The Very Best of Wardrobe Malfunctions

Last month, I shared an embarrassing story about a coworker and good friend of mine who ended up at work one day with a coat hanger entangled in the belt on the back of her Winter coat.  Anyone who wants to read that post can find it Here.

The best part of that post was definitely your comments. Many of you were quick to tell us your own embarrassing tales of "wardrobe malfunctions" so today I wanted to share a few of those great comments with everyone. Hope you are all going to be good sports about me blabbing here.

Before I do though, I wanted to share one of my own embarrassing moments. It was while wearing a pair of those stretchy black yoga pants. I was wearing them in the mall one day and it wasn't until I got home that I realized I had been wearing them inside out. You see, printed against the dark black background across my butt were the bright WHITE letters spelling out  "LARGE" Oh yes, you can bet that's one of the first things I check now before stepping out while wearing them Lol!

So here's a rundown of some of my favorite comments from that post:

BigSis found a pair of underwear in her pant leg at work;

Mae Rae found her kids socks hanging out of the collar of her sweater;

The Mommyologist  went out all day with a size sticker still on the front of her shirt right across her boobs;

Corrie had her skirt caught up in her underwear;

Jackie also had her skirt stuck in her undies but this time, at a job interview and GOT THE JOB!!

Kate walked down a line of her classmates in school with her skirt tucked into her tights too!

Suzicate said her hubby once felt a knot in the sleeve of his shirt and pulled out a pair of her panties

and lastly

Gayle told us that her hubby had a knee high fall out of his pants

Anyone else brave enough to share one of their own wardrobe stories? And please go visit these gals who were so willing to give us a giggle and tell them what good sports they are!

Thanks for sharing these! Good to know I'm not the only person who has had a wardrobe malfunction or two!

Hope you have a great weekend.

Only time I recall was when I was around 19 and working at a department store...I was a cashier....so all day I was around people.....later that day on break I noticed my shirt was inside out...tag clearly in front, seems all over...yes, you think someone would have mentioned it to me!~

Frau said...

Too funny! I always end up with dryer sheets coming out pants leg. Great post!

Buckeroomama said...

Thanks for the giggles.

I think my worst wardrobe malfunction was wearing a sweater backside in front --not that it was too noticeable. ;p

Daffy said...

These are just priceless! I have so many wardrobe malfunctions I stopped remembering them. I've been on stage interpreting in a theater full of hundres of people with my zipper down. I've had baby spit up all down the back of my sweater and clueless about it.

I've been to Walmart with 3 Goldfish stuck to an ass cheek....black pants no less.....

Sheesh. I'm going to stop remembering now....

SuziCate said...

Thanks for sharing those. Now we know, we're all human and laugh together.

Too Many Hats said...

Hahaha - I've had my skirt tucked into my hose before. So embarrassing.

Noelle said...

Does toilet paper ticked into your hose and trailing out from underneath your dress count? Major disaster.

Years ago I was helping at a party with a group of my mom's friends and a pair of pantyhose fell from my pants.

A few weeks ago I was at work for an hour or so before I realized I was wearing my shirt backwards.

And too many times to count when I went to work with some kind of baby food on me and pretended to be shocked when someone pointed it out...really I was just too lazy to change.

HT said...

I had to think about this one. Going to university I initially stayed in an all girls fraternity house on campus and a guy I met by chance somewhere came over to the house to visit. I was summonsed to go downstairs to meet with him. We did not have a date planned and I was definitely not dressed for the occasion at 11PM at night. So I hastily threw on some clothing.

After he left I realized I had my sweater on inside out. He did not say anything, but I'm almost 100% sure he must have noticed my sweater being inside out.

Could the earth just open and swallow me whole please! I think I moved off campus shortly thereafter. Just kidding. LOL.

Mary said...

This didn't happen to me, but a friend said that she walked around the mall with her bra hanging off of her pocketbook and didn't notice!

Aging Mommy said...

Oh these are just hilarious! Thank you to you and all your followers for a wonderful laugh on a Friday morning! I have never had a major wardrobe malfunction although when out recently a lady stepped up to me and said "excuse me for asking but do you know you have lots of balloon stickers on the hood of your jacket?" My daughter had somehow managed to reach my jacket in the closet and attach lots of her Pooh stickers to the hood. I then realized that I must have been walking around like that for days.

MiMi said...

I walked around with a gigantic L on my shirt in h/s. As in an L sticker. For LARGE...the size of the shirt. WOOPS.

Kat said...

