Was an idiot years ago when I first got into lolita fashion, I have been absent from the fashion for a long time and still have my old taobao purchases. What is the likelihood that my good-conditon used items will get bought for a low price if I list them on LM?

>> No.10343163

It's pretty hit-or-miss. If you get lucky you've got a dress someone was looking very hard for and they'll pay pretty close to retail.

Far more likely you've got one of few hundred less hyped up dresses and people just gloss over your listing and then proceed to buy from one of the taobao resellers though.

Might be a good idea to "promote" your listing in as many places as possible -- your own comm/swap meets, facebook, BST, etc etc.

I just got a used JSK in the mail but the side zip is kinda janked. The teeth are only attached to one side of the pull, like a hoodie would be. I don't know how I'd fix it, because the top stoppers are plastic and don't seem to be removable. Can I do something to fix it myself, or should I just take it to a tailor? I tried bending the side of the pull open more with pliers so I could fit the other teeth in but that didn't work.

I think they’re great! Better quality than body line or Ataina and I’ve got size 9 1/2 feet so I can’t fit in brand shoes. This is all assuming you’re a sweet lolita. Their quality is good compared to most lolita shoes and for sweet Lolita you need lolita specific shoes, but if youre classic or Gothic you can get away wearing normie brands and could probably find better quality.

I’ve managed to sell all my Taobao blouses for nearly retail at swap meets. Main pieces have been a lot harder to get rid of though, especially in smaller sizes. If you price them low enough they will be bought eventually, but price them TOO low and people will be suspicious of undisclosed damages. One thing that’s really helped me is advertising in my local general Jfashion and “kawaii fashion lovers unite desu~” type of groups because those tend to be populated with people who are looking for bargains and are less concerned with quality.

Why do I always have the feeling that fluffykawaiijo only does her YT to become an influencer and gets super salty when her growth is not as she planned it to be?

>> No.10344087

>>10344084
Do you own any cutsews or blouses that actually look good with skirts? Often if you're used to OPs and JSKs you've never had to consider the waistline of a blouse/how fitted it is and whether it's a good length to either tuck in or sit over the skirt waistband, and so you can actually end up needing to buy different blouses or being more creative with jackets/cardigans etc to make an outfit look right.

>> No.10344089

>>10344083
I have mixed feelings about her. Sometimes I feel like she’s an efame try-hard, and she has attracted a following of itas and lolitas at heart, but I do enjoy some of her content. I think her earlier coord with me videos can be helpful for people to get the hang of coording and even as an experienced lolita it’s fun to see another’s process. But the ones she posts nowadays she spends the entire time just getting compliments from itas that worship her and it takes two hours and makes some ugly coords. I enjoy having any new lolita content, though, and I like it when she films at some of the European meets and conventions because I’m curious what they’re like. I think it’s a tough line to walk to actually seek an audience and trying to use click bait and buzz words so YT’s algorithm doesn’t bury you but not come off like you’re trying too hard. I think sometimes she misses the mark

Seconding cutsews, and blouses where the edges are frilled - pic related, the frills usually cover the waistline so if you have muffin top or a fully elastic waistband these will still look good. If it's a high-waisted skirt you can still tuck the blouse into the skirt.

For white shirts, wear a skin-tone cami underneath it, it's near-impossible to find white tops that aren't slightly sheer. You can also try pink or red cami, apparently people say the tones work, I've only done skintone.

I'm also going to add, if you have a lot of difficulties balancing the colours, or wrapping your head around issues with skirts, consider buying a vest or bustier that matches the skirt. Then you can treat the skirt+vest together and coord it exactly like a jsk (switching jsk, if that helps your brain). When you get tired of always coording with the vest/bustier, wear it with a blouse or buy another vest/bustier and get a new look out of it. Most of the burandos have past release bustiers/vests floating around secondhand, if you need them in a custom colour F+F can probably put together a decent one.

