Yes, yes, Mary! I grew up with the 50s/60s elegant styles, when well-dressed ladies would not leave their home, unless they had on their girdle, stockings, high heels, hat, gloves, dress, full make up, etc.
I was fortunate back then when a few girls, and my mother, knew about my being a CD, and I got to dress sometimes. I can recall wearing a prom gown at least twice, with the long white gloves, and high heels, girdle, bra, stockings, etc. It was a thrill to step out in public, even briefly. The girl across the street and her friend enjoyed dolling me up.
