I have seen boobs and butt cheeks hanging out when the kids walk on their way home from school.
Girls dressing inappropriately on the way home from school makes it all right to dress inappropriately for prom?

Suzy, you and I usually agree about things here at C-D, but we disagree on this topic. As photographed, I think the dress is just fine. In fact, I think she looks absolutely gorgeous.

I have run up against this one myself. It's 110 degrees outside and the ladies that are small-chested can wear whatever they want, but a hint of cleavage will get you sent home according to corporate dress code.

I used to buy minimizer bras (these essentially strap your breasts down like duct tape. Not real comfy) because I didn't want to wear a burka or a turtleneck to work in the Vegas summers.

Apparently other girls wore backless dresses and thigh high slit dresses to this prom. The dress she wore does not look particularly "revealing" to me. She just has boobs.

Your thoughts?

This Girl Was Kicked Out of Her Prom Because of This "Revealing" Dress
It doesn't seem like any big deal to me.

Yes, I understand there will be some minimum standards. But this doesn't seem egregious.

Last Friday, Amy "spent time looking for the perfect dress, got her hair done and was meticulous in putting her makeup on," Tiffani Taylor, a friend of Amy's, wrote on her Facebook page. But despite looking "like a princess," she was turned away from the school dance because her dress - an off-the-shoulder embellished tulle gown - was deemed "too revealing."
I just went to our local prom's grand march a couple of weeks ago. There were some off-the-shoulder dresses. Look, I know that 'sexy' makes people uncomfortable. But like it or not, human beings are sexual creatures. And 17 and 18 years olds, even if they're not sexually active, are typically going to project a certain sexuality. That's normal. That may make some parents uncomfortable, and I do understand that. But it's still a reality.

Ultimately, it's a judgment call, and different people will draw lines in different places. But I really don't see this as being something that warrants sending the girl home and thereby ending her prom experience.

I have seen way worse...but I also have a large chest and my parents wouldn't have let me leave the house with all that cleavage showing.

Probably not the best choice for high school. She could have just worn a pashmina or something similar. That fabric dip in the middle is the issue.

When I was in school is was all about the short skirts. That's what administration griped about then. Now it's boobage.

I agree that it's too much for the prom. Maybe there is a way that a standard can be set across the board for girls of all sizes.

I just do not think it is appropriate for a senior prom, nor for a 17/18 year old. I do think it is flattering on her, I just do not think it is appropriate.
