Do guys care if a girl has fat arms?

I am really curvy and have a thin waist, big behind, and flat stomach but it seems all my fat goes to my ass AND my arms! I'm not fat or anything though

I'm always self-conscious of wearing tank tops or sleeveless shirts. so my question is do guys care if a girl has a nice body but she has fat arms?

  • While I have to agree that fat arms or 'wings' are indeed ugly, especially when the fat bunches up around the elbow, it's certainly not something I would care about or consider a reason not to love someone for, either.

    Guys who care about fat and looks will always be turned off by fat, it's as simple as that. Luckily most guys, especially the types who will be looking for a nice long relationship as well, won't care about fat arms and such.

    So in answer to your question, some do, some don't, the ones who do will quietly insult you in his head or to his friends from across the room, and the ones who don't will be viable choices for your later relationship. And he certainly won't care if he's the one for you too. :)

    Hmm, I used to have fat triceps, or 'wings' but I got rid of them by lifting a dumbell a lot at nights. Turn the fat into muscle which won't wobble, I guess. Still...they say muscles on a girl are a slight turn off, but if you tone them up right, it shouldn't be too bad, I guess. Can't really say.

    Hope whatever you choose to do, you feel better about yourself soon. :)

  • All my friends are self-conscious about their arms, saying they are too fat and everything, when the fact is that their arms are perfectly fine and I love them. I do care if a girl has fat arms, but unless you are actually overweight, it's not going to bother me.

    You don't need skinny arms to be attractive. I actually don't like skinny arms. I like having something to grab (and kiss) over there. :p

    Basically, if they're still firm, you don't have ANYTHING to worry about. The problem starts when they become VERY flabby and a little wrinkly. But seeing as how you have a flat stomach, I seriously don't think you have anything to worry about.

    I'd be more than happy to tell you what I think from a picture. =p

  • If that is your issue than tone your body... Do you lift weights or do yoga? Fat arms and even a double chin is a turn off, even if the girl is skinny.

  • Of course we fvcken' care, come on! Would you care if a guy had big fatty fat fat arms? I fvcking hope so or you'd have on disasterous child together.

  • I personally find myself more attracted to curvy women just as you have described. I have dated various physical types but for me the women portrayed in Jean A. Dominique's paintings pretty much sum up my taste. Women can be slim, trim athletic or skinny if they so choose in order to meet some preconception of attractiveness, but what really matters is how you feel about yourself. My opinion is that thick arms, thighs and even a bit of a belly are very attractive qualities in a healthy woman. (I should also note that I am 6'3" and 250lbs... so the tiny ones are a bit of a mismatch for me anyway)

    • Im not fat but my arms are a bit thick for myy body but its not that important believe me. And this one is the best comment on this page congrats to opinion owner x

  • i actually prefer somewhat thick arms ( but I don't like fat girls with stomach fat hanging over)

  • If you're not fat, like you say you aren't, then your arms can be worked on and toned. Do lateral raises, bicep curls, and tricep exercises using free weights. I do 12-15 pound weights and 50 reps. I imagine that yoga would also lean you overall, I'm going to start doing that.

    And guys won't really notice your "fat" arms in relation to your body if you described yourself accurately. So don't lose too much sleep over it. :)
