Nagging about Sagging: Exposing What Girls Really Think

You are just minding your own business, doing your own thing, and then you start to look around. Everywhere you look, in every direction, you can see someone’s underwear. Are you in a strip club? No. Are you in the underwear section of a department store, surrounded by packages of boxer briefs in every imaginable color? No. You’re at Montclair High School! Sagging. This obviously isn’t a new topic, especially at the high school, where at any time of the day you can look around and see someone’s boxers. Boys claim this fashion fad is comfortable, and that wearing their pants where they are supposed to be, on their waists, is a horrible thing of the past. Girls’ opinions are usually left out of this conversation, but we should be included because we have no choice but to look on as boys flash their underwear around school. Many girls experience that awkward moment when they are helplessly trapped behind an offender in a crowded stairwell and are left staring at someone’s boxers. If you sag, please consider the following: Is this really necessary? Do you really think it’s that cool to have to hold your pants up when you walk dangerously fast?  Have you ever thought that maybe, you might make just the wrong move and end up with your pants around your ankles in front of a whole group of people? Yeah, you might laugh it off, but you would always be remembered as the kid who’s pants fell down in front of everybody.

If the previous questions didn’t concern you at all, you might want to consider this: Via Facebook message, we asked the girls of MHS to tell us what they thought about sagging. Here are some of the replies:

“No, it’s unattractive. I never asked to see your underwear, therefore do not show it to me.” – A.N.

“Personally, I don’t find it attractive at all. I actually think it’s pretty degrading for boys to wear their pants like that and it’s really disturbing and bothersome to walk up the stairs and have some boy’s underwear right in your face. It’s not a pretty sight.” – A.R.

“I feel like it depends on who’s doing it and how much they sag.” – C.B.

“I think it looks good if it’s not too much. Like a ‘lil bit of sag is attractive, but no sag at all is ok and too much sag is dirty.” – Z.F.

“I think that guys do it because they think it looks cool and think if they wear their pants high that they’ll look weird. If the shirt is covering the sagging, personally I don’t have a problem. However if a guys butt is hanging out, I don’t want to see that; that’s too extreme.” – I.H.

“I don’t understand how any guy can think that walking (maybe waddling) like a duck is attractive in any way.” – V.B.

“When I’m around my guy friends I always tell them to pull their pants up. I don’t think it’s attractive, but I also don’t like their pants up sooo high. I mean, I don’t mind if they sag a little, but not to the extremes. They can sag a tiny bit but if they go any lower, I will tell them to pull them up.” – A.C.

“It’s gross.” – J.D.

Well, there you have it – although this may not represent the views of all girls at MHS, it gives you an idea of what some are thinking. So let’s reevaluate here –  do the pros of sagging really out-weigh the cons?

Pros: 1) Sagging is supposedly comfortable.

2) You have “swag”.

3) Wait…there is no other pro…

Cons: 1) Lots of girls think you are disrespectful, gross and “waddle like a duck”.

2) You are at extreme risk of watching your pants fall down to your ankles in front of the  hallway crowds.

3) You might get a little cold down there in the winter.

4) You can’t run comfortably.

5) You have to worry about what your boxers look like with the rest of your clothes (don’t pretend you don’t notice…)

So guys, next time you go to put on your pants make sure a belt is included in the picture too. And better yet, before you leave the house to go to school and display your colorful plaid underwear choice to the whole world, turn around and take a good look in the mirror. How ridiculous do you look right now?

What do you think about sagging? Does it bother you or could you care less? Tell us in the comment section below!

  1. I work in a school. And I have a son. So this is a constant battle. No matter that the kids don’t know the origin of this fashion (prison life) but it is done as a badge of ‘coolness’. Its not done to please girls. Its a statement to other guys. Its dumb but so were platform shoes, penny loafers, stove pipes, penny loafers etc.

  7. anyone is allowed to sag, we have the freedom of expression. One is allowed to cross-dress in school, also protected by the freedom of expression. No one makes an article about that scenario, because it is offensive. Girls say that sagging pants is disrespectful, well i find you trying to limit my freedom of expression just as disrespectful. When one sags their pants boxers are sometimes showing, but skin is never shown. What is the difference between wearing shorts, or sagging, they both have a layer of fabric over the lower half of your body. Boxers are never tighter than spandex and that is considered appropriate attire for females. No matter how many girls opinions you ask for, I still don’t care. I exhaust the right to wear my clothes, how I feel they are comfortable. No one rights an article about how ugly UGG boots are because no one cares. Unless the school has a uniform dress code, anyone should have the right to sag their pants

    • Boxers are considered an undergarmet, which should not be shown especially when it is exposing your rear-end. There are certain standards that must be maintained in school and elsewhere to respect others who are forced to look at your boxers. This is not a violation of your rights. Cross-dressing does not by definition expose indecencies, but sagging does. Get off your high constitutional horse and pull up your pants!

