Teenager Turned Away From Prom Because Of Her Big Breasts

A teenager's dream prom night was ruined after she was refused entry because she was told her breasts were too big for her dress.

Brittany Minder, who attends Central Kitsap High School in Washington state, told KomoNews she was turned away because of the amount of cleavage exposed in the purpose, strapless gown.

She said she was left disappointed and humiliated.

"In my opinion, I feel that it is because I'm bigger chested and there is more cleavage that you can see, and there's nothing I could really do about that," she said.

The school's dress code states that strapless dresses are allowed as long as 'cleavage, midriff and lower back are covered'.

Her mother Kim said she had no problem with the rules but that there needed to be some understanding.

"All women are not created equal, and you can not compare a golf ball to a grapefruit. It ain't gonna happen," she said.

A school district spokesman said students are assisted if their dress doesn't meet standards. For Brittany that meant wearing a shawl over her cleavage but she left her prom after an hour because she felt embarrassed.

"I felt self-conscious and they took the magic out of the night," she said.

"It was tough being there after all that happened. I didn't feel comfortable. I already had a blow to my self-esteem. I didn't really want to be there anymore."

Mr and Mrs Minder have called for a public apology.
