Reader Elizabeth sent me this question via e-mail:
… lots of curvier women tuck in their tops, which feels totally daring and, frankly, scary to me, but they look fantastic. While I know it can be frumpy, I usually leave tails out in an effort to get some flowyness (is that a word?) going and gloss over my belly. Could you talk about the way tucking in tops or leaving them out affects proportion, and what it helps to emphasize (or not)?
When it comes to tucking, I believe the three main factors are proportion, desired aesthetic, and comfort.
