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.
Fixed the bumpmap on the maternity version! - 8/3/2011

My mom's birthday is coming up so I've been browsing some of her usual clothing spots to find her a gift. He favorite store is Lane Bryant, a store specializing in plus sized clothing. It was there that I stumbled upon this adorable tunic which inspired this clothing set!



Summer Tunic

The summer tunic is a loose top made with the plus sized sim in mind. It's a custom mesh made from the EA baseball t-shirt. The tunic has completely redone bone assignments to assure proper animation, this is demonstrated here.



The tunic has three channels with two channel layouts to create different looks. The first channel layout (pictured left) is used to create a more bohemian look. The second (pictured right) can be used for more traditional styles. The tunic is found in everyday and formal for females Young Adult and Adult.

Now With Pregnant Morphs!

The tunic now comes with pregnant morphs! If you want the tunic to be usable by pregnant sims, download the MATERNITY version of the tunic and remove the original. You cannot have both in game - nor do you need to - because they will conflict.



Summer Capris



The second piece in this set is a simple pair of capris. But wait, these look like the EA capris! Indeed they are similar, but there are some differences. The cuff is much broader and the back deco-pockets are different.

The capris pants have three channels: main pants, cuff and back pocket flaps. The capri pants are found in everyday and formal, for adults and young adults.

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.

Super cute! Love them, especially the top. One question though - does the top work for maternity? It seems like it'd be a -great- top for pregnant ladies, large and small.

I didn't test for maternity sims (am doing that now). If not, I already have Cmar's tutorial opened!

Added the pregnancy morph!

I love this set! I have sims of all sizes in my game, and they desperately need better clothes. I hope you expand this collection. Thank you so much!

Thanks for this! I actually work for Lane Bryant and I think I recognize this tunic, lol. Most my Sims tend to be on the larger side (art mimics reality, huh?) and some clothes they can't wear because cut the hair up or something gets funked up in the seam where the bottom meets the top. I'm looking forward to the rest of your collection! Love to see some sexier stuff eventually 8; )

I'd love to have these for myself, but since it is not feasible, I'll enjoy them through my Sims.

Thank you very much for making these morphs! The styles appropriate for plus-size sims are so limited,this is a great addition.. and making them maternity as well was wonderful!

Love it and THANK YOU!!

Is there some special hack/mod thing I need to download in addition, in order to get my preggos to wear these? I hear about pregnancy-enabled clothing, but I'm always a bit confused as to what-all is required.

Do my pregnant sims have to be plus sized to wear this? Because I think this top would be cute on all of my pregnant sims
