In general, no one has pretty armpits. And women have tendency to see flaws where no one else does. I think it’s likely you’re seeing problems where there are none. I bet no one else would ever notice.

 

 

 

However there is a rare genetic disease called pseudoxanthoma elasticum which could potentially cause what you’re describing. If you think that might be the case it may be worth having a chat with your GP.

Edit: Also, congratulations on getting your dress!

Ah, in that case it’s not likely then. I’m sure you’re your own worst critic, I bet you looked beautiful in your dress!

My arm pits are like what you describe. They don’t go in at all. There is a bulge. Mine have been this way as long as I can remember but its possible they weren’t when I was younger. I don’t know. Do you ever have pain? Sometimes I will get a weird ache in one of them but I never know why.

@bambinoblue:  how funny you should post this, I have a problem with deodorant building up on my sweaters and I never considered the shape of my pits to be the culprit! 

mine bulge out slightly depending on what position I put them in. I’m pretty sure it’s a muscle. I’m guessing this because I can feel it flexing when I push on it. but I never noticed before. 

I don’t think you should worry about it. people’s bodies are different. I have not-so-slim ankles and wrists that no amount of exercising is ever going to fix. I don’t think anyone would notice your pits at all!

@bambinoblue:  Were you/are you an athlete? Sometimes mine will bulge outwards because I used to be a competitive swimmer and my shoulders can pop in and out easily. When I’m being photographed, I am careful to move my shoulders and arms more gracefully. There’s nothing wrong with practicing what to do with your arms so they look flattering for your wedding, I’m totally doing it 🙂
