Maitreya Lara

Previously posted @ kirstentacular.

Maitreya has been a brand of high quality for a long time. They don’t release very often compared to other brands on the grid, but they go for quality over quanitity. Hiram got me the new fitted mesh body, Lara, by Maitreya for Christmas and I have been playing with it. Just like every other mesh part or body that I have put on, your shape will need to be tweaked to get it like you want in the new body. Lara is very curvy and a bit thick so I had to do a lot of changes to my shapes to get them like I want in this new body. I took pictures and overlayed and tweaked and asked opinions and finally have come up with a mesh shape and a curvy shape that are making me happy in this new body.

The body comes with an entire fatpack of fitted mesh lingerie (shown above) in 16 colors that will fit perfectly to any shape you wear with your body. I am showing it in two different shapes to display how the lingerie adjusts to your shape. There was also the Vixen dress (shown in red above and below) and a Lara fitmesh size was added to the Maitreya thigh high boots as well. Even though they do not normally release very often, I really hope that changes a bit and they make a lot more fitted mesh items for this new body because the ones already available are simply stunning.

This body comes with the fatpack of fitmesh lingerie, applier lingerie from Zaara, Glam affair skins are included in the HUD (so no need for an GA applier), great alpha layers that are seperated into tons of portions to make wearing standard size mesh easy, compatible with Omega, Maitrya hands, and Maitreya feet that change into flat, medium, and high via HUD. The body also works really well with the XS slink hands and feet. I am wearing slink hands and Mait feet in this post.

I love the boob, bottom, and hip shape of this new body. I love the curves and I feel super sexy while wearing Lara. The rest of the pictures in this post are going to be slightly not safe for work.

Pretty curves! My shoes are one of the three Maitreya VIP group gifts. They fit the Mait high feet that are included in the body purchase. My parting thoughts are: It is all about that booty!

Well, it’s 3 a.m. I’m out here riding again
Through the wicked winding streets of my world
I make a wrong turn break it now, I’m too far gone
I got a siren on my tail and that ain’t the fine I’m lookin’ for

I see a stairway so I follow it down
Into the belly of a whale where my secrets echo all around
You know me now but to do better than that
You’ve got to follow me boy, I’m tryin’ to show you where I’m at

Hey pretty
Don’t you wanna take a ride with me through my world?
Hey pretty
Don’t you wanna kick and slide through my world?

Maitreya vs Belleza vs Slink … oh my …

Previously posted @ The Newest Wrinkles.

The mesh body reviews are back.  I’ll warn you, there’s a lot of nudity.  The release of the Belleza body brought about a lot of hype.  People waited, release was delayed, people waited longer, they stood in the store with signs, there were posts all over the place .. and then .. it was released.  I picked up the demo initially and then waited for Glam Affair to make an applier before purchasing it.  While I was initially skeptical I saw a few things about it I liked, a few I didn’t.  I have done mesh body comparisons in the past, first the review of the WoWmeh body (no longer available .. sorry kids.) and then a comparison between The Shop’s body, Slink, and WowMeh that can be found here.  And now I’ll break down the 2 newest ones, vs slink .. because I can’t bring myself to go back to the Shops store to pick up their mesh body again .. for all those who are in love with it, I support you, for me, it’s my least favorite.  With that said, on to the reviews ..

I’ll start with a full body set of shots.  For your reference:

Blond = Maitreya ($ 2,750L – includes hands and feet – also slink compatible)

Black = Belleza ($ 3,995L – includes hands and feet – also slink compatible)

Red = Slink ($ 1,250L – does NOT include hands or feet or appliers.  Feet – $ 675L (for only one level .. so to get flat, mid and high $ 2,025L) Hands – $ 450L per hand position)

I keep them in the same order throughout so you don’t get confused.

