Please redownload! One of the recolors wasn't linked properly to the mesh, so I rebuilt the default from the ground up and now it should, hopefully, work perfectly. Sorry for that! If any other problem pops up please let me know!
I've also uploaded nondefaults, as requested by Llama_Face.

I'm actually okay with a good deal of the funky Maxis outfits in my game (the baby dress, anyone?), but this tracksuit from Apartment Life looks like a Star Trek uniform design that was so weird that it was scrapped from the actual show. And that's saying something. Can you imagine actually going out for a jog in this thing? Worst of all this outfit spawns on so many "social class" townies that it's started to show up in my nightmares (can't recommend Townie Apartment Residents enough.) I guess I'm just not "Tech" enough to understand this Sim fashion trend.

Anyway, as much as I dislike this outfit, I couldn't find a default replacement that was perfect for me, so I learned how to make my own. It's based on an outfit by Amaryll, and comes in four swatches. The black tank top is the original by Amaryll, and the other three are recolors by me!

This file replaces afbodyjoggingsuit from the Apartment Life expansion. It's available is for Young Adults and Adults only, and also available in Everyday and enabled for Townies. Mesh is included, and it has fat morphs.

The original tracksuit was enabled for Elders too, but I'm personally not a fan of my chubby old ladies suddenly becoming slim while working out. I can upload an Elder-enabled file if anyone really wants it, but I haven't the slightest clue how to mesh so they will keep the young woman body. I suggest looking at Cocomama's Sportswear for Grandma set, which has a very similar outfit for Elder ladies.

By the way, make sure you don't have any other defaults for afbodyjoggingsuit, as they will conflict. Apartment Life is required - if you don't have AL, you don't have to worry about this hideous suit!

I want to give a big, huge thanks to MoogleSims for their incredibly helpful tutorial! I've never attempted anything like this before, so I was super grateful to have a great guide! And, once again, thanks to Amaryll for the original outfit and mesh.
