Here are my most recent random orders I'm still waiting on. I already got the purse though and I'm very happy with it.
may just be me but I'm having such a hard time finding mature yet cute bikinis...I hate my stomach so a high waist is a must, but its so hard to find a pair that isn't granny-pants at the bottom, way too little material or way too 'kawaii ruffle/ruche overload'I mean I can find some that I like, but then they have only 1-10 sales and/or 0 reviews and I def don't trust thoseanyone get any cute swimwear recently that they're willing to share/review?
Super small haul for me, but I'm rather excited to see if the length on these will suit me. If these turn out nice I'll be getting the darker versions as well.

Small order, not expecting the lace to be very good but I just need it to draft the pattern for my full lace cap before I drop the big bucks on good lace
>>10212514link for the skirt in top left. Also please review the pastel shirts when you get them, they've been on my list for a while but I questioned the fabric.
>seller refunded your order because it's out of stock>can't find anyone else selling it at the same low price
>>10212558>>10212558It's not a bikini but I recently got this swimsuit. I was a little disappointed with it though. some of the ruffles started to come apart after one trip to the pool, and the bows on the waist were pink instead of white when they showed up. I think aliexpress swimsuits are really hit or miss since they have to hold up for swimming so they can't be poorly sewn together at all.
>>10213449At least your seller refunded it, a seller apparently cancelled the shipment and is not responding to any of my messages
>>10212558Bodyline has some pretty cute swimsuits right now for around 12usd, mostly high waist bikinis
Recently got these two in the mail
>>10212558Have you tried looking in normie fast fashion stores like forever 21? The high waist style is getting popular again
>>10213588as a 27yo I'm looking for a more 'mature' version of cute, though that swimsuit is adorable! sorry to hear about the quality. maybe you can sew the ruffles back down yourself?>>10213594>>10213623I bit the bullet and just decided to go for https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32858525368.html?spm=a2g0s.90423220.127.116.11ea74c4d0a7XdT in yellow and https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32917632803.html?spm=a2g0s.9042318.104.22.168ea74c4d0a7XdT in whitenow just wait and hope they fit!
>>10212514could i get a link to the heart purse, and maybe some more of your thoughts on it?
>tfw i got my sister as addicted to aliexpress as i am
>>10213610these both look horrible anon, especially the left one. are they better irl?
>>10213813Uh what? The left one does look suss but the right one looks pretty typical for a casual dress. Wrong thread?
>>10213877nta but they do look really bad.
>>10213813 wow I didn't think they looked horrible. I really like wearing the black one for casual outfits, Although I wear the moon bow on the waist rather then the neck like the model. Its comfy and I get a lot of compliments on it. The blue one looks ok but the fabric is a little shiny which gives it a costumey look + the fit is really weird so I was kinda of disappointed by it.
>>10214199i think the black one is pretty cute personally
>>10212558Have you looked at all the non ali "retro" stores?
>>10214199I have the black one in the short-sleeve version and I love how comfy it is too!One question though, do you get the issue where the bottom-most button just kind of unbuttons itself whenever it wants? It keeps doing that to me and I don't know what to do to fix it. It's not an issue of fit because it sits a bit loose just like the model picture, but like the buttonhole is too big or something so the button just slips out.
>>10214467I did have that problem..... I think I just put a safety pin on the inside to kinda force the button to stay in place. Kind of a lazy solution I guess.
>>10213749I re-checked the listing and I guess its not available anymore....but here is the link anyway in case they re-stock soon. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32958078367.html?spm=a2g0s.9042322.214.171.1248b4c4dl72vtT
Does anyone have any favourite stores for craft supplies? Particularly resin molds, glitter and all of that?
I've gotten into this seriously stupid conflict with an Ali seller. Local postal services refused to import an item because the thought the declaration was faulty (the rep claimed that it was in Chinese rather than English), so they sent it back to the seller. I tried to ask for my money back from the seller and they gave me this rather confusing reply.I get it if they don't want to refund the shipping fees, but the items are being returned to them so those should be refunded. So do I just open a dispute for each item in my 20+ items order or can I do something else?
Does someone know how to disable this type of notifications? There is zero info on google.
>>10218859Settings > notifications > app permissions > aliexpress > disable
>>10218872Too radical. Then I don't receive sellers messages if we'd talk about discounts or messages about arriving packages.
>>10218891you could just check your messages daily then?
>>10218891Don't you get emails about those?
>>10217394>>10217465Thanks, I'm going to do that and see if it works.
>>10213610Link to the black one, please?
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32950198174.html?spm=a2g0s.90423126.96.36.19944c4dNfMtECThis pinafore dress is fucking amazing. 10/10
>>10220450Looks like a 2piece set. Have you bought this, anon? I've had my eye on a few things from this store and they're quite pricey, but if the quality is up to par I might give them a try.
