    ok, so my whole family's wrists are naturally thin. even with some of the "larger" members of the family. i have been bothered lately by my wrists being thin. i have been working out every other day or so (dumbbells) for about 3 months. my arms are looking decently strong and thick, but my wrists are still thin due to genetics. so, whatever i wear with short sleeves makes me look like a wimp because all that you can see are my lower arms/wrists. i'm not sure how to wear my sleeves and still look decent. anyone out there have a similar problem? kinda a weird question, but thought i'd ask.

    Wear long sleeve shirts with shiny cufflinks to distract from your wrists?

    I have thin wrist as well, but have never let it bother me. But a nice french cuff shirt with cufflinks will certainly help. The cuff will make your wrist look larger that they are.

    And you thought I was kidding. :p

    Part of it is that the French cuff is folded over before the cufflink is added, so it tends to be thicker than a typical button/ barrel cuff.

    Hope I did not offend you. No disrespect on my part was intended. I only wear french cuffs and know quite often I am asked what it is called. Hence my post.
