How Can I Tell If My T-Shirt Arms Are Too Small Or Big?

Wearing a properly fitting T-shirt will make all the difference in the world to your comfort level and the appearance you want to project. A tee that does not fit properly can make you appear sloppy, careless, overweight or underweight. Therefore, it is important to choose your T-shirts carefully and notice the details of how it fits for the best look possible. This means not only do you need to make sure your T-shirt is not too fitted or loose in the body nor too long or too short in length, but you also need to be sure that the shoulders fit properly and the arms of the T-shirt are neither too small nor too big.

It is rather easy to determine whether or not a T-shirt fits you properly in the bicep area of your arm. When you put on the T-shirt, your sleeve should touch your arm around the entire circumference of it. It should not be too snug. If it feels tight, then it is too small. If your movement is limited by the sleeve, you should opt for a larger size or a different cut or style of shirt. If your upper arm bulges out under the sleeve, it is also not a good fit.

Sometimes T-shirt arms can be too big, especially in the bigger sizes. If you are wearing a size large or bigger shirt, you should look out for sleeves that are too loose. If you lift your arms out straight from your body and see that your sleeves droop a lot, it means that they are too big. If the sleeves are too long, they will typically be too big too, therefore you may want to look into T-shirts that have shorter arms in their style.

For women, the length of the sleeve varies a lot. T-shirts are available with regular length sleeves that arrive mid-upper arm, cap sleeves that stop just below the shoulder and ¾ length sleeves that end below the elbow. If a regular T-shirt’s sleeves arrive just above the elbow, chances are they are too big for you. No matter what the arm style of your tee, the same rules apply when determining if a T-shirt’s sleeves fit properly. No bulging, no drooping and a close neat fit indicate that the arms fit well.