I'd say the quality of the shoe itself is alright, about the same as Bodyline. The sizing is a pain in the ass, you'll typically have to get a size or two bigger than what you actually wear. They're not worth the price at all, but if you can find them second hand for $30 then they're reasonable

the main points of matching in lolita is to bring out either the primary or secondary color(s) usually with complementary ones already in the main piece or to use a different color that compliments the main piece. it's a little more fine tuned than matching normie clothes, but you definitely don't need to match specific parts to others. try looking at a set and then figuring out why it goes together. what style do you wear?

Only buy from CCF if you have no other options. While I appreciate their size range and design options, you can get better quality from both Antaina and Angelic Imprint and Sosic Shop in terms of size consistency and material texture/thickness. I have had shoes from most sweet lolita brands that offer size 43, and CCF is now my last choice for new shoes. The Chinese stores put pop-buckles on theirs, while CCF has a standard buckle. CCF also has a very poor tread on the sole. The material is thin and wrinkles easily. Sure, they're cute, but they won't last you a long time.

How would I dress up my otherwise non-j-fash bf in simpler aristo (or ouji I guess, but I think that'd be too "boyish" to suit him) with items I could get within the US? Like, what items or details in clothes should I be looking for? And is there any way to forego a jacket? Of the few suitable outfits I've seen they all seem to have jackets and it is going to be really hot where we're going to be.

They aren't different than fanny packs. They're literally fanny packs just version 2.0, and they're a western trend that got brought over to k-pop which is why they show up in Korean fashion at all.

You...pretty much can't manage that. The details are what makes an aristocrat/ouji outfit not just "formal menswear", and those details are missing from most of what's available in Western stores. You're better to just have him wear something smart.

>>10346243
Yes, if you're intending to make your own clothes it's possible to do plus-size ouji but likely you will need to learn at least some basic pattern modification or drafting. There are patterns available in Otome no Sewing that are suitable for ouji but they are not plus size, so you're best to look for a close-enough commercial pattern and then also at the pattern shapes for ouji (you can probably look at scans rather than buying full volumes of OnS) to make the modifications. Fabric/pattern shopping recommendations will vary based on your location. Are there any fabric markets or stores where you live, and what country are you in? Have you looked online?

Oh God I did this one time and gave it up really fast, I also live in a similar climate but you have to keep in mind you're likely to be outside walking around a full day while in Japan. It's easier back home when you can go to a meetup for half a day then come home and properly die in the living room and then be revived by a nice shower.

Yes, lightweight outfits, but I'd also advise a lot of breathable, natural fibres, cotton at minimum, cutsew is king. Cutsew dresses, if you have the summer ones, are also good (the winter ones are made with thicker fabric). Plus, planning your outfit so that you're wearing lolita on days when you don't have to climb a hundred temple steps. If you really need to get both a tea party and temple climb done in one day (or similar), pick a cutsew and pair it with shorts, bring a thin polyester jsk. Then you can throw a jsk over it for the tea party, take the jsk off for the temple climb, thin polyester jsks roll up pretty small (the cotton ones hog a lot of space). You can also pack a handfan and a UV-blocking fold-up brolly/umbrella if you have the space for them in your handbag.

Some other anons have advised a hoop petticoat as it'll be more airy around your legs. It's not something I've tried -- Japan has a lot of small narrow spaces where it's easier to hold down a normal petti than deal with a hoop petti imo, just mentioning this as another option.

I actually saw lolitas in full gear complete in Takeshita Doori in August with wigs and full face makeup so maybe it's just me that's a wuss. Still, I'd go with what's comfy for you to move around in rather than overdress and then have to deal with being tired and not enjoying your trip.

Go with an half-empty suitcase and haul back stuff from closet child. You also do not need to bring water bottles when you're in the city, there's usually a vending machine/kombini around the corner and you can try the weird drinks they have, and they'd be properly cold.

No, because the lace would never sit flat like that with those big gaps. It's impossible to get actual lace tights to look like that and sit flat against the leg unless you are literally gluing them on each time and barely bending your legs when you walk so they don't shift around, just think about how much regular tights have to stretch....

i have an OP i love to death. it's beautiful, but very formal. it's not something I could really wear on a normal day. I've worn it probably 4 or 5 times, and I truly think I've peaked in coording it. it's also a little too big on me.

on the one hand, there are plenty of lolitas who own dresses they don't wear very often. but also that money would be nice, and I don't love the idea of "wasting" it by having it sit around. thoughts?

