I've been thinking about opening a small lolita shop online to sell accessories and I don't think I'd be big enough to really have my own independent website. I notice a lot of indie brands go with StoreEnvy and sometimes Etsy. I've also looked into Tictail and have heard good things about their fees, which seem very low. I used to sell items unrelated to lolita on eBay long ago and their fees are suffocating these days, so I'd like to avoid sites that really dig into profit.

Where does most of the lolita community generally go to sell on these "handmade" shopping sites? Are they more on Etsy or Storeenvy these days? Also, which platform do you most frequently search for indie brands or lolita accessories?

And, once again, I can't figure out what's going on in the bust area, why is there a short white line in the middle of it.

I like how they changed the colours so that the mint dress has green and red crowns and the lavender dress has purple and blue crowns. That's about it, though.

I think the white line is the "fur" trim on the crowns

That line is there to demarcate where the nipples of medium-boobed wearers are going to sit. For big-boobed wearers it's the overbust line.

I've mostly seen sellers sell to their own area -- either their local comm, or just European sellers mostly catering to European lolitas kinda thing. Makes sense because shipping is a pita for both buyers and sellers, and quite often someone needing an accessory in a hurry is a good reason to buy from a local shop instead of going to taobao and waiting two weeks for it to maybe arrive on time.

For publicity, most of them seem to update frequently on SNS -- usually insta or FB, tumblr seems outdated and twitter doesn't seem quite as popular. You can do the occasional "Hi my shop has new updates" type of posts on lolitaupdates group to get the word out that you have a shop, then post your insta/FB and people will follow you (and hopefully buy something from you further down the line).

Ridiculous story it is honestly. Kamijo (of Lareine and Versailles fame) is doing a collaboration song with Miku Hatsune. For some fucking reason they made the design Miku wears in the promotional art into a doll, and they also decided to make a human sized verson of the dress. For reasons beyond me they aproached Moitie to produce the human sized dress.

It makes no sense honestly.

If you took a lolita from the original old-old-old school lolita scene and said 'this is what lolita is now', what do you think they would say?
The same goes for early 2000s old schoolers. Do you think they would think today's stuff was lolita or nice? Even a 2010 sweet girl looking at the million underskirt trend last year would probably see a disconnect.
I don't really know who could answer this, but what do you think they would say?

>> No.9755490

You sounded confused about why the dress was made

>> No.9755492

Nothing. Westen ones would say they miss livejournal. I've talked with lolitas from over 15 years ago and basically they just dislike some trends more than others. There also used to be a few people (at least in the West) who would argue you're not a lolita if you only own bodyline, I reckon they'd feel the same about taobao.

>> No.9755499


The early lolitas valued quality a lot, I think they'd hate taobao and the Chinese influences. They valued a high quality fabric more than a print (same goes for embellishments like quality lace and appliques). Their goal was also to look more like a doll and to just have fun with some friends and less to become famous with some flashy OTT outfit. They also socialzied a lot outside so an outfit with 10 petticoats, and scepters and what not wouldn't be practical for them.

I remember people arguing on egl about whether polka dots were acceptable in lolita or not so I'm sure that if you went back in time and showed them modern lolita, especially AP, they'd just say it's not lolita. Not necessarily that it's ugly or anything, just not lolita.

Well OP asked for what lolita was like around 2000 or for old-old-old school lolitas (so I guess that includes 90s and 80s as well). So since it wasn't really existent in the west at this point I thought they meant how Japanese lolitas would react and that's what my reply was about. Japanese lolitas. Of course I wasn't part of that, but who was? I saw a lot of old magazine scans and what they would wear back then and I've also read a lot blogs (for example on geocities when it was still around) and based my reply on that.

Prints existed back then, they just were different. It were mostly screen prints or all-over prints. Or embroidery or applique. Of course technology changed the game in prints completely, but that wasn't even my point. I think think that if they had todays technology they'd still prefer their own stuff because it would be completely alien to the zeitgeist.

I remember reading similar things regarding fabric and quality from translations and blogs as well - I think this was a concept that was pushed forward by the magazines (probably to justify why the hell everything cost the amount it did back then) more though, rather than values that were held collectively by the girls involved in the fashion back then.

