I'm ready to weep :(
I just got my Taobao order home today. The Rococosoul accessories above are so cute! But that's not really the reason for the frowny face. Body-rant coming up, so please bear with me. Or don't and just move on.
It is now quite painstakingly obvious that I'm too chunky to be a real lolita. Not really too fat, as I've seen heavier girls than me pull off amazing coords and look extremely cute. Yeah, I couldn't hurt from losing a 'few' kilos off my waist, but it wouldn't solve my true problem: the boobs. My cup size is so large that it is not possible for me to ever wear brand blouses. And even off-brand falls about 10cm short for me.
So the cute Infanta pink blouse I got is definitely never going to fit me. Which is a shame, since the cut looked nice on me, which is a rarity given my slender shoulders and the massive melons. And the Starberry lolita blouses that I had custom sized for me were also a bit too tight. The buttons stretched so much that the front gaped.
By this time I was feeling very, very depressed. Only the Infanta cutsew fit me, but it did so quite nicely actually. The sleeves are about long enough and the shirt is long enough so that it doesn't show my belly button, like some shorter cutsews easily do :D And the print looks to be of decent quality as it hasn't crackled from being stretched over the big twins. (Yeah, I'm going to play every damn euphonism here, just to make myself smile a little bit from all this.)
I then tried the blouses again with my full cup bras, which ever so slightly press the buns down. And finally they seemed workable. I ended up using a trick I first came up with in high school, with sewing close the damn front all together so that it cannot gape and with just a minor struggle, managed to pull it on. Wew. I now have usable blouses.
Well, except for the fact that the sleeves are way too tight on my arms so I can't close the buttons there, but that I can work on.
After finally being somewhat not miserable about my clothes I wanted to cheer myself up by at least dressing Fyrd up nicely. The good thing about dolls is that that they don't have to diet and pretty much anything you buy will fit them. Especially with Fyrd, who I buy boy clothes for, so that they all fit loosely on his slim girl body.
Except. When they are the wrong fucking size!! I had to double-check it, but yes, I had ordered the set in 1/3 size. But the thing I received has sleeves that look 3/4 on his arms and is some 4cm short from closing around his chest. This set is MSD sized!!1!
Already sent feedback for Taobaonow, and we'll see what they say. My ideal solution would be that they reorder me the set in the correct size and I'll only pay for the item, not the fees or for shipping. And I could try to resell the MSd set that I have. (Which is very cute on its own and I think it'll sell quickly.) But knowing Asian companies, they'll probably want me to send it back with my own expence and then pay the fees and shipping for the right item.
