how to tuck in a shirt without looking fat
If you want to tuck in your shirt without having the sides bulging out, then it’s important that you take a look at your tucking techniques, the pants you are using, and the belt you are using.
1. tucking techniques
I recommend three tucking techniques:
- the full tuck
- the partial tuck
- the french tuck
1. the full tuck
A full tuck is when you tuck your shirt all the way in. This is the most common way to tuck in a shirt and it’s also the most flattering.
To do a full tuck, lift the front and back of your shirt and tuck them into your pants.
If your pants are a bit loose-fitting, make sure you have a good belt to hold them up and keep your shirt tucked in.
2. the partial tuck
The partial tuck is like a full tuck but instead of tucking the shirt all the way in, you leave a little bit out so it creates a billowy/loose look.
The partial tuck provides a flattering look to the waist when done correctly.
3. the french tuck
A French tuck is a unique way to tuck in your shirt and it’s perfect for when you want to add a bit of class to your fit.
In order to French tuck, you only tuck in the front of your shirt. You can either tuck it in fully or do a partial tuck, but the key is to only have the front tucked in.
2. the pants you use
If you want to avoid looking bigger than you are, then tucking can only get you so far.
The pants that you use are also a big component in how you are able to tuck in your shirt.
You will want to pick pants that are slim-fitting and fit well around the waist.
If your pants are too baggy, then they will be difficult to tuck in and you may end up with some bulky looking sides.
3. the belt you use
Your belt is also an important part of tucking in your shirt.
A belt is needed to help hold your pants up and to create a clean line at your waist.
When you are picking a belt, make sure that it is the same color as your pants and that it’s not too bulky.
avoiding the muffin top
No matter what tucking technique you use or what type of pants you wear, there is always the possibility of getting a muffin top.
A muffin top is when the shirt puffs out around the waist and it’s not a good look.
There are a few things that you can do to help avoid getting a muffin top:
- Wear a belt: A belt will help to hold your pants up and create a clean line at your waist.
- Tuck in your shirt properly: Make sure that you are tucking your shirt in correctly and that it is all the way in.
- Pick the right pants: Choose pants that fit well around the waist and are slim fitting.
In conclusion, there are a few things that you can do to help you tuck in your shirt without looking fat.
Following these tips will help you create a clean and polished look.
