Can we talk about /cgl/ topics in conjunction with eating disorders?
Has lolita helped you feel more confident in your skin?
Has cosplay made you want to slim down so much that you started restricting and over exercising?

Anything to that effect. I think that cosplay/jfashion can really go either way in relation to eating disorders....they can either inspire confidence or make you feel terrible about yourself. I'm curious to hear other people's experiences with them.

I'll post my story later in the thread.

To be quite honest, if it weren't for lolita I would feel very comfortable with my chub. AP gets bigger, which is a plus, but some older pieces which I adore are too tight and I want to lose weight for them.
It doesn't hurt to get slimmer and I'm enjoying my new fitness routine, but I mostly do it for lolita.
On the other hand, whenever I'm at the gym and consider finishing early, I think "Nah, if I don't stick to my routine I'll never comfortably fit into Cinema Doll!"

I didn't really start getting into lolita until after I lost most of my heft, but holy shit did it make me feel amazing to be able to fit. I didn't get the whole 'lolita does plus size now' memo, plus I wanted to be cute when I actually felt my body was cute. My body has Japanesey proportions when at healthy weight, so being able to fit AP is like a dream.

Cosplaying is like magic now, I can totally be the hoy guy, and I actually look like a hot guy. It's also gotten up my motivation to actually work on my costumes and sew better. I'm entering my first cosplay competition this winter.

I'm quite thin, and people have always felt the need to comment how men won't like me if I don't gain weight, how ugly I look with tight clothes or if my parents ever fed me properly. I avoided dresses and skirts and overall showing my cleavage (or lack of) for years.
Well, when wearing Lolita, I show no cleavage anyway, but I've never felt prettier because people, regardless of their reaction to the fashion, concentrate on my coord instead of my body. I feel like Lolita is friendlier to a range of sizes than before, and I've not felt the need to overeat.

I would probably feel pretty confident if it wasn't for cosplay. I've never been overweight, but I used to be a little chubby (still with normal average BMI). I hated it so much that I only started doing 1-2 cosplays a year and going to 1-2 cons (compared to previous 5-6 cosplays and cons a year). Got into photography instead, which helped me feel better. Also had bulimia for a while, but it wasn't too severe, and since I lived with my parents they forced me to eat normally.

It's been a couple years since then, I've lost a good amount of weight and I'm nearly underweight now. It's probably because I don't eat that much and check calories religiously. That's probably a start of an eating disorder right there.
However, I'm feeling a lot more confident in my body. Still going to lose some weight, tho. In terms of cosplay there are new insecurities now that my weight is not an issue. I still don't cosplay too often since I feel like my face is too unattractive.

During the years I've become a semi-professional photographer, and feel more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. Taking nice pictures and making cosplayers feel beautiful and confident makes me happy. I wasn't confident or didn't feel beautiful when I cosplayed, but I hope that my pictures help others to do that.

I was ana/mia after I got into lolita, but not as a result of it. Like a lot of people who develop eating disorders, it started out as a simple, necessary diet- I was a stone (about 14 pounds) overweight. I ended up paranoid about eating food and lost over 5 stone, during the course of 9 months. This was 6 years ago, now I'm at the higher end of my 'healthy' weight, and all the fashion is doing to me is making me desperate for ana again. I ate an egg 3 hours ago and still feel shitty. I think if I was just someone who wore average fashion, I would still be this paranoid over my weight.
ED's such a wild ride wooo

No ED to speak of, but lolita was the primary motivator for me to lose weight. I spent so long being fat and thinking I was totally normal, because all my peers would say I looked normal to them, and vanity sizing kept me blissfully unaware of how big I was getting. Also I'm kinda tall for a girl (almost 5'8") so people always assumed I weighed less than I actually did. I never even owned a scale.

When I started getting interested in lolita, that's when it hit me that I was big. I would see all these dresses, but nothing fit my measurements. I had basically never experienced that before. Things got really bad when not even any of my normalfag clothes fit me anymore. At my highest weight I was 195lbs. I've made it to the low 120s now. I would like to get to 110-115. I have loose skin and I look super gross, but I can actually fit into Victorian Maiden now, one of the first brands I fell in love with. Hopefully I can afford surgery one day.

I'm about 20-30lbs overweight for my height, but still fit into most of the brand I want with room to spare; I'd like to lose the weight so I can fit into older and unshirred pieces. Lolita has definitely been my motivator, but it's a good thing, because I gained most of that extra weight in a really short amount of time.

I'm by no means super confident in how I look, but I am also not crying over it all the time. I have lost some weight, have some more to go, but my goal isn't to be stick-thin. I just want to lose all this weight I put on, really.

I already had an eating disorder about nine years ago, but when I was diagnosed and understood I was way too skinny and didn't had a healthy mind I just ate a lot of stuff and the next year was at normal weight again. So I never felt like it was very serious.

However, three years ago we had to move and I lost my job and became depressed. I was sort of taking the control over my body again (yeah it does give you that feeling that you can do at least something). I got into cosplay around that time again and it was an easy goal to look nice.
So since then I've been watching my weight again, but I always just had something left from the eating disorder I guess.., I am almost never happy with my legs even when I don't care at all about chubby girls, I even think they look cute. Maybe Japanese stuff did take a part in it because I'm always jealous at that asian people are usually so tiny and skinny.
Now I wear lolita and I still manage my weight, even when I could grow 2 sizes and still fit brand. Sorry for all the chubby people, I really feel guilty about that sometimes that I care too much about it.

It's been kinda the opposite for me, though I never got underweight so it probably doesn't actually count but it definitately wasn't making me any healthier.
During first year of uni I started skipping meals and having nothing but coffee for weeks cause I felt so overwhelmed and needed some kind of control in my life but since I started bulking up my wardrobe (and actually wearing it) I've had a healthier outlet and put on a bit of weight. I can still fit brand easily but I have one oldschool skirt that I havent had the chance to wear as its too small.
I'm going to try and lose the extra weight the proper way this time cause I need my brain for post-grad.

Currently in one, I (almost) only eat when I go to meets, or just simply walk around with my friends in lolita.
It makes me feel so good, these are the clothes I want.
