People say that stripes tend to make people look larger. That is not the case if it’s a well fitting garment and if the size of the stripe varies and compliments your curves. The shirt below was purchased from Burlington Coat Factory for $15. The zipper detail gives it a modern feel. The black shrug, I wear this on a regular basis, was purchased from Deb prior to its closing for $10. The black pants are from Lane Bryant but I bought them from Gabriel Brothers for $10. Gabriel Brothers in Harrisburg gets a lot of overstock and out of season Lane Bryant clothes and discounts them. It’s a great way to buy new higher end clothes at a great price! I’m sure places like this exist across the country. Do some research to find one near you!
