A little too much cleavage for my taste, but I wouldn’t have thrown her out

If she knew beforehand what the dress code was, then she clearly turned up like this for the attention/to be a rebel etc.. her own fault really. I don’t think the dress is flattering on her either.. however, it does seem like a strict dress code

The dress code was posted. Strapless is okay if there is no cleavage. She could have had a seamstress baste on tiny spaghetti straps and been in the right, but she chose to break the rules.

the school is being absurd. she looks awesome. i’d totally throw a fit at the school, they’re being stupid.

there are no nipples showing. it’s just cleavage. as someone who had 40E breasts in high school, and wore a strapless prom dress, i think her dress is perfectly appropriate and she’s covered up as much as she needs to be.

boobs are boobs. everyone has them. what’s the difference between her showing cleavage and some stick thin girl showing cleavage?

Too much cleavage.  Bad choice of dress.  

She wasn’t turned away for having large breasts.  She was turned away for showing her large breasts.

She signed her acknowledgement and agreement of the rules when she purchased her prom ticket.  She willfully and knowingly broke the rules that she had previously agreed to.  And now she’s crying about the consequences of her actions.  This is called a life lesson.

On one hand I feel for her because she has big boobs so pretty much any strapless dress will give her cleavage. On the other hand, there were rules and she clearly didn’t follow them. And, IMO, the dress was not the right one for her body type, she just wanted to be a rebel.

Sometimes I think situations like this just have too much stubborn going on… her being stubborn thinking “I can wear/do what I want” and the school being stubborn because, really, this girl is almost done high school and it’s not like it will ruin anyone’s night seeing her dressing like that.

The school was well within its rights to deny her access if she violated the established dress code.

Knowing the dress code, she probably should not have gone with that neckline.  But with her bust size, she’s going to show clevage in pretty much any strapless dress she wears, so I do think there was some overreaction on the school’s part.  Her dress is honestly pretty tame compared to some of the dresses I saw at my high school prom.

It’s high school, no highschooler should be permitted to wear something so revealing to a school function

Rules are rules, She bought a dress that was against the rules, she suffered the consequences.

She knew the rules so she should have known better. I do think it would be hard to find a prom dress that wouldn’t show cleavage though when you have such a large chest, but still some straps or something would help. Girls used to get sent home all the time at my high school when they wore too short of skirts/shorts, revealing tops, etc. We all knew the rules and some girls still chose to disregard them.

I personally think this not a very appropriate look for High School. She wasn’t turned away from the prom for having large breasts, she was turned away because she willfully disobeyed the dress code. 

There are a lot of dresses that would have looked AMAZING on her without having her boobs as the center of attention.
