Well, this is a great way to alienate customers!
Patrick Couderc, the UK managing director of the Herve Leger by Max Azria brand famous for its figure-clutching bandage dresses, has recently come out and said that the tight frocks shouldn't be worn by "voluptuous women" who have "very prominent hips or a very flat chest."
Women with voluptuous bodies are the ones making these dresses look good, sir!
Open your eyes!!!
He also advises that "fat" and "older" women refrain from wearing the style as well:

Herve Leger is doing everything he can to remix the bandage dress and keep it alive.
At the 2012 CMT Music Awards, Kellie Pickler wowed in her Herve Leger for Max Azria Spring 2012 dress. The plunging neckline was seksi, but not over the top. She paired the fitted dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
We love that she kept her makeup and hair looking natural, because the dress really does speak for itself - you know, with its fringes and all.
We love this modern twist to an old '20s classic!

Oh my goth!
It looks like Katy Perry is going to the dark side, for one night anyway.
The songstress arrived at the NARM Music Biz Awards dinner party on Thursday looking like a gothic princess in a black bandage dress with sheer panels, studded Christian Louboutin heels, dark makeup and wine-colored lips.
Our only complaint is Katy's visible bra straps, but with those tatas we know she needs the extra support.

Bandage dresses aren't for everyone. Case in point: Kelly Clarkson at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show.
The American Idol alum performed in Las Vegas on Monday wearing a very unforgiving Herve Leger bandage dress.
We know Kelly isn't afraid of showing off her curves, but there's a right and a wrong way to do it. In this case, she got it all wrong.
