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.
Here are some more clothing options for your elder ladies!

I gave the clothing files that I made tonight descriptive names, to help you figure out which is which. However, I'm also including some clothes I made a few weeks ago, and I couldn't remember which was which, so couldn't label them accordingly (I just hope I'm uploading the right files!!) So, I guess there's always the option of deleting anything that you don't like in-game.

..I'll have to remember to use more descriptive file names next time I'm making clothes.

This will be it for another couple of weeks, but the next time I'm home, I'll no doubt be playing with BodyShop some more, so will have some more goodies to share.

If anyone's interested, I also added some more teen clothing options today:

Thankyou very much! I'm always looking for more nice elder clothing. Sometimes it's so hard to find.

These are great. Did you custom make the hair on your model or did you download it from a site?

I really never download custom elder clothing, because I rarely play them, but lately they've been making their way into my game. It's been sad seeing my formerly glammy, fashionable sims turn into frumpy old people. I grabbed these, maybe now my elderly women can have some panache.

I'm getting a corrupt zipfile when I try to download it, and when I save it to disk it's not even 1/10th of the size that MTS2 says it ought to be. *scratches head*

*puzzles* And 40 minutes later I try again and it works. Must have been a server hiccup.

These look great! I can't stand the frumpy Elder clothes either. I can't download these though. I only have dialup. Half way through the 45 minutes to download it, the connection broke. I just can't download these huge files.

Wow! Thank you so much!! It's brilliant to now have a wonderful selection for my older "glamourous granny" Sims!!

Could I ask if you are thinking about making any elder male clothes? These are so lovely, I'd be really interested to see what you would come up with!

Thanks again!

I've always thought there's just little bit of clothes for elder one. so I use the hack to be young(usually..) or let them dying fastly... 'cuz it's boring of thier fashion... now I'm trying to enjoy the elder life with my sims..!
thx for sharing~!

I've yet to make any male clothes, but sure, I could give it a try. I'm at university right now, and unfortunately, can't run BodyShop (or The Sims 2) on the computer I have here. The next time I'm home, though, I'll see what I can come up with.
