High school girls and boys in the 1950's were often times nervous about the occasion of the prom, for some their first date. The boys might be concerned that if they asked a girl to the prom that she might turn them down, but upon acceptance the boy could pretty much relax. However the girl's planning just began, she and her mom had to shop to find her one perfect prom dress. Here are those found, perfect prom dresses, 1950's fashion style.
