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.

Look closely at that picture. Those sims have tan lines! Seasons and Sunlit Tides will be released soon, and what better way to prepare than to give your Sims a tan? This set consists of tans that match EA base-game swimsuits. There's a tan for the Onepiece, Plunge, and Strapless full body swimsuits. The boy shorts, briefs, bikini briefs, tie bikini, and gym-type shorts all have matching tan lines in this set. The upper body tans consist of the halter bikini, tie bikini, and the strapless tops all pictured above, plus the normal bra. As an extra bonus, there's a Playboy Bunny stencil that can be placed in 8 different locations on the body. The bunny stencils are broken into 2 sets -- one for the upper body and one for the lower. The tans are done as accessories, can be worn by teens thru elders, and will stay on in the shower. The presets look very good on every skin tested, even the fantasy ones. They also look very natural with Late Night tattoos. They weren't tested with tattoos done as accessories however. They're very easy to adjust using the darkness slider in CAS and can actually be set a few shades darker than the skin tone. Play with them a little to get a feel for how light or dark you can make them. The preset is about as light as they'll go however. At the bottom of the post you'll find pics of all the in-game thumbs, except the tops. They were just too blurry to post. They look fine in-game however.

Be aware that this sim come with a lot of CC. Don't come looking to burn my house down if something in there messes with your game. I removed all the CC with the Sims3Pack extractor available Here. http://www.modthesims.info/d/364038. It was all installed as separate package files with no issues.

Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to put CAS creation tutorials up. I've done a lot of them, but can't say with any certainty which ones aided with this project! I've been playing with this idea on and off for over a year now.

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.
