It felt like it happened in one day! All of a sudden my upper arms became old , the skin elasticity gone replaced by dimples and underarm flab. NOT happy! Yes, diet and exercise can help with this and trust me I am willing to work on this but in the meantime, there are Gala’s and events to attend and now I am presented with some wardrobe challenges. As an image consultant & stylist, I only know too well that if you are not feeling confident in what you are wearing this can impede the image you want to project. I am not alone, many of my clients have shared their frustration with their upper arms as well. What is one to do? Shopping for new garments is one solution; however, this can be very expensive. In recent years, I came across this unique product that is a simple to use, cost effective and it will provide you with immediate results. I used to recommend it to clients but now I am taking my own advice.
Sleevey Wonders are slip on sleeves that will work with your sleeveless tops, dresses as well as your strapless tops. From their website:

I purchased my Sleevey Wonders from Shepherds Fashions which carry a few styles and colours in store and online. I am enjoying the black mesh (shown) and black lace. After wearing the Sleevey Wonders I am now also considering purchasing the bell sleeve style and the bandeau style for summer. To see the entire collection visit Sleevey Wonders online.
