Why Do My Jeans Fall Down?

If you constantly find yourself wondering “why do I constantly have to pull my jeans up?”, we’re here for you! The most common culprits for falling jeans are the fit, fabric, and style. If you have the inclination to choose low-rise jeans that sit low on the hips, you may find yourself constantly pulling your denim jeans up. Consider trying high-waisted jeans like the ones in our denim collection that sit just below the belly button for optimal comfort.  


Finding the right size for your body shape is also key to finding the perfect pair that does scoot down your hips. If you don’t have the right waist size, you may find yourself with a fit issue. Pants that are too large result in an excess fabric that causes jeans to slip down. Similarly, buying women’s jeans from poor-quality shops results in pants that often lose their shape while wearing. This means more pulling on your belt loops to get them to sit right. While poor-quality blue jeans can cause this problem, stiff jeans like raw denim can also slip down from being so stiff.  


How to Know if Your Jeans Fit

Whether you’re buying skinny jeans, wide-leg jeans, straight-leg, or dress pants, they must fit well to avoid the waistband sliding down. When trying on trousers and jeans, they should be tight enough that they aren’t falling but loose enough that they are constricting.


A good test is to take a seat in your jeans and see if they still feel comfortable. While belts and suspenders can be very cute accessories, you shouldn’t need them to keep your pant legs up.  


The 'Ab'solution denim is the perfect opportunity to find the right fit. They look like chic regular jeans but feel as comfortable as your favorite pair of yoga pants. The inner mesh lining provides the same support as an elastic waistband and keeps everything in place.  


How to Know Your Jean Size

It’s no surprise to women who shop from different brands that numbered sizes are anything but universal from brand to brand.


The best way to find your jean size is to measure your waist, inseam, and hips. From there, you can compare them to the size chart of a specific brand to ensure you get the right fit.  


  • To measure your waist, place your measuring tape under your ribs. 
  • To measure your inseam, measure from your heel to your crotch.  
  • To measure your hips, place the measuring tape at the widest part of your butt.  



Knowing Your Jean Size In Different Styles

Whether you are getting high-rise jeans, black jeans, skinny jeans, or white jeans, you’ll want to verify your jean size to make sure you get the perfect fit that won’t slide down all day. For the most part, you should be fine to order the same size throughout different styles. With Democracy Clothing, you have a wide range of stylish and flattering jeans to choose from.


There may be some discrepancy between a wide leg and skinny jeans as far as fit through your leg but this will be specific to your body shape. Be sure to try different styles to see how they fit your body shape and adjust the size accordingly.  


Knowing Your Jean Size In Different Denim Brands 


The sizes between brands are often not the same. Between Levi Strauss, Wrangler, Lee jeans, and every other brand out there, it’s not a safe call to just rely on your number size. Make sure to check your measurements against the brand’s specific size chart to find the best fit for you.  


Accessories to Keep Your Jeans From Falling Down

One of the most fun parts of jeans is their versatility when it comes to accessorizing and styling. They are truly a blank canvas for styling so you can achieve your signature look. Whether you are going for casual or more professional, you can turn jeans into so many different dress codes. You can find so much information on styling and accessorizing in our blogs to inspire your next outfit.  


As far as accessories to keep your jeans from falling, you truly have so many options. While the goal is to find the perfect pair and fit so your jeans don’t fall, it doesn’t hurt to have a backup plan to keep you from having to constantly pull up your pants. Here are some great tips for accessories to keep your jeans from falling down: 


  • Belts are super versatile and come in many styles. Choose black leather for a classy, professional look, or find a fabric type to keep it casual.  
  • Try suspenders for a unique and creative look. Styling high-rise jeans with a t-shirt and stylish suspenders can create a fun look and keep your jeans from falling down.  
  • Use a scarf as a makeshift belt to add a bit of flair to your outfit. Simply place the scarf through the belt loops and tie it off the side for a fun and flirty look.  
  • While not quite an accessory, you can tuck your shirt or multiple layers into your waistband to keep them from sliding down. This will mostly work for pants that are a bit loose around the waist.  


To Sum It Up 


Jeans are cute, stylish, and versatile staples that everyone needs in their closet. While they are the perfect staple, having jeans that constantly fall can cause quite a headache. Make sure the jeans you purchase are the right size and style for your body and made with quality fabric that won’t slouch as you wear them. If all else fails, opt for some cute accessories like belts and suspenders to complete your look and keep your jeans where they belong.
