    Sometimes. It depends on the style. A lot of the time it looks like you’re trying to hide something and can emphasize the “problem” area, if you know what I mean.

    I think the key is having sleeves that fit properly. If the sleeves are too tight, the arms can look worse than if you didn’t have sleeves at all.

    I used to think I wanted sleeves because I’m really self-conscious about my arms, but after seeing lots of pictures of plus size brides with and without them, I ended up buying a strapless.  I think the eye is drawn to the white of the dress, so dresses with sleeves can actually make your arms look bigger and make you look wider.  Just my thoughts, though.  🙂

    Cap sleeves draw attention to your upper arms.  If you have full upper arms it shows.  Three quarter sleeves draw attention to your waist.  Long sleeves draw attention to your hips.  I don’t think that covering up your arms will make them look any thinner.  It is a shame that we tell fuller figured women to cover up.

    Depends on the fabric. Lace almost always makes them look bigger. See through tulle might help though
