Some School Districts Crack Down On Racy Prom Dresses

GREENSBURG (KDKA) — Several school districts are cracking down on dresses this prom season and students who don’t follow the rules won’t be allowed to attend.

At MB Bride in Greensburg, prom shoppers have more than 1,000 gowns to choose from and the staff is prepared to help them pick one that’s appropriate.

“Usually we tend to know what schools have the restrictions and which ones don’t, so we already know ahead of time what to kind of sway them away from,” Jenn Mason, manager of MB Bride, said.

Some dresses are so extreme, MB Bride chose not to carry them, but their seamstresses are also prepared to sew in sheer panels to make your dream dress fit the dress code.

Still, some prom-goers don’t think fashion should be censored.

“Prom is a time to be unique and dresses [are] the way to show it,” Taylor Gombar, a Greensburg Salem High School student, said. “You have to use your dress to show who you are.”

As for Kayla Wohlgemuth, she settled on a dress that fits her personality and the Penn Trafford dress code.

“You don’t have to get a cutout dress to look good,” she said.

    They are only teenagers, they can Ho it up for the rest of their lives

    I want to know if there are dress code requirements for the guys? How sexist is this? What if a boy shows up in super tight pants with his crotch bulging? Does he get sent home? How about if his shirt is a bit too low and reveals some chest hairs? Is that acceptable? Isn’t it time to stop pinning sexuality only on women and girls?

      Sammyjo, If a guy showed up to a prom dressed the way you described, he’d get is arse kicked by his peers and sent home with his underwear up over his head. Come on really, think about it one time.

    I agree with Michelle, a parents worst nightmare is to have a welfare stricken daughter. Keep the dress code.

  5. sammyjo says:

    “Prom is a time to be unique and dresses [are] the way to show it,”

    So you need to show you’re a hoooker? Um, you want to be unique? Go vintage or something, yeesh.

    dresses at my school have to be approved. it is a hassle and once you bought it and it gets rejected your out of luck. no wonder there is anti-prom at my school.

  8. kimby says:

    I agree with the code,my son graduated from City High Charter School a few years ago and their principle required the same thing.She had the young ladies bring in their Prom dresses for her to approve for prom.I think it worked out well they all looked so nice and lady like.And yes I would have still approved if they requested it for my daughter.But, I would never let my daughter wear some of those dresses that I have seen on some of those girls. WHERE ARE THE MOTHERS!

    some of the mother still try to dress the same way….hos breed hos.
