bandage dress

bandage dress

n.
A formfitting dress made of a stretchy material and having the appearance of multiple strips of cloth wrapped around the wearer's body.

[First used in the mid-1980s to describe such dresses when they were introduced by Hervé L. Leroux (born 1957), French fashion designer, perhaps originally as a translation of French robe à bandes : robe, dress + à, with + bandes, plural of bande, strip, band.]
