There are those gals that can’t wait for summer. They can’t wait to slip into those barely there light as air slip dresses. I am not one of those gals.
We all have areas of our bodies that aren’t exactly our favorites. As I have gotten, ahem, older mine is my arms so the idea of baring them to the world commando style in a summer dress isn’t exactly my idea of summer lovin’.
There are loads of other women out there with the same issue as me.
Some of us prefer a bit more coverage. Whether it’s to hide an area we’re uncomfortable with or just preferring dresses that allow for a whole range of movement (no tugging down hems or worrying about what happens when you bend over).
My summer go-to is the 3/4 sleeve. For 99.9% of women who are uncomfortable with their arms, it is the upper part of their arms they’re concerned about. Three-quarter length sleeves are a lifesaver. Not only do they cover the flab on your upper arms but they make your whole body look trim. Since they end at a very narrow part of your arm, they highlight your firm forearm and delicate wrist, which makes you look slimmer.
They are cool, breezy and because the sleeve isn’t technically a “long sleeve” it still delivers an easy summer vibe.
I have curated a summer-tastic collection of summer dresses you can wear even if you don’t have arms like Kelly Ripa. Click Below to SHOP:
