We’ve been telling you for years that horizontal stripes DO NOT make you look bigger and now there is finally proof that wearing horizontal stripes can actually make you look thinner!
“Vertical stripes were always thought to make the wearer look taller and thinner. Now, a study by York University has dismissed all this as an old wives’ tale. Researchers showed volunteers drawings of same-sized women in both horizontal and vertical-striped dresses and asked who looked larger. In each case, the woman wearing stripes across the body was judged to be smaller.”
