25 stunning styles – wedding dresses to flatter or camouflage the upper arm area

If you tend to feel a tad self-conscious about your upper arms, it’s your lucky day – these stunning wedding dresses were designed with you in mind.


A cape is a stylish addition to any wedding dress and looks particularly good at a winter wedding. Galia Lahav’s style looks almost regal, while Berta Bridal’s has a whimsical feel.

Shorter capes are another fab option, we love Suzanne Neville’s dress with a Watteau-style cape, while Veromia’s cape which is short and the front and long at the back, looks almost like a veil.

Long sleeves

An obvious choice for ladies who are not so keen on their arms, stylish sleeves are very much on trend again this year and into 2017. From Clara’s traditional lace sleeved design, to Alan Hannah’s modern, funky style, there are plenty of options to suit your individual style.

Short sleeves

Short batwing, three-quarter and floaty cap sleeves can camouflage perceived ‘problem areas’.

From Temperley London’s ultra-glam embellished gown, to Philipa Lepley’s short style and Julie Vino’s sexy wedding dress, a sleeve can flatter your figure while making a serious fashion statement.
