It's not making fun of them, SJW-chan. It's calling a Japanese fashion the way it's called in Japan to avoid wrong associations.

Thoughts on wearing lolita dresses without petticoat?
>>
There was a chinese lolita on instagram with literally a room full of brand main pieces. Anyone remember the name or saved the picture?

is that the same girl who has michael's blessing in every colourway too?

>>9690831
It ain’t Lolita when you do it but otherwise go for it. Just don’t post on cof
>>
>>9690831
I often do it for everyday clothing, especially when the dresses are too short and there's an important risk of having the bottom my petti on display
>>
>>9690832
Kinokobiubiubiu is what comes to my mind but I don’t know if she’s the Michael’s blessing girl who the other anon talks about.

I don't know who it is, I was trying to narrow it down so whoever knows can tell us both, sorry anon!

It's actually quite common on some of the older, longer dresses. It's usually the not-sweet brands that favored the tea-length dresses, so most of them had a lot less poof than the knee-length dresses to begin with. They generally looked much better if you didn't overstuff them, so they generally looked all right without a petticoat most of the time.

The knee-length dresses, on the other hand, generally looked like ass. Doesn't seem to matter if it was a classic dress from Mary Magdalene (which actually requires more poof, because they really liked doing pintucks and ruffles, all of which collapses into a heavy frumpy mess if you don't use a petti to fully fill out the skirt), or a sweet brand like AP, which generally puts more fabric into their skirt width precisely so you can look cuter being a giant poofy fluff, but of course you end up looking like a sad wilted lettuce of fabric if the skirt didn't at least have a built-in petti under it.

tl;dr, depends on the dress. Some of them look good without a petti.. Others look like shit.

Does anyone know if (preferably gothic) brands ever put out actually warm winter gloves? I want some nice, durable ones but my child hands don't fit into Western glove sizes and children's gloves are shitty quality, I was hoping Japanese sizing might be the solution.

Sweetie no, that's not how it works. Lolita has rules for a reason.

Chinese brands like that don't care about lolita, they are not lolita brands, they are just chasing what is popular. Come back when they're more consistent.

You're not fat but you don't get laid and you're cheated on in relationships? Are you trying to tell us you're autistic?

There’s corset lacing in the back. Helped me with it a lot t. Babydoll coat anon

>>9691062
In my experience corset lacing like that looks really bad if I tighten it that much, it ruins the shape of the skirt too
>>
>>9691061
I don't own any of their newer coats so take my opinion with a grain of alt but I have a 69 cm waist and my AP coat with an 80 cm waist fits me well. I think with the corset lacing tightening it a few cm and another extra few cm might be ok. Coats are meant to be worn with stuff underneath anyways so I think it would be fine.

It's a big difference but having said that it's a coat, you want the extra space between it and the coord underneath it. It'll be a comfy fit, I think.
>>
>>9691061
it'll be a little big, but coats aren't really supposed to be skintight anyway. i have a 63 cm waist and own several coats that range from 80-90 cm in the waist measurement. feels and looks fine! it's more comfortable for there to be a significant amount of space imo.

>>9691071
Hate to say this because my boyfriend has actual autism but autists need the rules to decide what is and isn't lolita, they don't get it just from the aesthetic. Wearing a petticoat is a rule so if you don't wear one it can't possibly be lolita to them.

It's sad to see things copied from such small a brand. I've accidentally bought an Aymmy replica before and haven't bought clothes or bags from aliexpress or taobao since. I can't keep up with all the releases to know for sure if it's a replica.
Anyway, if you're ever in Japan I recommend visiting Abilletage, they're known for their corsets and you can get your hair/nails done there too!

Break them how exactly? Runs? Tearing?

My main issue is wear around the heel and the toe (yes, even with socks) but I've worn printed tights many times with no other problems.

Do you keep your nails short and neatly trimmed?
Are you wearing very cheap tights?
Where are they tearing?
>>
>>9691133
They're not tearing because of my nails, they tear because of walking too close to tables/furniture, sitting on a chair or bench, putting on shoes, zippers, velcro, bracelets, rings, cats and dogs... I don't even have a pet but it happens. I only use cotton tights now.
>>
>>9691138
Yeah, Christ, either you're clumsy, not paying close enough attention or just have terrible luck. I've gone traveling, to conventions, walked a few miles in delicate tights with no issues. Granted I usually wear a very thin pair of socks to prevent tears in the toes and heel, but on the legs? Can't blame you for switching to cotton.

