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.

In honor of MTS's fitness theme, I made a set of six dance/yoga outfits for your sims. This is really an OVERHAUL of my Madame Dal's House of Dance set. A lot of people wanted long-legged and full body suits so I made them. And, I got a lot of feedback saying that they preferred rounder necks to the leotards, so I implemented those as well. In my opinion, these are much better than my previous set!

There are six different suits for your ladies, all six are combined in one package for each age group. There is a basic thin strap leotard, a short sleeve leotard and a long sleeve leotard. The last three suits are complementing unitards. All suits have one recolorable channel.

They're available for females teen through elder and are found in athletic and swimwear.

Bonus Items!

In addition to the full-body outfits, there are accessory versions of the suits, as well. The accessory versions can be used if you choose to layer the suits under clothing for that "headed to dance class" look. They are found in every outfit category (including career) and are marked as rings (left).

Lastly, when staging the photo I had a lot of difficulty finding a good pair of tights to go under the suits. So, I ended up making my own.

The tights are slightly opaque to give off the thick tights look. They pull up all the way to the sim's navel, so they cover up the body well. The tights are not bucket filled, they have a subtly detailed texture (wrinkles at the ankle and knees). They can be found for all categories, and are marked as regular socks.

Both accessories are available for ages teen through elder. And no outfit/accessory is available for random.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.
