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.
Here we are with more maternity wear--this one was a happy accident. I really liked the pretty "swimsuit cover-up" that came with Outdoor Life Stuff, and the next time I wanted another maternity dress for my game I thought it would make a perfect addition. Then I thought it might look nice as a maxi dress. Then I considered re-categorizing it--because EA only enabled it for "everyday" but not "swimwear." Derp! Then I thought, Wonder if it'd work without the halter bra? Then I thought, Wonder how it'd look with a modesty panel?

... so! After a good amount of poking and shifting, I think I succeeded in making the dress significantly more useful for your pregnant ladies. Three variations are available--the original with halter bra, the more daring version with no bra, and the more formal version with lace panel. All variations come with or without the original item's gold stencils, for a total of six presets. All LODs (including maternity) are included. Available as everyday, formal, sleepwear, swimwear, and maternity. Not valid for random.

Do note: the main body of the dress has had the tiling changed to 8x8 from the original 4x4, so that will change the look of your patterns.

As always, I hope you and your sims enjoy it!

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.
