I’m unsure as to how I feel about a dress code for a prom…I had a girl in the store recently who wouldn’t try on gowns with a low back. She said that her school would not allow them. After several back and forth questions, I was left with a bad feeling. She attends a very large PUBLIC school. She went on to tell me that their gowns had to be approved before they were purchased. Now I am definitely NOT OK with that. A few years back I did feel like gowns were getting away from what they were meant to be. Vendors were making two piece gowns that kept getting skimpier and skimpier! Girls were looking like belly dancers instead of prom divas. So here I sit teetering both ways. I certainly think it is well within a school’s right to establish a dress code. It is a school event. However, having to have your gown “approved” is ridiculous. This is just showing teenagers that adults do not feel they can follow rules or be trusted. Set guidelines and make sure they are well publicized.
