How To Pick Suspenders That Fit Perfectly

When it comes to picking the perfect pair of suspenders, sizing might be the last thing you’re thinking about. Don’t all suspenders fit the same?

For the most part, yes, as long as your suspenders are adjustable, you should find that suspenders generally fit the same. However, having said that, here at JJ Suspenders we don’t want to give you a pair of suspenders that just fit, we want to find you a pair of suspenders that fit perfectly

In order to do so, there are a couple considerations you should make when trying to find perfectly fitted suspenders. 

But first, before we dive too heavily into that, we just want to quickly point out that if you’re concerned about the sizing of your suspenders as they relate to width, we suggest checking out this article. Today we will only be focusing on suspenders sizing as it relates to height. 

In addition, if you’re concerned about finding suspenders that are adjustable, you don’t need to be, because all of the suspenders at JJ Suspenders come with a metal adjuster that will allow you to shorten or lengthen the suspenders to suit your needs. 

For example, notice how in the image below the metal adjuster falls at a different point on each of these men. This goes to show that different height men will require different length suspenders: 

Okay, that is enough talk, let’s dive into all the considerations we suggest making when searching for suspenders that fit perfectly: 

1) Consider the length of your torso 

When we think about our own height, we don’t often think about this measurement in terms of our torso length versus our leg length. We just think of height simply as height. 

However, when we’re looking at finding perfectly fitted suspenders, this can be a mistake.

If you have a torso that is longer than average, or shorter than average, this might affect how well fitted your suspenders are. 

Generally, anyone between the height of 5’2 and 6’2 should have no problem with JJ Suspenders; however, the length of your torso could impact the fit. All of our suspenders come with a 30 day money back guarantee. If they don’t fit you like a glove, return them, no questions asked.

2) Different materials will affect fit 

Suspenders come in different fabrics. At JJ Suspenders we specialize in leather, fabric (classic suspenders), ribbon (formal suspenders), and elastic (skinny suspenders). 

Picking different fabrics for your suspenders will impact the fit. 

For example, elastic suspenders are going to have a snug fit, ensuring your suspenders will comfortably stay in place all night long. In other words, elastic suspenders are perfect if you’re going to be wearing suspenders for long periods of time.

Ribbon will also have a snug fit, but slightly looser than elastic. You’ll also likely find that the ribbon suspenders give you a more formal look that’s ideal for a wedding or big event.

Fabric suspenders won’t be as snug as the two mentioned above, but we’ve taken the time to source the highest quality fabrics for our suspenders, so you can rest-assured that our fabric suspenders are the highest quality.

And lastly, while the leather suspenders might have the least amount of give to them, they will loosen up over time, making fit not an issue.

In general, we recommend all four fabrics, and guarantee the sizing of all our suspenders, but if you’re concerned with having suspenders that’s not going to budge, the elastic suspenders are probably your best bet.

3) Consider whether you’re wearing buttons or clips 

All JJ Suspenders come with both button and clip attachments, so you can feel confident that you’ll get the suspenders style that you’re looking for. 

However, if you have to decide between the two, here’s something to keep in mind when considering suspenders sizing. 

With button suspenders, you’ll find that the suspenders tends to fit longer. If you’re tall, and you’re worried about the suspenders not being long enough to fit your tall frame, we would suggest going with the button attachment. 

The same goes for if you’re on the shorter side. Remember that the button attachment might make the suspenders slightly longer, so be sure to consider this when deciding on sizing. Also, as we’ve mentioned, all JJ Suspenders come with our perfect fit guarantee, so if you don’t like the fit of your suspenders, you can always return them. 

4) How do you wear your pants? 

While torso length is probably the biggest concern when deciding on the sizing of your suspenders, it’s also important to consider where you tend to wear your pants. 


If your wear your pants higher up on your torso (i.e.high rise), you might need shorter length suspenders than you’re considering, while the same goes for if you wear your pants lower (i.e. low rise), you might need longer suspenders. 

Either way, don’t forget to consider where you typically wear your pants to help you with picking out perfectly fitted suspenders. 


Picking out a pair of suspenders that perfectly fits you doesn’t have to be complicated. 

In fact, with that handy metal adjuster, it doesn’t have to be complicated at all. The only time you might have any issue with your suspenders is if you have a longer or shorter torso than average, but generally, this isn’t an issue for most people. 

If you suspect that our suspenders might not fit you, please don’t hesitate to reach out with your specific measurements, so we can help ensure you get the perfect fit. 

In addition, don’t forget that we have a 30 day money back guarantee, so no matter what, you can get the perfect pair of suspenders everytime.
