No matter how proud we are of our body, face it! We want to look slim and fit. Nobody wants to look bigger than they are.
Working with prints are a little tricky because they might not be flattering.
Here are flattering prints and not flattering prints:
No pile is things someone size 12 and above should avoid. Mostly there are the horizontal stripes. Having it checkered tartan style is not flattering either.
Yes pile is obviuosly the suggested ones. Vertical and diagonal lines are the body. They actually look like movements for your eyes to follow.
Maybe pile is subjective. There are prints of various types. Try it on first before purchasing clothes with these prints. They may or may not look ok on you.