Mind if I ask where you usually get yours from?

IW larges go up to 100cm!

Also, VM has some extra space built in so they go to like ~96-98 cm in my experience. I wouldn't reccomend them if you are layering undernieth and plan to button them all the way but they work

t. also 95 cm

I participated in the Holy Lantern MTO that was this spring/summer. It's the first time I've done an MTO...at the time APs website said that they would start delivering them, I think, around mid to late October?

My orders status of 'sourcing from japan' hasn't updated since September. Is this normal? Are they just running behind because maybe they got so many orders? I'm sorry if it's a stupid question, like I said it was my first brand MTO and I guess I expected it to be here by now or go more smoothly than this...

I've owned my abilletage tights for years as daily wear, never had a tear, machine washed them after each wear without fading. abilletage tights aren't the same as multipack 20 denier tights from the supermarket. I spend 4000 yen for them the same way I spend 4000 yen on Moitie socks

Sorry, late answer but if you are interested in any more reviews: they used to have a much thicker and shinier fabric for their dresses but recently switched for a nice matte crepe which is definitely prettier!

I have an old meta dress with a longer length that looks decent without a petti. I prefer wearing it with just a low-poof petti, as I think it looks better on me that way but it looks fine without. The way it's gathered at the waist gives it some natural poofiness already.

Warning: I made this image for personal reference and then realized it might be useful. So yeah, it's ugly.

So I'm shopping for underskirts and after making this I thought it could act as a simple template for others trying to figure out how to lengthen the look of their dress. Basically it's as the text says; try to take a clear enough picture of yourself so the measuring tape is readable, then mark as needed (obviously I went with inches) and then mark again based on the measurements of the underskirt. And ta-da; you have a personal visual aid for deciding on which length option to go for. To say the least, I thought I would have needed the longer length, but then realized the shorter version will do the job better.

For reference, I am wearing a classical puppets cupcake petticoat that they sell at their standard 18" length. They have a longer size but it's a little "too classic" for a dress like this at 23" long. Also Candy Sparkle JSK with lace trim is 21 1/2" inches (55 cm) from the waist band to the hem. The trim is 2 inches, or 4 1/2 cm.

>>Do you regret your nose job?

Not at all. Sometimes I wonder if I would have grown to like my old nose, as I got more mature.
It was not broken, just a small bump

>>Approximate cost?
I can't remember. But it had to include the job costs, the hospital bed and anesthesiologist.
It might vary country to country, and it was a long time ago.

>>Was it difficult to decide on a surgeon, did you spend a lot of time seeing multiple appointments before choosing your surgeon?

It was a known surgeon that friends and family know.

>Any replies are seriously appreciated

I think is ok as long as the change is small, and fits the proportion of your face. I like to think it is an improvement on yourself. But seriously, I would go to a psychologist first to be sure your selfesteem issues come from something else.

But in general, even though it helped my self-esteem, it would not solve everything. Sometimes I would keep hating my nose and finding any angle to hate it, no matter what. Growing up and learning about my angles and feeling loved for others things than physical appearance have helped a lot.
I also used to go to therapy. That helped a lot.

>a classic dress from the Victorian era
Do you mean an actual Victorian dress? Victorian dresses are beautiful but they're not lolita, so wearing one wouldn't make someone a lolita.

>Do you regret your nose job?
No, in fact I regret not getting it sooner. I always hated my nose and now that it's not ugly as sin I feel way more confident and actually look pretty.

>Approximate cost?
I went to a super good surgeon and after my insurance covered a part of it, it cost me around $4500. If your nose is broken they might cover the whole procedure.

>Was it difficult to decide on a surgeon, did you spend a lot of time seeing multiple appointments before choosing your surgeon?

