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 present untucked turtleneck tops for grandma, 3 striped, 9 heathered.

What Pants / Skirts Will Work With These Turtlenecks?
* all of my default and custom granny pants and skirts
* all of Cocomama's granny bottom separates
* all of my alternate shape versions of tamo's, dustfinger's, and t2suggas' pants or skirts

creators: To make tops or bottoms that fit with our separates, match bone weights to efBottomNude at the hips / tummy / butt.

white and black, heathered

striped purple (darker stripes than shown), striped orange, striped leaf green
dark granny jeans by me (mesh here in post #2,
default granny slacks w/ heels by me (see post #4),
default granny slinky skirt by me and plasticbox

heathered blue, red, green
tight skirt by tamo (alternate bone weights version by me),
black granny jeans by me (mesh here in post #2),
green tech skirt by tamo (alternate bone weights version by me)

Great work CatOfEvilGenius, another very welcome addition for gran's wardrobe. And now I understand what heathered is, its fluffy, cuddle soft, perfekt for little ones to rest their heads to when reading a bedtime story together.

update Oops! Please redownload the mesh and recolors. They now have better shading on the bottom hem, and the purple striped sweater has more visible stripes.

I'm sorry, but my grandma would have sincerely have had a boob job if she had appeared so droopy. Why does the Sims make "old" people look so clueless?

Older ladies aren't as perky as younger ladies, just a fact of life. I prefer the Maxis shape myself. If you prefer grannies with more supportive bras or with surgery, there are CC clothes on MTS2 and elsewhere with a more "perky" shape. Or you can mesh some yourself if you don't find what you'd like.
