Hey there! I’m still asking about L305, because I just have so many questions. Sorry !! Now that I have the length confirmed (60 cm from the bottom of the waistband to the bottom of the skirt), I need to decide on a petticoat.
1: This one which looks, from the first photo, to be cheap but from the rest of the photos looks to be just fine. It’s listed as being 42 cm.
2: This one which definitely has a lot more poof. This one is listed as being 46 cm.
So, first of all, is that alright? 15 cm (~6 inches) seems like quite a large gap between petti and skirt length. Can I order them from taobao or should I order from a different shopping service and try to order the length custom? And my second question is which petticoat you advise. I don’t plan to really wear it often at all, so it wouldn’t be getting too much use. Should I go with the poofier/more serious one (2) or would the slightly flatter one (1) be just fine?
Thank you so much!!

I have the second one and it’s by far my favorite petti I’ve ever owned. I’ve had it for a few years and it’s very versatile I’ve never had any trouble with it being too short or too fluffy or anything like that. Keep in mind that when you put a skirt over a petti and some of that space it taken up the skirt actually gets a little shorter as it’s being pushed up so you don’t want your petti to be too long. The length the fabric measures flat isn’t necessarily going to be the same length you see when you’re wearing it with a petti.
