I currently fit in to shirred brand but I want to fit in to some smaller/unshirred items as well. I currently weigh around 148 pounds at 5"3. I am trying to get down to 120. I'm really struggling with dieting and every time I try to exercise I quickly get light headed. Do any anons have advice for me, maybe some easy exercises to build up my non existent stamina, or things you did while dieting?

>> No.9449777

I get dizzy and almost faint if I exercise while dehydrated or if I haven't had anything to eat in a few hours. Have a healthy snack an hour beforehand for energy, and start off exercise slow, then build the intensity.

I used to be really weak due to muscle degradation a few years back but I've managed to build up my stamina from just walking around my town alone. The best thing to do is start small and work your way up

I am vegetarian and get iron count/blood stuff checked regularly. It's low end of average but I'm physically healthy aside from just being out of shape.
I drink a lot of water so it probably isn't dehydration. Also with the amount I eat I doubt it's correlated to that.

>> No.9450043

I've got nearly a 1:1 ratio of tops:main pieces but I think I'm quite unusual. I've got a jacket, a coat, a cape, 8 boleros, 5 cardigans, 3 cutsews and 25 blouses for 41 main pieces, in addition to another 3 cardigans, 3 main pieces, a bolero and a blouse in the mail. It's even stupider that you consider that 15 of my main pieces are OPs that don't even need a blouse.

I think it's very different when you have a small wardrobe like because it can either be very cohesive and one or two blouses and outerwear would match everything, or be all over the place and need different ones for every dress. Once you get more than 15 main pieces there's no way you can get away with just sharing one or two blouses between them IMO, and the bigger your wardrobe the more likely you are to have multiple different substyles and colours in there.

>> No.9450045

Walking is exercise and is a really great start to building stamina, especially for people with health issues. If you've not got much stamina you can probably only run for a few minutes anyway, and will burn more calories overall by walking for a couple of hours, with less risk of injuring yourself. I used to become noticeably unfit during the summer when I was in high school just because I wasn't walking 25 minutes each way to school.

A good rule of thumb is that most OPs are meant for girls with a 75~cm waist at max. The reason you don't see bigger gals wearing this unless it's a replica is because the cut isn't meant for larger girls and doesn't fit. If you love it, buy it then use it as your thinspiration.

Obviously this doesn't count for extremely obese people, but slow weight loss cannot save this poor skin either.

I'm not really that organized deciding what I want to buy. A fair number of my blouse, boleros purchases are because I like the lace, the cut, the way it looks or whatever. After a while I realise that I no longer wear those blouses that I originally bought for the sake of having a blouse under a jsk, because I have much prettier things that I like better.

I guess I'm trying to say, instead of being rather utilitarian about it, try to fall in love with a really nice blouse. Lolita isn't always about having a fancy dress and everything else is a supporting role, sometimes the blouse is what makes the look good, even with a plain dress.

It is entirely possible to lose weight without working out. The only way to do it is CICO (calories in, calories out). At your height, 1200 calories a day should be sufficient for weight loss, but if you're finding it hard to keep it that low, start at 1400 and work your way down. I use mfp to track my calories. It just takes some patience and self control. I find meal planning and intermittent fasting to really help with sticking to my diet.

Seconding. I am on keto/low carb right now and it's doing wonders for what once was my ridiculously large appetite and addiction to sweets. Once I reach my goal weight, I plan to stop keto and just continue maintaining my weight with calorie counting. I'm hoping it'll work out.

>> No.9450472

Yes because I won't bother buying any.

I really like hanging shoe organisers. You can fold them so that the cutest part of the sock faces outwards, then place them into the pockets, and hang that up. If you have like 8 pairs of pastel pony socks you’d be able to tell which ones they are without having to memorise which ones are solids, stripes, or shooting stars, which was my main issue with arranging them in a drawer — you can usually only see a narrow part of the sock’s print.

