3 ways to hide big arms

30 October 2015, 14:01 Tracy Gold

Do you show them or cover them?  At what age should a woman cover her upper-arms?  There are not absolute rules when it comes to this.  It's about how you feel about your arms and whether you feel okay to expose them.

If you do prefer to cover them, summer time is especially challenging, but there are a few very stylish ways of doing it.

1. Flared sleeves.  The flared sleeve is a fabulous way of slenderising your upper-arms because the flare creates the illusion that your upper arm is narrow in comparison to the width of the flare.  Even a short sleeve in a flared style, this trick will work.

2. Shrugs.  Summer tops and dresses often come sleeveless.  A shrug makes it really simple to wear sleeveless items without having to show off your arms.  Make sure your shrug fits you well and doesn’t add extra bulk to your upper body.  Shorter shrugs that don’t close in the front and end just below your back bra strap will work well.

3. 3/4 sleeves. Whether you wear a fitted (not tight), straight or flared sleeve, a ¾ length will give you extra coverage in style.   If you struggle to find styles you like with ¾ sleeves, consider shortening a long sleeved item to your desired length.  You may even have a few items in your wardrobe that will work for this.  It’s a great way of up-cycling your own wardrobe.

To see how these guidelines work, take a look at this short clip:
