Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons
Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.
- Maitreya Lara is a very popular body with tons of products made specifically to work with it
- Easy to find items to use with it in all sorts of styles
- The clothing/underwear/tattoo layers are separate objects that can be removed to keep your complexity low.
- Lara has been a super popular body for a long time. As such many products have been made for it. That said, newer bodies have come out and some creators dropped support for Lara in favor of the newer bodies. LaraX has also been released, so creators may be making for that more than for Lara Original.
- Only lends itself to slender or athletic shapes
