The Confirmation dress is a traditional style of dress that was designed to be worn by girls partaking in the Christian ritual of Confirmation. Confirmation is the public declaration, made by children or young adults who have already been baptized in their infancy, to follow the Christian faith in their adult life. The traditions of this ritual vary between the different branches of the Christian religion, however, the dress has remained similar across all of the denominations.
The traditional design of the dress mimics the design of a bride's wedding dress relating to the historic view of young women in the church. Today, however, wearing the traditional Confirmation dress is not always enforced or expected. Rather, simple white garments, robes, or white dresses that vary from the traditional design are often worn.
