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.
Revised (20SEP2015): I have completely revamped the speedos and also added short shorts version
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've done some major recoloring on the male speedos and short shorts, here you'll find 37+ combined color options in the following styles:
-solid color with black stripes
-solid color with white stripes
-black with colored stripes
-white with colored stripes
-solid black
-solid white

They are available in 2 options:
-standard (no specular map....meaning no shine)
-shiny (they have a specular map)

On the shorts I simply removed the pull string so they look better as workout shorts.

I also did a nice mesh edit for both the speedo and shorts so they actually have a (proportionate) bulge.

The swimwear can be found under the bottoms section and will appear in both the Activewear and Swimwear categories.

To install them simply unzip them into your 'Mods' directory and you're good to go.

I've just started learning to mod so I've got recolors down. I'll have to figure out meshes if I make a child version of this so once I do learn how I could look into it. This project started as me not liking the swimsuits on my personal Sim and I figured I'd share.

I do currently have plans to add more colors, probably this week.

I'm glad everyone is liking them. Once I find the right programs for it I'll probably try to edit the mesh for these as well.

A bulge maybe?

That can be done in Milkshape or any 3D modeler. Didn't have time to search how to extract the model and bring it back in a package file but I know it can be done. Lumialover did it for the briefs.

that's the change I'm looking to make but Sims 4 Studio only shows hair and accessories when I chose to make a mesh so I'll have to keep looking on how to extract them.

Didn't realize the process of merging the files was quite simple. Looked it up and merged them down to one file rather than 10, the new file is up for download.

I have several edits to the speedos so I'll be completely stripping this mod and re-uploading them.
