What is the French Tuck?

A French Tuck is when you simply tuck your middle part of the shirt into your pants and skirt leaving the rest of the shirt loosely behind.  It makes you look taller and lean.

This kind of tucking is existing from ages but as a show called queer eye was released last year in Netflix it introduced the term French tuck and it actually became a thing. People were crazy about it and also created a hashtag #frenchtuck.

How To French Tuck Shirt?

  1. Its simple and anyone can do it.
  2. It is just the art of tucking front middle part inside the pant/skirt.
  3. But do not tuck in the sides it is an important aspect. As the art is in leaving the rest of the shirt loosely and it gives you a flattering look.

  5. The technique will slim you down, lengthen your legs but also hide your hips.
