Hello. Maybe I don't know the correct terms, but I was unable to locate a mod for this in the listing. There are some CC accessories I downloaded that can be worn in, for example, everyday and formal mode, but not in sleepwear or swimwear. How can these be modified so that my Sim can keep wearing her CC jewelry while swimming or showering, for example? Thank you.

If you're familiar with SimPE:

(This has to be done on every recolor you want to change)
- open the recolor file you want to change
- click on "Mesh Overlay XML (XMOL)" in the resource tree. Now only the XMOL resources are going to show in the Resource List.
- click on the first resource name in the Resource List (there is one for each age and gender the accessory works for - af, am tf, tm and so on)
- look in the CPF editor underneath.
- Click on "category (dtUInteger) = [0x0...]"
- in the Value window, change the number to 0x0000127F (I think 0x0000137F works too - or that might be for hairs...)
- click "commit" at the bottom
- do this for ALL the XMOL resources
- save the file

Now the accessories are going to work for all clothing categories, including naked.

The bin number is the same as clothing categories, so if you want some but not all categories, the easiest way to figure out the bin number is to make a clothing recolor in SimPE with the categories you want for the accessory (say, everyday+outerwear+gym+PJs). Copy the number in the bin category, and use it for the accessories.
You can delete the outfit recolor later. It appears in the SavedSims folder.
