When I was in a band, and had to strum/sing I would stand and use a strap, but when I play fingerstyle I have always sat down without a strap, I guess I felt that the guitar was stable enough without. I usually compose while sitting, so to stand and play is awkward for me.
The strumming arm should hold the guitar quite secure to the body, enough that the guitar won't move to much, many people went starting find this works until they have to play an open string, that is when the neck tends to move away from you.
I comes down to what you are used to, and adaptability. Like I said, I can't (or don't want) to stand up and play (am I stubborn? Yes. Buy if it ain't broke don't fix it)
