Is there a rule about which direction to wear the belt (men's version)? Reverse trouser belt has health benefits! ?

When it comes to fashion coordination, many men are particular about the type and color of their belts, but few pay attention to the direction in which they wear their belts. Since childhood, there have been many opportunities to wear belts.

However, most people probably unconsciously fasten their belt by passing it through the belt loops. Also, the ease of wrapping a belt depends on which hand you are dominant, so the way you wrap it often differs depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed.

This time, we will introduce you to the rules for which direction to wear a belt (men's version) and whether wearing a reverse trouser belt has any health benefits.

1. Are there any rules regarding the direction in which a belt (men's version) should be worn?

We will introduce whether there are any rules for the direction of wearing a belt (men's version). Most men have been wearing their trouser belts unconsciously since childhood, so they probably don't even think about the question of whether there are rules for how to wear a belt until they become adults.

Most Japanese people are right-handed, so they tend to hold the buckle with their right hand and the end of the belt with their left hand. In this case, you will thread the belt through from the left side.

In other words, most Japanese people wear their belts (men's version) from the left side. And there are no clearly defined rules for how to wear a trouser belt.

So, in reality, it doesn't matter whether you put the belt on from the left side or the right side. I'm sure you've never been told which way to put your belt (men's version) on.

Therefore, there is no need to worry too much about how to tie your belt. Even among entertainers and famous people who work in public, few of them pay much attention to how they tie their belts, so you don't need to worry about whether there is a proper way to tie your belt depending on the occasion.

2. Belt (men's version) worn in the right-handed or left-handed position

We will explain whether the direction in which you wear a belt (men's version) matters whether you are right-handed or left-handed.

Generally, it is natural for men to wear their trouser belt with the tip on the left side.

That's because most Japanese people are right-handed. So, basically, you don't need to worry about rules or the direction when wearing a belt, but there are cases where the direction to wear it is clear from the design of the belt.

For example, if the buckle design clearly distinguishes between the top and bottom, or if there are letters engraved on the back of the belt, it will be natural to wrap the belt in a way that prevents the design or letters from being upside down.

As for the direction in which a left-handed man wraps his belt (men's version), he will likely hold the buckle in his left hand and the end of the belt in his right hand. When passing the belt through the belt loops, it is natural to pass it through clockwise from the right side.

As you can see, the direction in which you wrap your belt differs depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed, but as we have explained, strictly speaking, there is no set way to wrap a belt (men's version) depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed.

So, it's fine to wrap it in a way that is easy for you to pass it through your belt loop.

3. Wearing your belt (men's version) the wrong way around can have health benefits!

We will introduce whether wearing a belt (men's version) in the wrong direction has any health benefits.

There are no specific rules about the direction in which you wrap your belt, so it doesn't matter whether you put it through the belt loop from the right or the left.

However, if you always wrap your belt in the same direction, it is said that occasionally wrapping it in the opposite direction can help relieve shoulder and back pain and have health benefits. This is the "reverse belt health method" that was popular in the mid-1990s.

It seems that some people can become more flexible and stronger by wearing their pants the wrong way. Professional baseball player Kazuo Matsui and weightlifters also wear their pants the wrong way, so they are practicing the reverse belt health method.

However, in order to maximize the health benefits of wearing a belt in reverse, it is said that doing it for just a few days is not effective. Therefore, it is necessary to continue for several months.

Of course, there are various causes of stiff shoulders and back pain, so practicing the reverse belt health method will not immediately cure them. It may have some effect in alleviating or improving symptoms, but it is unlikely to have a health effect that will completely cure them, so if you suffer from stiff shoulders or back pain, I recommend that you try this reverse belt health method while receiving treatment at a hospital.

4. There is no rule for how you should wear your belt (men's version), but your trouser belt may bend.

There is no set rule for how a belt (men's version) should be worn, but sometimes trouser belts can get crooked.

This is related to the change in the silhouette of trousers, and is also being adopted in men's clothing such as suits, so the position at which the belt is fastened is lowered and the buttocks are relatively higher.

This causes the belt to wrinkle, making it easier for the belt to bend. Another reason is that the number of men doing desk work is increasing, which also contributes to the tendency for belts to bend.

At present, there is no way to prevent this type of problem, so it is impossible to prevent belts from bending. Also, even with the recent trendy pants with a slim silhouette, some manufacturers have three-dimensionally cut fabric or sewing techniques that prevent belts from bending, but this does not mean that they will never bend.

To avoid bending your trouser belt as much as possible, it is important to keep two or three spare trouser belts on hand and use them alternately, rather than using the same belt all the time.

5. How to adjust the direction of your belt (men's version) to prevent it from bending

We will introduce you to a method for adjusting the direction in which you wrap your belt (men's version) to prevent it from bending.

Although it may be a little unorthodox, by deliberately not putting the belt through the belt loops on the back of your trousers, you can prevent the belt from bending too much.

However, this method will make your appearance unbalanced, so it will not leave a good impression on the other person. Therefore, it is better to do this when you are not meeting people.

In addition, in order to adjust the direction of the belt (men's version) and prevent it from bending, it is also effective to wear the belt in reverse, as we introduced earlier. Simply put, the belt bends in the opposite direction, so it is less likely to become bent.

However, we do not recommend changing the direction frequently as this can cause the belt to become twisted.

Summary of belt orientation (men's version)

There is no rule about which way to wear a belt (men's version), and there is no correct way to wear it for right-handed or left-handed men. However, since most Japanese people are right-handed, it is natural to hold the buckle with your right hand, hold the tip of the belt with your left hand, and put the belt through from the left side.

It is also said that wrapping your trouser belt in the opposite direction to usual can help correct any crooked belt and relieve shoulder and back pain.

Is there a rule that you should wear your belt (men's version) in the wrong direction? Is there a health benefit to wearing your belt backwards?

I have summarized the following information.
