You can recognise a real DIRNDL by its dress! Basically, less is more!
That's why you won't find any glittery dirndls, black blouses or transparent aprons here!
Tracht is traditional costume, not carnival!
There are three classic skirt lengths: long, midi, short!
The shortest skirt length ends just above the knee! Anything shorter is not a Dirndl!
The bodice must feel like one size too small when you close it: then it fits!
With every sip of beer it fits even better ...
Off-the-shoulder has nothing to do with traditional costume! A blouse belongs under every sleeveless dirndl!
But it's still allowed to be open-hearted: to show what you've got, leave the first button open and turn down the corners - but please keep the white dirndl bra invisible anyway ...
With the apron, the dirndl communicates with the Buam!
This is how it works:
Bow tied at the front left = single
Bow tied at the front right = taken or married - for the Buam: FINGER AWAY!
Tied front middle bow = former virgin, (modern interpretation rather "open for everything")
Tied back middle bow = widowed or waitress
Try at your own risk!
Please always check the fit of the apron! Messy, slipped, half open = mai, is die bsuffa! (High German: oh, she's drunk!)
This is where opinions differ!
If it's up to the men, they like a heel, but please without chichi ...
A proper Bavarian evening can be long and dancing on beer benches requires stability, so think a bit practically: the spiked heel helps to step on the toes of annoying female competitors, but unfortunately you are also incapacitated faster ...
The classic traditional shoe is coming back into fashion and is worth a try ...
The most beautiful one is the traditional shoe. ..
The most beautiful with them are crocheted traditional stockings, classic in white - they also keep you warm on the way home if there's no taxi again ...
If a girl in a traditional dirndl still feels dressed up, a pair of LEATHER PANTS FOR LADIES can help!
Less feminine, but in times of equality, absolutely acceptable!
With a white or checked traditional shirt and a smart janker, it also looks super-fancy!
No pink traditional hot pants please! ... but you won't get them from us anyway!
