I bought a bodyline blouse nwt from a LM seller and the neckline is so bizarre and there are these weird things on the arms of the sleeves.

It was cheap so not a big loss but I could have gotten something better for the price I paid.

I got a knit camisole but it looks terrible on me without a minimizer bra and shape wear. I don’t even have large breasts- I wear a B-cup just fine, but sometimes lolita clothes make me feel like I’m super busty

I bought an old school Meta blazer that the seller said was black, but it turned out to be that weird blue-black that looks navy under lights and black only in dim lighting.

I have a relatively small bust size but large cup size, and it's so hard to find lolita clothes that look good over thot tiddies. I wish I could get a breast reduction, but it wouldn't be covered by insurance because it'd be an elective procedure, so that's out of the question.

I like this thread idea. Kind of like a "I wasn't sure but now I'm so happy I actually bought this" thread? I have a lot of those items.

I spent like $20 on a Charmmy Kitty Crown from Btssb. I don't even like Btssb. It was purely impulse when it showed up on CC because I like crowns a lot. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I get it (still stuck in Japan from April). Either cover it in rhinestones or sell it at a swap meet...?

My brain does this dumb shit where instead of regretting my purchases I feel bad for not suiting them better. Like instead of "I wish I hadn't bought this because I'm too tall for it; I'll sell it" I'll be thinking "I wish I were shorter so I could fit into this awesome purchase better; I'll put this aside for later". Wtf I'm not going to get shorter anytime soon

I circumvented this by going to a regular doctor and having him document shoulder pain and trouble sleeping (stomach sleeper).

Your underbust, cup size, and bust measurement are all related and are equally important in the fit of clothes.

Its semi autism but I am really not liking their polyster fabric. I even prefer their printed chiffon pieces to this. I don't like the texture, it has a sort of diagonal line weave to the fabric. The print is slightly blurrier to a printed cotton.
Even though they made the bust very accommodating they didn't think to provide enough length to the straps so it still fits weird and tightly if you are a larger bust. And I'm saying this as someone well within the provided measurements (I'm 100cm) the written max measurement was almost 130cm.
Everything about new AP releases feel like they are cutting more and more corners. Cheap material, no more inner tulle, non-double sided waist ties. Also minor nitpick but what ever happened to providing the small printed fabric square? The last time I got one was with marine kingdom.

Not mine but good comparison video for anyone interested https://youtu.be/MvoG_Ks3jY4

>> No.10408492

Okay, I agree with you anon. Like I said, I was just curious. I don't like polyester unless it is used for a structural reason (ruffles, overlays, etc). I didn't even know the waist ties weren't double sided anymore? It's just one piece of fabric?
The last dress I bought directly from AP was Magic Princess and I was sad it didn't have the built-in tulle (not that you wouldn't need a petticoat, it just adds a little extra). I'm sorry your purchase hasn't been what you wanted it to be. I wish AP would scale back on releases and put quality back into them.

Oh sorry if I sounded aggressive! Just mini ranting about AP. I agree on scaling back, AP really has become a "fast fashion of lolita". If you look into previous years they never had this type of output.

I miss the structure of cotton and the tulle. The new poly stuff looks so sad and droopy. Marine Kingdom btw has an inner tulle layer. I didnt expect that Magic Princess wouldnt! Isnt that release cotton thankfully though?

>> No.10408511

Yes! The new polyester stuff looks sad and droopy like you said. I'm actually kind of glad I missed out on Ice Cream Parlor because I probably wouldn't have liked it. The print would have been phenomenal on cotton.

Magic Princess was cotton thankfully. It was also a glitter print. I'm sad that glitter prints seem forever lost now and replaced with that 'all over' glittery polyester fabric. Just feels like a cop out.

This is my issue too, it just feels like the designs and materials are getting cheaper and have been mostly forgettable save for a couple. I don't always mind the chiffon style polyester dresses as much provided they're designed nicely, however the new release horoscope carnival looks cheap to me in a few areas of design.

Toy doll box is cotton too and also has glitter on the print, but that doesn't have the built in petti layer either, that release was 2018. Magic princess was 2016 iirc, there was still a fair few cotton releases but many didn't have a built in petti layer either.

