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??

 It's cute but it does need to be longer.

 I see nothing wrong with that dress.

It wouldn't pass the local school dress codes if it fit her the same way it does the model.

HOWEVER

I rarely see those dresses look "as bad" as they do online.  It's probably longer on the girl and if paired with a shrug or wrap more modest.

Really?!?!?!  I'm pretty conservative, but I don't see anything wrong with this dress.  Sure, it could be a little longer, but I really don't think it's excessively short.

I agree that I think this pic has probably been photoshopped and the dress is probably mid-thigh, which is fine for a party dress.   I would need to see it in person, on my DD before I made the decision, but it is a cute dress.

I do have a question for you, as the mother of a boy - you say the dress is too short, maybe a tad slutty, so does that mean your son will be excused if he tried to grope her because 'she was asking for it" because in your eyes she was wearing something too short???????

The dress looks short, but unless she's a runway model and is 5'10 like the girl in the picture I doubt it's going to look so short.