The downside is you mentioned have a lot of socks in drawers, whereas the shoe organisers need to be hung up. I have several shoe organisers hung up in their own wardrobe space like a giant sock folder. I love it, and it's quite cute being able to take out a whole "page" of 8-10 socks and hang it on the wall as deco. But the full set of socks does take more space than simply stuffing them in a drawer.

Is it really that bad to have circle frames now?

I've had my circle frame (prescription) glasses for a while now, and I don't really want to buy new glasses, but I'm starting to grow more concerned that I'm going to be seen as /that girl/ at meets.

You just keep wearing them, you shouldn't have to get new ones just because they became a trend.

>> No.9450773

Same here, I've had them for like 7 years now. It went from people telling me to replace them with plastic pastel frames (wtf I wear classic) to people complimenting me on how trendy they are and asking me where I bought them, then getting confused when I say I got them from my optician instead of AliExpress. I'm also dreading the moment when they're universally considered out of fashion and people will think I'm still desperately hanging onto some trend that's sooo last year.

>>9450630 is right though, fuck 'em. We need this shit to see, and I'm assuming you got those frames because they're flattering on you so why would you need to change to something different? People who don't know you might make flash judgements but people judge others over dumb shit all the time. You can't really do much about it.

>> No.9450795

They're cute and you actually use them to see so anyone who has a problem with it would be really shallow. I experienced a sort of similar thing where I wore thick glasses my whole life and used to be considered a dork for it then suddenly one year people were like "So trendy, what a hipster" Like... they're just my glasses. And thin circular frames do go better with lolita than many other styles of glasses that can seem out of place.

>> No.9450798

The main thing with prescription glasses is that you actualy need to wear them, they're not just a fashion accessory (something I think is actually quite tacky to do). Different frame styles suit different people, and you go for what you like, and suits you. Furthermore, presciption glasses aren't exactly cheap, especially if you have a complex prescription. I recently had to spend around $600 on my new pair, most of that being the cost of the lenses. I wear a thin metal supra frame, as full rim frames are too big and heavy for my face. don't care one bit whether it's what's 'in' or not.

Assuming it's not so old it's not bluetooth compatible, get yourself one of these babies for about $2-4. You can take a bunch of pictures without having to run back and forth and check them once you've got a good lot to pick from.
I use one of these and a cheap Amazon tripod that I screwed the camera-holding part of a dollar store selfie stick onto and it's what I use to take my coord pictures. Far from fancy but it gets the job done.

Wow, you've been through everything on EGL? I'm impressed at your dedication, you must have got some good knowledge of lolita history.

I read G&LB scans but you've probably read all those too...have you tried getting into any more recent magazines, like Larme or Eternita? I find cooking relaxing but if you don't cook often it might be more stressful than anything. Trying on new lolita coords cheers me up - I worry about sweating on my clothes, so I have a warm bath with some favourite products first, and then wear an old favourite and go for a walk. I really like being in nature and trying to take extra care to notice beautiful details around me, even if it's just a nice texture of moss on a wall or the sound of birds in the park. I started reading physical books again lately after not bothering for years - it's easier for me to get fully immersed in them, since you don't have the opportunity to tab over to social media. I also watch a lot of comedy programmes just to try to make myself laugh, since when I'm depressed I can't face dramas with emotional plotlines. Trying new or difficult video games is good because when you're in that intense learning curve you have to give all your focus to the game instead of your thoughts, but they're a bit of a time sink.

I actually think the cutsew OP looks the best because of this -- cutsew dresses were always meant to look several degrees less fancy, less stiff and far more casual than regular lolita dresses. So while the regular dresses look somewhat cheapened by the all-over print and strange dress cuts, the cutsew OP seems right at home since it's always meant to be simple and comfy.

Will agree that it doesn't really look worth the hefty price tag, though. Magic Amulet cutsew OP was about the same price, but it had long sleeves and way more interesting detailing than this.

