Why so high?

Why do some older women wear their pants tucked under their breasts, instead of at waist level? :)

  • I guess they feel they are supporting their tummies in a way. Or that is where their waist were at one time and now that they have a belly they pull them over it.

  • Pants used to be cut with longer rises, and the old lady brands must still be. Also, since as you get older, you lose your hips, pants may actually stay up better with a higher waist.

  • Your natural waste is directly under your bottom rib, not where we wear our pants today... Most older women grew up in a world where pants were made to fit at your waste or above, because it was "modest" in those days. So today they continue to wear them there because that's what they are comfortable with.
