The brilliant blue mermaid tail is made of a stretchy spandex for a snug, comfortable fit. The flipper is stiffened with soft, flexible foam to keep her fins perky, with a pocket cut in for the feet.
This costume is designed to get wet – let her wear it in the bathtub or kiddie pool to play, as well as for adorable pictures! This tail does restrict movement, so children who wear it must be supervised even in shallow water. It is not meant for swimming or use in chlorinated water or on rough surfaces, as it damages the fabric. However, it’s far more comfortable for long wear than the “swimmable” commercial costumes with swim fins in the tails.
The pretty fishtail costume’s upper edge is cut from the spandex and left unfinished, while the sides are reinforced so that the non-fraying fabric can be cut down for a custom fit. The stretch in the fabric will accommodate several sizes, so she can use her mermaid tail for years!
Hand-wash the mermaid tail and hang it to dry for the longest life of the costume. It dries best when hung with the tail end up and a sheet of plastic pressed into the foot pocket; this prevents the foam from sticking together while letting the spandex dry evenly.
Each of our costumes is hand sewn with love in the U.S.A. and shipped quickly.
