For years, fashion rules have suggested that horizontal stripes make those who dared to wear them look wider (ahem, fatter) than they really are so women of all shapes and sizes stayed away from them.
Curvy ladies especially have been told for what seems like FOREVER that we should never even think about wearing stripes. However, horizontal stripes actually create an optical illusion that produces a slimming effect. So don't be discouraged ladies, get STRIPED and feel sexy in the process!
Thanks for stopping by!
