Heads up Loft! Target! Banana Republic! Remember a few years ago, when you said you were making bigger pockets for my new iPhone 6 Plus? That hasn’t really happened. I was at Target recently looking at pants, and there really aren’t any pants with a pocket that fits that beast of a phone. We almost need to make a smock with one big pocket, but like, in black so it’s business-y, that we can wear every day, to hold our ginormous phones. Ok, it would look like this, I drew it:
Here at Stand Steady, we all have stand up desks, with a new fashion problem. When we use them, we stand in sometimes different and creative ways. I am talking about putting one leg up, in a modified tree pose, using the existing sitting desk as a ledge. We also stand in second position, which we learned from ballet. (See photo below, where I'm at a FlexPro Precision.) We also sit back down and sit cross-legged on our chairs. And then stand up again, and do the other leg resting on the sitting desk. To answer my own question, yes, I think I do need standing desk pants. It’s time to let business pants get as diverse as yoga pants. Fashion people: please study this. People aren’t sitting down at their jobs anymore, but they aren’t standing there in a perfect standing position either. This calls for flexibility. So, that’s my info fresh from office land – now go make us some standing desk pants!
In the meantime, a close second to specially modified standing desk pants are pants that are tailored and fit comfortably. Find a pair of jeans or slacks that are your perfect length and offer a good amount of elasticity while still holding their shape all day. If needed, pair with a belt that hugs your hips and midsection without cutting into your stomach or restricting motion.

Back pain is very common and can be aggravated by actions at the office. Prevent back pain and find good posture with these simple steps.
STANDING POSTURE. If you work at a standing desk, stand with feet hip width apart and tuck your pelvis slightly. Relax your shoulders, and keep your elbows at a 90-degree angle. Pro-Tip: It’s so important to stand on an anti-fatigue mat.
Here’s the thing – I’ve been out of college and sitting in my office cubicle for 2 years and then I took the leap of faith to transition to a sit/stand desk. I read somewhere on some blog on some fitness site that even if I work out – it still would not take away the harmful effects of sitting on my behind all day
