|Sleep shorts are typically cheaper and are often |
decorated with cute patterns.
I always 100% endorse wearing some form of shorts beneath your dress, whether it be a pair of lacy bloomers or plain black short shorts. The wind is an unpredictable foe, and walking anywhere elevated risks exposing those on the lower level to what you're wearing under your coordinate.
However, do I think bloomers specifically are absolutely necessary? No. Wearing bloomers helps to contribute more with the lifestyle aspect of lolita and adds on another layer of frills with the detailing that so many lolitas admire. However, bloomers are really specialized garments that can be replaced with other easier to obtain sport shorts or oftentimes soft and breathable sleep shorts. I never hesitate to use what I have clean on hand for beneath my coordinate.
