SHORT sleeves are a necessity to beat the summer heat and fight nasty sweat stains.
This means exposing your upper arms, which can be embarrassing for the confident among us.
Instagram user Trending With Trina shared her top 5 sleeve types to make your arms look slimmer.
In her video, Trina tried on an example of each sleeve type for reference.
For her first look, Trina wore a top with slanted sleeves to slim her arms.
The second type of sleeve shown was bell sleeves, which are medium length and flowy, distracting from any pad of fat on the upper arm.
Sheer sleeves can also be used to give your arms a slimmer look.
Trina recommends this look as sheer sleeves partially cover your upper arms.
Wearing kimono sleeves can fully cover your upper arms while keeping the summer theme.
This look is perfect for anyone who wants to stay cool while staying covered.
For her final look, Trina suggested going an off the shoulder cut as it completely hides your upper arms without looking too covered in the summer sun.
Trina’s followers praised the fashion tips in the comments of her Instagram video.
“Thanks for that. I have big arms and now I know,” commented one user.
Another follower said: “I love this kimono look!! So chic.”
“I love these tops. My flabby arms have a mind of their own, gotta hide them,” another person wrote.
