That is NOT an appropriate prom dress!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

DS is in 10h grade and he asked a girl to the prom which is next week. Last night she texted a pic of the dress she'll be wearing (that's not her, just a pic of the dress).

I think it's super slutty!  Too short and looks like lingerie.  How could her parents let her wear that??

I'd allow it... if my daughter wore shorts underneath. lol

I actually really like it. I agree it would be better and more high school appropriate if it were a little longer though.

This is what I was thinking. Plus it could be airbrushed to make her legs look taller/skinner and the dress, therefore, shorter. I really have no qualms with this dress, as long as it stays on.

Quoting aurorabear:

I would just like to say that the MODEL in the dress is probably 6 feet tall! The dress might very well be down to this girls knees!

ya when i think of prom i think of gowns, not a dress.

hopefully my daughter keeps her tastes. we saw some girls from our highschool in their prom dresses and she thought they were so pretty and loved that they looked like princesses.

I'll be honest, I expected much worse.  It doesn't look slutty to me.  Maybe it is too short.  Maybe she'll wear shorts underneath it.

There is NOTHING wrong with that dress. I would allow my daughter to wear it to prom.

I was expecting worse. I don't think its that bad. It does have a nighty-ish look..not something that's my taste.

Some of the super low cut, and cut out dresses I've seen were way worse than that.

I expected something way worse. That's pretty average. My 8th grade graduation dress was of similar length on the model... But went to my knees.

Personally, I probably wouldn't want my daughters wearing that since it looks like lingerie. However, if her parents are ok with it, then there is not much you can do.
