Types of Dresses: The Bandage Dress Vs The Bodycon

types of dresses

Both are snug, but offer the quality in different ways:

Bandage Dress

Bodycon Dress

Fit: Bandage dresses fit you pretty much how shapewear would, controlling bulges and smoothening your body shape. Hugs you like a glove.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Fit: A fitted dress but will not give you the effect of a shapewear – a bodycon only outlines your natural shape without being able to conceal anything.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Construction: Made up of layers of overlapping woven fabric, giving it its signature look. Construction: Made from one continuous stretch of fabric for a streamlined effect.
Dress fabric: The strength of Nyon allows the dress to hold your body together tight. Lack of fabric strength is what makes the Bodycon not as figure-hugging, which could be a plus if you’re looking at something not as out there.
Shine: Bandage dresses come with sheen akin to silk, owing to the presence of rayon in the fabric. Rayon is known for its lustre-like qualities that lend the dress its trademark shine. A real bandage dress will always have some shimmer. No such shimmer in Bodycons.
