>Should I just give up on OPs?

At 38cm shoulders, yes. 37cm is already IW's L size, most brands go with 34-36cm shoulder width. Your last resort is those shirred OPs, but they often have puffy sleeves that look even worse on people with linebacker shoulders.

You'll have a far easier time using your own blouses and cardigans, closely tailored for your own size, and then going with brand jsks.

I should add a note, lolita tends to look bad on people with an inverted triangle shape (ie - your shoulder looks way wider than your hips), so if you're one of those you might think about getting into Larme or some other fashion that doesn't involve padding out the hips with petticoats. Not telling you what to wear, just dropping some info to help anons out.

>> No.9976751

I have 40 cm shoulders but 82 cm bust, the lack of bust usually makes up for extra shoulders. 36 cm+ always fits great, 34 cm is a gamble though

Doesn't it look better on people with wide shoulders? Larme would only accentuate the widened, while the poof from lolita balances it out

>> No.9976753

That’s not how shoulder measurements work at all, anon. A person 38 cm would generally be able to fit into an OP with stated measurements of 36 to 40 cm, depending on their build.

Your advice about larme and body shape is shit too. Where are you getting this info, from some boomer cosmo magazine?

>> No.9976754


One of the incarnations of the ita thread legit had someone who looked way better in regular normie clothes rather than lolita, the poofy skirt basically made it so her body shape was wide top-wide waist-wide bottom while out of lolita she had an hourglass silhoutte without the petticoat and the poofy skirt hiding most of it.


I didn't assume it was someone with an 82cm bust, I'll give you there's a bit of conjecture since the conversation turned to fatties and such shortly after.

Either way, it's just a friendly note that those with inverted triangles may want to look into, at least look at themselves in the mirror and see if lolita silhoutte works on them or not.

Like I said, I'm not telling you what to wear. Just a little note to help out whoever it applies to.

>> No.9976758

Can confirm this as a 42cm shoulders and 84cm bust. New AP long sleeve ops fit fine (can't fully rise my arms with these though but enough to put shit on my head and to zip it myself) but it requires small bust, underbust and waist. It must be a bit loose in bodice or the fit will be awful.

>> No.9976765

What? Can someone translate this into a size? Isn't this a "Large"?
>tfw you liked lolita because you're an American small and now all the sweet brands are inflating

>> No.9976766

Worf here
My bust is 83cm and I have a small torso, just weird stick figure shoulders and arms. So if IW’s size M and L blouses fit okay on me I should be fine with ~36cm OPs? Maybe I should give it a try some time.

I’m not an inverted triangle btw, more like an hourglass without the boobs. Shoulders are my only issue.

My comm has two meetups planned for Halloween and I have a pretty casual witch coord (yeah I know) planned for one, but the other is going to be at a really fancy venue and I’m scrambling to come up with a suitably fancy coord with the main pieces I already have. Normally I’d make something but this year I don’t have the time for that and it’s pretty frustrating. I’ll probably end up looking super basic compared to everyone else there. Oh well.

>> No.9976802

>being this new
Standard sizing (S, M, L etc.) isn't typically used in the lolita community because it's essentially meaningless, i.e. an American M is incomparable to the Japanese M, and one American store's M is wildly different to another; so the majority of experienced lolitas don't bother referencing this sizing and use centimeters instead.

>> No.9976808

All lolita designers use cm measurements. Even taobao who does use s/m/l still put the cm measurements next to said sizes. So again. Learn your fucking measurements :^)

>> No.9976810

Also, these measurements are kind of weird, as someone pointed out. IWs more recent small blouses usually have around 35 cm shoulders, so 34 cm is really small considering the rest of the measurements are quite large. From what I've seen shoulder measurements are normally sized up along with the rest of the garment, so it's hard to say what this would be in American sizes because the shoulders are one size and the bust/waist is another. Maybe they're counting on people to be way under states measurements so there's more room for the shoulders? According to a chart I found it seems to be roughly a US size 12 based on bust/waist, but I'm not American so idk what that translates to letter-wise for you.

