One style of dress that seems to have only gained popularity over the last few decades is the mermaid silhouette. If you would like to find out more about why a mermaid wedding dress would look great on you and the range of similar silhouettes we offer, keep reading.
Why Try One On
If you have never before considered a mermaid gown as your wedding dress of choice, then you probably are not yet aware of how great such a design will look on your body. Just about anyone can pull the style off – whether you have a petite frame or curvy figure. The silhouette first stepped onto the scene in the 1930s when French designer Marcel Rochas decided to redefine the meaning of “hourglass figure”. By the 1950s, “Old Hollywood” starlets were walking carpets in glamorous mermaid ensembles complete with fur shawls and satin gloves.
The silhouette essentially hugs the figure from bust to mid-thigh or knee, where it flares out to resemble a mermaid’s tail. The point at which the dress flares on the knee determines how easily one can move in it. A cinched waist slims the body while accentuating an hourglass figure, which is ideal for any bride who wishes to add an element of seduction to her wedding. If you cannot get enough of this classic, yet contemporary, style, then we have good news; our range features plenty of gowns with this cut. Below we look at ten designs from various brands who take the mermaid wedding dress to a whole new level of timeless creativity.
- Jayda by Colet
The Jayda is one of those remarkable dresses that doesn’t have to try too hard to leave a lasting impression. Made from stretch Mikado satin, the Jayda features a V-neck in front and a lace, illusion back embellished with beads and a 3D floral pattern.
- Lexi by Colet
Who doesn’t love a little sparkle to catch the eye? The Lexi features shimmering, glitter tulle and delicate, floral lace patterns while floating on a soft, cloud-like hem.
- Feather by Modeca
With glimmering beads that twinkle in the right light and a seductive, deep V-neck, the Feather by Modeca indeed turns heads.
- Fabienne by Modeca
For brides who love an ultra-feminine wedding dress, the Fabienne makes use of intricate lace across the top of the dress as well as its charming illusion back. The hem of the skirt flares out with luxuriously soft tulle.
Lace, tulle, and regency organza are brought together with stunning graphic lace and an alluring open back. A scalloped hem on the statement train is one of the highlights of this gorgeous creation.
- Ocampa from White One by St Patrick
A strapless, sweetheart plunging neckline and lace-detailed bodice culminate in the fun and flirty Ocampa – perfect for the bride who loves all eyes on her.

- Lida by Colet
The lovely Lida is a slimming design with sequins that shimmer as the wearer moves. The floral, lace bodice and V-plunge in the front and back draw the eye down to the luxurious details along the gown.
