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.
Summer is here!

As with elders, EA has horrible taste in children's fashion. As limited as their everyday clothing is, children's swimwear is even more limited. Child females have it rough, because all they have to chose from is one swimsuit or an ill fitting tank with gym shorts. When I was little, the only time I wore a tank top and shorts to swim was if I forgot my swimsuit at home. So, in honor of the summer and in anticipation of new Generations EP, I present 8 new mix and match pieces for your little girls.



The set includes 3 tops (tankini, drawstring halter top, bikini halter top) and 4 bottoms (plain and ruched briefs, string bikini bottom, ringed bikini bottom). Plus, one full body swimsuit. Each comes with 3 presets (I rather enjoyed making the presets). All of the pieces are enabled for swimwear, but some or enabled for various other appropriate categories. Click the spoiler for more information.





This upload was one of those projects that started off as one teeny creation, then evolved into a whole set. I hope y'all enjoy!

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.

Thanks for these!

I would suggest that you upload a file with all 8 packages in it, since most of us are going to download the whole set anyway. This would just make it easier instead of downloading all 8 files. And if your doing it to get your download count up, well, that's pretty cheap...

Didn't mean to come off that way, but I wasn't sure why else you would do 8 different downloads. Anyway, thanks for adding that for people.

Ah, well tone doesn't transfer well over the net.

Yeah, I understand. That was actually an edit to my original post. Now that I read it over again, it did seem a bit snippy. Sorry.

Keep up the good mods!

I agree---some of these are a bit too "mature" for my tastes. daluved1, I love your stuff, and I want to download just the pieces I like, but I'm having trouble identifying what is what. Can you (or another helpful simmer) explain which piece in your screenshots is which part in your downloads? I'd greatly appreciate it!

From what I can tell, the red-headed little girl is wearing tankini top, the darker-skinned, dark-haired one is wearing drawstring halter bikini top, and the lighter-skinned, dark-haired one is wearing halter bikini top.

In all the bottoms screenshots, it's ruched swim briefs, string bikini bottom, plain swim briefs, then ringed bikini bottom.
