The muumuu or muʻumuʻu is a loose dress of Hawaiian origin that hangs from the shoulder. Like the Aloha shirt, muumuu exports are often brilliantly colored with floral patterns of generic Polynesian motifs. Muumuu for local Hawaiian residents are more subdued in tone. Muumuu are as widely worn at work as the Hawaiian shirt, and most popularly worn as a uniform by women working in the hotel industry. Muumuu are also popular as maternity gowns because they do not restrict the waist.
