Another shape thing I find people overlook is having a shape for skirts. One needs to shrink their usual butt and hips to something smaller to wear skirts and have them look right.

I have a modified copy of my shape just for use with skirts.

I do that with the skirts too, the day I figured that out was a good one!

I didn't do the shape measurement thing, but I did have a peek at mine and compared. My body fat is at 10, and I get lots of compliments on the 'realistic' curviness of my look (my love handles and saddle bags are higher than average too). I am constantly disturbed at how thin most females look, and how beefed of most males look. It is fascinating.

Wonderful setting for the pictures that accompany the article!

Kinda funny, my shape's body fat is 26, but my torso/leg muscle sliders are in the 80-90 range (as the shape is deliberately going for that comic superheroine look), which means nearly every bit of primmy clothing I buy has to be modified... or I do the outfit-specific shape thing mentioned here. It's a pain, but until we have an avatar mesh that can flex like real flesh, it's a necessary one, no?

While I do not have a separate skirt shape (bustles are appropriate in most of the areas I frequent), I do have variations, such as a barefoot shape (because someone who is six feet tall does *NOT* have size 0 feet), one for modern dress, with a slightly thicker waist (because there isn't a corset imagined underneath) and still another for kimonos (that is a whole different foundation arrangement).

Still, my base shape is not quite standard in relation to the fashion ideals. The shape I wear on a daily basis was inspired more by Rubens than Vogue. Since I rezzed in 2007, I have only had two negative comments made to me about the shape, and one of those was an atrociously rude avatar that was 0 days old.

I still have to make adjustments to prim attachments, but I am willing to do so to maintain this identity. The fashion designers that provide a shape with their no-mod clothing do not get repeat business from me. I am not here to be their model.

(Goodness, where did that soap-box come from?)


Ophelia's hot. just sayin'
