A modest prom gown or dress does not mean a burlap sack and a rope around the middle. Here are a selection of gowns offered online that if you didn’t know they were qualified to be called “modest” you would have just thought they were pretty prom gowns. Some can be found for under $100. Photo, Eddie Gist
