The right to "bare arms"

With the popularity of JSKS in lolita fashion, a lot of us own blouses which we wear underneath. This helps to achieve the level of modesty that comes with the fashion, as well as adds variety to each piece by layering a simple piece with perhaps a more detailed one (i.e. a heavily ruffled collar with a more plain neckline, lacy JSK straps with a plain sleeve, etc).


So, I'd like to ask all here: In your opinion, is wearing a JSK without a blouse a taboo? Even if you still maintain coverage? I personally am from Hawai'i, and must say that at times it's so unbearably humid/hot that if you have the luck of nothing to do that day, you're either wearing little more than a bikini! I've never lived in an area with "dry heat" such as Arizona or Nevada, but I've heard that it's just as, if not more, terrible. In my opinion, although sleeves (even short ones) seem to be a trivial amount of fabric, when you're sweating in the shade at 85*F, they do retain a great amount of heat! I could never understand how some of my former classmates could wear long-sleeve shirts in the summer, or even a jacket. I think that going sans blouse is fine, so long as the "girls" are covered. I'd like to hear very much what others think (◡‿◡✿)
