You will have the option to use a mermaid tail & coordinating top from the DDC prop box, or your mermaid is welcome to bring her own tail/top set for her session. DDC has tails available in turquoise snake pattern in size 5/6 and 10/12. Each tail can normally fit one size up or down. You are more than welcome to make an appointment to view the tails and try them on prior to your session to help decide what  you wish to use and fits your mermaid the best.
