We all can relate to how we desire a perfectly-shaped body. But when we want to make this dream come true, it seems impossible because it is always not about your junk eating!

There can be various reasons for having flabby arms. Many women tend to accumulate fat on their arms as they gain weight and this change can also happen as we age because our skin loosens. It could also just be genetics or thyroid. Who knows?

But we surely know that those flabby arms not only cause disappointment to you, but they are also spoiling your dreams of looking stylish.

So, first, we need to tell you that are you beautiful as you are and you don’t need to feel self-conscious about this. Second, we are giving you not only one but seven solutions to bring an end to your woes.

So, without further delay, let’s go right into discussing tips and tricks to make your arms look slimmer while being stylish.

Wear The Right Fitting Bra

We are starting-off with the basics! It can be the case where you believe that your arms are just flabby and lumpy, but it is just because you are a wrong-sized bra. 

Remember, if you wear an ill-fitting bra, you are likely to cause more damage to your look. It would cause side or underarm bulges leaving your arms fat-looking. So, to avoid such situations, you should definitely buy a bra that is just right as per your size. 

Invest In Shoulder Baring Pieces

We understand that your arms might not allow you to indulge in the skin show but there are many parts of your body that you can flaunt. One of the best ways to do this is by investing in off-shoulder or cold shoulder designs

These designs will cover the wide area of arms and will balance your overall look. Both off-shoulder and cold shoulder designs are very much in trend, so this is your bonus point!

Shift The Focus By Wearing V-Necklines

Instead of constantly getting worked up because of your problem area, you should try and draw attention to the areas for which you are comfortable about!

You can bring attention to your face and neckline by wearing v-necks. They will highlight the center of your body, away from your arms, calling for attention to your collar bones. 

With this look, you can opt for statement earrings or neck-pieces so that you can easily draw attention away from your arms.

The Darker Colours The Better

This is certainly an age-old trick to give the instant slimming effect to your arms, we can guarantee you, it works! 

Dark colors (especially black) are slimming, which makes them ideal to wear on the top half of your body, thereby, making your arms look slimmer. But stay clear of those bright colours tops that bring focus to your arms.

With this, you can also give the illusion of more balance to your shape by wearing a light colour on the bottom to add contrast.

Wear Longer Sleeves

Another simple trick you can do is to wear longer sleeves. There are many sleeve designs you can try such as three-fourth sleeves, seven-eighths sleeve (or bracelet sleeve), wrist length sleeve, and long sleeves. 

However, out of these, a universally flattering sleeve length, three-fourth sleeves are great in hiding those flabby arms. These sleeves draw the focus to your wrist which is the smallest part of our upper body. Apart from drawing attention from your heavy arms, this style also adds a feminine aesthetic to the look.

Choose Your Prints And Patterns Wisely

Not only the colours but the prints and patterns can also give an illusion of toned arms.

First, you need to take note that horizontal stripes are a big no for you! Be it big or small, avoid those patterns. Instead, you can opt for vertical seams which can give your arms a slimming effect.

Second, when you want to focus on hiding the unwanted fat of your arms, then we suggest, restricting your choices to the smaller prints and completely avoiding those bold and large prints. 

There are many options available in this range, so look out for them!

We can’t emphasize this point enough! You need to ensure that the sleeves you are wearing are not too tight. As these sleeves will even highlight your problem area. 

Instead, try those sleeves that have some room in them like the flutter sleeve. This way your flabby arms won’t get noticed and you will feel much more comfortable and confident in your skin.
