Shop Trumpet Wedding Dresses

In Australia, the trumpet silhouette is just that – trumpet. But across the pond in North America, bridal stores call trumpet wedding dresses also by the name of fit and flare. Locally, in Australia, fit and flare is another name for the a line silhouette.

Don’t worry – it’s not your fault.

Trumpet wedding dresses get their name from the trumpet-like flare at the knees. They are almost like an a-line skirt but lack the contouring of the fit and flare. As you will see, some of our bridal wear are a modern blend of the a-line and trumpet silhouette.

The trumpet cut is often compared with mermaid – definitely try both styles on to see what you like.

PS – our gowns are available in size 4-20.

Trumpet Wedding Dresses FAQs (Answered)

What is a trumpet wedding dress?

The trumpet silhouette is in some ways similar to the mermaid silhouette. This is why it is often compared with the mermaid cut.

The name comes from its trumpet-like flare and because this typically starts mid-thigh level, it offers more movability compared to the knee level of the mermaid.

Trumpet wedding dresses can also take the upper torso appearance of the fit and flare (a-line) silhouette. However, in the case of the trumpet, the flare is more gradual.

Can trumpet gowns be altered?

Yes. Our ready to wear bridal range are designed to undergo some form of alteration to provide you with the perfect fit.

What is the difference between trumpet wedding dress and mermaid wedding dress?

The following illustration by our in-house designer demonstrates the difference between the two styles.

On the left is mermaid (fish-tail) and on the right is a typical trumpet silhouette.
