Get a Load of These Slutty Prom Dresses

Prom night is almost here! Will your kid be attending as a teen tart? Here are some of the barely-there dresses that are being marketed to our daughters.

Don't worry: momlogic's got your back with fashion-friendly yet appropriate prom dresses that will keep Mom, daughter and wallet happy. Plus, here are six tips from psychologist Dr.Lisa Boesky on how to deal with those fashion fights.

1. If your daughter is under 16, do not purchase clothing you do not approve of. She won't be happy, but she'll get over it.

2. If she is over 16, negotiate on how sexy to dress. She may want a micro mini skirt and you want ankle length -- compromise with right above the knee. Allow her one sexy item versus an entire outfit.

3. Be aware of your own clothing choices--your daughter is paying close attention. If you dress much younger than your age, don't be surprised if your teen dresses more provocatively than hers.

4. Ask your daughter how she feels when she dresses sexy. Why does she display so much skin? Really listen...even if you don't like what you hear.

5. Ask your daugher to explain how her sexy outfit corresponds to her actual behavior. Does it send the message that she is available sexually? Is she even aware this is what boys assume?

6. Have her father -- or another man she trusts/respects -- talk with her about how boys view girls who dress overtly sexy (slutty, bimbo, airhead, material, etc) He should emphasize the 'sexiness' of subtlety and leaving something to the imagination.

OK, so the first dress on the slideshow was pretty bad, but what’s wrong with the other ones? Just because they are strapless doesn’t mean they are too sexy…give me a frickin break. Do you dress your teen in a turtle neck then? HOLY COW, get a life. Most of those dresses are perfectly fine!

the gallery was a poor example in that most of the dresses were not so bad. A bit too short maybe for my own taste but the models had long legs so who knows. I think the poses were more of a problem. Why are photo shoots posing models inappropriately if they are trying to sell these dresses for young ladies going to prom and not a night on the Vegas Strip?
And I agree w/ the person who said the first pic looks photoshopped.

Are you amish or something? Most of these dresses, while short, are not necessarily slutty.

The dresses in that gallery were not examples of overly sexy prom dresses; they were examples of appropriate ones! Did anyone read the captions?!

Hello I am experiencing a trouble reading your site, I’m given 403 errors extremely often, I am not way too clear as to the reasons however when I reload the page it returns right.

Thank you very much, but you change the theme background color is a good idea gone bad. I’ll continue to follow captions

Just killing some in between class time on Digg and I discovered your article . Not usually what I favor to examine, but it was absolutely worth my time. Thanks.

Now you may have your new site and you’re eager to begin making some gross sales! However, how can you make sales when you would not have high volumes of visitors to your web site?
