Does this skirt make my butt look fat?

Question

  • 0

Just using common sense and by no means do I really know the answer here. I would think so that the pants layer is covered with less bleed through when you walk or animations etc.  Also I know in my designing of clothing the new skirt layer always has a little bustle in the back and is not defaultly set to 0.

It's a thing in SL, a skirt is rendered away from the body. The way to fix this is as follows. If your shape is modifialbe, first make a copy of teh shape and call it something like "skirt shape". Wear the new skirt shape and go into Appearance. (Edit, then appearance) in the torso tab of the shape, find the sliders for hips and for your butt, set these sliders to zero or a size you find appealing. This works best if you're wearing a skirt while doing it so you can see the effect. Once you find the size you like best in a regular skirt, save the new shape. Next time you wear a regular skirt, wear the skirt shape with it and voila, you look sleek and sophisticated instead of big butted. lol But if your shape is not modifiable there's nothing you can do about it.

  1. Make a copy of your shape and name it no butt.
  2. Wear the no butt shape.
  3. Set butt to zero.
  4. Save.
  5. Wear system skirt.
  6. No longer so bad.
  7. Fine tune to suit if butt too flat with skirt.

i can't remember where i heard it now the first time, and i have heard it more than one time, but i will never in my life be able to hear the question "Does this <whatever> make my butt look fat?" without hearing the comeback "Your butt makes your butt look fat."

For best results play with all those settings (saddlebags, hip width and butt size) around the hips/butt until you are happy with the look (when i finally learned this trick it saved half my inventory of system skirts i thought were unwearable - and there was one gown I deleted that I will never be able to get back ).

Spread the word - there are far too many women that haven't heard about the "system skirt shape" trick!

laughs... oki yes, you have to really like her ass to be able to bring it off with sincerity or - really care about her enuf not to hurt her feelings if she is feeling good about herself... or suggest another skirt/outfit that truly is flattering without telling her why... i know we are complicated... but NOT that complicated, smiles

Well.. if you feel that the skirts make you look too big, that's a shame, but I think the answer might be fairly easy.

The non-prim skirts float over the body of the avatar, just because of the way that the SL client handles them.  Nothing (of which I am away) changes that, so no matter what kind of non-prim skirt it is, you will always notice that it makes that part of the body of the avatar look bigger.

Sure.. it's not great, but - as you've seen - prim skirts are much more-configurable and probably the way to best get away from the 'fat' appearance of the non-prim skirts.
