I hate cropped sleaves - unless you are really thin or in shape it makes your upper arms look like fat sausages.

LOL as I sit here today wearing a cropped shirt LOL Thanks! LOL Just kidding, they are called something but I'll be darned if I can remember what the official name for the half sleeve look.
I guess it's a 3/4 sleeve?? Anyway, every couple of years I'm thoroughly disgusted with the clothing lines that come out and this has been one of those years. I see clothes that seem cute but good Lord, no one can wear them!
I hate the princess cut shirts, even if you are a size 2, you look preggers in them. LOL
Maybe next season we'll have better luck!

Yup - cap sleeves - very unflattering to arm fat

they look great on me. but I spend oodles of time in the gym lifting heavy weights to shape my shoulders. before that, yes, they looked chubby no matter how small!
