Mermaid style dresses are one of my most favorite silhouettes. There's just this elegance to it I can't explain. It's perfect because it's fitting--it hugs your body and accentuates your curves--and dramatic as well. Just to differentiate mermaid style dresses from other similar ones, mermaid style dresses are fitted above and flare out from the knee. A similar dress is the trumpet dress, which flares out from the thigh, and a fit and flare dress, which flares out from the hip. Dressv.com, one of my trusted brands when it comes to gown design and affordability also has this particular style.
Mermaid style dresses are perfect for brides. All eyes would be on the bride come her wedding day, and what dress would be more fitting (pun intended) than a form-fitting mermaid dress? Here are some of my favorite sexy mermaid style dresses from Dressv.com. The first one above is perfect for an elegant bride. It has lace appliques, which adds to the overall look. The best part is, it retails for less than $200 (around Php 8000) which is really cheap for a wedding dress that doesn't look $200!
If I were to get married, I'd probably go for this dress! I love how simple it is. It's made from organza satin. I don't know if I could pull this off though! I've got really huge hips that would get emphasized by the close cut. Girls with hourglass body shapes are the best bet to pull off mermaid dresses!
This is another sexy mermaid style dress from dressv I love. It's actually a strapless but it comes with a cover up which you could wear to the ceremony if your wedding's a conservative one, or to the reception if you feel chilly! I love this dress cause it's very timeless. It reminds me of a 1950's dress (sort of inspired by Grace Kelly!); something fit for royalty!
This last dress drew me in because of its subtle sexiness! I imagine someone like Sofia Vergara wearing this. It's very glamorous, very Hollywood!
There are much much more dresses to pick from at dressv.com! Like I've mentioned in previous posts, they ship worldwide, they customize dresses according to your specifications (color, fabric, size, etc) and they're really affordable!
