Tres Sleek Arm Shapers Are A Quick, Almost Perfect Fix For That Forgotten Flab

What: Tres Sleek Elbow Length Sleeve Arm Shaper, $29

Why: Upper arms are a big problem for a lot of people–to the extent that many women won't even wear sleeveless. Tres Sleek (formerly known as Flabuless) offers the first line of shapewear for arms, and for the most part, I think this is a great quick fix for ladies looking to temporarily tighten up without spending weeks at the gym.

I needed a little assistance putting it on, especially with the second sleeve. And like most shapers, my arms felt squeezed into the confined space. The shrug design helps keep the arm socks in place, but pulls up a bit near the armpits thus creating some pudge-like bra fat. But the elbow-length sleeves don't create any bulges near the elbows.

Still, I'd probably invest in the long sleeve version to avoid any potential bulges…and as a useful alternative to layering in cooler weather.
