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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This creation is hosted here with permission from the amazing Sussi, who is moving on from simming to adopt a baby. All thanks and congratulations to Sussi!

Name: Bodyshape - Ballerina
Gender: Female
Ages: Adult/Young Adult
Poly Count: 2802 polygons, 2062 vertices (moderate, normal for an alpha mesh)
Recolour: Champagne Ballerina Outfit

This Ballerina will walk on her tiptoes all the time! This means that when the game have animations when the sim already are on their toes, the feet will look a bit deformed, for example when the sim performs certain aspects of Yoga. But this Yoga part is the only time I have seen the feet look strange, otherwise, the feet look fine.

The skirt will "sway" a lot when she walks and as it is supposed to also be a bit stiff, the front will stand up when the ballerina sits down.

This is very good but but her ribbons are not correctly tied. Well, I still use the dress anyway because it looks so gorgeous but just in case you want to improve it a little, here is how you are supposed to tie your shoes

You kinda tie them around your ankles for better support. And you might also see that good ballerina feet form an "arch". The higher your arch, the prettier. But of course this is stuff only a ballerina would notice.
Your mesh is by far the best "en pointe" mesh I've found!

Hey just in case you do ever come back, I agree with Loretta Young Skills. Unlike her though I probly will never use this because of;
- the off arch
- the ribbons
- the tutu looks really funky and stiff (even though tutus are supposed to stick out, they are slanted and do kinda flop I guess you could say)
- the top area looks like she is wearing a corset bra making her waste entirely too skinny (you aren't even suppose to were a regular bra in ballet), this also makes her breast look weird too.
- I don't care for the arm thingies
I personally like realilistic sims and their objects. Idk about the rest of you. But you don't mind me. If you all like it go ahead and download it. Oh, and if everyone is thinking; "What does she know?" "She doesn't what she's talking about" or what ever you may not think is reliable, just to let you know I'm a ballet dancer and have been for quite a long time.
Hope you listen. A toute te lere!

I was wondering if anyone could tell me before I download this - and it may be a stupid question but I was wondering if this was a clothing mesh for individual sims or if all my female sims would be affected by the mesh. I have downloaded a body mesh before and well... All my female sims had huge boobs when I only wanted one particular sim to. :<

Hope this isn't inappropriate by any means. Thanks!
