Are you not satisfied with the clothing selection in the Sims 4? Do you want to add your own clothes? It’s easier than you think to make your own clothing mods. You need a copy of The Sims 4, The Sims 4 Studio, and an image editor such as Photoshop or GIMP. We will teach you how to Using Sims 4 Mods for Clothes.
I’ve already covered gameplay mods, as well as custom content for your Sim’s hair, eyes, and face. This article is about everything below the neck. If you need a quick refresher on Simmer modding slang: “BGC” means “Base Game Compatible,” meaning you don’t need any expansions to use that mod, and “mesh required” means that this is probably custom content made using someone else’s 3D model, which you’ll have to download. Now you’re ready to ruin your own life by downloading a couple of dozen gigs of Sims 4 custom content as I have. None of these mods conflict with each other, so download away!
Both men and women in The Sims 4 don’t have a lot of basic tops. I’m glad for the diversity of fashion—especially in women’s tops—but I also know that I own at least 30 t-shirts and I feel that should be reflected in-game. Men’s fashion is lacking in general (why are all the shirts so baggy?), so hopefully these tips will help your male Sims look like respected members of society.
Sims 4 Lag Fix Mods
This one, this mod, and this one are another among the incredibly useful, must-have mods within the greater umbrella of Sims 4 mods. Both of them will straight up fix some lag issues that all players face, even those with awesome PCs. These kinds of mods are a downright necessity if your PC is less than tip-top, too. It fixes the lag that has sims sometimes just standing around for hours, fixes autonomy lags, fixes a whole lot. When you’re cutting off full seconds to those weird pauses, then you’re bound to see some awesome results in the long run and have more playtime.
Make Your Sims Look Realistic
This amazing Sims mod comes from KawaiiStacie and it’s called Slice of Life. What this mod does is add realism to your game, giving all of the character models physical changes depending on their mood and buffs. Like if your Sim is feeling embarrassed by talking to someone they find attractive, their cheeks will actually start blushing. There are a few other appearance changes and new emotions that come with the Slice of Life mod, so if you’re looking for some realism from your Sims, give this one a try.
More Free Time
This Explore Mod for Sims 4 also comes from KawaiiStacie and what it does is allows your Sim to leave the lot through rabbit hole places and return with buffs, motive and skill increases, and relationship increases. With this mod, you can even go shopping, get your nails done, and live out your best life. You get to have more free time on a day to day basis, places won’t close to inclement weather, and you’ll also be able to check the opening/closing times for locations via the explore menu.

How to Update Mods and CC in The Sims 4
Mods and CC are usually disabled after The Sims 4 updates. This is because there’s a risk that a mod isn’t compatible with the latest version of the game. Follow the instructions above to enable them again. Unlike the game itself, mods don’t automatically update. When a mod breaks then you will need to check where you got it from to see if there’s a new version. If there is, download it, and replace the original files. If there isn’t, remove the files until there’s an update.
