One of the latest trends to take the fashion world by storm are mesh breasts and though prim enhancements are by no means new to the world of SLastic surgery for our avatars, c’mon now- these are mesh! It seems that no matter where I teleport or what groups I belong to, I am surrounded by boobies, almost to the point where I fear someone poking an eye out at any given moment. Needless to say, being unable to run from the mass hysteria following this latest craze, I decided to join the crowd and see just what all the fuss was about.
Skin creators and clothing designers alike are coming out with appliers and matching fashion faster than we can spend our hard-earned Lindens and so I was super excited when my new skin choice from Belleza had an available skin applier for both Lolas Tango and Lush mesh breasts. At only a fraction of the cost of a RL boob job, I bought both sets and doubled-timed it back home to put myself under the knife.
Okay, so I admit, my first reaction was: WTH? At first glance, I felt like I was suffering from mad cow disease or something- these things were HUGE and screaming for someone to milk ’em. I mean, most women want larger breasts, but for me, these were just asking for chronic back problems and ‘Moo’ jokes for the rest of my SLife. But, I hung in there and after a few hours of tweaking and checking myself out, I managed to downsize from a GG to a reasonable C cup, or so. They might not have been the B I was hoping for, but after battling it out with gravity for an appropriate placement, I was confident enough to sew myself back up.
Though both Lush and Lolas look great, they still have enough differences for wearers to form their own opinions. Lush have a more perky, implant-like physique to them and to me, are more closely shaped like the default SL breasts. They were also a lot easier for me to adjust as well, especially when it came to re-sizing to a more natural look. Lolas, on the other hand, work well with gravity, with a more natural pear shape and a slight separation where they fall.
As for design, both Lush and Lolas come with attached chest plates, which is where getting a proper fit became frustrating. With the size I settled on, I found I had to sink the upper chest portion within my body, which means they won’t exactly line up with most clothing appliers, but seeing as how I can’t really imagine myself out in public with them all that much, I’m none too concerned about that. Another thing I also noticed, is that even with the use of the matching skin applier, I found that in certain windlight settings, one can go from looking like Jessica Rabbit, to an 80-year-old with a great rack. Now, seeing as how I don’t see many people wearing a titler that make recommendations for best view, just be sure to keep that in mind before deciding.
All in all though, I have to admit, they do take such pretty pictures. ;)
