Horizontal Stripes: Flattering or Fattening?

Whomever said horizontal stripes make the wearer look larger is no friend of mine. Stripes have proven to be a perennial favorite among practically everybody, myself included. I think of stripes, like animal print, as a wardrobe neutral and am happy to work them in to my wardrobe when I’m a bit larger.  At 37 weeks preggo, there’s no looking tiny, but with smaller stripes there’s no reason to eschew the beloved print. All horizontal stripes are not created equal, and narrow stripes tend to be more flattering which is why I fell in love with this dress! …Oh, and the side pockets. More dresses need side pockets!
