I'm Over It: Hervé Léger Bandage Dresses
Oct 30, 2008 - by Kirby Marzec
The minute Max Azria, fashion designer and founder of BCBG, decided to reinvent the Hervé Léger bandage dress, he gave women everywhere the biggest excuse to hide their flaws and still look like a goddess. It didn't matter if you had love handles, a little chub around the middle or saggy boobs, the Hervé Léger bandage dress could suck you in, prop you up and give you that perfect figure. Now, I'm not saying that women with a little extra meat on their bones shouldn't look slim and stunning when they go out, I'm just saying that the Hervé Léger bandage dress is everywhere, and it has to go. I am so sick of seeing these bands of fabric wrapped around women, sucking in every last bit, until they look like the sickly 2006 version of Lindsay Lohan. And to make matters worse, it is annoying to see women with knockout bodies and amazing style (aka Victoria Beckham) wear something so common and completely not necessary for their body type. Please ladies, save the bandages for the boo boos or the Spring 2009 mummy trend.