I saw only one surgeon that did both of my sisters' noses. I'd recommend shopping around and asking anyone you know that's had a nose job. There is definitely a difference between how good a surgeon's work is, their cost, and the healing process.

You shouldn't feel stupid or vain for wanting a nose job. It's an extremely common procedure, and if you don't like something about yourself you should change it.

I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s funny how when Kelly Eden was being criticized for fucking over AP shop staff for personal gain, Fahr was telling everyone to stop critcizing her actions and to get off their high horse, but when Kat Von D makes a makeup tutorial that has nothing to do with us she’s garbage who needs to get fucked and stay away from lolita.

I actually agree with her criticism of KvD, I dislike her too. What I don’t agree with is telling people that they’re not allowed to criticize one “celebrity’s” shitty actions only to then turn around and shit all over another “celebrity”. If you’re going to be holier-than-thou and lecture people, at least be consistent. Or are we only allowed to criticize people Fahr already dislikes?

Is she a real neonazi or a "neonazi"?

KVD used to date/was engaged with Jesse James, someone who was a neo nazi but never called him out. She's been accused of writing anti-semitic things to an ex-employer, but there's no proof if it was a forgery or not.

>>9692250

You should check out realself if you haven't already! There's a lot of testimonies and pictures from people who have had surgeries, and it's really good to read through people's experiences and get an idea of which clinics to consider.
>>
>>9692291
Yeah, I think Usa/Kumakumya are more like accessories or jewelry than bags, really. Not to mention most Japanese people I've seen with them also carried another purse and also probably a pass case. For them, there's no need for it to be big.

sigh...i'm a fucking idiot.

recently i saw a listing for a taobao dress on LM. and despite the several glaring red flags that it was just a marked-up replica (i even contacted the seller and asked them if it was the genuine article; they gave me vague-ish answer that they couldn't verify that it was THE brand because they couldn't find a tag, but that it was definitely the same fabric), I bought it anyway because I just...really wanted the dress. and i'm a fucking idiot.

a week or so later i finally image searched on taobao and confirmed that it was indeed a replica, selling for like $12. i paid $60.

I'm accepting my fate and biting the bullet on this one because it was my own damn stupidity, and the seller didn't technically lead me to believe it was the genuine article at all. i'm just kind of unsure what i should leave for feedback though at this point once i receive the dress and the process is finally over. what would you gulls do?

>tl;dr: stupidly bought overpriced taobao replica on lacemarket hoping it was the real thing; unsure what kind of feedback to leave; seeking guidance
>>
>>9692511
did you buy a nameless poem replica
>>
>>9692516
no, it was actually house of hannover
>>
>>9692521
I don't think print replicas are allowed on LM, so you could already have a case there. I'd leave a negative review desu, but you should at least leave a neutral warning people.
>>
I bought a blouse for a set that I like but when I tried it on it seemed too big for me. I noticed the dress has adjustable lacing in the back, would that help with making the blouse look more fitted since I'd be able to tighten it up?
>>
>>9692528
yeah, it was listed as 'Apartment JSK' rather than House of Hannover...and because of that, I didn't feel I have any right to complain now.

I do want to somehow warn people, though.

I don't really appreciate the roundabout way the seller played on my naivete, but once again, I feel like that's on me since they never explicitly claimed that it was House of Hannover.
>>
>>9692546
It would likely just make the dress tighter and the blouse fabric bunch up underneath, it might work it you pull the blouse down under your dress and tuck it into your petticoat before tightening the dress, but that depends on what areas of the blouse are too loose. If it’s really bad it might be worth just sewing darts into the back of the blouse for a more tailored look if you’re open to alterations. It’s hard to think of a solution without knowing what blouse and dress it is, as well as what parts of the blouse are too big for you.

You could always refuse the package and request a refund. Imo not disclosing that goods are counterfeit is bottom of the barrel, second only to actually scamming people by not sending out things they've bought. I want nothing to do with replicas.

Are there any places that list luckypack contents? how about websites/pages that list rereleases?

Sometimes I can find rereleases posted on lolibrary... I kinda wish they linked them all together so you could easy go through them.

