This Made by Niki set is perfect for the mermaid with an advanced sense of fashion and an unlimited budget. Seriously, what could be better that all of those delicate, undulating bits of fringe that evoke a mermaid’s watery habitat? Nothing, I say, truly nothing.

This She & Reverie bralet since I first say a picture of it on Tumblr about 3 years ago. I can’t believe that I haven’t featured it before! This bralet is perfect because it evokes the traditional mermaid scallop shell bra (especially if paired with turquoise knickers) but also seems a bit more soft, wearable and fashion-forward for the land-locked mermaid.

If there was a more mermaid-y corset than this piece from Angela Friedman’s spring-summer 2014 collection, I don’t know what it would be! I love how the black lace appliqué gives it a spookylook reminiscent of seaweed — but also happily pairing well with a black pencil skirt if you take the night off from your mermaid duties.

I’m not going to lie– I hated this Agent Provocateur set when I first saw it! But in the context of a tropical coral reef, it seems perfect for a mermaid who likes to look at home among brightly colored, exotic fish. Ideally to be worn with a crown of sea anemones.

The print on this Ewa Michalak bra immediately made me think of the dizzying light effects of looking into the clear ocean water of the Caribbean. The pairing with the paler blue lace really cements the look of softly crashing waves, which I’m sure is something that all mermaids like to imitate to blend in to their surroundings.

Mimi Holliday always has delicious colors, so it should be no surprise that I spotted ‘Gooseberry’ as a perfect addition to this collection. I think the eyelash lace overlay is the perfect touch!

Karolina Laskowska’s Sayuri Kimono Silk bra is another one that recalls sea shells in it’s color and texture. I love the sheen of the silk because I think that it really emphasizes the varying shades and stripes in the fabric that really do recall organic coral formations.

This ‘Pixie’ bodysuit by eLai has a bit of a swimsuit look to it, but would also look amazing layered under a skirt. I think the touch of orange binding along the edge really cements its aquatic feel.
