With two new bodies the Belleza Gen.X release has the potential to be a hit for both curvy and slender avatar lovers alike. As the creator of the wildly popular Freya and Jake bodies, Belleza is no stranger to making attractive mesh for various body types. I’m here to give you helpful information so you can decide if these bodies are right for you.
A Small History Lesson
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Freya was the go to curvy body for many users back when much of SL was focused primarily on more slender shapes. It has a dedicated enough following that when newer curvy bodies from other creators were released, many folks opted to keep wearing it instead of upgrading immediately or even at all. Freya has left big shoes for any new Belleza body to fill.
Freya vs Gen.X
Before even touching on the new bodies and how they compare to one another, I’d like to cover how they differ from Freya. Some users are hoping for a Freya style body with more features while others are excited at the possibility of something brand new. While the new bodies aren’t Freya, you can feel Freya’s inspiration in both. In fact, many Freya shapes I had in my inventory even worked as solid bases that required just a little tweaking to fit the Gen.X bodies. That said, not all of your previous shapes will play nice with Gen.X bodies, and your Freya clothing definitely will NOT fit Gen.X. They’re new bodies, time for new wardrobes!
