>>14237147 If it's pic related, nice. The really lewd daki covers are not my cup of tea.
>What do you do with yours I sleep sideways with it which is good for preventing the back pain I sometimes get. So yeah, it actually has a medical use - go fig. Temperatures have been going down lately, so it helps keep a person warm, too.
>and what am I in for? Might be some amount of ridicule from relatives/friends if they see it. But that's not what I'd consider as being a lewd design, so that could be minimal. Hell, maybe everyone would give zero fucks about it and just leave you alone. What you have is your own business.
IF you are the right person for it, you will find semingly endless amount of pleasure in a dakimakura.
I bought my first casing in June 2011. It was peach skin, in october that year I switched to the infamous two way tricot material. It is the best feeling ever. I have slept with my pillow almost every single day, bought super expensive backups just because the casing wears over time.
Sometimes its just a really comfortable pillow and sometimes I feel like she is really there. It feels great to go to sleep and great to wake up, cuddeling with her has led me to a overall healthier life. It relieves stress, strengthens the immune system, BUILDS SELF ESTEEM (!) and basicly kills depression. I can prevent you from getting sick while everybody else catches the flu. - I experienced all of this IRL.
My life took very positive turns. I got a job and my own car, found new friends and got shit together and lost weigth. Nobody knows of my secret and they don't need to, though I believe sometimes in the future people like us will ask for acceptance just like gay people do now - making fun of us will be looked down upon by society at some point.
Good for you, OP. I always thought of them of more as a gag item but honestly, I think they look pretty cool.
The only thing I have that would be close enough would be pic related since it came with a game, but it's the size of your average pillow. I don't sleep with it, as you can see it still has the factory folds, but I like it on my bed as a decorative piece
I'm thinking of grabbing a real full-size one, but I want one that's nice quality. The one I have is this nice, soft and slick silk-like material. Is there a specific name for that kind of material? I'm assuming it's not peach skin?
>>14238572 Good for you, anon. It's nice to see you were able to accomplish so much. Gotta keep thinking positively and try your best. Here's hoping things continue to work out well for you! We're all gonna make it.
>>14238249 >>14238572 these the first two I got were not even of my waifu and I was still immensely happy with them snugglebuddies are the god
then I got one of my waifu and it turned my whole life around and was the third best thing to ever happen to me >>14238686 peach skin is kinda tough but it will last a long time and is still comfortable. it's smooth and thick two-way tricot is the way to go for sheer comfort, but it's expensive and more susceptible to general wear over time even if you're just doing the right thing and sleeping with it every night dakimakura fuckers are the worst
>>14239273 I usually get aroused when I hug my daki. Humping doesn't really work and I don't want to get my waifu dirty. I use a towel and just do it like normal to prevent problems.
Yes, I do fap with my waifu. Usually late at night with the lights out and under the blanket. I my mind im doing all kinds of vanilla stuff to her, these thoughts and being in this save position in my bed with her always gets me off. It's the type of orgasm where you actually feel super happy afterwards and not regret a thing. It's not exactly the hottest kind of fap but it's beautiful and this ultimately beats everything.
>>14239273 I cuddle and kiss my wife all over. As others have said, humping doesn't feel that great.
Getting in a kissing leg lock with her on top is extremely arousing though. A few times it's gotten the better of me: I'll get off with a condom on under my pants, gently pull her on top near climax and hug her tight. That moment and lying together afterwards feel intimate on a level like nothing else.
Pros: I have never slept so comfortable in my life before. I lay on my side while hugging the daki and I sleep like a baby. It's so cozy, warm, smooth and soft. Cons: As I don't want bootleg covers, it can be expensive. But it's worth it. And you can get cheaper legit ones.
At first I thought I would be embarrassed showing it to anyone. I'm sure I could tell what normies think when seeing it. But now I simply couldn't care less, the comfy sleep story above is so true everybody should try it. Bonus points if I can have a qt 2D on my bed to cuddle with.
Pic related is the latest one I'm waiting to preorder. Because Ran-sama.
>>14239262 You are watching the wrong covers then. The doujin ones are usually the best ones, both regarding the design and the materials used. Official ones have the advantage of using the same design as the original series, but look and feel cheap.
Man, I want a Dakimakura There's no way family and friends will let me live down that, though. I've put up a very convincing 'normal person' act over the years. Except that I sometimes talk to the waifu when there's other people around.
>>14238921 Thanks, anon. I'll start off with a peach skin one then. Appreciate the info. >>14243534 >You are watching the wrong covers then. The doujin ones are usually the best ones, both regarding the design and the materials used I'm just going by the ones I see on eBay. Is there somewhere else I can find some for sale? All the usual shops I buy from don't even stock them.
