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.