Has anyone bought leotards of ali before? How did it go?
>>10220614As in, one for dance/exercise? Or do you mean a bodysuit meant to be worn like regular clothing? Or just something to wear in the bedroom? I wouldn't expect any AE leotard to be too opaque or well-made, plus with Chinese sizing the torso part might be a little short
>>10220518It is a two piece, yes, and I do own it. I was worried cause their sizes in general seem to run small, but this one fits fairly comfortably. The embroidery looks really nice, and the material is pretty thick. It's a little to warm to get much summer use, but it'll be amazing in autumn. My only gripe is that the torso bit is a litttttttle bit short, but it's nothing too drastic. It just means wearing the skirt slighty higher than your natural waist if you do up all the buttons. Generally I'm quite impressed with it.I love a lot of their items and am kinda tempted to get one of the long embroidered sweaters, if I feel like treating myself when it gets cold again.
I am fairly newb to lolita and hope this outfit will look as good as I imaging it too. I'm waiting for these;https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32417367127.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.79b13c00s4u3KXhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/32982334326.html?spm=a2g0s.90423188.8.131.52764c4dHn3Z8Whttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/32954606620.html?spm=a2g0s.90423184.108.40.206424c4duhYBoWhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/32772195004.html?spm=a2g0s.90423220.127.116.11424c4dUTXp76
>>10221323anon I been eyeing this stupid donut dress for ages. Please tell me the quality when you get it.
>>10221662I will. Pray for me. Especially since on sale
>>10221700praying for good quality and the cord look cute
So this is the first time I'm seeing contact lenses being sold on Ali? Maybe they were there for a while but I never stumbled upon them. They are crazy cheap and seem pretty sketchy, will keep ordering from Pinky/Uniqso.
>>10221323super cute anon!
>>10221705For any anons that might see these kinds of listings and be tempted it is recommended not to buy any medical devices off ali as they aren't guaranteed to comply with safety standards
Are there any legit lolita Taobao resellers on Aliexpress? Is it worth it to buy from them if I just want a couple of items and making such a small order through an SS would be unreasonable?
>>10221705I'd avoid getting contacts on Ali because I'd rather not go blind
Anyone know of bento boxes that dont look boring but also dont look childish? Im okay with a gudetama or a cats paw, but most of them are designed for children :/
>>10222091Look for wooden ones. They aren't microwave safe but they look really nice imo.
>>10221662I owned the donut dress and it's cute but is very small and fits awkward if you have above like an A cup. I ended up giving it to my little cousin and it's adorable on her.
>>10222893goddamnit. Fuck my asshole, of course you have to be part of the A cup club to wear it. Thanks anon, you save me from hating myself for buying it.
>>10222893But I am a C cup :C There are multiple listings of this dress so we can see. Hopefully all is good.
>>10223137>>10223141Binders are always an option
>>10223184or you know, sports bras
Update on >>10216802. The seller didn't respond in time and I won my 26 disputes.
>>10223337Sports bras will not get you down to an A cup if you have big breasts.
>>10224236And binders will just hurt you. Just buy something that actually fits you
>>10224254Binders don't hurt if you use a good quality one in the correct size. The gc2b one is great.
>>10223141The letter cup doesn't mean much without the band btw... A 30C vs a 42C are very different. A 30C is smaller than a 38B for example.Not directly related to your post, I just want to share how bra sizing actually works so people have better idea of their size
I've been out of the wig game for a while. What are good shops for wigs on Aliexpress/Taobao these days? Looking for natural style and color primarily but also interested some natural style wigs with interesting color, especially with ombre effects etc.
>>10224258>still believing that lie
>>10225285This shop on Taobao has good looking wigs, haven't ordered from them yet but probably will soon: https://sankins.tmall.com/category.htm?spm=a312a.7700718.w4010-14941275599.2.319613d70v8sAs&search=yThey have a lot of ombre and dark root-styles, and their wigs also look good in user photos.sage for not being Aliexpress
Has someone made custom acrylic charms through ali before? I have no idea what would be best, I've checked some stores but I wanted extra opinions
>>10226164You should ask the people in the artist alley thread about printing acrylic charms
Recently boughtKeychain got. Waiting still on everything else.
>>10227040cute keychain, do the notches have a use or are they meant to be decorative?
>>10227084Not that anon but it looks like it might be a headphone cord holder.
>>10227448Oh yeah, makes sense
>>10227040Link to the harness, belt, chain, and socks?
>>10227040Can you link the keychain, anon? It's so cute.
