'Tucking in' for most women is a new thing.
Especially if you have recently had children, have ended up with a mum-tum or are carrying a lot of weight across your mid section. Even the thought of it will fill you with dread.
When I say 'tucking in', I don't mean full on Simon Cowell, trousers up under ya' boobs style tucking in, but more of as tucking in, then pulling out and slightly then un-tucking your top.
If you check out the pictures below you can see the different ways in which you can tuck in.
What will 'Tucking In' do for me?
- It will make your legs look longer; when you top is un-tucked hanging down past your groin, it shaves inches off your legs. Fran Bacon (picture with the red trousers) is only 5ft 4 and yet with her top tucked in, her legs look positively lengthy
- It stops you looking top heavy and boxy. Wearing oversized boxy and baggy tops will make you appear bigger than you are. Simply tucking a small amount of the tops hem will make you appear slimmer and as if the item 'fits' you better (far right picture)
- It will give you more shape and extra definition.
If you are a rectangle, tucking your top in will break up your body and help to create a waist
The only body shape which may struggle with tucking in is an apple.
It would be a better idea for you to wear a wrap style top or one with an empire line. Or tuck in your top by just an inch and wear a waterfall cardigan over the top.

I really hope this has given you the confidence to start tucking some of your tops in in order to elongate your legs, slim your body and boost your confidence.
