Updated 17 Sept 2008: Fixed issue with the fat morph asploding on the teen female halter top. Please redownload!

[size=4][color=indigo]Modesty Set?[/header1]

After getting Apartment Life, I was instantly smitten with the adorable textures and meshes for the clothes they had. However, I was NOT pleased with how much skin was showing on otherwise adorable outfits. Bellies hanging out all over the place! There's a time and place for that thing, and it's called the beach!

Yes, I'm a little old lady at heart. But I know I'm not the only one who tends to not use outfits that show too much skin!

So I fixed it. All of the outfits for teen and adult female (and those elder outfits that share adult female textures) are no longer midriffy!

I realize this may not be to everyone's taste and some people may like them just the way they were to begin with - but instead of calling me a puritan or something, just pass on by and find something else to fit your taste, k?

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Default Replacements![/header1]

All files here are default replacements - [b]they will completely replace the original outfits with my changes.
If you don't like that, don't download them! I have no plans to make non-defaults of these. If someone else wants to do that, go right ahead - I made these for my own use and figured I'd upload them to share. Don't ask for non-defaults or I will come to your house and eat all your pasta!

The textures are compressed as much as SimPE would let me compress them (no texture quality loss, by the way) so these should be relatively small in size despite being defaults.

[size=4][color=indigo]Other outfits?[/header1]

Yes, I'm thinking I might do the same thing for a lot of other too-revealing outfits from the base game and EPs. I work on my own time, my own schedule, and do 'em how I want, so please don't whine for me to do them - if I want to, I will. If I don't, I won't. Currently, I want to, but have a lot of other things to do too.

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Downloads are in Comments![/header1]

Because of the fact that I have nine different sets here, I am putting the downloads in the comments.

[b]The file attached to this first post is a useless file which you do not need so don't download it!
It's only attached because I have to in order for this thread to work as a proper download thread... and because it'll amuse me to see how many people download it anyway without having read this at all.

[size=4][color=indigo][b]Thanks to:[/header1]

Thank you! I can actually USE these outfits now. I hate my sims' bellies showing all the time. One outfit? I could understand. Most of them? No thanks!

Yay! While I don't mind SOME of the belly-baring tops it's always nice to have more modest stuff for our Simmies!

downloads the teen halter-tops without delay

Now I can re-play my family in another neighbourhood and have some DECENT stuff that both my sim and my sister can wear as teens...

This is great! I usually play historical neighborhoods but recently downloaded the Megahood and boy was all the belly bothering me. I also really like all those AL textures, but I find all the skin on display really limits who can wear those outfits. But you've fixed it! Thanks you. :)

For years now while dressing up my Sims, I've had tics in my eyes while looking for outfits and this has been avaliable since 2008. ~Facegrenade.~ So much cursing could have been avoided.

I had 3 main issues with Maxis clothing from the very beginning.

1. The high-waist pants/skirts (this ain't the 80's). 2. The exposing nature of the majority of female clothing. All my female middle-aged sims who had kids (and therefore wouldn't look like models anymore) were all walking around in the same few outfits, before I began downloading custom content. 3. No tomboy sim girls! I like to give my Sims different personalities and so it's been frustrating that my only choices of clothing styles has been slutty, punk or overly casual (in the boring way).

This website has brought Sims 2 back to the future! (See what I did there?) :')

Thank you very much for the upload.