Yeah, I noticed pretty much all mori models are skinny and rectangle shapes. But I really liked the layering effect and cozy feel, so I've been refining my closet to include frilly/lacy/neutral toned pieces that can cinch at my waist. I figured lolita pieces could be mixed in with that as an alternative look. Proper mori fashion became a no-go when I realized my boobs will hoist loose dresses into a garbage bag cosplay lol.

>> No.10348404

>>10348138

So much depends on your specific body shape and size, though. I'll try to give some general pointers:

- bust size under 100cm, as in large cup size (above D cup), hourglass shape (difference of ~10in between your bust size and waist size) -- these body shapes generally do best in low-waisted jsk (preferably with adjustable straps), or do a skirt + vest. JSK/vest will visually "cut" your bodice up so it doesn't look like a giant mound between your neck and your waist. Low waist and adjustable straps gives enough fabric to cover your boobs, and low waist also gives you enough to emphasise your waist before getting into the poofy skirt.

- small apple/rectangle body shapes (shoulder width roughly 39cm or under) -- this will fit into most burando's tent dress. Yes you will look like a tent but with a apple/rectangle shape there isn't much of a waist to emphasise anyway, at least you'll look like a kawaii tent.

- bust bigger than 100cm -- you're better off with custom-made or buying secondhand custom from someone else similar to your size. Even if the jsks go up to this size most of them never really look "right".

If you want to buy a brand skirt, I'd suggest doing it purely for the raw material exclusive brand print -- take it apart and put it on a waistband that fits you, or sew it to a matching top.

Also seconding these anons >>10348167 and >>10348171, skirts and mori are terrible for busty gals.

>> No.10348425

>>10348382
This is because even though a dress can stretch up to 100cm doesn't mean it should or it's meant to be worn that way. Shirring isn't meant to be stretched to its limits. The dresses are meant to fit the same size people as the skirts. People just stretch them beyond their means.

Though >>10348402 is right, and a lot of newer AP is made a bit bigger than it used to be, and they don't make as many skirts now, so there is the fact that most skirts are a bit smaller than modern AP dresses, but ultimately, the clothes in each release are all made to be worn by the same person if they please.

>> No.10348475

>>10348404
So as someone who’s slim but with a large bust, I find low waist JSKs look odd because it just accentuates my curves. High waisted JSKs look better IMO because while it may make my body look a bit bigger my limbs are slim enough for anyone who sees me to tell it’s because of the poof if my dress, not that I’m actually fat.

Yeah, I tried to give very generalised advice, until OP tells us more info about her exact body shape and size it's nearly impossible to cover every possible scenario.

Most jsks aren't cut that deep, low-waisted jsks are often quarter shirred so the bust-to-waist seams are often pretty fixed. This means for girls where their waist is much smaller than their bust the dress waist simply "floats" outside their actual waist -- shirring is not going to pull the seams closer together in front, so the waist usually just floats there.

That's another reason to recommend them to the busty crowd, especially under 100cm there's usually enough fabric to cover the curves in the right places. But I guess you must be a unique case if the dresses really seem to accentuate your curves that much. Anyway without OP chiming in there's not much help to be given either way.

I just got my order from closetchild today and I honestly feel pissed. I ordered a jsk in "A - Like New" condition from them and one of the photos had a teeny tiny pen mark on the bow.
The actual bow in person is a big ink smudge that went all over the place. Looking between this bow and closetchild's photos, I can tell that they overexposed the proof pics, fading out the smudge.

Lack of demand, I'd say. For a long while they'd be the last things to sell out, and their secondhand prices are always so much lower. I'm not really surprised brands decided not to make them if girls don't buy them.

JSKs are more popular because they're easier to coord but still give you a lot of options to change looks. It's a cohesive block that covers 70% of your body so you don't have to worry about your top half not matching your bottom half (or, in this age of chiffon blouses, finding something else to cover with). While at the same time changing your blouse/bolero/shawls/cardi/ will still give you very different looks. Best compromise between easy to coord and easy to change up.

