This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
UPDATE added oepu's red recolor since MaxisTraum is no longer updating

--------------------------------------------------------

Maternity Shape

HystericalParoxysm made a cute alpha dress top. I thought it would make excellent maternity wear, so I added a pregnancy morph to the mesh. I also made the fat morph somewhat thicker in the torso. I did not change the regular shape at all.
The black recolor is HP's, it's in the original thread.

You need BOTH the original mesh and my pregnancy morph
You also need Squinge's "pregnant sims wear anything" hack





Two Three Recolors - match Family Fun

I like the matching family clothes that came with the Family Fun stuff pack.
I recolored HP's dress top to match that set of clothing. Family Fun NOT required.
Maternity wear and Family Fun go together, no?

There is a red flower recolor too. It was made by oepu with some edits by me (with permission).
I have added it here since MaxisTraum is no longer updating.

Look in the Related Pages tab for more FF matching clothes!





Thanks
Thanks for the makers of MilkShape, a great mesh tool that has brought me hours of joy. Thanks for wes_h and demon for their very useful MilkShape plugins. Thanks to the makers of SimPE. Thanks to HP for the dress top, of course, and oepu for giving me the idea to make more FF recolors and letting me use her alpha.

I went to squinge's "pregnant sims wear anything" site but I'm not sure which files I need to download

I have the base game only and I use Inteen

michiyo_asuka If you only have the base game, then my guess is you probably need the EP1 version, but I'm not sure. If you look at the page I link to, there is a thread in the forum titled "Pregant Sims" something or other. Look in that thread, the first post has several downloads in it. Grab the EP1 version, or maybe the EP1_InTeen version. Test them in your game, see which one works.

Or you can try dizzy's pregant sims wear any clothes mod. Not sure where it is, you'd need to google it or ask in the WCIF forum.

...does that original mesh still crash the game when the sim wearing an outfit using it tries to go to work?

Kickass, Cat! Thanks for doing this. I wore stuff with this shape all through my pregnancy.

Damage Inc356 - My dress top never caused crashes - it was made differently from the crashy ones.

I really love HP's dress top, but it didn't work for pregnancy. Whoop! I got it now! Haha, thanks so much for doing this.

One question, does this add the pregnancy morph to the original mesh, thus all recolors have the morph? Hope so.

Yes. You must have the original mesh and my file. All recolors of the original mesh will work as maternity wear.

Thanks so much, CatOfEvilGenius. I have been testing it and found that having TheMysticalOne's pregnancy morph allowing maxis clothes for maternity, the maxis bottoms clips the top. I use the untucked bottoms with this top and it works better. Just an observation.

lewisb40 That's because TheyMysticalOne's clothes use a different pregnancy shape than HP's untucked pants. All my maternity clothes are matched to HP's shape.

This was already one of my favorite meshes, and I love having preggo morphs on as many outfits as possible, so yay. :D

UPDATE 7/7/10

I have added the red dress top by oepu and me. It was buried in the upcoming items forum on Maxis Traum, but that site is no longer updating, so it is not going to be put in the official, organized pages there. So now you can easily find it here.

That's fantastic! I have some medieval tunics for this mesh so now I have some much needed variants on medieval maternity wear!
