Not the worst. I was 29 when I started, and was also looking for plus-sized advice.

Though, plus-size people really need to write down their weight/size when looking for help. In my case it turns out I was only chubs and still fit into 70% of burando, live in an area where girls were mostly not-fat. Coming onto cgl and finding out hamplanets were doing the HAES body positivity thing while calling themselves "chubby" was a whole different experience.

I'm average weight but seem slim in burgerland, and I work hard to maintain my weight as I get older. Most of my dresses don't have shirring and I want to keep wearing them. It's ridiculous that I feel embarrassed to say that I'm dieting and exercising to stay 130 pounds, which is not even a low weight, because everyone is so quick to call taking care of yourself anorexia. Also I wish people would stop saying "you don't need to exercise!" because honestly everyone does.

My pet peeve is people acting like there's an age cap on lolita. I know people in their 30s and 40s who I always think would look adorable in it. I think it has much more to do with just picking dresses within the fashion that suit you. This is also my normie fashion pet peeve (like you're not "supposed" to wear pretty dresses or skirts after a certain age, you have to dress like a soccer mom or a businesswoman)

I was 30 when I started and was plus-sized. I'll be 40 in a few years. I still enjoy wearing the fashion and I'm fairly active in it.

Honestly, I couldn't have afforded this fashion in my early 20's. It was a lot more expensive back then too. At least in my 30s, I've had good employment. paid of debts, did adult things, and have been able to invest in hobbies. I couldn't afford shit on my part-time minimum wage employment in my 20s. Now I seem to collect hobbies.

Depending on how hard you fall from the genetics tree, it can be pretty easy to appear younger if you take care of yourself and keep up with styling trends. Being a little chubs, but still active and eating healthier foods might help with keeping a baby-face depending on the person. But there's a point where double-chins and features made small by gelatinous chub doesn't look cute. Likewise, I know people in their mid-20's with deep-set forehead wrinkles, thinning lips, and crows feet. Kinda depends on the person.

American food and weight culture is honestly so toxic. There’s the nonsense from the diet industry and shitty trainers, to the normalization of eating pizza, burgers, and fast food more than thrice a week, but I find the hostility you face just for taking care of yourself to maintain a healthy weight completely absurd. I’ve heard horror stories of people’s own friends and family purposely trying to sabotage their progress out of envy and misplaced anger at their own lack of self control. Although considering 70% of people here are overweight or obese and have no idea how to eat healthy (or how to stop eating way too much) it’s also not surprising that being a fatass is completely normalized. The fat acceptance movement and HAES culture certainly aren’t helping, though.

This, also, feeling good about yourself is statistically more likely to result in healthier choices and weight loss.

They really think that eating nothing but bacon is a better idea than just eating less processed food and more fruits and vegetables.

Hard agree, it’s incredible and really no wonder at all that heart disease is the leading killer of Americans. Tragic that people are so blind to how their diet affects their health that they wonder why their doctor is telling them to lose weight when they complain about symptoms of obesity related issues like joint or foot pain, lethargy, fatigue, trouble breathing, etc.. They’re so in denial they think it simply must be some other unrelated medical condition, but if they would listen to their doctor and lose the weight the doctor would have an easier time being able to tell if there really is an underlying condition.
I find these same types of people also become incredibly hostile when you tell them you eat plant based or vegan. They’re all for a carnivore diet or using keto as an excuse to eat copious amounts of bacon and put butter on everything, but god forbid you say you primarily eat vegetables. It’s like all those cartoons where kids decry broccoli as disgusting has convinced the whole nation vegetables are evil and out to get them.

lol. fwiw my start was over six years ago. And I got to 29 because I thought I was fat an ugly at 25 and wouldn't look good in lolita. I honestly thought I only had a few years to look good in lolita before needing to sell off the dresses and then getting back to growing old, but it turns out nobody comes to confiscate my dresses after I turn 30, so here I am still dressing up.

I honestly can't really say much about being fat and into lolita. It turns out I either overestimated my fat or underestimated lolita, I just mostly went with shirred Meta dresses and have never been posted in the ita thread, so I guess I'm not messing up too badly.

This has been debunked several times. It boils down to laziness for not cooking, not learning to plan meals ahead of time when grocery shopping, and overeating so you dont feel satisfied with an otherwise healthy portion of food.

the study doesn't even compare anything directly. of course buying cheap veg and lentils is cheap but that's not what people are eating day to day. a pot roast frozen dinner is cheaper than all the ingredients for the same dinner you have to prep. plus, grocery stores sill operate on the idea of family portions so buying everything to make the dinner for just one or 2 people is a lot of upfront cost. plus when your poor, you want to go with the more appetizing foods you can afford. the choice between cheap plain rice with frozen veg or cheap salty ramen with frozen veg is obvious.

frozen veg is like twice the price as fresh per pound.

>> No.10335102

>>10334852
Frozen vegetables are often more expensive than buying them fresh at most stores.

