A gorgeous woman in an ugly outfit is still a gorgeous woman. An ugly woman in a gorgeous outfit is still an ugly woman.

However when you have a gorgeous woman in a gorgeous outfit.... Well all you want to do is get her out of that outfit..

I actually looked a bit like that in my prom dress (it was before I discovered the rec center at college and lost a shiat-ton of weight,) and I was kind of worried I'd have that problem, especially considering the school administrators were...well...the old phrase 'flat as a board, easy to nail' applied. We had had some cases before where the well-endowed girls got the fuzzier end of the lollipop.

So I busted my ass from September to Christmas and lost fifteen pounds (every ounce of it in the gut and upper arms, because kickboxing and Pilates are like that and some things, like tits, are genetic,) and realized, 'well, tits, I don't like you and you don't like me, but we have to make this work.' Considering I made my own dress with my Daddy and Grandma's help, the weight loss wasn't a problem (four seams, no biggie,) but I still looked, well...busty. And that was with my DAD helping to make the dress!

So, to be absolutely sure the administration gestapo wouldn't give me shiat about the dress, I asked Grandma (from whom said rack was inherited,) what she would do. I took her advice and spent exactly $22.95 at Joann Fabrics for some silky blue costume-sheer fabric, shiny beads, and delicate embroidery silk, plus a few fancy needles. (The fabric was on special.) Then I made myself an elegant scarfy shawl-thing, just a plain long rectangle of fabric with hemmed edges and a bit of embellishment for style. It was just the thing to tastefully cover my upper arms and the worst of the decolletage, and since my dress was done with time to spare, I made a special project out of just the shawl, figuring I could work on it at school and kind of 'show them, show them all!' that making one's own prom dress was awesome and not just something poor kids whose folks make theatrical costumes do.

I hand-beaded the ends and a section near the edge it to match the dress during Study Hall, Home Ec and Art Class, and several of the other girls wound up doing the same. We even had a charming gay fellow (the date of a good friend whose boyfriend had dumped her to avoid the cost of prom tickets,) who worked the school mascot in silk petit point on a Walmart tie and still had time for the initials of the guy he liked on a satin handkerchief he carried as a pocket square. Embroidery and bead-embroidery became this incredible fad at school. Our one linebacker managed to make a cross-stitched stadium cushion as a gift for his mom, because it was cool to do so and he needed something to do while his ACL healed up.

We wore the shawls to the door of Prom, posed for a picture with the dear older lady (a pal of Grandma's,) who volunteered at the school and taught us all bead embroidery, walked right past the administrators appropriate-as-you-please and then either used our shawls to mark chairs or tied them around our waists for dancing.

It was like we were Breast Smugglers, sneaking white meat into prom through the cunning use of a fashion idea my Grandma suggested. We felt so pleased with ourselves, and all of our dates, even the gay one, approved of the shawls.

Of course, Grandma also told us just how to conceal a hip flask, a switchblade and an emergency $20 in a formal gown, as well as how to completely incapacitate a date who got fresh using only a tiny clutch purse and a couple of pressure points. Apparently Forties proms and USO dances were way cooler than anything we get today.

timswar: I saw way trashier prom dresses when I worked retail.  That wasn't bad at all, is only cleavagetastic because of her *ahem* endowments.

Yes she could have chosen something more demure, but why should she have to just to make some school administrators feel less pervy?


Because she isn't a special and unique snowflake who can ignore the rules because she is a special and unique snowflake.

The rules state cover up. If the rules stated that she had to wear a silly hat to go to the prom, then there better be a pretty farkin' ridiculous hat on her head if she wanted to be admitted. This isn't about, "Oh, my God, look at them making a big deal over breasts." It's about how one girl and her parents think that the rules don't apply to them.

Oh, and you can also tell the dress is actually too small because the side seam is too far forward. Hopefully someone will pull her aside and tell her how to buy clothes so they fit.

There's still about two and a half inches of vertical space between the dress and her armpit... which means it's not fitted correctly. You should always buy a dress that fits you at your largest point (wherever that might be) and then get the rest altered down. She didn't follow this rule, which is why the dress is lower than it should be, even for the style. If she bought it a size up, the dress would be about an inch or so up on her body, which would have covered a good amount of the cleavage. People don't like to do this because then you have to spend the money on a tailor or seamstress, but it's the way dresses are supposed to be fitted.

