Closet-Child Question

So I've started checking Closet Child religiously recently, after seeing a dream dress of mine for 7800 yen (BTSSB Love Poodle JSK in black), but I've run into a problem. Being a bigger girl, I have to triple-check the measurements of every single dress I come across, and shirring is a fickle thing, varying in stretch from one brand to the next. There's a BUNCH of things I could afford and would want, but when I go to double-check the dress' measurements on lolibrary or something similar, the dress either isn't there, or I have to go wading through everything labled 'gingham switching' to try and find it.

Veterans of closet child, is there an easier way? Am I misreading things or doing it wrong, or has it always been this way? Is my translator just screwing up? I don't want to blow 90 bucks buying it and getting the thing shipped over here, only to find out the shirring is as tight as my purse strings, and I can't zip it up.
