50 Dazzling Mermaid and Fit-and-Flare Gowns

The mermaid silhouette tightly hugs the torso, then flares out from the knee or just below it, creating a glamorous, dramatic look. Unapologetically sexy, it’s perfect for confident brides who want to show off their shape.

A trumpet or fit-and-flare is a fitted gown that flares out at the knee; it’s similar to the mermaid silhouette but more subtle. It’s an especially flattering choice for petite brides or those who want to add curves.