For instance, at my local Kroger, 1 large head of cauliflower is $2.79. A large head of cauliflower will make about 22 to 26 oz of cauliflower florets. A frozen bag of Kroger brand 24oz cauliflower florets is $4.99.

Now, Kroger brand has started releasing a new line of "Traditional Favorites" frozen vegetables for $1.00 to about $1.69 for 12 oz portions. But calculating it out, you'd get about double the food by buying fresh and freezing it yourself. And a lot of Krogers don't have the "Traditional Favorites" line yet.

I know in my country, schools in recent years offer way more advance placement classes then they use to, and I regularly meet people age 21 who are graduating college. Hell, my cousin just graduated with an interior design degree at 21. Europeans are entirely different too in that their school systems are designed to get people out in the workforce ASAP.

Pet peeve in j-fashion is people complaining how they can't buy a wardrobe, especially when they get catty about it. I have a friend who sounds much like someone earlier in this thread. So much they once said that they wish they could afford nice clothing (referring to j-fash inspired goth shit like Dollskills, not even lolita), but they don't 'get naked for money or have rich parents'. There's a lot of people who really do think if someone young wears nice clothes that it came from a sugar daddy or their parents.

It makes me sad because, say in this person's case, every week they're paying $20 in pizza delivery at a bare minimum, often more, and they do those food delivery services where they send you the monthly box. Point is, they're spending $100+ dollars a month on takeout essentially. $100 dollars a month for 5 meals. I can't point it out without sounding like a dick, and I don't want to do that to them. At the same time, I never eat out really, and I'm like, "Dude... if you stopped eating out, you'd easily have at least $80 a month to spend on clothing. In two years, you could build a huge wardrobe.

I think, well, especially in my country, people's ideas of 'needs' and 'wants' are a little skewed. Technically, all that takeout is a 'want', but since it's food, many interpret it as a 'need' in their mind so it doesn't really even occur to them that it's really just an issue of priorities. If they wanted to, they could buy fashion instead of takeout.

I think people should do what makes them happy. Maybe going to the theater every couple weeks, eating out every week, going to the bar every week... all these little things that add up are people's happiness. There's nothing wrong with it, but maybe they should realize people wearing fancy fashion aren't doing the same things as them.

Same here.

Meanwhile she eats at expensive restaurants several times a month, hoards plushies and figurines and other fandom merchandise, buys geeky t-shirts from the US (we're in Europe and shipping + customs can easily triple the price of a simple shirt) and flies to Japan every other year where she spends her entire budget on food.

Fatty on track to lose weight here! The weird obsession with meat here in America is horrible! I'm not a huge fan of eating lots of meat. When I do it's mostly lean meats like chicken and turkey.
I've had personal trainers tell me that in order to lose weight I need to eat more meat. Which to me just doesnt make sense? But I've had several trainers tell me that meat should be the largest portion on my plate. Its honestly really gross. No one needs to eat that much meat.

Our whole culture is entrenched in it, to the point where people make bacon their entire personality and start making dry heaving noises when you mention tofu exists. I'm not even vegetarian but I definitely eat less meat than most because its so unnecessary.

I've indeed had more luck doing "meat + vege" actually, but going lean protein rather than red meat, as the lean stuff is generally lower in calories. So anon with the chicken, I'd say that's the right track, if you get bored of it then switch to some other lean protein (fish or tofu or whatever).

Couple of advice, one, if your diet variety gets really small, consider adding a multivitamin, or at least monitor yourself to make sure you aren't deficient in something. I had heart arrhythmia due to potassium shortage since chicken and lettuce are essentially a low-potassium diet for people with sick kidneys.

Sort of related, I got chewed out by my doctor for neglecting fat, apparently you need at least a little bit of it. But just some cream in your coffee or a babybel cheese should be fine, no need to pig out on bacon.

The reason protein helps with fat is that it's filling, but doesn't trigger some "hungry" hormones or something, so you can feel full without pigging out. The only problem I have is most times the trainers giving protein advice tend to be men, their TDEE is like ~3000 while mine as 1500, nearly half that. So they'll advocate beef and bacon because they need the high calories from the fat. Meanwhile I'd just get fat. So for girls, I'd advise lean, white meat. Tell your trainers this, at least let them know where they're going wrong with it.

(And then there's keto, but the camp is divided on this so idk)

If you get tired of chicken and turkey, there's seafood and tofu (if you aren't allergic).

Be very careful with nuts, legumes, beans -- go ahead and google how many calories 40g of each nut is. Most of them pack a whopping 500 for just a bare handful.

Sorry, this text got a bit long. Hope everyone can at least find something useful in it.

You NEED protein. It will help with working out/losing weight as well. Meat keeps you satisfied a lot longer and you will eat less. I have to eat meat because my body is terrible at utilizing protein from other sources. I was working out nearly daily and eating mostly veg and suffered hard for it. I was eating veggie proteins, but my body could not use it properly, so my hair started falling out like crazy and I was constantly tired. I'm now completely carnivore atm (using it as an elimination diet to help with discovering intolerances) and I honestly feel amazing for once in my life. So while, yes, I do agree that always eating bacon while eating carbs and other things is a good way to gain weight, there is nothing wrong with eating meat, especially if you are working out. You need protein for so many things, and without it, you will suffer. Meat protein is utilized by the body more completely than veg forms.

