UPDATE: WATE 6 has released this update.

“The teen’s father told WATE 6 that an alteration to her dress broke after this picture was taken, causing the dress to be much more revealing once she was at the prom. The picture in the post shows a piece of lace that was added to make the dress more conservative. The girl’s parents said that the lace broke off, which made the neckline several inches lower and wider than in the picture. That’s when a teacher asked her to wear a jacket.

WATE 6 will not publish the photos of the teen in the dress after the alterations broke, at the request of her parents. Anglim added that the neither the girl nor her parents complained to the school district about the incident.”

MARYVILLE, Tenn. — A Tennessee girl was reportedly shamed for wearing a dress deemed too revealing for her high school senior prom.

The story came to light after the mother of one of the girl’s friends posted about it on Facebook. Tiffani Taylor posted a status update about her daughter’s friend, identified only as “Amy.”

“After spending some time in the restroom crying, she was told she could go in if she wore the vice principal’s tux jacket, which mind you, did not cover her chest. She was told by a teacher repeatedly ‘Us big girls gotta cover up’. This young girl was SHAMED for having breasts,” Taylor wrote in her post.
