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.

This mod is no longer necessary as of patch 1.17/2.12/3.8/4.5/5.2 or if you have Late Night installed because EA has fixed the T-shirt meshes (among others). My version does appear tighter and somewhat bustier than the EA fixed version, for what it's worth.

If you use any of the available Breast Slider mods, you've probably noticed the T-Shirt looks very strange on your bustier sims. This is because there are some odd bone assignments around the bottom of the breasts that cause the shirt to deform in a strange way if the breasts are enlarged at all. These are default replacement meshes to fix this problem.



However, even after fixing that problem, there was an issue with any pattern or graphic on the shirt distorting in an unnatural way, so I've completely re-boned the shirt to eliminate this pincushion distortion and provide a more realistic and uniform stretching of the fabric across the breasts. The image below is an example of very large breasts (beyond the normal range of the breast sliders) and the pattern across the breasts is still fairly uniform with no pincushion distortion.



The most important reason for more uniform and realistic stretching is so that any graphic across the shirt remains proportionate and not distorted.


(Not all of the graphics shown above will be available unless you have the World Adventures EP).

The meshes in this package will replace all base game and World Adventures T-Shirt meshes for Teen, Young Adult, Adult, and Elder. They will also replace the free Sims 3 Store T-shirt meshes (Fanta and Sponge) if you have those, but this does NOT contain the Sims 3 Store items themselves.

Known Issues
The shirt will look exactly the same in-game as in CAS if you have Sim Detail set to "Very High". Anything lower than that, and you will see some distortion of patterns/graphics in game and also some chunkiness of the breasts if they are much larger than default. This is unfortunately a side-effect of how the game renders lower detail, and you will see this effect in many default meshes as well.

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.

Thank you soo much!! so useful. Before I download though, I'd like to ask if this replaces the default mesh of male T-shirts, too? Because I have a slimmer mesh for men's T-shirts that I can't live without.

Perfect! I was sad to see the t-shirt option go when I wanted a busty Sim, this is great!

Awesome! Really wanted something like this....
Little question, tho.

What did you use to over/under slide the breasts? I liked that pic. Hehe.

Thank you so much for this fix. My sister tends to create bustier sims, and this was her chief complaint. Now she's happy, and I'm happy too.

I used Awesomemod, you'll have to specifically enable extended slider ranges since it's not configured that way by default.

Great work really. But I have one question. Does this have any effect on any other shirts besides the tee shirt?

hello I'm really apprehensive about adding mods. I just wanted to know if there is anything extremely different that you have to do about adding this mod. Is it just like downloading clothing? Because a while back I did a mod like this and next thing I know my sims3 game only loads the title screen and crashes. I'm so scared of that happening again. Sorry for such an extended message, but I'd like to know before I do ne thing wrong.
