Teen denied entry to prom due to big breasts

As much as you work out, run, do Pilates or diet, there are some things on the human body that you cannot change. One of these traits is the size of your breasts.

A high school senior for Washington was reportedly turned away from her senior prom because her breasts are too big.

Brittany Minder of Silverdale says she felt embarrassed and humiliated that she couldn’t participate in the high school tradition.

Minder was wearing a strapless dress, but school officials denied her entry saying she was showing too much cleavage.

“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 told KOMO News.

According to KOMO News, Central Kitsap High School’s dress code allows for strapless dresses as long as cleavage, midriff and lower back are covered.

“It was blatant from the start that the school was not being fair in how they were enforcing that rule,” Brittany’s father Gary Minder said. “A girl like Brittany should not have to go to a dance in a burlap sack because she’s large busted. It’s ridiculous.”

Minder was allowed to enter the prom if she covered herself with a shawl.

“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.”

Her parents told KOMO News they want a public apology from the school.
