Bathing Beth – Retro Swimsuit for Teen-Elder

With summer here, I thought I’d share this swimsuit. It’s another piece of clothing made with my Beth Harmon sim in mind, but is sure to look good on anyone. Beth is in her swimsuit for probably less than a minute in the entire series, but it was cute, and I’m a perfectionist who needs to recreate the sim as accurately as possible, so here we are.

Luckily for me, the retro swimsuit from TS4 Seasons was a close match. A conversion and simple mesh edit were all I needed for it to be fit for Beth. Gone were the buttons and in its place a belt clasp, and voila, I give you Bathing Beth.

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.

Thank you for these. Funnily enough my maternal grandmother was a seamstress and worked in a factory making such bathing suits. Brought back great memories of her to see this. Thanks!
