up too much and showing your underwear. Some girls like to roll their skirts around them to make super short skirts.

I don’t think you understand how the school system works in Japan.

Also, there are stores that sell secondhand and vintage uniforms over there, though from what I remember they’re very picky about who they sell to.

picky how? like they won't sell to foreigners picky or only to someone that would use it for school picky? that doesn't sound very smart of them if they're trying to make money.

not to mention they're expensive
also the schools don't want just anyone picking up their uniforms and pretending they go to that particular school, it's bad for their reputation

Yup. Even though it's mostly cheap families and alumni buying them, they still have to be careful. No school wants to see their uniforms all lewded up in some AV, and no shop wants to be responsible for letting that happen.

How do you know he was from /soc/? I thought he was a girl at first because he said he got a taobao order in and posted a pic of a faceless girl in nanchatte, then he said he’s just a guy who likes the fashion and posted pics of himself in obvious cocktail-ish attire and I was like uh...
>>
>>9905519
Did he lie about his Taobao order then or is he just buying this shit to masturbate over?
>>
>>9905522
No clue. He was kinda knowledgeable so it’s weird. At the time his picture wasn’t his face so it wasn’t obvious he wasn’t the one in the pic. But now that I look, the background matches his self posts. Is it his girlfriend? He never mentioned having a girlfriend into nanchatte. Kind creepy indeed.

Got asked to take some photos of my Hug Sunshine stuff for people curious elsewhere and thought I'd share here. Sorry it's a bit long but it includes a comparison for Hug Sunshine vs Bodyline as well.


First up is a Hug Sunshine cardigan I got. It's pretty decent for spring/fall wear and soft fabric.
Cost $11.50 and came with a free bow.

Next is Hug Sunshine's "clearance" shirts. Both of these were around $2.50 each and also came with free ribbons (I had over a dozen of these at one point, they give ribbons away with everything).

They have some stray threads (especially around the button holes) and wrinkle quite easily without ironing (see the one on the right) but they're very nice for literally being under $3.

Okay this is the comparison part. The two black skirts are Hug Sunshine and the grey one is Bodyline.

Hug Sunshine skirts: around $5.50 each but you can buy literally an entire outfit (vest + shirt + skirt + tie) for around $20 as well.

Bodyline skirt: around $20 right now and a full outfit (vest + shirt + skirt + tie) for around $30

From the outside they virtually look the same aside from the adjustable waistband clasp that Bodyline's skirt has and the visible zipper that Hug Sunshine has.

This is where you can see the major difference. Hug Sunshine has a visible zipper on the inside while Bodyline's is still hidden. Bodyline also has a hidden pocket but from my experience it's a bit difficult to find in the folds of the ski

And this is the thickness between the two. The angle is a bit off so just use the section underneath my finger for accurate comparison. There's really no difference between them in fabric feel, heaviness, and visible thickness.

Personally, if you want the waistband and pocket then Bodyline is a better deal but I'm not 100% sure all of their skirts have them. If you're not picky those sorts of things and want to save money, Hug Sunshine is the better deal and you get free ribbon ties (or whatever they have in stock) out of the deal.

If you have any questions I'd be happy to try and help since I use Taobao a lot and have purchased from Hug Sunshine a bit.
>>
>>9906180

Which shopping service do you use?
>>
>>9906188
This is just me but I use Yoybuy simply because they pay me commission to promote them on a blog I run.
It's kept me out of the loop for other shopping services for over a year now but if you pop by the Taobao general there should be quite a few posts made recently about orders through other shopping services.

Wish I could help more with that but yeah, I don't really use anyone else now since Yoybuy gives me credit with them and I try not to endorse them outside of that blog, not because they're not good but because I don't want to use my own experiences as testimonial since there's affiliation involved and I don't know if that means I get treated differently or not compared to other customers despite using them for ages before I was affiliated.

I remember finding an entire Chinese blog dedicated to nanchatte with a lot of info on super specific stuff that almost never comes up here,such as discussion on the exact length a skirt should be, listing the uniforms for many schools per prefecture in Japan...etc. I can drop the link if anyone wants it,but it hasn't updated in a long while.

To me AliExpress seems more questionable in what you'd get quality wise. At least on Taobao they leave a lot of item reviews with photos to compare quality since on Ali it doesn't seem like there are many reviews to go off of.

Im trying to save up money so that I can buy nanchatte after I go to college (its across the country & i dont want to travel with a lot of stuff.)
I want to get a mix of jp brand (Like Conomi) and non-brand...

Does $400 sound like too much or not enough for at least 3+ full outfits? That means the skirts, tops, sweaters / jackets, socks, shoes, 1 coat, etcetc.
I can already get blazers really cheap from the thrift store so Im not going to calculate that in but.. im trying to see if I should save more or less?

Im probably not going to buy brand name socks so.. i might be fine there.
>>
>>9908211
Conomi cardigans are 60 and I think their skirts are 90, shirts maybe 40 and ribbons 15? IIRC shoes are 90 too but I don’t know why you wouldn’t just get some Weejuns or similar for 60 and under on sale at that point. 400 is too little for 3+ outfits if you want more than one full Conomi one at least.
>>
>>9908211
I think you could make it work, but you'd have to thrift or buy outerwear for cheap. If you got everything non-brand except for a small selection of items from brands that you really want, that could work.
>>
>>9908030
I think a randoseru big enough for a 15" laptop would look weird since it's a "rigid" bag.
On the topic of bags,can a Candy Sugar leather bag hold a 13" laptop?Are they real leather? Are the "candy sweet" bags from AliExpress any good?

