Her body features are lovely yet there is a way to be classy.

Yep. I am wearing a blouse under my suit jacket - and I have one of those lace things that you clip onto your bra to eliminate even the hint of cleavage.

Yep.

The girl is fat, and she needs to be mindful of showing too much. I hope that people here are not saying that fat women can wear anything that slim women can, and pull it off. That is simply not true.


No wonder we see fat women in booty shorts and midriff tops everywhere.

So it IS all about fat shaming! Glad you're admitting it.

The dress in question would not be anywhere near as lovely on a less well-endowed young woman.

I didn't send the girl home, so I'm not sure what you mean by 'admitting it', as my opinion means nothing.


And LOL @ your 'gotcha' comment.

No but you are throwing the word fat around with total disregard for how hurtful that word is to overweight people, some may even be reading this thread.

Since when are we not 'allowed' to say fat?


I see many thread titles on this forum using that exact word in the same context.


If this post were about a woman instead of a kid, no one would care.

I had the same problem growing up (not prom but just being bigger and needing to cover more). As teenager I was so confused what to buy, everything looked sluty on me. I was baffled that I can wear the same tshirt as my cousin & I would be the only one getting told off by my mom for inappropriate dressing when she is perfectly fine. Sometimes my mom would say "why can't you dress like your cousin" and I will have to point out "I have the same freaken outfit". But my huge boobs got in the way.


Its tough I feel bad for the girl.

OK fair enough, just a pet peeve of mine.


I have always had a thing about fat haters. Being thin most of my life I never thought it was fair that I could eat whatever I wanted while my friend struggled to keep his weight below obese levels. He did nothing wrong other than being cursed with slow metabolism. I see people constantly blaming big people with the belief that they are all lazy pieces of crap who do nothing but eat cookies while watching TV. It's not true and its not fair and I know for a fact that big people find the word fat offensive. And that most certainly applies to adults as well as teens.

I'm glad the update was posted. For those who haven't read it or won't click on links,

“The teen’s father told WATE 6 that an alteration to her dress broke after this picture was taken, causing the dress to be much more revealing once she was at the prom. The picture in the post shows a piece of lace that was added to make the dress more conservative. The girl’s parents said that the lace broke off, which made the neckline several inches lower and wider than in the picture. That’s when a teacher asked her to wear a jacket.

WATE 6 will not publish the photos of the teen in the dress after the alterations broke, at the request of her parents. Anglim added that the neither the girl nor her parents complained to the school district about the incident.”


Note that the girl's friend's mother was the one who took it upon herself to state, "This young girl was SHAMED for having breasts.” Not the girl. Not her parents.
