How Do I Cover Flabby Arms?

A 3/4 length top like this covers but is still very youthful.

How do I find clothes like the dresses Raquel Welch wears that cover flabby upper arms? Help!….. Rita

Hi, Rita!

Raquel Welch always looks great and one of the reasons why is she tends to wear tops and dresses with 3/4 length sleeves.

This is  a very flattering sleeve length for women 40+  because the tops of your arms, where it is usually a bit jiggly, is covered but you are still exposing some forearm which makes you look youthful, sporty and a little sexy.

I agree, it is hard to find tops that cover you perfectly  but I think it is getting better. 40+ gals have spoken up and told retailers  and they are listening. Here’s a few 3/4 length items I found that may work for you.

  1. I have the perfect solution for flabby arms, try sleeves 2 go. It’s a detachable sleeve that snaps on to your bra strap. It offers just enough coverage for the upper arm area & is designed in a soft chiffon that mixes & matches with all types of fabric. Check out
