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.
Do you have a sexy elder?

Because I do! I absolutely hate the limited clothing selection for elders. The EA store does make it a little better, but still there are perfectly good clothes that are only available for teens and adults. For example, something as simple as a bra.



The folks at EA seem to think that grannies can't wear bras with under wires...yet, they give them a flimsy strapless bra. I can only imagine the sagging old bitties they have running around their office. Yeah, go ahead and picture THAT image. The bras have one channel (like the original) and are found in sleepwear only.



Next up is a fitted tank top. Once again, EA decided our elders can't wear anything too tight. I guess they figured since they can't have bras with good support, wearing tight shirts only adds insult to injury. So yeah...now picture THAT image! The tanks have one channel and are found in everyday, athletic and sleepwear. I also found - like the original - that the bottom of the tank will slightly overlap some pants. This is a partmask issue and simply can't be avoided with every single clothing item out there.



And lastly...what's more sexy than a string bikini! Your elder ladies can now lounge by the pool in their itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, yellow polka dot bikinis. The bikini top and bottom (separate pieces) have one channel each and are found in swimwear.

To avoid redundant files, these conversions all pull textures from their original adult counterparts. Meaning that if you, for some reason, have a default replacement texture on the adult versions, it will be applied to the elder versions, too.

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.

You are right that the bra and tank top are absolutely necessary! I don't know if very many of my elder women will want to wear the string bikini, but I'm sure there's at least one who might like it! Thank you!

Sorry for going off topic, I just didn't like how EA portraits elders. But this definitely helps giving them more selection in life, not like once they reach elder age, they just sit around waiting to die.


Oh man, you have no idea how this hunched over elderly stoop pisses me off. I loathe it and it needs to be changed. Who walks that way but the most decrepit elderly. No one in my fam ever walked that way. Father died at 91, straight-backed as they made them.

. . . because sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hang onto.

It looked like that regardless if the sim was really thin or fat. The bikini top looks great though, just wish I could use the matching bottom to it.


I am experiencing the same problem. I have bloom's sexy feet replacement in my game do you think this could be the reason?

Edit: Well I took out the feet and deleted my caches and the feet are definitely not the problem. I have no idea what could be causing this but it's also happening on the briefs you converted for elders as well.
