Heads up, Western lolis!

As many of you probably know, the yen is at a 20-year low against the dollar. Five years ago, a 24,000 dress would cost about 240 dollars, but according to The Economist, that same dress would cost 203 dollars today.

What I'm wondering is, do brands have the flat exchange rate of five years ago (about 100-110 yen to the dollar) or do they charge the exchange rate of today? (110-120 yen to the dollar.) If they use the up-to-date rate, I want to take advantage of it before it's too late. After all, saving $40 on a dress is an excellent discount...=3
