Has anyone tried "Amazing Arms" from As seen on TV? I'm looking for something to wear under my short sleeved tops so that no one pukes after seeing the flappy part of under my arms. Most people call them "bat wings" but my left arm has a balloon looking piece of lard hanging which is disgusting me!

Is there something anyone can recommend ~ what it is they're wearing & where it was purchased? I check out "Amazing Arms" from the As Seen On TV site & there is only 1 review & the person said the first time they went to wear it, the front clasp broke. Please advise as I'm desperate to hide my arms. I'm not even close to goal yet but holy cow, I'm so discouraged due to this arm thing!

They are crap! That's my opinion lol. I am post op, but a male so I wouldn't obviously wear them lol. But I got them for two of my friends who are post op (got them from Boscovs, they sell the same ones there), and it was a disappointment. Hope you find something to make you feel more comfortable!

Thank you rensterness....hoping someone will have some advice as to what perhaps they are wearing so I can try it. I'm just miserable & the worst part is that I could fit into the next size down in tops but my arms won't fit in the sleeves. :(

I remember while doing research about the sleeve, I watched a Youtube video of a lady who had the same problem with her arms. She showed some "sleeves" she put on under her shirt made by Spanx. I can't remember what she called them, but she even commented that she could wear a whole blouse size smaller with it on. I just remember thinking to myself "I'll have to remember Spanx for my arms when the time comes".... Personally, I don't know anyone who has them. I also remember my nutrtionist telling me if I don't want surgery down the road if I have excess skin, there's always Spanx. So far so good, but I am definately willing to try them one day if needed. :)

Arm compression sleeves? If so, Spanx is a good product, but there are many similar compression arm sleeves a lot cheaper that work just as good. Groupon.com just had some.

I was looking at some of those compression sleeves but I need one that would hook around my back or something...not just a sleeve. I can just picture the sleeve rolling down & my arms exploding out of my awfully tight sleeves, just like the Incredible Hulk!

:wacko:

Here's another option - I sew, so I buy fabric that matches my short sleeved shirts and add to the sleeve length. No one ever notices that the shirts weren't bought that way!
