How to Stop Dress Shirts from Riding Up

How to stop dress shirts from riding up?

You invest a lot of time and money in shopping for fashionable clothes. However, if your dress shirts ride up, it can ruin that put-together look you’ve tried so hard to create. Here are our tips on how to keep dress shirts tucked in and maintain the look of a well-dressed man.

Tip #1: Choose the Proper Shirt Length

If your dress shirts are too long or too short, they will either bunch up around your waist or come untucked every time you raise your arms. Buying the right shirt length or having your shirts tailored to the proper length is the first step to keep dress shirts from untucking or billowing.

The perfect dress shirt length ends a few inches below the beltline. When trying on a dress shirt, make sure the hem covers your belt. Tuck in the dress shirt and raise your arms. If the shirt stays tucked in and doesn’t bunch up around your waist with excess fabric, you’ve found the perfect length.

The ideal dress shirt length ends a few inches below the beltline.

Tip #2: Find the Right Shirt Fit

The right fit for your shirt includes the armholes. They should be tight enough so you don’t look like a pirate, yet move easily without feeling as if your shirt will tear like you’re the Incredible Hulk. Avoid excess material under your arms and around your shoulders to keep your shirt from untucking while you move. Where you do want a bit of excess fabric is around your biceps to provide maximum comfort.

A slim fit dress shirt will help avoid excess fabric that will bulk and come untucked. Today’s shirts and suits are designed for a trimmer fit, so you should have no trouble finding a dress shirt that is a little more snug.

Tip #3: Try Custom-Tailored or Bespoke Dress Shirts

Custom button-down dress shirts have come a long way, and you don’t need to be a millionaire to afford one. A custom-fit dress shirt will be perfectly proportioned and will allow you to get the best fit with the right give, flattering lines, and the ideal amount of fabric to prevent your dress shirt from untucking.

Tip #4: Use Shirt Stays to Keep Dress Shirts in Place

Shirt stays can be a little embarrassing when it comes to your love life, but they’re great for unruly shirts. The stay attaches to the bottom of your shirt and is held in place by attaching the other end to your socks or around your foot. Note that some types of stays are visible when you sit down or cross your legs.

There are four kinds of shirt stays to keep dress shirts in place:

  1. Straight Shirt Stays: These use a single ribbon of elastic that attaches to your shirt and socks with clips. The elastic is worn on the outside of your legs.
  2. Y-Clip Shirt Stays: These stays use additional clips for more stability.
  3. Stirrup Shirt Stays: Instead of clips at the bottom, this stay uses stirrups that fit under your feet to hold the shirt in place.
  4. Shirt Stay Belt: This kind acts as a belt for your shirt that can be tightened to hold your shirt in place. It is hidden when you pull your pants up.

Tip #5: Buy an Extra Long Undershirt

Short undershirts are a common reason why dress shirts ride up. If your undershirt isn’t long enough, it will untuck and create bulk around your waist, which isn’t a good look on anyone. Buy an extra-long undershirt and stop your dress shirts from bunching!

Long undershirts also give you coverage if you’re wearing a white or light-weight dress shirt. The best undershirts absorb sweat and prevent sweat and deodorant from staining your dress shirts.

All Ejis undershirts have added length, so they stay tucked in all day. They are available in cotton or micro modal fabric; three styles and three colors. Look sharp and stay dry!
