According to WHFoods: Blueberries can help relieve both diarrhea and constipation. In addition to soluble and insoluble fiber, blueberries also contain tannins, which act as astringents in the digestive system to reduce inflammation. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Does everyone love cap sleeves except me? I'm not heavy, generally wear a size 4 or 6, but I have beefy arms and I find that a) they are tight on me and b) even if they are not, they are unflattering since they cut at an unflattering part of my arm. I can't possibly be alone in this. Yet it's all I see out there. I feel like everyone got invited to the party but me. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you need good arms to wear cap sleeves. even if you're thin, if you carry some weight in your arms, better to cover them up. [ Reply | More ]

No, he had really big forearms. I am Italian and even though I'm petite, I have broad shoulders and bigger upper arms. They aren't huge, but also not my best asset. I just don't see many women out there who have the arms to pull off cap sleeves so I am at a loss as to why there are so many out there. [ Reply | More ]

ITA about it all. I hate cap sleeves and look for the kind thay go to your elbow, which I think is most flattering on me. Also, if you're going to make fun of someone at least put a little thought into the joke. She's right, Popeye had huge forearms (maybe Olive Oil didn't keep him satisfied?) not huge biceps, duh.

I love them but am pretty particular about what part of my arm/what angle they hit. I am relatively narrow shouldered and have a boyish figure (read: no waist) so they broaden my shoulders and give the illusion of a narrower waistline. I have worked hard on my arms with pilates so I feel ok about them. [ Reply | More ]
