    Default Fluff: horizontal stripes on clothing

    Should they ever be worn at all? And, if they are worn, shouldn't you make sure that the stripes stay horizontal? For example, if you don't have enough bosom to fill a shirt out, and the stripes kind of schlump inwards, should you not wear that shirt?

    I avoid horizontal stripes in most cases. Even the skinniest people I know look wide in it. So unflattering.

    I can't picture your bosom example though...hmmm

    I like horizontal stripes and they look nice on me as long as they end before they get to my hips.

    I think you would need to be very skinny to pull it off. I would look 6 months pg.

    I am such a dork! I look down to see I am wearing horizontal stripes. They are very pastel though and it does not have the same effect as bright stripes would.

    Sometimes they are very flattering. I have a few where the dark (black) stripes hit at just the right place to help define my waist.
