Bodyline review

I finally jumped the gun and ordered a wa-lolita (hope I got that one right :x) outfit + shoes at bodyline. And it arrived today :)

I ordered this particular yukata from the Bodyline site in Queen size.
g643-2

I was quite excited when the box arrived today.

Communication: 5/5 Well I didnt ask them any questions and no problems showed up on my side or theirs so I call it even lol.

Quality: 5/5 The dress is made from mostly cotton(70%) and polyester. The fabric is beautiful, sturdy and not to thin. Edges were finished nicely and locked. The lace very subtle, as is the rim on the sleeves (I have no clue what that type of fabric is called).

I really love the color of this yukata. Not too dark and not too bright.

The finishing is very professional. I am really happy with that.

The corset is very well made but for me its 'Omg I cant breathe!'-size. I am very sad about this because its a really pretty corset. I will make a corset more fitting to my size or lose weight lol!

Overall I am very happy with this dress. Bodyline did a good job for a first-time customer on me :). Now onwards to the shoes.

When I unwrapped them I was thinking I am never going to fit in them. I have size 27,0 (43 EU) and I am used to having a major nightmare finding shoes. Normally I spend over € 100 on 1 pair of shoes because my feet are bigger then normal confection size and they are slim also. Whenever I went to the most normal shoe-stores they told me to go wear mens size shoes which I cannot because they are to wide for me lol (I hate it when salespersons say that to me btw).

But its time to rejoice! They are a perfect fit.

I was fighting a little to get the heart buckle straps on. They shift so these arent great shoes if you are in a hurry lol. But they wear really comfertable and have a nice finish.

For the future I hope I am able to order more Queen-size Bodyline products because they stole my heart.

Shipping: 5/5 Ordered 10/24, shipped 10/26, arrived 10/30. So fast and well wrapped.

Thank you Bodyline!
