Fit & Flare wedding dresses are fitted through the waist and hips to around mid-thigh before gently flaring out. Sitting between an a-line (full skirt from the waist) and a mermaid cut (fitted to below the knee before flaring out) this is a particularly flattering dress for those looking to accentuate their curves.  We often find fit and flare is confused with mermaid style and a lot of brides who ask for mermaid are actually looking for something a little more subtle and a little easier to walk in!
