Is it possible to pull off the 'tucked-in shirt' look...

...if you have enormous boobs? without looking like your tits are skimming your belly button

Tucked into what? Into a high waisted pencil skirt, yes - but not into jeans or trousers IMO.

Was thinking jeans.

It's such a pain. I have a few shirts that fit nicely around my bust but are saggy around the waist. If only I could tuck them in without looking like a saggy sandwich angry

I suppose it might work once I've ditched the nursing bras...

Oh god yes you need a decent bra if you're going to try! Also this look isn't really compatible with bf'ing anyway!

I have tried hopefully for years. I don't think so, with anything sad

I manage it I think (hope!) Conditions have to be just right to pull it off though grin - the jeans need to be highish rise but not too much and sometimes it only works with rolled up sleeves (not sure why!)

I usually wear a little strappy vest underneath and then leave the front open quite far down though - perhaps that's not the kind of look you are after?

Very good bra a necessity. Def one for post-ditch of nursing bras.

Definitely agree with sleeves rolled up, much sharper. Looks better with flared jeans too for some reason, very Charlie's Angels.

I can't ever do it - my style is too casual. I look really trussed up, regardless of whether I am a 10 or a 16.

I do it and look ok, I think...

I like a semi tuck!

I like the idea of the semi-tuck as it shows off your belt but I can't seem to do it without just looking like I don't know how to get dressed. Maybe it's cos I'm old.
