    I agree. I have a black and white striped shirt (wide stripes) that I think looks great even though I'm not super skinny because it accentuates my boobs and my waist.

    Oh, you're so cute in that top! I wish I could have snapped a pic of the women I saw today. Just imagine if your top had been designed & cut for someone with gazonker boobs, such as my own (40G), and then you put it on your flat chest. Imagine how the front would kind of sag, which with another material you might be able to say it draped nicely, kwim? But with horizontal stripes it was just.... weird & kind of sad. The stripes sagging in front really emphasized that there was no boobage behind them.

    I don't generally wear stripes period. Horizontal or vertical. I have one 2-tone blue tshirt with horizontal stripes and it actually makes my waist look smaller. Weird. Maybe because it makes my boobs look bigger.

    You know I love you but I hate that you have 5 kids and have the face of a 21 year old and a body that looks like it's never seen pregnancy.

    And okay, YOU can rock stripes. I change my original stance.

    Definitely no horizontal stripes on me. Vertical? Well, it's just I try to avoid the whole inmate and referee look. Fine pen stripes mens' dress shirts look nice mostly though.

    Holy cow yes. Kim, I think I wore that size jeans once, in 10th grade. Though, I'm built like a female wrestler.

    Me too. I wear them constantly. I just try to be careful on weekends so the kids aren't striped too. . .we look silly when all together sometimes. But I wear a lot of stripes. I find them flattering!

    Kim, you look great in that top, very flattering on you. I cant believe you are old enough to have 5 kids!
