I have read that stripes going a certain way make a person look bigger.

I actually do not like horizontal stripes though I do not know why -I DO wear stripes but they are mostly vertical.

I have quite a few tops/tee shirts that are striped vertically.

Wow, handsome man in pic Finy!
Yes I prob look the size of a house but LOVE horizontal stripes

I do wear stripes and I have tops with both kinds of stripes. I do not care about which way they go but I have heard horizontal makes you look short or chubby.

I don't wear stripes very often. Horizontal stripes can make a person look larger than they actually are so I avoid those.
I have worn stripes, but they were horizontal.
I don't have anything now like that.
Not really a big fan, I like plain coloured clothes, no real print on them.

Stripes going down are really a dated fashion, and the trend now is to have them horizontal.
Has been for a good few years, you can still find them....but they are not as popular.
I do wear stripes. All of my shirts for work have vertical stripes. I have some casual tops with horizontal stripes

I was always taught that Vertical stripes are more slimming than horizontal ones! I used to often wear stripes ,of both types,and even Diagonal ones !!! But now I tend to like Bright plains and prints mixed!!
I wear stripes, both vertical and horizontal. I have come to realise that I look overweight whatever I wear, because I am overweight, not because of the direction of my stripes.... so now I just wear whatever I want to without worrying about how it makes me look. Very liberating!
I don't mind stripes. I have four tops with horizontal stripes, but not thin ones like those shown in the picture.

Yes. Don't really think about it.
Yes, & horizontal only.
And they don't make ME look bigger, as have very broad shoulders', legacy of being a lifelong swimmer!
No i don't wear stripes, but having said that, the last dress i bought, which i haven't worn yet, does have 1" wide horizontal stripes, (which I usually don't like, but these have large roses with pink. red, & a little white & maroon on the roses with green leaves over the b/w stripes. It doesn't 'sound' very pretty, but it is, or I wouldn't have bought it.

No I don't - just not my taste. Though it always freaks me out when large people wear horizontal stripes (especially when it's a tight-fitting top!) - don't they realise it makes them look even larger again?? So not flattering.
