Right or wrong, many women are hyper-self-conscious about exposing their upper arms to the light of day. Yet so many of today’s styles of tops and dresses are unforgivingly sleeveless. What’s a woman to do?
I’ll suppress the impulse to recommend bicep curls – since I’m not signing up for them either. Fortunately there’s a much easier solution, with a catchy name: Sleevey Wonders.
When Ruthann Greenblat confronted what she calls “arm dangle” she didn’t just complain about it – she got to work developing independent, interchangable sleeves that would slim her arms without ruining the style of her fashionable tops and dresses.
Styled somewhat like a bolero, each set has a low V-neck side to hide under most garment necklines and reverses to a higher neckline for decolette coverage if desired.
From the original black mesh long-sleeved styles, the line has expanded to include a wide assortment of fabrics, laces, colors, sleeve lengths and styles, including this season’s new off-the-shoulder styles. A single set of Sleevey Wonders can update dozens of tops and dresses — from casual to career to cocktail.
They’re available in regular and plus size ranges, are made in the USA … and the wardrobe updates are great fun even for the rare woman who loves her upper arms just the way they are.
