curiosity killed the cat you know

So those who were curious about my wa-lolita dress from bodyline [and the accessories] I have finally taken pictures of myself, by myself, with a mirror -___-;; since my boyfriend was "too embarassed" to do it. NOW WITH A STANDING UP PICTURE TOO! jeeze it was hard to not fall!

I think it looks alright without stockings on but I'm not sure how stockings would look with it on yet [I'm thinking about wearing thigh highs since knee highs do NOT agree with my legs at all] And I think perhaps a half up half down style would be best for my hair since that bun idea...no it's too hard. haha I tried and the brushing out aftermath was RIDICULOUS so no!


I posted a review of it on cosmates.jp but I'll post it here as well:

"My waist size is a 30.5 on a regular basis but with a corset it becomes a 27 so I decided to buy it.

Good:
-It fits me! With and without the corset! Its pretty snug but it really defines your waist line and I really like that
-It comes in pieces so you can mix and match what you want to wear
-it makes you feel like a princess ^__^
-it took about a week or so to get it in but the anticipation of it made it feel longer
-The butterflies are like dyed into the fabric! it's really great
-theres like little pouches in the sleeves to put your cellphone and wallet in if you don't want to carry a purse [it doesn't really match with a purse -___-]

Bad:
-It's a little too snug to the point where I do not want to eat while wearing it
-The dressing process is complicating, what people haven't told you is that theres two ties you have to do for the top. And on top of that its a little loose on the chest part. My chest size is a 34.5 and it was still too big. But if I tighten it more it'll be okay
-When I recieved this dress the seams on the right side [on the sleeve] was not complete yet! It was only partly done as if done in a rush, there was no back tracking either to insure the seam won't come un-done. I will not send it in again because I do not have the time. It looks as if Bodyline was in a rush or something and just failed to finish it :[
-The obi, is really for smaller waisted people I'm sorry to say. There's a zipper AND shirring but with the width of my waist the zipper and part of the shirring is visible. Something you cannot see in the picture."


I failed to mention that the zipper is REALLY fragile. I put the dress on my boyfriend and he BROKE the zipper O__O and he's so skinny too! I don't understand. But it's okay now I fixed it :D.



I hope this helps anybody who actually wanted to buy this dress that is in my size range and in general. ^__^;; I did the best I could.