Hope this is the right place to ask, what type of shoes go well with nanchatte seifuku?
>>
>>9908763
Imo / what ive heard:
Oxfords, dress shoes, non-fluffy loafers slip on shoes... brogues, mary janes.. businessy type shoes with a low heel..

Stuff like the old ladies at church would wear.

avoid sharp point style shoes.. !!!

Try for dark colors like black and really dark browns

Some wear sneakers for a sportier look. I would say to only do that with "sporty coords" like ones with track jackets cause otherwise it looks a bit lazy.
>>
>>9908781
is it heresy to say that converse look cute with nanchatte
>>
>>9908358
Im definitely going to have to go thrift shopping. The only thing I really want in brand are skirts.
Im tempted to make skirts myself because its so much cheaper.. but I do want to feel more authentic by having at least 1 brand skirt.

Im perfectly fine when it comes to outerwear.. The only thing I really struggle with finding is the tops. Esp because i current have a huge chest & short arms.

Im probably only going to spend a lot on the shoes, at least 1 top & 1 skirt.. otherwise i should easily be able to spend under the amount I plan to save.
>>
>>9908790
>spend a lot on shoes
a lot of US penny loafers or other styles that can be used for nanchatte can be found sometimes in really nice condition at your local thrift store
>>
>>9908786
I havent seen much, if any, conversation about it..

Im honestly surprised no one's talked about the folks wearing crocs...

>>9908792
I must not go to good thrift stores its honestly rare to see those type of shoes look good in a store (or to have my actual size)
>>
>>9908805
Crocs are pretty common in Japan rn. The colours and accessories they have are cuter than the ones we have here though.

When I wear a cardigan,I just roll my skirt up and hide it with the cardi. Now that is too hot for a cardi,how do you shorten your skirts?

Kind of off topic but holy shit I am so tired of every otherwise cute pump or heel being pointed toe in the US. Why do other women like that shit? It’s so ugly.

Converse actually do look good with nanchatte.
>>
>>9908781
Thanks for the insight, I'll check out some stores locally and try match them with my coord.
>>
>>9908918
I agree. Why are they so insistent on wearing elf shoes?
>>9908923
I like non-loafer coords a lot. It adds variety and they are comfy. I think I'm going to buy a pair of Adidas New York,or maybe New Balance sneakers.
>>
>>9908812
I found a really cute pair of light blue Crocs clogs at my local Marshall's. Lo and behold the tags were all in Japanese (as opposed to the standard few lines in all languages). Idk if the store acquired stock from Japan or what but I still copped them.

Never knew they were being worn with nanchatte though. Crocs has some flats that are really nice and comfortable but the clogs would probably look out of place.

Just wanted to chime in and say I have thunder thighs too. I'm really slender and petite everywhere else and have no boobs, but my thighs are just so big that I feel like pic related when I wear anything that doesn't cover them. I've even got stretch marks on them. I don't really feel like they sexy-up cute clothes (no boobs helps that a lot) but it does make it look like I'm trying to dress up younger than I really am or something. It takes away a lot of the cuteness and feels awkward. It really sucks.

>>9908812
Western Crocs do come in a few cute styles, but it's slim pickings. I actually think Crocs can be really cute! They have that chunky roundness to them that works well for cute looks. It depends on the style and color. I have a candy blue pair that I get compliments on all the time, which I never would have dreamed of since everyone goes on about how ugly they are. It sucks that we don't get as many cute ones as what Japan has though.

Speaking of getting stuff from normie-brands, I got this skirt from H&M a little while ago on sale. The length and pattern is perfect for nanchatte, if you ask me, the only downside is that all the pleats stand out from the waistband, making it look like I have a pudgy stomach and weird love-handles. Im planning on styling it with an oversized cardigan or vest tho, so hopefully that will fix the problem

Coming from someone with very prominent hip bones that is apparent in skirts, you look fine. It's still a smooth silhouette, a little flare there isn't unusual at all.

I think they're suitable, but you may need to tone it down with darker items so it doesn't go too far into fairy-kei territory. Maybe coordinate the neckwear with the skirt, but otherwise keeping it dark.

Small IG dump! Also,any backpack recs? I need one that can hold a 13" laptop. The classic Japanese high school bags are so cute,but even if I use the crossbody straps instead of the handheld ones,my back hurts from the uneven weight,and using it as a backpack feels...weird?

Since you want it to hold a laptop you'd probably need to look specifically into laptop bags and just hope for cute ones. I know if you search 'cute laptop backpack' on eBay some stuff actually is pretty cute.

If you're looking for something more 'school uniform' looking, I found this.

It does look cute! I was thinking about a 13" Kånken. How out of place would it look with nanchatte? I haven't seen it used in a coord,but since people are using "regular" backpacks (think eastpack ones),I guess it wouldn't be much of a faux pas?

Kankens are pretty popular so I don't think it would look odd at all.

And what about the north face ones? Not as cute,but very practical. Kinda gives it a sporty feel? Above all,this is school fashion, for girls that want to be cute + practical,so I guess that not everything has to 100% match(apart from your clothes. Because I don't know about you but I didn't match stuff like my backpack and my umbrella and shit to my outfits back in school)

Personally speaking, not everything seifuku has to be super-coordinated or perfect, just as long as it fits the aesthetic I want to achieve. It's ok if it looks a little off; it's more realistic that way.

A huge part of nanchatte for myself is customization and adding personal touches on fairly plain pieces, and North Face isn't really heavy on graphics. It's a blank canvas more than anything.

I am pretty sure I have already seen both in nanchatte coords. I think they go well with it and so do sneakers; I'd just stay away from the sporty stuff that looks more professional like actually made for hiking or sports.

I wear a white tee under all my button ups, but apparently a true red bra doesn't show through white (never tried it though
