What’s Your Digits 2 – The Mesh Revolution

SS-DigitsTake2

Last August, the lovely Strawberry Singh posed the question “What’s Your Digits?”. Since then, mesh and standard sizing has caused a bit of debate about sizing and shapes and maintaining individuality. I’ve been willing to change my shape twice since August, and both times I felt like I maintained a curvy look that still is “me”.

Initially when mesh was introduced, my August shape fell somewhere between a Medium and Large and I tweaked some sliders up to fit a Large exclusively. As I began to wear mesh more exclusively, I began to notice that, as in RL, some of the things I really wanted to wear, just were not that flattering in the Large size so I made the decision to tweak down to a Medium. I was really worried about maintaining my curvier shape, but experimenting with sliders resulted in a shape that fits a Medium while still being curvy.

These days, I’m wearing mesh all the time and have found myself boxing up old clothes because a) I’ll never wear them again and b) I’ve bought their mesh counterpart. Unless it is something amazing that I HAVE to have, I very rarely buy non-mesh clothing anymore.

The mesh deformer may resolve some of the issues that people have with mesh fitting, but I’m not convinced that it will be the silver bullet. I’m pretty sure there will always be a need for multiple sizes and alpha layers.  I guess for me, seeing is believing and I don’t think we’ll be seeing the deformer in production anytime soon.

The newly released Vintage Dress from Tram is absolutely adorable. The ruffled cap sleeves up the cute factor and the denim is slightly distressed, but not too much so. Available in a number of different washes of denim, the rigged mesh dress include two different styles of belt – buckle or bow – or wear the dress without the belt.
