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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
There was a problem with the UV suit mesh which made it act as a default mesh and override one of the Maxis outfits (as well as a few of my own!). Please re-download the mesh and recolours.

Yes, I know that toddlers can't actually swim. But mine like to splash in puddles. Plus, there are some cool custom objects out there, like Echo's Functional Wading Pool and rebecah's Toddler Swim Tube. I thought it would be nice if toddlers didn't have to get their clothes wet!

So here are a whole bunch of bathing suits, swim trunks, and UV suits. There should be something here to suit every taste.

First we have some basic swim trunks for boys. They all have Maxis characters on the left leg. This is a new mesh, which is included in the zip file.

Then I thought I'd better make some swim shorts for girls. Theirs are layered over bathing suits for extra coverage. These use the same mesh as the boys' swim trunks (but a copy of the mesh is also included in the zip file).

Some of my girls don't want to wear shorts, so I made them some plain bathing suits. Four are a basic tank style and have bunnies on the front. The other four are a halter style and come in two different patterns. All the girls' bathing suits use the onesie mesh from my Teddies for Toddlers Collection.

You must download the mesh for these to show up!

And then I thought about the sun and the fact that my Sims don't have sunscreen. So I had to give them something to protect their little shoulders. There are eight colours of the UV sun suit. All are wearable by both boys and girls. This is a new mesh, and it's included in the zip file.

All of the swimwear is categorized as Everyday. I thought that would be the most practical.

Polygon Counts:
swim trunks/shorts = 1650
UV sun suit = 1648

Additional Credits:
A big thanks to melodie9, HystericalParoxysm, and fanseelamb for the cute toddler hairstyles!

Thanks you so much fakepeeps7. I just love you clothing, this will be perfect with my swim tube. I used one of your rompers for my toddler now they can have an actual swimsuit. Thanks for sharing you wonderful creations.

The cuteness! The cuteness is overwhelming zomg! These would look *so* cute on little toddlers who live at the beach, eating sand and stuff. Do sim toddlers eat sand? I think they do. I've never had a toddler live at the beach. But that will soon change now that they have this adorable swimwear. Thank you!

PS: I always adore your pics too. They're just so darn cute!

These are so cute! I love the chubby diaper butt on the girls' swimsuits. :}

You are so fabulous. I just downloaded rebecah's toddler swim tube and was looking for swim suits. You must be a mind reader. Keep up the amazing work. 90% of my downloaded kids clothes comes from you. My Sims love your designs.

these are fantastic! The only problem I have with them is ...... choosing which one my Sim toddler should have!!!!
#10 Old 12th Aug 2008 at 2:36 AM
You have no idea how much it used to annoy me that toddlers had to be fully dressed to splash around in the wading pool. I don't even know to just leave them in undies/nappies for that. Thank you thank you, kiss on cheek.

The blond hairstyles you mentioned (boy and girl) are by melodie9. The curly boys' hair is by HystericalParoxysm.

Wow, I especially love the clothing on the second picture. I think I´ll convert some of them for toddler boys, too.
#21 Old 19th Aug 2008 at 9:18 AM
These are precious. I also downloaded Rebecah's swimtube for toddlers and most of my Sims have swimming pools.

Thank you! These are truely awesome. I was looking at teh video, and I saw ridable horses, elephants and even a cow! Seeing as I am a cow 'lurva' I had to download it! You are a master at this stuff, and I will certainly be downloading some more fo your stuff. Rebecah, you are the reason why my toddler sims are very happy now!

Anything Boys can do, girls can do better.
