1. Jawsome Ariel Swimsuit by DragonQueen


 As always, we’ll start in Create A Sim where your Sims can find style for their trip to the beach. Or in this case, your Sims can make a fashion statement with morbid taste! The Jawsome Ariel Swimsuit has everyone’s favorite aquatic Disney princess floating unknowingly above a terrifying image of the Jaws shark. DragonQueen originally made this swimsuit for adult female Sims just in time for Shark Week, but it’s sure to be a wonderful conversation starter wherever your Sim wears it! It has its own custom thumbnail in the catalog but doesn’t come in any other swatches.

2. Lifeguard Male Shorts by pinkzombiecupcakes



Every male Sim can feel stylish and save lives with the blow of a whistle in these crimson swim trunks.

This custom content is for male Teens and older, and it has a custom swatch underneath the base game swim knee length swim trunks in the base game. There is only one version of it, and pinkzombiecupcakes also has a matching t-shirt available as well! Don’t worry, it’s not the ocean that will take your Sim’s breath away.

8. Beach Yoga Towel by akaissims

Speaking of lounging next to the pool, a beach wouldn’t be complete without laying out a towel and taking in a little bit of sun! Along with The Sims 4: Spa Day came the Yoga Mats where your Sim can find their center while laying in a Corpse Pose and letting go of all their stress. Akaissims took advantage of this wonderful pose and object, recoloring them to colorful beach towels! Now your Sim can perform Yoga, soak in the sun and gain Wellness Skill at the same time.
