Buy him a new belt or suspenders...

Or buy him a shirt that says "crack kills" and has a picture of plumber butt on it

the Duluth trading company t shirts are great. I wear the mock turtle necks during the winter for an extra layer. Plus the material is pretty heavy duty, worth the extra$

Some guys like to think they are still a smaller waist size than they really are, so as their belly grows their pants get lower and shows more than other people might want to see. I do not know how he likes to dress but bib-overalls (like Uncle Jesse from the Dukes of Hazzard style) or just classy suspenders. If the suspenders had something on them, like if he was a duck hunter and they had ducks on them he might actually like wearing them more. Just some thoughts...

@O.P.: try FaceBook pictures! Take pics of him in "said" position(s) and post 'em on FB, HE'LL get the idea right quick! I don't malicously, just a random picture of him and his crack, you weren't aware that he thought this was a problem, right? LOL

It never mattered to me either way because whatever you were telling me, I already knew. When I was fat, I knew it. So I really don't understand the point either way.

Thanks everyone - and I will definitely be getting him some of those shirts.

The thing is though, I would never tell him to lose weight or exercise more or anything, because I wouldn't want him to say that to me - all I want to hear is that I'm gorgeous. But this seems different to me. Any guys want to weigh in on whether or not they'd want to be told or just go on pretending no one notices?

I should add, that I have done things to let him know his crack is frequently showing.

My pant legs did in fact lift up as a result of me having a bigger & rounder buttock!

KJ, you made me think about something. One thing that has changed during all of this that should not have ... my pants length. All of my 32" length pants are too short. People started poking fun at me. And I scratched my head ... how in the hell could this be?? Maybe I have a butt now that's consuming more length? I haven't a clue yet, but I did start buying 34 length pants to spare myself some (additional) ridicule.

When I was really heavy (240+ at 5'6") I had NO BUTT!!!!!

4yrs later and many squats performed I have a butt and my pants stay up, LOL!

The way we deal with it at our house is when someone's butt crack is showing we yell "CRACK!". Sort of a humorous way to deal with the situation.

This company says their t-shirts will prevent it.

There is also a company that makes a garment for women called Hip-T. They don't make them for men, but perhaps there is a similar company somewhere.

If the problem is dress shirts, be sure he doesn't just need the ones made for tall guys (you can have a fitting or just try some on at the department store.)

Umm...YES, It is about self respect and decency too. You are married to him and are the one person that can and should change this. It's one thing to accept people as they are, but he is doing something that ridicules the both of you. You will have to be honest and take him shopping for jeans or a new belt, something and ASAP!

But basically everyone who as spoken to him for at least an hour has probably seen his butt crack.

Please believe me that I don't care. My husband is wonderful and I'm not interested in changing him.

But respect is a big deal to him, and I worry that he loses some by not pulling his pants/underwear up.

People have commented to him about seeing too much, and have taken photos, so he should be aware that he is showing his crack.

My husband is sensitive and the last thing I want is to make him feel criticized, especially for something I couldn't care less about. Should I say something to him for what I think is his sake?
