Do Horizontal Stripes Look Slimmer Or Vertical Stripes?

We know that stripes have horizontal stripes and vertical stripes. Then here is a question: Do horizontal stripes look slimer or vertical stripes? This is an important factor when choosing stripe clothes.

In general, vertical ones make your body slimmer, so you look thinner, whereas horizontal ones will widen your body, adding a couple pounds to you. But this view is not absolutely. It’s also related to the width between the stripe lines.

How To Wear Stripes

There are different ways for wearing stripe outfits. Let’s see:

The easiest and most common method of wearing stripes is simply pairing a striped blouse or any other top with a pair of jeans. A loose-fitting shirt will be a wise choice for a curvy body. If you are fat in the tummy area, better opt for loose striped tops, rather than define it.

Traditionally, fashion experts have been prone to the idea that plus-sized women should avoid vertical stripes, they think that vertical stripes will widen their body. However, this may be a mistake, since vertical stripes have the opposite effect, as oversized people appear taller when wearing vertical stripes especially.
