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.

For those sultry days selling shiny seashells by the salty seashore, she needs swimmingly stylish swimwear!

For those plausibly proper recreational periods paddling about pensively in the primrose-lined pond, she needs prettily practical pantaloons!

For casting her line cautiously into the crystal clear creek, she needs craftily constructed corsetry!

And as if that is not enough, she needs them in six colors!

So, without further ado...

Here they are in natty navy blue, rip-roaring red, gorgeous green, perfectly pretentious purple, blatantly beguiling brown, and bitterly beautiful black.

Delicious, Aligeth, and I cannot understand why don't you entered these suits in the challenge (maybe in London were no chances to take a bath??? )

One could always take a swim in the Thames, lol.
Love the swimsuit, maybe one for the guys?

I am torn between which I think is cuter: the swimsuits or your prose? =D
Love them both! My Victorian Sims are sure to agree.

Thank you for such a wonderful upload!

My Victorian Hood now will have these styling women in their fashion swimsuits.
I am glad we have come a long way in the clothing department.
Thank You!

Gosh darn. I just dressed all my Victorian ladies in new swimsuits, but it looks like I'm going to have to plan new outfits for several of them. Your stuff is great! Your entry for the challenge this month was awesome, too bad you couldn't also enter these and your riding suits. Thanks for all these great clothes! Keep up the beautiful work

Thanks everybody.

I will try to get a bathing suit made for the gents soon.

I made these, and the riding habit additional colors once the Victorian London Challenge was done and turned in, and I had a chance to catch my breath.

I always get kinda fidgety if I make a period outfit of one type, to get on with making them at least one outfit in the other categories too. Then I get fidgety that every age and both sexes need all the outfit categories too...eeek!

Today though, I am actually PLAYING my Sims...weeeeeha!
