Why the name Mermaid style dress?
This special style gets its name from being characteristically flared out at the bottom, just like the mermaid fin. The mermaid dress is designed to accentuate the natural gifts and curves that you have, hugging your chest, showing your slim waist and full hips. The flared-out bottom shows your hourglass body perfectly and elegantly.
Despite being a special design, mermaid dress can be made of any fabric specially if it is a thin fabric like satin, silk or taffeta. The thin fabric is essential to show the soft, flowing ruffle that extends starting from your knee till the floor.
If it is made from a fabric that is thick, you will miss the natural soft look of the fishtail section, which will be naturally stiffer and less flexible with your movement. But in any case, be sure that this dress will gives you a glamorous, dramatic look.
