I’m on a mission at the moment to find good quality clothing for avatars who choose to wear mesh breasts. There are so many stores on the grid that don’t accommodate them yet, and I sure as hell enjoy wearing mine, so I dream of a day when a store like Cold Logic will incorporate appliers into their range.
That’s not to say that there aren’t any good clothing options out there already. There certainly are; Patchwork Heart, Ellemeno and Cynful immediately spring to mind. There are other smaller names too, but at the moment I’m seeing a lot of the same templates being used for clothing for busty avvies in stores. I’ve no issue with that per se as long as interesting textures and adornments are used to make the item stand out from the crowd.
I do hope there’s not going to be a controversial ‘them and us’ culture develop among designers leading to some sort of great divide around who caters to boobies and who doesn’t. The fact remains that there’s a lot of fetish wear and items that expose part, or all of your knockers to the metaverse, and I don’t necessarily want to do that. I may wear mesh boobies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I want to look like a tart.
At the moment my gut suggests such a division may be unlikely, especially when you have trailblazers like Strawberry Singh owning some norks and taking amazing photographs in them. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! (I’d be interested in your comments on this issue reader, please feel free to add them below)
I’m also very into big-cat print clothing at the moment. I’ve not gone full on Bet Lynch, but I do like a nice tiger stripe, or leopard spot skirt. I’ve found a couple of items on my travels that I’m going to share with you; and first up is this rather lovely shirt from a store called QE, located on the Jersey Shore.
Actually the HQ for the ‘Big Boobie Babes SL’ group is directly opposite the store. (Incidentally, that’s your starter for ten, because if there’s a group HQ on the sim you’re bound to be able to find some boobie-wear nearby. And that I did!)
QE retails a mixed bag of fashion and you’ll find basic wardrobe staples such as dresses and tops. The range isn’t extensive but I have a hunch that this is because the creator, Emms, is probably busy working on new range additions. There are some items that I think you’ll like. Look out for the ‘Bambi Dress’ which comes in a variety of options, plain or patterned, but the patchwork styling has a nice hippy feel to it. It’s mesh as well, which makes it even more appealing, and not bad for L$250.
There are some basic jersey dresses, always a good investment at just L$169, and you can choose from black, red or pink. Again, as with the majority of items in-store, they all include appliers. The ‘Cozy Sweater’ is not dissimilar to the shape of the ‘Open Sweater’ at Ellemeno. This isn’t a problem for me though, as I said previously it’s what designers do with the template items that’s important, and Emms has applied a lovely chunky knit with contrast pockets to her sweater design. The open styling of course means it’s wearable with mesh boobies, and they’re a nice addition at L$150. (Even better , the ‘Cozy Sweater’ in green, costs just L$1 so a great dollarbie addition to your wardrobe!)
My favourite item in store is the ‘Button Down Top’in ‘Classic Cheetah ‘design, which I’m wearing in my picture above. There’s a variety of these tops on sale, but I wanted animal print and this shirt was most definitely relevant to my interests. It’s sexy (open to just above the waist) but not over-the-top, and it’s also an absolute bargain at L$120, and looks great with a pair of mesh jeans, some chunky bangles and your fave flat shoes. Well, that’s how I’m wearing mine anyway.
QE has a number of satellite stores around the block; you’ll find it at Cleavage, Calista and Sense Appeal as well so you may well encounter the store while out shopping or doing other stuff and things, and I heartily recommend it for building up your booby wardrobe at a low price. Essential purchases for me are the Jersey dresses and Button Down Tops, you can do so much with them:)
(NOTE: The main store is actually (according to Emm’s profile) based at Sense Appeal, but I visited and it’s actually a hardcore sim ( A future breeding lab apparently. My eyeballs were on stalks!) and I couldn’t see the store; but I did see other things. Yikes!)
