A staple in the bridal fashion world, wedding dresses with flared skirts top our lists – not to mention, they look amazing on every body type! From mermaid wedding dresses to fit-and-flare gowns to trumpet styles, there is a flared wedding dress for every bride and the style she is in search of.
If you’re a confident bride looking for a show-stopping dress, then mermaid is the style for you! The sexiest of all the wedding dress silhouettes, the curve-hugging mermaid is guaranteed to take your groom’s breath away.
The difference between a mermaid wedding dress and a trumpet wedding dress is all about where the flare of the skirt starts: Mermaid wedding dresses start to flare just below the knee while trumpet wedding dresses flare above the knee.
Slim throughout the body, the skirt of a trumpet wedding dress flares in a dramatic fashion at the lower thigh, right above the bride’s knee. Mermaid silhouettes start to flare just below the knee, making for an even more dramatic silhouette. A long and lean bodice is tight through the bride’s midsection and legs and ends with a flared skirt just below the knees.
Also known as a fishtail, a lace wedding dress is closely fitted in the bodice all the way down to the knee, where it dramatically flares out – you’ll find that the skirt on gowns described as ‘trumpet’ or ‘fit-and-flare’ starts higher up, typically from either the mid-hip or thigh. The mermaid shows off your shape the most out of any of these styles, but don’t be put off – it can be a surprisingly flattering silhouette!
or a more soft and romantic style, we can’t get enough of Stella York style 6314. Proving to be a head-turning design, this fit-and-flare wedding dress with an illusion back will make a statement as you walk down the aisle, and during every moment after! A curve-hugging lace bodice is accented beautifully with a sheer, illusion back and a dramatic tulle train that flares out just below the hips.
