Trumpet and Mermaid wedding gowns are in high demand for modern brides. Brides who want to show off their curves should definitely consider one of these styles to walk down the aisle in. What's the difference? Although Trumpet and Mermaid gowns are very similar, there is a difference between the two styles.
Mermaid gowns are defined by a slim, tapered, curve-hugging skirt that follows the line of the hips and thighs and flares out below the knee, creating a mermaid silhouette. Trumpet gowns fit closely to the body until mid-hip, then widens gradually to the hem, resembling the mouth of a trumpet.
The trumpet silhouette is a style of gown that features a gradually-flared skirt and a close-fitting bodice that skims the lines of the body, through the hips. Most trumpet wedding gowns begin to flare at about mid-thigh, and can be thought of as a sort of hybrid between the mermaid silhouette and the modified A-line silhouette.
Just as the name suggests, the gradual flare of a trumpet dress' skirt resembles the shape of the musical instrument trumpet's bell.
A trumpet dress,while similar to mermaid gowns, is a more understated silhouette, as the flare of the skirt of trumpet wedding gowns is much more gradual than that of the dramatically-flared mermaid's skirt.
In a nutshell: Mermaids flare at or below the knee, and trumpet flare at about mid-hip.
A great example of the silhouette seen in mermaids wedding gowns is Sophia Tolli Y11405, and a great example of the silhouette seen in trumpet wedding gowns is Sophia Tolli Y11410.
Brides who truly want to show off their figures should consider a Mermaid gown. If you still want to show off your figure, but want a little more wiggle room, then trumpet is the perfect gown for you.
The mermaid and trumpet style will both show your perfect figure. Choose a mermaid or trumpet wedding dress in biydress and be a princess on your own day.
