Confident Lolitas

If you're a Lolita, when you think about brand clothing, the first things that usually pop into your head are a series of numbers - waist size, hip size, bust size, even measurements that you didn't even know existed. Quickly followed by these numbers is, of course, the all important bottom-line price in dollars, euros or yen.

Now, let's be honest - it can get kind of daunting after a while. It begins to feel like no matter what you do, you'll never be right for the clothes and brands that you idolize. You're too big, or too small. You don't have enough money, but feel like you'll be ridiculed if you consider knock-offs, or flex your (possibly underdeveloped) sewing muscles. Your chest is too big, or too small. You're too tall, or too short. You've got pimples, or rosacea, or you wear glasses with thick lenses.

Well, guess what? If any of the above categories apply to you, you're part of the vast majority of the population - and there's nothing wrong with that.

confident_lolis is a community for us Lolitas who are a little bit self-conscious about the way we look all dressed up. You can find tips there on how to cover up your flaws, or embrace them; you can find suggestions on how to get into that 76cm skirt you've been pining over in a healthy and moderated way. You can read stories from other Lolitas who feel the same way as you and who face the same problems, and get advice from those who have gone through the same experiences and triumphed over them.

I hope to see you at confident_lolis soon!
