Hi, I'll be 15 soon and I can't get suspenders out of my head. I spent the summer with my parents and siblings in a holiday home on Sylt. There were also some in the neighboring house. There was a girl who always had suspenders. She was about my age. I didn't like it, but it looked great with the suspenders. She wore them on jeans or shorts. Sometimes red, blue, purple or green and all very narrow. Since then I can only think of suspenders, I dream about them at night, and there are some at our school who wear suspenders and let them hang down. I don't like that. I want to wear them properly and I've secretly bought black ones. They're a little wider than the girl's, but others didn't have them. I've put them on a few times when I was alone and I soon went crazy. I am amazed how it feels and I keep putting it on, but secretly. I don't dare to show the braces. Nobody here has braces. I don't know how to tell my parents. My brother and sister are sure to laugh. I probably can't go to school either, if they don't hang down. But I want to wear them normally. I'm scared and don't know what to do anymore. Are there still some who had it that way and what did you do?

It always depends on how you put the suspenders on. At your age (actually at any age) you can combine them very casually and cool. I would wear them with slim, washed-out jeans and a simple white T-shirt, over an open plaid shirt and a pair of sneakers. The somewhat conservative braces look much more youthful. You also have a little "protection" with the shirt. I did it that way and didn't feel so "delivered" right away. At some point I had enough courage to be very open with the porters. Take courage! I get more good than bad feedback on my suspenders.

Here are 3 of my current favorite suspenders from hosentraegerwelt.de:

Hello Matz,

Scrape up all courage, close your eyes and get on with it! No, I know, it's not that easy for you, otherwise you wouldn't have written like that.
But I don't think XOXO's recommendations are bad at all.
But if you prepare yourself a little internally and try braces at home first, it should somehow be possible. I would also start by showing the suspenders only partially, so the shirt open over it is not bad. If your siblings actually laugh and you calculate with it and decide beforehand how you will react to it (namely not angry), everything is only half as bad. Next time, they probably won't laugh anymore.

I would not fear comments from your parents either. What should you say
When they ask why you wear suspenders, you say you think it's cool!

Of course, you can still wear the suspenders secretly for a while, you decide when to do it yourself. But it's not fun. Only when you can wear your suspenders anytime and anywhere and everyone can see them you feel really good.
Once you've gotten over this point, wearing suspenders is really great fun. It's such a great feeling to be able to move freely and effortlessly with it that I don't want to miss it anymore.
When you have bought a small selection of suspenders and you can combine them in many ways, it is even nicer to do what most of the others just don't do.

It shows that you are an individual and self-confident type and with the cool look you are definitely in the trend of the times.

So, don't be shy, put on your suspenders and show yourself, better today than tomorrow!

Hi XOXO,
Hi suspenders Steffi,

I'm not as self-confident and cool as you write Steffi. But thank you for your advice. I think that's a good thing with the shirt. I already know that at some point I have to do it, otherwise it won't work. I can't get away from my suspenders. My desire for them is so great that I can't get it out of my head. When I wear them secretly, I feel incredibly good. When I see pictures where other people are wearing suspenders, it tingles inside me. It looks so nice with suspenders that I really want to wear them. I particularly like the ones shown by Hosträgerwelt. Preferably the one with the leather pieces. I'm already planning how to wear them in my head, but I don't have a lot of money to buy them myself, and I certainly don't want to ask if I can get suspenders. At first I only have my black ones, but they go well with many things.

Hi, tomorrow I want to show myself with suspenders. I have made it up to me very firmly.

That's why I write it down here, then there's no going back. I mustn't even think about it.

But it's also a huge appeal, but I'm not as cool as you are.

# 307 RE: Can Braces Be Addictive?reply

Hi, when I went down for breakfast yesterday, I gathered all my courage. I put the black suspenders on my jeans and worn them over a light blue polo shirt. I then wore a blue plaid shirt open over it. I went to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror for a while. It looked great and I liked it. The way I wore the shirt you could see the clips and the black straps on the front. My little brother laughed at me straight away. My older sister thought it was cool and my mom asked if I would be wearing suspenders now. I said I loved the way it looked. My father didn't say anything. I then wore my suspenders all morning. I also went shopping. I felt really great.
My mother called me at noon. She was in the bedroom and said she had something for me. She said she had wanted Father to wear suspenders many times and had therefore had suspenders in the closet for many years. If I could do something with it. She gave me two packs that father never carried. I was so happy. The suspenders were both gray, one solid color, the other striped. I would have bought others myself, but I was really happy to receive them. Mother said she would be very happy if I put on the suspenders now, she would have always hoped Father would wear them, but he would never have done it. In the meantime I had taken off my shirt in the house and was walking around so my mother said that with polo shirts it would be a good idea to wear suspenders underneath, I should come over here. She pulled down my suspenders, undid the two buttons on the polo collar and pulled it over my head, then pulled the suspenders back on, pulled the polo shirt back on, and straightened the collar. Then she closed the buttons again for me. I let her do it all, she was really happy. It looks really nice that way, she said. I looked in the mirror, the black braces shimmered right through. The rest of the day I had my suspenders on. It felt wonderful. I had often worn it underneath when I was secretly wearing it.
In the evening, mother asked me whether I could wear my gray trousers with gray suspenders and put on the wine-red turtleneck for the next day after Grandma and Grandpa. I wasn't enthusiastic about the trousers, but said yes, because they were so nice to me and so happy. She took out her pants and pulled out the belt, then clipped the gray suspenders onto them. I got goosebumps, I was so excited all of a sudden. She put the red sweater over it.
It wasn't a cool outfit now, but I wanted to do her a favor. I wouldn't have gone to school like this. In the morning hours I was half asleep dreaming about my Sunday clothes and how I walked around with them. I don't know how long it lasted, but I woke up totally excited and then had to (I'll keep that to myself) ....

