Learning About Mesh Clothes

I’ve tried to understand mesh clothing. I’ve seen some clothes modelled and I want to fall in love with mesh. Anyway, a couple weeks ago I tried on a few things from three stores. One store is relatively new, one is well known and the other somewhere in between. I don’t want to mention them because I have great clothes from all of them. This is just about some questioning of why Mesh isn’t working for me.

You’ve prolly seen photos like this in other blogs, this one is mine.
Left side is mesh dress demo with shaper.
Right side is without shaper.
I spent a lot of time creating my shape.
I don’t feel my avi is me without the details I created.

Just to stress a point.

I really liked this dress, everything about it.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a bosom like that.

Unfortunately, my “child bearing hips” are not something this designer provided for.

Oh, Blissie has a cool post about a mesh dress.

Ok, different designer but same issue.

Ok, I’m sure if I had read all the latest information in the great fashion blogs I’d know what the situation is with mesh. But I’ve ignored mesh until Phoenix introduced a mesh enabled viewer. So now I have a lot of questions.

Are most girlfriends ok with having their shape modified for the outfit? I’m wondering, do you have to find a designer who has a shape something similar to yours? Are there designers who have special technologies that can adapt to your actual shape? Are the mesh technology guys looking for solutions to this issue?

    I think a lot of people are unhappy with having their shape modded to fit the dress. But many just do it anyway.I think mesh is far from perfect, but still it is an improvement. Mesh isn't magic, just like other clothing, you can make great mesh or crap mesh, but overall I do think it's a step.So far at least, virtual clothes, which we WANT to behave like physical clothes, like cotton, wool, etc, really don't. Maybe wearing a prim and wanting it to be wool is as silly as wearing cotton and wanting it to be a prim! 😛
