>> No.10602437

Just a heads up gulls, superbuy changed the way you do rehearsal packaging now. First 10 items are 20 yuan, each additional item is 1 extra yuan. My parcel's gonna be 41 items and the total charge for rehearsal (now called "Superbuy shipping expert service" which you gotta purchase in the warehouse BEFORE submitting parcels or the tab for it goes away) is $10 instead of the old flat rate of $3ish USD.

>> No.10602453

Wow, that sucks. For hauls that have a lot of items like yours you might as well just pay for the estimated shipping and get the refund.

>> No.10602532

I'm hoping I'll still save quite a bit of money since the estimated shipping cost was $300 (which seems a little ridiculous since I saw other 14kg hauls shown on their app in the user section being only $150-200). If not, at least I still have my shipping coupons and loyalty points. Still shit they added on more costs for rehearsal shipping though.

Sugargoo is new on the scene, but they have the cheapest currency exchange/shipping rates of all the agents I've tried (Superbuy, Bhiner, 42agent, Spreenow). I've done a couple of hauls with them now and each time I've experienced excellent service.

>> No.10602629

I'm also in the USA and have had no troubles using taobao's international logistic services. I've gotten a few aliwangwang messages from sellers involving sizing, etc but google translate helps. The only thing you may want to use a SS for is preorders, I'm not sure if you can do those without one

>> No.10602781

Wow, their rate is only 8 yuan per item? Would you mind sharing weight and shipping prices? I'm trying to get an idea of budget but their website is bugging out.

I'll definitely consider this, as well. Glad to know it went smoothly for you!

>> No.10602811

Sure, my last haul was 8kg and I paid $170 for EMS. This haul had a purse, some shoes and a pack of hangers so it was a sizeable box. I checked and the same parcel would have cost over $200 on Superbuy.

Yes, I've run into that before. I called my bank and they said my card was getting declined because the billing address was wrong, I double checked and it was correct but Taobao stores your address in Chinese order which may throw it off. They were able to manually accept the charge once I called though, so that may be worth a try for you. Sorry I don't know a true fix for it

-the long black wig
I'm a dumbass. this is only a partial wig. It's a small circle constructed to clip into your real hair to give it more volume and hime bangs, not a full wig like I thought. Smelled very strongly of chemicals when I opened the box and stank up the room I opened it in for hours. The fibers are very soft but get tangled easily, it was tangled when I opened it and a bitch to sort out. It looks pretty natural indoors but didn't pass the flash test.
The quality is only okay, so I wouldn't really recommend it. Don't make the same mistake I did and buy it thinking it was a full wig kek

Anon with the Yolanda blouses here with a late review.

Something that doesn't show well in the stock photos and mine is that the sleeves are a layer of lace and chiffon? with these glitter strands sewn in which look amazing when the light hits them. The top bow isn't detachable and the collar part isn't elastic. However the sleeves are elastic and the bows on them aren't detachable either but I think the lace on the sleeves could bother some people's skin.

I thought this was a cotton blouse for some reason so be wary that it's a poly blouse. The sleeves have elastic on them and it's fit was comfortable for me. (I have moderately bulky arms but they fit nicely without strain) There's these waist tie like ribbons on the waist which...is a nice addition. It has a clasp second from the top for puckering? But I wouldn't rely on it to prevent more than a little puckering. If your near the end of a size, I would recommend you just size up.

Size was not a issue again, although I think I could have afforded to go a size down for this blouse since it felt a bit loose fitting on my frame. The collar bow is detachable for this blouse and the lace wasn't itchy for me. I bought this since I was interested in the idea of a convertible blouse using a drawstring, but I'm still on the fence. The drawstring uses a glass bead on the end of it and I could see it breaking easier in hime mode. As for the look... it's nice? But I think I would just wear this as a puffed sleeve way more than as a hime blouse. Maybe it would be a nice alternative if you want to wear a casual hime cord in the ssummer? Also, the pearl that's on the end of the drawstring isn't big enough to prevent the drawstring from slipping out of the channel so be prepared to put it back in if it gets out.

