  1. Lacking the main reason to choose a mesh body, is it modifiable? (By rezzing end edit).
    So at least one brand is lacking, sadly, Kitties Lair.
    And now with the new ACS in place, even more , the choice must be of a body that has a low one.

  2. Mesh bodies are fitted mesh meaning they can change with the shape sliders. But say you have a muscular body like the Aesthetic, even if you size the pecs to 0, you still have large pecs. Some features cannot be sized down much. If you want to change the waist or neck size, you can do that.
