Conscious of your arms this party season, or if like me, have you hated showing your arms when you get dressed up?
There is a solution, and a fashionable one at that!
As this month turns into a 30 day party (quite literally for some), I'm bringing to you, My Shimmy, the ultimate cover up which will take you through every party with sheer confidence, coverage and glamour.
My Shimmy is the brainchild of Fashion Stylist Sarah Price, who whilst working with clients in New York and London, regularly found that sleeveless dresses and tops were limiting her clients dressing options.
I think it's very important, as women and individually, that we are not often alone in the body issues we have. In fact, body dysmorphia and quite frankly, 'despising parts of our body' is relatively normal and My Shimmy recognises that and actively promotes and regards their evolutionary garment as one that provides women with the option of a sleeve irrespective of age, budget or dress size.
Whoever thinks of luxury fashion as not being body positivity just needs to indulge themselves in a little My Shimmy.
Dress: Zizzi at Navabi (alternatives here, here & here) / My Shimmy Long Jacquard Lace Sleeve - Composition - 80% Polymide / 20% Lycra
The lovely Long sleeve jacquard lace Shimmy, made from fine Portuguese lace with two way stretch for added comfort, was an absolute delight to wear.
Easily fitted on to my rather chunky upper arms and secured with a minimal clasp underneath my bra, I was surprised with all the greeting, hugging, tip-toeing and bending that it didn't bust and that I felt secure in the super soft to skin sleeve.
I am a UK size 18 and here, I can be seen wearing a small sized My Shimmy sleeve.
What are your thoughts on this party season must have?
