Xmas Dresses Guide (3/6): Shape it! Bandage Vs. Bodycon Midi Dress

Christmas has been slowly but surely creeping up on us for a while, but now its December invites to dinner parties, office parties, family dos and drinks are coming in thick and fast and we can’t wait! It is time you bought a drop-dead Christmas party dress in a style set to dazzle this season.

Here at Goddiva all our different style dresses follow key seasonal trends so we want to help you find the perfect dress in a style that suits both you and your festive occasion, whilst also ensuring you stay right on trend. Spread across 6 blog posts our Christmas Dresses Guide takes a look at a number of different styles for the Christmas period. So far we’ve looked at this season’s much-loved metallic trend and of course, every woman’s staple, the little black dress.

This week in our Christmas Dress Guide we’re comparing Bandage and Bodycon Midi Dresses, although both can create a fantastic festive look, read on to find out which one will suit YOU best...

Bandage Dresses

The Bandage Dress has been popular for a long time now, and is set to stay so during 2016’s Party Season. A bandage dress is made of a stretchy fabric with the appearance of being wrapped around your body (indeed, almost like a bandage!). Bandage dresses’ tight, soothing fabric works to contour and support your natural silhouette beautifully. The perfect Christmas dress for a woman with curves, its shaping fabric hides problem areas as well as any of the extra pounds you might gain around Christmas! So if you are looking for a dress to suck you in and show you off then a bandage dress is the one for you. Below are a few of our personal Goddiva bandage dress favourites for the fashion conscious…

Tan

Our Deep V Neck Cut-Out Dress is sure to wow at your upcoming parties. Cut-outs and mesh are all the rage this AW 2016 and teamed with a statement, bright clutch all eyes will be on you.

Red

Want a dress that will sparkle without accessories? Embellishments are a must-have this season. Worn with sequined heels to match, sporting our Multi-Strap Bandage Dress you will be oozing glamour.

Black

This Long Sleeved Striped Mesh Dress is great for a Christmas event in the evening. It is classic in shape but the meshed line details give it a modern, stylish touch. Paired with killer heels you’ll be a knock out.

 

BodyCon Dresses

The Bodycon has been every woman’s best friend for years. Made with a different fabric to the Bandage Dress, the Classic Bodycon has a more tailored, relaxed fit (it does not feel like a second skin like a Bandage Dress). Although a bodycon rocks your curves it does not shape the body; it is fitted as opposed to figure hugging or supporting, making a Bodycon Christmas Dress better suited to petite women. This style is timeless and our Bodycons’ can steal the show at your Christmas party when teamed with the right accessories…

Velvet  

If you didn’t know already, velvet is taking this season by storm. Perfect for a classic, sophisticated look our Velvet Midi Dress with Flower Neckline doesn’t need big accessories with its gorgeous neckline, just a simple clutch.

Sequins

This Sequin Midi Dress with Pleated Neckline in beautiful Champagne will make you stand out from the crowd at your Christmas Party. Everyone will remember this glitzy number.

Let our Long Sleeved Embellished Midi Dress do the talking. It’s embellished front places it at the top the fashion hierarchy this season, teamed with a sparkly heels you’ll feel sexy and stylish.
