Now, you can enjoy your off-the-shoulder dress without having to worry about the sleeves falling down and needing to constantly pull them back up.

The addition of the hair ties has tightened the sleeves to give you a secure finish, and because they’re on the inside, they’re completely hidden, and you can’t see them.
