Not sure if this is totally unpopular but I'm so, so, so tired of empire-and-above waist dresses being the default with most popular releases, not because I have cow tits or whatever, but because it looks so childish and ageplay-like. I know it may be fighting against the natural progress of the fashion and waists have always been pretty high, but I miss when you could have a new print dress that doesn't look like the shape was modeled after toddler sundresses.

>> No.10386249

I heard that apparently it's meant to make you look like you've got longer legs, which is why it's so popular among japanese brand? But this could just be hearsay, don't take it as fact because I can't remember where I heard it.

I hate empire waist cuts too, and I'm not endowed in the bust area at all.

How's it an unpopular opinion when hating sack/high waisted dresses get spammed in every lolita thread?

>> No.10386312

My opinion: there’s nothing wrong with a dress looking childlike or “ageplay”, and I wish that term wasn’t thrown around everywhere. It’s only ageplay if it’s a fetish, and a lot of “ageplay” designs people complain about are totally innocent. And if it’s about normies being more likely to view it as a fetish, then might as well not wear lolita at all, because it all looks like ageplay to some people anyway. I find it really hypocritical to insist lolita isn’t ageplay only to call any aspect of it that you don’t like ageplay

It upsets me to see jfashion girls on instagram interact with nymphette weirdos. Theres a prominent figure in the "nymphette" community who constantly speaks on the "fashion" like it's legitimate. She tags her stuff with nympet tags and japanese fashion tags. We need to push against these weirdos as much as we can, the jfashion community has no room for that bullshit.

My unpopular opinion is that while keeping fetishes out of the community is nice and all, the absolute obsession with in the last year or so has gotten really old. You aren’t “protecting the community” by constantly talking about it, giving a platform and attention to the people you supposedly want out for the drama and deep diving into every person in the community regardless on whether or not they mind their business. After a certain point it feels like the goal isn’t to keep creeps out, it’s to keep the gossip machine going and it’s only fueling the fetish drama whores who are coming here explicitly because y’all won’t shut up.

Yeah that is pretty obvious. Sorry for going off on you specifically, but I’m getting real tired of the “BUT THE CHILDREN” gang. This is not new, stop acting like it is and don’t pretend like drama whoring about it is making it better (it’s not).

If for example they are like the girl in your post and are being very open about it or they are, our example, using photos of lolitas for porn purposes (which is horrifying and should always be called out) then yeah sure.

But I don’t need a fucking update on everyone who has a bdsm kink in the comm, thanks. It’s unnecessary, causes us to talk about sex way more, shits on people who really are minding their business and boundaries and gives the drama whores exactly what they want. 50% of CoF imploding is less on the mods and more on the circle jerk that’s giving people abusing the platform attention.

Thank you. I really despise that so many lolitas will go out of their way to dig into someone’s personal life and then cry innocence because “oh no!! An actual not vanilla sex life? How terrifying!” No one wants to hear about the dirty, but most of the time people cry ageplay or something they’re shoving words into other people’s mouth. Manners go both way: don’t talk about your personal sex life, don’t dig into others.

I don't have a problem with sweet, but I unironically think that the fashion should be split. As a classic/gothic lolita I feel like I don't have anything in common with most sweet lolitas, so they're boring to talk to at meets. It's also embarrasing to go to facy meets at museums or historical sites with a bunch of girls that look like oversized cupcakes.

People have been obsessed with this for years.

>> No.10386671

Individual people have been obsessed with it and the com as a whole is always a ware of it, but lately it seems to come up in every single thread and community every day. Getting weekly updates on who’s a perv is the topic du jour and frankly it’s becoming annoying.

The lines between classic and sweet are easily blurred. This would get ridiculously nitpicky in the same way that cutting off gothic would get nitpicky with grey are classic coordinates.

Then just split off with your classic lolita friends and go to museums. Not everything has to be done under the umbrella of being a “meetup”, just go hang out with your classic lolita friends.

Oh that’s an unpopular opinion I have had for a while. Lolitas who don’t want to hang out with their whole comm but just a subset of them complaining about how they can’t kick out people or control the comm. There is nothing stopping you from just hanging out with your friends in lolita. Once you learn that everything doesn’t have to be a “meetup” your life gets way better.

The lines look more blurred to sweets than they do to the other styles. I keep seeing sweets calling jewel tone sweet coords "classic" and kuro sweet coords "gothic", but I don't see any the other way around. I'm not saying it's impossible to blur the lines, I'm just saying sweet attracts more idiots.

No actually, that’s just you. I only ever hear ageplay/ddlg comments when I’m with sweet lolitas. We also get harassed much more when there are sweet lolitas in the group.

I don’t hate sweet lolita(s) but I have so little in common with them that it feels weird to get lumped in with them constantly. Sure there’s overlap, but there’s also overlap between lolita and other Jfashions and people have always been more than happy to create separate communities for those. At this point many sweet lolita coords have more in common with fairy kei than with classic or gothic lolita.