I'm trying to determine the names/dates of most of my wardrobe. Most of them I can't even find on lolibrary, though I can find them in GLB. I can't find any of my luckypack pieces on lolibrary, and it's hit or miss as to whether I can find my rerelease versions on my few rerelease pieces.

Just curious if maybe others knew of any other resources for dating pieces. Most of my wardrobe is pre-2009

It seems like every third or fourth item I buy from LM, the seller makes an excuse that they are too ill to send it out at a reasonable time. Why don't they make up a better excuse...or just be honest? Apparently 70% of the lolita population is constantly sick.
>>
>>9692390
I wear a 9 US / 39 EU and they fit me perfectly.

>>9692546
Sometimes I use shirt stays to hold a bigger blouse down. That might work if it's not HUGE on you? Otherwise it tends to get bunched up in the dress when you move.
>>
>>9692659
Prints made specifically for the lucky packs are listed on lolibrary. You probably won't find something like a specific white blouse that came in an AP lucky pack since those are very generic. A lot of times lucky pack items are just leftover stock that didn't sell so searching for the word lucky pack won't really help since it will be categorized by it's release, not if it was ever eventually included in a lucky pack.
>>
>>9692764
I actually reported mrk to the LM mods on their Facebook page, they didn’t ban her but I think it might have contributed to the 3 offbrand rule. I still think they were too lenient though. She used to have ~50ish listings of ‘NWT taobao dresses’ but now it’s around 20 and she’s starting to sell marked up wigs as well.... Can someone else report mrk as well? Maybe if more people do that, they might be more inclined to ban them.

Echoing what the others have said. Most types of body modification surgery are permanent (or at least have a permanent option) these days. Science is awesome!

My surgery and my tattoos and my haircut and my makeup every day are the exact same thing: expressions of how I want my body to look. Some are just more permanent than others! I’m so happy with it, and I highly encourage anons who genuinely want to change their bodies and can afford to do so to do it. You only get one life, and there’s no prize at the end for dying exactly the same as you were born. Do what makes you happy with the skin you’re in, whether that’s a gigantic Pokémon back piece or a new nose or whatever.

This annoys me a lot and it's impossible to disagree without being dogpiled. I fit unshirred Moitie, VM, etc. and I have a dramatic hourglass shape. I also know overweight people who have proportions that resemble a toddler more than an adult. Having excess fat doesn't make you more of an adult or a more womanly woman, it just makes you fat. Insulting people who are smaller than you won't make you fit brand any better, either.

Also fuck that person who equated the statement that obesity is unhealthy to racism and sexism. Fuck them for equating scientific fact to hate speech and oppression. Fuck them.

>>9693002
I don't understand how these people look at something as luxurious and self-indulgent as lolita fashion, which is inspired by upperclass clothing from eras where economic and class inequality was even worse than it is now, and see something that needs to be accessible to everyone as if it's some fundamental human right. Pic related. If someone's eating healthy and losing weight that's great, but it still doesn't mean that niche Japanese fashion brands owe it to them to make clothes in their size. If you can't possibly be happy without wearing lolita you have bigger issues than just your weight.
>>
>>9693059
I hate the whole "I can be healthy and be overweight" narrative. No, you aren't. Yes, the BMI applies to you as well. No you don't have a medical condition, a big built or heavy bones, you are just fat. Only a small minority can be excluded from the BMI and only a small minority has a condition that affects their calorie intake (any even if, it's simply dieting hard-mode).
I'd love to reply to all of them, but I'd rather save my energy.
>>
>>9693067
B-but BMI doesn't take organs or bones into account, so apparently normal-weight people don't have organs or bones! And body builders exist! I mean, not a single person in that thread complaining about fit is a body builder, but they exist out there somewhere, so there!!

