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.
Our model today is Lydia Silva. She's wearing a Spice brocade and brown ash, one piece suit.

This swim suit uses the Maxis blue swim suit mesh. The alpha was modified to cover more of the upper leg and bottom. (No wedgies..lol)

I have all EP's and am not sure which EP the Maxis swimsuit mesh belongs to. If you install it and it doesn't appear in your game, just remove the package from your downloads folder.


Copy the package to your Documents\EA Games\Sims2\Download folder.

Update: I was informed by HystericalParoxysm that the Maxis swimsuit is in Sims2 so you won't need the EP's to use this.

Very nice swim! How do you get your sims to walk in the water? If your sim isn't walking, then how do you get that background? Thanx for the swim!

Very nice. I like the colours and the style looks very much like some real swimsuits I've seen. Also, just so you know, the default Maxis swimsuit isn't from any EP, so you shouldn't need any EPs (certainly not all three) for this to work.

I'm glad you liked the suit. I figured it's about time I give back as a way to compensate for all the wonderful downloads I've collected. :-)

The sims are actually on a seaside lot that I downloaded and placed on the shoreline. The ground is 'water colored over sand.' I also added palm trees to the lot. There is a kewl one that leans way over, but I cropped it out. :-)

(secret) It is a 'dumb recolor'. I used ULEAD photoimpact. It's way more affordable than Photoshop. I scanned a picture of a fabric sample that I liked and modified the Maxis alpha to cover more of the leg and bottom. then on the template, I pasted in the fabric colors. If you can't scan and paste with the equipment you have, you can always pixel edit. :D

Thanks. I wasn't sure because I bought and installed Sims2, university and Nightlife all at one.

I...will never be a memory.
