Wedding dresses come in all different shapes and although many brides will have a set image in their minds before they actually try anything on, this can change once they’ve seen themselves in them.
One style of dress many brides will be concerned about however, is the mermaid or fishtail dress. Worn by many a celebrity bride including Cheryl Cole, this style scares many because of the way it hugs the figure and puts emphasis on the bride’s curves. This style is often cut on the bias, and is quite figure-hugging until after the knee when it flares out at the back and sides.
Therefore it’s a perfect style for brides who want to show off those curves, but also for slimmer brides who want to add some. We’ve put together our favourite mermaid dresses this season.
