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:
TopShirtFitted_meshBra - Bra top with mesh

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

TopBra_bikiniTie - Bikini, tied in back
TopBra_bikiniHalter - Bikini halter

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.

Default Works like a charm...
I myself noticed the difference right away after taking one of my female sims into CAS.

Definitely made a difference in how the breast looks now. Much more conformed. And the little clip on the underside is gone now. I'm a horrible Mesher and Milkshape is still a little new to me as I'm still playing with it. I'm not proficient with it at all. But since you pointed this out I had to take advantage of this. I use Jonha's sliders and I didn't have any issues with it at all. Almost all the female sims in my game are in the range if AA - DD...Going beyond a DD is a little too much for my taste. DDD & E & beyond sizes just tend to look a little gawdy. But hey, I'm a guy...What do I know? heh

Thanks a bunch.

Just wanted to let you know I use several nude defaults, Peggy, Kano, Trealia and this mod creates a line inbetween the waist and hips that also goes through the arms. Like the top and bottom of my sim women are mismatched. Also it does not seem to work with the in game weight slider, when I try to make fat sims the upper body does not change size and the hands and a part of the head just look crazy.

I was thinking that I will remove it now and save it because Im not patched to 1.26 and was thinking I might be getting this problem because of that if no one else is having this problem with fat sims. Do you think this could be because of the patch?

Hi GnatGoSplat !

First, thank you very much for your beautiful mod

Otherwise, I confirmed what mekia02 said "this mod creates a line in between the waist and hips that also goes through the arms"

Here is a picture that shows the line :

This problem happens when I use a top for my sim female, but there's no problem when I use a dress or a complete outfit. My game is patched to version 1.26.

Excuse me for my bad english because I'm French

The line is visible even with the default EA meshes, but I agree, it looks more visible with these replacement meshes, especially with increased muscle tone. Unfortunately, I don't know the cause. I've tried re-extracting the meshes from CTU and doing a binary compare to my master - they are identical. I've compared UV mapping and normals with the original, they are also identical. I'll continue to look into it, but I'm not sure if I'll ever figure out what causes it.

@mekia02, these replacement meshes worked even before I patched up, so I'm going to say your problem is probably a conflicting mod. In my game, I do see a line similar to what Blackguard posted, but nothing like what you described and the weight slider definitely works in my game. I don't think it would hurt to patch up and see if that fixes it, but if it's a conflicting mod, then that probably won't help.

Wow ! Nice work ! But is there a way to have only the roundness of it ?, cause the ''filling the gap under the breast'' thing give strange look to some of my favorite female sims, but the roundness it gives is just so perfect, I can't go without it !

Just asking ! If it's too complicated or long to do, it's ok !
Thanks anyway, it really add that realistic touch !

This is what I get in my game:

This only happens when the sim is nude. The weight slider must be exactly halfway for the line to disappear. Going to the left or right of that exaggerates the separation. My fat sims have a bigger gap, the bottom half of a fat sim will stay fat but the upper body goes back to mid weight. ALSO the hands and face get crazy distortion, making them basically indistinguishable. I will try to post a pic of that. I have several non default skins but this problem happens on all skins even the EA skins but only with the nude top . If sim showers with a bra or any top on this won't happen.

This sim has EA skin , the top is nude, and weight is fat (far right). The face did not distort in this one.

I ran Delphy's dashboard and it says that none of my skins, tops, this mod conflict. But I was thinking a conflict with this and a nude top mod.

Yes, it's probably a conflict with the nude top mod. Try installing S3PE, double click on the .package file you downloaded here, and delete all the items with "Nude" in the name. That should eliminate the conflict.

Thanks for the fix. The vertical seam is fixed, but the horizontal gap isn't. Is there any way to fix that? Looks like the coordinates for the top half z-axis is slightly out, although I know nothing about how these things work.
