The crossing straps attach to the waistband, yes. Typically, they have buttons on the inside of the waistband, and button holes on the shoulder straps, so you can put it on more easily. As for the bow, use this video:

This is how lolita waist ties are tied, but the apron bows are done the same way, with more length/wider fabric to get that shape.

>>7285513 here. I have the cat one on the far left. The only thing catlike about this is the headband. The socks are nice and thick and comfortable. Also this dress is kind of weird in that the main dress is white on top with a black skirt and the apron has a black top and a white bottom. The arm holes are also quite big, but maybe this is intentional (you can see how the model's arms don't fill them out at all). The bell on the collar is not detachable so be prepared to jingle everywhere. I bought it second hand so it didn't have an underskirt (the black tulle layer). For Bodyline's maid dresses I would recommend a light petticoat underneath because some of them are quite short. I also like the look of the petticoat adding another layer to the dress.

No, that wouldn't make any sense. I think they meant to say ruched, as in the trim was ruffled fabric and not lace. They obviously don't know much about garment construction if they can't take in a slightly large bodyline uniform.

Friend bought the bunny one it was pretty cute irl. I bought the cat one and it's one of the most popular designs I think. I have a problem with the sleeves since they keep falling down on me but i found if you adjust them and shorten from the back it'd be fine. Though I am 5"2? There's a tendency that since the bell isn't detachable the button will scratch the paint off the bell. Also it's best to reinforce the buttons when you buy them since I've lost some in the wash or at cons. It comes with 2 extra buttons that are attached to the inner tag though! The socks that come with it are fine and also jingle. Though I had a problem where one of the socks was tighter than the other. Best to wear a nice fluffy petticoat with it in my opinion. This maid outfit is also great for middle heavy girls to hide their bellies :P

All of j-lists clothing items(other than shirts) are overpriced costume wear that's cheap taobao quality. as seen in the pic of the meido here >>7289076
I also don't like them as a company (using 4chan to force memes and make their shitty t-shirts) and their shipping is really shitty.

Anyways, when buying a meido you really have to think about why you want one. Do you want to look like a slutty, cute animu or someone working in a maid cafe. Do you want to wear it often, or only once in a long long while.

Personally I have a lot of meido some from cheaper sites bodyline and joybank and one really fancy one from milky ange. While I simply love the look for cons, my boyfriend is also into maids, but I would never wear my milky ange for that kind of thing, just like I'd never wear one that I use for fetish purposes to a con or out and about.

I really like this one quite a bit. The fabric is a bit costume-y feeling, probably polyester blend but it is comfortable. I do wear an underskirt with it most of the time, but I feel like it looks better like that anyways. It also looks fairly cute without the apron as well.

I don't understand the point of this.
Maid cafes work in Japan because for some reason there are a lot of people that love them. They open because the market is there.

Having a maid cafe in a western country just seems like group masturbation. That is to say, these girls just want to be "super kawaii desu" maids and so open a maid cafe to live out their dreams without considering the customer base or whether that even exists. Sure, it might work out by some stroke of luck, but regardless of its profit margin it was a really unsafe gamble to take by opening it in the first place.

Basically I wouldn't trust a bunch of weebs with my money.

The blonde one is Abi/Abipop, a girl with an aidoru themed channel and a vlogging channel. She's cute, a bit of a weeb, but she has a job, not counting the maid one, so she uses her own money for her hobbies and whatnot so she's responsible. Not really a lot of drama around her.

The one with the pink uniform and black hair is Kelsey/KimonoTime. She's had a dancing channel for like three or four years, I think. She's really into harajuku fashion at the moment and has some really cute coords. Again, not really any drama and a cute girl.

I have pic related in this exact color from bodyline and I think it actually looks better in real life than it does on this picture. It's a soft polyester (obviously not as nice as cotton but it's not bad either) and decent construction. It's hard to put on, though (buttons are decorative, you only have those annoying zippers on the side that don't open all the way... a back zipper would've been better), and is a bit short on me overall (but, hey, I'm 5'7").

I have no idea how it fits or how it looks on me since my ED won't let me but in the hanger it looks nice.

It really isn't. In Japan, maids are cute and not related to sex at all. In the west it's just like school girl porn stars = sex, sex, sex.

So no western would understand the appeal of a maid café with cute girls being cute.

I'm just not sure why exactly nobody has ever made a maid cafe that isn't a huge weeaboo hellhole. I mean, it can't be too hard to just fucking put cute uniforms in regular workers of a nicely decorated café, can it?

It must be the same fucking reason why our architecture and fashion has decayed so much. No more attention is paid to pretty things and details. Shit must be useful, practical, useful, useful, useful. Details are expensive and unnecessary. God, why?

>In Japan, maids are cute and not related to sex at all.
Japan is sexually attracted to cute things. A maid café is like Hooters to them.
Maybe they're more respectful about it, but you know they can't sit there for 10 minutes without popping a stiffy.

