Wedding dress designer Vera Wang says most women look great in a mermaid-tail wedding dress.
"A mermaid shape clearly articulates the curves of the body. Ideal for an afternoon or an evening wedding, it also suits many body types; elongating on small women and extremely flattering on full body shapes" Vera says.
For those who don’t want such a clingy dress, Vera suggests opting for an A-line skirt. The shape is universally flattering and always stays in style.
