Why don't japanese sellers on secondhand sites add measurement to their item listings? Or rather, why is it so uncommon? I mean, it's not like everyone in japan wears the same size, is it.

>> No.10684880

I have a feeling it's kind of like that though. Especially if it has shirring or corset lacing, the majority are close enough to each other in measurements that it isn't really a concern for them and it's just 'free size'.

Is it possible to wash a velveteen piece without damaging it? I've read a few times that people successfully laundered their cotton velveteen dresses on a cool cycle in a washing machine, but would like some extra reassurance or tips on how to make it go well. Should I turn it inside out, use a laundry bag, hang to dry? Taking my dress to a dry cleaners isn't an option for me, sadly, as every single business over here seems set on ruining people's clothes.

>> No.10684896

They have controlled weight from government policies/restrictions on businesses by audit. Of course everyone is "around the same size" with the way they design clothing and the policies combined.

>> No.10684899

??? what?

>> No.10684900

Yeah Japanese clothes from various brands do often have S M and L sizes, but brands like lolita that have so much flexibility in sizing generally fit everyone that isn't Japanese plus sized. And if the item is a sized piece like an M or L from IW or some BABY pieces they do list that.

>> No.10684901

Policies to incentivize companies to keep their employees in a healthy weight range does not mean everyone is the same size. There is still a good bit of variety in the size of different Japanese women. But lolita goes from so huge to so small when it's a shirred piece or whatever that most healthy sized girls in Japan could fit it no problem. Look at Misako. She's not fat or skinny in particular even at her age, just healthy and height and weight proportionate, so she can fit most things and probably doesn't need to worry about measurements. Likewise despite RinRin probably being a larger size than her and much taller, she can still fit most lolita too. Then there's Risa who's a bit smaller and still wears AP no problem if a bit baggy for some cuts.

>> No.10684903

Ntayrt but most (every?) company has mandatory yearly check ups. Companies will get fined for having too many employees that are considered obese or overweight. I'll see if I can find an article about it.

>> No.10684906

It's not an incentive. They literally fine the business. There's a reason why it becomes heavily stigmatized to become overweight and you're going to get bullied from corporate companies.

>> No.10684907

Risa is the example of average Japanese. Misako may be slightly different.

RinRin is literally from the Western Lolita community. There's a reason why she's so large. She went over there to model sometime in the last 6 or so years, but she is Chinese American. I wouldn't base lolita standard sizing on what Japanese culture sizing is, considering they are an international fashion and recognize themselves as such.

>> No.10684909


>> No.10684911

I guess it's a "negative incentive" but whatever you call it, everyone not being obese doesn't make everyone the same clothing size.

I wash my velveteen on low temperature in a laundry bag and it's fine. 90% of lolita is fine in the washing machine as long as you put it on low temperature and throw in colour catchers, I don't know why most lolitas seem so afraid of washing their clothes. The only things I wouldn't put in the washing machine are items with synthetic leather, flocking or just very old and fragile pieces.

Don't rush and buy cheap crap just so you can have a coord in your hands. Take it slow. It took me half a year of collecting pieces to wear my first coord.
There's no way of knowing what will fit if we don't have your measurements, but check lolibrary to see individual dress measurements.155 sounds like you fall in the standard size range so you should be fine with shirred pieces. Even if dresses don't fit though Japanese brand is still worth buying for accessories.

This may be too normie for here but idk where else to ask so.

My friend (emo weeb) lost a lot of his clothing in a fire so I want to get him a few new t-shirts (secondhand is also okay) and I know he really liked pic related. It's easy to find t-shirts that have random Japanese paintings on it but he really liked this because it's the combination of that Japanese wave painting and something from pop culture. Pic related is from Uniqlo but does anyone know other brands I should also check out? Since this Uniqlo collab is from a few years ago it's hard to find now.

>> No.10685286

I think she does a lot of repairs on damaged pieces and resells them for higher prices afterwards. Not as bad as people who buy it to flip since she is putting time into fixing pieces but if you shop JP secondhand sites you're better off just grabbing what you want with SS before she can get it and doing the repairs on your own.

>> No.10685294

Honestly tho. You're a retard. I'm seriously tired of people claiming LM sellers are scalpers because they are selling it for the amount they paid.

You do realize, typically this is the amount they paid overseas as well? Or even on AP Paris or where ever else, right? Literally don't listen to this fucking anon, because half of this dumbshits don't pay attention to what the release price is.

Supply and demand fucking whiner poorfag dumbshits.

