Vertical or Horizontal Striped Shirts

Some salesgirls told me,"For fat people, it is better that they wear vertical striped shirts. They make them look thinner and slimmer. But for thinner people, it will be better if they put on horizontal lined shirts, so that they can look broader or fatter."

I looked at them, feeling rather pleased and convinced with the first two rules that I had learned about choosing better clothings for myself, and that was more than 30 years ago.

Now hanging in my wardrobe, I have a lot of vertical lined shirts for formal and special occasions. I don't know whether it makes other people think and feel that I am thinner or slimmer, but I do feel pleased when I put them on; somehow I feel nicer and special. LOL

But as I looked at my t-shirts, I discovered that I had a lot of wide horizontal striped t-shirts of different colors. I was surprised that I didn't follow the rule when it came to buying t-shirts. It might be that t-shirts are casual wears and nobody will care what to wear.

There are people who told me that plain dark colored shirts are good to hide the figure too, and we can hide our fat tummy away. But if we want to show our figure, then plain, lighter-colored shirts will be nice.

There are also those who claimed that wearing a long robe will make us look thinner too. Sound good to me since I have discovered lots of ways to hide my fat tummy away. LOL

As I continued to take note of my wardrobe, I discovered that I also had a lot of abstract and artistic designed shirts. These are the shirts that I love to wear during the weekends and the holidays when we make a trip to the beach or the country home.

I believe there are many rules when it comes to choosing and using our clothing, and many of us have our own views and opinions too. What we think, feel and do may not be the same, since we all have our own preferences and tastes when it comes to choosing the things that we would like to have.

What is your opinion on this? Do you love striped shirts or do you prefer plain clothings? Do you like vertical lined shirt or horizontal shirts?
