I reserve the right to bare arms

Thursday 15:27 GMT

I have wardrobes full of dresses and tops I only ever wear for TV and if I limited myself to only tops with sleeves, the choice would be even narrower.

I grew up in the Middle East where my mother, who worked as a journalist, had to wear long dresses with long sleeves every time she left the house. The argument there was that any show of her flesh was a distraction to men - the assumption being, I suppose, that they wouldn't be able to control themselves.
