Put all eyes on you in a bandage dress

A bandage dress is a definite must for any woman or person who wants to make an impact on the eyes of everyone.

The dress first appeared in 1985. It was created by the famous legendary designer Hervé Léger. The dress is a fashion take on a common bondage practice but instead of ropes or straps, pieces of fabrics are used to wrap around the body, hence you get the bandage dress.

The dress is made up of layers of elasticated fabric, that fit around the body as if someone had wrapped the body with bandages. Since the form-fitting, figure-shaping dress debuted, many other designers have created their own take on the dress.

Tadashi Shoji, a designer from Japan based in Los Angeles, is one of the designers who has made the bandage dress his own. A Tadashi Shoji bandage dress is often unique, nicely tailored and classy. His bandage dresses have most of the signature elements of a bandage dress but not all of them. For a taste, check out the Tadashi Shoji Contrast Bandage Dress pictured above.

Max Azaria, who has taken over the Hervé Léger fashion house, is responsible for the resurgence of this dress; which at times can go up to prices of $400 dollars and more. If this price is a little too steep, consider these other shops.

Bebe Bebe has a wide range of  bandage dresses you can choose from. Most which are around or under $120 dollars. Their dresses span many colors. And the dresses are in short and long designs.

Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe If paying $100 dollars or more is still a little too much for your budget. Then try looking through the racks at Forever 21 and Charloutte Russe where the prices are just right for the woman on a budget. Even though the dresses are cheap, for someone looking for a more mature looking bandage dress, you may need to look somewhere else. (Hint: Look at the blog called The Budget Babe.)
