The type of mermaid flare varies between how far from the hips to the bottom it flares out, but it is this design that brides love because of its ability to bring out and accentuate her curves.

You still have all of the variations of fabrics, colors, and styles within this type of dress. One might prefer lace to make this design more vintage and elegant, while another bride looking to make a regal entrance choose a satin mermaid gown.
