I have said time and again that I feel the world of designers need to take a serious look at how many dresses they design without the two things every woman seems to be on the lookout for these days: sleeves and pockets! For me, sleeves have always been a "thing." Yes, I hate my bingo wings. But that's not where the sleeve obsession began. When I was 13, I had surgery on my shoulder that left me with a massive scar running from the top of my shoulder straight down through into my armpit. As a teenager, these things leave marks on you that can never be fulled healed. I was bullied, made fun of and ultimately became super self conscious about the scar. So, I was always on the look out for sleeves whenever I could find them. I even remember worrying about what I would one day wear down the aisle. No wedding dresses seemed to have sleeves! Now at the age of 38, and I've never been married, I realise that was a ridiculous thought to have. I also, these days, never ever think about my scar. But, I do think about the arms and how I've done a rubbish job at keeping them in shape. They are the one part of my body I'm not overjoyed at putting on display and they aren't going to change overnight. They need work, admittedly. But, this is the summer of sleeves for coverage. So, on the off chance that anyone else is looking at buying dresses with sleeves, I've rounded up 106 of them for you to choose from! Why 106? Last year's dresses with sleeves shopping edit had 100 and I was determined to offer more for the masses. This has taken me what feels like forever. I've spent more money than I ever thought possible on a spring summer wardrobe as a result, and you'll be seeing a lot of these dresses in style edits in the coming weeks. But, I thought I'd give you a head start on purchasing. I've tried to keep everything in the cash level buying mark but there are a handful that go over a hundred!
