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.

Ooh I like the Adult Male changes idea... What kind of man wears a sweat shirt, jeans and... sandles!? Just think of their poor wives, girlfriends, and children... "you're not wearing that, are you?"

You make the best threats. :D

Thanks for these, nabbing a good half. The neighbourhood I play most it's winter half the time, so midriffs hanging out everywhere really wasn't realistic. Oh and especially thank you for the jacket with the added undershirt - it looks so much better!

Thank you! I was so sick of limiting my Sims to select Free Time and H&M clothing just to cover up a bit of skin. Gracias!

I´d love to have you!

What you´ve done here is such an improvement! They should really send their designers to a "School of good taste". Thanks,

Ahhhh that's what we needed - a little decorum. I don't use the in-game clothing but with some of these outfits I can bring a bit of decency back to the neighbourhood.

Will download later when I leave this annoying place called work!

Thank you! I loved the AL pack and snagged all of these. I'm not a huge fan of "tights" under skirts (I prefer pantyhose myself) but I have to say it *really* completes the outfits. Amazing how such a small addition (adding tights to a short skirt) make it look a million times less trashy!

I can't wait for your other sets to come out!

Again, thank you so much for sharing these with us!

I'm so glad you made another set. This is very useful, I never let my sims wear Maxis clothing before because of all that skin showing.. thank you very much for this improvement!

EXACTLY!! THANK YOU!! As a 36yo mom, I am a on the conservative side of clothing tastes. I didn't look, but were these all teen? We need to do something with ADULT FEMALE, as well. I hate some of those belly-toting things for ADULTS. I mean.....moms shouldn't look like that, right?????

These are such a wonderful idea! I use mostly custom clothing mostly because of the way Maxis always seems to want females to look trashy....and always hated that even if my playable Sims looked good, the townies still looked like they needed to be hanging out on the corner (if you get what I mean). I am looking forward to seeing any other sets you may do...thank you so much!

I stated what was what in the posts. This covers teens, adults, young adults, a couple elder outfits. I agree with you wholeheartedly - which is why I already fixed the adult stuff.

I seriously downloaded just about everything here. I love the tights. Love how now my grown-up Sims' hemlines are practical! I'm more on the modest side, so this is a godsend. Thanks.

I'm so tired of attempting to find tops and bottoms for my sims that don't show off the belly. I'd gotten to where I wasn't using alot of the games seperate clothing and so many outfits because of that.

Wonderful idea, and very very appreciated.
