Question Arm Shapewear

I hate my upper arms. For years they have been the largest part of my body. After losing 100 pounds they are some smaller but not much. Plus they are loose and flabby. Shirts that fit my arms are loose in the body. I am sure that I could wear at least one size smaller if my arms were in proportion to the rest of me.

I am seriously considering brachioplasty when I finish losing weight. In the meantime, I would love to find some shapewear for arms.

Can anyone recommend any shapewear for arms? It is too hot here in the summer to wear any but fall is coming and I want to try something to help my arms.

I did not find many options looking online. Currently I am leaning towards this but would love to hear of any others that you have used.

Thanks!

They're pricey, but Spanx makes long sleeve hosiery shirts with control- top like arms. I picked a new one up for about half price on eBay. I love it in the winter - it even looks cute layered under short sleeved tops.

I layer a top called "Cuddle Duds" under my clothes for warmth in the winter. They aren't marketed as arm shapewear but they do have spandex in them so I notice they hold my loose skin in pretty well.

They aren't very expensive and you can find them at stores like Target, Walmart or Kohl's.

I just saw a commercial on tv this morning, as I was watching I Love Lucy on the Hallmark Channel, for a product called Amazing Arms. I thought to myself, I could use that! It sells for $19.95 (plus S&H) and they were offering a deal of 3 for that price. I'm sure you can google it.

Edited to add: I just googled it and the website offers the 3-for-1 deal also; however, you have to pay extra shipping. The first black-colored one is 7.99 S&H, the next pearl-colored one is 6.99 S&H, and the 3rd black lace one is free S&H. I still think it looks like an interesting product.

In the summer I would suggest batwings shirts with a slit