I'm also loving the girl who had a mod explain to her why expanding sizing would result in higher costs, and completely misinterpreted what these extra costs would be (someone told her that Melty Berry Princess goes for $600 on the secondhand market and she took this as evidence that AP was trying to rip off fat people), then later on in the thread is going “Ohhhh you don’t wanna meet this girl I talked to!!” and painting her as being super unreasonable because she’s skinny. Like, does she not realize we can all scroll up and see the actual conversation? Does she not realize the mod herself can read her posts and see how her POV is being misrepresented? How dumb can you be?
>>
>>9692984
It's been two weeks today. She dodges messages too.
>>
>>9693078
I think it's also funny how some of them are complaining about wider bodies or heavy bones. It's not like excess weight also covers your organs and slowly expands the ribcage or fat people have denser bones, because the body needs heavy bones to even lift all the excess weight.
>>
>>9693083
This gets me too. Yes, if you're seriously overweight some of your organs will enlarge and become coated in adipose tissue and your skeleton will warp. This is a result of being overweight. You don't get to subtract those factors from your weight or BMI, and you definitely don’t get to claim you’re in perfect health at the same time. They’re direct evidence to the contrary!

It reminds me of my extended family, many of whom are obese and have obesity-related health issues like diabetes type II, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, sleep apnea, hormonal issues and even colon cancer. All of them will point at these factors as the CAUSE of their obesity even though they only started seeing symptoms many years after crossing the obesity threshold, which strongly suggests they’re more likely to be EFFECTS of obesity. And even then, whenever someone, even a doctor, suggests they try to lose weight, they insist that they don’t need to because they’re perfectly healthy. Critical thinking went out the window a long time ago.

Personally I do have skeletal-related fit issues with certain brands and pieces. I have wide shoulders and long arms which makes most OPs fit really awkwardly on me, and wide hips which means brand shorts are out of the question. However when I try to bring this up in a conversation about fit issues I get shut down because I’m skinny and "lucky". Why though? They can lose weight, I can’t shorten my humerus.
>>
Okay, stupid question but I vaguely remember there being talk of a store that sold brand somewhere in chicago (like Tokyo rebel). I'm stuck here today and was hoping to shop to kill the boredom. Is there such a thing? Or am I just going to have to stare at Chanel I can't afford like all the other pleb tourists.

Being someone who was once massively obese, with a thyroid/hormone problem that makes losing weight very hard, who is now a normal weight, I agree with this.

Sure, You can be overweight and eat healthy and work out daily, etc, but if You're truly healthy, it will be reflected in your body as well and you will be closer to the average in terms of weight.

Face it, fatties. You have to take responsibility for your actions and work on changing yourself. Fat acceptance does nothing but make people complacent and delusional.

The petticoat helps to keep the skirt in shape, it's hard to tell buy pictures, becouse the pose/angle can make it look nice even without it. But you should get a petti if you want any kind of shape, even if it's small.

Fast fashion is far more capitalist than lolita what with sweat shops etc. Just because lolita is expensive (and yes, it does to a certain degree have a culture of needing to keep changing and expanding your wardrobe) doesn't mean it's on the level of luxury brands like gucci or saint laurent etc in the difference between production costs and price.

Dumb question, but where/when should I get lucky packs if I want to get a pack that's a somewhat-wearable coord straight out of the pack? I'm looking to start wearing classic lolita and I want to start with a few lucky packs so it feels less intimidating to start coording with some items.

Both Taobao and Japanese burando's alright, although I have more experience ordering from Taobao.