Buying a replica bag is pretty cringe. Especially if it's something recognizable like Horror Bat. If you don't like the quality just don't buy it. But buying it as a replica just because it's cheaper is dumb. That's like those people who buy knock off Coach bags because they still want the "look."

The one I got was first re-release so Im curious of further MTOs fared

I think this reduction in quality is due the lack of price increase, which means due to inflation the price of the dress is actually going down. So for a cheaper price you get poorer quality. I own a lot of older dresses but I also own new ones and the quality of the old ones is better, but they’re starting to show their age and the prints are fading and it’sdefinitely noticeable. I would not mind paying an extra 60 or $100 to have a brand new dress with the quality of one of the older releases. If I’m spending $300, I might as well spend 400 to get something that’s really really good

This wallet. tbf I don't really like Marie that much but the style was cute so I gave in.
Even though I made an effort to take good care of it, the image and corners got worn out really fast, and it dented/scratched easily (just like the purses)
I'm surprised it hasn't peeled yet... Also gonna avoid getting things with pearls attracted because they're so delicate and come loose kinda easily.
This! I hate it since AP makes the cutest bags but they just don't hold up for very long. They peel so bad, I've stopped buying them. Kind of have the same attitude with the jewelry, but it holds up a little bit better.

I thought it was really cute but in person it looks like it was taken from a sexy maid costume or some shit. The fabric just sucks and lays weird on my chest. I wish I would have gotten a normal Peterpan blouse. Not worth the 40 dollars I paid, like at all.

>> No.10427149

They still do cotton mtos for the same price though. The actual reason for the quality reduction is Chinese lolitas. They want the poly cause they don't have a lot of closet space and poly takes up less room than cotton. It sucks because cotton is just so much better than poly.

I bought some random putomayo cutsew. Imagine image related, but with a sliver print (which was crisp and really nice). It was cute, however the lace on it was this horrible metallic lace that is scratchy as fuck and has no stretch at all and cuts off the circulation on my arms. i don't really know what to do with the shirt and now i'm stuck with it unless anybody has some ideas as to how i can re-purpose it, because I don't recommend that shirt to anybody because of the lace.

Ivory is one of the most difficult colors to coordinate. There are so many shades that matching accessories from the print series are a must. I always must use secondary colors to make ivory outfits work.

Just giving some ideas to help out. Ivory traditionally goes with white, and you can mix small doses of other light natural colours in (ecru, peach, etc).

Additionally, be careful mixing brand and taobao ivory. Half the taobao brands use light yellow as "ivory" and the brands use a beige-leaning ivory as ivory, which means they won't match. You can still add the yellow as an small dose accent, but not use it as a 'matching' colour.

i thought mixing ivory and white was a huge no-no in lolita? idk i see people sperg about it pretty often

>> No.10469179

It’s because a lot of people do it by accident, or out of laziness i.e. pretending they’re the same colour. Also it’s mostly sweets who do this, whereas mixing ivory and white is more of a classic look. If it’s done intentionally, and balanced right, it looks beautiful. I wouldn’t recommend it for a newbie.

It kinda stings when I see the money withdrawn from my account, but then again I'm jaded to the current market.

Inside of lolita rules, the big no-no is mixing UP ivory and white as if they were the same colour, not "mixing" ivory and white in one coord.

You have to think of ivory as its own seperate colour, it's a very light beige that's nowhere close to being white at all. So an ivory x white coord works the same as a pink x white coord or a sax x white coord, it's a two-colour coord that you have to balance, it's not a one-coolour "shirololita".

Ivory is simply not white, if you can keep in mind it's a different colour altogether then it's a lot easier to wrap your head around coording with it.

that sucks, these empire waist dresses really do take a certain body type to pull off though. i'm way too short to wear a lot of the long, elegant pieces that i like.

i think as long as you don't pair it with ugly storenvy accessories, it won't look pastel goth. there are some good examples out there of people layering the OP with aprons/corsets or underskirts to help pull more black into it and style it in a more gothic way. i don't endorse this girl's tights, but the apron helps balance the whole look and ofc de-sacks (neuters?) the sack dress.
