How to Tuck in Your Shirt When You’re Plus Size

Featured Tips and Tricks 0 Comments

“Life is short, break the rules.” -Mark Twain

I’ve always detested fashion articles and blog posts that give rules (based on your size, shape, age, etc.). I have heard the rule that plus size women shouldn’t tuck in their t-shirts because they’ll show their tummy. {Cue eye roll} But, baby, I’m a rule breaker and I firmly believe that rules like this are meant to be broken. I won’t allow anyone to police my body or tell me how to wear my clothes and you shouldn’t either!

That said, let’s talk about tucked t-shirts, shall we?

There are a number of ways to tuck in a t-shirt. It’s a simple idea, but the smallest adjustment can totally change your look. Tucking in your shirt truly is an art and can be a bit daunting to some. So, I’m here to solve any confusion and help you decide how to tuck in based on the look you’re going for.

So, without further ado, let’s dive in!

The prep:

Tuck your shirt in tight so it almost looks like a bodysuit. This style is best worn with high and super high waisted jeans or a pencil skirt.

The laid back cool:

Tuck the front half of your shirt in and leave the sides and back out. This is great for when you’re trying to show off that fierce belt you just bought.

The blouse:

Tuck your entire shirt into your pants/skirt and then pull it out about half way. It will give it a blouse look and can change your entire look depending on how much — or how little — you pull out.

The half moon:

Tuck just the front, middle section of your shirt in, leaving the everything else hanging out. This will make you look like you cared just enough, but not too much. It can have an effortless chic appeal if done right. This look works well with sweaters, too.

The IDGAF:

Tuck in just one side of your shirt (this also works great for a button down shirt). This style ends up showcasing two different looks in one: exposing your belt and waist on one side while covering the other.
