Bodyline Review - blouse and jsk (image heavy) 
3rd-Jun-2010 06:01 pm


A very positive Bodyline review here.

I recently ordered a bunch of things from Bodyline, two of which were specifically Lolita. This is my first time ordering from Bodyline as well as my first time ordering Lolita clothing online in general.

I ordered about a week ago. The package came today & this is what it looked like:

The jsk and blouse are on the lower left and right, respectively:

Shipping/packaging: 5/5
No complaints here.

1)  the strawberry print jsk: Bodyline stock image


JSK: 10/10
Pure awesomeness. Fits perfectly. Yes, the color is slightly darker than the stock image. The jsk looks much better in real life than in the stock image. The only thing I didn't realize right away was that the jsk does indeed have a side zipper on the left side. Also, the bow in the front is not detachable. But it's a nice and sweet addition to the dress. There are two large sashes that you can tie into a back bow. :)


2) the pink long-sleeve blouse:


Blouse: 10/10
Like the jsk, it fit perfectly. There are two buttons at the ends of both sleeves. Again, I didn't realize they were there until I had difficulty putting the blouse on. xD

Overall: 10/10
I am definitely buying from Bodyline again! I don't see why a lot of people have trouble with it or complain about it (except for that time they jacked the prices up). It's a great site, and you get what you order (if and only if you take your measurements before ordering). I highly recommend Bodyline, and I highly recommend measuring yourself before ordering, because some of their items - like the blouse and jsk - come in only one size.

Hope this review helps!

You can probably just gently unstitch the bow on the JSK if you don't like it. I have quite a few BL OP's/JSK's & I tend to remove all the craptastic bows & extra things they add before wearing them. Unfortunately they just don't seem to know when to stop adding things to their garments.

PS: Only reason some people don't like BL is probably because of their nearly exact replicas & the fact they mix their Loli stuff with Cosplay/Etc... I think BL makes good casual stuff for smaller events or when you need extras cheaply or on a tight budget. :)

It's a relief knowing it looks like BL has a trend of putting oversized blouses on their models- I ordered the tailcoat set from them a few days ago and the pic of the blouse in the set kinda bugged me. Hopefully it'll fit.

I´ve been planing on buying some stuff from them but I still have doubts about their sizes couse I´m rather petite and their clothes tend to look huge on their models...may I ask you wich are you aprox. messurements?...
4th-Jun-2010 02:12 am (UTC)
approx. measurements:
height 165cm (5'5")
waist 65cm
bust 76cm

Basically, I fit into Bodyline's Medium size.

Not the OP but I am 31"/80cm bust 26"/66cm waist and have this blouse which I think fits really well on me.

That pink blouse looks so much nicer on you than in the stock photo!
Also, I'd like to point out that any bow is removable with a pair of scissors!*evil laughter*
(although not necessarily a good idea, LOL)

I love that blouse; it looks so good on you! ♥ However, is it possible to fold the collar down without it looking ridiculous? Just wondering XD

You look totally great in both outfits.

That blouse looks terrible on the stock photo, but it looks amazing on you! Must be because it's a bit big on the model, perhaps?

You're adorable in that JSK, btw!

Hey, I just discovered Bodyline but I have some questions-answers would be greatly appreciated. I fell in love with one of their jackets but what I want is out of stock. Do they re-stock? And when? Is it a first come first serve thing?

And how does shipping work? I live in USA would it be terribly expensive?

Well, I've only ordered from Bodyline just that one time. Shipping is a fixed rate of $20, so it's expensive if you're not getting that much stuff from them. I have no idea when they restock, though. :(

Thank you for replying.

I read somewhere that after you pay them, they send you bills to pay their customs or something like that. I think it was DHL, whatever that might be.

What was your expereance with that if you dont mind me asking.
21st-Oct-2010 01:22 am (UTC) - Re: Help
Yeah, they use DHL. My only experience was paying them through the site and waiting for my order to arrive. :P I think it took about two weeks for the package to come.

Have you ever ordered from

I stumbled upon it months ago and really want to buy some stuff but they get alot of mixed reviews...

Nope. Sorry! :( But I saw many posts about reviews for that site several months ago - try searching around on EGL.
