Ariel/Princess Belle Mermaid Costume
This is a beautifully inspired Ariel/Princess Belle (Beauty & The Beast) mermaid costume.
AmzBarley Mermaid Costume
This is Mermazing one piece mermaid costume that comes with a golden sea shelled necklace, a crown, and a wand.
It should fit quite well on all sizes as the back and skirt are made from a stretch polyester material to accommodate all sizes. However, I would recommend from reading through some of the reviews for this mermaid costume that you get the size up as it is a bit on the generous side.
This is a great costume for any young wannabe mermaid aged from 2 – 3 years, 3 – 4 years, 5 – 6 years, 7 – 8 years, 9 – 10 years & 11 – 12 years. I would recommend to hand wash due to the glittery stickers on the fishtail.
An ideal mermaid gift for a wide range of ages and great for a mermaid-themed birthday party.
The dress is priced well on amazon and currently at 4.3 stars from 655 reviews. One of these reviews state:
Disney Princesses Ariel Mermaid Costume
This official Disney Mermaid costume has been inspired by the little mermaid and Ariel herself. It’s beautifully decorated with characters such as Flounder, Sebastian, and sorry to say, Ursula.
The size range is Small, Medium or large and the age range is only 3 – 4 years so as you can see it is limited, but, if your looking for a mermaid dress in this age range for your daughter you can’t go far wrong with one based on the most amazing mermaid ever.
The costume has been rated well on Amazon with 4 – 9 stars out of 5, very well priced. The only thing I feel that lets it down is it’s limited to an age range of only 3 – 4 Years. However, for the people that have purchased it they have been generous with there reviews:
Ariel Inspired Adult Mermaid Costume
This adult based mermaid costume will make you look like you’ve come straight out of Atlantis, the long green dress is made from 100% polyester and made to fit over the hips & thighs, it offers a very complimentary look and comfortable at the same time.
The costume also comes with the purple crop top which is also made from polyester, a seaweed boa, and a golden seashell purse. This is a great mermaid costume that doesn’t feel cheap, it’s very comfortable all round and is made from quality material.
If your a long time little mermaid fan then this is the costume for you, guaranteed not to disappoint.
The costume comes in all sizes ranging from small, medium, large & X – large.
On Amazon this costume is priced a little higher than some of the other, however, based on the reviews it’s one of the best.
This lovely fitted mermaid costume comes with a matching headband. Perfect for costume parties and Halloween.
The costume has received some generous reviews on Amazon but I have noticed that a lot of the reviews state, this costume is more suitable for ladies that have a bigger bust.
However, it does come in four different sizes of small, medium, large & extra-large. Again based on the reviews I would look to try a size below for a more suitable fit.
Overall, a great looking mermaid costume that is guaranteed to steal attention with its shimmering looks, it’s a reasonable price and as I mentioned before, received some great reviews.