Sigh, I already knew it would end up here. Well, I planned to replace the shirring in the straps and the pink threads (dying it with nylon dye) but I never did it in the end. Honestly, it doesn´t look that bad worn but if it bugs you you don´t have to buy it.
If the cut wouldn´t be that bad looking on me I would keep it forever but since I haven´t worn it in years (because of the cut) I thought I should let it go. Just see it as a feeler auction. If someone will buy it it´s gone and if not I´ll keep it. I also accept offers, so where is the problem?

The dress is sealed btw. I used a high quality dye for that because I don´t like bleeding clothes in the rain, like it happens with brand prints sometimes.

Thank you for your interest.
First of all the stains were pretty bad, huge and all over the place. I couldn´t get rid of them and using bleach would have totally ruined it..
To successfully vanish such stains you have to dye the garment a much darker colour, otherwise the stains will still be visible. I´ve had this problem before, no need for repeating it.

However, I thought the purple colour would harmonise much more with the pink than any other colour would. Having only jewel colours as a choice narrowed it down, so I went for this which is rarely seen in Lolita and I like unusal colours like orange, grey and obviously purple.

This. While I understand that a lot of the things mentioned itt are a real issue for many people, none of them apply to lolitas I know. They’re all comfortably middle class and usually have more expensive hobbies besides lolita. None of them work 60 hours per week. They complain about healthy food being too expensive (which isn’t even true in my country unless you’re only buying exotic/out of season) yet only go to Starbucks for coffee. It’s actually really annoying seeing them post that they can’t afford to lose weight one moment and then post about their new lolita or itabag haul the next. I’m pretty sure that if they won the lottery, they’d spend all the money on clothes and fandom stuff and would then go right back to whining that a healthy lifestyle is unattainable.

Honestly this. When I started to build my j-fashion wardrobe I was a student on a budget. My first "real" brand was an Ank Rouge dress for 50€ that was NWT I believe and I did a payment plan for that shit. I was doing a lot of payment plans to really kickstart my wardrobe while at the same time keeping my eyes out for offbrand items that could fit the aesthetic. Buying the physical copies of the magazine my j-fashion style was based on helped me a lot as well, I remember taking pictures of the items I liked and browsing stores like h&m until I found something similar.
Fastforward to now, I have a big cohesive wardrobe of general kawaii j-fashion as well as lolita cause I finally started to wear it more actively last year. I know how to coord and despite having few main pieces, my wardrobe feels like a bottomless pit already. And I'm now finished with uni, don't have to pay my student fees anymore which allows me to actually splurge on brand new ap releases (that I still save up for in advance but hey it works). And of course I now know at this point where I can find the best deals and how to play the wait game of sellers discounting their items on their own.

Oh and all this time I wasn't eating out or going to the movies much or anything of the like. I don't think grabbing cheap lunch while on campus counts as "eating out" much.

this. Also keep in mind they have so few of each individual item that if people were to try them on and not like them, by the time someone ends up actually buying it a huge number of people would have worn that exact one.

Also isn't La foret a tourist trap? It seems like the kind of place that lolita-gawkers would go to

I don't know if it's always true. Boz and IW let me for some reason. I didn't even ask, just admired and they asked me if I wanted to try it on.

it's customary to be escorted out with the staff holding your bag after you pay for stuff. it isn't really a rude gesture at all

why are you so intent on commenting on shit you don't know about

You can't try on blouses or dresses in closet child either.

harajuku generally is a honeypot for tourists who want to gawk, but i honestly haven't seen that at laforet. it's pretty nice, and i think the staff are pretty good about making non customers just uncomfortable enough to scatter after a few min. you also tend to get a lot of limited edition and sales in laforet if you're there at the right time, so no, it's not just a 'tourist trap,' especially if you wanted limited edition colors or series.

As someone who’s lived in JP for years, they don’t let you try on blouses normally. Or bloomers. It’s some heavy entitlement to cry about it after being told no.

This is also true. Every single time I was escorted out and said goodbye to politely. And in tons of non lolita shops too. It’s considered good customer service in Japan.

there's a reason all the blouses have measurements on them.

Oh don't get me wrong, I do agree about the entitlement. Some stores will stick to their policy no matter what. It's best to just take queues from the shopkeeper.

They let me and my friend try on blouses at CC. This was in 2017 at the harajuku store. The staff weren't mean, but they didn't pay attention to us much, which I don't blame them for, they probably get a lot of annoying foreigners. I couldn't imagine getting mad for poor customer service, but even more so for someone getting upset about being kindly escorted out. Karens, man.

They have a paper in their stores nowadays that have in English on them that you cannot try on stuff like blouses and tops.