>> No.9976811

Seriously you are fucking lazy. You could have easily googled it if you want to rely on inaccurate sizing. I did it for you: US 10-12, S-M. Also I doubt you are as small as you think you are, especially when it comes to lolita.

>> No.9976842

US sizing varies wildly, sometimes an S is 0-2 and sometimes it's 4-6. Even number sizes can vary frequently. Usually though if you consistently wear S/XS you should easily fit into any lolita

What are you talking about, I'm saying that most lolitas fit into the 89-92 sizing so it's easy to find OPs to fit average size girls. Really large OPs are hard to find, even IW L is still on the larger size of average.

That is my point that huge OPs are not the norm, I think it's fine to have the occasional oversized release, some people like that style or need big sizes

>> No.9976917

Bro it's an oversized S-M. Chinese and Japanese girls are still really into the oversized trend. A size L can squeeze into it but the shoulders on this and plackets on sack dresses won't sit in the right place since they have fat in the arms and back area that other girls don't have

Quite a lot of them, actually. Eggs for Easter being a pagan tradition originally, Easter itself being either an equinox or a solstice. Mistletoes in Christmas, Christmas itself being another solstice.

Christianity went through a phase where it adopted local holy days because the peasants like to drink and dance and can't get behind a religion that doesn't have some excuse to drink, dance and be merry.


My area doesn't "do" Halloween either and my comm has a meetup because it's fun to dress up.

Curiously enough, for a country that doesn't do Halloween we get a lot of Halloween deco and special candy packs every Halloween.

My country is very slowly getting more Halloween-y, but it’s an „american holiday thing“ here. Still I am a big Halloween fanatic and I love our Halloween meets.

>> No.9982633

I'm happy to see other countries getting into Halloween. I think it's taking off in places like Japan and elsewhere because it's a holiday that everyone can enjoy during a time where the seasons are changing and the summer is ending.

It appeals to kids and adults alike. Dressing up, enjoying seasonal foods, and embracing the general eeriness of Fall is something people all over the world can enjoy.

Personally it's my favorite holiday and I'm glad it's really embraced by lolitas all over the world.

Looking up the history isn’t very relevant to what I want to know, which is what you wear on Halloween nowadays. But judging all the comments in this thread it became pretty random?

That coord looks great! I would love to see some more inspo like this. I am so done with all the Witch Lolita coords!

I can explain that in one word, ‘Americanisation’. American holidays have become very trendy, so there are a lot of Halloween-themed parties/events around the end of October and my comm got into it too. We have had a few Halloween meets already, but in the past not a lot of people followed the theme and the ones who did were often a witch. But this year the event will be much bigger, so you want to be dressed on point. It’s just so hard when all you see here is the standard Witch, Vampire or Zombie. There must be more to Halloween not?

There sure is! You can go shiro or kuro and do a spooky, smokey makeup look. You can embrace the colors of Fall and do red, yellow, and brown outfits. Pumpkins and seasonal foods is another theme you could embrace. Fall/halloween is all about comfort foods too - dresses with pies or with a farmer/harvest theme would also fit, especially if you can use warm autumn colors.

I'd love to see someone do a candy-corn outfit, with yellow tights, an orangey skirt/JSK and a white bonnet.

Most holidays used to be pagan.

How is it fun to do something you're not even really into?

You can dress up any day.

And if people put out Halloween deco and are celebrating the holiday, how is that not having the holiday there?

I wasn't talking about you then.

>which is what you wear on Halloween nowadays
Well if all you care about is being dumb and trendy like americans then cosplay your favorite vocoloid.

There's a lot to Halloween which is why I said research it.

No one here “puts out” Halloween decor. No one’s going trick-or-treating, and if you attempt it someone will probably call the cops on you. There’s no tradition of candy exchange/gifting. Even the cafes sometimes think we’re cosplayers rather than dressed up for Halloween. Half the population will need to have it explained to them as an American party. None of the shopping malls even bother decorating for Halloween.

