Why do guys seem to hate high-waisted pants on women?
What Guys Said 85
They look good on Ale
They don't look so good on Marge
It only looks good on women who are thin/average, have a flat stomach and still have at least some ass. Considering 60% women in the US (50% in the UK, 40% in continental Europe) are overweight, so they won't even satisfy the first of these three conditions, you can see how high-waisted pants are not going to be a good idea for most women...3
They are out of proportion. You remember Steve Urkel, right? These are the female version.3
1. Mom jeans
2. Few women have the right build for them to actually look good.
3. Makes a girl look like she's got a long bottom.
The girl/girls above look cute. But in those pants look like they have no ass whatsoever lol. Even in heels that are accentuating the glutes.2
Those women look good IN SPITE Of the jeans that they are wearing. They would look good in just about anything. Most women don't have that luxury. High-waisted pants just aren't flattering.1
Personally, I don't think they are aesthetically pleasing. But women should dress according to their taste and confort, not my preferences. Just like I don't dress according to people's preferences.4
They're baggy. Unless you have a perfect physique you can't pull em off and if I had to pick I'd pick the girl next to wear that's wearing normal or skinny jeans.2
We love that thin belly we love that abdomen part below navel until the hairy Zone comes and this pants hide it, and besides it looks like she is wearing something that is not of her size1
They can look good. Maybe the guys you mention want to see cleavage which usually is not part of high waist pants outfits?1
Let's make a deal. I get to wear flip flops with my shorts, and you wear your pants as high as you want.1
it takes away from their shape. I think that girls need to get back into bell bottoms, those were great in high school2
Possibly because high waist are meant for tall girls.
Can't blame most guys for liking short girls. 😘1
Dear girls, listen, don't hide your naval.3
I like seeing the tummy and curve of her hips not covered by pants/shorts fabric.3
For the same reason women don't like certain styles on me. Unless you have a very specific body type that can make it work, high waisted pants do not flatter most female bodies. I've personally have only seen women with wide hips and a big round ass be able to pull them off. And even on them there are other style of pants that would flatter them better. In the picture above I think is a perfect example of them not working with her body. The only positive is that she has a flat stomach and her stomach is showing, but the pants themselves actually make her entire image look bad. Her hips aren't wide, she may have a nice small butt, but in those pants it makes her ass look flat, long, and almost non-existent.2
It wasn't attractive in the 90s and it's not now. It makes your butt look weird.3
I don't know I kind of like them shows up the butt just a little bit better I think1
They look like Granny jeans and she's purposefully wedging herself1
The only time I've seen them in the wild it looked like a strong wind would snap her in half it was really weird looking.1
Indeed, I don't like high-waisted slacks or pantaloons.
High-waisted knickers hold a tad more of a promise. Go figure...1
Because I see women with high, wasted men on them all the time, and it just looks trashy.2
they kinda make the butt look long and flat. sometimes it can look nice though2
I just don't like that type of pants in general. I assume others don't like it because it is more concielin1

I never knew they did.. maybe its because it makes them look out of proportion or something.1
They look like Mom Pants, and they look really funny on 20 year old rapper's girlfriends. Please, midrise. No one under 80 should wear pants that look like they come from the Blair Catalog. When you're 80, you have zero fucks to give, so dress however you damn well please.3
I think for guys it's because they prefer the low-rise, more showing look, not realizing we bloat and shit during the day lol.
Also I think it largely depends - a girl who can rock it could change a guy's mind.10
Because boys like to have opinions on things that don't concern them.12
I think they're awesome
all of my jeans are skin tight and high waisted1
Gives me a bump on in the front by tummy even though I'm skinny and the back of the jeans is usually sitting too low cause my ass isn't flat... so yeah no doesn't really look good on me unless I wear a jacket.
And doesn't look good on most girls in general. Shorts are usually fine, but long jeans just look so bad on people majority of the time.1
I have never wore high-waisted jeans. They look kinda of. Maybe I will try one day, but as for today, no. Just, no... lol
I prefer these.
I have 2 pairs of high waisted jeans. The first pair are definitely mom jeans and my ass look great, plus very comfy.
The second pair are really tight and make my butt look flat and makes my stomach pouch a bit more obvious but i don't mind that much. I still think theyre cute. They have like 4 buttons in front and im a total sucker for buttons.1
I wish some guys would actually EXPLAIN why they hate them.
I love them, I think many women can wear them. Slim girls looks more curvaceous and already curvy girls show off their curves in a great way. IMO!3
I personally think they look better on curvier, thicker, women. But who gives a damn? If you like it wear it. I'll be damned if I'm gonna let men or society tell me how I should dress. If I like or enjoy it I'm gonna wear it and if you don't like it you can look away. End of story.1
probably bc it makes sex look that much harder to get.
i think the right kind looks great it accentuates the curve of the body instead of making it look angular.2
I don't know why guys don't like them, but I personally don't like them because I have a very small waist and they always are way too baggy when I try to wear high waisted jeans1
I hope this trend never goes away again, I actually wouldn't care if it does. I love high waisted pants -- I have a few pairs of high waisted skinny jeans and I like the way they fit.3
I think high waisted pants are ugly in general. I've seen gorgeous models wear them and it just looks atrocious in my opinion. I don't know why they've come back into fashion in the first place, but that's just my opinion.2
Some highwaisted pants dont do some women favors. It makes the ass look flatter especially when you never had much to begin with.2
I have small hips.
I need to wear high waist jeans to keep them from slipping down3
Who cares what they think lmao. My boyfriend likes whatever I wear as long as I'm happy in it, all girls need a guy like that.2
not their style or they prefer clothes who looks girls like slut ! (sexy dress etc) but i think all styles have something sexy and pretty even 40s style2
I never liked this look for some reason. It makes my butt look flat1
it does nothing for the butt.
just look at the pictures3
They look like the kind of pants a granny would wear on a farm2
Almost no one can pull them off well. It's a very cute look but most people don't look good in it2
No clue but I hate high wasted pants because they press to much on my belly2
Some guys probably hate it because they find it unattractive.2
Lol I don't know, but they're my fave and no one can make me stop wearing them2
I don't know but I love my high waisted jeans. And now that you mention it my boyfriend does complain every time I wear them. Oh well haha.1
I'm not even a dude, and even I hate high waisted pants. They're just ugly.1