FULL BODY COMPARISON

Ok so, to start.  Those who know me know I favor a thicker shaped avatar.  I like a few extra pounds and some soft curves.  To date I have yet to find a mesh body that reflected curves as effortlessly and with as much balance as WowMeh, but times are changing, appliers are harder to find, and we all need to update at some point.  For those who enjoy a curvy thicker or larger avatar STAY AWAY FROM BELLEZA .. Stay away from Slink for that matter as well, and don’t go anywhere near The Shops mesh body either.  All three of these shapes have a for the most part similar sized base avatar shape (with a few changes … please remember different mesh bodies respond to base shapes differently so you’re going to have to do some tweaking).

Maitreya – By far the most responsive to small changes in body mass, fat, etc.  You don’t have to do much and you don’t have to max out fat or love handles or saddlebags etc to balance out wider hips with a thicker torso.  The same goes for leg muscle.  What I do like is the smoother curve you can create with changing love handles etc that is harder to achieve with belleza and damn near possible to do with Slink (imo).

Belleza – Just doesn’t translate well to a larger avatar.  For slim girls it’s great, it truly is and I have seen some absolutely stunning avatars.  If you look at the picture, the left side of the body (your left, not the picture’s left) you’ll see the torso curve, where it is smooth under the breasts and flares out to the hips on the Maitreya, no amount of fussing could achieve the same effect (for a thicker avatar therefore higher body mass fat etc) for the belleza body.

Slink – Has been a struggle. While you can get a nice curve in the torso, where the hips meet the thighs is a mess.  To get a smooth line you have to play with your leg thickness, which can end up looking unbalanced.  Saddlebags also have to be maxed out at 100 so there’s not a lot of room for adjustment.  It is not .. I repeat .. not .. made for more pronounced curves.

For body overall, ease of adjusting shape, and general flexibility … I have to vote Maitreya.

On to the Butt … because it’s all about the bass ..

yeah … that was a thing I just quoted… and I’m totally listening to that song now.

Butt Comparison

Maitreya – Oh .. my … god. It’s so round, so plush, and so… BAM .. there’s ma ass.  I love it.  I love it more than the majority of ass mesh enhancements.  It’s such a plush shape, it blends well into upper thighs without looking saggy.  It looks great big .. it looks great little… it just looks great period.  At the size it is currently its not even at 100.  You have room to grow a bit, but for most people you wont even need to.

Belleza – Not bad, it also ‘lifts’ where it meets the top of your thighs instead of depending on a shading line to create the effect.  It’s pretty well shaped, however if you’re OCD like me, a side view shows a bit of flattening where I’d rather see a nice chunky round curve.  Also, the size shown in this picture is maxed at 100.  And the cheeks look a little more squished together?  I don’t know if you see what I mean but the Belleze butt looks like shes clenching just a little.

Slink – Droopy butt.  It’s sad to see the stark contrast.  Maxed at 100, not as defined, it’s probably a more ‘natural’ butt tbh.  It doesn’t sit off the top of your thighs as sharply as Maitreya and Belleza, it blends down more so than the others (wow … I just said the same thing twice.. words words words).

For the butt .. well .. depends what you want.  For thick robust and delicious I vote Maitreya.  For a tight perky bump on a slim shape .. I vote Belleza .. Slink for the natural subtle behind.

Now for the boobs …

Boob Comparison

Maitreya – The most natural of them all.  In fact I think they’re becoming my favorite across the board (yes, even more than the slink breasts and I am actually rather fond of them).  Maitreya’s breasts hang pretty well, and they don’t have the weird stick out shelf that the Belleza breasts do (don’t even get me started on the Shops mesh body breasts).  Because they don’t torpedo out as much as the Belleza breasts do you’re able to make them larger (to balance out a larger ass and thicker shape in general) without having your breasts literally cross a sim boundary 5 minutes before you do.  That being said, I can’t bring myself to max them out, when you do the still stick out to the point of cartoonish (haha funny I know I know .. it IS a cartoon).  If you’re encountering that problem make them just a wee bit smaller and up your gravity, it will help bring about that natural drooping while still looking nice and .. well .. very nice.

