Oh there's not a doubt that I'd get the standing option lol.

At that weight, I doubt she stands long, not if you bend her joints much. She will have to be extremely stiff to stand at all, which is going to make her tough to manipulate and fuck. All it takes is for one joint, usually a knee, to loosen to a point it can no longer support the weight of the doll, and reliable standing is over. Jotti here has been standing since mid 2016, but I bend her knees no more than I have to, to keep her standing long as possible.

Jotti looks great! I also like the knife in the background as well.

Just a small update, I’ve spent the last few days testing out a few of the websites that carry the particular doll I’m interested in and I have to admit, Yourdoll.com didn’t leave me feeling very confident in their service due to the lack of communication. So I’m most likely going to go with a different vendor.

Just a quick update. Today I pulled the trigger and ordered the "Jasmine" doll that I posted about. I'm looking forward to receiving her in the near future.  Thanks to everyone for the feedback and info!

Get an insert doll. Much easier to clean.

Yes, I went with the insert option. Now I'm doing research on shoes, sheets, etc. Is it true that placing a pillow under a doll when leaving her on the bed will help keep her shape and prevent flattening of various areas?

Congrats on your purchase! Can't wait to see her. I've had varying degrees of success with the pillows and other propping, but I don't think it can really hurt. Maybe consider a memory foam type of mattress topper if she has to be stored for long...
