I'm 25 and a big girl (UK size 16-18 on top coz of stupid bust, 14 on waist). I'm also apple shaped, so lolita skirts cover my big tum, but skim nicely over my hips so I look curvy (in a good way!). I usually only ever wear skirts and cutsews or camis with cardigans (blouses never fit my bust, and I only own one jsk and one op).
Anyway, my husband says I look silly and frumpy T_T and after much arguing and tears it has transpired he likes how my skirts look without a petti as they hang nicely from my hips and still cover my tum. He says the poofiness makes me look bigger than I am/frumpy/silly (although I only have A line pettis) ...and also those weren't his exact words. He doesn't use words like poofyness unfortunately.
I however feel weird without a petti, kinda naked? I'm also worried about looking ita...but do any of you go without pettis on a regular basis? I feel as if pettis look better on slimmer lolis, I think I can go without one and look good, but as I say, I feel weird.
I definitely need help before the weekend, as I don't wear lolita during the week (stupid work!) but this weekend is very special as I'm off to Conduit St to pick up my Vivienne Westwood Rocking Horse shoes and I wanna look nice :D
Thanks for reading <3
