What is UP with all this sleeveless-ness?
Every single bridal dress I have seen lately is sleeveless, mostly all are strapless. They all look the same.

Little girls spring/easter dresses - all sleeveless.
All the communion dresses - all sleeveless.

Is this so they can sell little 'wraps" or sweaters to go over these? Easter is flippin cold here in the midwest and upper midwest. No way kids should be wearing sleeveless stuff.

Designers how about sticking some sleeves on these clothes?! I just started noticing this.... It is just weird.

If this is something you are just now noticing................. you must not have been paying attention the past few years.

I remember it starting with Caroline Bessette Kennedy's wedding dress.

It was like noone had seen a sleeveless wedding dress before & everyone had to have one.

I mean they are pretty and all, but we can move on now.

The little girls dresses that are sleeveless - they are selling these at christmas time for chrissakes... put some little cap sleeves on them or something. And I haven't noticed it much until now, I don't wear dresses and am just starting to shop for my little girl's dresses now.

I think because Easter is during Spring they make sleeveless dresses? Spring and sleeveless just go together? I'm guessing.

It is in the 40s here in our area for eastertime - little too cold here for summertime wear. Maybe in oklahoma or something... but not in the midwest.

I don't know, maybe the clothing manufacturers are picturing warm, sunny spring days like we have here in California. They really should think about other places and provide other options. I agree with you.
