10 Sensational Sleeved Christmas Party Dresses

Say NO to Bingo Wings this Christmas!!

So the Christmas party season is upon us.

And that means one thing…..

The Party Frock!!

Yes, it’s that time of year to don our glad rags, drink Prosecco from by the bottle with your work friends, whilst dancing and singing along to Slade and trying desperately to avoid Doug from IT and his infamous mistletoe hat!

But, to me this is usually the time of year to panic!

The well intended diet has failed miserably and the shops only seem to stock different versions of the same strapless or strappy little dresses.

And, if you’re anything like me – you are completely self conscious of your arms and in-particularly those bingo wings!!

Well ladies, have no fear, as I’ve trawled the web and found these rather lovely little numbers to cover up even the flabbiest of arms and to give you all the confidence you need to grab that karaoke microphone and dance on the table in front of your boss…..

Note: I will be teaming mine with one of those ‘Bridget Jones’ miracle body suit things underneath to iron out all my other lumps and bumps too!!

    So pretty and saves me from the alternative of just gluing glitter all over swinging bingo wings! Now I just need to explore further to find one that will suck in my tummy but still accommodate lots of turkey!

    Hurrah for sleeved dresses! I’m not one for showing my arms off (one’s a bit bent for starters) and I suffer from the cold terribly badly.
