Best Bandage Dresses for Women Over 50

Many people believe you have to have that perfect younger body in order to wear a bandage dress. However, we believe that your confidence and personal choice trumps any rules that society tells you. Still, if you’re thinking outside the fashion box, there are a few dos and don’ts to take into consideration:


Experiment with colors and prints. Different patterns can often distract the onlooker from a less desired area, so make the designs work with you, not against you. The rule of stripes definitely applies here: vertical lines tend to make the body look slimmer, but horizontal stripes can make you look wider than you are – so tread lightly. 


Go cheap. One of the key elements of making a bandage dress work for you is material, material, material! The truth of the matter is that we are not at that age anymore where we can wear a fitted dress that only costs $10 bought at a discount. We need fabric that will not cling, isn’t sheer and helps cover those lumps and bumps. And if that means spending a little less, when you see yourself in the mirror, you’ll appreciate the extra investment.

If you want to try one out but aren’t sure if you’re going to look lumpy, simply invest in some shapewear. You’ll be amazed how it smooths your curves and flatters your figure.
