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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Fanseefem Project:

The Fanseefem project is my effort to bring normal clothes to our adult female sims. Sick of high heels, dressy clothing dripping with jewelry, and a lack of nice, sensible, basic clothes for females , I've gone a bit crazy.

This is part seven of the multi-part series: swimwear! Specifically, two-piece suits. I had only a few custom swimsuits I'd ever bothered downloading (as argh, why do people insist on putting shoes and jewelry on them all the time?!) and I was sick of having to choose the same thing for all my sims. And, well, we all know what I do when I discover I need something... I go nuts!

Because of the scope and grandeur of this project, I do not have any plans at this time to do the same for teens. Please don't ask - I may if the mood strikes me, but I hate doing stuff over, and doing the same huge pile of stuff again is enough to drive me batty. Battier. Whatever.

What's Included:
  • 10 Solid Colour Bikini Briefs Swimsuits
  • 10 Patterned Bikini Briefs Swimsuits
  • 10 Solid Colour Boyshorts Bottomed Swimsuits
  • 10 Patterned Boyshorts Bottomed Swimsuits

  • Hand-painted base textures.
  • Patterned versions are all unique - no two are the same pattern.
  • No jewelry or shoes.
  • Base game compatible.
  • No mesh required (but one is recommended - see below!).
  • For young adults and adults.
  • Categorized as swimsuits (and -just- swimsuits!).

Mesh Recommended:

These recolours use afBodySwimsuit - the same mesh I used for my Fanseefem Undies set. I have tweaked this mesh slightly to remove the crotch crease, wedgie bottom, and boob crease details which have always bugged me.

To get the exact look as shown in the pictures, you will need to get the default replacement mesh. It is uploaded to my original Fanseefem Undies thread, and you can get it, and the rest of the details on that mesh by clicking here.

Thanks to:
  • Fanseelamb, for her clothing that inspired the Fanseefem Project
  • MTS2, the rest of the staff, and especially Delphy, for creating such a cool place where I could learn to make pretty things for pixel dolls.
  • Quaxi, and the rest of the SimPE team.

Hooray! You are amazing :D

Let me guess, you picked out yet another colorful box with a crank that I'm expected to turn and turn until OOP! big shock, a jack pops out and you laugh and the kids laugh and the dog laughs and I die a little inside. - Stewie (Family Guy)

The patterned ones are really great! I couldn't agree more with you about leaving off the jewelry and shoes! (Shoes on underwear and sleepwear are just as absurd)

Gorgeous, just absolutely gorgeous - but your creations always are! Are you thinking of doing tank-tops as well, for the fuller figure woman who's a little shy (i.e. me! )

It's so nice to have stuff designed to be worn by regular Sims, not for models on the catwalk.
