This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Summer time!! Well.. actually Summer is finishing But then you'll remember it with this swimsuit xDD

It's a strapless bikini for your teen, adult and young adult females The bottom has a recolorable belt. So the channels are: One only channel for the top and two for the bottom: bikini and belt.







Enjoy and happy simming!! ^^

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

These are really nice, thank you!

I'm always looking for realistic looking swim wear for my simmies, so many of them are just weird & really revealing. Not enough stuff well .. like this! :D

Edited. Entirely. I had a weird issue where my sims teen upper body mesh was somehow being interfered with or replaced.

I took your swimsuits out entirely, and nothing else, and it stopped misbehaving. However...

I downloaded some new clothes... and it started happening again. I took out all of those clothes, fired up the game, and it stopped. Again.

Apparently, there's something really screwy going on with my game, but I am no longer sure that it has anything to do with your swimsuit - or anyone else's - so, I guess I'm spending the night taking *everything* out and slowly putting things back til I find where the problem is.

Not that I should be babbling here about that. The short of it is that I just wanted to apologize for blaming the issue on your suit, even though removing your suit apparently coincided with the problem (temporarily) ceasing. Sorry about that.

Thanks for the download. It's a very cute suit... if I can just get other stuff to stop misbehaving. :D

cyaun, its because the top and bottom is the same mesh for both adult and teen so it gives the teen the weird body shape. Their are some clothes out there that have this effect.

The gap looks like this: http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k...zelbliz/gap.jpg

Nina, could you make a version for teens that uses the teen body? Because it would be nice if we were able to combine this awesome bikini with other bikini tops and bottoms.

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
