We wanted to do a simple size comparison and posing review with Miyadoll's Little Mocha body, since it's quite a new company and their dolls are not yet familiar to many people, although there also seems to be a lot of interest towards them! Sarg did all the hard work here (posed the dolls and took the photos), I just edited the photos and got the permission to post them here on my blog :)
I've said it before, but I'm going to point out again that we do not have any kind of sponsorship with Miyadoll nor have been asked to advertise them. We simply really like the company and the sculptor Jiwon, so we want to share information about her dolls~
Hopefully some people find this useful! :3
First, a few comparisons!
From left to right:
Souldoll Vito girl (51cm)
Souldoll MSD girl (43cm)
Miyadoll Little Mocha (31cm)
Soom Teenie Gem (28cm)
Luts Tiny Delf (16cm)
Some people have thought that Miyadoll's bodies look very similar to Soom's TG body, but when compared side by side, the differences in the shape and joints can be seen clearly. Little Mocha body is double-jointed, so the joints look different and have a better range of motion than Soom's single joints.

If you'd like to see more photos of a Little Mocha sized girl with any other doll that me or Sarg own, please don't hesitate to ask us :)
Then, let's take a look at how the body poses :3
Again, if you have any questions or are wondering about a specific pose, please ask~
Here the torso and head are tilted forward as much as they can bend
Torso straight and head tilted back
The doll can easily sit on its knees by pulling out the knee double joints. They can easily escape back in when lifting the doll (which many double joints tend to do from my experience), but sueding might prevent this from happening.
The mobility joints at thighs can be turned around, so the legs can face different directions easily
This pose was a bit difficult, since the locking system in the thigh mobility joints is quite "slippery" and tends to move/escape easily. Of course it doesn't look so pretty with the joints pulled out like this, but this kind of pose is rarely even made possible or if it is, the joints are not made to look pretty anyway. But this pose would look great when she's wearing a skirt or something :3 We haven't tested yet how the mobility joints would work with tights or pants. (Honestly, we are not sure if this kind of poses were even meant to be possible with this body, but it can still hold the pose well!)
A variation of the previous pose, with just one leg bent
The body is able to do poses that require good balance!
It only took a few seconds to find the balance for this pose
This required a little bit of concentration, but it was still easy to do on an even base.
In this pose, the knee double joint tries to escape back inside the leg easily, but again, sueding might help a lot. The arms keep the leg firmly on its place and there are no problems with the balance.
Torso can't be moved back a lot, but it doesn't look bad like this either!
The elbows bend well enough for the doll to touch her face :3

Kneeling down on one knee is easy and fast
This is as low as we could get her to squat :D
Next we have some close-up photos of the jointing system, just in case someone is interested to see these as well.

The ankle part and S hook to the foot
The doll came with a silicone ring in the neck to prevent the head from moving around on its own :D
Aaaand this concludes our posing review! We personally really like the posing ability of Little Mocha body and think that the body is also sculpted beautifully :3
As a little extra, here's a photo to show the faceups that Sarg painted on my and her girls~
