Is Sagging Gross?

Are sagging pants gross? And if they sag too far, are you disgusted by people who have their pants on the ground?

Two inventors have come up with a new kind of “fake” sagging pants that will NOT fall down. That’s because while it looks like underwear is sticking out of the top of the pants, it’s FAKE underwear which is actually sewn into the pants themselves!

In other words, the people who wear these pants are fake saggers! To make them, the company takes a normal pair of pants and then sews exposed boxers into the top of them. The elastic band on the boxers keeps the pants up.

If you’re interested in the history of sagging, it started off as a fashion statement for prisoners. In the 20th century, many prisons began issuing baggy loose-fitting clothing with no belts to the inmates. This was done so that the inmates couldn’t use their clothing for suicide or weapons. In the 1990s, rappers started to copy the style, wearing loose pajama-type clothes and sagging jeans that revealed their boxers.

And since rap fans copy what rappers do, the style became popular. Regular people like you and me started sagging! (Yes, I’m sagging as I write this.) But even though sagging looks dopey, maybe it’s not the kind of thing that should be made illegal. 
But even if you don’t like it, you have to admit that sagging is better than its opposite: Really tight pants!


  1. nice idea but not good to pretend and pose (poser) as a thug. this style originated from prison because the inmate are not allowed belts. use clothes like this with caution. being nice!

  2. They also used sagging as a way to let other inmates know they were available for sex.


No bad words, thanks!
