Wedding dresses, wedding gowns, we use them interchangeably. What is a gown? It is a long dress worn on formal occasions. Where did its name come from?

The Origin Of Gown And Dress

The word ‘gown’ comes from the old French word meaning a robe or coat. And in the 1300s a gown was a loose outer garment such as a robe. By the 18th century the word was commonly used for what we now call a dress. So gown became relegated to the kind of long, flowing dress used for special occasions.

Then of course there are other kinds of gown that are more like the original use of the word. Academics wear gowns. Graduates wear gowns at the graduation ceremony. And we talk of ‘town and gown’ meaning the ordinary populace and the provosts, professors, and students at a university.

We also have hospital gowns, but no one wants to be reminded of those.

A dress on the other hand was in the 16th century any clothing at all depending upon who was wearing it. For a woman is was something with a skirt and a waist, with the idea that it was more than plain clothing. Rather, it was something to beautify the body.
