it's painfully obvious to me that it is a shadow. pubic hair looks like pubic hair, not a shadow. i'm quite sure you'd be able to tell if it were pubic hair.

i did a google search and here are some similar examples of shadows in the same area, and/or pictures that illustrate the shape of a woman's pelvic area: (NSFW)

seriously, i'm kind of dumbfounded that there is even a question. it's so obviously a shadow that it blows my mind that people could look at it for more than a split second and think it was anything else.

If it is so dark a shadow, darker than the shadow caused be her breasts, dark enough to be mistaken for pubic hair, shouldn't her stomach stick out much more?

no, her stomach is obviously just shaped like that. even when i am very thin, i still have a small amount of belly fat that sits right there on my stomach, i'm sure there are plenty of other people whose bellies do the same thing.

Zoom in -- it looks like a shadow!

ETA: Thinking about how that sounds in the context... ewww.

Well, since you asked... [Smile]

A woman goes to visit her doctor because she wants a face lift; her skin has gotten saggy with age.

So the doctor implants two screws in the side of her neck and says to tighten them once a day, and NO MORE. He says this will eventually firm up her face without the face lift surgery.

So she goes home with her new screws and does as he instructs. Except she is impatient with the process and wants to see immediate results, so she tightens the screws twice a day.

Two weeks later, she's in the doctor's office for a follow up, and she tells him about these two zits on her cheeks that have shown up since her last visit.

The doctor leans in and examines her a little closer, then he suddenly realizes the problem:
"Damn lady, those are your nipples, and if you keep tightening those screws so much you're going to have a goatee!!"


[Big Grin] I learned this one compliments of my dad, of course!

Isn't she 19 or so now? How much younger do you think she is in the photo? That is, if you're even being serious... not sure.

I didn't catch how old she is? When was this prom? Dresses like that are banned now.

Uh, you really can't just assume that. Dress codes vary from school to school, what is acceptable at one might not be somewhere else. Look in any prom dress catalog - I've seen MUCH worse.

Well, that did come to mind, even though she's wearing it backwards

ETA: I see the dress came from Impression Bridal. I recall the name from recent bridal catalogs where their dress ads featured brides with naked men. Rather creepy. They also seem to have an awful lot of formal gowns that appear to be geared toward skanky girls and/or drag queens with bad taste.

That's a relief, though the front is still bad.

Not sure she is wearing it backwards, but she's clearly bunched up the "cups" to reveal more flesh. The model in the second picture seems to be wearing it as intended.

When I viewed the two pics side by side it's quite clear the red dress girl has it on backwards. JMO

I saw the exact same picture on the exact same webpage a number of weeks ago and I SWEAR it has since been altered, i.e., it used to be a simple wrap around the waist.....no "shadow" or other issues.

So then the shadow would have been 'shopped in, right? [lol]

Perhaps you simply missed the shadow because you had no reason to look for it at the time. I guess this mystery pic must exist somewhere... Perhaps you can find it on the web archives.
