Does your school issue a dress code for prom? Specifically for the girls prom gowns?

"Girls who squeeze all but their cleavage, backs and midriffs into their special prom dresses may not get through the dances’ doors this spring as U.S. high schools

I think part of the problem first of all is the parents.

It is a shame that the kids by that age don't have a little pride in them selves. I cant think I would let my dd outcof the house! I posted a pic if my dd and friends heading to prom, all beautiful and dressed like young ladies

I can't believe that parents let their daughters out of the house looking like that, and they are the ones that buy the dresses in the first place! I hope that more schools crack down on the dress codes, it doesn't hurt to teach girls that they don't to show more and more skin each year.
