N.B. I tucked my undershirt into my underpants so that you can see where my natural waistline is.

So as you can see from the photos, when I'm standing up there is enough room at the waist. In fact the waist actually looks too loose.
But when I sit down, the back drops down a few inches, causing the front to get pulled in and pinch my waist (and you can see my gut spilling over the front). It's bad enough that I will usually have to unbutton my pants or even partly unzip them in order to sit down and eat comfortably.
I play soccer and work out, so my legs are butt have more of an athletic build.
So am I just being too fussy? Is this just how pants work? or is there something I can do to make the fit better the next time I buy pants?
