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.

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

Well, I went and did this for Apartment Life, and that got me looking at a lot of the other outfits in the game... and actually, one of the worst offenders is the base game, with short skirts and bellies sticking out all over the place.

I'm not a prude, but I don't think it's too much to ask that our sims look properly covered up. Thus, I have fixed a ton of outfits - pulling up pants, pulling down shirts, and adding leggings/tights and undershirts. If you want your sims to have it all hanging out, then don't download. I've done everything separately so if you want a particular set and don't want the rest, you can pick and choose.

[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]

I've got several outfits already done from several EPs. The Apartment Life set is already uploaded and available here. I do plan on doing more - when, I don't know. Don't bug me or I'll throw eggs at your dog.

Why didn't I do certain outfits (like the one adult female bra-with-sheer-black-top, or the teen female midriff tops that match the swimwear)? Because I didn't think it warranted it - either it was clearly meant to be skimpy and showing too much skin, or matched a swimsuit and was supposed to look like a swimsuit with shorts over or whatever... Basically, if it ain't here, I didn't feel like doing it, but MOST stuff from the base game is here.

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

Because of the fact that I have a ton of 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.

I know this is getting more into social commentary than might be appropriate for a forum about The Sims, but I hated the belly-baring stuff for teens because of the growing trend of sexualizing younger and younger girls.

Dear Maxis, not every teenage girl wants to be a Bratz doll.

Love,
Someone who spent her teenage years in broomstick skirts and t-shirts that covered her bra

Thanks once again, HP, for making me much more comfy with my daughter playing the Sims! I can put these in and not have to point out that her simmies can wear those clothes, but she can't. Now they will dress more like her! You are made of pure awesome!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I HATE seeing teens show so much skin - and having it in a game that teens plays makes it seem acceptable. What was Maxis thinking? Thank you for fixing this!

This set could be subtitled, "Because not everyone lives in Southern California in July." It's not so much about modesty with me (although, like starryeyd_babe, I find the sexualization of the teens disturbing), but that the clothing designers for this game didn't even seem to think about or care that not everyone lives in or wants to make believe an always-hot climate. It drove me crazy that not one of the short-skirted teen outfits had so much as kneesocks.

So, thank you. Thank you very very much.

Wonderful! The belly-baring styles have bugged me since the base game came out, years ago now. Thank you!!!

oh goodness! i am LOVING all those added tights! they make the outfits look SO much more complete, not to mention less skanky! the bellies everywhere were a mild annoyance for me, but all those TEENYTINY skirts with a mile of leg hanging out were practically the bane of my existence. thank you so much for taking the time and effort to do all this! i am VERY greatful.

This is a very neat idea. Some of them didn't bother me to much, others, like the leopard print dress, I would never use in my game anyway, but I snagged a couple of files. Especially the TFBodyHipBlazerFlaredPants one, I always loved it but without any shirt underneath it looks odd. Thank you!

You're amazing, HP, you know that?
As a teen, I can sorta see where Maxis is coming from with these outfits, but one some they've just gone too far!
Thank you so much; now my Sims can wear clothes just like mine (a.k.a. cover up my belly button)! XD

you, madam, are a genius and a goddess. thank you so much for all your amazing work. this is a great idea! I'll be so glad that next time tosha go walks by one of my sim's houses i won't have to look at her little tummy! and yes, the butt-writing on the workout wear annoyed me to no end too.

What a great fix!!
Finally, I can get some use out of maxis clothes without having half-naked sims running around where I don't want them.

I have made a point to go through the different categories when doing this stuff, so if there's formalwear in other EPs/SPs that needs similar treatment, I'll be sure to do so. But I think you're probably more offended by shoulders showing than me.


You're right, of course. I didn't think it through when I posted. It's not like you could add a t-shirt to an evening gown, now is it? My bad.

Thank you for fixing them! :3

I don't usually comment, but I have to say thank-you for making default workout clothes WITHOUT the stupid tribal design on the butt! I had no problem with the short skirts and the bellies, but ever since those stupid butt-design pants have come out in real life, I've loathed them. Even moreso in the Sims. I really like these workout clothes otherwise, so thank-you thank-you THANK-YOU for getting rid of that butt-patch and making them defaults!

Thank you so much for this set! There were so many little annoyances with the original maxis outfits like the butt writing and short skirts...way too skanky. But now that you kindly fixed most of the problems, I can finally use some of the maxis clothes instead of relying so much on custom content.

You made my day with these. I love what you did with the Apartment Life clothes. This was a really good idea. Thank you. I can't wait to see more of these! You make Maxis clothes usable again! Yay! I'd give you rum, but since we're on site with young members, you'll have to settle for a cookie instead. Is chocolate chip okay?

Thanks again! =)

Thank you so much for doing this! I've avoided many of the Maxis outfits because they looked so skanky - now they are useable. Though some of them still aren't my "cup of tea" at least they don't make me feel sick when I look at them!
