Your ds the chick magnet, huh? LOL! Hopefully there's enough time before prom that he can get to know this girl better and perhaps even some of her friends so he has a decent time. That was nice of him to say yes even as it's been pointed out - boys aren't typically into the whole dress up thing.

That's too funny--1950s was her next choice of fashion era. The clothes are so cool and feminine, and I think they're very flattering to most body types. You shouldn't have much trouble finding a crinoline on eBay or Etsy if you want one.

What's funny is that a couple of years ago, he was a "chick magnet" for Halloween.

The company we bought the dress from recommended a particular crinoline that claims to be made the same since the 50s.

Here's a link to the dress. I like the fact that it's more modest than the typical prom dress.
