The Appeal of Cheap Bandage Dresses
The litmus test of any apparel to be counted as classic in fashion annals is time. This can also be termed as “Form is temporary, the class is permanent”. Moreover, when even a common man or woman in the street adopts the fashion willingly, the fashion trend is indeed visible to all.
The fashion industry has typical fast evolving features, dependent on numerous variables, which change frequently. Women’s fashion apparel is considered to change faster than that of their male counterparts. Thus for any dressing style to remain popular across generations is an incredible achievement. Bandage dresses, for example, have retained their edge in the contemporary fashion world ever since first launched some five decades back. The wardrobes of all fashion conscious women, between the age group of 16 to 60, frequently have a bandage dress tucked in there.
The creation of first bandage dresses from the French designer house of Herve Leger in the eighties has grown in popularity around the world. Herve Leger created these dresses by joining strips of stretchable fabrics. These strips of clothing materials usually used in foundation garments in the apparel industry looked like medical bandage strips and were thus christened bandage dresses. The creative genius of the fashion house produced a body-clinging dress which hugged close to the body. The dress revealed the contours of the women body aesthetically and also helped them conceal the unwanted folds which they prefer to hide.
The bandage dress soon became a favourite fashion style of matinee idols, fashion divas and social glitterati in the western world. The dress was launched in the period when the women’s power was asserting itself in all walks of life and bandage dresses presented an ideal blend of independence and appeal. Fashion models and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan and even the current celluloid stars can be seen donning bandage dresses in various social events.
The bandage dresses have also evolved over time, and various fashion designers have experimented and enriched the style in various ways. The use of colourful fabrics, different neck styles, strapless, mini and midi style, are some popular examples of bandage dresses which have been created by different fashion houses over the years.
The initial bandage dresses were indeed quite expensive and were out of reach for people with limited budgets. However, the demand for these dresses prompted the apparel houses to bring forth cheap bandage dresses. The scale of production and introduction of cheaper synthetic fabrics also helped the fashion labels to lower the production cost and make the availability of cheap bandage dresses affordable to the larger section of the population.
In the age of online fashion stores, almost all fashion websites have a dedicated segment of cheap bandage dresses in their web stores. The dresses found here at affordable rates are not always inferior in quality; often they are discounted to reduce their inventory and bring in latest collections to their store.
