Also known as a fishtail, a mermaid wedding dress 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! More inspirations at Wedding Ideas Mag

Discover more on the mermaid vs. trumpet silhouette differences below:
What Is A Mermaid Dress?
A mermaid wedding dress is characterized by its fitted style, which hugs close to the bride’s body. Unlike A-line or ball gown wedding dresses, this style doesn’t flare out at the waist. Rather, it flares at or below the knee, creating a mermaid like “tail” that’s utterly elegant. This “tail” typically features some sort of alluring detail, such as ruffles, lace or beading. It also can feature any length of train.
What is a Trumpet Dress?
A trumpet wedding dress fits similar to a mermaid gown. It hugs the body in all the right places and gradually flares outward.
The key difference between mermaid and trumpet wedding gowns is where the flare begins, which in the case of the trumpet style is mid-thigh. This creates a trumpet-like silhouette and may make it a bit easier for the bride to move around vs a mermaid gown.
Another key, though slightly less obvious, difference between the two styles is the size of the flare. Mermaid wedding dresses have a more dramatic flare, while trumpet style gowns flare out more gradually. Discover more at Moonlight Bridal

If you’ve got an apple or pear shaped body, this dress is not the proper style for your body type. This style will accent disproportionate hips even more. This dress is best suited to those with an hourglass shape.
Inaccurate measurements will spell the death knell of this dress. If you’re considering a mermaid dress, have your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. Don’t do it yourself.
Don’t plan on wearing undergarments that may show any visible line when wearing the mermaid dress. Seamless undergarments are a must! Continue reading at Taaz
