Mermaid Wedding Dress Silhouette: Top Questions Brides Have

A mermaid silhouette is a bit more complex than some other wedding dress shapes. The trick to knowing which dresses are mermaid style is to note where the dress is fitted and where it’s flared out. We answered some frequently asked questions to help you understand more about this silhouette option.

1) What is a Mermaid Wedding Dress?

A mermaid wedding dress is a type of fitted wedding dress that flares out at or below the knee. This mimics the silhouette of a mermaid with a tail that fans out at the feet.

2) What is the Difference Between a Mermaid and a Trumpet Wedding Gown?

The difference between a mermaid and a trumpet silhouette is where the flare on the skirt begins. Mermaid gowns are usually fitted until the knee or below the knee, then they flare below that. Trumpet gowns usually are fitted until the mid thigh, so they flare out a bit higher than a mermaid style dress.

3) What is the Difference Between a Fit and Flare and a Mermaid Wedding Dress?

Fit and flare dresses are fitted until the legs and then flare out. This is different from an a-line or ball gown where the dress is fitted only until the waist or hips. Mermaid wedding gowns and trumpet wedding gowns are both types of fit and flare wedding dress. 

4) Can You Dance in a Mermaid Dress?

Yes! However, mermaid gowns are fitted until your knees, so you will be a little more restricted than you would be in your normal clothes. Make sure your dress is properly altered to be comfortable enough for movement. Consider a dress made from a stretchy fabric to increase your mobility.

5) What Should You Wear Under a Mermaid Wedding Dress?

You may want to consider wearing shape-wear underneath your mermaid wedding dress. Most of your body will be hugged tightly by fabric in this shape of dress. Depending on the type of fabric of your dress, the parts of your body you want to highlight, and where the seams are on your dress, you may or may not feel more comfortable in shape-wear.

6) Are There Plus Size Mermaid Wedding Dresses?

Definitely. Most of our mermaid dresses are available in a wide range of sizes. If you love showing off your curves, a mermaid dress is a great idea. In fact, since mermaid gowns are typically fitted and structured, they often look more flattering on brides with a full figure. They also hold your shape better than a ballgown or a loose-fitting dress.
