A high school senior in Silverdale, Washington is claiming that she wasn't allowed into prom because her breasts are too big. The school would argue that it has little to do with bust size and everything to do with dress code, but 18-year-old Brittany Minder thinks the authorities at Central Kitsap High weren't taking into consideration the fact that her larger-than-average breasts afford more cleavage, and there's nothing she can do about it.
When she tried to enter the dance, she was told she needed to cover up with a shawl or go home. Brittany got that shawl, stayed for an hour, then went home, sad and disappointed. She says her magical night was ruined.
Congratulations. You've now reached the point in the post where I'm going to compare cleavage proportionality at a prom I didn't go to in a state 3,000 miles away.
I'm guessing that Brittany has a point. It's highly likely that there were other girls allowed into her school's prom with the same proportion of cleavage to breast size, and that had Brittany's been scaled down, her cleavage would've been deemed appropriate, as well.
I don't know, I kind of feel for Brittany. I'm not sure I would've called the local news to share my story had it happened to me, but I do feel like she was treated insensitively, if not a little unfairly. Her gown was specifically designed for women with large busts ... what more does she need to do? Wear a turtleneck dress and bind her breasts with Ace bandages?
The good news is, prom will be but a distant memory soon enough.
Do you think Brittany should've been turned away?
