For a bride who wants to show off her curves, there's no better wedding dress silhouette than the mermaid! This sexy style is formfitting throughout the body and hips, flaring dramatically at the knee – just like a mermaid's tail! The gown style beautifully accentuates a woman's body; in fact, it works best for women with hourglass shapes. If you've got it, flaunt it!
Mermaid styles have become quite diverse in recent years, with a variety of fabrics, necklines, and sleeves offered in many designers' collections. You'll discover structured, tailored styles, as well as draped, flowing silhouettes. You can even find mermaid wedding dresses with skirts that are a bit more (or less) dramatic, allowing you to select a gown that perfectly suits your sense of style and comfort. Check out the slideshow above to see some gorgeous mermaid gowns that complement brides of all shapes and tastes!