If you are looking to get into classic, you could try Innocent World. Oddment packs are basically capsule wardrobes although they probably require a few more accessories and don't come out regularly.
I think you are looking for "happy packs" which have their contents revealed and are generally meant to go together. IW has put out a few of them before, and Meta's skirt happy packs have been getting more and more cohesive than in the past. Meta also puts out a New Years print happy pack but it's not always classic.
>>
>>9693653
>wear a petticoat
Not a tutu or a short costumey piece of garbage, an actual petticoat, preferably made of layers of chiffon or organza as tulle deflates and becomes useless quickly. It should be about 2" shorter than your skirt and its shape must match what you're wearing (A-line vs. cupcake).
>cover your shoulders
If you can't wear a blouse under your JSK, wear a bolero or cardigan on top instead, just please don't go out with your shoulders bare. The only exceptions imo is when the weather is too warm, or if it actually looks good, though the latter point is debatable, most JSKs look like shit worn without a blouse.
>more or less knee length dresses
This applies more to too-short dresses: If you can't bend over safely in your dress, it's probably too short. Most common length for dresses is about knee length, a bit above or below the knee is the safe too depending on what you personally find comfortable.
>wear bloomers
Bloomers themselves aren't mandatory per se, some people hate them so it's fine to wear shorts instead, but please wear something to cover your underwear, it's too easy to accidentally flash people whether it's windy or not.
>cover your legs
Bare legs look stupid in lolita, please don't do it. Sheer pantyhose aren't a thing either, especially if your name is Frances. Ankle socks are fine for summer, knee socks are okay if they actually look good on you because they make most people look stumpy; OTKs are popular, as are tights. They can be printed, patterned, or plain with lace at or scallops the top, just don't wear completely plain socks, they make you look like you cheapened out on your coord.
>wear something in your hair
Even a tiny hair clip is better than nothing at all. Try to actually style your hair before you slap something on, and pick a hair accessory that flatters you.
>>
>>9693970
How about you fuck off and stop being such a weeb?
>>
>>9693653
>>9694045
Also,
>wear high quality pieces
If it's made with cheap materials, it's usually obvious. You could be ticking all the above and still look like garbage if you're wearing cheaply made shit from whatever Chinese seller you bought from on eBay or Milanoo.
>groom yourself
Should be obvious but apparently isn't: style your hair*, fix your nails, iron/steam your dresses, clean your shoes, use sock glue if your socks don't stay up. Looking unkempt in an expensive, fancy fashion is embarrassing to you on a personal level and to the group you're with if you're at a meetup.
*A note about hair: You can wear a wig if you want/need to, as long as it's high quality; don't settle for any old cosplay wig, and don't just plop it on your head without styling it. If it doesn't look like natural hair, you shouldn't wear it. This is something that an obscene amount of girls fail at so I feel it's important to say.

Any idea what happened to the Vietnamese indie brand Bunny House? Their Facebook is still up but their google forms isn’t taking any responses. No indication of a hiatus or calling quits, but I’d hate to see them go. I love their petticoats and mine has lasted forever but I wanted a blouse from them too...

>pack that's a somewhat-wearable coord straight out of the pack
>classic lolita

If you have no issues about secondhand/someone else coording for you: Lolita Desu lucky pack (secondhand items)
- very few of the classic brands do an actual coordinated lucky pack. Lolita Desu will accept requests where you tell them what you like and they’ll send you a “blind” bag of secondhand stuff, so if you request a full coord, they’ll do their best to put together one. Of course, don’t expect a full outfit for $10 or something, and keep in mind you’re basically trusting some random person to coord the outfit for you, so ymmv, and keep your communication and expectations clear.

If it must be new and must be a matching outfit : Meta, AatP
- Your best bet is to watch Metamorphose and Alice and the Pirates for their special sets. Both brands kind of swing between sweet and …..whatever style they want. Sometimes they do swing towards something that looks classic-ish. Be aware that AatP didn’t include blouses in their last LP, so you might have to get your own blouse on top of shoes, bag, etc, while Meta sometimes includes collars with Dumbo’s ears-level Peter Pan collars.

If it must be Innocent World:
- Their LPs are generally whatever doesn’t sell in the sales, so it’s even odds whether it matches or not. The staff do generally make some kind of effort at matching, eg - you’re likely to get an LP that’s all black and white, or all warm colours, etc, but it’s still all sales leftovers, so it’s not always a coherent outfit. The oddments pack never matches. It’s a nice capsule wardrobe about the size of a small refrigerator, but usually looks like it was frankensteined together from ten other wardrobes’ leftovers. In theory you should be able to find at least one decent outfit from all that stuff, though, and sell off the other stuff, so it’s not too bad if you can cough up the $300 or $500 or $800 + shipping they generally cost.
>>
>>9694155
That's why I wanted to buy a couple packs at a time to start with so I'd have SOME coording options, since I'm really indecisive when I look at all the options on catalogs. Having a limit (aka people choosing rando stuff for me) makes it a little less intimidating.

These are looking like really good options though, thank you!
>>
>>9693312
Can someone explain what this fiasco is all about? I'm so tired of fatties being angry about people tailoring a piece to make them fit them and then they just explode in anger when it actually gets altered.

