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.

Hey you all!
Today i bring you 8 sets of separate bottoms for your elder ladies. A few people requested nice bottoms for elders, and i began this project many months ago, but i was always to lazy to finish it
now, in the holiday, i can finally upload.
The basegame bottoms for elders are really to ugly, i never used one of them.

You can download every set separately, every rar-file includes the mesh with its recolours. The sets are all basegame compatible, no EP required.
Every mesh has a fat morph and the outfits are bumpmapped.

Here are the sets:

H&M Jeans: Heels and Sneakers

In the left you can see the Sneakers Jeans for your sporty grannies and in the right the elegant Heels version. Jeans with Sneakers comes with two recolours, the other set with three ones.
I like the shape of these, but the stupid thing about them is that the belly is free. so, i would use them with such tops that go over the pants, like these great ones by tamo.
(i will also probably do some tops by myself)

Nightlife Shorts and Kasa Pants

These are two sets of converted bottoms, which came with NL. In the left the ("casual preppy") shorts and in the right the "Kasa pants". Some casual and normal pants. The Kasa pants are also a bit belly free, so look for some nice tops. Or let your grannies go with a free belly
Every set includes 4 recolours.

Nightlife Wide Pants and Open for Business Long Skirt

In the right you can see the wide pants which came with NL. they are nice an d simple, very suitable for stylish grannies i think. There are the three original colours.
In the left are the converted skirts, which came with OFB. The shape is also very suitable for grannies and i love to dress them in these beautiful, simple skirts. Comes with 5 recolours.

Basegame Skirts and Pants

And, finally, some bottoms from the basegame. In the left you can see the kneelenght skirt. okay, maybe it´s a bit shorter. But i think it´s suitable for chic/business grannies. i do not use the for adults, however.
In the right are the "tailored" pants from the basegame. these are great for elders. they are really simple, not so stylish, and i think perfect for grannies.
The skirts come with 7 recolours and the pants with 5 ones. I couldn´t get them all in one pic, so the remaining colours are in an extra picture

So, i hope you will like these. I also think of doing some tops to wear with these.
See you

The shorts and both skirts turned out quite nice, granny shaped, and good looking. Thanks for this set, it will be quite useful and was really needed.

The basegame pants look a bit too slender to me. Were they adjusted to be more granny shaped? The pants with bare bellies could be adjusted. If they have a 3D ridge, that can be removed, and the UV map and/or texture can be adjusted to cover the belly. Do you have any plans to do this? If not, and you don't mind, I might do it later.

We could also make or find some untucked shirts for grannies, and then they can wear those with "bare belly" pants and their belly won't show.

Have I told you how much I love you? I just have to say, you keep my elders clothed. I think that without your conversions, that my elders would probably run around my game naked...thank you! *sigh*

Edit for additional chatter:

Untucked stuffs for elders????? I may just die now....

thank you all for these lovely comments!
it´s great you like this set.

Cat, yes i think i could have done this (i even thought about it), but i was a bit too lazy... ^^ if you would like to, you can edit it of course. But for me it´s okay that they work with such tops like tamo´s
and i couldn´t find untuckables...

Thank you so much! I have this one sim whom I've had forEVER and haven't aged up yet, even though she has grandkids and everything, because I didn't want her to get all fugly. With these normal, non bow-legged options I think I'm ready to go for it! LOL :oD

Dustfinger, thank you for taking over where Maxis left off! These are desperately needed in the game and I'm grateful for your hard work on these sets. Good job!