What's the correct way to get a mobile link, such as the one here >>10600814 onto a desktop? When I click the mobile link, it opens the mobile site on my desktop, and it looks extremely fucked up.

Any help would be appreciated, because I encounter this a lot. Thanks!

glasses are here: (they have a TON of different frame and lens colour combos)

As for the capelet and stole, I believe they might only be available as part of the full set now? I don't see them available for purchase solo atm. (This is not the first time they have appeared, disappeared, and reappeared as available on their own, though.) Regardless, here is the listing:

Yeah; I'd be curious to hear what the warnings are -- I just used google translate to stumble my way through everything (Though admittedly, it's not a *huge* concern if it turns out to be something I need to alter or tailor a bit.)

also, general question, but once a package clears customs stateside, how often does it take y'all for it to arrive? It's always my biggest point of worry, cus that's always been the point in the process where I've lost packages arriving from overseas.

Sorry, I have tried my best. My Mandarin is rubbish.

Important matters: (Please read! Achtung!)
- For bulk-production, OP will have a few tweaks, adjusting the breast, adding to the waistline, and will have some differences from the picture.
- OP's sides don't have zippers and its back is all shirring (going off the translation in OP's guide for this one. Incidentally, OP only has the traditional version for some reason. 鬆緊 (Traditional) = 松紧 (Simplified) = 素鸡 (vegan chicken, a homonym)).
- OP will be a bit tight for those with large breasts, please exercise caution.
- The embroidery on the drapey part (that meshy, gauzy thing above the dress, I have no idea what that's called, sorry) and the chest might have a bit of fraying and some skipped stitches. This is a normal occurrence. Please be careful.
- It's normal that the overhang with the embroidery on the drapey part might be a bit tight and look unnatural. It's normal, you can stretch it (lit. pull a bit) before wearing.
- JSK's sides have zippers but there is no shirring at all. Before you choose a size please be aware what measurements are suitable for you.
- The material of OP and JSK's designs and jacquards may snag slightly (or lose threads, I don't really know). This is a normal occurrence.
- The cloak (the third item)'s hat is removable.
- The third item has a high collar which might be slightly turned over. This is a normal occurence with quality control.
- The third item has two layers of mesh (muslin?) on the shoulders which get slightly upturned during transit. It should be fine after a bit of ironing.
- Small items like the epaulettes and the bows are all pinned and might damage the dress, please be careful.
- No more than 50 of each model will be produced.

I also wear 6.5US, you want 37.5 if they have half-sizes. If not you'll have to choose the full size that best fits you, for me a 37/6 is usually comfy enough but it does bump my toes against the front of the shoe while I walk, short by about a cm.

Some pieces (like the black cape, shirt, and shoulder stole) are arriving later in June, so they aren't in this order, but everything else I got is of a pretty superior quality! I'm incredibly surprised at the socks/tights -- like I said in another post, I'm 5'10", and these stretch to fit me without straining the material. They don't cut off circulation on me, and the nylon is more dense than I expected.

The only disappointing thing is that the short blck capelet is a little cheap -- it's an unlined basic black cotton-poly blend fabric. IDK why I was expecting something thick like a wool from the images, but oh well.

I like these ankle socks from Yidhra. The lace on them is ridiculously fluffy. One of the layers is raschel lace but it blends in with the nicer lace so you can't tell even from afar. It's also the first store where I've tried on the socks and they weren't super stiff or tiny on my feet. I'm a US size 9 for reference.

How long is SAL taking these days? I usually use EMS but it was going to be pretty pricey so I opted for SAL on Superbuy. Also, any reason it says origin post preparing shipment twice within a few weeks of each other? Was it just sitting at the post office before and now it’s finally on the way overseas? I’ve never had packages repeat steps like that.

Anyone had issues with Sugargoo?
I'm reading a thread on another website which suggests 2 people have had packages lost when shipping with them, although the fault apparently falls to the shipping company and not Sugargoo themselves. I'm not sure if this is just an effect of virus times and bad luck. Neither person had package insurance either.