Both look awful on her, but the second certainly looks better. Her boobloaf is all you see in the first one and at least it looks like she has a waist and isn't a fucking square in the second image set.
>>
>>9693379
I own several dresses from them and the quality is fine. The one time it wasnt, i returned it for a new one. Im pretty chubby, 80waist, 98bust and they all fit fine on me. The thing that irked me is how she complained how horrinle it was when clearly all it was was unflattering. Which sucks but we all get that one dress that looks like ass on us and then we know not to buy that dress again. Amd then she complained about not being able to be refunded? She replied to one girl saying she didnt pay through paypal since they are both in the same country. Why the fuck does that? I would never give up my buyer protection unless im buying/selling from a close friend. This girl is a moron.
>>
What is with AP's sizing? I'm too small for a lot of their dresses, but somehow half the cardigans I like or buy are weirdly small on me.
>>
>>9694195
Their dresses have become One Huge Size Flatters Nobody but the rest of their items are still made to fit their main customer base: average Asian girls. So if you're like me, a slender but long-limbed Western piggu, you're SOL.

Anon, I just ordered an XXL Lolita Desu lucky pack that >>9694155 mentioned. There have been reviews on here in the past, and as long as you're okay with second hand it looks exactly like what you want. I plan on posting mine when I get it, if you want to see!

I could understand struggling with sleeve length or the shoulders, but two cardigans I bought off CC without checking lolibrary for first just arrived, one has a bust of 84cm (basically no stretch), the other is only 86 (with some stretch). The latter isn't so bad, but the former makes me look like an overstuffed sausage.
My bust is only 84-85cm without frills, maybe 88 with frills, and I'm literally swimming in half my dream dresses.
>>
>>9694209
Is the price good for what you get? Couldn't you have found the same/similar items for cheaper or the same price yourself?
>>
>>9694215
I've done the math and for what I want (a big box o' wardrobe filler), it's likely going to come out to around $30 an item. Can I buy the same myself? Sure, I'm a pretty good second hand shopper. But I am really in need of a lot of stuff I just don't want to spend the hours picking out (tops, outerwear, etc.) Plus, I love surprises!

I'd think of it less as a value "lucky pack" and more like one of those normie shopping services like stitch fix. I'm not really saving too much money, but they are providing a valuable service for me so it's cool.

And honestly? Is there really that much value in getting a lot of shit you can't wear (oddment packs/lucky packs) or shit that is deliberately cheaper quality (happy packs/special sets/some lucky packs)?
>>
>>9694222
Ok but it would be really fun to personal shop for someone. For some people half the fun is shopping but others can’t navigate their way around Facebook sales,let alone Y!JA or in store shit.

Let me buy you flattering clothes, your body type will thank you
>>
>>9694225
Honestly, I agree and I'm the one paying them. Normally I'm all about trudging thru auctions and finding the ~perfect piece~ but lately I've been tired and desperately short on some fundamentals for my work wardrobe (I requested casual classic). I've got money from my side hustle and would rather just pay for a big box of surprise me right now haha
>>
>>9694214
That's strange anon. I only own 2 AP cardigans and a bunch of parkas but they all definitely fit me and I have a 86 cm bust. My bust is mostly ribcage though, maybe that's part of it?

I have plenty of others that fit fine, but I've had a string of one's that don't fit lately.

>>9694202
as a marshmallow girl with a 20cm diff between waist and bust, I can't fit their backshirred designs and sack dresses are unflattering. I reeaallyy wish they'd release more beautiful fully shirred OPs. I love full shirring, but I get that it's more of an old school style that isn't the trend anymore.

Always been curious about the lolitadesu packs, but I'll never buy one. I've tried buying lucky packs from multiple brands and I think I've sold off/donated everything from every single one of them. So many years of wasted money to properly learn that it's not a thing for me.
>>
>>9694342
RC has always been pretty dumb, but I agree the past few days have been especially stupid.
>>
>>9694418
I've only ever bought lucky packs where there's no surprise element. I always thought it would be fun to do the big IW ones purely to then sell them onto Lolitas in my native country who can't afford stuff at full price + the shipping from Japan, like some sort of lolita santa clause. But the truth is that's too much effort for me to list and sell stuff.

