Calling all Tall Lolitas

I'm running a Lolita Panel at San Japan on how to dress for you body type. Unfortunately all of us running it are shorties, so I'm hoping y'all can help. Any advice I could give to tall lolitas would be appreciated. For example - try thigh high socks, or try wearing underskirts or something like that.

OTT prints toned down?

Hello! Wile I've searched through D_L I'd love to see more photos of OTT prints worn in a more classic or everyday type of way, or even just ideas of coords. Is the best way to simply pair printed skirts/dresses with solid colors? Or should some prints just never be worn outside of a Lolita meet-up?

Curious about IW jsk sizing

Hey folks, several IW JSKs list a max bust of 98 and max waist of 81.5.

Do they really work for people with that bust size though? My typical size is like 95 cm (38-39 inch) bust, 79 cm (32 inch) waist.

I'd tried one of their jsk before, but it was a smaller measurement than this and it really didn't work well in the bust area. Has anyone about my size range tried IW jsks? like the Theresia Rose Jumperskirt or any strapped jumper skirt of that size range. Before, I've taken some AP JSKs and changed the straps a bit to lower it on my torso so it didn't look empire waisted on me, and that worked fine... but if the JSK bodice front just doesn't really cover enough area (horizontally) in the bust, it doesn't matter whether I was to modify the straps or not, it just wouldn't fit me well. I really like IW's longer skirt lengths, sooo....

Thanks in advance.

Question about AatP's Vampire Embroiderd Jsk

Hi everyone! I just have a quick question. Does anyone know the measurements of Aatp's Vampire Embroidered Jsk(http://www.babyssb.co.jp/shopping/2012-online-summer-sale/html/108P201.html)? It isn't listed on the website. I'm planning to purchase it, but I would like to know if it will fit before I do (I'm mostly concerned about the length because I am very tall).

If anyone who owns the dress can give me the measurements I'd really appriciated it. Thanks in adavance! ( also is it possible to order items from the Baby online summmer sale through the SF Store? or does it have to be ordered through their Japanese web site?)
