Not OP but this is fine. Ouji is a lolita counterpart that is part of it. It's not really it's own fashion.

>> No.10219959 [DELETED] 

It is literally it’s own fashion. You can interchange certain pieces but the core of what makes lolita the fashion it is is different. This is like saying punk and emo are the same style because you can wear certain items in both.

>> No.10219966

I love the shorts and I like how the design could easily had "volume" to the frame of a very lean person but it also would be flattering to a heavier person because in both cases it acts as a sudo-petticoat poof to disguise the wear's figure. It's almost more unisex then most Ouji pieces.

I also love how EGL continues to have this influence exchange between designers and it's community; it's always felt stronger then other styles. People have been modifying sweet dresses into Ouji shorts for quite a while which I then think helped this brand piece turn out looking more refined because it's not the first time this has been explored.

Ouji might even be semi-dependent on Lolita fashion, meaning I think the two are so inter-connected that if Lolita suddenly crashed Ouji might not survive on it's own. (by contrast, Dandies would probably continue on and sniff more snuff)

I really don’t say this out loud but...I only like lolita on myself, the models (no matter what race, I don’t care about azns because normal japs look fat and ugly in those clothes too) and some non-famous super good looking people but they actually never wear it. I’ve never seen a good looking lolita in comms or online. As for cgl it seems to me since none of you have a taste it’s all about passing for lolita but never wearing it aesthetically, which is odd since the websites of burando do show wearing advice. Even for a fucking bag. Nobody here dresses properly that’s for sure. I don’t care about ita or what passes for lolita, but I just don’t find any of the people’s tastes here nice. I’m not experienced myself compared to mana and I don’t think since most spergs can’t handle criticism would agree but this is what I think. I think this with normie fashion too actually but lolita will always be “OTT” so it’s more annoying. At the same time this is good because it makes me feel better but I am getting older so no longer am I petty I just want you all to dress better.

Most lolitas don't wear lolita every day, so a "normal" lolita wardrobe is smaller than a normie wardrobe. We also sell a lot, so even though I technically owned more than 100 main-pieces, I don't have more than 20 at a time.

>> No.10220194

I have seen photos of her clothing racks, she has way more than just this.
I see wardrobe posts and they look big? So what is a small, medium and large lolita wardrobe in terms of main pieces then? And if we wear skirts and jsk, how many blouses and then what about shoes? I seem to sometimes see a lot of shoes in wardrobe posts? Or do only people with larger wardrobes do wardrobe posts? I'm guessing 20-30 main pieces would be a medium sized wardrobe.

I think Tyler’s wardrobe looks quite a bit larger than it actually is because she has everything spaced nicely. Not that it's medium but I don't think it's really among the biggest. I'm wondering how many main pieces she has, over 50?
The reason I think her closet is the best I've seen is because of the organization and because unlike many closets, I'm betting all of her things FIT.
I'm betting 90% of lolitas have at least one main piece, still in their closet, that doesn't fit. Many more have several. Guilty as charged, I have 3.

I think 50 is good for large. That is a good goal.
50 main pieces, all must fit and be in good repair.

Do people call, pre-pay, then pick up later in the day? Do they hold things for good customers or if a SS they know who shops frequently requests to hold?

I sell everything that doesn't fit, maybe because I'm not rich. Having lolita clothes that don't fit in my closet just means that I have less space and money for things that do fit. I also think, after wearing it for a while, you should know which brands fit you well and only buy from those brands.

Very good advice but judging from a lot of fits I see, it's not advice that is taken nearly often enough. I'm really sick of seeing so many people squish into clothes. Not a good look, people. Plus it makes many of you really fucking cranky when you are that uncomfortable. Not pleasant at meets.

How exactly does she have a more “realistic approach” to her closet? She owns things that don’t fit properly, has very few bags compared to the amount of dresses, very few blouses compared to the dresses(the ones she does own don’t even suit a lot of her wardrobe), has things that don’t match anything else, etc? Her coords aren’t ever horrendous, but they’re always just middle of the road. I’ve never seen a coord of hers and really been impressed. She’s not a bad lolita, and her wardrobe is admittedly of a decent size main piece wise, but she’s not outstanding in anything. There are girls with about half her wardrobe I’m more impressed by because of how cohesive it is and how good their taste is.

