Miss Elizabeth Hammons asked me to give tips on dressing a body with long limbs. Here goes!
For long arms, ranges of 3/4 length sleeves are going to be your best friend.
Wide horizontal stripes are known for widening body parts, but they play
well with the proportions of long arms, most especially if yours are thin.
lower part of the forearm 'cut off' arms, so it's something
to be careful trying to sport. However, if you have long arms, you can pull it off well.
This picture well emphasizes how the 3/4 sleeve can shorten a long arm and make it more proportional to the body. These women have similar arm lengths and the shorter sleeves really emphasize long arms (Beth, I think it looks great), but if you're self conscious about it, this sleeve can make you feel a lot better!
