    Yes! Your arms are monstrous! Get thee to a seamstress immediately (or commit yourself to the zoo) : (0 votes)
    No, your armholes are totally normal! Stop worrying and/or google imaging "The Incredible Hulk" : (0 votes)
    Well, that does seem a bit large. Get a second opinion but don't lose sleep over it. : (0 votes)

    I am a seamstress, and that seems about right for a medium. You got me thinking though, so I just measured my son, who wears a sm/med in mens, and his measurement is 15 1/2″. I suggest that you go to another seamstress to be remeasured though because I think that will set your mind at ease. Another suggestion would be to go to your closet and measure the armhole of one of your shirts. That will give you a rough idea.

    I’d definitely measure the armhole of a dress you own that somewhat matches your wedding dress and see how that holds up!
