    Yes, that’s a trumpet. A mermaid is tighter around the knees, I think.

    I’d say trumpet or fit and flare which I guess are basically the same thing.

    Trumpet, it doesn’t look tight enough on the bottom to be a mermaid.

    I actually wouldn’t say it was either.  It kind of looks more A line to me.

    I’d say A-line.  It doesn’t look tight enough to be either trumpet or mermaid.

    Trumpet! I think a fit and flare starts to flare out after the hips, a trumpet at the thighs and a mermaid at the knees

    From that picture and judging that it needs to be taken in, I think maybe trumpet. PS, trumpet and fit and flare are different.

    Fit and flare hugs the hips and then flares.

    Trumpet hugs to between midthigh and the knee and flare.

    Mermaid flares at the knee or below.
