What do you call the bottom part of a female ballroom dress? I am referring to the part that extends out of the waist and may touch the floor.

1 Answer 1


It's the skirt of the dress, even though a separate garment covering the same area is also called a skirt.

From Wikipedia

A skirt is the lower part of a dress/gown or a separate outer garment that covers a person from the waist downwards.
