Mermaid Style Wedding Dresses Provide Figure-Hugging Glamour

Mermaid style wedding dresses offer a beautiful blend of designs.  They combine the figure-hugging fit of a sheath style to the knees, from where they flares out to a fuller skirt, giving an elongated fishtail look.

They give you a very glamorous silhouette: they're sleek and sexy and best suit an hourglass or slender figure.  A mermaid wedding dress hides nothing, so full confidence, is a must to pull it off.

Women who want a sense of contemporary edgy fashion to their wedding appearance go for this style. 

Choose softer fabrics, looser fitting to combine with an air of traditional romance.

Petite brides who desire that bit of flare but can’t get away with a ball gown style can not only get away with this, they will look stunning as well as taller.

The most wonderful thing about mermaid style wedding dresses is that they can be perfect for understated weddings and brides, beach weddings or full regalia for bigger ceremonies.

Mermaid Style Wedding Dresses

Comfort also needs to be considered here: just in case you want to run along the beach as part of your celebrations, a very fitted mermaid dress might not be the way to go.

Consider underwear for this design too, as it’s fitting means you could have lines on show with the wrong garments.

It is up to you to play around with the design – from belts to ruffles, gloves to necklines. It really does depend on your taste and wedding. Fabrics can pave the way for dramatic structured gowns or flowing, softer dresses.