Another thing that isn't brought up, but the clothes are specifically designed for women with a small frame and small bust. While there's plenty of chubby Chinese and Japanese lolitas, once you travel outside of a fairly homogenous zone, you run into people of all various shapes and sizes, and we're not talking adding or subtracting fat levels or height, but whether someone has broad shoulders, wide hips and no bust to speak of, tits for miles and a flat butt.

On top of that, even brands that offer custom sizing aren't styling their items to suit someone with a measurement of say, 105, 80, 96, but they're just scaling up the same pattern to fit that measurement. So while technically, it will fit on their body, it may not be flattering and it will draw attention to areas that make them look larger than they are. Unless the person wearing it is aware of ways to work around this (layering, use of color, accessories etc), they're just going to look chubs in a dress where they may not be boobloafing, but their shoulders might look super-broad because they chose a blouse sleeve style that isn't right for them and they look just stumpy and fat when they could just look chubs but in something that is flattering and nice with the same main piece and different styling.

Stuffed sausage 20-something with a red-tinged ham face in pink Dreamy Baby Room, big bonnet and all (of course the salopette cut because why NOT) its just not a good look. Maybe I need to make a new ’grinds my gears’ thread. This does it. I feel second hand embarrassment at meets in public sometimes. I'm gothic, people know what my shit is, but watch the face of a normie sometime as they try to parse a grown woman being UWU kawaii (sometimes loudly) in a baby dress. Sometimes amusing but definitely never pretty.

You should still be normal weight then more items will fit and some will fit better because of closer to normal proportions. It’s impossible to pattern cut for ‘generic larger person because fatties all gain their weight in different ways/places. Hence why mumus that fall freely from the shoulders are eventually a thing when you get too fat. There’s no hope of tailoring for all the various heinously elephantine protuberances that lurk beneath.

That’s different, Probably no OP or brand blouses will nicely fit over a size US 8 but JSK and some skirts will. At US 10 or even up to about a US 14, women are still able to dress for their body type and they still have at least some semblance of shape and can choose items and cuts that flatter them best and even still have some brand pieces altered to ease the fit. After that, the fat reigns supreme as Blubber Queen of Blob City though, even in a custom made dress. Examples: Dollbe and those enormous and ill-fitting sacks that Haenuli made in 5XL.

It also doesn't help that there's a plethora of bad advice floating out there.

Wear a sports bra! Go braless! This is how you end up with tits sitting at the waistband. Please wear a proper bra. Get a minimizer if you don't need a binder to fit decently into the dress. If you wear a binder, consider coording with a bolero or cardigan, it's not a good fit or look.

What cuts and styles work on one person is going to differ from another. What works for a lolita plus size 8-12 is probably not going to work for someone who is 28w. I think at that point, you're going to need more structure, boning and support in the bodices plus bodice design choices that aren't done in lolita. The simple solution is to put shirring in it and you end up with floating cow tits.

There’s been no evidence that going braless leads to saggy titties. In fact, the only study ever performed on it showed the opposite: women who wore them had saggier titties, presumably because the supporting ligaments were weakened.

>> No.10222463

Going braless normally has nothing to do with not having proper support in a lolita garment that is cut for a B cup at most. The fullest part of the bust is high up. If you've got DD's or F-cups there's no way going braless will help your tits sit at or near the proper area as designed. They're going to sit at the waistband. Tell me this looks good and I will burn every bra I own.

If you want to go braless in your normie fashion, please do so. But wear proper support in lolita or you're going to look like your tits are consuming the whole bodice.

The secret with a binder is still to swoop and scoop then redistribute above the higher waistline of those kinds of raised waisted cuts, not let the flesh just squash out and to the sides. And avoid actual empire cuts in lolita like the plague if you are over a size 10 with a band size over 32 and cup size over c, PERIOD. Finding a just waist cut with full back shirring (sometimes called half-shirring?) is often the best cut of all for a plus size, again meaning US size 10 and up wearing woven clothes . A minimizer bra will only work if there’s room above the waist for boobs to swell.
Another 2 big mistakes people make is 1. Reading the sizing, those are the garment measurements, your body measurements should be 2-4 cm smaller than those numbers at least. And 2. Assuming they are a smaller size than they actually are because when not in lolita, they usually wear cheap stretchy knit clothes in sizes S-M-L. Which have been vanity sized to begin with.

