Mermaid dresses got their name for their silhouette and fishtail design of the skirt. Classic trumpet style is meant to cling, contouring your hips and flaring at the knees. Strapless wedding dress with sweetheart neckline, styled with a simple chapel length veil, is the go-to choice of glamourous brides inspired by red carpet looks. If you aim for more dramatic look, with ruffles of organza or tulle, combined with sparkly details you can be sure all eyes will be on you.
Beyond the classic strapless style, Madame Bridal offers wedding gowns with long sleeves and straps, even the stunning off the shoulder designs. Colors range from classic white, to ivory and champagne, with gold or silver details. The hip-hugging silhouette is a tried-and-true style that makes its way down the runway on bridal fashion shows every year. So you can count on finding new and fresh designs as well as gorgeous classic styles here.
Vintage lace wedding dress, fitted through the bodice and hips, exudes femininity and grace. Full trumpet skirt and train, trimmed with sequined scalloped lace and dusted with appliques is completely timeless yet strikingly modern. Mermaid dresses look gorgeous and sexy on both plus size and petite girls, but not on every body type. If you have narrow hips, and tend to carry your weight in the top half of your body, this silhouette is probably not the best option for you. It will only accentuate the disproportion of your hips. However if you are a curvy girl a trumpet bridal gown will hug and highlight your every gorgeous curve, and make you look absolutely breathtaking.
Petite brides are told very often that they cannot wear a trumpet gown, but that is absolutely not true. Sometimes all you have to do is raise the skirt starting point just a bit higher in order to create length in the torso and legs.For maximum elongation, the dress should be fitted through your hips and flare out just above the knee and not below.
If you consider wearing a trumpet style wedding you need to have your measurements carefully, preferably by a professional seamstress, because inaccurate measurements will ruin your look. Keep in mind that you will probably need to have the dress altered a little bit if you want it to fit like a glove. During the alterations process the dress becomes your own, and there is nothing that will make you look and feel more beautiful than a dress that was made for you.
