For most real life (non model) bodies, the half tuck is best done as a quarter tuck that starts just past your centre-front and ends just past your side-back. 

Why? Because most bodies are not symmetrical & if you place the half tuck symmetrically over your front, it will emphasise your imperfectness. 

Its a terrific way to hide excess tummy because the folds take the eye's attention so the tummy doesnt get noticed.

Leaving the back out is a great way to hide a big bum too.

Trim tummies can get away with a full front tuck. 

Even though, the half tuck is a very casual look, its not deliberately sloppy. The best way to do the half tuck is to firstly fully tuck in the top & secondly, pull out the bits you want to leave out. 

If you are wearing a belt, bring the excess belt end downwards and let it show by half tucking the same side of your body (see photo #8).
