Have you ever wondered what it would be like to effortlessly glide through the water like a mermaid? It might have seemed like a dream far beyond your reach for one major reason. If you’re a human, you’re more than likely missing the important half of being a mermaid. Since you’re not the only one who has ever dreamed of being part fish, there is now a large market for mermaid tails. Maybe you’ve always known about them, but you never really knew where to buy mermaid tails. Well, we had the opportunity to try out some really cool mermaid tails for sale, so we can help you make your dream come true. Before we dive right into the good stuff, there are a few specs we wanted to go over with you to help you choose the right mermaid tail.
When you start looking at all of the different mermaid tails for sale, you’ll notice that they can come in a variety of materials. There are more high-quality tails, such as rubber mermaid tails, and there are more affordable options made from swimsuit material.
If you’re wanting the most realistic mermaid experience, you’re obviously going to want to find a swimmable mermaid tail. You can also find mermaid tails for costumes and photo shoots if you don’t care to swim in it.
If you’re purchasing a tail for a child, you’ll want to make sure that child sizes are available. It is important to get a tail that fits properly, so you will be comfortable and able to move around more easily.
Just as it is important for a mermaid tail to fit a child properly, it is important to get the right size and fit for an adult. You’ll find that a lot of companies make mermaid tails for adults.
Monofins are the most important parts of functional tails. They give you the propulsion you need to swim like a real mermaid. As you start shopping around, you’ll notice that some tails won’t fit them, some will, and some will even include them.
When you are looking into mermaid tails, you’ll notice that most can be divided into two categories: premium and standard. Premium tails are usually top-of-the-line, custom-made tails. Standard are the more basic tails but they also tend to be very affordable.
While we were doing our mermaid tail research, we found that there are a wide variety of mermaid tails for sale. No matter your budget or personal preferences, you should have no problem finding an excellent tail, so you can make your dream come true. We found everything from cheap mermaid tails to expensive silicone mermaid tails.
We found tails perfect for swimming, and tails that were great for photographs. Most importantly, we found tails that fit children and adults, so everyone can get in on the fun. The bottom line is this: we have searched the depths of the internet sea, so we could help you find the perfect mermaid tails to buy.
Our favorite mermaid tails for sale are the MerNation Genesis Edition Tails. We love this tail because it is premium quality, but it is more affordable than other custom tails. Because it is a premium tail, it is handmade with premium materials. Each of these tails is handmade from 100% Dragon Skin silicone, which meets the industry standards. The silicone is perfectly safe for your skin and can hold up to chlorinated water.
The silicone is very realistic, so you can swim in this tail with ease. This is a monofin mermaid tail, so you have the choice of a Finis Wave or Rapid monofin, which will be molded into the silicone fluke. Since the tail is custom made, children and adults can own one. All you have to do is send in your measurements per the designer's instructions, and you will receive a tail that should fit you like a glove.
You also get to customize the color of your tail. For this particular tail, you can blend any two colors together to be painted on the thin and light scales. If you have always dreamed of owning a custom mermaid tail, this option will blow you away without breaking your bank account.
Now, if you’re less concerned with aesthetics and more concerned with sticking to your budget, the Fin Fun Mermaid Tail is going to be a great choice for you. This option comes in children and adult sizes, and for the price, you will be able to buy one for each family member if you wanted to. Though they are made from swimsuit material, they are still completely functional. You can still get the feeling of swimming like a mermaid because each tail comes with a monofin. This is definitely a standard mermaid tail, which is why it is so affordable.
Just because Fin Fun makes mermaid tails for cheap, doesn’t mean that they won’t get the job done. Adults and children will find hours of endless fun with these simple tails. One nice thing about the swimsuit material is that, unlike custom silicone tails, these swimsuit tails are very easy to wash. You can just toss them in the washing machine and continue on with your day.
You’ll still have plenty of fun design options to choose from because the tails come in nine different colors: Arctic Blue, Asian Magenta, Aussie Green, Barracuda Black, Celtic Green, Malibu Pink, Rainbow Reef, Tidal Teal, and Tropical Sunrise.
If you have a vision for your ideal mermaid tail in your head, you can sketch it out and have it made into an EvaTail Custom Mermaid Tail. These custom-made tails are also made by hand from 100% Dragon Skin Platinum Cure Silicone. The thing that sets these tails apart from other mermaid tails for sale is the fact that they are completely customizable. Every single mermaid tail is made to fit your own measurements, so children and adults can own a one-of-a-kind tail.
They are all made for swimming, and each tail comes with a monofin molded into the fluke. If you want the most basic option, you can choose up to three colors for your scales, heel fins, and fluke. For more money, you add extra fins to your tail. If that’s still not enough, you can come up with a completely unique order based on your own sketch. Of course, you will have to work with the designer to ensure that your idea is doable and functional. Throughout the process, you will be updated with photos from the designer, so you can communicate and give feedback until your perfect mermaid tail has been completed.

Like most premium tails, this tail is made from 100% Dragon Skin Platinum Cure Silicone. Unlike most premium tails, the designers painstakingly craft each individual scale and place them on the tail. A normal-sized tail will use over 1,000 scales, and you get to choose the design and color of the scales. Since this is a custom-made tail, it can be made to fit children or adults based off of the measurements you send to the designer.
The creator will provide directions on how to send a mannequin of your body from the waist down to ensure that you get the most accurate-fitted tail.

By now, you’ve probably noticed that Fin Fun makes several great H20 mermaid tails. If you like the shape and style of Fin Fun’s other mermaid tails, you will love the extra color options you can find in the Fin Fun Limited Edition Tails. The color and designs on these tails are the biggest things that differentiate them from other standard tails. If you are looking to own a unique tail, but you can’t afford a custom tail, then you should be able to find a design you like out of the six available. You can choose from Bali Breeze, Blue Tang, Groovy Goby, Sapphire Peacock, Maui Splash, and Sunburst Monarch.
These mermaid tails are made from ultra-shiny swimsuit material, so the tails all feature a texture that mimics shiny fish scales. You can protect the cool design from rubbing off on the rough pool bottom with the included protector tape. The material is comfortable and stretchy like you would expect from any decent, standard mermaid tail. Children and adults can find sizes in these fun tails that are great for swimming. Each tail comes with a monofin that provides excellent propulsion but can be removed quickly if needed.
The last of our favorite mermaid tails for sale is the MerNation Full Silicone Tail. As the name suggests, this tail is made completely out of 100% Dragon Skin Platinum Cure Silicone, which means it is premium quality and safe for your skin. Like MerNation’s other handmade mermaid tails, you have a lot of options to customize your tail. Each tail is custom made to your own measurement, so children and adults can design their own tail. However, you can only choose one color.
There won’t be any shading, blending, or variation in the color, but you can add several different fins to get the look you want. You can add dorsal and pec fins, or you can add heel, calf, and hip fins. You get to choose between a Finis Wave or Rapid monofin to be molded into the fluke of your tail. If that isn’t enough customization for you, you can add scale highlights, a glitter top coat, or individual glitter scale accents.
The more customizations you make, the more money it will cost, but having the perfect tail is more than worth it for serious merfolk.
