Questions about sizing and names of some items... 
29th-Jan-2013 04:25 pm


Hi everyone,

I'm just looking for some information relating to sizing and item releases on a bunch of items. Any help is MUCH appreciated! And before anyone points it out, I have checked hellolace and lolibrary, but sometimes their measurements are wrong, or the item is not listed.

'Angelic Pretty' 'Lace Up Lacy Turtleneck' Cutsew 2
'Angelic Pretty' 'Lace Up Lacy Turtleneck Cutsew'
~Is the max. waist measurement definitely 70cm?
~Is the fabric stretchy at all, and if so, is it likely to stretch a further 6cm?


'Angelic Pretty' 'Rose Toilette' JSK
'Angelic Pretty' 'Rose Toilette' JSK
~What is the max. waist measurement? There is partial shirring at the back, so I'm presuming 70cm is the minimum waist.


'Angelic Pretty' 'Twinkle Ornament' JSK
'Angelic Pretty' 'Twinkle Ornament' JSK
~Same as 'Rose Toilette'. What is the max. waist measurement with the partial back shirring?


'Baby, the Stars Shine Bright' 'Dripping Lace Rococo Accessories' JSK I
'Baby, the Stars Shine Bright' 'Dripping Lace Rococo Accessories' JSK I
~Looking for anymore information and/or photos of this dress! According to hellolace, this is 'JSK I', indicating that there might be a 'JSK II'.
~Does anyone know the measurements of either JSK?
~Am I right in thinking it may have an alternate name to 'Dripping Lace Rococo Accessories'?


'Emily Temple Cute' Ballet Shoes

~Are these shoes available in size 22.5?
~Do they come in any other colour?


'Mary Magdalene' '...' JSK
'Mary Magdalene'
~What is the name of this 'Mary Magdalene' JSK?
~Does anyone know the measurements of it? (I apologize if this is on hellolace or lolibrary and I missed it).


'Mary Magdalene' 'Braided High Waist' Skirt (with 'Lady' print)'Mary Magdalene' 'Braided High Waist' Skirt (with 'Lady' print) 2
'Mary Magdalene' 'Braided High Waist' Skirt
~This skirt is supposedly called 'braided high waist'. Here is the original item page: http://www.marymagdalene.jp/contents/skirt/231/0301/, as you can see the skirt was released both in a plain version, and in a printed version known as 'Lady'.
~Was this 'Lady' print ever made into a JSK or OP?
~Does anyone have any photos of this item? I am in love with this print, but apart from appearing in fan_chan's wardrobe, I have never seen it outside of the original item page.


Thank you so much! As I said, any bit of help at all is very much appreciated!

I just took the waist measurement of my Rose Toilette JSK (without the waist ties and by removing the corset lacing at the back) for you and I'd say that it could go up to 85cm =).

Oh, thank you! That makes me happy :) So that's one item I can add to my 'dream dresses' list, LOL.

You're welcome, I'm glad it helped.
Good luck to get it ;).

For dripping lace rococo accessories, the JSK1 is because BTSSB considers cap-sleeved OPs to be JSK, not OP. So JSK II would have been the OP. Neither the OP nor the JSK have shirring. As for a different name.. if you drop the item type from the name google translate will give you word salad that doesn't mean much in English (Shizuku Rokokokomono pattern of race), but the official name is the only name I know for it. If you want more photos (like photos of different colorways) just do a google image search of the Japanese name; a bunch of people's personal photos come up (I don't want to link them all here because it might be considered rude).

There was also a skirt: http://web.archive.org/web/20090102013718/http://www.babyssb.co.jp/shopping/skirt/132536.html
I only own the skirt, and I can say for sure that it's not bigger than the 72cm max. I took the elastic out of mine entirely and it's still slightly smaller than 72cm. If you want specific images or info, I take take closeups of my skirt, if that is any help?

'Emily Temple Cute' ballet shoes
~Are these shoes available in size 22.5? I believe so. Typically ETC shoes come in S (22.5 cm), M (23.5 cm), L (24.5 cm).
~Do they come in any other colour? For this particular style, I've only seen ivory.
