Wingz Lace Sleeves
Hello everyone. Well at long last it appears spring is finally here. The clocks have gone forward and the nights are drawing out. Along with the lighter evenings is the very welcome addition of some warmer weather.
Like most people I’m always happier when the sun is out and the sky is blue, but sunny skies are not without their problems. I’m a sensitive wee thing, or at least my skin is. Even in the mild spring weather there is the real risk of getting sunburnt unless I’m smothered in sun cream or properly covered up.
Personally I find sun cream a bloomin pain to apply. It’s fine for faces, but trying to ensure it has covered every inch of my exposed wobbly arms is troublesome, so usually I try to wear long sleeves instead.
However summer dresses are not designed to have long sleeves, so in mid summer I’m left with the option of putting a long sleeve top under my summer dresses or a cardigan over the top. Neither of these choices is ideal as layering up in summer leads to soggy pits and boob sweat!
This summer however I’ve found a brilliant alternative. The lovely people from Wingzfashion have sent me a pair of their wingz to try out.
What are Wingz?
Wingz are described as neither underwear outer wear. They are in effect a pair of sleeves (wings) joined together by a central band. Designed to be worn under sleeveless dresses as a fashion accessory, to transform summer dresses into winter dresses, and to cover up arms (either for aesthetic reasons or like for myself to protect against the sun).
I chose a pair of black 3/4 length lace wings to try out because being the good rock chic that I am most of my sleeveless dresses are black. There is also a wonderful range of chiffon, satin and stretch material wingz in a range of colours.
To wear the wings you need to put them on like you would a long sleeve top and then pull the band under your bust/bra.
For the sake of decency I won’t show you any pictures of me wearing just the wingz but you can see how they work with my dresses in the pictures bellow.
*I should add a disclaimer here, I’m not a very natural model and Mr A isn’t the best photographer, but out of the 300+ pictures he took I found 4 I’m happy enough with to share*
The wingz are a brilliant way to keep arms safe in the warmer weather. They would also look fabulous under a lovely over-bust corset for those steampunk ladies who like to have their arms covered up. I shall be trying out my wingz next time I go to a steampunk event.
Have you ever bought any wingz? If not would you buy some now?
