Bodycon Dress vs. Bandage Dress

by Modora Fashion Women's Fashion
We often use the term bodycon and bandage dresses interchangeably, mostly because its hard to differentiate between them. They are both designed to show the feminine curves and accentuate the womanly figure. Today we shall try to understand the difference between bodycon and bandage dresses. 

To understand the difference between the two dresses, you need to understand the significance of the fabric and the fit of each of these dresses.

 Main features of bandage and bodycon dress

From its name, a bandage dress fits your body like a bandage. It is usually made with a heavier fabric that is supposed to support the body's shape and curves. The bandage dresses tend to be durable, tight and sturdy. The material supports your body and tucks in any unnecessary bulges, creating a smooth finish. The bandage dresses are meant to make the body look perfectly shaped. 


Bodycon dresses differ from bandage dresses because they don't not support the body figure. Referring to its name, body-conscious dresses, sometimes also known as body confidence dresses, were designed to flaunt a woman's actual figure. Bodycon dresses are made out of a relatively lighter fabric, hence they are more relaxing and comfortable for women. The main advantage of the bodycon dress over the bandage dresses is that women of every size and shape can wear it. These dresses are also appropriate for the warmer season because of their light fabric.


Fabrics of the dress

Bandage dresses are made of a blend of three materials — nylon, rayon and spandex. Nylon is known for its strength and durability. Raymond offers a silky finish, and the spandex causes the stretch and flexibility in the garment. These qualities of the fabrics make the bandage dresses form-fitting and comfortable to wear.


High quality bodycon dresses are usually made out of polyester blends. Some padding is also added. The thinner fabrics of the bodycon dresses provide little stretch and are nowhere like a badge dress's sleek finish. 

Compared with bandage dresses, bodycon dresses are only supposed to trace the body's silhouette. They are not as flattering as the bandage dress and do not help hide the bulges. Bandage dresses not only hug your curves but also tuck in those bulges for a neat and tidier look.  

Wearing a bodycon and a bandage dress

While a bandage dress holds and supports your body in certain places, you can still rock the look comfortably if you have confident body language. You can wear it to parties or any other such fancy occasion. 

Bodycon dresses are more appropriate if you want to stay relaxed. You can still wear Bodycon dresses to parties in the warmer season while staying relaxed. If you know you may have to stay in a dress for exceptionally long periods, you might want to consider a bodycon dress over a bandage dress. One thing that is constant with both dresses is confidence. That is the mandatory accessory you need to wear with these dresses.
