Fishtail and Mermaid Wedding Dresses are glamorous gowns that are shaped just as their names suggest. They follow the contour of the body before flaring out around the knees. The result is a very sexy and feminine style that highlights curves and turns heads. As such, Mermaid Wedding Dresses are particularly ideal for confident brides and look stunning on hourglass figures. For a subtle take on the fishtail wedding gown, you can also consider a trumpet variation, which features a softer flare that begins higher up the legs. In satin, it’s a Hollywood dream. In lace, the texture detracts from lumps and bumps. Height is also good with this silhouette, so be sure to choose some comfy heels.
