Bandage dresses: you don't need to be hurt to wear one

You don’t need to scrape your knee to impress with a bandage dress. Caught on Jennifer Lopez recently after her husband officially filed for divorce, the bandage dress is a stunning wardrobe jewel. Bandage dresses hug the natural shape of your body with what looks like bandages wrapped around you. The look ends up being a sexy cross between a petrified mummy—a breathtaking one at that—and a fashion supermodel.

Herve Leger, back in the 1980s, introduced the bandage dress, but it has made a statement recently with high-power starlets donning the hip-hugging dresses. Bandage dresses are best worn by women who have and want to show off a well-toned figure. However, a well-structured bandage dress can be worn by any woman, provided she picks the right color (white exhibits, while black inhibits flaws!) and design for her specific shape. In fact, full-figured women can wear a bandage dress beautifully, as the elastic dress camouflages imperfect areas.

The bandage dress is known as a body con (body conscious) fashion piece. Paired with glamorous heels or gladiator flats and minimal jewelry (the bandage dress makes a statement in and of itself), the bandage dress will make your night fabulous!
