What happened to maxis being the be-all, end-all of tight, body-con dresses? Hervé Léger’s newest bandage maxi dress—also known as the “Signature Essentials Gown“—is the utter antithesis of the traditional, flowy maxi.
Retailing for $1,700, the Hervé Léger gown you can’t move in is giving us flashbacks to the $1,000 swimsuit you couldn’t get wet.
With 60″ of skin-tight, bandage-style material and a thigh-high slit up the backside, the dress has all the elements of a Kim Kardashian-approved Hervé frock, except in floor-length form. Since celebrities already adore Max Azria’s curve-hugging minis, we’re unsure as to why he chose to make a maxi version—that is, unless a pack of couture-loving mummies made a special request, of course.
