Ask BB: Finding Felicity Huffman's Bandage Style Dress for Less




My school prom is coming up on just over a month and ideally I would like a dress similar to the one worn by Felicity Huffman on the cover of this Desperate Housewives DVD (far right, bandage style dress.) The color is unimportant, I would just like to find a dress in this style as I like the fit of it and the neckline, fabric and sleeves but so far have been unsuccessful. Any help would be much appreciated. —R

True to her Desperate Housewives persona, Felicity shows off her toned bod in a bandage style satin dress with a deep v-neck plunge neckline. Here are 5 dresses ranging from $27.80 to $235 that will help you get a similar look, hopefully one of these options will work for you!

1. EXPRESS BANDED DRESS, $79.50

I wore the EXACT same dress for NYE except in silver! I got it at Macy's. With the right lining the ruched look is totally flattering. She looks great!

That Express dress is the ONE bandage dress that doesn't look trashy/clubby as so many of them do. The royal blue hue works too!

I meant to ask you BB and sorry if you've posted this, but did you get your Gojane shoes? How were they?

I have a dress that looks REALLY similar to the dress you want and I got it at forever21.. however its more of a stretchy material and less prom-ish. but the way it overlaps and folds is practically identital! Mines was red though, and I got it awhile ago..

I don't know if you live near a T.J. Maxx, but I was there over the weekend and they have several bandage dresses. There was a dead ringer for the BCBG one for $19.99 that I would have bought in a second if only I had somewhere to wear it.
