The secret is in the details. Everybody is beautiful, you just have to know how to wear it with the right clothes.

Tips to cover thick arms

I have a friend, who is thin has arms wide and soft and never knows how to dress, worse right now in summer. It is for her and for all the girls that we have that problem (I include myself a little) that I make this post to be able to cover the wide arms, or in its defect also, a wide chest.

  1. How do I wear the sleeves of my tops or dresses?

Yes:  3/4 sleeves, long sleeves with an opening at the shoulders, bat sleeves and the famous off shoulder.

No:  Long sleeves (if you have a long shirt, remove it). And is that the long sleeves, when covering the arm to the wrist does not highlight any thin part of our arm. The idea is not to cover the whole arm but to give it space to see some skin somewhere and create balance.

  1. I want to wear sleeveless polo shirts, what should I do?

  1. How do I carry the bags?

Yes: Structured sacks, with shoulder pads (shoulder pad). Remove a few of your sacks, which do not fit just above the wrist, you will look thinner because, again, the idea is to give it air and space so that some skin is seen in our arms. In addition, it is nice to display the accessories on our wrists like watches, wristbands and so on.
