  • A fashion trend mainly among U.S. American males that involves wearing trousers (shorts, pants or jeans) far below the waist, thus revealing much of the underwear. This style is typically worn with baggy clothing and is often associated with American hip-hop culture. Sagging is generally viewed as an expression of rebellion against traditional societal norms. A number of merchant and school policies, as well as city ordinances have emerged to limit the practice throughout the United States.
