 The Dirndl Etiquette

How do I have to tie the Bow of my Dirndl? How long is it meant to be? Which design will be popular on this Year’s Oktoberfest? Around the Dirndl evolve a lot of Questions. We want to provide you with answers to the most relevant questions about the Dirndl, in order to perfectly prepare you for the upcoming Trachtenseason and to aid you find your Sportalm Dirndl.

Choosing the adequate Skirt Length

The Dirndl is available in various Skirt lengths, however, when choosing the right Skirt length you should take into account the Occasion on which you will be wearing it. At weddings or other elegant Festivities the Maxi-Dirndl is the perfect fit. The skirt covers three quarters of the legs and bestows the woman with an elegant silhouette. In order to stretch the figure, it is recommended to wear high heels, as it further refines the look of the dirndl. The Midi Dirndl can be worn to every occasion, at weddings or at the Octoberfest. It caresses the knee and covers the thighs, through which it perfectly fits on to the figure of the woman. Both high heels and ballerinas are a good choice to go with the Midi Dirndl, as it further stretches the legs of the carrier. In contrast to the Maxi and Midi Dirndl, the Mini Dirndl, should be worn at less formal and elegant gatherings. Through its freedom of leg movement, it is ideal for events where dancing is the main focus.  The Mini Dirndl very slightly covers the knees and therefore puts the woman’s legs at the centre of attention. At this length, you can also choose to combine your look with ankle boots, as it gives your outfit a cool touch.

The Dirndl-Bow

There is often much confusion around this topic. Does the bow have to be tied in the middle, right or left? Or even on the back? With the position of the loop, you express your relationship status. For example, a dirndl bow tied on the left means the wearer is single and a bow tied on the right means the wearer is in a relationship or married. Traditionally, wearing the dirndl bow at the front means that the wearer is a virgin. Today, however, it is rather seen as undecided. A dirndl bow tied at the back indicates widowhood.

About the Origin of the Dirndl

Originally, the dirndl was a servant's uniform and therefore more likely to be worn as work clothing. Maids wore it in Bavaria and Austria to do their work. The design was kept very simple and the dirndl aprons were often made of bed linen, as maids had no money for expensive fabrics. In the 1930s the dirndl finally conquered the hearts of urban women. They discovered the design of the dirndl on their trips and holidays in the country and adopted the looks of the maids. However, the ladies' dirndls were anything but simple. Now, the dirndls, as well as the dirndl aprons, were made out of high-quality fabrics, decorated with noble and eye-catching details. Due to the great popularity of the Oktoberfest, the Dirndl is now known worldwide and is considered a typical symbol of Austrian and German traditional costume. Then and now the designs of the Dirndl differ from region to region, so that many regions have special distinguishing features. But generally speaking: Wear the dirndl you feel most comfortable in and the one you like the best.
