Mermaid Bra: The Complete Guide For Styles, Options, And Uses

January 15, 2018

Mermaid bra

Alright, Mer-Ladies! Let’s talk about your mermaid bra.

I recognize that your mermaid top is the second most important part of your Mer-sona! Mermaid tail is the first of course. So how do we go about picking the right one?

Well, it depends on what type of mermaid activities you are doing! For example. If you are learning how to swim in your tail just playing in the pool, you don’t want a heavy seashell top. But if you are doing underwater photography, you might! What about parties, parades, or mermaid appearances?

Let’s talk about the different types and uses. Ready to dive in?

Silicone bra


Mermaid Bra

Silicone mermaid bras are the most versatile professional top. Use these silicone top at any mermaid event or performance. Silicone doesn’t sink or float so it’s great for water activities!  The design is actually a regular bra with silicone scales applied to create the illusion.  This way you have a comfortable fit without losing your professional mermaid look.

The amazing thing about silicone is the customize-ability. Color, style, shape, you name it! The downside is they can be expensive! If you are a serious up-and-coming mermaid I suggest looking into this option.


Seashell bra


Seashell Bra

Next, we have the classic Seashell Bra. Search on Etsy and you see plenty to choose from.  This is also a standard base nude bra, with shells and sequins attached with waterproof glue.  These also can be customized or even DIYed! Be aware, the more shells the heavier these puppies can get!

These mermaid shell bras are best for photography, Halloween costumes, and parades (but not for swimming).

This is a great alternative to a heavy seashell or silicone bra. The shape of a shell, the feel of a bra top.  A cheaper option for those who don’t want to break the bank!

It can also have a drawstring to help the ladies for some push-up action. Very versatile for uses, but maybe this mermaid bra is just to feel like a sexy mermaid.

A lot of you have mermaid fabric tails and just looking for a nice top to swim in. A mermaid bathing suit or seashell bikini has the spandex polyester fabric that creates quick drying time.  They are not customize-able but do have the shell shape and decently priced. This can also work as a fun purple mermaid bra so you can feel like Ariel from Disneys the little mermaid!

You might be reading this post looking at tops for your Mermaid Halloween Outfit. Most will come with the Halloween costume but you can always buy separately if the top doesn’t fit like expected. If the plastic shells are intimidating for you (they would be for me) you can always go for a mermaid seashell shirt with clam shells on them. If this doesn’t strike your fancy, don’t worry. There are plenty of costume accessories out there.

Would you dare? I personally haven’t used these, but have seen them used at mermaid parades. You are a brave mermaid to wear these!  I have also seen them at raves (just kidding, I am not cool enough to go to raves)

I bet you didn’t think about this! Belly dancing tops are a great alternative for mermaid bras. They come in a variety of sizes and have plenty of bling needed to get some attention. Great for parades, parties, and mermaid appearances. Not so great for swimming.

A close alternative to the belly dancing top is the standard sequin bra. Not as flashy but still does the trick. These are particularly nice as they have adjustable straps.

Need some alternative options? Ok! I Heart Raves has some alternative mermaid wear for rave costumes. Probably not appropriate for kid parties but raves and mermaid parades would work great! Not recommended for swimming or mermaid photography.

This women’s sequin crop top adds the sparkle you need for parties or costumes. If you looking for a modest approach tank tops would be best. However, crop tops do cover more area of the chest and stomach areas.

A halter top is very similar to the crop top but the straps go right behind the neck. I love the tassels! Totally works for a mermaid outfit.

Last sequin option I promise! Tube tops might have gone out of style in the 90s but might be nice for a mermaid top. Great for parties or parades, you wear your favorite strapless bra under the sequin tube top and you are good to go!


Starfish bra


Starfish Bra

Starfish bras are a thing! Made over a nude bra gives the illusion. Great for any mermaid event, photography, and even swimming!
