As a whole they’re not tight, they’re usually baggy to have a cute fluffy sort of look, they’re just gathered to your waist (obviously) and at the ends but they shouldn’t be tight. I usually recommend bloomers that are mid-thigh or a little lower. Not short, but not knee-length either. The reason short bloomers are sometimes uncomfortable is because they can bunch up when you sit and stand and the shorter the bloomers the faster they bunch.
Yes, they should be worn at your natural waist, right below where your skirt and petti sit (because obviously you don’t want to layer all the waistlines on top of one another that would probably be uncomfortable.)
If the garters are visible it will definitely look ero, but… are they these bloomers? Because they’re short enough that there’s no reason they would be visible in Lolita anyway, so I don’t see you having any problems unless your skirt is just way too short.
Shorts aren’t going to give you any sort of volume. The petticoat is there to give shape and fluff. Did you mean bloomers? Because shorts can work as a replacement for bloomers, but they aren’t going to be nearly as cute.
I know right? I love bloomers so much.
Please remember to check the tags.
As for comfort, I actually think bloomers are very comfortable. They’re comfortable enough that I sometimes use them to sleep in actually.
As long as they give you the proper coverage that bloomers are meant to give you can wear shorts. They just aren’t as cute and matchy.
Not really. I can’t say I’ve ever seen any sort of bloomers sold at costume stores unless they were part of a full, cheaply made, overpriced costume.
Anywhere between those two is best, mid-thigh to a little above the knee.
How little? Because if they were like, preschool age, you just tell them “That’s not a nice thing to do” and they usually learn their lesson. If they’re older, that’s when you talk to her mother. “Excuse me, I’m sorry, but could you please tell your children that they shouldn’t go around lifting people’s skirts?” At a certain point they should really know better.
On the bright side, at least you were wearing bloomers. And let this be a lesson to all of you who ask why you have to wear them!
