Dress bodice for leisure and celebrations
A traditional costume bodice or corsage is a perfect match for a skirt or a pair of trousers. No matter whether you opt for a traditional costume skirt or a pair of blue jeans, a traditional costume bodice is always a perfect choice for the top part, thus showing once again that traditional costume fashion goes never out of style and blends in perfectly with regular fashion.
Traditional and versatile
The dirndl bodice or dirndl corsage emphasizes a woman's upper body in the most favourable way. Notably its low-cut neckline and its tight fight help form the beautiful decolleté that has become one of the trademarks of German women's "trachten", as traditional costume women clothing is called in German. Centuries of trachten fashion have shown that trends come and go, but that the breathtaking decolleté never goes out of fashion - and so trachten designers have wisely decided to include it in nearly all their new creations, among them those for dirndl corsages and bodices. As the name suggests, a dirndl bodice or corsage is cut much like the upper part of classical dirndl dress. The cut is thus figure-hugging and beautifully emphasizes the wearer's feminine silhouette. Ruches, laces and slightly puffed sleeves are not only reminiscent of the classical dirndl blouses, but also add a girlish touch to the bodice.
The perfect top part for any outfit
Dirndl corsages and bodices are traditionally combined with dirndl skirts, but can also be worn with regular skirts and trousers, such as blue jeans. They are thus another great example for the exceptional flexibility of German traditional costume fashion that has increasingly incorporporated elements of every-day fashion and has a strong crossover appeal. At the Munich Oktoberfest, the world's biggest october party, and other German culture festivals around the world where tracht German is worn, such as the famous Germanfest in Milwaukee in the US, many women can be spotted who combine dirndl corsages and bodices with regular skirts. Whether you choose to combine the corsage or bodice with a traditional costume skirt or your favourite pair of blue jeans, you will soon find out that a dirndl bodice or corsage is the perfect top part for any outfit, as it allows you to make a traditional fashion statement and still be dressed modern and fashionably.
