Dirndls are traditional dresses that have been a part of Alpine culture for centuries. Originating in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, dirndls are a type of dress that typically consists of a blouse, full skirt, and apron, and are typically worn by women.
The blouse of a dirndl is usually white or a solid color, with puffy sleeves and a tight-fitting bodice that accentuates the waist. The skirt of a dirndl is full and often made of patterned fabric, such as floral or gingham, and typically reaches to the knee or below. The apron is worn over the skirt and tied in a bow at the back.
Dirndls are a popular choice for traditional folk costumes at festivals, weddings, and other cultural events in the Alpine region. However, in recent years, dirndls have also become a popular fashion item and are often paired with modern accessories and footwear to create a unique look. Whether you're looking for a traditional dirndl to wear at a cultural event or a stylish and trendy dirndl to add to your wardrobe, dirndls offer a versatile and timeless option that can be worn in a variety of ways.

Measure over the breast for the chest size, waist, measure at the natural waist, just below the rib cage and above the hip bone- think high waisted. No worry on hips, these are pleated skirts. Next, figure out the size on each, which ever gives you the larger size- pick that size. That's typically a good start.
