There's a certain kind of lingerie that's just arm sleeves and a connecting band over the shoulders. Any ideas about how to find such an item or what it's called? Thanks

Greetings Cwd: What an interesting research journey I've had to answer your question! The garment you seek is called a shrug. Here's how I went about locating the name and the examples for your consideration. I first found a few links for you by searching "arm sleeves" lingerie but these are snug fit gauntlet-type items that don't go all the way to the shoulder - like arm warmers: http://www.lollipoplingerie.com/stat/MUH03-2837-258.html http://www.musotica.com/noname94.html After a few keyword variations on the design, I hit upon the term "shrug" "A popular accessory over the last two years, has been the shrug. This garment consists of two sleeves with a strip connecting them across the back. This pattern can make a very fresh and innovative accessory for a high glamour dance costume." From http://www.davina.org/CNMay2001/Patterns.html Here's a leather shrug: http://www.aleather.com/vixen/FSL531-SNA.html I think you are looking for a dance shrug design, though, like the one at http://www.allaboutdance.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=AL114345&Category_Code=body-knitwear or http://www.discountdance.com/frame_set.php3?mf=http://www.discountdance.com/dancewear/product_1630.html. This design is the closest to your description and dance shrugs have almost no back to them. Then, I found lace shrugs: http://www.bippy.com/4031.htm - see the Shrug price at the bottom of the page. Only $18.50! With removable maribou. The site at http://www.wylde.com/_sldlingerie/it050014.htm offers the same one for $23.99. Lace shrug http://www.men-and-women-clothing.com/html/lace_shrug.html Plus-size black lace shrugs http://homepage.ntlworld.com/lizbet/accessories2.htm There a listing for a "fishnet shrug any size" about 3/4 of the way down the page at http://members.ebay.com/ws2/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=theblackcatcloset - the seller is The Black Cat Closet at Ebay. The seller page is located at http://cgi2.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=theblackcatcloset&item=-1&frompage=222 if you want to contact that store. Chemise with short-sleeved shrug http://www.pajamashoppe.com/chemise_chantillylace.html Short-sleeved shrug http://www.trashylady.com/lingerie/gowns/3438.htm Thanks for asking this interesting question! Should you require clarification of any of the links or information I have provided, please request it and I will be happy to respond.

Wow! Not only do I get an answer. I get the research method too. Thank you very much. The best I could think to try was "bolero" and "sleeves only". Thanks again!

"Wow!" back at you, Cwd! I'm delighted that you are pleased with my results, and I thank you for your added generosity and the kind words. It was a pleasure playing Nancy Drew on this topic and I'm glad you enjoyed my sharing the method of my research. I do love a good mystery. ;) Best regards, journalist-ga