I feel this way too. Like, there is generally a very sharp personality contrast between classic/gothic lolitas and sweet lolitas (mainly referring to OTT here). I like and get along with a lot of sweet lolitas, but they tend to be much more extroverted and we just don't share very many interests. I wouldn't say I want the two sides to be entirely split, but I do think OTT sweets tend to get into the fashion for very different reasons compared to classics/gothics.

>> No.10386713

Something that came to mind from the topic at hand, why the hell do people call hanging out with a couple of friends a 'meetup'. It's not.
If you meet in a cafe and you all dress in old school as a theme, it's still not a meet. It's just hanging out with friends.

>> No.10386715

In my community I've noticed that most of the older and more experienced lolitas primarily wear gothic/classic and if they wear sweet it's more like a side-thing. Whereas almost all the underage girls and beginners in the comm wear sweet. Imo, that's more what creates the divide than the substyle itself.

I agree, sweet is the most well known and worn substyle of lolita. You can't kick out the majority.

>> No.10386880

Some sweet lolitas think that they are be all end all of fashion and give "concrit" to every substyle, even if they don't know shit about it. And I don't mean criticising itas, but completely fine coords that they somehow try to mold to their standards. The same works the other way too, but I haven't seen it that much. You can see how these substyles differ when some poor sweet lolita puts together a "gothic" coord or the other way around and it looks tragic.

>> No.10386899

You sound new/underage imo. Many people wear multiple substyles, not as if they aren't similar anyway. Do you even have examples of what you mean as far as differences in coording? It's not like sweet is the only style that has sets released.

On the flip side of this, an anon got super aggressive out of nowhere and called me a moron for being sad about VM back when it was closing, insisting that IW solids should be good enough for me. I wouldn't go so far as to say IW is sweet but it's baffling to me that people can't at least see that VM/MM and IW are completely distinguishable brands with different aesthetics. Yes, there are similar designs, ideas get repeated in every substyle. No, that doesn't make them the "exact same dress." Things like material choices, design details, silhouette and tailoring can be subtle but go a long way towards the mature/cute distinction even if it's classic either way.

I guess it doesn't matter to someone who doesn't wear classic but it gets old having sweet lolitas treat your preferences as stupid and try to force things like this just because they personally don't get it.

They seem to think that dressing as they do makes them better and more sophisticated than other people.

When travelling home from my last event someone complimented our ‘costumes’ and was actually very nice about it. A bunch of us were wearing crowns and wings and stuff so it’s only natural she assumed we were in costume. After she got back to her seat one girl said, loud enough for the woman to hear, that her coord probably cost more than that woman’s entire wardrobe but you can’t expect yokels to understand fashion.

Nayrt but I’ve been wearing lolita for 8 years and I still detest tea parties and most bonnets. They are clearly based on baby clothing, and if you want to roll with that, fine, but I personally got into lolita because of the lush historic-inspired detailing, not to look like an adult baby.

My guess is that a lot of these girls are attracted to lolita because it sets them apart from their normie peers. But then once they’re surrounded by other lolitas, wearing lolita isn’t special anymore and they need something else to differentiate themselves. The vast majority of lolitas are female so an easy way to stand out is to be non-female. It’s even easier than wearing alt fashion, since literally all you have to do is add they/them to your bio.

Not sure if this counts but I hate when sellers list two dresses together like in the pic. Quit being lazy and maybe separate listings, you will have better luck selling at least one than banking on someone who’s looking for both.

Sweet lolita stands out the most, especially for normies. When you see some random youtuber or "influencer" talk about lolita is almost always sweet.

And these normies(and weirdly some goths) always cry that it's not they style and somehow ignore the biggest secound substyle.

That's really an unpopular opinion, considering that polyester is breathable at all, so instead of cooling yourself down you are cooking in your own sweat.

It likely depends on what blouses you have anon. The AP cotton blouses I have all vary in weight. Cutsews generally are way too thick unfortunately, but they are really durable. But you can't tell what weight the fabric is from a picture online before you buy. The only hint you get is what season it was released.

Personally I've struggled with poly for blouses as I'm really heat sensitive being acclimated to Northern climates. Saying you live in a hot climate just means your body has adjusted to different temps and doesn't sweat when others would.

That's because sweet lolita looks the most different than other styles known to people outside the fashion.

A normie is going to connect most classic lolita looks to historical wear. And they're going to connect gothic lolita to normal goth style. I've watched It's Black Friday's videos before, and she's aware of gothic lolita, she's bought gothic "lolita" dresses in the past.

