A three-quarter sleeve is a shorten sleeve that ends at about the middle of the forearm. This sleeve can be of a very different shape and cut, either narrow or wide. Such a sleeve can be called one of the most comfortable and stylish types of women’s sleeves. It looks sophisticated and elegant, as well as allows you to emphasize the grace of women’s hands, but at the same time hide the flaws.
The secret of this sleeve is that it visually makes the whole hand thinner and even adds the aristocratic image by opening the thinnest and most elegant part of the women’s hand – the wrist and hiding the rest of the more voluminous part of the hand. This type of sleeve was very popular in the US in the 50s, whence it came to European fashion. Now, this style is again experiencing the flowering of its popularity.
But such sleeve is suitable for not all women. Plus size women should avoid such sleeves as they will visually shorten the hands and underline their obesity.
