I believe they are the same thing

I would describe a trumpet as in-between a mermaid and a fit & flare… fitted then flareout: the flare doesn’t start as low as the mermaid but not as high as the fit & flare either. At least that’s my impression from trying on a few…

I had looked it up before when looking for dresses and it was explained that a fit and flare flares out right after the hips, a trumpet flares right at the thighs and a true mermaid flares down before the knees.

I have a fit an flare, it starts to flare at the top of my thighs.  My friend calls it a trumpet though, and my other friend calls it a mermaid (She doesn’t know any better).  I will tell you this – I tried on some trumpet gowns and couldn’t walk in them.  My dress?  Totally comfortable and easy to get around in!

i think turmpet is not as flare out as mermaid and fit and flare. it has a slimer design.
