Swimmable Mermaid Tail by whimsyandmalice Swimmable Mermaid Tail by whimsyandmalice
Swimmable Mermaid Tail. Perfect gift for a water lover or for photo opps and shoots. We’ve used these in local parades for themed floats as well as for booths and displays at Halloween Fairs, Fantasy Fairs, and Renaissance Festivals. We’ve done beach photo shoots as well as underwater shoots at local pools which were really awesome! Tail is high quality Lycra/Spandex fabric, thick and lightweight. 1" Thick Elastic Waist Band. Weighs less than 2.5 pounds. Adjustable Rubber Foot Straps - Fits shoe size 1 to 8. Fits person up to height of 6'. FINIS Wave Monofin included. Color: Jade
Only intermediate to advanced swimmers should attempt swimming in it, and always have a buddy with you.

Other options:
Basic beginner swimmable mermaid tails for kids (without monofin/foot straps) are $100. They are open at the bottom so that the tail can be raised above the feet for dainty walking when not swimming. Made from nylon, spandex, and neoprene. They fit tight on the ground and grow in the water. Colors available are rainbow shimmer, emerald, aqua, pink, gold, purple, and silver. Sizes available are 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14. This is a custom item and has turn around time. Convo me for this option.

That's pretty cool, but isn't it kind of dangerous..? I mean, humans have two legs for a reason, and usually when someone gets their ankles tied together with rope, it makes it harder to swim and easier to drown...
I don't mean any disrespect. I'm genuinely curious about this.

Your correct, there is a disclaimer in the message body that states 'Only intermediate to advanced swimmers should attempt swimming in it, and always have a buddy with you.' You first need to practice swimming in a Monofin..I always recommend a FINIS Wave. We actually have a Mermaid Swim School near us adjacent to a Dive and Scuba training center. It's alot of fun once you get the hang of it :-)

Ahh, okay, that clears things up for me, thanks! :)
I love the idea of it. I naturally swim that way - my feet together moving in an up and down motion, while using my arms for steering... I love this idea, I was just concerned about safety issues. Maybe I'll look into it some day. :D It would definitely make for great photoshoots.
