I hate the strapless style, anyway. Very few women can wear them without looking as if they are going to explode over the top of the dress!
I suspect after this past Friday when everyone saw the wedding dress that Kate (Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) wore, strapless won't be as popular.
That style is perfect in that it covers batwings (I have them too).

I am with you that strapless dresses don't look good on 90% of women that wear them.
I happened to turn on HSN one day, and I saw that Kathy Najimy has this product called C'harms. There are three new lace varieties in white, antique (off-white) or black.
They seem to cover the arms beautifully. They were being shown on a model who was wearing a strapless wedding gown. I don't impress easily and I thought it was quite clever and attractive.
Perhaps you can go on HSN's website for grins and giggles. Of course, you would need to see the garment in person to know for sure.
Good luck, I live with arm disdain every day!
I have the same problems with my upper arms! I am always having to wear 3/4 length sleeves. I am going to a wedding this weekend and wanted to find something really "sassy." Strapless and backless would have been great, but not on me, lol ... ! I found a really sexy lowcut black dress with bling bling under the breasts. I found a bolero to wear with it, with see-through sleeves thus making it sexy, and it actually worked and covered up the bat wings! There are always alternatives!
