If you want it more mermaid-y then a seamstress would have to cinch it a bit more for you thru the leg.  I think its more a line than trumpet.

Yeah, the bias on the front makes it look mermaidey…which is awesome, but it’s an A-line masquerading as a mermaid!

As the dress is now, I agree with MASPA, it’s A line and you need and A line slip.  If you WANT a trumpet/mermaid shape, you need to have the dress altered a bit (taken in a bit through the hips to the knees) and then you’d add the mermaid/trumpet slip.

My dress has a similar shape and I am wearing a mermaid slip. It gives it just the right amount of “pouf” at the bottom. The store you bought your dress from should be able to let you try each type of slip on with your dress.

That doesn’t look like the same dress – different neckline and different bottom…. did you get it altered?