Also helps that it's the cut that's easiest to add a panel of shirring to and not have it look awful, so it's the one that fits most girls of different sizes. Skirts will give you muffin top (fully elastic waists are ugly), OPs with complicated cuts are hard to add shirring to.

If you're very tall, or very fat, then keep in mind the bodices don't magically get longer, which is where most of the problems will be, either the waists get hiked up to under your boobs or there's not enough fabric to cover your boobs.

not the anon who previously posted but since no one got back to you -- I'd contact them and see what they say. Include proof photos, and do it asap. Worst that can happen is they tell you no refunds, middling result is if they tell you some of their socks are like that. No real loss from just reaching out and asking them about it.

The longer you sit on it the more suspicious you look and the less likely they give you a serious answer, because it starts to look like the socks may have been perfect when you unboxed it, then you damaged it afterwards and now you're angling for a refund. So pretty much, don't sit on problems like these, just message them. Proof photos should show the tags and the little silver clips attached to pristine socks while also showing the holes, if you can.

Raschel lace has to hang limply like this, it has no body and will drape on whatever you put it down on, instead of sticking out like a stiff piece of plastic. Meta is the only brand that used it, the others -- Bodyline, Marble and Visible, had a tendency to use the cheap plastic raschel lace that stuck out stiffly, don't use that type of raschel.

If you're going offbrand it's something you'd want to pay attention to, because bloomers edged with stiff plastic will be itchy af.

Agreed with torchon being more common and easier to find.

I have one Meta JSK I love but I hate that is uses raschel lace because almost everything else I own brand or handmade is torchon lace, which I prefer. I can't even coord it yet despite having a blouse, headdress, and JSK because I am waiting for Meta to release something I like enough to buy along with their raschel lace socks ($30 shipping just for $30 socks is too rich for my blood) so I can have the socks actually match.

Definitely save yourself some trouble and go for torchon lace or be prepared to have a whole separate set of items to be able to match laces on any raschel lace pieces.

Do people ever mix laces the way mixing metals became a trend in mainstream fashion at some point? Is there a tasteful way to mix laces? I own some pieces with different types of lace (ex: a Maxicimam cutsew with tulle and torchon lace) and I generally pick torchon and Match everything to the torchon lace or go with tulle and Match it all to the tulle for each coord rather than mixing and matching.

Most chiffon blouses are tulle lace and people still wear them with btssb cotton dresses (torchon lace), so there's that.

Does the raschel lace look really off when you try to coord it with torchon? I thought torchon vs raschel always came down to the lolita's preference rather than it being clashing.

are there any lolita collectors that have posted their big wardrobes online?

The biggest ones will probably be on weibo, the chinese lolitas have some mind-bogglingly large wardrobes.

Western wardrobes seem kinda trifling compared to things like that one girl collecting 14 of the same btssb jsk (different releases and different colourways) or the other one that had Daydream Carnival in dfferent colourways in different cuts (I think I recall same jsk in different colourways and salopettes. Not sure if she had the skirt too).

I don't mind it if I wore a torchon lace blouse with a raschel lace dress and then torchon socks and headpiece, but I have seen people called out in ita threads for mismatched lace. I don't post online and haven't been active in my comm lately but I still don't want to walk around wearing things improperly if that is something that could make an otherwise nice coord with all brand pieces ita.

How do you guys not get paranoid with the possibility of someone ruining your dress while in public? Like someone passing by and accidently spilling something or if you're at a con, someone in body paint rubs up against you passing by.

Larping what? It's a genuine question I have for those that wear long sleeves and dresses out in public.

I've had people splash mud up from puddles while I'm near them. They didn't mean to, they just carelessly rushed through a wet spot on the sidewalk.
I wear a long coat if it's wet out, and wear socks that can be laundered easily. If I can help it, I stay clear of people with drinks or food and check seats before I sit on them.
Honestly though, most things can be washed or dry cleaned. It's also a good idea to bring a laundry stain pen with you.

Do you need a shopping service to order from Maxicimam ?