Giving the school the benefit of the doubt that the guidelines for gowns were provided and made clear in advance, this girl has clearly chosen a dress that shows cleavage.  And from the style, it appears that it would show that cleavage for any woman wearing it that in fact had breasts as there is nothing there to cover the top of the chest.  Furthermore, from the article, she wasn't denied entry to the prom entirely, she was required to wear a shawl and then allowed to participate normally.  She chose to leave.  It's time she gets over her righteous indignation and recognizes that she is at fault here.

It's hard to find a dress that covers breasticles like that. Especially when your chest is disproportionately large. And few people have the money to get a dress THAT tailored to her chest, so you have to go with standard sizes. Sucks, but I think the dress is fine.

A girl from my high school had a prom dress that had the neckline plunge to past her belly-button and was clasped by little gold chains. She has to use special boob-tape to keep the tiny bits of fabric over her nipples. God bless her. It was a magnificent sight to behold.

Prom dress code is no visible cleavage and she goes for this dress? I'm sorry, but no one should be subjected to your mammary and re-appropriated side/belly fat. Why do fat girls think their mammary fat is attractive?

I want to get serious for a minute here. Breasts are awesome. The firm breasts of young, nubile women (over 18) are especially great, but I'll certainly make allowances for those of you who are younger and have access to breasts in the 14-17 year range. Those are pretty great too from my recollection.

But we can't just pop those boobs out anywhere. Decorum mandates that they be kept tucked away until the time is right. Sure, they can peek out and create a lovely crease which males, from boys to men, love to ogle and yearn to touch. But the important thing is that the nipples stay out of sight, until it's time to unleash the bosoms and let them hang freely.

Breasts are a natural resource. Sometimes firm and perky. Other times doughy and pliable. But in the end, they are what they are. Sacks of fat. Lovely, succulent sacks of fat. With a nipple.

Don't take these things for granted. Save the breasts.

For all of our sakes.

A gorgeous woman in an ugly outfit is still a gorgeous woman. An ugly woman in a gorgeous outfit is still an ugly woman.

However when you have a gorgeous woman in a gorgeous outfit.... Well all you want to do is get her out of that outfit..

Too bad about the glasses and bad posture.


Man,I dig the glasses. As far as posture, yeah, that can certainly make a much bigger difference than many women realize, but the woman in the photo looks like she's sitting/leaning on the edge off something like a stone wall or something like that. That's not a matter of posture, just how someone looks when they sit on the edge of something.

I don't see a problem, but if that's the rule, don't break it then complain when you get punished. I like the part where she said there was nothing she could do about it - perhaps she could have bought a different dress or just worn a little scarf or jacket thingy like my wife wears when she's wearing a cleavagey dress and cleavage isn't appropriate?

According to the school's dress code, strapless dresses are allowed as long as cleavage, midriff and lower back are covered.

Well, it's in the dress code but does anyone actually crack that book open and look for the definition? Sounds more like it's being applied in retrospect.

Personally I don't like the dress on her, it emphasizes her over-sizedness, but it doesn't seem like there's too much boobage.

The hog in an afghan was denied because she didn't follow the rules, not because her tits were too large. Yes, I'm being vulgar because KOMO, clearly, wants to manufacture controversy out of this one.

The school told her the reason she couldn't wave her cleavage around, provided a reasonable alternative, and let her attend. She left, voluntarily, after a short time, because she was forced to wear a shawl to hide her exposed cleavage, thanks to her silly-ass undercut strapless dress.

Her parents are whining, because the entire family has "you're not the boss of me" syndrome.

I keep trying to get her on Fark, but all she likes about it is Caturday. And the beer threads. So she never made an account...that I know of. My Nana has one, but she's mainly on Reddit now. Considering Grandma and I would likely get into fights over at the Politics tab, that's likely for the best.

She's like the original Farkette, hard-drinking, fast-typing and really loves cat .gifs. I actually look forward to being old so that I can be like her.
