Our Review: Well it’s a given that we recommend this head & body combo but let’s dive into why. Star Mesh Body is without a doubt the most advanced and feature rich body on the market. You get all the bells & whistles other bodies feature with so many extras that most bodies require you to pay extra for. Additionally, you also get the body conformer addon that allows you to wear clothing made for Classic & most Maitreya bodies. You don’t have to wait for creators to catch up. Walk right out onto the street wearing all the latest fashions other ladies wear. You also get the Panthoria add-on that allows you to completely transform yourself into a fantasy creature. If you want to know more, we’ve written a fairly in-depth review on why we recommend the Star Mesh Body HERE. If you’re interested in buying the Star Mesh Body, you can find them in-world HERE or on the Marketplace HERE.
While I am a Star Mesh Body designer, fan & supporter, opinions expressed here on this website are not endorsed by the Star Mesh creator team. I felt it was important to do a comparison of the value between the mainstream SL bodies and that of the Star Mesh Body.

Our Review: If I were to choose another body that wasn’t Star Mesh, this would probably be the one I would go with (shown above). It is very attractive, good quality, has lots of great addons that are quite popular with the ladies who like a voluptuous figure. I love the curvy body and ability to change her body shape to fit the bigger girl look in a very attractive way. Who knew having thick thighs could be so sexy? The shop is super simple to navigate. Everything you need to get you started is made available there plus landmarks to other creators who sell clothing & accessories for it. You still have to do your own homework and find the sex hud and cum systems you want to use. This doesn’t come inherent with this body. In fact, the genitalia was quite disappointing. I had to purchase the V Bento eBODY Reborn Vagina separately for a whopping $1990L just to have a semi-realistic vagina. It’s great for what it is and works beautifully with the physics cock system but it doesn’t make me as happy as the one that comes built on my Star Mesh Body. You can purchase the eBODY Reborn body HERE.

Our Review: Like most long-term SL ladies, the Maitreya body is the one I started with and wore for many years with pride. Like with anything, it became outdated and better bodies became available. Maitreya recently announced a new update coming soon that is meant to provide many important and requested updates so my review will be updated once this update becomes available and I have a chance to review it. With that being said, Maitreya is still among one of the top selling bodies and has one of the largest selections of clothing & accessories available to it. This is a really important selling point for this body. Unfortunately, its outdated design means it has a much less attractive build, less realistic curves and functionality and doesn’t provide the same advantages many of the newer bodies do. It’s still a great body that lends itself to some really cute and fun looks. You can also get the petite version of this body which gives you more body options. The Maitreya Lara body can be found HERE.

Our Review: I really wanted to like this body but despite the positives, but it wasn’t easy to do. I tried all three variations and all three left me unimpressed. The vagina on the bodies were puffy and plain, except for the Kupra Kups which was more like a Maitreya vagina. It will require an addon to achieve a more realistic look but this isn’t so different from most other bodies. The nipple options didn’t really impress me much either. The nipple types were simply the nipple texture resized from smaller to larger nipples with a slight change in puffiness. I did like the cup size options available in the Kupra main body. It enabled you to choose from three cup sizes, including a flat option. The HUD itself was relatively simplistic which would be good for beginners but doesn’t really offer many options for more customization. In fact, there wasn’t even an alpha cut section to allow you to hide certain parts of the body which means many clothing items made for this body will have clippings and bleed throughs. The material presets didn’t really offer me any options I was very pleased with. They all seemed a bit ruddy and rough to me. The feet were different from others I’ve seen but also not really attractive. The one good thing I can say about them was that there were some really good nail shape options for both hands and feet, although, I would have liked a shorter toenail option. The shapes provided had extremely exaggerated proportions. Most were like a cartoon character come to life. For women who want to depict their bodies as large or true to RL, this might allow them to accomplish that. There were numerous BOM skins from Not Found included in the packs which were adequate quality to get you started. This isn’t a body I would consider for myself but if exaggerated proportions are what you are after, this body will definitely suit your needs. The Inithium Kupra body can be found HERE.
