Bodyline L072

Back center length 36cm
Bust 80-100cm
shoulder length 36cm
Sleeve length 62cm















Here's my thoughts on the L072 cardigan.
Firstly, I have loads of problems getting the right cardigan, I suppose maybe my torso is small and they have to be cropped to give me the right silhouette but most cardigans are like boyfriend cardigans on me.

This cardigan was suggested to me a few times and not only did I buy just one, I bought 3, red, pink and sax.
Closer to my original size 110cm bust I could this cardigan was a show on me (looked horrible) and leaving it open looked silly but I kept onto them, when I got to 100cm later on they fitted a bit better.
100cm is definitely the max and I wouldn't really recommend for bustier girls. I have some photos to show it closed and open.


As you can see it's very very cropped on me, it's actually higher thank I'd like and that open with the bow closed doesn't look bad but open with it not tied looked a bit silly.
For the price I think it's a nice staple in a lolita wardrobe but - the sax isn't sax, it's like grey offwhite blue and I was not a bit impressed at all.

Bodyline L144 in 2L review

Size
2L
Back center of length 99cm
Bust 92-100cm
Waist 76-82cm
I bought this JSK second hand online before the restock, the seller said to me "oh yeah 103cm max bust, you'll be fine"
Unfortunately I wasn't, I'm just about the max bust listed at 100cm and even without a padded bra and all the corset lacing taken off it's painfully tight, my waist it above the listed by about 5ish cm I'm not sure if that's making it worse but it's in the chest I feel it, not in the waist.

I also included a full length photo, I'm 158cm tall and found it to be quite long and even with my puffiest petti didn't seem to bring it to the right length I'd like. These photos were taken the same time as the others and was feeling really hot so I hadn't the biggest one on at this time, it made me feel like a blimp.


Here's the tag to show the size and I did a flat measurement to show the shirring unshirred, it didn't stretch very much. The only way I could wear it is definitely by modifying it.

 
Overall it's a wonderful dress, can't say much else since I hadn't really worn it much.The details are lovely and it's not heavy or too light. If anyone would like more detailed photos I'd be more than happy to take some.

Bodyline L348 review

I did it again, same JSK, two colours. I think this is a really good basic piece so I hope to get a good bit of wear out of it.







I got 2L since 4L and the colours I wanted were out of stock and I was a bit wary.
2L - Bust 94-104cm, Waist 80-90cm, Back center of length 96cm
The bust is fine but I was kinda hitting the max on the waist depending on the day. I asked in the Lolita Q&A group (that I admin) and was told due to the duel shirring I should be okay ... and they were absolutely right! There's plenty of room in dress and it's quite comfortable. I took all the back shirring out and tightened at the front and this looked the best on me.



It's a fairly heavy dress and IMO the material is really good, the petti I had couldn't really keep it up so I know to use the other one instead. Lace wise I'm not a big fan but I'm pretty picky on that, not the quality as much as the style, I like small lace but it's not really noticable in photos, you really have to be up close.

For the price I think it's fantastic and would highly recommend it others considering it to buy it.

I took a ton of photos, apologies for the very basic co ord but I'm not feeling too well and wanted to get it done ASAP.

G&G Diamond Black Circle Lenses (Blue Eyes)

G&G Diamond Black
I bought these lenses over a year ago but hadn't a chance to wear them yet. I had wanted a different pair but they were out of stock so chose these ones.

 


The first eye I put them into it stung a good bit, the second eye wasn't really taking it but when it did it didn't sting.
I wore them for over an hour and found them fairly comfortable, there was a small bit of stinging but nothing major, it could have been my mascara. They were removed very easily.

I was happy with the look they gave too, it looks much better when edited with a photo app, the extra darkness makes it look completely black.

Here's some photos, sorry for the doubles.

Overall I'm very happy with these and hopefully will be wearing them at Halloween.

My Lolita Dress Blouse Review

Hello again.
I made my order of  Dream of Lolita Sweet Princess Blouse on the 9th of August and received my custom order on the 26th of September and was tracked, it came into Dublin last Tuesday and to my door on Friday morning.

Here's the original item  

And here's some proof photos
 
 



The measurements I gave to them were (in cm): Bust circumference - 105/ Waist circumference - 98
Shoulder width - 40 / Sleeves length - 56
Height - 158 / Ideal blouse length - 53 Leave a Note: Upper arm circumference - 36cm Wrist circumference - 18cm Neck circumference - 39cm Hips - 125cm Please contact me if anymore measurements are needed. I'm currently 95ish cm bust and 85cmish waist but I don't mind anything being bigger since it's easily fixed. When I tried it on there was a good bit of room in the back but my mother maintains it was "made for me" so she thought it suited me really well.

I took some flat measurements to compare the blouse measurements I gave to the actual product.
   

So the bust was 55cm flat (110cm), the waist was 50cm flat (100cm), my blouse length was >50cm and my width was 40cm.
I wouldn't have noticed the bust and waist as you can imagine from the size I am, imo they imagined I was busty (which I'm not) and gave me a bit of extra room which is fine, even with the extra room it's not hanging off me.
The length I thought was a bit short. It's okay but unsure if I'll be able to tuck it into a skirt and really don't like it left out over. The shoulders were on the dot and was happy with that part.


 So next is - quick worn photos! Please ignore the grey skirt I had on with it, it was the closest thing to hand.
 
 

 
So overall how do I feel about my purchase?
I would give it a 9/10 for the blouse itself and the service provided.

I would have liked it a little bit longer, for the price it's a pretty good blouse. I finally have one that fits around the shoulders properly lol. The bows and pom poms that were included are the cutest little things! I will definitely use them in other co ords.


Shipping wise, it took a long time and while I wasn't particularly in a rush, it felt like forever because I was excited!
What I didn't mention above was MLD replied to me on a regular basis when I had PM'd about delays and such and if they hadn't time would still reply to say they would reply again on another day, I was very happy with their customer service.

I would recommend this blouse and MLD, maybe not if you're in a hurry or if you are ask for faster shipping, I'm a happy customer and will be purchasing again soon! <3
