Xmas Dresses Guide (3/6): Bandage Vs. Bodycon Midi Dress
Bandage DressesThe Bandage Dress has been popular for a long time now, and is set to stay so during 2016s 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

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 youll be a knock out.
BodyCon DressesThe Bodycon has been every womans 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
