Now here is a seemingly innocent question, "Bloomers or no bloomers?"
Are those frilly shorts that no one sees really all that necessary?
Are those frilly things necessary?
Truthfully, no they are not.
Wait, don't get your panties in a bunch quite yet!
For one, modesty. Bloomers specifically are not necessary but shorts of some type are. The style and preference is completely up to you. Most lolita brands are made for a shorter demographic. Angelic Pretty dresses, for example, run shorter than some other name lolita brands. Bloomers or shorts help to cover your assets should you need them to. There is always the occasional unforeseen wind, escalator or dress flip. You never have to worry about with the extra security underneath your frills. I always feel much more carefree knowing I have an extra layer between me and mine.
Why should I wear bloomers?
Two, depending on the style bloomers can actually help to add extra poof to your dresses! There are bloomers that have extra frills to add more volume to your outfit. Who doesn't want more poof?
Thirdly, bloomers are lovely! I love the detail even our lolita "underwear" possesses. They are another way for you to experience this historic, immersive and feminine fashion. It helps make lolita special.
