I am! If they’re done in a non-matronly way, I am ecstatic to see sleeves come back again.

Meh.

Dear Kate Middleton,  your dress was good for you and I thought you looked nice in it.  That being said it looked kinda itchy and, while everyone has the right to wear what they want, I hope this trend doesn’t come in style all that much.  Frankly Kate, you couldn’t pay me to wear those itchy looking sleeves in the dead heat of late May/June/July/August.  But as I said it looked great on you.  

How about capped sleeves or straps?

@Miss Fish: I agree. I wanted sleeves originally, but every shop I walked into was like, “Oh no. We don’t have anything with SLEEVES.” I wasn’t even asking for long ones like Kates!! Just something other than strapless!!!

I won’t be wearing sleeves, but I am glad she’s bringing them back.

As for them being itchy…I highly doubt that her designer custom-made lace was itchy.  Knock-off lace (and any lace that I can afford haha) is itchy, but my guess is that hers was really, really soft.

The main reason I am making my dress is because I don’t want a strapless dress! (It’s also a lot cheaper!) I loved Kate’s dress 🙂

Yeah…the only apprehension I would have with sleeves would be with synthetic lining if you perspire a lot. 😮 Arms need to breathe, especially when dancing!

Wouldn’t be an issue with lace or cap sleeves though!

I love sleeves!!  There’s a part of me that kinda hope that sleeves/straps will be more popular now.

I had long lace sleeves for my January wedding- no sweating issues!! and I didn’t have to worry about feeling insecure about my bad arms.

I just had this convo with my sister the other night. It will be nice for the upcoming brides to have a wider choice in the neckline.

I love mine, one strap, I would never do sleeveless and I’m average size.

Full out sleeves might be a bit much but heres hoping for more options.

I hope all the wedding dress designers read your letter:)  I wanted sleeves simply because I was tired of strapless.  I didn’t want cap sleeves because they make my arms look fat.  Finally I just gave up and got strapless.
