Playing with straps

I play an acoustic guitar and up to this point I've only played it sitting down.

Just recently, I've bought a strap so I could start busking and every time I try
to play standing up, it just feels not right.

It feels very unstable (I have tried many different strap lengths/ tried to bring the guitar closer/further away to my side)

but in the end I find it way too shaky without my thigh supporting it from the bottom
of the guitar.

Is there something that I'm not catching or will it come eventually with time?

I thought this was going to be about suspenders or something.

Are you wearing the strap in the correct manner?

No, they don't...

OT:
It just takes a bit to get used to.

If it's on your thigh it's way too low.

Place it so it's the same place as when you're sitting down.
