About Bandage Dresses

Bandage dresses took the fashion world by storm when they first appeared on runways in 1986. Although Herve Leger  introduced these figure hugging bodycon dresses in the late 1980s the original designer is Azzedine Alaia. Alaia’s designs were seen as early as the late 1960s. A high quality bandage dress requires sound construction, amazing fabric, and a trendy design. To achieve a celebrity inspired look your bandage dress must feature four components: sturdiness, finish, comfort, and durability.

Your bandage dress needs superior stretch to ensure it hugs your body like a second skin. It also needs to be sturdy and durable so that when you put it on it resists snagging and tears. The strength also aides in control and smoothing away unflattering bulges while providing support for you bust and tush. Higher quality bandage dresses are comfortable and easy to wear for longer periods with a soft shine and polish to ensure you are radiant everytime you put it on.

Bandage dresses are versatile and work for a variety of occasions, outings, and events. Putting on a bandage dress for a formal event only requires sexy stiletto heels and a sweeping updo. Yet putting on the same dress for a casual event requires simply adding a denim or leather jacket for a sexy, trendy style. Bandage and bodycon dresses are so versatile we’ve dedicated an entire section of our blog to them that features tips and tricks on how to make these dresses work all year long.

From how to find the perfect hairstyle for the neckline of your dress to figuring out how to style your dress for work our bandage dress guides are useful, realistic, and authored by our very own fashion buyer Sasi.
