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.
My Sim kids are itching to get into the water. So I made them a bunch of new swimsuits! There are two styles for boys and two styles for girls, and all the swimwear comes in three colour schemes.

The first style is a basic swimsuit for boys. It comes in navy, red, and gold and has white details. You'll need the mesh from my Basic Boxers for Kids for these to show up.



The second style is a cute ruffled tankini for girls. The straps tie at the shoulders. (The straps may look a bit blurry, but that's just a problem with my computer; it doesn't like alpha meshes. If you have a machine that's not geriatric, the suits should display fine.)



Next are some outfits with rash guard tees for boys and girls. All of these outfits come with a logo tee and matching bottoms (trunks for boys and boy-leg bottoms for girls) and have matching flip-flops. These outfits can be worn as Swimwear and as Everyday.



Enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
girls' ruffle swimsuit = 2010
boys' rash guard tee & trunks = 2048
girls' rash guard tee & suit = 2000

Additional Credits:
Thanks to fanseelamb, Nouk, melodie9, and Maxis for the hairstyles. The freckles were extracted by Damage Inc356. The cool sunglasses are by tamo.