Goals, I wish I could let it all hang out like that. I probably have going on three fully stuffed racks now, and need a bigger apartment. I could stage a nest photo I guess, but I don't have rails near the ceiling to hang a bunch of stuff all around.
My lolita wardrobe takes up a rack in my room, all stuff I plan to wear during the coming weeks, and is also stored two rows deep in the build in closet, and then the off season items are stored in suitcases and big plastic drawers under the bed, with stuff inside that sucks up humidity, and I go through everything at least ever three months to see it's all still stored safely.

This takes me back to the old shojo beat issues. They used to have one page of street snaps from Japan with j fash, and on the last page they had american girls trying to emulate j fash without having access to the clothes, and with their obese, humongous tits and their corsets and adding in some edgy sexy stuff that was completely out of place, they always looked a lot more like saloon prostitutes than lolitas.

Depends on the empire waist.

Empire waists are actually recommended for some body types:
- Apples, hiding the waist is ideal and your arms and legs are naturally thin.
- Rectangles - adds more shape, which is why it's a popular cut in lolita coming out of Japan and China.

Of course an apple that is quite pronounced (very overweight or obese) will look pregnant and it won't be flattering at all because of the bust. But if a cut that sits closer to your waist makes your waist look wide, hiding it and going a bit higher may be an option, especially in something flowy and a-line and your limbs are just small and thin. You're going to see that.

On the other hand, if you carry a bit of chub in your limbs and you depend on a slender waist to look thin, an empire is the worst choice. The pear shape is the most common body shape. It wouldn't work on a pear, unless she was pretty thin.

That advice for empire waists is ok for normie clothes because their empire waist falls straight down, in lolita ours doesn’t. It’s ok for slimmer girls in lolita as well to disguise apple or rectangle but it’s rareky ok for boobs of any size regardless of weight because there’s just no bust room.
Since we usually use a petticoat to widen everything from below the waist to knee very big, I still stand by just waist or only slightly elevated waist making the torso look best (including waist looking smaller) for anyone over size 8 or so to look their best. Tall slim girls with small bust can sometimes wear empire well with an underskirt, I’ve seen this work and avoid the long torso problems of raised waist jsk too.

>> No.10222510

I also think it can be okay in a-line cuts without a lot of volume, for example, Cosmic by AP or anything with a very similar cut. There's just a light flare and a bit of petticoat, but you're not adding too much additional mass.

I found I looked pretty bad in cupcake empire waists, but a-line and even some trapeze cuts looked pretty great. I was also about a size 8-10 and at a healthy weight for my height at that time. I gained a bunch and those cuts don't work at all alone now. But I will coordinate them with cardigans or longer boleros or anything to add visual length and it's acceptable, I suppose. The just waist cut does look best on me now because this is the body I have until the weight comes off.. At that time though, just waist made me look about 15-20lbs heavier depending on the dress, where it's the opposite now.

Honestly, I think it's up to everyone to look at advice, but not be afraid to try something. Also what works on one person won't work for another, even at a similar size and general shape. Sometimes it takes seeing photos to get a feel of whether or not it suits you. But then again, not everyone (I'd say most people don't) have that eye and honesty with themselves or thick enough skin to take harsh concrit into consideration. Which is another reason why so many people don't wear things well.

i honestly don't think that's true, i think we just notice unattractive people more in lolita because
a) looking good is a pretty important part of the fashion so people stick out when they don't,

c) a lot of normies are just so, well, normie that you just don't notice them at all

But in all honesty, good for you. To me it just sounds like your idea of the fashion or 'taste' doesn't mesh with what's popular in lolita at the moment, and to a lot of the people you're criticising, you may not come off as aesthetically pleasing or 'lolita' yourself.

If we all followed what was popular we'd end up no better than ap cookie cutter sweet lolitas or tumblrinas dressing up 'cause everyone else is. Lolita, as many other alt fashions are, is a way to break the mold and wear what makes you happy, and imo all these people screeching 'It's just clothes' are missing the point, and devaluing what lolita means to a lot of people, be it self expression, escapism, or just exploring other aspects of their personality.
Wear it for yourself and only yourself, if you don't like how others wear it that's your problem and vice versa.

