One of the most freeing things I have ever heard (via firecannotkillabadwolf) —

Thank you very much!
If I had to guess, it’s because people have distorted images of what a body should look like due to Lolita being a Japanese fashion. I wear a size 8-10 depending on the clothing brand, and I carry my weight quite well because I’m tall.
But I suppose by Japanese standards, I’m pretty big. So because Lolita clothing doesn’t often actually come in my size (for example, nothing from Mary Magdalene would ever fit me unless they decided to put generous amounts of shirring on it — and Innocent World looks so strange on me because I actually have a bust) I am considered bigger within this fashion community?
But really, my size is incredibly average and fits in with the average type of female body you’d see on the street in Canada.
