I’d never heard of a “wardrobe malfunction” until a few years ago. Does anyone else remember that epic half time performance at the Super Bowl with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake? Anyone?
It was during the performance that Janet Jackson’s right boob was inexplicably (or as they said accidentally) exposed, something which was later attributed to a “wardrobe malfunction”, and voila! A phrase was coined
Alright so perhaps most of us would not have had something that dramatic happen to us in our daily lives but I’m quite sure that we’ve had our wardrobe malfunction one way or another, when we least expect it and when we least want it to. I cannot possibly be alone in this right?!
Go on, spill your stories
In my case, other than the usual things about skirt hems dropping (and because I’m lousy at sewing, I’ve actually held it up with double-sided tape until I can get someone to repair it for me I have to learn to sew!) or buttons inexplicably falling off when I least expect them too (watch that diet!) or getting a run in my stocking when I used to wear stockings (clear nail polish helps contain a run!) I haven’t had a major wardrobe malfunction.
But 2 recent incidents did result in a rather embarrassing situation.
In the first, I’d pulled on a dark maroon chiffon blouse over jeans for a casual Friday look. It all looked fine at home, I felt great and it was perfect considering the day was incredibly hot and blanketed with haze. However, what I didn’t realise was that in sunlight, the top turned transparent! Ok, not it was not a magic blouse, but it became very sheer in bright light so it was pretty embarrassing when it was pointed out to me that my innerwear was on view to the world. Thankfully I had a cardigan on hand, so I quickly threw it on to avoid further embarrassment. Oh boy…
In the second incident just a week later, I had on a formal work outfit with a proper cotton shirt (not giving anyone an eyeful anymore!) and a pencil skirt. As I got out of my car, I heard a heart stopping rrriipppp! and what d’ya know? My skirt had ripped up the back! Sure, it was also a lot easier to walk in it now, but it was so embarrassing!
It didn’t quite expose my butt thankfully, and nothing that shouldn’t be exposed was, and also thankfully I had a jacket on hand, and had to sit down a lot LOL! So I got through the day mostly unscathed, keeping my back to the wall a lot of the time, sitting down a lot of the time and just doing my best to hide my torn skirt and get through the day.
I haven’t had anything else as dramatic happen, thankfully! So that’s my story
Have you had a wardrobe malfunction? Was it an embarrassing situation for you?
Feel free to stay undercover of anonymity if you like. Heaven knows, these wardrobe malfunction situations can be quite horrifying! LOL Ok, your turn!