I was thinking of trying Sugargoo for my next order which I was hoping to start placing today.

Most of the complaints on Reddit are from impatient kids buying illegal fashion reps from shady sellers and getting mad at uncontrollable delays with shipping, so you have to take them with a grain of salt. I've had just one minor issue with them so far - I asked them to discard the box from one of my orders but they neglected to which drove up the shipping cost and I paid without questioning it. Otherwise I'm happy with the service.

I went through the blouses I ordered! Here's my thoughts. Will post quick worn pics if requested, just let me know.

Honestly not sure how to feel about this one. It's just such an interesting and unique design, but I think I may have liked the idea of it more than I do wearing it. The upper portion looks nice, but the material on the bottom portion looks pretty cheap, esp considering the price tag. It has a string at the waist to cinch, but no nice trim or anything so I wouldn't wear it on the outside. Tried on the white with a Baby JSK and liked it. Tried on the black with Meta's Magical Artefact and not sure how I feel about it, as I was hoping I could pair that together. I'll see if it grows on me.

I was kind of underwhelmed trying this one on; the lace on the sleeves doesn't look as nice as it does in the stock photos and reminds me of curtain fabric. The sleeves also don't sit where they should since it's free size and I'm 5'5" with arms on the longer side. I'll have to try it on with a few more dresses to see if I want to keep it.

Very nice and worth the price tag. I got the wine. Doesn't wrinkle too badly. The sleeves are really loose and so is the fit. I got the L size and the sleeve length is perfect. The buttons are covered by a little flap, which has beautiful embroidery details. Comes with a removable brooch.


>> No.10625452

Got three blouses from Yilia and this is my least favourite. Got the XL in Apricot. Pros: nice lace, sleeve length is perfect for me. Cons: wrinkly, pretty sheer. I think it'd look better after some steaming so the collar and lace lay nicely, but I don't think it looks as nice as it does in the stock photo. Something about this blouse just does not vibe with me and I don't like how it looks on me. I'll probably end up selling it I think. At <$20 USD you get what you pay for. Also, idk if that's Apricot in the stock photo, but what I received was yellowish and barely darker than off-white.

Second Yilia blouse. Got the XL. Still sheer, but I love the sleeves. You can cinch them or let them loose, they have lots of volume and are quire flowy. Happy with this one.

got the XL in white. The details on the front are pretty, and I feel like it'd really stand out when paired with a skirt, but you'll need to wear a cami underneath bc it's also quite sheer. Again, it's around $20, and you can tell it's a taobao blouse, but I'm happy with it considering those things.

not much to say about these, they're dirt cheap and very stretchy. Stock photos are just a tad off imo; the navy is much brighter, the red is darker and duller, and the pink is slightly cooler and less peachy than it appears on my monitor.


>> No.10625455

Very pleasantly surprised with this one considering the price. The material is soft and doesn't wrinkle, and is opaque. I got the navy blue with stand up collar option, I think I originally ordered the XL but received the XXL? I will have to double check, but it ended up fitting perfectly. The navy is not as vibrant as it is in the stock photo, more dull and dark but that works for me. The bow is removable.

This blouse has to be my favourite of the entire bunch. It fit me so perfectly in the bust and the sleeves (L), and the colour is beautiful and true to the stock photo. I got the pale pinkish gray. The material is really soft and almost velvety and it's quite opaque. Honestly I think I'm gonna go back and order this also in apricot and white, I just really like this style on me and I think I found my perfect lolita blouse lol. And at around $20, it's so much nicer compared to the blouses from Yilia. If you're gonna go for super cheap blouses, I recommend them from here or the link above.

That's it for the blouses! One last thing I'll note is that any blouse that had buttons on it came with a replacement button in a little ziplock bag, sometimes more than one if the blouse uses more than one style of button.

The post is kind of a disaster where I live right now so I want to wait some weeks/months before I move on with my order using 42agent.