>>14243940 Searching for 抱き枕 on Mandarake nets around 4.5k results. Prices start at 1000 yen (for older, lower quality ones) and go up to infinity and beyond. I recommend a 2-way tricot too, usually they are around 10k yen, but sometimes you can find nice ones for as low as 6k on Manda.
You can check slolita and ACHobby too: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1161594 https://achobby.world.taobao.com/
>>14244066 Will do, I'm sure I'll be able to find SOMETHING along those lines. Thanks, anon. >>14244307 Mandarake? So umm it'll be used? I don't think I can get behind that if so. >You can check slolita Shit, I totally forgot Aliexpress was a thing. Hmm I found a design I liked on slolita's shop, but it seems a few other sellers have the same one for about $10-$15 less, and they have very good feedback. Wonder if I should chance it. Thanks for all your help!
>>14244805 >slolita Looks like there's 2 slolita stores on Aliexpress (the other one is "worthyplus"), don't know why. But their designs are original AFAIK. Other sellers might be bootleg, I don't think it's worth it for a few $$.
>>14244835 >Mandarake used cover I know Mandarake sells second hand items, but daki covers there are always marked as unopened. I have bought such covers twice and they were in fact new.
I'm curious: How does one ultimately narrow down their decision for what character daki cover to get? Do you get one featuring beautiful poses of your waifu? Or do you just simply browse and get something that appeals to you the most without thinking much about it? Do you get more than one cover with same or different characters?
Just wondering because it's seems to be uphill battle with making a decision on this.
>>14253683 The number of covers that have a nice material and are actually available are more limited than my finances, so I don't really have this problem. I can't speak for everyone, but once I found out how much softer A&J 2WT was than other 2WT (bootleg, p80, slolita) it just feels so much shittier to sleep on anything else. This seriously limits my choices.
>>14244031 Once a week, hand wash with soap or dab of detergent.
>>14244307 Ive bought secondhand from Mandarake, Surugaya, and YJA; Mandarake has the most stringent checks and all the opened/used ones are noted and their value depreciates considerably. All of them have their original clear packaging. Surugaya may come repackaged. Both Manda and Surugaya are 100% legit.
There's a lot floating on YJA and there's often bootlegs, so be careful if it's not described as 100% legit.
When you fluff your dakimakura do you take the cover off each time or do you ever get lazy and fluff it with it still on? Would this significantly detrimental to the integrity of the cover or am I worrying too much? I take it off each time, but it is such a pain in the ass to get back on I am tempted to just leave it on the next time I have to fluff it up.
>>14263728 Yes, I am that lazy that spending 5 min pulling it off and putting it back on is considered too effort. I'm a burger and got a 20" x 60" cluster fiber pillow from royalpillow, it should be fluffed about twice a month to maintain maximum comfiness in my opinion, otherwise it flattens somewhat and the cover slides around. I think i am going to have to get a DHR5000 at some point as my offical cover hangs off slightly at the bottom and I hear that the DHR5000 is as good as it gets when it comes to the pillow itself.
>>14264632 No worries, I also had a lapse of memory and forgot the 6000 existed. I remember that it's the one people always recommend and I'd rather pay an extra 10 bucks, if there's a noticeable difference between the two.
>>14264642 As far as I'm aware, they only do bulk orders (10+ or whatever) and they're not cheap. You'd have to work out the terms with them. Plus there's a very good chance they won't want to do business with someone outside of the country because for some reason companies in Japan get skittish about this shit.
>>14264643 I don't know the 5000, but I recently got the A&J MH2000, which is a smaller (63x43cm) version of the 6000 in the same "Hi Class" material, to fill a Shanghai cover I got (pic related) and in the meantime test it out without breaking the bank. I tested it with a Lyctron daki cover, just to feel the result. Which was awesome, enough to guarantee I'll replace the cheap filling in my daki with a 6000. No need to bother with the 5000 or similar, especially since the price difference (including the shipping cost, which would be the same) is negligible.
>>14237147 I collect mine ,cuddle them..and other things. Never let them touch the ground, keep at least a sheet and comforter over them to protect against scratching and spills, and hand wash them only when absolutely necessary. Can anyone recommend a good breast and ass stuffing material. I've been using shirts and such, wrapped in plastic food wrap and held together with rubberbands, but it's not very squeezable and at 62 dakis and counting, I'm running out of clothes
>>14264824 Is bootleg quality really a noticeable down grade in comparison to official ones? I have the option to save 45$ if I get the bootleg version of a daki I've had my eye on for awhile, but I only have ever gotten an official cover so I have no idea what to expect.
