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.
UPDATE 11th Feb: Added another file, it includes Teen to Elder. So you can stick with the adults one or get this one, it's up to you.

Heya! After being inspired by Kiara24's creations, I decided to try and figure out how to make clothes shiny so I've started on a bikini set made for Young Adult, Adult and Elder.

As you can see I also edited the style a little so it's more of a string bikini and it's a bit smaller than the original. I think the butt-cracks aren't as obvious on other skins (I'm using Peggy's and they have a pretty high crack). I've included custom cas thumbnails for all the pieces of clothing for ease of use, you can see them all below.

I hope you like them!

(The two package files for the tops and bottoms are both in the rar file)

Additional Credits:
Ariadne, wearing Gold, has hair & Skins by Peggy, Eyeliner by Subaxi, Lipstick by Lemon, SoftGLO by KittyKlan, Glamour Brows by daluved1.

Sammi, wearing Silver, has hair by Raonjena, Eyebrows by Subaxi, Lashed by aarin, Lipstick by Arisuka, Skins by Peggy.

Jasmin, wearing Pink Mottled Leather, has hair by XM Sims, Skins by Peggy, Eyebrows by Nandonalt, Sparkling Eyes by Shady, Lipstick by Channy & Vivin, SoftGLO by KittyKlan.

Paris, wearing Blue Crosshatch, has hair & skins by Peggy, Eyebrows by Subaxi, SoftGLO by KittyKlan, Lipstick by Lemon.

All are wearing my eyeshadows.

Thanks to all the custom artists seen in my screenshots. <3

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.

Peggy and her way-high buttcracks... hee. This is great, and makes up for the unfathomable sheer lack of bathing suit options in the game.

Thank you for this! I downloaded Kiara's shiny swimsuit and it looks great in-game. These will look wonderful on my more daring Sims gals. Thanks again for all the hard work.

Oh I love these. Very pretty. I have a Golddigger (one word?) sim that will be wearing this. I find myself downloading almost everything you put out these days. I love the extras on your site too. Your Frankenskin is great.

I am using the peggy skin also, I wish someone would lower the butt on that thing. There are so many clothes that have unnecessary crack showing, especially undies. Sigh. Maybe I should stop being lazy and do it myself.

Thanks for the kind words Crystalline Flame
I'd love to lower the butt on her skin if I knew how. Maybe I should email her and ask her if she can make another lower butt crack and less defined muscle skin. lol

Hey LadyFrontBum, can you email me or message me a link to the skin? I found a good male skin but no good female skins that look real. I can't find it on the peggyzone website anywhere. Thanks dude

Skins should be here: http://peggyzone.com/Sims3Object.html?type=05_00_00 (i'd double check the link but that would require opening firefox and I am too lazy)

I'll pm you demon.

Hi, thanks for this nice set. However i have to say it does not mesh well with other pieces on the teen at least. There is a seam problem with both if they are used as a single (for example, only the top with a default bottom and vice versa). I have not tested it for adult yet, i just noticed this when a neighbour visited my playing sim and then checked in CAS on that sim.

The adult works fine by the way.
