So I made my first purchase from One Day in Paradise, which is an Australian Lolita supplier. I purchased a Classical Puppets petticoat from them because I needed one fast. I couldn't wait for the manufacturer to make me a petticoat and wait two months or more for it to arrive.
The packaging that it arrived it was nothing special. The petticoat was folded into a plastic sleeve.
It came along with their business card.
So overall, the shipping was 5/5. I received it on time when they shipped it on the 3rd and I received it on the 5th (of the same month), which was when they expected the package to arrive at my front door. The actual service, I'll give it a 4.5/5. I did feel like there was a lack of communication during my wait for the package to be shipped.
As for the petticoat itself, it's definitely poofy. I'm pleased with the petticoat and I don't really have anything bad to say about it except the fact that it's a little small (but that is because this was made not to my size exactly. I'm between the set sizes that One Day in Paradise offers).
I'd definitely purchase another Classical Puppets petticoat but probably order straight from the manufacturer if I can wait.
