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.
At long last, the first part of the new Hi-Res Female BodyShape Variety Set is complete.

NOTE: Due to their adult nature, the Skintones and Nude meshes have been posted separately in the Adult section, here: Nudes & Skintones
Tops sizes can be found here: Nude Tops Sizes

This collection is an updated version of the original Female BodyShape Variety Collection posted here: Original BodyShape Set . It is intended to allow variety in the sizes of the women in The Sims 2, rather than just the normal Skinny/Fat sizes in the game. By choosing a custom skintone and clothing, you can make your Sim a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

This set includes a wide range of clothing for Adults and Teens, in all categories, for the following Hip sizes:
Adult: 32, 36, 38, 40
Teen: Sm, Lg, XL

In this set, all full-body outfits have the default Maxis 34B top size.

This set includes the entire initial outfit list for the adults, which will later include the various top sizes as well. The Teen sizes included here is a Starter Set, a small selection of clothing to get folks started. I will expand on this collection at a later time.

This release includes all of the Bottom Sizes listed for the following Maxis outfits from the base game:

Each mesh has only one outfit texture, however converting your favorites to use the new meshes is quite easy. I posted a tutorial a while back for converting clothes and skintones to custom meshes: Clothing Conversion Tutorial

Also included in in "BodyShapes_Bottoms_Collections" are 4 Collection files, which are pre-filled with the appropriate clothing. These should go in your Collections folder in your MyDocs\EA Games\The Sims 2 folder. All other files should be extracted to Downloads like any other custom mesh/clothing.

I have also included the BottomTest family, seen previously in the Preview post here. This includes one Sim for each size, adult and teen. Please note I have all 3 expansions installed, so these will probably be required to install the family. All other files are totally non-expansion-dependent and will work on all versions.

*IMPORTANT* These meshes WILL conflict with the previous BodyShape meshes for these sizes, due to a new naming system for the files. The "BottomSetMeshCleanup.rar" file contains a batch script that will delete any of my old meshes found in the directory it is run from. Simply extract this file to the folder you put your meshes in, and run it, and it will delete any meshes I have replaced in the new set. Please note this also includes the nude meshes, which have been uploaded in a separate post. The script will ask for confirmation before deleting anything. If you are not comfortable running a script, you MUST delete the following files for the new set to work properly:

NOTE: Regarding custom outfits based on previous meshes, all outfits will automatically use the updated replacement meshes, as I have only changed the filenames but not the internal references, so creators do NOT have to re-do any outfits they have created for these sizes, they will update automatically.

Feel free to modify these meshes and outfits in any way you please, just give me credit for the meshes if you post somewhere else, and don't post anything to a pay site! I insist my creations remain free for everyone to share and enjoy.

Thanks to everyone for the feedback and support, more to come soon!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Ummm... it's custom clothing meshes and clothing, allowing a variety of Hip sizes, 32" thru 40"... it's an updated version of the Female BodyShape Variety Set posted here last year. Hehe I guess I got used to everyone knowing about this set, I'll post more complete info above.

More, bigger better... many more outfits, the new 40" hip size, the Teens now have 3 sizes instead of one. Also custom tailored skintones posted in the adult section, along with hi-res nude meshes. I have re-worked everything from the ground up, and I think the results are much better than the first series. This set is just the beginning, however, and only includes the Bottom sizes. The Top sizes will be released individually as I complete them, for now the original Tops will still work fine with these new Bottoms.

It's a family I created for my own testing, that has 7 sims on an empty lot. They're pre-built with the skintones, clothing etc for all the available sizes and colors, adult and teen. Totally optional of course, mostly I uploaded it for people to check out without building their own new families, if they'd like. It's the ones shown in the actual in-game screenshots, rather than the CAS ones... nothing fancy, as you can see.

Been a long ride, huh Simboy... still lots more to do, but at least the top sizes will be in smaller chunks.

Oh by the way, keep in mind these new meshes will update existing outfits, so if you've got your sims dressed in the old BodyShape bottom sizes, many of them will automatically start using the new meshes once they're installed. Only full-body outfits with the 34B Default size though, for now... the rest will update as I finish the Top sizes to match.

Sandman-- look forward to seeing what you guys come up with for these. I think you'll like the updated top sizes when they come around too, but one step at a time... :D

Hehe thanks everyone, I'm glad you like it so far. :D

I wanted to let everyone know I'm aware of the strange angles on some of the 40" outfits, it's mostly a limitation of the original mesh being stretched so far, but I may go back and see if I can touch them up later on. For now I want to get started on the tops though.

Hi, I have some questions:
- will these bodytypes work with the maxis-skintone or any replacement-skin?
-what about the next simgeneration, will the doughters have the same bodytype as their mothers, when they grow up?

These files in this set are only clothing, and will work on any sim you put them on. However, they will lose their shape in the shower etc if they do not have one of my skintones assigned, which are available in a separate post in the Adult section. If you use a BodyShape skintone, the shape can be inherited by following generations just like any other custom genetic... basically 50-50 chance depending on the father's genetics.