>> No.10685299

I actually mostly agree with you. Items being overpriced or just expensive and scalping are different obviously. And if someone is too dumb to know what is and isn't correct retail or that someone is selling for the price they paid that's their problem. If anon wants to get good prices on things though LM is a dumb place to look cause while most prices are far from scalping they're definitely not priced as "deals" either.

If they really care that much there is a browser extension that blocks what were previously considered scalpers but it's old and our concept of what prices are good or not is constantly changing based on trends and desirability anyway so it's a useless tool.

5'8" with long arms here, I feel your pain. Luckily most lolita brands will list the sleeve length, so figure out what length you need. For example I know 60cm is the minimum length that works for me, so I don't buy shorter than that.
In general, bishop sleeves will be forgiving because of the extra "billowing" fabric. Also 3/4 sleeves are a tall girl staple.

does /cgl/ have a general list for online jfashion stores that ships to U.S.? Stores themselves doesn't have to be japanese, just stores that have products that have the vibe to it. Similar to Claries but not cheap and for 10 year olds or shoes like pic related but for adults.

>> No.10685422

Nope, most of cgl uses shopping services to buy direct. it’s usually a markup to have stores ship directly to the usa because foreigner tax. and having stores handle customs/US addresses becomes a mess in my experience.

Just looking for pastel items in general. I want to try Euro or U.S. stores mostly because they're able to fit curvy/masculine shapes. I've bought items from aliexpress and while the waist measurements fit, the hips, thighs, bust and shoulders rarely do. Sometimes I'll find something with the correct bust but small shoulders, or pants that would fit my waist but won't pull up past my thighs. Money isn't an issue.

>> No.10685432

Kuroshiro kawaii might carry some plus sized pastel items, but i think those are from us based brands. Japanese brands don’t tend to make plus sized anything.
Your other option is to buy 2 of the item and alter it to fit you. Or lose weight.

YRU makes shoes for adults like that. Quality can be hit or miss, so look up some reviews beforehand for the exact pair you like (and also wait for them to have a 50% off sale for them, they do 50% off all items like once a month).

Assuming you're looking for more pastel/fairy kei kind of items, these are shops that have a larger size availability:

>Miss Alphabet (clothing and accessories)
>Starlight Deco Dream (clothing and accessories)
>Holley Tea Time (clothing)
>Creamy Pop (t-shirts)
>Ocean in Space (clothing)
>Lumina Love (clothing, makes "inspired" pieces that are basically copies of old designs of Milklim or Listen Flavor)
>Diccha Shop (mostly accessories, does clothing releases sometimes)
>PopxParade (accessories, will do custom items)

The only possible way would be to put a little bit of white mixer in a foundation that is your skin colour. You are playing a bit of a dangerous game since the end result could end up with you looking ashy. Make you get your neck and don't show your arms.

>> No.10685543

You have a lot of options. You could embrace the fact that you don't need to be pale to be goth. You're so goth even your skin is black. I'm not very dark skinned for a black person but I used to joke that with people when I was into mall goth shit in high school. You could also go shironuri levels and just paint your face super white on purpose to the extreme. That way it won't seem like you're insecure about your skin tone or trying to be lighter because of that but that you just want legit ghost shit.

Alternatively use a sunscreen that isn't made for darker skin and you'll look pale and ashy as a ghost immediately with no makeup plus bonus sun protection

no wtf that's not ok. They need to message you before buying if they have to do a hold.

I would assume for the ruching effect. Elastic has greater recoverability than sewing ruching and I suppose it makes it less likely to break the seams when pulling a jsk on/off.

If you tie them a certain way, then the velcro should overlap on the face of your knee and it should hold them up until you sit. At least that's my experience. I imagine taller people lose out on that benefit.

Thanks everyone :) I was just wondering because I wanted to know what Momoko is wearing under the apron. What OP/skirt is she wearing?

>> No.10687200

I have olive skin and what worked for me was layering my make up starting with a pink tinted primer then a green colour corrector, next a pale concealer and finally foundation. If you're not used to make up at all it'll take some getting used to. Finding the right foundation is also a must, you might have to go on a bit of a quest for the perfect one for you. Don't be afraid to try for something close-Ish to your natural tone, if the other make up works right it'll make it look like you actually are pale and didn't just fuck up and buy the wrong shade. I never thought I'd be able to achieve my pale dreams but after perfecting my method I've been receiving compliments on how my skin is like alabaster. Good luck

The thing is i was able to get this shoe style done in real leather last week and paid about 100 extra yuan for it. So they can do it for only this one it seems. which is weird
I’m using superbuy! guess i’ll just stick with this shoe style then

Not Aintaina but as a data point for Sosic Shop which also uses UK/Chinese sizing: I'm a US 7.5, run a little wide at the toe box (for heels I usually try 7.5W first). A size 39 fits me well. Convert to UK and then go up a number is a good rule of thumb

I'm about to soak some secondhand in oxiclean. One is visibly stained, the other is just smelly. Any recs for how long I should soak it? It says 1-6 hours which is a pretty broad range. Both items are very colored. Don't know if I should soak them separately since they are contrasting colors.

how do you all deal with the fear of wearing jfash in public, and the looks/questions/etc? i love wearing the things i like outside but people seeing me in it kills me.

