What are some Japanese accessory brands that are a bit more unique than Western ones? Is there a list somewhere?

Are Meta's raschel lace utks okay for thick calves?

It depends. They stretch amazingly, but utk dont really look that good on thick legs. It also depends on how thick you are talking, and how long, too. I suggest just getting OTK, they are more versatile anyway, and you can easily fold them down a bit and hide the fold in the thick lace.

Corsets usually do look bad under lolita. They're too bulky even when they're cinching you. Use shapewear or spanx to smooth yourself out, or lose weight to reduce your size. Trying to use body-shaping clothes to fit into clothes you're too big for doesn't work.

You order it like normal and pay what's requested. When the second payment slot comes up you order that too and pay like normal. They will likely ask what your first order number was to match it all up and you tell them.

nayrt but wondering what would measurements/measurement ranges would be considered very small, small, medium/average, large, and very large by Lolita/Asian standards?

>> No.10629922

this is a really weird thing to be considered about, just check your measurements against what you want to wear? lolita brands don't generally have small/medium/large, some taobao brands do but they provide measurements.

It was more about the cultural perception than trying to fit into anything, since I am curious about what different standards different parts of the world have. But to be honest I don't love being called small in America so part of me does want to be considered a normal size somewhere in the world

As a fatty (not obese, just overweight and tall and muscular) who also runs and works out and has thick trunk legs, someone who supposedly isn't fat shouldn't really have this issue. Having said that, I do fit into meta socks with no issues so if you are honest then you should be good.

Honestly idk like i constantly have this problem if you can see here. Like I don’t know if I’m doing it wrong.

I think the indentation on your legs just happens. Moving around and stuff does make even normal peoples legs swell just a bit, which might leave marks in your body. Also, bras and things do similar to people, fat and skinny. it just happens.

You will have no problem with meta though, they are nice and stretchy and amazing.

i really want to believe they mean turning them inside out and hanging them by the waistband. the alternative would be too retarded, but they hang them in the first place, so who knows...

PSA for everyone else, NO do not hang your petticoats that are made of a soft material. i've seen it recommended more than once and it's outright wrong. store them in a drawer, or in a bag, or something to that effect. they will floof right back up after you take them out of the compressed space.

if it's the scratchier hard tulle material, then hang it. if it's soft, stuff it somewhere.

They think about easy access when making the costumes (velcro straps, snaps, 2-piece costumes, etc) or go to the bathroom earlier than when they need to in order to have time to take it all off before desperation sets in.
