Easy Fix For That Tight, Uncomfortable Sleeve.comments (1) July 7th, 2009
Have you ever purchased a seemingly perfect, adorable short sleeve top, only to find that the sleeves are tight & uncomfortable? This has happened to me, on more than one occasion. The tops end up going back to the store (if I remember) or consigned to the back of a closet, worn maybe once. I take them out every once in a while & having forgotten that the sleeves are too tight & unable to resist the cuteness of ther design, I put them on. After the initial tightness wears off, I contemplate actually going out in public. Then, having glimpsed the offending sleeve & the unattractive bulge it has created on my arm, I choose something else to wear & toss the top to the side. My grandmother apparently had this happen to her as well (no, we don't come from a family filled with gargantuan armed people! Our arms are pretty normal) & she showed me an easy, almost invisible way to fix the issue & save those cute tops from oblivion.
