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.

I like the game's built-in breast slider, but I found it made large breasts terribly unrealistic - too high and torpedo-y. I find they just don't look quite right until I make some adjustments using Delphy's Breast Slider mod. However, most of the base game bra and bikini tops have very little tolerance for anything other than the built-in breast slider. Using a breast slider mod to lower the vertical position or increase the scale, for example, results in an unsightly gap under the breasts - even despite the fact that all other outfits look fine.

These default replacement meshes take care of that problem, allowing for a greater range of adjustment. The breasts become fuller on the bottom and in the cleavage area. This will be the case even if you only use the default breast slider, so they won't look so much like they're sitting flat on an invisible shelf. They are for Teen, Young Adult, Adult, and Elder. They should be compatible with all slider mods, including the EA built-in breast slider.

These meshes have been re-boned, modeling them after a form-fitting mesh that has a high tolerance for breast slider mods (the 1-piece plunge swimsuit). On the Young Adult/Adult meshes, I made some additional fine adjustments to the bones weights to smooth out pokey vertices and a little UV remapping. This wasn't necessary on the Teen and Elder meshes because their breasts are much smaller and don't scale as much.

The meshes that were changed are:
Everyday
TopShirtFitted_meshBra - Bra top with mesh

Underwear
TopBra - Standard Bra
TopBra_Lace - Lace Bra
TopBra_Strapless - Strapless Bra

Swimwear
TopBra_bikiniTie - Bikini, tied in back
TopBra_bikiniHalter - Bikini halter

Other
TopNude - Nude top
TopBra_burnt - Burned bra when Sim is electrocuted/burned

UPDATE June 1, 2012 - The seam issue reported in this comment post has been fixed! Thanks to CmarNYC for discovering the cause of the problem in this thread and for writing the utility to fix it. The filename is still the same (BraBikiniNude_breastfix_v1.rar), but the file has been updated.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you for this mod. I hated how the breasts would looked and I always tried to avoid using the tops.

Nope, doesn't matter. It works with all breast sliders, though I personally use Delphy's.

Do your replacement meshes interfere with or negate the Muscle Slider Fix for Naked Teens and Elders? The one of the bras shown in one of the pictures for the muscle slider fix looks to be the same as one of the ones you list as fixing.
Thanks in advance.

I was actually unaware of the need for a Muscle Slider Fix since I usually play with naked blur intact so I never saw them losing muscle definition while naked. I took no additional steps to fix the issue in these meshes so I was prepared to say that yes, it probably would interfere or negate the Muscle Slider fix. However, I just tested this in the game, and the muscle definition slider seems to work fine on all the bra and nude meshes. I'm assuming we're talking about the EA muscle definition slider, but let me know if I'm misunderstanding.

@Sharner - I actually had Adult done 2-yrs ago! I procrastinate too much.

@kepazza - It should be compatible with all slider hacks.