From what I've seen of Lolita Desu luck packs, they're worth it if all you are intrested in is a theme, a size or a brand. Meaning; you love one brand so much that you just want stuff from them, but don't have specific pieces in mind. Or you really need more chocolate-themed items. Or you just want pieces that fit you out of the box and want to make it someone else's job to measure and browse through stuff.

I once saw a haul where the girl said to Lolita desu that she wanted any causal clothing or accessories that thematically matched this one AP print (in a mint / pastel colorway) and it looked like Lolita Desu did their homework and made sure it all matched even though the brands of items ranged from AP to chocomint.
>>
>>9694442
You can request the lucky pack theme? I thought it was set themes.
>>
>>9694453
If there's a clear theme that you want like chocolate, strawberries, crowns, crosses, etc., they can do it.

Serious question, how do you fit into Japanese brands? I have a 92 cm bust and I feel like I'm just at the edge of being too big for most brands. Do your clothes fit? Are you comfortable in them?

I have a 93cm bust, but it's mostly ribcage (i'm a small b) and I fit in a lot of things. I guess it depends. I think most of the things I own have at least a bit of shirring in the back, but I don't overstretch it. Most of my blouses are Baby and I fit in them pretty well. it's not form-fitting tight but if I was to gain 20 lbs or so I wouldn't be able to breathe and would no longer 'fit' in them. Also, Baby made a lot of full shirring blouses (old school is my thing, so most of my experience is there), so as long as You're not fat, you should be okay. I'm just tall with a wide skeleton. It's a bit awkward, but I can wear a lot of oldschool dresses and blouses and skirts with no issues other than length. Most of my brand is meta or baby though. I guess you'd have to be careful with arms too. My arms fit fine in my blouses, but if you have fat/muscular arms that might not work either.
>>
>>9694563
no worries! my clothes fit pretty comfortably. I wear a minimizing bra with certain main pieces I own for a better silho, but other than that I've spent a lot of time hunting down brand that flatters me. I'm limited, and there are a few dreams I'll likely never fit (looking at you guilty meltin' sweets town, and 90% of Millefleurs), but I've done a pretty slamming job at building a legit plus size wardrobe that will fit me nicely even if I lose weight (broad shoulders, tall, and busty...I'll be a thwomp at any weight). it just takes abnormal time and dedication.

I'm guessing your classic? classic is the toughest for me to find brand for. VM, Physical Drop, Chantilly, and MAM occasionally deliver though!
I love old school, classic, and gothic, but there's just way more sweet that fits me. I'm resigned to the fact that I'll never have a themed wardrobe, just things I like that also fit. I like the fashion a lot though so I don't mind.

If you ever have trouble with the way your bust looks in main pieces, definitely incorporate more cute cardigans, aprons, jackets, and bustiers in your coords.
>>
>>9694574
TY. I thought it was velveteen, that was tripping up my search. You are MVP
>>
>>9694585
Np, I knew because it's been on my wishlist for a dramatic long time
>>
>>9694563
I have about the same (~90cm) and I don't really have a problem fitting into stuff, but it's probably because my ribcage is small so it's more soft tissue than bones. I even have unshirred brand stuff.
>>
>>9694579
>>9694599
I have a fairly small ribcage, but with DDs and wide shoulders. Brand OPs without shirring are basically out of the question and anything with sleeves (including blouses) I'm rolling the dice.

But as >>9694581 correctly guessed, I'm into classic, and shirring in modern/non-old school classic is much less common than sweet. What VM pieces have you found? I occassional find their skirts in my size but it seems like most of their JSKs/OPs are 88 cm and under.

How long should I wait for a seller to send an invoice on lacemarket before messaging them myself?

>>9694453
They have set theme options, but you can do a "build your own" where you can ask for pretty much anything you want. One girl even asked for a fuckton of MA*RS and they filled it

>>9694626
A week

>>9694626
I always message sellers right after I win/purchase something. Just say hey, I'm ready to pay the invoice whenever I get it, etc. Just to be polite and let them know I'm not a deadbeat buyer or something.
