Bridesmaid Dirndl

Classic Maroon Dirndl Dress



There are tons of variations of German Oktoberfest dress for women of every age, body type, and liking. The Oktoberfest dress variation range from traditional to ultra-modern variants; sometimes, a fusion of both is also preferred.  

At Dirndl Online Shop, we believe there is no wrong way to don a Dirndl outfit for Oktoberfest. However, you will want to wear a traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest dress that goes at least to your knees.

When it comes to the dirndl dress length, these can come in different lengths for Oktoberfest, usually going below the knees. 

Traditional Dirndl 

The most traditional length is the long Dirndl, aka langdrindl, which reaches about a little above your ankles.

Midi Dirndl 

The midi or the middle length dirndl will stop cascading anywhere from your shins to just below your knees.

Mini Dirndl 

The short/mini Dirndl will stop a few inches above your knees. 

Depending on the flair and fullness of your skirt, you can choose to add a petticoat or underskirt to enhance volume and movement. 

Most commonly for the Oktoberfest dressing, the Midi Dirndls are the most preferred choice. However, it really doesn’t matter which length you choose as all of these are widely accepted and are common at Oktoberfest. But still, most Bavarians go for a skirt below the knees. 

The longer Dirndl comes into the niche of more formal dirndls, a bit warm, and the length can be a bit restricting while dancing or stepping over the benches in Oktoberfest tents. This is why we always recommend the midi-dirndls to customers so that you can choose to go longer or shorter according to your style preference. 

It would be best to realize the difference between the mini-dirndls and the ultra-short costume type dirndls that some tourists wear at Oktoberfest. So for a traditional Oktoberfest dress and a legit outfit, you might have to shop online.
