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 SO much! I don't think I know anyone who would go out in the outfits the way maxis made them.

Seriously, I would just feel really uncomfortable in them O_O

Good job!

I'm glad these are in separate files so I can pick and choose which ones I want to use the Modesty Set replacements for, and which ones I want to use the mystical one's defaults for. :D

a87370ylgrc - If you mean the gypsy-looking stuff, Phaenoh de-bellied those. I kinda felt the slight bit of belly showing fit the style so I didn't do them, but if you want them de-bellied, search for her profile here on MTS2.

Agree and with the ladies plz I have that problem with the outfits, why so much belly, being short or inappropriate footwear for the outfit. Thankyou very much, you've made Maxis outfits useful.

Yes! Finally someone, and a brilliant someone, has though of making these obscenities wearable in the sim community! Thank you! And if you have to look for inspiration, in the future, if you wish to make more clothes try or other clothes websites! Thank you!

I hate uncovered bellies too, great job, what were Maxis thinking? Great job anyway, I've always wondered why the guys always had nice comfy warm clothes and not the girls.

Your version of these outfits is much better than the Maxis ones. I always found it frustrating how every other outfit had some kind of belly showing. I have never thought that look tasteful and I like to dress my sims well. With your replacements, it actually looks like my sims repect themselves, which is pleasing to my eyes. Thanks!

It is easy to hate. Anybody can do it. But to love others, even those that despise us, takes the strength of a warrior.

Thank god!
I've been going nuts!
I usually like making realistic sims, and every once in a while one family that is really crazy and all. And at times I like making stereotypes.
Anyhow, mainly normal families. This belly thing has been bugging me for ages. For instance, I don't know anyone who goes in short skirts showing loads of belly in late autumn. It's weird.

Thank you for making those. It really bothers me how slutty the clothing for teenagers (and even for children) is in the game.

I recently actually posted on the official board asking for more modest, but nice looking, clothing in Sims 3 but I got slammed by the other posters on there. Only like two of them agreed with me. The rest of them didn't like the idea.

No child should ever be wearing a bathingsuit with the middle exposed or a bikini. And no teenager should ever be dressed like a hooker.

I love what you did with the AFBodyMandarinJacketCapri set. Looks so much better. I wish someone would do that for the FT version too.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much. I needed this desperately because I had a chubby sim with the mandarin jacket outfit as everyday and the jogging suit as athletic wear, PLUS she was a fitness enthusiast and went jogging everyday, ugh... too much chubby belly! Thank you, this will help my game a lot! If I can get to play it without my computer crashing.
