    How Do You fix Your Pants?

    I am constantly fixing my son's pants (he always has a "wedgie"). I'm pulling them out and then straightening them across the lap. He will soon be driving again and I would like him to transfer into a regular seat, but he says he won't be able to fix his pants once he transfers back into his chair. What a pain for you guys! What do you do? Thanks for your help!!

    how big are his pants? i'm a girl but i wear higher waisted ones and wear them a little closer to my skin. (not tight)

    i find the looser my pants are, the more problems i had with my pants. except mine would fall off my bum and twist.

    Cali, he really like to wear them larger. He says they feel better than if they were too tight and would "ride up" more. Does this make sense? I think he also feels that he looks a little heavier in baggy jeans.

    Pants drive me nuts , khakis or jeans tend to bunch in thecrotch, and ride low in the back. I tend to wear running pants quite a bit unfortunately. Below are some links I found that may help.

    putting your hands in your pockets and using that to pull and de-wedgify your pants can help.

    I fix my pants before I get out of the car. They only seem to twist when I get in and swing my self around. They always tiwst to the same side, the left. After unloading the chair, with my feet hanging out of the car, I lean back a little bit, grab the waist band with my left hand, lean to the right and pull, and they come right around. It usually only takes one pull.

    They don't mess up when I transfer out of the car. If I do end up in the chair with twisted pants, I just lean and twist them around. It's kind of hard to describe. I lean from side to side and kind of run my hand around the waist band in a circular motion. In the chair it usually takes a two or three lean and pulls to get them straight.

    If they're really bad twisted, like after transfering to/from weight equipment at the gym, I'll go in the bathroom and unzip them, that usually makes it easier.

    I find that wearing the right size pants helps a lot. I don't know why, but my family got this idea stuck in their head that I'm supposed to be wearing pants two sizes larger, so I have a few pair of pants that are too big. When I wear those, I notice that they twist more. I also noticed that after I started wearing boxers that my pants didn't twist as much. By some mysterious magic, the boxers stay in place, so if my pants end up working their way down, I wont get busted for posetion of crack.

    When i transfer into the drivers seat i usually just work with the twist...when i get in,they twist that way...when i transfer out,they twist back to wear they were and if i find there starting to ride a little low,i recline the seat back,stuff my hand down the side and work them back up abit by rocking side to side...
