  • i know while looking at bridesmaids dresses i have found some made for pregnant women. are you sure that it's not a bridesmaid dress that's being used as a prom dress? some dresses would work for either situation. just because a teen is pregnant doesn't mean that she doesn't deserve to go to her prom. it is sad that it's becoming more and more common in our society tho.

  • OP, I think you are looking at it wrong. I think that you think by making maternity prom dresses it is condoning teen pregnancy. But that is not the case. No teen is going to see a maternity prom dress they really like and then go out and get pregnant so they can wear it. I think it is awesome that they make something. Teen pregnancy is up, that is just a fact and there is no reason that a pregnant girl should miss her prom. JMO.

  • Ppl. really need to chill out! It's like if u don't agree u junp over the OP, most ppl. aren't even answering the question.

    I don't think it's cute that they are selling maternity prom dresses. I think it's patting someone on the back for NOT being responisable enough to not get preg in HIgh School.

    I don't think it's a good idea to go to prom, home comming Hwat ever when ur preg, u should be more concerned with saving up money so that u can do everything in ur own power to care for ur own child. I know I'm gonna get junk for that, but it's how I feel and for good reason.

    When I was in 7th grade it was the trend to get preg (yes I said trend) and all the girls I graduated with say the same thing. You weren't cool if u weren't preg. Teachers even gave baby showers in school! I now see females who are 25 or so with 10 yr olds and so many issues they can't even count them. Babies are not mistakes but not everyone
