I wasn’t going to do it. I wasn’t going to buy into the prim/mesh breast add-on craze. I tried a breast demo once. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about but I wasn’t impressed. I don’t walk around with my breast sliders maxed out so having breasts that spilled out in all directions didn’t appeal to me much. And then Belleza, my skin designer of choice, came out with Lolas Tango breast appliers. I raised an eyebrow. I then stumbled upon Strawberry Singh’s stunning pictures of her Tango breasts on her blog. I learned creators could easily contribute clothing to the craze. My interest was piqued. I hopped on over to Lolas’s main store hoping to find a demo and was disappointed when I didn’t find one. I made the purchase anyway and crossed my fingers that they would be as fabulous as everyone claimed them to be.
I originally had an issue with matching the breasts to my Belleza skin even with their appliers. The same day I purchased a new skin from Glam Affair and saw they also offered Lolas Tango appliers. I shrugged and purchased the appliers hoping they could salvage the breast purchase (I was regretting I had spent the lindens on them). I wasn’t disappointed a second time. The Glam Affair skin appliers made the breasts look almost seamless on me. The breasts were too large for my taste so I sized them down considerably. They took a little adjusting after being reduced in size but it wasn’t complicated – nothing a few minutes and a pose stand couldn’t fix. I really liked the result. They have a nice shape and beat the default mesh breast shape. I felt seductive and a little naughty in them (all right – maybe more than a little naughty). They brought my sexy back. I decided to pose for a pic and share it. Never thought I would be flashing this much skin on a public blog but when you got it you might as well flaunt it 🙂

* Although this pic is (obviously) edited, I did very little editing around the breasts seams. The breasts matched that well to this skin.
I get asked a lot about the hairs I frequently wear in my store adverts. I get my hair from many talented hair creators. I like to find the obscure hairstyle or one that is not frequently worn with the fashion style I am wearing – in this case it’s almost always the bridal or formal gowns. I decided to sit down and take the time to make a post and credit one of the designers who created one of the great hair styles I get asked about a lot. I plan to add more as time allows.
I hope you’ll find this post fun and happy shopping!
Ali&Ali Designs – Skye
This beautiful hair is the creation of Alice Klinger. It is called Sky and is by far the hair I am asked about most frequently. It is a non-mesh style and comes in many wonderful colors. It is a flexi style and has great flowing movement. It is a great hair and I wear it quite often. The flowers you see in the advert come in the hair and their color can be changed by touching the hair and following the directions in the drop down menu. If you are like me, you can elect to hide the flowers with the included menu and wear it without them for a little less formal look. The hair is copy which I like because I then could make a copy of the hair and delete out the scripts after I am done sizing and getting the look I want. Available both on the Marketplace and in their In-World store.
