I hate zippers! As I have gotten older and heavier I don't like Zippers on sweatshirts,jeans,other types of pant and shorts! Part of is comfort! I rather pull a sweatshirt over my head then zipping one up! I rather pull up jeans and shorts instead of struggling with a darn zipper! Elastic is so much comfortable and I don't have to worry about the zipper breaking,getting stuck, or just not going up easily! So i only buy pull on pants,jeans,shorts and sweatshirts! No more zippers!

Oh, I am the complete opposite! I hate pulling a sweater over my head. I don't have a lot of hair, but it messes up my hair to do that. Plus I like the neckline a bit loose so with a zipper that's very adjustable. I have had zippers break on pants, but when they're in working order I like zipper pants. I also like buttons, but zippers are much faster. Elastic waist is okay too though sometimes, just as long as it is comfortable. Usually elastic is too tight for me and so it always hurts. But the newer elastic bands like for exercise pants, those are okay. I work in an office, so you can't have pull on clothes. But they are nice occasionally. But for sweatshirts, I absolutely love the zippered kind (and yes, I've had several break but I don't buy the ones that are so expensive that I would be upset).
