If you’re a confident bride looking for a show-stopping dress, then mermaid is the style for you! The sexiest of all the wedding dress silhouettes, the curve-hugging mermaid is guaranteed to take your groom’s breath away. Also known as a fishtail, a Mermaid Wedding Dresses is closely fitted in the bodice all the way down to the knee, where it dramatically flares out – you’ll find that the skirt on gowns described as ‘trumpet’ or ‘fit-and-flare’ starts higher up, typically from either the mid-hip or thigh. The mermaid shows off your shape the most out of any of these styles, but don’t be put off – it can be a surprisingly flattering silhouette!
If you have a full bust or broad shoulders, then the dramatic skirt of a mermaid dress can balance out your top half, giving you a gorgeous hourglass figure. Although many of our real brides choose a simple, strapless neckline, the mermaid looks amazing with pretty much any neckline or sleeve length. If you’re worried about your arms, you can always choose to wear your mermaid with long lace sleeves – the figure-hugging shape of your dress means that you can look sexy without flashing the flesh!
