What is a "veil"?


A veil is a sheer piece of cloth or netting that is worn by women to cover their faces or head for religious, cultural, or fashion purposes. Veils are typically made from lightweight and delicate materials such as tulle, silk, or lace, and can range in length from a small face veil to a full-length bridal veil that trails behind the bride. They are often worn during weddings, religious ceremonies, or formal events and come in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes to complement the wearer's outfit. Veils have a long and varied history, and their use can be traced back to ancient cultures, where they were worn as a sign of respect, and modesty, or as a status symbol.
