Arm insecurities… to sleeve or not to sleeve?

I hate my arms, so I know your struggle! I bought a sleeveless dress because I felt great in the moment, but during alterations, my arms really bothered me. My seamstress added these little illusion lace sleeves and I was over the moon about them! They did exactly what I wanted, plus I think they look like they were supposed to be there and didn’t accent that I was trying to hide anything!

I’m plus size and absolutely hate my arms.  I went dress shopping this weekend and they are going to sew in sleeves for me from a bolero.  I know that I won’t be comfortable with my arms uncovered, and I don’t want to be focused on that!