>> No.10689975

frankly, the first 2 times i wore jfashion outside, i had to take a shot to build up the confidence. starting off wearing it with a friend (wearing jfashion or not) instead of completely alone makes for a much easier transition. smiling a lot makes you look less like a nervous weirdo and more like someone confident in their own skin. once you begin getting compliments and questions by people who appreciate the style, it gets easier. you'll realize that most attention and comments are positive.

unlikely. the reason a lot of people go with taobao in the first place is that they need sizes bigger than brand

Wear it out to weeby places like cons or Round 1 first, just to gain confidence. It gets easier as you wear it more often becase your brain gets tricked into thinking it's your normie clothing. Also a lot of people will compliment you, so actively remember those compliments.

Also helps to have friends who dress bizarrely or in alt fashiom that stands out. A friend of mine wears hentai shirts and does nothing to hide the print. You get used to the stares by being next to them, you learn to deflect negativity because you wanna support them, and you remember the compliments more because you're not the one under scrutiny. All of which are needed in lolita

>> No.10690087

To add to this - if you can get away from your home base and be somewhere very public, like busy public transport, city centres, museums - these are great places to be in lolita, because you can essentially say to yourself you’re never ever going to see any of these people again, so who cares what they think? Also one of the blessings of rona is that you can wear a face mask wherever you want and not look weird - this might help you feel less nervous too (I love wearing my mask whenever I’m wearing lolita alone)

Does anyone have experience with removing pit stains/yellowing? I recently got a white cutsew with faint armpit yellowing that wasn't disclosed by the seller. It was fairly cheap so I'm willing to mess around with it, I just want to get those stains out if that's even possible.
The material is a poly/cotton mix.

I've definitely been able to lighten pit stains with baking soda and such. Just google for a recipe, it should work.

>> No.10690326

Seconding the baking soda only I add white vinegar to it, let it sit, then scrub gently with a toothbrush.
Works well on my colors and removes those pesky dark stains but I've never tried it on whites.
For yellowing on whites I use one of those oxiclean gel stain remover sticks.

Why do so many lolitas seem to have chronic illnesses? Is it some kind of trend for teens to fake illnesses these days? Does the fashion just attracted people who are hyperaware of living every day like it's their last?

I actually also have a chronic illness (and not a very flattering one, so I tend not to share it) but I've never been in a community like this where it's so prevalent. Nearly all of my normie friends my age are in perfect health.

>> No.10690509

I agree. I also have a chronic illness that I don’t talk about publicly. I don’t like to talk about it because It’s just part of my life, it’s not something that I need to make part of my personality.
And that’s what it is, lolitas with no personality using their chronic illness as their “thing”.
I’m not saying they are faking it, I just don’t know why they insist on talking about it so much. This is a fashion community, I don’t need to know your laundry list of ailments or why it supposedly gives you a free pass to dress poorly.

>> No.10690512

Because love lolita and aristocrat can hide medical devices and/or make you feel pretty.

>> No.10690518

Tbh I just think the kind of people that won't shut the fuck up about their chronic illnesses in tandem with the fashion just want attention/asspats and are drawn to lolita because it's attention grabbing.
I also have a chronic illness and massive very visible scars because of surgeries and never mention it unless asked since it's exhausting enough talking to my doctors, senpai, friends who constantly ask questions. I'm not ashamed of being chronically ill but it's not fucking fun and I'm not so devoid of personality that I need to make my diseases into some sort of bullshit quirk.

Good question
I'm not exactly chronically ill myself but I do have mental health issues which also lots of lolitas seem to have.
I prefer not to talk about it publicly though, mostly because I feel like people might view me differently. I don't want anyone to judge me, nor do I want anyone to pity me or give me asspats for being so "brave" by not giving into the urge to off myself.

nta but lolita is pretty notorious for having prints that bleed and you have to be careful with some lace and cotton so it doesn't melt/shrink
it's just good practice to be gentle with more expensive items of clothing in general since they tend to be more delicate than cheaper clothing.