Thoracic mobilizers are good for awareness of where you're tight around your upper back, but the ones I generally do are:
- standing against a wall
- twists and standing up + stretching out my chest when I'm doing a lot of sitting
- lots of core work with attention to spinal alignment

I'm not sure how much this helps you as I have always been pretty sporty so have reasonable overall core/back strength, but have a job that is mostly sitting and I like to slouch - so for me it was about retraining my proprioception and sense of what good posture should be, rather than increasing strength or stretching. If it's for standing posture, books on the head is actually a really good one.

I feel like they reduced their stock again.

It seems like they had a period where every release was requested an mto, so they upped their stock but nobody wanted their newer releases thus reduced their stock.

AP needs to generate hype more often like what they did with the medical print preview. At least that way they can kind of guess how popular a print will be and whether they should produce more stock to restock later on.

the bed print has been restocked, the OPs at least.

Question about asian/burando jewelry here, trying to expand how much jewelry I have for coords but I have small wrists at about 5.4" around (about 13 cm) and finding bracelets that don't practically fall off my hands has been a struggle. I've actually found a lot of success with asian rings fitting my size 5 fingers and getting easy adjustable ones for my even smaller fingers. Are bracelets the same in that they run smaller? Or do I probably need to stick soley to adjustable link bracelets like with western ones?

If you want to layer 2 petticoats and one is shorter than the other, what order do you put them on? Or will it look wonky due to the length difference?

>> No.9454394

I usually do longer over shorter if I want to add volume. For shaping it really depends on what you're going for, but if the shorter one is on top I wear a short underskirt over it to smooth out the shape.

I have small wrists, Asian bangles are better than American ones but not always a good fit. I wouldn't get anything expensive without trying it on but yippy should try like chocomint.

It took forever to sell out (well, longer than some other releases), how slow is your internet? I had enough time to check out the sax JSK, tights and hat and it was still in stock for about two minutes afterwards.

40cm shoulders anon here. I have a fair amount of long sleeved (non-shirred) AP OPs and they all fit me mine. Shirred OPs fit me even better.

the only OP I have that is a bit tight on the back is Whip Lady OP which is weirdly a really similar cut to my Misty Sky OP which fits me fine.

I am not sure what happened, I went for the jsk and the hat as soon as it went up, got both in my cart, checked out, then hat was out and got booted back to cart, checked out again, and it was gone. I wanted the white one, took 3 minutes max maybe? I'm so mad I didn't try for a SS, in the past I was always fast enough but I don't do this often, maybe I just got lucky the few times before.

Please post pics when you get yours so I can live vicariously through you?

Thank you kind anon. I am definitely going to try, I just hope they get it. (Didn't see a confirmation yet?) Also I am dreading if they do a release while I am at work since now I am definitely on my own if they do, and iirc their releases can be a struggle.

Also much love to you, fellow medical field lolita!

Usually the uniformxlolita looks (nurse, nun, stewardess, military, etc) tends to focus more on the shape and form of the uniform itself. AP makes enough maid, waitress and military -themed outfits that you can see they also usually follow this norm.

It’s true that you can put together a nurse-like outfit, the jsk + blouse + nurse cap + striped OTKs would do it. However, everything else is a pretty mixed bag — the two OPs don’t look very nurse-like on their own, there is another Fancy Hospital headwear that’s a hospital symbol for your head, and the tights have a bandage on them, which is more patient-like than nurse-like.

The rest comes down to AP’s styling for their banner. They could have pushed nurse lolita, but even here it looks like they wanted to show how the jsk and cap can be worn casually in a non-nurse-like way as well. I’d say they were trying for both, they chose to stress the compatibility of this release with menhera style to increase their potential market.

I bought a dream dress for an incredible price on y!j and the seller accepted the payment but never shipped.

You can still send in an email anyway.

Actually if you've done that on the first release (despite its sold-out status) you would probably have ended up on the waiting list this time around and gotten something. Since you're emailing on the re-release I can't say whether they see fit to do a third release, but if enough girls email them orders they actually might. It's what happened with Fantasy Night Sky.