I think it's because of lack of general makeup skills to begin with. I wish a western lolita YouTuber would deconstruct the Asian lolita makeup tutorials and adapt them for western features. I already have big round eyes, if I do dolly eye Asian makeup, the effect is terrifying. But I can use the same colors and sparkle with different technique and differently shaped lashes and it has a very good effect. Ditto for contouring, most western women don't have a flatter asian nose and we usually need a slightly different blush placement due to a different face shape as well.

>> No.10222785

I was thinking of doing this. I want to start making youtube videos for lolita that are more informative, rather than just kawaii fluff about ~confidence in lolita~ Adapting lolita makeup tutorials for western faces is one thing on my list. I personally have issues because I wear glasses, I have hooded and deep-set eyes, so anything I do in the eye area immediately becomes lost in photos. So I've learned to amp it up in a way that still looks cute but not overdone.

I find a lot of people go very light, so light and minimal, following Asian tutorials that the color gets completely lost in photos. Others go the entire opposite, completely into the realm of American Instagram makeup, or worse, drag, and it can look really garish. I'd probably also touch on techniques for aging skin because a lot of makeup tutorials just aren't going to work when those tiny fine lines are starting to show up and you need to pick your products and application routines differently.

Typically, it's more of an issue with cotton releases, but also with some chiffon. I find chiffon in general has less of this problem in general because it drapes rather than has the same puffy/fullness of cotton. But bodice detailing can help. If it's princess seams alone you're drawing a clear visual line between boobs and skirt. But if there's something to draw the eye down further, like a scooped or heart neckline, bow detailing, at the top or waist, V-panels, pintucks, lace, buttons, etc that can work too. I find bib detail or just princess seams alone just look bad, especially if there's high contrast in the princess seam and the fabric.

Man, when I was younger (and heavier) I never really thought about how passive aggressive answering like this could be. I mean, I was 5 ft 3 with a long torso and maybe ~170+pounds, that's technically obese, most of my stuff was homemade and custom off taobao/indies. If I could find clothes that work for my officially obese chonk self then surely someone just "a bit" taller and heavier should be able to find ways to make it work, surely it can't be that much harder for them than it was for myself, right?

Now that I've realise exactly how big these people really are compared to me, and also realised that apparently being able to sew a wearable apparel is apparently a lost skill in this day and age, I'd have totally gone with telling them how difficult it will be to find things that fit them. Rather than a cheery "if you can find it", because now I know they won't be able to find it that easily.

It's actually kinda sad, because the doge dress is literally copy pasted meme on a random polka dot background and then pumped out on cheap materials because someone out there simply wanted a meme dress just for laughs.

Someone actually put in effort to draw >>10223518 and write the text out. Then proceeded to cut corners everywhere, like fucking up the text by breaking up words, the colors are flat and the shading is barely there, all the color schemes kinda suck, and then the stock photo has a wrinkled dress, like are they just lazy or is the fabric really so bad that they can't even steam the wrinkles out or what.

I had the same reaction originally, I mean the pelvis bone is missing completely, two ears are apparently mounted together on the same side (like why), the paw pads are just a bunch of circles with no shape. The eyeballs actually look like jam on white chocolate, like it looks like they drew the iris as a seperate bump on top of the whites instead of it being inside the eyeball, and the fur looks downright flat.

But I think the art style is simply meant to be cartoony and rough. They just can't seem to leverage it quite right to make an actually nice print out of it and ended up with this mess that's not really cute, not really spooky, not accurate but they sacrificed that accuracy for something that's not even cute, actually -- not really appealing or hitting the mark anywhere.

>> No.10223801

This is why so many flat chested girls embrace the fashion as well. They're incapable of looking sexy normally since they have no feminine curves whatsoever, so this is one of the few ways they can look attractive, and where they can let out their jealousy by teasing actual sexy women with breasts for not fitting into unshirred dresses.

Why would certain animals not suit the fashion? Just tweak the illustration style to match a particular aesthetic.

Nice, vintagey illustrations would look nice on a classic dress, and that's pretty much for any animal. On the flipside do a plush/toy version of any animal for sweet.

It wasn't only about fairy tales though, and early lolita hardly had the sort of prints we have today. The fashion can grow and change, and doesn't have to be limited in themes just because you personally decided fit in.