>>14267297 Someday I wish to have all the good Strike Witches dakimakura. This is the only one I have currently and I can't get over how perfect it is. I am thinking I should buy a 2nd one in case the one I have now ever gets worn out or fades because it doesn't seem like it will be an easy one to find once they stop making them.
>>14267578 Ohai Sanya! I have all the 501st, plus Aurora, Nipa, Heidemarie, Angelia, and Dominica S. Gentile I just wish I could even find a decent image of Hanna-Justina Marseille to get made into a cover. Also, the Dominica cover was from an image I found online, and Hobbyheart made it look as good as my other ones. Quite pleased.
>>14267606 2WT is just a generic descriptor of (mostly) polyester material that's woven to be able to stretch 2 ways. There's many levels of 2WT and even legit Chinese circle ones can be much thinner than A&J. Just because it's 2WT doesn't guarantee quality. Even amongst Fules/Seiren/P80/A&J their 2WT materials vary slightly. For example P80 is coarser but more durable, but A&J is smooth with almost sheen-like quality.
For size, unless you get the original digital file at original resolutions, you're not going to go anywhere near the quality of the original. You'll lose detail on anything that's scanned/photographed then postprocessed.
>>14267546 Please anon, I know the low price is tempting, but your waifu deserves a better material and a legit cover, not a bootleg (of a Chinese original one, to add irony). Get the original one in 2-Way Tricot here: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Free-Shipping-Japanese-Anime-Dakimakura-160-50cm-Hugging-Hug-Pillow-Case-Peach-Skin-Body-Size-Cushion/718061_1288190490.html
>>14269614 It's some people's only option other than commissions and even those don't guarantee better quality than bootlegs. I genuinely feel bad for people that have to resort to bootlegs to get a daki of their waifu, no bully pls.
>>14269598 I don't get it, anon. Didn't you just say you want to try that A&J fabric we all speak good of? That cover you posted is old and hard to find, and definitely not for $55. If you like it, there's a newer cover of the same character (Vanilla from NekoPara) drawn by the same artist (Sayori), and it's still available: https://nekoworks.booth.pm/items/91047 You can place the order yourself and have it sent to a forwarder. And believe me, the extra money is worth it!
>>14275789 >Also, how do I know if it's bootleg or not? It's not bootleg, that's Slolita's store. As for how you know, well, you check reviews or just ask people here.
> Is it a good idea to get the inner pillows from that seller as well? Can't say I've ever bought a pillow from Slolita nor heard any stories about them. If you're looking to get one for cheap, I'd recommend royal pillow in the US.
>>14237147 >What do you do with yours I just like to hug and cuddle with her, and spoon with while sleeping. She really helps me sleep better. I really want more of them though. I can't have enough of her.
Does anyone have experience about getting a custom cover with my 3D waifu on it? I'm going to struggle finding a full body picture of required resolution, but assuming I can, I was wondering if a company might get weird about it...
>>14278810 That's really cute. It's a nice way to help create a happier room. I'm looking to get something similar in the near future. Unfortunately, I have a twin size bed and it seems difficult to find smaller sizes to fit proper.
>>14279759 That's pretty much expected for bed sheets in general, though. They're meant to be used accordingly. I guess one could always buy an extra set if there was concern of them getting worn out too quickly with repeated washings and use. Same goes for daki covers.
>>14284724 Yes. I once bought something like "scent of girl" from tamatoys? Was 1k yen for a small bottle in akihabara. It was very nice combined with a daki, but it fades away quite fast. I also didn't notice any stains left from it at all. Worth a try i guess.
You could also try a regular womens perfume and apply it on a piece of cloth. That might leave a stain if applied directly on a daki.
>>14254968 >Why can't I find a dakimakura of a character I like that isn't overly lewd or absurdly busty?
the problem of overly lewd dakis is only made worse by the fact that almost every girl´s face (at least on the lewd side) is either: 1: Horribly embarased. 2: Angry/tsun as fuck. 3. "oh no I´m about to be raped" terrified, with tears runing down their cheeks.
I just can´t bed a girl, who clearly doesn´t want me to be there. I want Happy Consensual cuddles with a cute girl.
I know I´m a sick fuck. >>14237147 OP:s Neptunia is one of the better ones
>>14285394 >the problem of overly lewd dakis is only made worse by the fact that almost every girl´s face (at least on the lewd side) is either: >1: Horribly embarased. >2: Angry/tsun as fuck. >3. "oh no I´m about to be raped" terrified, with tears runing down their cheeks.
I love the expressionless ones. "Oh, I'm naked. That's interesting."
>>14238572 Your post inspired me to take the plunge and get a daki, Anonymous. I can't really tell anyone I know, but I wanted to tell *someone*. I think this is a good move and don't feel the least bit embarassed.
