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.
Hi guys!

(Looking for a TS4 version of this dress? See: Bella's dress TS3 to TS4 )

This dress had been sitting in my projects folder for, what feels like decades. The reason was really because of the fact that it has a super small bug in that was incredibly easy to fix. But, you know, laziness... Life... you know the drill

ABOUT THE DRESS

Quote:
Bella's review:
I used to say: "I'll stop wearing red when they make a redder colour" This is that moment!


Specifically made for Bella, but can obviously be worn by any sim! The idea I had was really just to have a better dress from the converted TS2 > TS3 one, and something that would feel like it could have been the ts3's Bella dress! Now, the corset idea was an inspired idea from this lovely TS2 Bella dress ! I didn't rip or stole the textures though, I merely drew them myself! And, this version has details on the underboob so you got more of a lovely corset-y feeling to it!

Speaking of boobs, Another issue I've always had with any Bella dresses were mainly that the side area was a bit 'too' revealing for me. Especially with some bigger bazoinks It just felt more like it would make the dress a touch unrealistic, so I tried fixing this myself with this dress! It was easier said than done, but done well though!

It comes with 2 versions. Both have slight alterations done the "darker band". One is your good old traditional Bella dress, the other a more modernised version. Both are merged in the preset versions!

TECHNICAL BITS:
Category: Everyday, Formal.
Gender: Female
Age: Young adult, Adult.
Morphs: Normal, Thin, Fat, Fit. (This dress has no maternity morph)
Channels: 2, on both versions. Dress part and the band (See images)
Type: Full body dress

Notice: The dress looks a bit blurry in-game in my pictures but that's really due to the fact that I don't happen to have a HQ mod in my version of the game  If you do have an HQ mod, then hopefully it will be sharper!

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.

Ohh, I bet this will look great on sims with many different body types! And it's nice to have a formal dress that's sexy without being too short or showing too much cleavage. Thank you for making it :)

Yeah! It really does seem like a very figure-friendly dress, where there shouldn't be too much worries about which body type your sim has  Thanks for the sweet comment!

If you're mainly concerned with having CAS loading too slowly, you could use Master Controller's compact CAS mode to condense all of the extra presets for your clothes so that CAS loads faster.

You have been chosen. They will come soon.

This is the best version of Bella's dress I've seen. Great job!
