Last year I saw a lot of, well, I don't know how to explain it, "ties" (not floats) attached to ladies' arms in both Smooth and Standard.  I actually found it distracting to watch.

cupcake dresses SOOOOOOO need to go.

But ... I hear at blackpool there was no one trend. It seemed pretty much anything was acceptable.

Yes, exactly like on your gown.  I love the color and it suits you well, but I'm not a fan of whatever those are on your arms. 
Just my opinion.

If you like them, that is all that matters.  Leeches or not!

I think I like them more in photos than in real life.  They can be a real nuicance - imagine a rush to the loo inbetween heats one leech seems to always manage to head for the water...

The floats are more popular in NV in Australia as the other bigger floats are used for the Standard Style. but if used in NV they can strangle you! Roll Eyes

one can use the arm sleeves instead - it gives the same effect while leaving the hands exposed.  My dress has built in sleeves that look a bit like long gloves..
