The fit and flare or mermaid wedding dress is very popular these days and they come in an array of fabrics and embellishments from beaded to the elegance of smooth satin. Here at Breathless Bridal in Ridgetop Tennessee, we have a wide variety of fit and flare or mermaid gowns to choose from. When it comes to the fit and flare wedding dress it is all about proportion!
Whether you are curvy or enjoy a straighter silhouette, the fit and flare or mermaid gown can work for many brides.
Ideally a ten inch difference between waist, bust and hips will fill out the fit and flare or mermaid bridal gown. Few of us have exact proportions so here at Breathless Bridal in Ridgetop Tennessee, we know some tricks to help magnify the curves.
If your figure is fuller in the hips with a smaller bust line, adding capped or short sleeves will draw the eye to the bust and balance out the figure.
An off the shoulder strap can easily be added to a strapless fit and flare to accentuate your curves.
If you are more endowed in the bust with smaller hips, long sleeves will help draw the eye to the hips for the illusion of a fuller figure and minimize the bust area. A low placed belt may also add to the hip area. Fuller busted girls can wear sleeveless, over the shoulder straps, three quarter or longer sleeves. You will want to stay away from short or capped sleeves as these will magnify the bust line.
Fit and flare or mermaid gowns are elegant and sexy however the perfect gown for you is the one you feel beautiful in. We are glad to help you find the gown to make you Breathless!
