I wore a short dress to prom. It has a high neckline. And a hemline that was fingertip length. In retrospect I should have went for a dress sowing more cleavage. Would have been more flattering. But my mom was anti cleavage. Mom thought my dress was a little short but she let me leave the house. I see far more revealing outfits these days on high schoolers than my short dress. And there is no doubt that plenty of other girls were showing a lot more.

That is true ... breastfeeding in public can really get some people bent out of shape in a hurry. The only ones at peace are the babies.

Nothing wrong with her dress I've seen much worse we all have. Now if your a women who don't have breasts like this girl does I can see that clouding your judgment.

Too bad her parents or friends didn't say something BEFORE she bought the dress. I feel really bad for her that she was embarrassed and missed her prom. But I think her bodice needed to extend upwards an inch or two for the prom.

I'd like to see the photos of the girls who said their dresses were more revealing.

Her dress was fine. She was going to prom, not mosque. Bunch of uptight admins ruined her day for nothing.

I'm sorry but The entire concept of prom is corny and outdated. At my prom No one actually have a **** about the actual event, it was all about the hooking up at the after parties

So what. She still has to abide by the school dress code if it is a school function. She's also legally able to buy a gund an cigarettes (except in CA or HI) but they wouldn't allow those at prom just because as an adult American citizen she has that right. Fifty year-olds can't just wear whatever they want at work either. Same thing. Places have dress codes regardless of your age.
