The mermaid style wedding dresses start out at the top with a tapered waist and then tighten around the bride’s waist, hugging the body and flaring out at the bottom. Very much so like an ocean mythical mermaid, hence the fitting name for this fitting dress. The type of mermaid flare varies between how far from the hips to the bottom it flares out, but it is this design that brides love because of its ability to bring out and accentuate her curves.
Brides should first consider where their wedding dresses begin to flare out. Brides who want to accentuate or create the illusion of an hourglass body shape will want to choose a dress that begins to flare just at the hips. This height will also hide problem thighs and looks the most like a typical A-line wedding gown. Mermaid style wedding dresses flares can be made of the same material as the rest of the wedding dresses, or they can be formed out of a different material. Often, slimmer flares are made of the dress material like silk or lace. Layers of tulle stacked upon each other will give the flare a more traditional, princess, or ballerina look. Many mermaid style wedding dresses will also feature ruffles, which will move more fluidly and can be both feminine and edgy. Some mermaid style wedding dresses will even have a flare made up of or covered with fabric flowers or roses, which gives the dress a unique, high fashion look.
Though mermaid style wedding dresses with sweetheart neckline are really stunning, but not every body shape can control. If you have a pear body shape that hips is wider than the shoulders, the mermaid will destroy the balance. Also the apple shaped cannot choose the style because the mermaid will enlarge your widest part. So please select your wedding dresses carefully, the right one is the best one.
