Catholic school's prom dress code for girls draws body-shaming complaints

Some female students claimed the strict guidelines do not take into account different body shapes, according to CNN. A dress could be acceptable worn by one student but violate the school's guidelines when worn by another student with a different body type, the students argued.

The prom dress guidelines have angered some students enough that there is a call to hold a separate prom outside of school.

A school official told CNN that the dress code isn't new and was created by a committee made up of students and teachers. The official defended the private Catholic school's right to teach students "moral values, which include modesty."
