Maitreya LaraX (& What You Need To Know Compared To Lara)

This post covers the new LaraX body from Maitreya. Check out the Maitreya LaraX, Maitreya LaraX Petite, and Maitreya Lara Original listings on The Mesh Directory to get an overview of each body and compare them to others. Maitreya LaraX Flat will also be listed once it is released.

The highly anticipated Maitreya LaraX has been released! Owners of the original Maitreya Lara body will receive LaraX for free when redelivering their current Lara body. This can be done for those using Lara v5 or newer via the Maitreya HUD (in the tab labelled “Misc.”) or by visiting the redelivery terminal in store. I highly recommend redelivering via HUD as it can be done from anywhere that allows scripts (aka anywhere your HUD works.) It’s expected the Maitreya sim will be packed and difficult to access for a while after the release.

Maitreya LaraX – What We Know

The cover image is the Maitreya In-World Store on July 29, 2023. The window display was created by Vixie Rayna.

Maitreya LaraX is now listed on The Mesh Directory! To see what’s new and what will be familiar check out the post Maitreya LaraX (& What You Need To Know Compared To Lara)!
LaraX and LaraX Petite have been released! If you have Lara v5 or newer you can use the redelivery button in the “Misc” section of your HUD to get LaraX. For LaraX Petite you’ll need to swing by the in world store for a redelivery. LaraX Flat is not yet released, however it is coming.

As LaraX is now officially out most of this post isn’t as relevant. You can still find some answers about it here, however keep an eye out for the LaraX listing on The Mesh Directory as well as an in depth post on what’s new with LaraX. I’ll link both of those here once they are up!


By now you’ve probably seen that Maitreya Lara is getting an update is releasing a new body, Lara X! (This body is free for those who own Maitreya Lara, so many considered it an update for quite some time. It has been confirmed by the creator that Lara X is an entirely new body.) You’ve probably also heard a ton of speculation and rumors. Within the first 24 hours after the news broke I was already seeing a ton of guessing being presented as facts and confusing folks. After seeing misinformation circulating (and confusing people) I decided to consolidate what we do know to help keep facts straight. I will be keeping this up to date as I come across more information.

PRIMA Femme – The Adult Bits

It took me a bit longer than I would’ve liked to write this post due to RL circumstances. Thank you for your patience and understanding .

I detailed PRIMA’s lovely Femme Elite body in my prior post, PRIMA Femme – A Highly Customizable, Gorgeous New Body. In it you got to see a variety of the customization options including various shapes for the bust, booty, navel, and more. Today we’ll be digging into the customization options for the nipples and vulva, and also peeking at the new bust shapes that have been added since we last looked at the body.

PRIMA Femme – A Highly Customizable, Gorgeous New Body

A new body, PRIMA Femme, quietly released at FaMESHed this month, and if you haven’t demoed it yet you should check it out. This beautiful new body is made by the same creator as Tonic, so while the name may look like they’re new to the scene their presence has actually been helping make Second Life users beautiful for years. Anyone who owns a Tonic body can head to PRIMA’s main store to get PRIMA Femme at a steep discount.

Combating Lag

It’s no secret that things like applier layers and HUD alphas contribute to the lag you and those around you experience. PRIMA took great care in working to make an efficient body to help reduce lag issues. Your purchase includes two versions: one with an applier layer and one without. If you don’t use appliers on your body the one without is the body you’ll want to use to help reduce lag.

You’ll also find there’s no alpha section of the HUD. Some other bodies utilize this as well, which has encouraged creators to make alphas for their products. You can easily find free alpha layer packs on the Marketplace as well as affordable, in depth ones. If none of those quite suit your fancy, you can also make your own alphas. This is a great option as you can choose to hide exactly what you want and nothing more. It’s helpful to note that while there’s no alpha cuts section, there are still toggles to hide your hands, feet, nipples, and groin area.

Belleza Gen.X – The New Bodies From Freya’s Creator

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!
