Flabby Arms... hide 'em or show 'em???
I'm wondering what everyone else has done. How have you dealt with your bat wings? Do you hide 'em or show 'em???
Yowza Laura, you have lost a LOT of weight at 7 months! Congratulations! As for me, I carried a lot of weight in my upper arms; so not only do I have hangy batwings -- the skin on the front of my upper arms looks deflated, crepe-y and wrinkly. I am fairly traumatized by them! I usually wear 3/4 length sleeves but found some t-shirts at Footlocker (4 for $19) and if I wear the large, they are fairly loose on me but the sleeves come down far enough to cover most of the flappity skin. I think my arms are worse than others I seen on here, so maybe if I can go with "longer" shortsleeves (a little above my elbow) -- you will be okay. :) Jas

My arms are really bad. I thought for sure I would not be buying any shirts without sleves but I have bought several sleveless shirts already. They don't look as bad in them as I thought they would. Like others said, people don't notice it unless you are waving your arms up in the air. I would say try different shirts and buy what you like.
