If youre a bride that looks to wow and surprise her future husband and wedding guests with her dress, then you should definitely check out our collection of wedding dresses in a trumpet and mermaid silhouettes. These chic bridal gowns highlight the femininity of the bride and show off her curves at the same time.
Even though mermaid and trumpet wedding dresses are often talked about together, they are not two names for the same wedding dress silhouette. Both the trumpet and the mermaid wedding dress silhouettes fall into the category of fit and flare gowns - the only difference between different types of fit and flare silhouettes is where the flare begins. In a mermaid wedding dress, the fabric starts to flare around the brides knees. For a trumpet-style wedding dress, the flare begins around mid-thigh and for a fit and flare gown, the flare starts out at the top of the hip.
If you dream of creating a show stopping bridal look that highlights your sexiness and chic style, a mermaid or trumpet wedding dress is the definite way to go. As for body type and figure, both trumpet and mermaid wedding dress silhouettes are a great choice for shorter brides who want to appear taller in the dress. Additionally, mermaid and trumpet wedding dresses do a great job at accentuating the brides curves, so they look especially beautiful on brides with rectangular, hourglass and inverted triangle body shapes.
