    Long sleeves. Cardigans, sweaters, etc. Kimonos are good, but trying to find a plain one is a bit of a buggar. I have a few oversized blouses that I sometimes wear as light jackets.

    Sad, but it's true. Long sleeves are the best, imo. Bandages are okay, but people tend to stare.

    I found that people asked me less questions when I went without sleeves than they did when I had to wear a bandage for a week. I couldn't wear sleeves last week because it was too hot and I didn't feel like passing out in the middle of college from being too hot. Luckily the weather is on the turn now and I can wear long sleeves without overheating.

    Of course, my experience could be down to the fact I'm surrounded by actual adults all day, rather than immature school leavers.

    If old enough, tattoos are a popular way of covering them up and act as a deterrent for most people as well.
