You know that type of outfits: chainmail bikinis and pieces of fabric with pauldrons that don’t protect vital organs at the slightest, small short dresses made even smaller and shorter by designer cuts all across the body, leotards and bodysuits which leave very little to imagination, modern clothes that you won’t put on your teenage daughter or son. Love it or hate it, skimwear is here and most probably it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

But what is your favorite skimwear? Is there the one that you quietly like as a guilty pleasure, or maybe you use often as a part of more sensible mix-and-match, or maybe you truly like some of it as it is designed? Maybe promos make it look good and elegant, or maybe it reminds you of barbarian and barbarian princesses - male or female, what is your favorite skimwear?

I’m just curious smile

Personally I have several of ‘guilty pleasure’ category (Genesis Scout, Athlantya for Genesis and Blade Maiden), and several I like because promos look nice and elegant (AvaAdore, Hirilneth, The Light Mage)

I rarely use skimpwear as-is — I only buy it as part of a promotion, for a contest, or to kit-bash (like with Quickwind and Scarlet fG).  Which means I prefer what skimpwear I buy to come in multiple pieces and with versatile material zones . . . I gotta say that Xena’s Wicked series is good for that, here’s an example of the Wicked Bolero with the SuperSuit.

Anything in particular? Maybe something that combines both? smile

Right now I’m looking for a really short cropped leather jacket with long tight sleeves. I’m talking not even covering thee entire breasts. I can’t find a picture of the exact jacket, but it comes into style occasionally. Biker style would be best, but a dressy one would work too.

The gear punk Jacket from Renderositys the right length, but lacks the sleeves.

For shorts, I like what I describe as the “panties with a belt” look. The Kit-1 shorts for Terai Yuki are a good example

http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=44298

As far as the straps go, I’d like to find a pair of stockings held up by suspenders. I mean the US definition of suspenders, not a garter belt. Think of a pair of thigh-highs held up by a pair of suspenders that go all the way over a woman’s shoulders.

dx30’s Sharp Sword outfit. 

Looks like a two-piece, but it’s really a gravity defying one-piece. grin

And it was on sale all week for 40% off.

I don’t buy much skimpwear, though I do use it fairly often*...usually in order to test out a new skin texture I’ve purchased, or to experiment with lighting and skin surface settings (but maybe that goes without saying…the purpose of skimpwear is to show more skin, right?).

I’d have to say my favorite is Andromedas Legend, because aside from being cool-looking fantasy skimpwear, it also comes with props and poses for a great low price. Also the Genesis Supersuit, because it can be as skimpy (or not) as desired.

Honorable mentions include Amethyst Fantasy, Dragon Queen, and Briana Culaith (the latter in large part thanks to SnowSultan’s renders of Smacky wearing it). For the guys, probably DragonLord.

*I was going to claim that I DON’T use it very often, but then I reviewed my render thread… tongue wink

The outfit as a whole doesn’t really fall into my definition of skimpwear, but the Mall Girl top wouldn’t be allowed on non-uniform day at my daughter’s school, and has been turning up in a lot of my renders lately.

Other than that, possibly Amathyst for Genesis.  I don’t use the skirt much, but the top and the foot-wear are pretty common for one of the races for the fantasy world I’m building.

Briana Culaith, I use that so much, I could have paid Turbosquid prices and still gotten my money’s worth.  wink


edit: just read Scott’s comments above, thank you very much!

Aery Soul’s “Classic Fantasy” is great for those guilty pleasure cheesecake fantasy renders, but sadly seems to be no longer on sale. (Here’s one of my images featuring it). Garee’s Martian Princess is a possible alternative (as featured in this render).

The V4 Forest Dryad outfit is also nice if you want something leafy (here’s another example image).

If you’re more into science-fiction, Brazen is pretty good (as seen in this image, supplemented with V4 Basic Wear).

And if you want it steampunk-y, try Strapped Suit (of which, quite by chance, I just happen to have another image).

EDIT: Classic Fantasy is now back on sale at RDNA.

Soul mate!


Oh man I almost fell out of my chair.


I like primitive outfits for sword and sorcery type scenes.  I don’t care for “regular” clothes that are tight or ill-fitting for the purpose of being sexy, especially when it’s presented as “this is how nurses and secretaries really dress!”  I’d literally rather see people in full-on fetish vinyl because then I’m only asked to believe they deliberately are into a fetish, not that they deliberately put on clothes that didn’t fit.


I say this for club wear, at least that’s often how women do dress to go to clubs.

Greetings,
So for shirts, I’m partial to the Aussie Girl shirt and of course the Hongyu’s shirt for V5 but these are mostly skimpwear when used…‘right’. wink

Another classic that I use all-too-often is Hongyu’s Bikini.

Historically I have a bunch of renders that use pieces from Nightshayde for Genesis.

Lately I’ve been using shirts, cut-offs and shorts from these in a LOT of my renders: Tank Tops and Cut Offs.  Of course Kimberly’s shorts are also very cute.

For skimpwear I like shorts, and keyhole shirts, but all the keyhole shirts I use are V4 conversions to Genesis.
