I feel like once you get into the territory of needing proper stays/corsets to get the proper look for a dress, you've veered out of lolita and into historybounding. A lot of these dresses would have the same look as wearing lolita without a bra if you didn't have period-accurate undergarments, but if you wear classic lolita with 21st century underwear it looks fine because while it's inspired by historical garments, the dresses are cut to have a silhouette that works with the natural body.

Do they use actual steel boning in their corsets or are they more fashion corsets with plastic boning? If they're real steel boned I have to get my hands on one

It's plastic. The bodice fabric they use is way too delicate for any actual reduction.

>> No.10625720

Then it's still not quite what I'm talking about. It's not the look of the corset, it's the body shaping aspect. If you don't wear stays with a georgian era dress, your body will pull the dress oddly, because the dress is literally made for an altered human shape. If the corset doesn't have metal boning, it isn't meant to make the body a different shape, it's just to give the bodice some structure to sit properly on top of a natural human shape. That's where I think the line is; modern clothing, including lolita, is meant to sit on a natural form with a bra on, most historical garments that lolita takes inspiration from are meant to be worn with body altering underwear.

Lolita has taken influences from Rococo and Victorian* but also 20s style, 50s and 60s style, even 80s fashion.

*this is a useless term because the victorian era spanned several decades and contained various trends that don't look similar at all

>lolita, is meant to sit on a natural form with a bra on

On the contrary, the majority of Japanese lolitas are flat and normally the bodice is relatively fit. I mean, sure it's maybe not meant to be that but normally looks the same as being as flat as a washboard with a corset on.

This is incorrect. Afaik, most corsets from that era were made of whale baleen and most likely padded to a certain extent. Abilletage definitely makes lolita coordinates with the steel boned corsets they make, and not all historical corsets are meant to make the body an entirely different shape, some are essentially like wearing bras.

For me, I think it depends how many "historical" elements there are vs. "lolita" elements. Usually history based stuff goes for realism of the period and historical accuracy, but lolita veers into fantasy and what looks nice more often. Corsets would normally never be worn overtop of garments historically, skirt lengths would be much longer, sewing methods and fabrics are very specific, and usually they all come from the same period.

As long as there are enough lolita elements mixed in, it counts as lolita to me. Styling counts as well. I think if >>10625612
went for a more modern looking hairstyle and different accessories it would be a more agreeable coordinate for many.

For me a lot of the dresses posted itt aren't lolita at all. I also wouldn't consider them historical clothing or anything like that. I'd just say they're pretty costumes. (Or in the case of a couple posts, EGA, maid costume, otome, etc.) I think there's a combination of factors that make something lolita.

long skirts have to at least show the ankle and lower shin, short skirts have to at least cover your ass

requires a petti and/or have a lot more volume than most modern skirts (like AP's sallos or Meta's mini skirts, which still have a distinctive poofy skirt)

no cleavage, even blouse-less coords are kept tasteful, preference for stockings vs pantyhose or other sexier types of socks

>theme, style, details, etc.
rockabilly clothes, a historical '50s dress, or some other pre-existing fashion item might be styled into a lolita coord, but I wouldn't call that article of clothing lolita. A lot of western brands also teeter on the edge, because they lack the quality and details like lace that help define the fashion

>is it clothes?
costumes aren't lolita. clown shoes aren't lolita. sceptres aren't lolita. crowns and halos aren't lolita. this is a fashion that is meant to be worn as regular clothes, not a costume, so something like this >>10625766 isn't it.

>>10625664from historical fashion
This exactly. Styles like regular gothic fashions and hime-kei often take similar elements from historical fashion as lolita, mainly bodice and sleeve design, but there's a distinct seperation that has to do with like you said, shape, lolita has a specific skirt and bodice shape that tie the styles together, length isn't really relevant, the bodice and skirt shape have more to do with it. >>10625720 Is almost correct, but is too focused on body altering garments, which lolita definitely includes. Lolita isn't meant for people with larger breasts, long torsos or taller people in general and the basic skirt uses a petticoat, which is a body altering undergarment. Lolita's shape is basically a bodice or blouse structured to fit a petite natural torso with a skirt that uses a petti to give it a basic shape. If you look at the blurred lines between EGA and EGL, you will see what I mean. Most of the more historical inspired dresses ITT are similar to EGA vs EGL. Like EGA, many of these dresses don't rely on the lolita silhouette or the bodice shape, but instead lean on historical elements with a ballgown skirt that makes it similar to a bell shape. With that in mind, most things ITT are just not lolita.

to me, lolita like this is more how it's worn, the styling. i always remember pic related, a hime gyaru wearing whip magic. looking at the JSK and even the crown are lolita, but it just isn't lolita. it has a lot of things that would work in a lolita coord, but it's not lolita. many dresses posted here are the same way, you can wear many of them like lolita. things like >>10625347 and >>10625596 are just costumes because they're being worn like costumes. they look like historical larp. but that doesn't mean you can't style them as lolita (hell you can even style them as hime gyaru if you try hard enough) but i think that's what makes it harder.

