Collagen As Elastic Trouser Waist

a: Collagen ~
b: elastic trouser waist

What: "Collagen is like elastic and its breakdown can be likened to an elasticated trouser waist. When the elastic is pulled tight, you get a smooth surface but once the tension is released, you get wrinkles." Another valid clothing comparison would be the elastic bands on the top of your socks. When they wear out,your socks don't stay up properly.
