Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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.

This is fantastic HP! You are a goddess! I so hope you do this for the other EPs (especially Nightlife, all I use of the AF clothes are the jeans) Thanks again!
#28 Old 2nd Sep 2008 at 12:59 AM
Thanks so much! I've hated the belly-baring outfits since the base game came out. There's a lot of Maxis content I don't use because I just don't like the belly-baring look. I'm very happy to get these remeshes, and if you decide to re-do the content from the base game or the other EP's, I'll kiss your feet!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I was talking to my sister about that yesterday (who, incidentally, sent me this link). If I saw some chick in the mall wearing some of Maxis' outfits, my first thought would be "what a skank!" So why should my Sim wear them? It's not being prude, and it's not being overly modest. It's quite simply that in this culture there's a certain amount of skin that's acceptable to be showing, and this is well above and beyond that limit.

Thanks so much! I too didn't want THAT much skin showing. Even when clubbing I rarely see that much skin showing, and I live in a very liberally-minded place!

Would also love it if you did go ahead and do the other packs when you felt like it! I always love your stuff!

Ahh, thank you so much. I wonder why EAxis thinks everyone walks around with so much belly-skin showing? I hardly -ever- see that when I'm out. Anyway, thanks SO much for making these otherwise excellent outfits useable :D

ROFL! Too many, in fact!

Thanks HP!

You can never have too much yarn, fabric, or books.

Thank you for these. I just got the EP two days ago and it was like ... I guess this time the belly will be left without cover.
These are really nice.
I leave the trashy clothing for my trashy sims, but these are great for all of my ... other sims.

HP, your star continues to rise in my book I've always found that bare tommies should be the exception rather than the normal. This conversion, I guess, is a reasonable extension of the whole fansefem movement you've been heading. Thanks for doing that, too!

Thank you so, so much! These are perfect...such a refreshing change! Besides the obvious modesty issue, I also have a really big problem (no pun intended) with my overweight girls wearing belly-bearing outfits. I'm bigger than average, and I hated that my self-sim couldn't wear some of the new, really cute stuff. Thanks a million :D.

Ohh, you... you... puritan!

Thanks alot and more, for making my sims to look decent! I loved those new outfits also, but I didn't wan't my sims look like disreputable. After all, they have now their reputation to look after!
