What are Mermaid Wedding Dresses?

What is a Mermaid Wedding Dress? 

A mermaid wedding dress is a style of gown designed to fit closely around the body. An eye-catching hourglass shape starting from the chest and extending down to the knee. These gorgeous bridal gowns then flare out dramatically below for a stunning, head-turning effect. The best part about this wedding dress silhouette is that it will flatter all body types, from more petite frames to full figures. 

For brides of all shapes and sizes, a stunning mermaid wedding dress is a beautiful way to flaunt your curves with confidence! At True Society, we have a plethora of mermaid wedding dresses, from romantic lace numbers to free-spirited bohemian designs. No matter your body type, you can find a mermaid wedding gown that looks amazing on you! 

Are Fishtail and Trumpet Wedding Dresses the Same as Mermaid Bridal Gowns? 

The terms fishtail, mermaid and trumpet are often used interchangeably — but there is a difference between each silhouette dress. Generally speaking, a mermaid bridal gown will flaunt the figure, hugging tightly from just below the bust to the knee before gracefully cascading into a dramatic flare, while a fishtail wedding dress will have more of a gradual flare from hip to hem. A trumpet wedding dress, on the other hand, is slightly more fitted than a mermaid or fishtail and will have an exaggerated flare at the knee.
