High Rise Pants Unconfortable

Hello. For me, high rise pants are always very uncorfortable when I sit. They are great standing up, but when I sit, the waistband presses againt my belly and I feel like I am being cut in half. It really hurts. I tried with belts, side adjusters, suspenders. My pants are already very loose, if I loose them up even more, they will fall down when I stand up. I have a little bit of a belly, but not much. Is it normal? It is a subject that has been bothering me for years, I have tried dozens of diferent pairs, but nothing works, only soft wool low rise pants, but the look is not very flattering to me, since I am a short guy and the lower rise makes me even shorter.

The solution is suspenders. You wear them a little loose at the waist, and let the suspenders do their job.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I live in a very hot climate, so 50% of the year I wear only a shirt, without jacket...

Buy nice suspenders. Trafalgar are good and they look great. I have tried every conceivable option for high rise trousers, and they are the only reliable option.
