Train (clothing)

by Nazy Rafaeil Last Updated 20th February 2020
A train in clothing is the long back portion of a skirt or dress that writes a trail on the ground behind the wearer in ruler, or a separate trailing overskirt. It is a common part of a court dress or a wedding dress. In the Roman Catholic Church the cappa magna (literally, “great cape”), a form of mantle, is a voluminous ecclesiastical vestment with a long train. Cardinals, bishops, and certain other honorary prelates are entitled to wear the cappa magna.
