Last time, I reviewed the implants that have become my standard, the Lola’s, because I do love their appearance. But when it comes to all around versatility and value, it’s very very hard to argue against the Universals. I will still insist, that for my taste, the Lolas are the better looking boobs, but that’s because I’m a bit biased to a natural look. Now I know that sounds odd in a discussion of implants, but it is what it is, at least for me.
That said, the Universals are good-looking boobies, no question about that. And the new v 0.81’s, whjich were released about a month ago, have much to recommend them…and a few things to thumbs down as well.
I’ll begin with this: the noise some of you have heard on the Implant Nation group chat is for the most part…bunk. Let me deal with a few of the criticisms…and add a few of my own.
First, vague statements that the v0.5 version that preceded this newest product was “perfect” are just silly. The very same things people are typically having problems with now existed in the 5s. To wit: difficulty coloring skins and getting weird colors.
Folks, let’s get this squared away once and for all: hand tinting ANY of the major boobies, INs, eBoobs, and Lolas, is a dicey proposition. You can get close, but honestly, if you are really having major problems either seek out someone who does custom skins, or a very skilled tinter, or, get a new body skin. And even then, I can promise you, that depending on the light, they will at times not look perfectly matched.
Second, delivery problems. Well, that has been an issue from time to time with some INs. But the product itself can’t be maligned for that.
Now to more substantive problems…and there are a few.
First and foremost, the version I have refuses to display “fluid,” i.e, cum, on the breasts…instead I get another bra! This happens both with stock and with custom tops, so it appears to be a problem directly related to the new product.
Second, the boob sizes have changed. I am not sure why this is, but you used to be able to get down to under 1900 cc, and I used to standardize at around 2000. Now, 2400 cc seems to be about what 2000 was. Odd, and mildly annoying.
Third, the built-in tops are pretty uninspired but they are a good feature and can be used with simple, foundational garments in a pinch. But they’re hardly the stuff of dreams. This version does include set of “regular” tanktops and bras, which are worn like any other “regular” top, but with all due respect to the developer, Bart Seymour: leave the clothing designs to people who know how to make clothes. Not your forte, to say the least…Ladies, you can safely dispense with the tanks…you may want to keep a couple of the bras around, because they do match up pretty well with the built-in bras, but don’t count on these garments for a big night out…they scream “cheap”!
Finally, the HUD remains one of the best parts of the Universals…but why the heck are there two tabs, Security and Options, that seem to have no purpose? Puzzling.
Where to begin…the new Universals include some truly cool new things and the best of the old favorite tools are still there.
The most improved, and finally useful, tool is the pop-up menu that has controls for outfitting, bounce (which remains a weak area), milking, size, security, BDSM and excitement, the latter three of which I want to put special focus on.
The new menu adds the ability to add users or have open access to all the features of your boobs. This feature alone will get a lot of the girls pretty excited. But use caution: when I say ALL features, I mean it. This includes sizing and the new BDSM feature…So if you don’t want a stranger making your boobs the size of Everest, and you’d prefer not to be dragged hither and yon with no control, then make sure you DON’T enable open access.
A nice feature for those who like to be leashed, well, specifically, leashed at the nipples. You can allow yourself to be leased to a person, assuming you’ve enabled open access or picked a specific person, or to an object. It’s easy to use. As you can see here, my friend has taken advantage of giving her open access.
This little feature is, again, most useful if someone else is working it. It produces some simple, but pretty good text, like “So and so is doing such and such to” you. I’m not a fan of canned text but I know many people enjoy it…and it’s there so…
I continue to maintain that Universals are the best boobs if you need to be able to change from a custom top to naked and back in a hurry. They are GREAT for the stage. They still offer a tremendous number of basic shapes and the skin selections are quite good, but again, absolutely perfect skin matches are best left to a pro who can either color for you OR who can provide a custom skin match.
As a designer, I can say that Universals and Lolas are the easiest to work with, at are fairly priced at $800.
They DO look like breast implants, and I do know that many of you reading this really want that look. You can’t go wrong with these if that’s your goal and in the smaller volumes that look fairly “natural”. No one is going to confuse them Lolas, which continue to be the most natural looking boobs, in my opinion. But Universals are extremely versatile, easy to use and are very popular for many good reasons.
You can find them at the main store in Meerkat.
About These Reviews
A few caveats here. No one is paying me to write this review. I’ll hurt some feelings, but that’s how it is. This is my opinion based on a lot of use of all three products, including designing for them. I base all of it on personal experience and on the reaction I get from both men and women.
In all the photos in this series, the implants are attached at the spine. I doubt this matters much, but full disclosure…we’ll talk about attachment points in a later post…
All photos are shot in midday light with no retouching. All garments are from our store, Whimsy’s Closet (shameless plug).
Last and maybe most important: I use Laqroki skin and “Sweet Lights” face lighting.
