CAS Poses (or create-a-sim poses) are a must for your sims 4 mods folder if you like to:

  • Share the sims you create or sims 4 gameplay with other simmers on Tumblr, Pinterest, Youtube, or Discord.
  • Make sims 4 cc and want to show it off in the best way possible
  • Have a gaming blog (like me!) and want to create cool edits of your sims
  • Or just overall enjoy taking STUNNING photos of your sims!

With CAS Poses, you’ll click on the associated trait, your sim will start to pose, and you’ll be able to take incredible screenshots.

But first, three things I HIGHLY recommend you have to get the absolute BEST pictures in Create-a-Sim:

  • Custom CAS Background (you can view my list of favorites HERE)
  • ReShade (you can view my list of favorite ReShade presets HERE)
  • Canva to Edit Screenshots (If you have the Pro membership you can cut out the background of your photos with the click of a button!!)

And if you don’t know how already, here’s a simple tutorial on How to use Sims 4 CAS Poses!

This post is all about the best sims 4 CAS poses so you can get incredible screenshots of your sims!

Best Sims 4 CAS Poses

You’ll notice that under each of these CAS poses, I’ve noted the trait animation that they replace.

For example, the first pose pack replaces the Goofball trait animation. This means that when you click on the Goofball trait in Create-a-Sim, your sim will start doing the poses from that pack.

Here’s why it’s important to remember which of your pose packs replace which trait animations: you can only have one pose pack per trait downloaded at a time.

Lucky for us, some pose creators will give you multiple trait options to choose from, so if one trait is already taken, you can still download the pose pack to work with another trait.

Hopefully, that all made sense but if not, feel free to leave me a comment with any questions. Now let’s get into the CAS poses for Sims! Also if you want to read more about some of the best Sims 4 Trait Mods, check out this article.

Something pretty unusual with this pack is that each of the 6 poses replaces a different trait, so keep that in mind.

The poses work perfectly on female sims, but can also be used on male sims. In addition, there are versions of these poses for use in-game and on the gallery.

I’m seriously OBSESSED with CAS poses! They truly are the key to getting great screenshots of sims and then making beautiful graphics (plus, using Canva to edit!)
