Things to hide saggy upper arms
on 2/5/10 6:02 am - Woodbridge, VA
Months ago, I remember seeing a post where someone included a video (or link to a video) of a commercial/infomercial for a product to hide flabby upper arms. They were like these clear sticky patches you could use to sort of "tape" your upper arms in place. I've actually seen the commercial on tv within the past few months as well.
Now, the video was posted here to laugh at, make fun of, etc. But now I'm interested in finding out more.
I am looking for something that might help me to make my upper arms somewhat less offensive in short sleeves. I am not interested in the upper arm girdle-ish shaper garments, and plastic surgery is not in the foreseeable future (Especially since I'm not at goal yet).
Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? What they're called so I can Google them?
How about prom-style, where you pull everything up with duct or surgical tape, then strap it across your back to hold it up and taut. The only problem is people will wonder why you're wearing shoulder pads.
I crack myself up

I have nothing against sleeves, but here's the deal: I've got a wedding this year, and, quite frankly, long-sleeved wedding dresses are just not my style! Even short-sleeved will be tough to find without looking weird, but I'm not sure I can pull off sleeveless or strapless without slapping people in the face with my arm flaps when I go to hug them or something!

This is the gown I bought:
I am by no means endorsing it but the product you are mentioning is "instant arm lift".
I don't usually like other peoples pain, but I never really liked Kathy Lee.
To be fair, I think it could have been removed more gently.
Edited to add CONGRATULATIONS!

For 10 bucks, I will definitely try it. Can't hurt any more than the ridulous wired and suffocating undergarments I wore under my Maid of Honor dress in my sister's wedding!
