 The HUD:

Hourglass HUD 1.1 Hourglass RGB HUD 1.1

The best bits:
  • Seamless fit to Slink hands and feet (as you would expect)
  • Ability to wear asymmetical outfits (ie. one sleeved shirts) because arms are not mirrored (like sl and many mesh body’s arms are)
  • Panties layer is a shorter layer (panty size) so reduces glitching when wearing panties and pants layer at the same time
  • You can keep your slink shoe collection!
  • This body will fit a niche that has been lacking so far – many women in SL like to have a bigger upper/lower half, for which this body will suit them quite nicely.
  • I had far less issues with this body actually showing in world – It loads fast for both me and those around me.
  • 8 Alpha save slots! Saves a lot of time (if you can remember which is which)
  • Now Omega compatible!! (as of 9th Sept 2015)
The worst bits:
  • The body won’t fit standard sized mesh, which is a given really when you consider it’s shaping. Of course alpha cuts help, but ultimately your body wouldn’t keep its shape in standard mesh anyway – so best to wait for some fitmesh for this body, which I’m sure will be coming along very soon!
  • The body isn’t so much plus size as it is truly an hourglass shape, so the rigging at the waist keeps it quite small with respect to the top and bottom halves of the body. Not a bad thing really, just depends on your preferred style of body.
  • Not so much a ‘worst bit’, but I would so love to have a version of this body that is a little more responsive to the love handles slider. Though it is an hourglass body, it would make such an amazing all over plus size body too!
Best suited to:

Users who love big breasts or big lower halves (or both!)

  1. I recently bought this mesh body and it. Looks. Gorgeous!! ….however, when it comes to applying clothing, tattoos, etc., I’m at a complete lost. :’c I have the Omega system and everything to start with, I just don’t know how or where to start (and the HUD for the body is so complex, it all looks like a foreign language! o.o) Help….lol

  2. i got this body a month ago and I love it.
    looks great,
    my lelutka head fits perfect,
    no problems with applying skin or clothes.
    by now,
    many creators do mesh fitting the hourglass.
    no fear,
    you’ll definitely find something nice to wear 🙂

  3. Hi I recently purchased hourglass and I’m having trouble finding hair that will cover my breast they show through the hair….any suggestions?

  4. HI, I LOVE my HG body! It is … me! The only thing is, I am pregnant in SL, and as I am making my shapes for the later months, I am noticing that the belly looks square. I was wondering is it was all big bellies, so I put on my non mesh body, shutters, and it wasn’t square, and then tried my Maitreya next, it looked great, nice and round. Any help for anyone looking to be pregnant in world?

    • I had the same problem. i think it just really wasn’t made for pregnancy, which is sad. cause it would make sense that it does. its got birthing hips. I found it helped a little to make your hips longer.