You could argue that on the whole the QA requirements of Japan itself was to a higher standard than the US if you just compare what the two countries considered sellable. Overseas Japan used to have the same reputation that China currently has now but that's a mix of keeping the best shit for themselves and gradually improving things until they improved that perception.

I only say "was" because fast fashion and its shakiness for quality has taken a pretty deep hold there in recent years so I dunno how true or false it is now.

Buy it because you like the print, then hate yourself when you get it because the quality isn’t brand. I’ve done the same thing. It’s natural to feel tempted by some Taobao prints but they’re just not up to par, on top of being what’s literally killing brand.

>> No.9755903

It depends on the brand. I used to buy a lot of Taobao in 2014-2016 and even when the quality wasn't brand-equivalent it at least was "good enough" - maybe lacking some small details like pockets or custom trim but otherwise really solid and not cheap-looking from a distance. But I don't trust most of the brands popping up out of nowhere on LU these days - what I've seen in person has had blurry prints or weak seams and you can often tell is cheap just from a photo.

If you like the dress, buy it, don't worry about what other girls will think (I've never been in a comm where it'd be a scandal to own a Taobao dress and I can't imagine people would really give a fuck, but then I'm from the UK...). But if you think the quality will really be that shit, go with your gut.

>> No.9755906

If it's $14 it'll be shit. There are $70-$130 dresses on Taobao that are similar to brand (probably similar manufacturing cost to JP brands once you account for cheaper Chinese labour and less overheads) but you can't get a dress as cheap as $14 without skimping on materials and construction, period.

>> No.9756131


The magazines didn't really push the concept of quality. The kind of translation where they say the fabric is nice, has a princess feel, the lace is gorgeous, etc etc -- that's still the same sales drivel that you'd find in the last GLB. If anything I'd say the magazines were really light on emphasising quality, maybe because Japan doesn't have the same issues as the international comm. They don't seem to have issues with brands like Marble, Metamorphose using raschel lace, meanwhile old egl comm would be full of girls trying to educate you on why raschel lace is the devil incarnate.

What the international comm faced was a lot of itas and weebs wearing eBay lace monsters (in a time of no taobao, chinese companies sold expensive crappy replicas through eBay) while whining that burando dresses are too expensive. So every once in a while somebody or another would post a picture of an eBay lace monster next to, say, Baby's Elizabeth OP, and then point out exactly how much difference the lace quality makes. I'd say it was even more serious, because at that time the costume companies pushed "sexy lolita costume" like there was no tomorrow, and the weebs thought arm warmers and leg warmers means an outfit was lolita, and would argue you to death on their "right" to wear whatever shitty thing they wanted and call it lolita. If you've ever wondered why lolitas are so strong on gatekeeping, this is why -- a whole decade of telling different people, "no, armwarmers/cat ears by themselves are not lolita", "no, lolita is not a sex thing", "no, lolita is not cosplay", etc etc.

I don't think the emphasis on quality has changed a whole lot. Taobao is one thing, but one of the hallmarks of recognising a sissy is still how much care he puts into his clothes -- if they're wearing some shiny satin mess it's a pretty safe bet they don't actually care about clothes at all, and didn't join the comm to talk about the clothes they don't care about.

>> No.9756152

I don't think Japan had to push quality in the past as it was already a thing. This is true even for Western culture, our garments made in the past are of better quality. Now that fast fashion is King and is starting to become so in Japan, I think we need to continue pushing it harder than ever because soon we'll have only taobao quality left even with the big brands surviving.

>> No.9756756

It depends on the item to be totally honest. Shirring from item to item can be more constricting or forgiving depending on how they made the dress/blouse. For example, I have a nearly full shirring JetJ OP I bought off a plus sized lolita. She was bigger than me, but the shirring isn't at all stretched out because it's more forgiving. For things like cardigans, I can tell you just based off my own boobs that cardigans are more susceptible to stretching because of the material often used. Unless you are similar in bust measurements to the person you're buying the cardi from or it's nearly unworn, I wouldn't risk it

Outsider male here

I'm dating this girl I didn't know was a Lolita. Im a nerd but had no idea what it was, browsing this board have helped a lot. However it didn't really bother me at first I'm starting to get a little creeped about by it. Not by her but myself.

