bum cracks

AIBU to wonder why men's trousers seem designed to show off their bum cracks whenever they bend over?

It doesn't seem to matter if the man is short, tall, large or small as soon as they go over their hairy arses are put on show for all to view. It's too much information and makes me pity some of my female friends!! They probably feel the same for me when DP does it.

But it doesn't happen when they wear suits, only seems to be jeans and casual trousers. And yet they are oblivious to how awful it looks ... although they must know it's happening from the draught.

I've only ever really noticed it happening to overweight men and women.

Mostly wearing joggers, loose jeans or (too small) leggings.

I imagine it doesn't happen much with suit trousers because they'll be wearing a belt or braces.

Where are all these men out in the world with their bum tracks on show? confused. I've seen a repair man do so but usually speaking it's not something I've seen.
Proper fitting clothes is what they need.

Really? God in this neck of the woods it's park your bike time at weekends.

Seriously, not just my DP but pretty much every bloke in our circle. And yet they are all different sizes and wear all different types of jeans/joggers/cargo trousers.

Hmmmm, my DH never has his crack on show? I also thought it was just me overweight people?

Round here you don't see so many cracks but all the 'gangsters' have their pants on show to compensate.

You do see it a lot here, but where I live there is a massive problem with obesity.

I think on average I'd say it's more common for women to have their cracks on show, but that's probably because they're more likely to be out and about with their toddlers/babies in prams, therefore bending down to them a lot.

It's the reason I know who has a tattoo at the base of their spine and who doesn't grin

I have no idea why I'm posting about other people's bum cracks on the internet though blush confused

It happens to my OH even in suit trousers, minus a belt.
In his case it is because he has wide hips and a tapering, narrow arse. My youngest son is exactly the same, I'm thinking of sowing braces in to his school trousers he shows his adventure time undies that much!

I'm very interested to see if anybody has any solutions. Yes I know belts, but OH is twenty seven and prefers casual attire so won't realistically wear a belt the majority of the time.

This is why people wear belts. Buy your DH one!

I've seen plenty of thongs/bum cracks from slim women crouching down usually wearing low rise jeans. Just as unpleasant.

It happens to dh all the time, it is due to his body shape.

He has a long torso and long hips, so cannot do his trousers up around his very high waist. They are fastened around his hips, so if he moves about or bends over, arse crack on display.

He is overweight, but even when he was underweight by two stone he still experienced this, just not as often.

I am looking forward to the day he wears old dude high waisted trousers all the time, and his butt crack will once again be my private property!

I'm a fatty with a big bum and big hips and it happens to me if I wear low rise jeans, even with a belt.

Then he doesn't care, so leave him to it.

I've put on three stone in the last four months and this keeps happening to me now. It's because of the weight of my tummy overhanging the waistband and pushing it down. (Sorry for the unattractive image you now have! blush) When I'm back to my normal weight it won't do it.

Velcro round the waistband of his pants?

I also have wondered if they design high waisted trousers for this problem. but never bothered to get as far as googling

Cheerybigbottom Mon 10-Oct-16 12:00:13

My husband insists on wearing his trousers/jeans low on his hips (with belt!) so when he bend over you can park a minibus!

I've heard younger female staff at his work need to avert their eyes and I've told him it's not acceptable, I don't want to see a sweaty hairy arse crack why would they.

If only they did men's trousers in a mum jeans shape. Right up past the belly button towards the top lip grin

EllenDegenerate Mon 10-Oct-16 12:02:38

You're right worra he doesn't care.

And tbf he doesn't have the same problem with underwear so instead of showing a ravine of hairy arse crack it's more an expanse of grey cotton/elastane mix undies.

Zaphodsotherhead Mon 10-Oct-16 12:03:09

Is it body shape? Those with waists and hips that are in some kind of proportion that means trousers slide down more easily? I have a small(ish) waist and bigger bum, so my trousers physically can't slide down over my hips (and, in fact, will only just go up over them, must diet).

I think it's the way fashion at the moment.
Unless you wear high rise jeans/pants with quiet a long T-shirt you will always have this problem. Nothing to do with overweight people.
If you care your arse is hanging out there are plenty of ways solving that issue.