Belleza – No.

Slink – A softer rounder natural.  I’m not opposed to them, however the way they sit lacks the dimension that both Maitreya and Belleza have.

My vote .. for now .. Maitreya.  I wish there was a way to blend together Slink boobs and Maitreya boobs, I think aspects of both of them when put together would make a great set of fun bags.

Now for the Huds …

Maitreya Hud

Maitreya Hud – The alpha layers are off the hook.  Clean lines, A MILLION options.  They did a good job with that.  I’m pretty pleased and impressed.  You also have 10 skin presets (that match Glam Affair) so if you’re a Glam Affair girl you’ll be happy to know you don’t have to pick up any appliers.  You can load in skin tones and use the tint option to further match or adjust as needed.  Standard nail options for hands and feet that aren’t remarkable but they’re alright.  I tend to stick to french tips anyways.

Maitreya also comes with hands and feet.  I still prefer slink hands however these aren’t bad, and you have 3 nail length options.  The feet have 3 options, flat, mid and high (like slink).  Unfortunately, they don’t seem to work with slink high or mid shoes (at least not the ones I have)… bummer.  If you find shoes they do work with please let me know.  The body IS slink compatible.  Please remember though if you see an alpha line at your wrists switch to Slink xsmall hands and it will be fixed.

Belleza Hud

The Belleza hud is massive.  The alpha options around the chest and torso are not as extensive as the Maitreya hud however they’re for the most part functional.  Belleza also comes with hands and feet.  Nail lengths and different foot heights are standard.  A limited selection of nails is a bummer, however the numerous options for hands is impressive.  It comes preset with belleza skins, and the majority of skin creators have been making appliers for awhile now.  The breasts have 2 different options, natural and pushup.  I do like the choice of nipple colors that can over-ride the applier option (on the off chance you don’t like the shade of your skins nipples).

Slink Hud

The Slink hud is streamlined and simple.  There is a separate skin tone hud however there are a zillion skin appliers out there to pick from so it’s not so much of an issue.  The alpha options aren’t nearly as good as Maitreya and Belleza. You don’t get hands and feet, you have to purchase those separately, so if you’re just starting out with mesh enhancements and you want a ‘pack’ to make life easier this isn’t the option for you.

Over all .. for huds and options Belleza has done an impressive job.  Maitreya isn’t bad and some of the things I dont like are a moot point if you use other mesh created enhancements (hands and feet from slink).

At this point I’m leaning more towards Maitreya for mesh bodies still on the market.  It’s more bang for your buck and you can do more with the body (small or a bit chunkier).  The draw back at the moment for most will be the lack of appliers.  Give it a bit of time and the skin creators will solve that problem quickly as will the clothing creators.

If you run into trouble inworld feel free to hit me up :) and I’m happy to help tweak a shape or whatever you need.

Maitreya Mesh Body

Previously posted @ Sheaxxx…io.

Hace unos días mi amiga Philo me habló del nuevo cuerpo mesh de Maitreya; cuando probé el demo quedé encantada con la redondez de sus formas y dije: si Deluxe Body Factory saca appliers para este cuerpo, lo compro. Al día siguiente estaba recibiendo la info de que estaban disponibles esos appliers, así que ni lo pensé más y lo compré y realmente estoy contentísima con mi nuevo cuerpo. Y no es sólo por sus formas, hay ciertos detalles muy interesantes: es absolutamente compatible con manos y pies Slink (aunque también trae sus propias manos y pies), la unión del cuello y la cabeza no se ve y es compatible con el Omega System (recomiendo que lo compren inworld con el tag del grupo a 3 l, sino sin grupo o en el market cuesta 99 l)
Así que acá estamos, año nuevo, cuerpo nuevo jajajaja
Feliz y bendecido 2015 para todos!
