How To Keep Pants From Falling Down. 13 Killer Solutions

How To Keep Pants From Falling Down. 13 Killer Solutions

Here’s a fantastic question from a reader looking for a solution to keep pants from falling down!


You are watching: pant fall down

I have the same problem as a lot of middle-age guys:

– Growing Middle

– Shrinking Butt

– Pants keep falling down, don’t fit right, and won’t stay up where I want them to

– Shirt won’t stay tucked in

I’ve been looking at two approaches to these problems:

1) Compression undergarments, to shape the body a little bit and

2) Shirt locks, Strapless Suspenders, Hidden Tailor, etc. to keep the shirt tucked in and pants up.

I haven’t seen anything about these two being used in combination, though.

Any suggestions or recommendations?


Top Questions I’m Asked

Before we get to answering Dan’s question, here are the top 6 questions I receive about this topic.

How To Easily Keep Pants from Falling Down

Heya Daniel,

Good to hear from you buddy and thanks for your question!

You most certainly can wear a slimming/shapewear undershirt with something that helps keep your pants up.

Assuming you’re wearing a tucked in shirt, whatever product you use to keep your pants up will go on the outside of your shirt, and will not come in contact with your undergarments.

Even if you don’t tuck in your outer shirt, if something like Hidden Tailor came into contact with your compression under-clothing, I can’t see that causing any issue.

Keep in mind that Hidden Tailor is a product that should help keep your shirt tucked.

It’s also worth noting that compression clothing & shirt tucking solutions are really serving two different problems, neither of them are specifically designed to keep your pants up.

Products That Help Keep Pants Up

It goes without saying, if you’re really having a problem keeping your pants up, traditional suspenders (Amazon) would be something to consider.

But, I suspect you don’t want to wear suspenders, otherwise you probably would have mentioned it.

Still, if your pants keep sliding down, and you’re looking for some suspender alternatives, here are some that I think are worth mentioning.


NoSaggs is a belt with an integrated ridge in the back, worn on the outside of your tucked shirt or undershirt.

Once the ridge sits right underneath your belt, it will help your pants stay up. The belt will also help keep your shirt tucked.

Works with all fabric, pants, shorts, jeans, slacks and skirts.

PantsUp is a solution that is comprised of silicone-like cubes that attach toward the bottom of your undershirt or shirt, on either side, in proximity to your hipbone. Once attached, it creates a ridge that sits right below your belt line.

Belt Boss Invisible Belt Suspender/Shirt Stay

Belt Boss is a clip that attaches to your undershirt.

The backside of the clip goes on the inside of your undershirt. The front side of the clip fastens from the outside, with the undershirt in between.

The front of the Belt Boss has U-shaped hooks that are designed to be placed under the front of your belt.

Designed to keep the front of your shirt tucked, assists with keeping the sides of your shirt tucked, and looks like it would also help keep your pants from falling down.

Available in tan, beige and black. Airport-friendly versions available too.

Men’s Padded Underwear

If you’re still wondering on how to keep pants up, and looking for alternative ways, here’s a fun idea. Find some men’s underwear (briefs or boxer briefs) with pads in the backside to make your butt look more pronounced.

Here are some padded underwear options:

  1. RounderBum butt enhancing padded trunk (Amazon)
  2. Leo padded enhancer boxer brief (Amazon)

The extra padding in the butt area could also help keep your pants up (:

You may want to keep that idea in mind as an alternative to buying a specific product to keep your pants up, like I mentioned earlier.

Subs: Keep Baggy Oversized Pants Up

This list wouldn’t be complete without a solution to keep your baggy oversized pants up.

Subs waist suspenders

Subs are waist suspenders designed to keep your baggy pants up. The trend is referred to as sagging, and any one donning this urban fashion trend is wearing saggers (or baggy pants).

Attach the Subs belt to your waist, connect the clasps to the top of your saggers, and you’re ready to go.

Andrew Lewis, a Harlem entrepreneur & inventor of Subs, recommends wearing them with a belt, to ensure you maintain your own epic personal style.

What About An Undershirt Designed To Keep Pants From Falling Down?

This idea, courtesy of an inventor who conceptualized an undershirt with channel integrated toward the bottom of the undershirt.

Within the channel, a soft “rod” (think styrofoam tube) would be placed, thus creating a perimeter ridge that could sit just below your pants waistline, secured by a belt.
