Among the basic models of dresses «mermaid» («fish» or year) is considered to be the most sensual and feminine. Wedding outfits are no exception. For many years, mermaid wedding dresses have taken pride of place in designer collections. The top of this outfit allows any variation: from modestly closed to boldly sexy. However seductive silhouette «mermaids» has a downside - this style is not suitable for every bride. Therefore, so that the choice of such a dress does not disappoint, you need to consider several points.
Who needs a mermaid dress??
Model «mermaid» implies the most tight-fitting silhouette from the top to the middle of the hips (or to the knees). The lower part of the skirt expands, creating the image of a mermaid (or fish) tail. Feature of the style - in a clear, sculptural outline of lines «chest-waist-hips», which makes the mermaid model so seductive. However, if your options are far from «90-60-90», don't despair. The style of the fish has several secrets, so even non-standard girls can wear it.
For tall slender brides, this model of outfit is suitable in any form without restrictions. If the growth is small, but the body proportions are correct, the mermaid model will look great (just do not refuse high heels). Visually add centimeters to an open or transparent neckline. A little lush train will not suit small girls - a massive canvas will only emphasize short stature.
A small fullness will not be an obstacle to choosing a mermaid style. The main thing is that the figure should be proportional, and the flaws in the form of small folds will perfectly hide high-quality corrective underwear. A lining made of stiff stretch fabric also aligns the figure, but this is an extreme measure, as moving in such a dress is not very convenient, and in the summer it will also be hot. Girls with forms should abandon the lush (multi-layered or with ruffles) lower part of the skirt, preferring a smooth one-piece year.
If the bust is small, you need to choose a model with an emphasis on the upper part: frills, a complicated cut, draperies or a lace neckline will distract attention. But thin straps look perfect just on girls with small breasts, recreating the image of Kate Moss that does not go out of fashion. For owners of magnificent forms you need a high-quality corset, and a neckline in the form of a heart will advantageously and accurately highlight the advantages of a figure.
With an implicit waist, a bright belt will help the bride to emphasize the silhouette (different material, texture or color from the dress). Lush hips compensate for the V-neckline, oblique cut or diagonal skirt drapes. Too wide, massive shoulders will hide the outfit with a fluffy skirt from the middle of the thigh. For wedding dresses, the mermaid is not acceptable basque (frill on the waist line) or a cut on the hip - this will not only not hide the flaws of the figure, but also ruin the outfit.

Although the style of the fish has remained in demand for many years, details and decoration change every season. In 2016, the fashionable emphasis shifts to lace. In wedding dresses, the mermaid will be relevant total lace dominance - from the corset to the edge of the skirt. If your full outfit doesn't suit you, leave a lace accent on your shoulders and shoulder blades. Another innovation is long sleeves (or at least?), Especially if they are also made of lace.
Fashion also affected the color scheme. The prevailing white moved delicate pastel shades: pink, blue, mint, gray and beige. Embroidery with gold, silver, crystals and black trim are also in trend. You can find a suitable finish and decide on the details by looking at the photo of fish wedding dresses in the gallery below.
The delicate lace, like the noble satin, ideally suits the laconic style of the mermaid, repeating the curves of the figure without familiarity. It can be used to decorate a wedding dress or to completely sew a bride's outfit from this delicate material. It is better not to combine lace with a large abundance of beads or sequins - the image will turn out to be overloaded. Otherwise, there are no restrictions.
With a loop
The train matches perfectly with the style of the fish. He gives the bride elegance and grandeur. Do not forget that the train creates certain inconvenience when walking. Attach it to the hand does not work (as in dresses of direct style), with a skirt a year this trick does not look good. Do not discard options with a detachable train - wedding transformer models are back in fashion. To refuse a long train is for girls of short stature, otherwise such «tail» make the girl figure grotesque.
In the upcoming season, wedding dresses with long lace sleeves are especially relevant. Sleeves of any length and shape are suitable for the style of the fish: narrow to the hands, three quarters or to the elbow, short-fitting with a flashlight, flared, gathered at the cuffs, raglan or with cuts. If the shape of the shoulders and arms is beautiful, choose a model with drapery instead of sleeves. For an outfit with a dense smooth fabric, sleeves are allowed both from a similar material and transparent.
With open back
A good choice would be a mermaid style with an open back, if the season allows, and the bride is courageous and confident. A naked back adds sexuality no less than a high cut or deep neckline. An important condition for wearing such a model is good posture and clean skin. If you don’t want to bare your arms, then a wedding dress with sleeves and a neckline is suitable.
On the straps
A wedding in the warm season is a good occasion to wear a dress on the straps. This style is lightweight, carefree and romantic. Thin straps are suitable for brides who want to look sexy, but are embarrassed to wear a bustier (bodice without straps). To abandon the strapless stands for girls with a large bust or massive shoulders (or give preference to models with wide straps or draping).
How to choose a veil for a mermaid dress?
A veil is a significant wedding accessory, but it should not draw attention to itself from the bride's dress. Due to their style, a long multilayer headdress and a light short veil will suit mermaid wedding dresses. If you use lace, embroidery or ruffles in your outfit, you should buy a veil with the same finish. The main thing here is a sense of proportion. If the veil decor is immoderate, this will overload the image of the bride. The more magnificent, richer the wedding dress, the more modest the veil should be. If you choose the most concise model, a beautifully decorated veil will open and complement the image.

Finding a finished model of the right cut and finish in a wedding boutique is not always possible. The best option is to study the photo of the mermaid’s wedding dresses of the new season and order a favorite option in the studio. But buying an already sewn wedding outfit from the catalog without fitting is a big risk. Sewn according to the averaged patterns, such a dress will most likely have to be customized according to the figure, and in the worst case - to look for a replacement.
