Dresses have been traditionally worn in the Middle Ages in England, and they are still widely used today, especially in weddings. These dresses are typically long gowns with a bodice and skirt, which usually have a neckline. A dress is generally a long garment traditionally worn by younger women or young women consisting of a short skirt and an accompanying bodice with a full skirt covering the waist. A formal dress is a one-piece garment consisting of either a skirt or a dress, which is draped over the shoulders and then hangs below the knees. It can be formal, casual or informal. The word “dress” derives from a Latin term meaning “wear” and it means a formal garment that is worn for purposes of fashion or personal decoration.
The most popular style of dress among women today is the wedding dress. The bride wears a white dress, which contains a long train. This type of dress goes well with a short sleeve top, a dressy pants and a veil. A formal dress is usually a long flowing gown, with or without sleeves, skirts that fall below the knee, a bodice and skirt. It is typically accompanied by a full skirt. For the bridesmaid, the dress is usually a little shorter, usually no more than shoulder length. The dress is usually full length with sleeves, often showing a little skin.
There are some traditional dresses which are not suitable for women who are pregnant. This is because they usually include a lot of drapery and other materials that may restrict a pregnant woman from carrying out the typical daily activities, such as going to work. However, some dresses which are considered to be maternity wear do not restrict pregnant women from working.
