Prom is a once-in-a-lifetime event high school students look forward to, so many choose to go all in when it comes to preparing for the big night. And one of the many pre-prom preps would be to decide on your prom attire. When you look back years from now, you'd want to see a pic of yourself at prom and have zero regrets with the look you chose. Either way, we're sure prom nights always bring fond memories regardless of what you wear.

We got in touch with five content creators to take a walk down memory lane and share about the stories behind their prom 'fits. Talk about a major throwback!

Check out these content creators' prom dress stories:

Rain Matienzo

On the inspo behind her prom gown, Rain shares, "I had no sense of style whatsoever in high school, all I knew was that lace was a nice fabric and I wanted it on me for JS Prom so I went with it! It had cute gems as well, I loved that dress so much I didn't care if my tiny high schooler built was suited for it or not hahaha."

Ciara Gan

YouTuber and artist Ciara Gan's prom dress story is not a secret, especially if you've caught wind of it when it became viral. On the inspo behind her dress, Ciara says, "I wanted to create a dress that unapologetically represented me. The color is my favorite, the flowers were tiger lilies (they hold a special significance to me), and painting is my passion."
