>Is Bodyline even relevant anymore Edition

Well anons, what do you think? We're coming closer to the year of our Lord 2022 and Bodyline still honors the man who brought joy and misery upon the scene.

Do you still wear or buy Bodyline pieces? If so, which one? Pic related is happening as we speak, even long after Yan's departure.

Also I just noticed they seem to dish out a lot of their more recent lolita dresses they released a few years ago for only 10$ or even 1$ each. Are they done with lolita?

I liked their socks but it's all been wiped out for aliexpress shit that isn't even wearable with lolita. I think they're done with it and gone back to focusing on sex shop costumes since newbies and fattychans are obsessed with taobao

I still have and wear some of their basics (shoes, blouses and headpieces) which I all purchased secondhand over the years, never bought from them directly because they just never restocked what I wanted.

At this point I honestly don't think they'll restock anything at all, they'll sell whatever they still have in stock for a couple of pennies and will probably stop selling lolita.

You're skinny because you don't have the willpower to gain the weight. Literally anyone can do it so you don't have an excuse.

I ordered some of these, they were too cheap not to. Fuckers sent me an email asking for 5000jpy more because I ordered too many items, which the max was 10 during the sale and I had less.

Yeah it's cheap and there are lolitas out there who will only buy cheap stuff since they're constantly complaining about how expensive the fashion is. Some lolitas just want pieces to fill in their wardrobe with and don't care about quality or want items they can wear a ton without having to care if they get ruined.

I don't think it's just that, I've noticed it sells a lot faster than Taobao. When a store shuts down there is usually an increase in interest and clearly Bodyline isn't going to restock their lolita things anymore so it is a dying "brand".

Cheaplitas relied on either Bodyline or Taobao but Bodyline has a more traditional lolita style, it doesn't look so clolita. So I think there is nostalgia for the old days of Bodyline. Like it makes me think of the really old Princess Peachie videos when her entire wardrobe was just Bodyline and it didn't look too bad. I think it's a lot harder for newbie cheaplitas who instead of having a Bodyline phase are now directed to Devilinspired which in comparison has terrible hiked up prices, all costumey conlita OTT looking things and a huge lack of basics.

I have had both a Bodyline and a Taobao phase and despite Taobao sellers having way more appealing pictures I have had way more busts with Taobao, specially when it comes to recieving things that look absolutely nothing like the image, on top of having had to wait months for them to reach.
It's why I think why Bodyline sellers on LM usually show a real picture of the clothes but Taobao ones tend to use the super photoshopped stock photo as the main one.

I can see that, but

>cheap
>buy cheap stuff
is something that doesn't quite align with the experience I made.

While bodyline certainly isn't close to the average brand piece in terms of market value, some people who have bought my stuff weren't exactly holding back when it comes to splurging on it. Everybody's laughing or screaming at scalpers who are selling bodyline in truckloads for, in cgl's opinion, prices that are way too high, oftentimes above purchasing prices/retail prices. When I put up my stuff for sale though, I was shocked that like 80% of it was sold in literal minutes, mind you while pricing them taking scalper accounts into consideration too. On top of that some of the people who bought from me weren't hesitant to pay the same, if not more, for shipping around the globe than the items are worth either. Means if there are people who will gladly spend 20 bucks and more to get some socks or accessories like simple wristcuffs or bows shipped, prices can't be as much of a deciding factor as it seems. So I wonder if nostalgia or style choice like >>10688145 said are playing into this a lot too.
