The Oktoberfest revelers have been accused of over-sexualizing the annual event and using it as an opportunity to wear & # 39; dresses porn.

A crime writer based in Munich asked why so many people felt the need to imitate Bavarian traditional clothing badly.

In an interview in the newspaper this week, he said: & # 39; With young women often looks like porn dresses, short and low cut and cheap material.

"It has nothing to do with identity."

The number of people wearing traditional Bavarian attire at the world's most popular beer festival, which begins on September 22, has increased over the past 10 years.

Franz Thalhammer, 70, former chairman of the folk group Georgenstoana Baierbrunn of Munich, said it was a shame that the costumes were denigrated.

He said: A dirndl is something nice, it can make almost anyone pretty. But some of the dresses you see these days are crazy.

You're going in a tent and it's full of paralyzed Australians and Italians and they've saved € 250 [£224] for a complete Bavarian set and think that they are Bavarian. It's like I was walking half naked and saying I'm Australian.

British costume shops said that customers now want "sexier" items compared to traditional costumes.

Ulku Stephanides, who has run the Carnival Store in Kensington, west London, said: "For women, we have dresses up to the knee or shorter than the knee, people used to be of normal size. Models wear these suits, the girls come to the store and say: "I want to look sexy".

Stephanides, 55, said that while the locals preferred knee-length skirts, the cut of the dress around the neckline was more exposed.

She said: & # 39; They have their tits out & # 39;

Although that trend was not limited to Germany, as he told the Times, his British clients also wanted to express themselves.

Ms. Stephanides added: "That's the new generation. Last week I was serving a girl; She was like the Queen of Sheba. She was buying a costume for £ 20 and taking pictures to show her friends on Instagram. She said: "I do not look sexy enough, I have to go to Germany, to Oktoberfest."

Around 6.2 million people attended the Oktoberfest last year, where they drank 7.5 million glasses of one-liter beer. The British were among the ten best visitors of the annual festival, which has been running since the 19th century in.
