How do I know what size tail and fin to order?
We have set up a detailed sizes section for your reference and you must make sure the sizes you send us are correct.
What’s the material of the tail like?
Created only from the best lightweight Polyester and Spandex blend, the tails are safe to be used in chlorinated and salt water. Available in a variety of vibrant colors, our beautiful tails were designed to resemble a real mermaid’s tail, and the detail in the scales and fluke have been designed to look 3D. Our team has created custom, fun and realistic prints, exclusively for the Mermaid Tail Factory and for you and your little mermaids’ enjoyment.
How should I wash and store my tail when not in use?
Rinse the tail and fin under fresh water – you don’t need to disassemble every time. If you wish to give the tail a machine wash, it can be washed at 30c, however don’t use detergent as this can cause the colors to fade. When you swim in salt water, make sure you wash the tail’s zipper in fresh water after use. Always store the fin upright on the heel of the ‘shoe’, or on its side – never on the points of the fin as this will cause damage.
