A mermaid dress really is just a long, flowing gown that fits snugly to your body with your arms and legs hanging freely. For that reason, a mermaid dress is also known as a fish tail dress. A mermaid dress can be in a number of different lengths. It can start from just above the knee and reach all the way to the floor and sometimes even extend into a full length dress. In this sense, the mermaid style dress does not resemble any sort of standard dress, but instead has an almost “skeleton” like look to it. Also, for this very reason, the mermaid style dress is often called a skeleton dress, too. A mermaid style dress can be a great dress to wear to a formal event, as it will go well with most formal evening gowns.
A mermaid dress can also look amazing on women who are petite. It makes for great casual, and even evening wear. For example, you could wear it to a friend’s party and it would look absolutely stunning. If you wear your mermaid costume for night events such as parties or social gatherings, make sure to bring along a light source so that it shines. A mermaid costume usually comes in either black or red, so if you want to look good under the stars then consider wearing it. Of course, it doesn’t always have to be red and black to look good when you wear a mermaid costume. A mermaid costume made up of white, silver, or a combination of these colors will work well if you don’t mind a bit of contrast.
The mermaid style dress looks amazing when teamed with fishnet stockings and panties. You could also choose a pair of fishnet shorts to go with your mermaid dress. Also, you should make sure that your fishnet stockings or fishnet panties go over your top and not under, because this can enhance your overall look. A fishnet top paired with fishnet bottoms is a fabulous look. Of course, if you want to keep the mermaid look but you have a little more of a petite figure, you could add some fishnet ruffles in the front to your mermaid dress. It might not be as pretty as fishnet panties, but it certainly looks cute.
