Wide pant advice

If I wear these pants at a comfortable height (below belly) the crotch is quite low. (Image 1) If I wear them higher, just below the navel, I think the pants fall better. But Idk if I can keep them there and it is not really comfortable, also not used to it. (Image 2) Lastly, should I get them hemmed or cuff them? (Cuff looks a bit bulky: Image 3) What do you think? Any tipps? Buy or not? Thanks!

Length looks good for wearing them higher imo, you'll probably just need a belt with them. I'd hem rather than cuff if you do want to go for the lower slung look

And then should it sit higher or lower?

Ok thanks. I will try with a belt and see if I can make it work.

In my experience high rise pants need to be perfectly fitted at the waist otherwise it would be disaster, the pants will keep falling down, and if you use a belt to tighten it up it would be super uncomfortable. Also they work better with tucked in shirt because the shirt would give you friction to keep the pants up.

Simply not true on either count. There are tons of fits in #waywt where folks wear belts with high rise pants and/or without a tucked in shirt. Yes, the tuck provides friction and, maybe more importantly, can create better proportions, but there are no hard and fast rules that you shouldn’t wear high rise pants that are too large for you with a belt and only with tucked in shirts.

'your pants need to be perfectly fitted otherwise they'll fall down without a belt' is also true for other rises of pants, it's the reason why you buy pants fitted at the waist undershirts are also helpful if you're concerned about any potential discomfort when wearing a high waisted pant with an untucked shirt

Actually on the label it says REGULAR WAIST. I guess that is something like in this image. At least that would feel comfortable and yes, I would wear a belt as well. How is the fit? How long should they be?

I think I still like the fit on 2 from the original post, as long as they aren’t uncomfortable in the crotch or seat

Ok, many thanks! So, I might keep looking for something similar that fits a little better...

You could try to cuff or hem if the last fit is more comfortable!

also like...labels are suggestions - very often helpful (care instructions for example) but you don't have to follow them

Yeah we wear pants as shirts here

if you feel more comfortable in the last fit hemming them will help but if you're still unsure it might be worth looking for a higher rise or shorter inseam

Ok, thanks for the help! I could hem them, but I wouldn't mind also if the inseam was a bit shorter.. I'll see.

A think a hem to the length on the right would look good!

I found higher rises sit well if they fall right above my pelvic bone, or if they’re high enough to belt above the navel. If my gut isn’t helping keep them up, it ends up pushing them down