Her style is very childish and she basically look like a little girl, it doesn't look Victorian, it mostly feels like she's wearing dresses that looks like the ones little girls wear. She almost behaves/sounds like a little girl when wearing it also. She also has a doll collection. It makes me feel like she's a grown woman who wanna be a little girl princess. It's kinda sweet but there is problem.

I'm creeped out by myself dating this kind of person, it makes me feel like such a pedo because I'm liking it so much. I love how innocent and sweet she looks and behaves, but it's makes me feel like a huge pedo.

How do I deal with this?

I really wish I could see how lolita resembles children's clothing. Other than being bright colours and having prints as with sweet, I genuinely don't see how people can compare the two.

If it's true then it's just something that this girl does, not anything directly related to lolita fashion. Putting on fake personas is actually frowned upon in the community.

I'm not sure why this is so commonly thought. Its really strange how pedos are depicted.. Anyway- my dad is a pedo and I was exposed to the child porn industry in my teens. A lot of the "pedos" were also into teens or girls/guys in their 20s but mostly girls.

It may seem far fetched to some but pedos do have their own little groups where they talk about what they like and little kids are usually just one of the many depraved things they enjoy.

I have an Angelic Pretty OP that I bought new and have never worn, and when I decided to sell it and took it out of my closet I saw that the elastic in the sleeve cuffs had sort of disintegrated (the rubber broke down or something) and they're all stretched out looking and awful. All I can think is that maybe the manufacturer used old or improperly stored elastic because I've never had something like this happen before.

I thought I could just replace the elastic but it's actually sewn into the seam with an overlock stitch in places rather than set in a continuous tubing, so after partially picking one sleeve apart I decided to stop before I made it worse.

While I may never get my dream print of more exotic species, I hope every year that IW/Meta/Baby will come out with a pleasing spring songbird print.

Like, nothing wrong with cats and deer and bunnies, I'm just a crazy bird lady and would love something other than Taobao that primarily features birds.

Bought a full-shirred Meta JSK from a girl on here, she'd tried it on and not liked it, saw from her Facebook that she was pretty large.

No damage to the JSK at all, still fit me well at US size 4. I think someone would have to wear something for a prolonged period of time or really strain the seams to damage it.

>> No.9758932

Thinking something like these. A very simple long-sleeved cut like top right, but with a deeper, more vintage-style V-neck, and nice-quality cotton in a dusty sax. Heck, I'd settle for grey or ivory. Most sailor comes out short-sleeved or with a ton of school/military detailing like buttons so it's unlikely.

I am also a 60 but think they might size small and a 65 could be OK, I'd be surprised if a Japanese brand didn't go that low when Japanese girls are smaller in general (I'm well above average Japanese height).

65 is the smallest widely available band size in Japan. If you're a true 60, some 65 should work, provided you can tighten them a bit. I am a 65 but sometimes buy 70s for convenience and when I'm on the rag. Make sure to choose the right cup size if you're going for a sister size, though.

Also, this probably goes without saying, but IME, the cups of Japanese padded bras are noticeably smaller than US/UK brands, even without the inserts. I am a true 65DD/E, but I usually wear a 65F or 70DD/E in Japanese bras. If I want to wear the inserts, I need to go up at least one if not two cup sizes.

>> No.9758965

That's good to know! Someone told me that Japanese cup sizes are the size you'll appear with the bra on and inserts in, not the size of your actual breasts, but I'm not sure if its true.

I usually buy 65 because getting 60 is just too much of a hassle, but even 65 is rare in my country. I thought Japan might have smaller sizes, but it seems I was only partially right. Might try the 65 ones anyway since they're cute and not expensive.

>> No.9758986

That might be the case, but I also have no idea.

I bloat up pretty bad the first couple of days and also deal with endometriosis, so around that time I really want to wear the loosest/most comfortable clothing possible.