> Clothing for girls was, for a long time, just adult dresses but shorter or smaller, nothing else

This isn't true at all, while there are some similarities, young girls clothing had many differences from adult clothing. Not even mentioning the differences between how children styled their hair. The closer we get to the late victorian/edwardian era, children and adult clothing got more different. And dress shapes changed a lot during the many decades of the victorian era. Children also didn't wear corsets or shapewear, those structural garments are essential for historical fashion.


>The practice of dressing children in adult styles gradually declined during thc second half of the 19th century. Boys benefited from more convenient and comfortable clothes earlier than girls, who had to wait until the late 1880s before enjoying clothes as casy as their grandmothers' had been or which began to resemble boys' styles rather than women's, although there was a considerable current of feeling against squeezing girls into corsets during the 1860s.

Just say lolita takes some inspiration from historical clothing. You don't have to be specific. Especially when even classic is so far away from direct historical influence and blends together multiple different eras into one outfit, most historical fashion enthusiasts have no interest in lolita.

Also, they have far less decoration than adult dresses.

Unpopular opinion because no one will admit it out loud but I post online for the attention. I do a lot of behind the scenes work in my career that often doesn’t get acknowledged because I’m just a numbers cruncher/field observation specialist. I don’t ever post my face since I can’t associate my work with my side hobby but I have to say, it feels good and I wish people didn’t look down on others about it.

Physical flop makes the ugliest shit, Kuniko is only popular mostly because she started Meta.
Her work after Meta is mostly ugly frumpy dresses worn by fatties.

>> No.10391098


Meta was known for having ugly frumpy dresses for fatties too though.

Her new stuff veers between nice but not really sweet lolita enough for me to tacky normie tier muumuus. I like a lot of it aesthetically but wouldn't buy or wear it, if that makes sense.

>> No.10391101

Possibly not an unpopular opinion, but Fanny just doesn't have the same appeal anymore. She used to have great coords on Tumblr, but her coords after just don't have the same quality or spark on her instagram. She doesn't suit Moitie either, the photos with the other models always look better.

>> No.10391105


Meta's frumpy was a good kind of frump, Physical Flop's frumpy is like 60 year old obese grandma frumpy. Especially with the ugly muumuus.
The only thing I liked was the nurse set, but even then the construction looked subpar so I didn't get it in the end.

I really dislike enamel pins. I feel like they're just a money suck, they seem really cheap individually but they add up super quickly when you buy dozens, all for such a minor accessory, especially when you're expected to wear several at a time. I cringe when I see art I like and they sell a bunch of pins and no other wearable items. I would rather have a shirt, patches, earrings, anything except those stupid pins.

People buy their main pieces in an attempt to win Best Dressed at the event and then try to sell them after. It’s hilariously transparent.

i like enamel pins as a small thing to give to someone else, but they DO add up really quickly and you need a ton of them before they become visually relevant to what you're wearing.

I don't even like Fanny but I've never understood this "she doesn't fit Moitie11!!" Argument. It's just clothing. What does someone who suits moitie has to look like anyway?

>> No.10391550

What they mean by fitting moitie is having the traditional gothic lolita styling. Black hair, bangs and edgier/darker makeup than usually found it lolita.

>> No.10391562

They are just angry that the brand met her and wanted her to model. She is a fan of the brand and his music, even if she doesn’t normally style herself that way. People don’t get angry at other brands using different models like this

Yeah no, she doesn't look that great.
She'd probably fit better modelling for VM or JetJ.

I think she looks good, but definitely more waifish Victorian dying from consumption than typical Moitie. Still feels appropriately goth, just a little different

>waifish Victorian dying from consumption

I mean, she’s thin, but not as thin as the average fashion model. Do you hate skinny girls that much?

>> No.10391606

Nah, I meant more the combo of adding gothic makeup and styling to her very classic look than a commentary on her size. Her eye makeup has been very edgy sickly chic lately, especially for Moitie shoots. It’s not that deep.

>> No.10391681

No one is inherently suited for gothic, but you can kind of tell she doesn’t wear anything similar daily. I think most people have trouble with this choice because there’s a lot of gothic lolitas who wear mostly Moitie and would suit the brand image better. Just liking a brand isn’t the same as actually coording it and being able to adjust your hair and makeup for it.

>> No.10391686

Have you considered that maybe that’s what MMM wanted? I mean, using a non standard model with a simpler style could be a way to show how you don’t need to be “extra gothic full mode 24/7” to wear the brand. Plus, I think the brand itself has the final word on a shooting so if they think Fannie look okay and can be a good example of mmm, what’s the problem?

>> No.10391688

I think they styled her. Honestly they should've let her style herself, it would've looked way better.

>> No.10391694

>Have you considered that maybe that’s what MMM wanted?
Yeah I have, but I still don't think it was a good decision. Moitie after revival have made some really questionable decisions, it's not like you can't criticise them. Moitie is already very easy to style casually compared to other gothic brands.
