THIS is what I got. Sorry for the bad photos, I was taking proof photos as soon as I got them late at night for Martin that something had gone very wrong. You can see how off it looks, and to add insult to injury I recieved this very close to my birthday in late May. The length was supposed to be a normal length, there was no “long version” or anything, hence the photo comparing it to the Vilma OP. I’m only 5’3” and do not want a long dress.
Adding to the sadness, you can see intense boobloafage despite the OP saying it supported 88cm bust and 74cm waist - I’m only 82 / 66, this is ridiculous. Size 2 was 88-102 bust, 74-85 waist, so of course I didn’t get that size. I can’t find it anymore but there was a sample picture on a girl that was the normal length. Martin admitted later that many had sizing issues and the dresses were too small. The sleeves are ginormous, the bodice far too small even with it’s sad shirring, the dress way too long and messed up, and the print ended up being an ugly almost light green grey color instead of just monochromatic grey - this is the only thing that I find is my fault as you can kind of see that in the initial stock photos.
I didn’t push for a refund as this was my first ever bad experience with lolita, and I was so confused as to why it went so wrong. It’s still in my closet, and I don’t even know how to sell it. You’d have to be MM / VM size to fit it nicely, but it’s a very long cut that generally taller girls favor. It just makes me look stumpy, boobloafy, and sad. And it cost so much, but I doubt I could sell it for anything.
I could probably have it altered and fixed, true, but after how much I spent on it I just don’t want to invest more into this failure. Was it an error dress? An embaressed last minute thrown-together mess? Are all of them like this? I’ll never know as I haven’t seen anyone else get this online.