>> No.10627032

it's clearly not styled as a lolita coord like the ones you posted. she's wearing it in a more sexy way with very gyaru hair and no blouse, where as those gyaru are styling it in a more modest way with blouses and socks and are styling their hair in a way that suits lolita better. even this picture shows that lolita looks like lolita no matter who is wearing it as long as it's styled properly.

what do you think isn't lolita about this?

>> No.10627041

Just a little costumey?

>> No.10627044

it may be a bit too busy, but it's not costumey to me. just heavy on the alice in wonderland inspiration.

>> No.10627047

Idk why but this reminds me of old school lolita. Is it because of the collar?

you dont know if shes wearing socks or not. i think blouseless coords can work fine, it leans more gyaru than lolita but i think big gyaru hair works fine in lolita.

>> No.10627054

Blouseless lolita was definitely an old school thing

This is really bad quality. The transparent OTKs are just as bad as the entire dress.

>wonky ribbons

The fabric also looks really odd

NTA but you need to be an idiot to not see the clear difference between what they posted and what you're posting.

Doesnt remind me of old school. maybe it is the alice inspiration, but otherwise it isnt old school at all

To the anon that liked this dress someone on CoF is wearing it and it's fabulous

>> No.10629965

God I love this dress so much and want it so bad but I would probably have to buy a whole new set of accessories to fit the colour and theme and I just can't take the headache rn.
And then I'd have nowhere to wear it.
I'll just admire from afar. It looks so beautiful tho.

>> No.10629967

I'm not sure which side you are anon but as someone who lurks in historical clothing community they see lolita as cheap.

>> No.10629969

Nayrt but you got me curious, what is the opinion of that community over lolita?

>> No.10629974

As someone who went from lolita mainly to historical clothing, lolita is pretty cheap.

I spend a lot on proper fabrics with historical weaves, proper natural linens and threads and wool, a lot of time researching and creating based on stitches used at the time, etc. A lot of lolita (especially modern poly shit) is more akin to fast fashion

>> No.10629977

the stays you are talking about were not ment to shape your body but hold the massive amout of fabric in it's place. It's the same as wearing a bra but the weight of your chest is not uphold by tiny straps but your whole torso.

>> No.10629982

that anon isn't well researched, no use arguing with them.

>> No.10629988

I got into lolita from the historical mixed to be more cute and wearable as a "everyday" clothing. I see alot even brand stuff in cheap light cus I'm a professional tailor and know what goes into making clothes. Not all though. It depends on the garment and not on the brand.
It comes to the desighn how it is executed and materials used.
I can agree with you there anon. For me poly clothing isn't nesesseraly bad, just it's really easy to get wrong. And most of the time they do.

>> No.10629996

lolita is basically fast fashion. it's just niche. people always treat lolita as a designer brand, when it's not. it's still all made in china.

>> No.10630426

I want you to know that I cancelled my taobao order for the dress because of your comment. I couldn't unsee the poor quality.

What I find weird is the silhouette of this dress in one of the ad's for it looks hime Lolita- but then on the mannequin it's nowhere near as cup cake shaped.


>> No.10630563

Do you even know what fast fashion means? Do you consider LV fast fashion because it’s also made in China?

>> No.10630564

i said basically, it uses cheap printing methods and is factory made not handmade. it's not designer or even close.

>> No.10630587

I think the majority of the dresses ITT are lolita if styled in a lolita way.
The problem with a lot of the OTT Chinese releases is that newbs buy them and don’t know how to coord them so they just put the dress on ans call it a day.
It takes more than a dress to make a coord. You could be wearing an AP jsk but If the coord in its summation is not styled lolita, it’s not lolita.

>> No.10630670

>not handmade so not quality
are you retarded?
Do you deadass think the industrial revolution's fruits should be ignored/denied or something?
Technology being used to have better precision in garment making is a good thing.

diffirent undergarments. most likely a hoop skirt in the video and either a diffirent kind of hoopskirt or more likely a normal petty on the mannequin.

>> No.10631012

are you confusing haute couture (which is actually handmade) with designer? Designer brands sell even tshirts, are you telling me they're handmade in an atelier and not produced in a factory? lol.

>> No.10631015 [DELETED] 

the fast fashion label is based on production speed and cycle, not how the clothes are made
