Adult Sized Rental Costumes for 1950's to early 1960's
The most iconic fashions of the 1950's were the full circle skirts with crinolines and sometimes a poodle applique. It is the poodle skirt which dominates most 1950's parties. These dances are often called "Sock Hops" after high school dances were normally held in the gymnasium. Dancers were asked to remove their hard soled shoes to keep from damaging the surface of the basketball floor.
More styles for the 1950's can be found on the page for Grease listed under "Rent School Plays."
