Question about AatP Vampire Requiem

Hi! I tried to search for an answer for hours but couldn't find anything (maybe I wasn't using right words...) so I decided to ask here! I love Vampire Requiem Corset JSK and I found the measurements in Hellolace. The first version and reserve version have different measurements. So I wanted to ask if they really are made different even though it is ''the same dress''? And also are the measurements in both dresses correct in Hellolace? Sometimes they are a little off. If somebody of you lovelies have the dress (any version), it would be awesome if you could measure the max measurements of the dress yourself : ) Bust and waist. Thank you very much! : )

The first and second realeases are te same model, there are slight difference size wise but not exactly on the two realeases but on the jsks in general, it was told that the second realease had slightly bigger sizes but i think that was rather random honestly. unfotunatly that happens a lot with baby, i also ordered NFF from reservation and it was 6 cm smaller than it was supposed to be on the bust.

I own the corset jsk from the first realease (i think) and i looked for it for quite a while before buying and honestly if you are planing on buying ask the seller to measure the specifc dress because there were a lot of cases where the dress was smaller than the oficial measurements, mine is 98cm max on bust and about 82 - 83 on waist and is a litle bigger than the ususal, i'm on the plus size side so i had a hard time finding one that fitted me ...

nymia_san is right - you'll just have to ask the individual sellers for measurements. Generally, the first release runs smaller, but the measurements for these pieces seems all over the place. I know the Vampire Requiem I bought from the second release was significantly smaller than advertised, but mine seemed to be just a fluke. I sold it to a really tiny girl who was glad it was smaller than usual. :)

The first release also has a hidden zipper and the second has a placket zipper. I know most lolis love a hidden zip, but I am a fan of the placket since the hidden gets stuck at the gathers.

There were two releases. Certain colours were only available in certain releases.
The long JSK i believe was first release only.
Lavender colour was first release only. I think dark blue was second release only.
I have owned all three (short first release, short second release and long release). The long JSK seems to be the most forgiving personally. The second release is far bigger then the first.

My friend owns the first release and i own the second release. We did compare the two dresses and mine was a little bit longer and a little bit bigger. Measurements on Hello lace seems pretty accurate to me.
