Transform short sleeves to long with Wingz.

Just because it's getting a little colder, doesn't mean you need an entire new winter wardrobe? Subtle additions mean you can still wear your fave summer pieces, even on a cold day.

I'm talking about Wingz; an innovative new product providing arm coverage for almost any sleeveless top or dress. 

My fave summer top has no sleeves, it hangs beautifully covering my 'mum tum' and has a cute crocheted peter-pan collar but I truly hate my flabby arms. So I end up wearing a jacket meaning you can't see much of the collar detail. A shame, but it was something I was used to and just accepted that my arms wouldn't be on show. 

Wearing Wingz the other night for a family meal, you can see that it looks like a long sleeve top and that the back of the collar is visible! My mum thought it was a new top all together and couldn't believe how a top can change so much with the addition of sleeves.

The fact that Wingz are worn under your clothes is fantastic for the colder months because you can still layer your clothes. 

Take this morning for example, I took Carson to school wearing the outfit below left, with a cardigan and a shower-proof jacket. Don't know what I was thinking, it's far too cold for that today! So I got home and added the Wingz, it really adds extra warmth without hindering the opportunity to layer with other over-garments.



The under-bust elastic was comfortable, didn't dig in and was barely noticable. I found that when wearing with a deep bra (i.e. 3 or 4 hooks deep as opposed to 1 or 2 hooks deep) it posed a couple of slipping issues at the back however I figured out how to overcome this - Put your bra on over the top of the Wingz, so you're enclosing the elastic inside. (Or just don't wear deep bras, simples!)

I chose the Black Stretch Full Length Fitted Wingz (£16.99) to review but there are so many options from bat-wing, to chiffon, to cotton, to lace. Whatever your summer dress or top, you're sure to be able to find a style that suits. 

Retailing from £9.99 I would say they are good value, nay, great value. You're adding a new dimension to an already-there wardrobe for less that twenty quid, rather than going out and buying a whole new winter wardrobe.

You can find Wingz on facebook, twitter or at their website www.wingzfashion.com

  9. One of the best practical idea I have seen in a long time .I have been wearing long sleeved tops under my work dress but they look bulky in the tummy region where this will get rid of that problem

  10. I am so glad this has come out save me having to layer up with another top underneath what I really want to wear.

  14. how amazing ! oh please wingz me now!!! I have psoriasis which is on all my joints especially my elbows, so I have to wear long sleeves . The trouble is in summer when the clothes are all short sleeved and I cant get cotton clothes when it is hot 'with sleeves'. wWngz would be great - I could wear cotton outfits with wingz and be able to be cool . what an unbelievable idea , totally genuis!!talk to any one with psoriasis they will tell you the same !
