Do you have a type of sleeve preference for your shirts and blouses (weather and situation permitting)? 
If so, why?

Do you like “flutter” or puffy sleeves?

Do you like roll-up sleeves with upper buttons on the sleeves?

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I prefer the following:

    I like Cap sleeves

    Wintertime = long sleeves

    Summertime = sleeveless ... tank tops, halter tops

On some tops and dresses I do like puff sleeves
No, to roll up sleeves.

Long sleeves in the winter.  Women's petite XS often has exactly the right length for my arms.

Sleeveless in hot summer weather.

Where I live, winter is a foreign concept.

I can wear any sleeve length at any time, depending on the fashion of the day.

When the weather is reasonably under 100 degrees in Texas I'm usually wearing a snug long sleeved knit top of some kind. At my mature age I seem to have inherited a condition from my mother of having very easily bruised or wounded arm skin. I've actually been considering trying some of that Dermablend body makeup to cover the ever present unsightly spots on them when I do wear short sleeves.

I have noticed that some long sleeve shirts (not 3/4 sleeve shirts) are not quite long enough for my arms.

Have you had this issue too when trying on blouses or shirts (or dresses)?

Many a pretty blouse has went back to the rack because the sleeves were too short.  Sigh.

I know what my preference would be since I did get to experiement when I lived a year in a apartment. Winter would be half sleeves and up. Summer I would want to dress as cool as possible. Short sleeves and even tank and spaghetti strap tops. Maybe I would feel more comfortable with the latter when my skin starts feminizing. They look a little obtuse on me this early in my transition. Right now my parents don't let me use women's and girl's tops.