I'd give it a shot.

>> No.9759004

Wait, the 60 is your underbust in cm right? And 28” is ~70cm. I wear a 28/70C myself and sometimes a 65D but I can’t imagine squeezing myself into a 60cm band size with my 70cm underbust. Am I misunderstanding something?

Anyway I’m having a hard enough time finding a 70cm band size in local stores so I have no idea how you guys manage. I’ve literally never seen a 60cm band size, not even online.

>> No.9759006

28in does not equal 60cm, anon. 28 is a 70 band.
60 is for band sizes of like 23-25".

If you're actually a 28DD, brands like Wacoal, Panache, and Freya are good places to look.

>> No.9759009

How did you find out that that's your size if they didn't have anything in that size?

>> No.9759016

Not that anon, but I'm in the same boat. I got measured by an old lady at a specialty bra shop who said I probably should be wearing a 60E but since it's so rare I could also go with 65D (there's no DD in European sizes). I do notice that the 65D bras I buy get loose in the band very quickly. They're usually fine in the beginning but I almost immediately wear them on the tightest setting and it only goes downhill from there.

28 is not 70. 28 is in fact 60. I have a 70cm underbust as well. Local stores don't carry my size, not even 65D. I try to buy my bras when I'm in the UK where they do have them.

Anon, ask that specialty bra shop if they alter bras. My local shop will actually take in bras if they're stretched out/too big in the band. Only a couple of inches, and only on bras you purchased from them. They replace broken underwires too. But it might be worth your time to ask them.

US measuring methods are retarded (not only for bras, see: different systems for male and female footwear).
Usually unberbust +0 or +4 is used for band, with some brands using charts that fall somewhere in between. Some brands eve measure it above the breasts. It's a mess in US. There's no standardization.
For cups, in the Anglosphere the A cup is a difference in 1 inch to band (around 5.5 in to underbust), and goes up in steps of one inch. The naming above D is mess again.

EU, Japan, and Korea abide to strict (inter)national standards.
Band sizes are underbust measurement rounded to 5 cm, simple as that.
Cup sizes differ a little.
EU starts at 11±1 cm for AA cup, and the difference is 2 cm for each size above. No letters are doubled except for initial AA.
Japan and Korea goes in steps of 2.5 cm, AA being 7.5±1.25 cm, Korea additionally has one step lower, AAA at 5 cm, but otherwise no letters are doubled.

>> No.9759242

28 is the band size, not underbust size. Subtract 4", then convert to cm, to get the EU/international band size.
28 is 24" underbust, making it almost 61 cm.

But again, US can't get anything right, and not all brands use underbust +4 measurement, so you sometimes can get 28 band that really equals 28" underbust.

Even Wacoal calculates 24" underbust as 28 band.

>> No.9759244

Thanks for explaining this Anon. I know my UK size and my measurements, but I was always intimidated when looking at Japanese bras. Though does this account for all the padding? Like above anon mentioned? When I was looking at C cups at a store in Japan it looked way smaller than my usual, yet that's what I should be according to this chart.

>> No.9759252

>thinking EU countries and brands use the same size

>> No.9759274

Through what I was able to find, apparently Japanese bras come with a lot of padding, which is removable, so you can try going a cup size (or even two) higher, if you plan on keeping the padding.

EU is pretty silly, but it's great when it comes to standards.
Countries using non-standard sizing in the past (e.g. Italy) moved to the EU standard already.
France/Belgium/Spain use EU underbust + 15 cm to calculate band. UK is a special snowflake with imperial system, but they will leave EU soon, so that will solve itself.

>> No.9759301

>> No.9760020

I know because I'm familiar with which brands fit me. Most have shirring or waist-ties. It doesn't really matter if it's 1cm too big. When I buy from a lolita brand I don't know well, it sometimes doesn't fit, but I can sell it. With bras, if it's 1cm wrong it can look really bad and/or get uncomfortable. You have to try on a bra to know if it fits exactly. I would only buy them online from a brand that I've bought from before and it's the exact same style/shape as that time.

Oh, and please don't derail another thread.
