Hello!
Do you wear suspenders and why or why not?
How tight do you adjust them?
I have started to use them with high-waisted trousers and like it a lot.

I've been wearing them for nine or ten years now and will never return to wearing belts. I am 'eccentric' by nature, so that drew me to them, but at the time that I started preferring them I was also losing weight at a fair clip, which suspenders seemed to manage better. I find that they allow a looser, more comfortable trouser waist, require less adjustment during the day than belts and are a little more visually interesting than belts. I will, however, concede that they can be more trouble to fasten to one's trousers, generally quire going to extra trouble to have the requisite buttons added or included with one's trousers and are slightly more cumbersome in certain... *achem* sanitary functions. On balance, however, I find that I strongly favor suspenders over belts and will likely never wear or own a belt ever again.

Always--wearing them ensure your pants are never sagging or low. Belts do not do the job in my experience.

Elastic suspenders are much more comfortable when sitting. They allow the seat to adjust to the position and for the pant to not pull up.

Yeah. You can wear your trousers comfortably loose. Only drawback I think is that on a very hot day they can be a bit warm around the shoulders.
