What does Dirndl mean?

A Dirndl is a Bavarian traditional dress

A dirndl is best known for its oktoberfests, and is a garment worn in southern Germany. The Dirndl is also worn in that region (South Germany and Austria) during other festivities, and in some areas also on normal days. The Dirndl emphasizes the feminine shape as the waist is constricted, the bosom seems more dense. If the drag on the right side is tied, the carrier indicates that she is married, engaged, or unavailable. The singles wear the drag on the left. A drag on the front indicates that the bearer is still a virgin, and a trail at the back is worn by a widow. Dirndl is another Austrian word for young woman.
