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 shorts are available for boys in everyday, swimwear, sleepwear and athletics and have 2 channels, one for the cords and one for the shorts.
For this shorts I change the shorts mesh for children and use the teen shorts texture.
This was a request from Courtneyshea.
I hope you enjoy!

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.

I always hated how not only do my little boys only have one mesh to choose from for swim trunks not only that but the mesh they have is so short and not swim trunks like at all. The maxis shorts work well for boxer shorts but not at all for swim trunks.

Thank you for such a great creation. I will be using this a lot.

I'm having a problem where on some animations, my little boys end up with... it looks like the bottom half of a teen or adult body when they do certain actions (most recently, working out in front of the tv) in these shorts. It's quite bizarre... has this happened to anyone else?

Thank you for this!
I can't believe that the game designers hadn't even considered this.
