Very new lolita here. I've only gotten into it 2-3 month ago. I had a question about bloomers.
How important are they to dressing lolita?
What do they add?
What are the pros and cons?
What do some lolitas get short bloomers as opposed to something closer to knee length?
I recently wore lolita for the second time to the Botanical Gardens Orchid Show in the Bronx (NYC) and it was on a day where it was godawful windy and very cold. I wanted to wear some plain, black shorts under my dress, because even though I had on tights and an underskirt, due to the shape of the dress it was doing nothing for the cold. I realized that if I were wearing a pair of bloomers, I might have been just a bit warmer.
What is a good material to have your bloomer made out of that would keep you warm in the fall and winter and does anyone know a good company/person to order from?
