There aren't too many things in this world which accentuate the very best parts of a woman's shape better than a figure hugging bodycon dress. The tight fight draws attention to all the right places, meaning anyone, no matter their body shape, can feel confident in one. This makes them ideal for fancy occasions and evening wear, including dinner parties and special nights out on the town.
Bandage Dresses and the History of Bodycons
Originally referred to as 'bandage dresses', bodycons first started making waves in the world of fashion in 1985 when legendary clothes designer Herve Leger introduced them to the world. They got the name 'bandage dresses' because they were originally created by bringing together several thin strips of fabric which were then sewn together. These strips reminded people of bandages, so the nickname 'bandage dress' caught on.
Today, the tight fitting bodycon is seen as an essential purchase for any lady's wardrobe. They are a favourite for many A-list celebrities when it comes to hitting up the red carpet as they are eye catching numbers which bring about the 'WOW!' factor. Among the top celebs to embrace the bodycon, even going so far as to design their own styles for their branded fashion labels, are Myleene Klass and Rochelle Humes.
