Newb qesttion about supported shapes

I'm a complete newbie at this stuff and have a question about items like hair and clothes supported shapes.  I see items that have supported shapes like Penny 8 ect..

I was looking to buy Gwen HD  https://www.daz3d.com/gwyn-hd-for-genesis-8-female , but looking at items like hair https://www.daz3d.com/gizelle-hair-for-genesis-3--8-females and armor https://www.daz3d.com/galactic-sci-fi-suit-for-genesis-8-females dont have Gwen as a supported shape.  Everything is Genesis 8 Female, would that hair and armor work on Gwen?  I'm just trying to figure out can you use items on unsupported shapes if they are the same Genesis?  Is there drawbacks to doing so, ect...

Many thanks,

Ed

    When a product says "Supported shape" it means it has a custom shape to match the figure shape - if a shape isn't supported then you are relying on AutoFollow to project the shape into the fitted items, which may work more or less well depending on the shape and on the design of the item. But you will get at least an attempt to folow the unsupported figure shapes.

    In most cases, yes. I never even look at supported figure as long as it's the same base and not an extreme morph. If you don't get a good enough fit, you can always adjust scaling or add a smoothing modifier with collision to try and get a better fit. If it is a problem you can't fix there is a 30 dat return policy.

    Same. When I use a product, I don't even bother to check if the figure I'm using is supported, and to apply the proper shape. I'm yet to have something made for, say, G8, and that won't fit the random G8 figure I'm using at the moment. I expect all G8 clothes, hair, etc... to fit whatever G8 figure I happen to be using. I never check the list of supported figures when I buy a product, either. Not saying that you shouldn't, but it has never been a problem for me so far.