>>10227890>>10227880Harness - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33024911838.html?spm=a2g0s.9042318.104.22.1688e4c4d3bwpohBelt - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32828851758.html?spm=a2g0s.9042322.214.171.1248e4c4d3bwpohChain - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32989381614.html?spm=a2g0s.90423126.96.36.1998e4c4d3bwpohSocks - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32891724811.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.651e3c00pl4ZpeKeychain - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32922059907.html?spm=a2g0s.90423188.8.131.528e4c4d3bwpohKeychain is just as in the picture. Can recommend!
>>10221662I've also owned this dress for a long time, it does run a little small, but for me it fits fine. The only issue I have with it is that the lining is not very good quality, so it feels hot to wear while not being flexible or forgiving. Otherwise the dress looks just as good in real life as it does in the pictures.
>>10212511Sorry for shitposting but in the new update I can’t see my freebies anymore. It was so neatly organized and you could see whqt I didn’t won even!
>>10232258Nvm btw. I found it, jeez I’m retarded. Ignore me ladies.
>>10232263Where did they move it to? I'm rarted and can't find it
>>10221662So the material could be better but not too bad. Seems to have a mild stretch to it. Boobs are not what sits awkwardly. The straps are in the wrong place so I will look at getting them altered. The straps sort of act like norm straps but are too much in the centre at the front and the back has them set widely.
Is there a list of Chinese Lolita brands that sell on aliexpress anywhere? Or do they all just sell via taobao?
Does anyone have links to cute Pokemon or Moomin lunch bags? All the ones on Amazon are very small.
Some washi tape with beautiful traditional Chinese designs for those of you who love stationary(plz don't think this is spam auto spam detector)https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32847592502.html?
are there any qualitt wigs on aliexpress at a reasonable price? looking for a super light gray one thats around bust length
>>10233340Can you be more specific? Human hair? (Remy or not?) Synthetic? A blend? Lace front? 360 lace? Full lace? Silk top? Hard front/no lace? What's your maximum price?
>>10233553synthetic, i guess. its going to be a silver white wig. im not sure about most of these terms. I was thinking $60? would be a good starting point?
>>10233565Remy is a type of human hair fiber. Blend means it's a mix of synthetic and human hair. Lace front means the front of the wig has a portion of ventilated sheer fabric to create a realistic hairline. 360 is the same but all around the edge of the wig, it's good for ponytail styles. Full lace means the whole wig is ventilated sheer fabric. Hard front means no lace. Silk top means the top is a different fabric to make the part even more realistic. My pic has a lace front on the left and a hard front on the right.If you want bangs, a hard front is your best bet. They usually range from $30 to $50 on american stores. If you need the hairline to show, you may want a lace front. They tend to start at around $60 on american stores but you can get them for less if you wait for a sale.
>>10233917wow thanks for that, i never knew all of these intricate things. so basically youre also saying buy local and dont bother with ali for wigs?
>>10233960Not necessarily, just giving you a point of reference for price, since at the budget point you said you could get something from a western store where it's probably a bit more expensive but you can more easily find reviews and be sure what you receive and what you expect. On Ali you can find cheaper wigs, but it's also a gamble whether or not it will be the quality, size or color advertised.
Nothing in this thread so far is any good.
>>10234687Then add good stuff?
does bobon21 have an official aliexpress shop?
What's the one thing you've bought on AliExpress that you end up using the most? For me it's probably this stupid little travel cosmetic bag. I actually end up using it a lot and it's big enough to fit a ton of stuff in it but small enough to not be a pain to travel with. $5 well spent.
>>10237874It's kinda stupid but I got a controller-shaped handle that you can put on your phone and it's way more comfortable to play mobile games with
>>10237874One of those stupid "tactical" belts (because it's very easy to adjust), or a really cheap shirt I bought with some janky embroidery
>>10237874My moomin purse and my resin molds. Purse is fairly new but since it sees daily use it's the most used.
>>10237874Almost anything like that I'd buy it off taobao, it's generally cheaper with a bigger selection, and I'd usually also buy cheap stickers and washi tape (again, better selection on taobao. In particular I like those stores where you pay like 2rmb for a single repeat of washi tape so you aren't stuck with 5 metres of it, regardless if it's cute)For Ali I mostly reserve it to things I can't order off taobao. Mostly glitter powder, resin liquid and powder things which can't be shipped through taobao's shipping. Plus nail accessories, which are frequently blocked for international shipping on taobao.
