After seeing many celebs wearing the famed hour glass figure Herve Leger bandage dress, SG finally gathers enough courage to try one on. I don’t want to insult myself in the dressing in case I look porky.At age 44, Elle McPherson just looks fabulous. She makes me want to run for hours on the elliptical. Pic above is SG in Hever Leger bandage dress.
To be honest, it’s an effort to put the dress on because it is truly figure hugging. After ever helpful sales person zips me up, I truly understand the phrase, “beauty is pain”. Oh my gosh, I can barely breathe but the associate assures me the dress is the correct size. A gal can’t help but have a great figure and good posture when she is wrapped up like a mummy. Anyway, I am duly impressed with Mr. Leger’s design but will need to consider its functionality as the design requires team effort and Crisco oil to slid me into the dress. I must add though, a gal truly looks stylish in this little number if breathing not is important. This mock neck bandage dress retails for $1350.

For those gals not wanting to pay $1200 plus for a Herve Leger dress, BeBe offers a wallet friendly alternative. It’s much easier to get in and out off since the material is not as substantial as a Herve Leger and the price is only $98. However, it does not offer the same construction as an original bandage dress but the idea is there.

I am debating which dress is savvier for me. SG can actually breath in this dress. I probably will only wear this piece a few times so maybe BeBe is a good choice but Herve Leger is so special, discounting breathing. So savvy gals, which dress is your favorite?
