Spanx…for your Arms?!?

I was flipping through a magazine and saw this ad for “Arm Tights” by Spanx.

This strikes me as not-too-subtle body shaming for women who are self conscious about their upper arms.  Layering a long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve shirt under a sleeveless outfit is nothing new, which means it’s already possible to wear sleeveless outfits all year long. So why the need for a new product, if not to shame women into thinking they somehow need to “tighten up” their arms if they want to wear sleeveless outfits? Hardly a “game-changer.”.  Nope…not falling for it.