I bought this and really hope its okay
>>10237874Like other anons have said, silicone molds and glitter. Also I'm the one who purchased the hackle in >>10212778, it's way cheaper than any hackle I've seen sold anywhere else and does what it needs to do
>>10238407Forgive my ignorance but what is it for?
is it safe to buy lingerie from this place, if you wash it before wearing of course?I know stds and stuff only survive on human beings but the thought feels nasty
>>10238434It's a wig making tool, used to detangle hair and to blend hair colors (or to blend different hair types; synthetic, human, animal, etc). If you'll forgive the annoying background music, here's a video of the same one in action. A similar tool is used to mix wool colors https://youtu.be/ETE_BsmJYNgI opted for one off of AliExpress because it was a LOT cheaper than any of the ones I've seen elsewhere and shipping on these things tends to be expensive due to the weight and size and the AE listing had free shipping, plus the majority of shops selling wig making tools are located in Europe so shipping to America is extra pricy. In my experience as a wig maker on a budget, AE is great for tools, okay for human and synthetic hair (the human hair is mostly Indian or East Asian which isn't what I'm shopping for right now, and I haven't found much animal hair on AE), and not so great for lace and other foundation materials.
>>10238566Wow, that's really interesting, I'd never heard of it
>>10212511What keywords should I use to be able to find most kawaii book sleeves to read mango, but also regular books for school etc...? >inb4 this is not lolitaMost embarassing behavior.
>>10221705Bought one pair similar to these out of curiosity for the same reason. They were packaged nicely, like ones I was getting for much more before. Visualy they were similar, I put them on, slightly uncomfortable, it goes away after a minute but you can still "feel them" on. Wore them for an hour, a week after Im not blind, but wouldn't risk wearing them for too long for sure
>>10238655Can you tards not risk fucking up your eyes thx
For people who buy contacts; make sure you go to an eye doctor first and get fitted. The material/size/curve is important.
>>10237874I have one of those backpacks with small plastic triangles on it that I tend to use a lot because it's a nice size and actually quite well made.
>>10238528I'd worry more about the terrible fit, quality and comfort than any potential STDs.
>>10224271It always irks me when people forget that band is important to get an idea how big bobs really are and listing a cup size alone will not give an accurate idea of size.
>>10238528Are you retarded? It's brand new clothing, probably the same as you'd get in most online stores given that everything is made in China and every "small business" is just an Ali reseller these days. >>10239224 has it right. You want to read reviews. If your waist is larger than 27 inches, you are probably too fat for most lingerie on AliExpress. You also want to go for stores with high (97%+) ratings and products with lots of reviews, but AliExpress is good about getting your money back in case you do get scammed.
>>10212511anyone knows a good sewing machine brand?
>>10239845I wouldn't buy a sewing machine on Aliexpress, Brother makes good entry level machines and if you want something more serious go with Bernina
>>10239899what about singer?
>>10239900I haven't used one myself but opinions vary, as far as I can tell their industrial/heavy duty machines are good but their beginner machines have mixed reviews
>>10239921ok thanks for the insights
>>10239536does your mom hit you? your anger issues aren't cute honey
>>10239845Don't buy machines off of AliExpress, stuff like presser feet, bobbins, and needles are fine though
>>10239964Addition: those items typically have been similar quality to what I get in brick and mortar stores like Jo-ann's, I got a cheap walking foot from AE and it's identical to the brand name one that came with the new brother machine I got for Christmas. AliExpress in my experience is a good place to buy inexpensive tools for crafts; knitting needles, crochet hooks, pom pom makers, those circular knitting loom things, bias tape makers, all kinds of stuff

Are there any decent tea parties on Ali? I usually get mine from sosic shop on taobao, but I don't really want to make a big order when I just need one pair...
>>10241774Here you go anon!https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32624088756.html
>>10241884Thank you so much, anon! Do you know if they run true to size?
>>10242270I personally always go a half size up when buying on Ali, but I would say they're true to size.
>>10241884these look like the ones I bought, they technically fit but they were so fucking hard they were really painful to actually walk in..
>>10242368Really? They were fine for me. I went looking through the reviews too just in case, but other than one post talking about the straps being uncomfortable, they seemed fine.
Has anyone bought from this seller? Is it safe to buy from them? How reliable are they?
>>10243006maybe it's just me then but it felt like wearing rocks.. as soon as I put them on they felt horrible, didn't even attempt to walk in them
Can someone recommend white safety shorts? The pair I got is sheer/see-through. I don't feel comfortable wearing skirts without them. And black doesn't really work under light clothes that are a bit sheer
does anyone have experience ordering circle lenses off ali? i saw some with good reviews and a good price but honestly it seems a bit sketch.
>>10243081nvm i'm an idiot and just scrolled up, i'll likely not buy lenses from ali and stick to my usual sites.
>>10243059You're probably better of looking at Western retailers.
>>10243250ok so where do I find affordable decent ones?
>>10243396by looking around. We're not gonna spoon feed you other sites. Try amazon.
Aliexpress shops for cute panties?
Hello I'm trying to combine shipping on an AE order (first timer ><), the seller says to submit an unpaid order. How do I do that? Screenshots would be extra helpful because I can't find it at all
