The right bra to go with your dirndl
No other piece of clothing accentuates the feminine figure like a dirndl. And a dirndl is an absolute must at big occasions like the Wiesn, Wasen and Bergkirchweih! However, to perfect the traditional look, you need more than a dirndl, blouse, apron and shoes: only with the right bra is your outfit for the next folk festival complete!

Why do you need a dirndl bra and how is it different from a normal bra?
Nowadays, there are lots of different dirndl models on the market: with a V-neckline, high neckline, or a wide, low neckline. However, the classic dirndl is famous for conjuring a spectacular decolletage. But the secret to sexy cleavage is not the dirndl itself, but what’s underneath it: the right bra.
The wide, low-cut neckline of the dirndl means the bra must fulfil certain requirements. Since a lot of the breast is visible, the cups of the bra are low-cut to ensure they stay invisible. That presents the first difficulty: classic push-up bras have a fuller cup that enclose the breast. However, this kind of bra would be visible under a dirndl blouse. For this reason, dirndl bras usually have a three-quarter or half cup and the straps are positioned far to the sides, to keep them from showing under the wide neckline of a dirndl blouse. In other words, a dirndl bra is usually similar in style to a balconette bra.
Due to these special requirements, it’s clear why no other bra goes with a dirndl as well as an actual dirndl bra. Regular bras are usually visible underneath a dirndl in one place or another, since the shape is not adapted to the dirndl’s particular requirements.
