Is anyone else tired of 3/4-length sleeves?  I find them a frumpy length on me and have simply stopped ordering tops with this length of sleeve UNLESS I plan to have them shortened to elbow sleeve.  I understand and respect that many women love 3/4-length sleeves.  But I'm finding this length of sleeve predominates QVC tops. Does anyone else wish QVC designers would make more long-sleeve tops?  More elbow-length too?

I don't really like them on me either!

I find them to be frumpy also.   They're too hot for summer and not warm enough for winter.   I won't but them unless I just must have a certain color.

I don't like them either. Have a couple, find I don't wear them much and won't be buying any more. Will probably donate the couple I have when I do my next closet de-clutter.

I like 3/4 sleeves for spring or fall but I don't like them to be too wide - more form fitting.

Snicks, my moment of revelation came when I cleaned out my closet and found was donating 99% of my 3/4-length sleeve tops to Goodwill because I never wear them.  I feel unstylish when I wear them, unless I wear them under a long-sleeve cardigan.

Yes, Itsmagic--form-fitting is a must.  Wide hems on 3/4-length sleeves look terrible.  But I still prefer a long sleeve.  : )

Not at all.

There are only so many sleeve lengths possible.

Re: Tired of 3/4-length sleeves

That's my favorite length.  Sometimes I wear sleeveless in the summer (we live in the desert), but I hate short or cap sleeves on me.  My arms are too fat and since I've lost some weight, I have bat wings!

Re: Tired of 3/4-length sleeves

I dislike them intensely!  They're no style at all, imo, & just look chopped off, unless there is some sort of treatment at the ends.

They're  too hot for summer, & not suitable layered under a sweater or jacket, since I like sleeves to show a bit.  It's gotten so that I'm thrilled to see a l/s shirt or tee!
