This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Since there is no pregnancy morph for men as of yet, the easiest way to avoid floaty head syndrome when your male sims get preggers is to enable maternity on them.

I did these for myself, so I figured I would share them so that you can be lazy and not have to do it yourself. I used Delphy's CAS Texture Unitool to enable the 'maternity' option on these clothes. I have tested it in game for several days with no problems at all.

I labeled them all fairly clearly, so feel free to pick and choose which ones you want or keep them all. I initially only had the PJ's for teens and Adults enabled in game, which worked out great. It made it obvious when they were pregnant because they would just switch to that outfit. The problem was I didn't make it enabled for All categories; so when my insane sim decided he wanted to wear formal clothes while playing with the sprinkler ( ) I got the floaty head syndrome.
I personally do not like making something available to all categories, so I instead just made sure I had clothing for each category enabled so that I didn't have to worry about that. But if you want to have the 1 outfit thing going for you, feel free to change it with Delphy's tool.

Bad case of insomnia so forgive me for my horrid run-on sentances I think my insane sims are rubbing off on me.

They seem to randomly choose which outfits for each category will be their maternity clothes if you have more than 1 type for each category. Every one of my sims always chose different outfits from the others, but that is because i have everything with maternity enabled; not a select few.

** Also Sorry for the horrible quality of the pictures, I forgot to put everything back on high settings, which prompts me to restart the game, which I am too exhausted to do.

Easiest way:
Get Delphy's TS3 Install Helper Monkey if you don't already have it
and just right click the files, or double click them; whichever you prefer.

**Also make sure you delete your cache files located in your ..My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
ie: CASPartCache,simCompositorCache

**If you already have existing floaty head sims, just click your sim and select 'choose outfit' then select whichever outfit you would like from there.

Hope these will be of some use to others
