Transform yourself into a mermaid this summer with a sparkly swimmable mermaid tail

As the weather heats up, it’s time to start thinking about your summer wardrobe. Do you have your Chaco sandals at the ready? Does your style resemble the summer music festival look? Or do you plan on living mostly in long tanks and comfortable leggings? (All are solid options.) Another option for summer is spending ample time in a swimsuit. But this year, you can take it a bit further and make your mermaid dreams come true with your very own mermaid tail.

Oh yes, mermaid tails for adults exist. Fin Fun mermaid tails are here to help you finally feel like Ariel, before she ditches her gorgeous tail for a dude, but that’s beside the point. After a long day at work, what could possibly be more relaxing than putting on a mermaid tail and floating around in the water? (Or even just putting one on while you’re sitting on the couch?) Talk about self-care to the extreme. The Fin Fun line is gorgeous, unique, and fun. Plus, they’re swimmable, meaning when you put them on, you really can swim around like the sea goddess you are.

“Besides her mythical personality, a mermaid’s tail is her pride and joy,” the Fin Fun website explains. “That’s why Fin Fun has created an amazing line of 100 percent swimmable mermaid tails made with our dazzling, custom-printed fabrics. Each and every mermaid swim tail from Fin Fun is designed to help you traverse the deep seas (or the backyard pool, if that’s your style) just like all the most famous magical mermaids.”

Behold: the mermaid tail.

Isn’t it the most glorious thing you’ve ever seen?

The mermaid tails come in a variety of colors and patterns to help you decide which kind of mermaid you’d like to be.

Honestly? This is goals.

They also come in kid’s sizes.

And like we said, who says you have to swim in the tail? Reading a book indoors while dressed like a mermaid is a perfectly acceptable activity.

But wait — there’s more. Fin Fun mermaid tails can serve as a real, bona fide workout. If you’re interested in being slightly more active in your mermaid tail, let us tell you about “mermaiding.” Mermaiding is a real full-body workout you can do while wearing your mermaid tail that focuses on your core. And it’s really good for you.

"Water provides a resistance you don't get on land, while also giving a low-impact environment that leads to few injuries," swimming coach Christine Dustin told SELF.

It looks like this summer, the mermaid trend is back in full force. Thank the underwater gods.
