If you’re a regular reader of my site, then you’ll probably know how much I LOVE my bandage dresses!
ClubCouture have sent me a few bandage dresses to review over the years (most are still available on their website!). I have a black, gold, patterned, and two grey tone designs.
Still I wear them all the time, because they are so easy to wear. I just slip one on and it’s like an instant ego boost! The strong, stretchy fabric pulls me together (like a corset), and I feel amazing.
But I do have to rotate them so I didn’t look like they are the only dresses in my wardrobe haha.
So today I’m testing out a red/pink version called a Premium Veena Dress. Yep, it’s amazing.
The pink, dusky rose, deep magenta and burgundy colours are vibrant and rich. They give the dress a very feminine feel, which goes really well with classic, fine jewellery and pearls. I would be completely happy to wear this to both a day time and night time event.
The fabric is soft to touch and has a nice texture; it’s not plasticky or rough.
I think I’ve put on a kilo or two from my 8 weeks of no-exercise, I’m not too sure, but I’ve definitely lost my tone and I’ve gone a touch wobbly in places. Ok ok maybe no one can notice at all, but I FEEL a bit flabby after not going to the gym and running ok?!
Anyway all that doesn’t seem noticeable in the dress because, as I said, it pulls me together like a firm corset and I feel fabulous darling!
I needed to suck it in big time to zip up this Size 6. But once it was on, it felt absolutely fine. Possibly a bit tight, but I wouldn’t want to go a size up, as it’s *supposed* to be a figure hugging, firm fitting dress!
I could still move easily in it, as you can see from my silly stretching pose, trying to expand myself to the max.
It’s very affordable for the US$129 price, especially because it’s a high quality dress.
I’ve been wearing my older designs for 2.5 years and they are still in perfect condition.
Do take a peek at the whole collection from ClubCouture!
