@allyfally:  HOLY CRAP!  My parents would have slain me before I walked out of the house in something like that….PLUS, our daugher certainly didn’t want to go to prom with her whatever all hanging out!

I never thought of myself as a prude, but when I see what young women wear as ‘formal wear’ all I think ‘well, they’re certainly putting it all out there’.  I would never go out anywhere dressed like that!

@allyfally:  I remember that there were *some* very slutty dresses available and a few select girls would choose them, but in general people at my high school were more about trying to dress to impress than to dress to get elevator eyes….

You should see some of the “Prom” dresses my husbandes cousin’s wear. It’s so tacky and disgusting. It amazes me that their mom lets them go out like that, but then again there is a LOT about her parenting that makes my mouth drop open.

Ugh, I thought it was bad when I was a kid.

 

What’s with the garters?!

What exactly is with the garter belts?!?!

I remember seeing things like that (minus the garter belts) in the prom magazines when I was graduating highschool (more than a decade ago) but I never actually saw anyone wear something like that.  I figured that that was the sort of thing that the slutty girls in California would wear or something.  (I kid, I kid!  Although based on showes like 90210 I’ve always had this silly impressino that teenagers in California dress and act much sluttier than everyone else.)

@allyfally:  I wouldn’t think most schools would even allow that. Mine sure wouldn’t have, though I went to private school.

@GooteyBootey:  I was thinking the same thing! Since when were garters the new thing for prom?! I feel old :-/ OP – I totally agree. 

ETA – Just saw the update – are the garters regional perhaps?
