People normally wear their tzitzis out on the sides. Dress shirts are typically shorter there than in the front and back. It should be possible to use normal-length tzitzis and a normal-sized shirt together.
From personal experience:
I use a Chzon-Ish size begged - about 120cm x 60 cm.

BTW: According to the Tur (as quoted by the Aruch HaShulchan 8:10) you are not Yotzei the Mitzva of Tzitzis unless you have the strings on all your 4 sides; 2 in front and 2 behind. He learns this out from the Pasuk
The Shulchan Aruch in 8:4 similarly says:
