This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is the Maxis “Ruffled Tankini” turned into two separate items. Why should only adults be able to mix and match like they want?

The top is for girls (Swimwear, Everyday, Party, and Sleepwear), the bottom is unisex (swimwear and underwear). The top works nicely with a lot of the Maxis bottoms; some of the colour variants are matching textures/colours of this skirt so they can be combined into a dress (of sorts).

I went a little overboard with the recolours -- there are 70 of them all in all, 43 tops and 27 bottoms -- so I had to split the top into two catalogue entries (the swatch list was messing with the UI because it was too long). They are the exact same item though, only with the solid and two-tone colours in one thumbnail and the patterns and dots in the other.

The bottom has a small issue I haven’t figured out yet: when you put it on a sim in CAS and then select it (like to change the colour), it will open the Full Body category instead of Bottoms -- you then need to select Bottoms again before you can select the actual item. I have no idea why, it is cloned from the same thing as the top (which doesn’t do that) and the tags are the same as in the Maxis swimshorts. -- Fixed! See this post for details. The first few people who downloaded this may want to redownload =).

The sims on the screenshots are wearing some hairs from here and here, this skirt, and Helianthea's Super Bland Comic Eyes (defaults), the rest is Maxis.
