Mermaid Prom Dresses
Mermaid, as the name suggests, describes a evening gown with a shape similar to a mermaid. It is form-fitting at the bodice, and the skirt resembles a mermaid’s tail in silhouette. Although the mermaid skirt can range in size, a flare in the skirt is always a perfect choice for elongating your figure. Mermaid dresses give you a very curvy silhouette with a fitted bodice, and the dramatic hemlines make you look taller.

A mermaid gown hugs the form of the woman wearing the dress and accentuates her beautiful curves. The dress is close-fitting until the knees where the skirt starts to flair out. Depending on the dress, the skirt may or may not be the same color or texture. Many people choose the mermaid gown because of the form-fitting nature and for the different variations of flare in the skirt. Each style of the mermaid dress offers different benefits and will flatter different body types.
Considering your flare-height and flare-width are significant factors in choosing a mermaid gown. If you want to create the illusion of an hourglass body shape, then you will want to choose a dress that flares out just at the hips. If you are looking for a wider or fuller flare, consider a flared mermaid skirt that layers tulle under the dress fabric or alone. A more traditional mermaid looks features a skirt that flares beginning at the knee.
