Stripes are slimming?

I am a fan of stripes as a pattern on clothes, and I was told that stripes are slimming. But whenever I wear them, I find it has the opposite effect! :-/ I recently got a pair of jeans which are striped, and they make me look bigger. It also happened when I wore my old dressing gown, also striped. I'm confused!
Hi, there! Based on my experience that I can share with you, horizontal lines always make me look wider in size while vertical stripes make me look slimmer. Hope this helps. :)
