Regarding the Fatty-Chan comments: That started when I was still hugely into Lolita, around the mid 2000s. It's actually not intended as a pejorative. With that said, intent is not magic, and I understand how someone could be angered by it.

Also, as many Lolitas that walk around in homemade and off-brand crap? People should know not to bitch. What matters most of all is that the outfit is well-made and uses quality materials. Lolita is an expensive fashion, and not everyone works/is wealthy/has a sugardaddy to pay for those things. You have to know how to budget. If Lolita is outside of your budget, don't worry about brand or what some stupid little bint is going to say about you. They likely won't have the nerve to say it to your face. Hint - if you use cheap lace, regardless of the brand/lack thereof, you will be mocked. And considering that Lolita is basically a fashion where it consists of a lot of women and good amounts of money, you'll come across snobs and drama.

I've said this before and I will say it again: Take everything you see on lolita secrets comms with a grain of salt. It is NOT a representative for the entire lolita community and some of them are even troll secrets anyway.

No one really has a real issue or 'hatred' with off brand. If there was any issue with lolitas wearing off brand it would be because a lot of the girls who wear off brand exclusively might not have the best coordination skills (not saying I haven't seen girls make brand look like a hot mess because I absolutely have unfortunately. Makes me sad :v). I honestly don't care what you wear or how big/small you are as long as you look good and it shows your making an effort.

As for bigger girls in lolita... Real talk: people will be talking/thinking about your weight. Lets not lie, this is the real world. But give them something positive to talk about and make your weight an afterthought. Wear a style that fits your body type, get clothes custom made/tailored for you - whatever you have to do. Yes it'll be more expensive and harder but it comes with the territory. A lot of them don't understand this really which is what bothers me. Heck not even some of the smaller girls get that last concept but whateves. xD;;

As for me I prefer to buy brand when I can budget it into my expenses. Its worth the money in my opinion because I know what I'm getting. I know that I don't have to fuss with it to get the right shape or alter it as far as style. It makes it feel more legit I guess, too. I know girls who exclusively wear brand but they don't knock others for buying off brand. I say if it works for you and you look fabulous go for it! The majority of lolitas have a mix-match of offbrand and brand anyway so its no big deal. Things get exaggerated on the internets.