After breakfast I put my clothes on. My mother hugged me in ecstasy and checked how the braces fit. Now I'm sitting here at the PC and have never found my trousers so comfortable.

I will write again in the next few days how it is. At school and all that.

Here is another picture of the suspenders that I got.

Hi, around noon on Sunday we went to Grandma and Grandpa. I felt more comfortable than I thought. The trousers were more comfortable than ever. With suspenders on, she sat very differently. I felt the suspenders under the turtleneck very clearly. That was really good for me. I had often dreamed of that. I also didn't know how much my mother liked suspenders. When my brother laughed again, she said that he would get some too. The suspenders were not visible this time, but they were visible under the sweater. My sister came up to me and grabbed the straps and pulled on them. She said I looked very chic.
Grandma and Grandpa were happy when they saw us and said how nice we had done. Then there was something to eat first. It was always boring for us to survive a day like this. But this time I was doing really well. It felt so comfortable with the suspenders on. I was so happy to finally wear it. In my mind I was already wondering how I would wear the new suspenders in school.
When we drove back and got home I left my things on until late. In the past, I always tore everything off my body immediately and put on feel-good clothes.
But I had never felt so comfortable in my trousers before. I would wear them to school as well, with suspenders, but I think I'll be right through then.
I then undressed and went to sleep.

I had to go back to school this morning. I almost put my trousers back on, which were still lying there with the gray suspenders. I then took the jeans with the black suspenders. In addition there is a blue t-shirt and the blue plaid shirt.

At school, the moment I took off my jacket, I was really excited. Oh look! Matz wears suspenders. The Matz in suspenders? The pants matzo in matzos? So, what do you look like? Looks great, I like it. Cool outfit, Matz! But you have to let it hang down, looks cooler.
There were more reactions from girls than from boys. The girls were mostly better. Many didn't say anything.
I survived it, but they're definitely not done with me yet. The day after tomorrow I'll have sport. I don't know yet if I'll put them on then

Hello Matz,

it's okay Matz, I think it's great how you did it. You can be proud of yourself.
It's great that your mother likes braces and was able to give you two more pairs. You can certainly use them well.
Nice of you that you met your mother a little and responded to her ideas. In the future, I am quite sure, you will develop your own style and wear the suspenders the way you like them.

If there's anything else going on at school, hold on. Blasphemy voices tend to fall silent quickly.

Keep it up and have fun with your suspenders.

Hi, Tuesday was better, but I also put my suspenders on under a sweatshirt. Some girls have asked me if I am not wearing them. I then picked up my sweatshirt. Cool said one.
On Wednesday again with a sweatshirt and suspenders underneath. But then we had sport. When I took off the sweatshirt, it started. You have hot pant suspenders on. How it is with suspenders. I said I like it. I pounded my things in the gym bag and took everything with me into the hall. I knew they'd put on their suspenders. After exercising, I took off my sweaty t-shirt. I wore the suspenders on my bare chest. It started again immediately. Oh stripties with suspenders. I quickly put on the sweatshirt.
Matze's pants are sliding down, now he's got suspenders underneath, someone rhymed. I hurried up and ran away. I almost cried at home. I didn't know if I wanted to go to school Thursday with suspenders on, but I did it. That was such shit.

I don't know if you know what it's like in school when you are 15.

Yesterday I was braver again and put the black suspenders on my jeans. I put on a light blue t-shirt with a print and the straps over it. Over it my dark blue sweatshirt jacket. The zipper was open. The girls thought it was cool again, some said they wanted to put on suspenders themselves. Am curious! At chemistry we did experiments in groups, and I even took off my jacket completely. One girl said that it looks really great over my t-shirt now that I'm without a jacket. She then put her hand on my shoulder the whole time. Our heads were very close together. When I turned to the side I felt her warmth and her smell. Her name is Jessica and she now wants to practice chemistry and math with me. I'm pretty good at that.
Jessi will come to me soon, she wants to learn with me. This morning I put on the clothes from yesterday again. Jessi likes the suspenders.

Hello Matz,

I take off my hat for your courage to wear braces at school at your age. I didn't dare to do that when I was 15.

But apparently you will soon be rewarded for it!

Hi, Jessi said she likes when I have suspenders on. She thinks it's really cool with suspenders and I would look very cute with them. She might want to buy some too. Yesterday I said she could try some of mine but she said maybe next time. Now she'll be back on Friday. But I see her every day at school. I like her, I would like to see her with suspenders on. They calmed down at school. Only when doing sports did they turn me on again when I took off my hooded shirt. I took off the suspenders and put them in my gym bag. When I wanted to put it on again after doing sports, someone in the back helped me to moor.
He said that at home he still had suspenders from his confirmation, but he doesn't need to put them on. He only wears them on Sundays when he goes to church. I would never have thought that with him. But I feel really good with suspenders. That feels so nice. My mother is really excited when she sees me with suspenders. My brother is still laughing but my mother wants to surprise him, she said. Today we're going to see my aunt. My mother wants me to put my trousers back on.My cousins ​​are 14 and 16, so the next sayings are bound to come.
