Shirts billowing even after tailor?

    Guys, I have a major problem with my shirts. Due to my build - only 5'6, wide shoulders and back due to weightlifting, small waist - all my shirts need to be tailored. The problem is that even with tailoring, I get some billowing around the waist when tucked in, as seen in the image below.

    The tailor fixes the length and opens the shirt's sides to take out from the extra fabric, and I still get that. If more is taken from the sides, I think I would be having a problem when sitting down. Can something be done in this case or should I just accept the fact that I would not be getting a perfect fit? Could darts solve this? I have tried darts in the past and not only it did not fix this, it also made the shirt very tight around the chest with a lot of pulling around the buttons. But it could have been the tailor's fault.

    The military tuck does not solve this either.

    darts will help make sure the tailor does not take in the hips too much. so you can tuck the shirt down all the way. it is hard to make it a l disappear and still be able to sit down. you are wearing low rise jeans.

    Lol those are not low rise jeans.

    @thread: this is normal, just tuck them in more or make them slimmer, what do you expect here? Too slim though = douchey. Very.
