The YUMETENBO guide ~

Every Gal must have heard of this wonder site and seen other bloggers drooling over the super cute items that are listed there, envying them because they either have the connections or the know-how to buy products from a non-translated popular Japanese site.
Well, here I'm providing you with the basic know-how you'll need to finally order your dream items, too! ♥

Follow up:

First of all, Yumetembo is just one of many, many stores that all are accessible through the RAKUTEN shopping site, to be able to order anything you'll need to register a rakuten account first! Here's my older guide on how to register a rakuten account.
Remember that you need a Credit Card to be able to order! If you have a rakuten account and a credit card linked you can start exploring all the wonderful stores on rakuten! ^_^

Now, open the main page of Yumetenbo:

Take a break. Enjoy the nice colors and the feelings of excitement. This shop is pure love!!

As you can see, the clothes are already divided in different section (and they're even specified in English!) but as soon as you browse through the links you'll see that all the subcategories are still in Japanese... >.<' But don't worry, as long as you don't have a very special item in mind you can find most of the items you like by just browsing the pictures! :D

Look at the main selection in the middle. Yumetenbo actually consists of different sub-stores for different shoppers but recently they put all the sub-stores together to make the navigation easier!

Do you see all the different colors? Each one represents another section.

The hot pink one is the "princess-style" one, you'll love it if you like Hime Gyaru and Sweet Gyaru!
The violet one is called "glamorous". There's many sexy outfits in here, perfect for Agejo Style!
The khaki one is a bit more classical, thus simply called "pretty". It also has cute clothes for Mori or Sporty Gyaru!
The light pink one has very, very cute items, but not as "over the top" as the first section. Perfect for any girly Style!
The mint one ... is pretty self explanatory. =P Cute to browse for "awwws" or for Gyaru Mamas!

So... let's press the princess icon to get to the sub-store:
You'll see that the logo has changed and the colors of the other sub-stores if you want to change.

Check out the "New Item", "Rearrival", Sold out soon links. If you don't know what items you like yet I'd recommend clicking the "Rearrival", because that's the page where popular items that have previously been sold out are listed when they are available again! Popular items = good stuff! ^_~
If you don't want to feel bad, don't press the "Sold out soon" button: You'll either see what items you missed because the only available color is the ugliest one or you'll see that your size has already sold out! >.<'
What else is on the page? There's a cool header that changes picture every now and then: Those are the special categories of that sub-store. (example: In the photo that I posted of the 3rd "Pretty" store you can see the header with the newest boot collection)
Often there's also a publicity for some collaborations of Yumetenbo with Gyaru magazines. If a special collection was featured in the newest Popteen there will surely be a header to the full outfits of the Gyaru models and links to each and every clothing piece.

Now browse to the second sub-store called "Glamorous"

The third sub-store "Pretty"

The fourth sub-store "Girly"

The last sub-store, full of cute children clothing, it even has matching outfits for both Gyaru Mamas and their children!

It's not very hard to navigate the pages, just click on the thumbnails that you like ^^
You'll see the item in different colors and sizes and if you scroll down you can choose the color (mostly written in Japanese but you can also see the photos and compare the Text on the photo with the panel) and the size and press the button to the right!
(The one below is for inquiries about the product)

If you prefer the easy (English) way and are willing to browse the less appealing and also less organized English page, there you are:
The items are the same and you'll actually be able to read the item's description ;P
Anyway, have fun shopping!

This Article is unfinished. I'll keep updating it - so if you have additional questions, feel free to leave a comment! I'll also try to translate part of the navigation so you know exactly what link you have to press to get to the products you're looking for!

nyan~~ that is so awesome. Thankies^^
Well I have checked the site out & all, its great but have not come to order anything yet.

My biggest problem was when they show you the size info.
like this

I don't know what to make of it. Not knowing the language is never easy. T_T

Are you going to explain about size info.
I will have to be careful when I order. (Japanese girls are skinnier) I don't want to end up getting something & it being too tight or so around the butt/breast area.

You're right. Besides spending too much money my second biggest concern is that the clothing wont fit >_<'
I'll update the post with a basic translation of the sizing chart - promised! XD

yeah ^^ that would be awesome.

Say ive got question ive visited one of the many stores, this one is called 'Dreamv'
I looked around & also changed how it sorted the articles. I choose price 'low2high'

amazing ¥1 (€0.01) this is sureal, whats the deal is that the starting price to bid?!
perhaps, maybe?. What do know about that

here is an example:

aah~~ I so wanted to get the Nyanko Buruzonwanpisu (love the way that translated & I still understand)
Did you by any chance buy the cat one piece sweater, like in the picture above?!

Actually, "DreamV" is exactly the name of the Yumetenbo store! You just got on the English version I wrote about in the last part of the guide =P
Well, actually that would be too good to be true - that price is unrealistic, did you notice that the item is sold out? Those items have really low prices, but actually they are simply not available anymore - that's a bit confusing! >.<'
No, I haven't ordered it - but I'm thinking about ordering one (either cat or bunny ears) for room wear! ★ ~

Great guide! Yesterday I made my first order :) but now I'm confused... First of all, I didn't manage to make the order when being logged in - it kept asking me for my address, but the form was for Japanese addresses, so I couldn't fill it in. So I had to order as a guest - is it okay? Also, after my order I got two e-mails: one in English from Rakuten, and the second one (two minutes later) in Japanese from Dreamv. I assume both of them were order confirmations? What do I have to do now? I think I should get another mail from Dreamv saying that they've shipped my order (and showing the shipping costs), am I right? Also, will I have to answer that mail to show them that I'm confirming, or I should just read it and leave it?
Thanks in advance if you answer. Hope you can understand what I wrote :)
