I suppose there is a point in every woman’s life where they reach a certain age and realise that their arms in particular start looking a bit, well there is no polite way to put it. They start getting a bit saggy and even with muscle tone just don’t have that spring back they used to. This is a particular issue if you are carrying some extra weight or like in my case you have lost a lot of weight. There is only so much exercise can do! I was incredibly lucky that following my weight loss I was able to have an arm reduction. But, realistically this is out of range for the majority of women. However, even following surgery my arms are still something I am a bit self conscious about.
Enter Wingz! This company makes a range of “sleeves” that are worn with sleeveless clothing to give you some extra coverage when you are just not feeling sleeveless ready. I was gifted a set of white wingz to test drive and review. The concept is brilliant. I do think that the black is probably much more versatile as it is easier to match the darker sleeve. But, that is just me. I don’t tend to wear lighter colours.
The line itself has a range of styles that are really beautiful and I think are an absolute godsend for those of us who are not comfortable with showing our arms. The fabric is lightweight and ideal for the summer which can be a big girls worst nightmare. Part of the range includes a Chiffon Flare style which I think would be perfect to dress up those summer numbers instead of the old standard bolero. They fit discreetly under your bra. So, they really do end up looking like a part of your outfit.
