Ergonomic Benefits of wearing Suspenders:
Hero Posture is the bodys natural balancing act. Without good posture, various
health problems can occur. Self-image also can suffer, since good posture makes a person
stand taller and look more confident. Some people do not realize that suspenders, which
were the primary method of holding up pants until the early 1900s, have the added benefit
of improving posture.
We use our muscles reflexively to balance ourselves when we sit, stand, sleep or work.
Our bodies would fall forward without muscles pulling us back. When your body is balanced,
it is self-supporting and requires very little help from your back muscles. Taking strain
off of your back can help to avoid many injuries. This can become especially important in
certain types of jobs or activities. With correct posture, your internal organs have room
to function normally, and blood circulates freely to create the best total fitness.
Wearing suspenders contributes to better posture by applying pressure on
the shoulders, stimulating the brain and the body to straighten and balance itself front
to back, in much the same way that balancing a book on your head stimulates the body to
straighten and balance itself in all directions. The body naturally wants to balance
itself. The brain and the body take in many sensual cues for sustaining balance and
posture, including visual, inner ear (cochlea) and pressure exerted on the muscles and
joints. We feel balanced based upon the information sent from the muscles and joints to
our brains, and our brains assume that we are balanced when there is equal pressure from
side to side and back to front.

Suspender straps provide an additional physical sense to give the body even more cues.
The gentle pressure exerted by suspender straps on the shoulders tricks the
body by creating the necessary stimulus that forces it to respond by straightening and
balancing from front to back. This, in turn, has the effect of making the person
stand taller. Good standing posture is when the ears, shoulders, hips, knees
and ankles are stacked in a straight line, shoulders relaxed and knees
slightly bent. Poor posture causes muscular strain that can cause injuries and wastes
energy. Good posture, enhanced by wearing suspenders, makes the person look healthier,
allows clothes to fit better and makes a better impression on others. The result of
wearing suspenders then, is healthier for the entire body.
They cause the body to reflexively straighten itself, encouraging the person to stand
taller. Suspender wearing also creates better posture and eliminates pressure on abdominal
organs while sitting or standing, since pants can be worn more loosely. Habitual suspender
wearers can now claim health rewards as well as fashion rewards. To Prove That Suspenders
Encourage Your body to Stand Straighter, Try This Simple Test:
- 1. Draw a line approximately 6 inches away from a wall.
- 2. Facing your body away from the wall, place your heels on the line that you have
- 3. Stand how you would normally, and use a a measuring tape or ruler to measure the
distance between the wall and the top of your shoulders.
- 4. Then, put on a pair of suspenders, adjusted taut enough so that there is a gentle
pressure on the shoulders.
- 5. Face away from the wall with your heels on the line, and re-measure the distance
between the wall and the top of your shoulders.
- 6. Depending upon the original standing posture, there will be from 1/2 inch to 2 inches
less distance from the shoulder to the wall in the second measurement.
- The back will be noticeably straighter in the suspender wearer than the non-wearer.