    • No, you can’t use your freedom of expression for everything. It’s too easy to be “blablabla, I don’t listen because of my freedom of expression!”, you should learn to listen and have discussion. No one forbids you anything here. This is just an opinion that someone shared with other people. Aka freedom of expression. Oops. Plus, sagging pants are as ugly as uggs.
      As Lauren said, seeing your underwear is a violation of other people’s “right” (I put it in quotation marks, sorry I’m not sure about the right word to use). Didn’t you learn that my freedom stops where someone else’s freedom begins? What if girls were coming in bra and panties!?

    • If you spent more time learning in school and not trying to keep your pants up, your grammar and spelling would be much better than it is now. “No one rights an article about how ugly….”? Are you kidding me? It should say “No one WRITES an article about how ugly…”

      You are right about everyone having the right to wear their pants any way they want unless a specific school, job, or other venue bans it. HOWEVER, you only have ONE opportunity to make a first impression. The clothes you wear, and the way you wear them tells the whole world who you are, what kind of person you are, and what you’re all about. I would rather make a good impression when I’m in public than give the impression that I’m lazy, disrespectful, like looking like a thug or a bad boy, and more than likely than not live in section 8 housing, dropped out of school, failed out of school, have a criminal record, was born poor and will most likely remain poor, or have no desire to seek a career with respect, have no desire to earn a comfortable salary, and have no desire to meet a quality partner.

      Whether you are any of those things or not, you wear your pants in a manner that makes it appear you are. That is your right, absolutely. I don’t like painting groups of people with broad brushes, but black or white, Asian or Latino, the people MOST LIKELY to wear their pants this way are usually a baby daddy, unmarried, poor, ex-cons, drug dealers, gang members, unemployed, disrespectful, womanizing, clods with little or poor education.

      If anyone opens his big mouth about your pants, remind him that you have the right to wear them that way regardless of what your style of clothing is telling him about you. Then you can make fun of his nice clothing.

  8. sagging pants are uncool

    Posted by adityarathore | November 23, 2011, 5:18 am
  9. People are still doing this? This has been going on since I was in highschool. Sagging basically makes a guy’s legs useless. How is that cool or sexy? Still think this is as weird as I thought it was ten years ago. It’s my understanding that this fad was started in prison. People might want to reconsider taking their fads from prison.

  10. Sag is not cool. Fight the sag!

    Posted by Sentimental Asylum | November 25, 2011, 9:34 am
  11. i also hate it when i see guys sagging, personally i do not think its attractive at all, and lately guys are just taking it to another level, like the other day i saw a guy sagging his pants so low and the worst thing is he was not wearing boxers briefs, he was wearing underwear, like the tight cotton ones and it was all tight on his butt and disgusting because his butt has just hanging out. I truly do not know why guys do this but it seems its something that will never end. great post. Please check out my blog..http://chicwithwords.wordpress.com/

  12. At least you’re taking an open look at this…nice post

    Posted by T Scott | November 25, 2011, 6:10 pm
  13. My view on it is that people choose to look how they look, it’s not bothering anybody, well I take that back, maybe some of the time it can be invasive and perhaps a little over the top. However, I think that people can look how they want but in the end, who’s going to get hired, who’s going to be appreciated the most by the girl friends parents? Not the kids who sag and have the lousy attitude. I agree, I don’t like it, but it’s a part of life, how people dress varies in style but the fact of the matter is, it’s up to the person.

  14. They just look like losers. Period. If they don’t want to be taken seriously, their clothing and appearance has earned them precisely that.

    Posted by Hoo Sze Ling | November 27, 2011, 3:56 am
  15. I know! So agree with you. Maybe we’ll just keep talking about it and they’ll finally get the message.

    Posted by Red Toenails | November 27, 2011, 9:43 am
  16. Fashionable? How many of the best looking people in the world do you see using sagging pants?
    Comfortable? Nothing more annoying than having to worry about your pants falling.
    They look good? No, it looks like your diaper needs to be changed.

    But that is a personal opinion and everyone is free to dress as they please. If this is a school issue, easy fix, uniforms! Everyone looks the same, promotes self-respect, promotes discipline.

  17. Am I honestly the only girl that thinks sagging is cute?

  19. Practically many people are included in some kind of individual insurance, whether in the private-sector or as a donee of authorities rewards. Such protection is got in various manners. Regularly Quotes Chimp is paid-for immediately by spending the cost of the premium and calling a certified salesman. Policy contract can also be got indirectly, regularly as an advantage of job or partnership account after the others have negociated the cost and protection. At nevertheless additional occasions, we obtain policy contract as a lawful correct based on our personal situation (e.g., Medicare).
