Hi, I just thought I'd post to ask if anybody has tried/seen those armery things worn with an actual outfit. I'm graduating soon and have to wear a dress with cap sleeves, but I want my arms covered so I don't look mad/hypothermic and the lines of the dress mean that a jacket won't look great (it's a DVF wrap-style dress with a slightly Japanese looking collar). The promo pictures I've seen of armery worn with vest tops suggest that it's likely to look a bit funny with the cap sleeves, but I'd be really grateful if somebody could please tell me from experience whether I'm being pessimistic or not!
Ive just done the tights thing!! Its brilliant!! My advice is not to cut too big a hole -really good fit plus because the tights Ive used are hold you in type my arms are feeling snug and firm and warm -love it! They also cover my arm pits. Thanks everyone !!
The video keeps freezing at the same spot- just as she cuts the top off the tights. So, can anyone tell me how you actually wear them? If you stick an arm in each leg, and put your head through a whole in the gusset, then what do you do with them? Presumably you don't wear them round you neck - do you pull them down to your bust? <confused>
I used to cut the crotch and feet out of glittery fishnets in the 90's and wear as a top over a lime green satin wonder bra to go clubbing! ( teamed with white lycra hotpants and fake fur legwarmers) I looked the bomb, obviously
I often wear a sleeved body under dresses - there's quite a few around atm (even on Amazon!) including lace ones which I've worn under long evening dresses - definitely widens your evening/party wear options if you want arm coverage.
The advantage of bodies is that quite a few have scooped fronts and backs.
The disadavantage is that after a few drinks they become more tricky to do up (but I just leave them undone at that stage!)
Thanks for the M&S link - I've got big scars on one arm, and though I'm not ashamed of them, I don't always want to have it as the first thing people notice. And I don't want to wear cardigans with a smart dress