I am agreeing with you on the last paragraph, though. Americans don't understand cafés as a social thing. We go in to get food and leave as soon as we can.
The French like to sit and talk for about 3 hours, and I guess the Japanese like to look at cute things and take pictures. A maid café wouldn't work here because Americans don't appreciate it the same way, I'll agree there.

Just don't act like the Japanese treat this with innocent allure.

Completely agree. Although with the right staff, food, and proper placement, it could be successful but for different reasons. The otaku here are much more entitled and bitter than the horribly socially awkward ones in Japan. Instead of appreciating the company of cute maids (and maybe fap when they get home), they'd ask for numbers, dates, shift hours and just be creepy in general. Of course, some guys in Japan do that as well but not as much.

Hey anon, please don't let the seagulls get you down. 25 pounds is a huge achievement! I'm working on losing weight as well and I wish I had your progress. Stay strong and stay kawaii!

That was for the 18+ hostess event. They wear actual maid outfits during regular shows (some are the cheap lingerie kind though)

So you guys want a society that beats down the self-esteem of losers so you can have maid cafes that panders to them and pretend they're wanted for the price of an omurice and tea without them bothering the maids much. Alternatively, have losers pay excessive amounts for shitty food for the privilege or being in your cute presence but knowing their place. This is all sorts of fucked.

Don't feel bad, the cunts insulting you probably don't even have boyfriends which is why they're furious

I just want losers to know they're losers and because they're losers they are not entitled to women who are thousands of levels above them. But I'm probably replying to a r9k bitter virgin who purposely misreads things in order to protect himself from the truth (that is: as long as he does not improve himself, he'll keep being denied women and good things in life; and that he has to EARN things).

Seriously, too often men get mad about not being handed down a woman just for existing. This is not exclusive to men either, too many ugly, unkept women think they deserve rich, handsome men. They don't. Work for your shit.

That makes a lot of sense. So, according to wikipedia, 5'4" is around 163 cm? Yeah, now THAT sounds average.

Does anyone know at place that has replicas of the @home cafe maid outfits? Bodyline has a kind of similar one, it's still to different from from the @home cafe ones.

Seconding this. I'm dying for that petticoat with the little hearts dangling from the hem. Shit's cute as fuck.

It's too bad Milky Ange stuff is so ridiculously expensive, 'cause it's really really nice.

If you can find somebody to get it from, Emily is a quite decent brand that's not crazy expensive and has great quality. You're looking at more of a $100 range with their stuff, maybe a little less now that the yen isn't so bad.

The @home ones are actually from the Emily brand I mentioned, very hard to find though. They had them for sale at the Don Quixote in Akiba (which has an @home inside it) last time I was there. Not sure if the ones you can buy from them are identical to the real uniforms or slightly different but they're so similar that it doesn't matter. (Might be a slight difference in button or trim colors etc.)

Do you have a link to a website or something? Google just brings up a bunch of other stuff, not maid uniforms ahah
Or do you really just have to know someone who sells it, like how certain make-up brands are?

Unfortunately it's quite hard to find them outside Japan now. There used to be a US importer but they vanished. Anime Jungle in LA has a few of their costumes and maybe they could order more, or you could use a shopping service/proxy to order I suppose.

Here's their Japanese site. http://shop-emily.com/

Their stuff isn't spectacular but for the money it's not bad, probably similar construction quality to Bodyline but better materials.

LA is like 30 minutes away for me, so I guess I'll go have a look. I might just use a shopping service if I don't find anything I really like though, thanks!

Jungle has very little, only two or three outfits and I don't find them to be particularly attractive one. I think they're on their website actually. Also IIRC they're ridiculously tiny sizes. If you find one on Emily's website you could ask Jungle if they have a way of sourcing it for you, though.

Bummer, but I guess just asking them about that couldn't hurt then, it would be way easier than having to do tons of research to find a reliable/fair shopping service anyway.

Oh, the other thing you could try is Rakuten, but when I checked a minute ago it came up with a million "not available" results. I've seen some stuff on there before that was shippable to the US though, and Japanese costume etc sellers tend to be pretty good.

I checked their site and found info on how much the maids get paid.

>Hourly wage: (870 yen during training) 900 yen to 1450 yen per hour
>Perfect attendance award (1000 yen to 4000 yen)
>Continuous achieve perfect attendance award allowance (3000 yen)
>Long working hours allowance (1000 yen to 5000 yen) [other benefits]
>Live appearance allowance other
>Game play allowance

And you get:
>Uniform locker rent dedicated
>Hair set by a hair make-up of professional staff
>(in the case of work more than 6 hours) Meals provided

And you get to wear that adorable uniform to work. Yo, I'd work their in a heartbeat.

Also, contributing to the maid shops. Found this on the @home site.