We just get aisles of Halloween decor and candy, and that’s it. I guess people are having private Halloween-themed get-togethers, and Halloween candy gets bought because it’s candy (and sometimes the packaging is cute). I’m not sure if that counts as having the holiday here when there’s no other acknowledgement of it and people do actually need to have it explained.

You sound annoyed! I actually did look at the origin and the history, but it just wasn’t helpful to me at all. I don’t know what great insights you think it should have offered me, but the reasons behind why people did it isn’t really relevant when we won’t actually celebrate it. Halloween is just the dresscode and I have no clue on what to wear.

Those are lovely ideas! But unfortunately I don’t really have anything in my wardrobe with which you can do something like that. I have a pastel-colored, flower themed wardrobe, so I have something for all seasons except autumn.
I did order a dress that would be great for the Halloween theme, which would ship at the end of this month, but the store changed that and said it can now take up to January, so I need to find something else.

>> No.9982804

If you have lots of floral and perhaps a green dress, you could do a red wig some accessories to maybe look like a fancy dressed up Poison Ivy from Batman?

>> No.9982805

You can always make a garden witch coord.

>> No.9982809

I don’t really have anything Poisom Ivy like, also not really into such thing. But thank you for the suggestion.
I was thinking about an elf or a snow queen, but both wouldn’t look spooky and I fear that some might consider it not being very Halloweenish because of that.

>> No.9982834

Do a snow queen elf with white glitter crystalish skin shironuri makeup!

That's what I was referring to.

Why, what is it for??

The going trick or treat thing is for kids, not adults and I don't know how many times I have to stress that I'm not talking about the part of the holiday that for children.

I'm not annoyed so much as baffled. At this point people are saying things that don't even make sense in the discussion anymore.

Just the first paragraph gave me ideas.

but you only have a floral wardrobe and you don't want to be a witch and you liked the coord inspo I gave you - if you only have floral stuff I suggest doing something like Minori does.

All I'm saying is that if Halloween is the dresscode, then you should try to wear something that fits the theme.

Burgerlander here.
Adults have to take kids trick or treating and usually take a cut of the candy for themselves so the kids don't eat themselves into a diabetic shock. Also, many adults have costume parties and go bar hoping and are given candy at those in the spirit of things. At least here.

Its mostly commercialized and capitalized to the max. Maybe about 50 years ago it was all about being scary but as commercial characters and the media evolved, cute characters and animals got involved. (Also the fact that over the years little kids are more likely to trick or treat at friendly looking houses while adults go looking for a spook at scarier decorated houses.)Not the original spirit of Halloween, no, but that's how its evolved to include adults and the not so Halloween themed things.

Not sure if that helps. Its different in each country that celebrates it but really the spirit of the holiday is what you personally take from it.

Heck if I know. That's why it's noteworthy. It's a country where if you walk out the door dressed up on Halloween half the people you meet WILL ask you why you're dressed up (the other half simply doesn't care why, or assumes you're a shop mascot/booth babe).

We simply don't "do" Halloween.We just get Halloween decor. Who's buying them? Where are all those parties at? How are people attending so many Halloween parties every year that we're even getting pop-up Halloween shops and yet the shoppers, standing right in front of said pop-up Halloween shops, will still ask why you're dressed up and you have to explain Halloween as a dress-up party to them? Are they not dressing up for their Halloween parties? Where are all those invisible people who are buying the decor and actually celebrating Halloween?

Seriously, heck if I know. All I know is the country itself doesn't "do" Halloween, we just get the decor and the candy, for whatever reason. Maybe people use the decor for non-Halloween spoopy parties, idk.

Maybe all the goths in your country wait until Halloween to redecorate

Eew. Most of it is cheap plastic tacky shit.

On the other hand, I can totally imagine mallgoth teenagers doing it since they won't have access to online shopping yet.
