Okay so I'm not the smallest of lolita's, 30.5 inch waist....
and I'm wondering, would this type of skirt flatter or burn me?
I mean I'm thinking that it'll flatter considering it'll push down my pudge right? But then again what if it makes my waist look thick or something? I have a small frame its just my pudge [the pouch under your bellybutton haha mind my slang thats what we call it] thats the problem. I'm really tempted to buy this skirt because its gorgeous but I'd want to wear it over a blouse. I'm also worried that if I wear it under a blouse it'll look funny too...
I was also wondering if anyone has ever worn a corset under a lolita dress before?
I'm going to have to because I couldn't find a good replica of the Furisode Yukata, so I just bought the original [knowing my waist size is 2 inches too big...] but with a corset my waist size becomes 27 [WOW!] so I'm worried that when I sit down my fat will just create an unsightly buldge...I've worn it under my other lolita dresses and you cant see anything since the buldge happens at the pudge, and thats covered by the poofy skirts [^__^ thank you!] but still, I've heard this dress gives a lot of people trouble, especially with the obi. And I'm worried that I won't be able to breathe...at all.
I mean I know it's a small price to pay to look good but sitting isn't flattering..nor is it any easier to breathe. I also wondered if maybe I could create some shirring in the back of the bow on the obi to make it allow maybe just an inch or two more to fit my waist size and replace the elastic on the skirt? Or would that just look horrible?
final question [sorry there's so many >__< my convention is coming up and I have to wear this and I'm scared I'll do it wrong] What do I do with everything else about me?
I've already decided on wearing rocking horse shoes and wear some stylish red lipstick [geisha look haha I'm korean, I might not be able to pull it off] and my hair is jet black. But I'm confused as to how to style it. From the model's pictures she's just keeping it down but it looks weird to me..as if it's just "ehh we don't know what to do so just leave it down!" and I want it to be a collected look. I don't want to put my hair all up since I hate my ears, and I don't want to leave it all down and curl it either. I was thinking half up half down with a nice red bow? But then I wanted something classy and not boring so I thought a nice bun on my head with some hair down and curl the bottoms and tie a big red bow around my bun like this picture:
is this a yes or a HECK NO! @__@