I have pulled bounce dryer sheets out of places I don't EVEN want to mention LOL

Anita said...

Your yoga pants story - LOL!

When I was breastfeeding and wearing cotton nursing bras, a woman in the church foyer (filled with people) came up to me and pushed the shoulder strap back under my sleeveless shirt.

When I got home, it had slipped a little from under the shirt again, and was aghast when I looked and saw how worn, torn, and ragged the strap was.
How many people saw that!
How many wanted to push that strap under the shirt, but didn't?
Well, I had my baby sitting on my hip...they probably excused me for wearing an old nursing bra.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

I remember the post, and I guess I didn't share that day. But I have a T shirt that says "I (peace sign) NY." So one day while the kids are at school I put it on and look in the mirror to brush my hair. All is cool. Go about my business, get the mail at the post office. When I pick kids up at the bus they inform me I have the shirt on inside out. Of course, it read correctly when I looked in the mirror, but it just didn't dawn on me. Oh, well...

Heather said...

Too funny!

Once I came home from a night out with my boyfriend and dad was like..so what did yall do? Oh, nothing, just talked. Later to my dismay I realised my shirt was not only wrong side out, but backwards too. Oh yeah...dad noticed!

Linda Medrano said...

My kotex fell out the on the floor at a Safeway. I kicked it under the shelf and kept walking. These were in the days of belts and napkins. Malfunctions indeed!

Rabbit said...

Being me, wardrobe malfunctions are a dime a dozen. But my best had to have been when I was still performing back in New Orleans. I was a lot more agile back then (this was over a decade ago) and was known for my flips and tricks and all kinds of other madness. Our stage was a big runway right down the middle of the bar with tables lined up on either side. I came out all Super Diva to the end of the runway and then proceeded to do several back flips down the runway. On my last landing, I ended up standing on my wig. Went to pop up - wig came off and I went caREENing off the stage and onto a table full of Chelsea Boys. Broke the table. Drinks flying everywhere. Screaming Nellie Queens all in a tizzy. And wouldn't you know they were filming the show that night? They played my little mishap on a loop for AGES after that on the tvs at the bar. I liked to have never lived it down.

Trish said...

Oh how embarrassing ....nothing too embarrassing here besides leaky boobs and forgetting the breast pads to protect from the leakage! Yikes!

Me....bunny said...

Walking with so called friends to Jr. High one morning wearing a brand new black and white polka dot Rayon dress, when it began to rain...It started shrinking before my eyes and by the time I got to school it barely covered my bum. A neighbor had to come and get me cuz my parents were at work already...BTW...my friends wouldn't give me a coat to cover up with...hence, the SO CALLED friends remark. It's hysterical now, but then...humiliating.

tootles,
bunny

Just the other week, Bree had dropped a piece of chocolate on the booth we were sitting at in a restaurant. I thought I had brushed it to the floor, and didn't think much of it. After we left the restaurant, we went to a sporting goods store, and walked around for a while before going home. When I went to get into my stretchy pants at home, I noticed that across the back of my jeans was a huge smudge of chocolate. It looked like I had pooped my pants. No wonder people were looking at me funny.

Six Feet Under Blog said...

How embarrassing! I think we've all had our embarassing moments. lol
Mine was when I my nursing pad fell out of my shirt while at the store, and my oldest (was five at the time)yelled out, "Hey Mom, your breast pad fell out!"

Heather said...

Those are great! One time at work I bent over and the back of my pants split. Thank goodness I worked at a department store.

3LittleMonkeys said...

Ummmm...ya, I've walked around with that size sticker right across my tata's too!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Those were so funny but yet, I could almost imagine wanting to crawl under a rock somewhere.

When my daughters were little, I was right in the middle of making a cake when I ran out of a certain ingredient. I went to the store. I noticed funny stares my way but thought nothing of it. When I got home, I looked in the mirror, I had a streak of frosting on my nose and cheek. My daughters told me that they saw it on my face but thought it was supposed to be there so they didn't mention it. (They were young so I let it go.)

Talk about embarrassing!

Tammy said...

Nice Yoga Pants Deb...lol!


I have had a bounce sheet stuck in pant legs, arm sleeves and sweatshirt hats...:)

I will ahve an award waiting for you on my blog in the morning!

Aphrodite's Mortal Friend (ME) said...

Poor Jackie- thank God she got the job!!! My worst "malfunction" would be sweating a TON through my shorts and all at a 100 degree soccer game ... NEVER wear tan shorts when it's that hot!!

Jen said...

Everything I wear is a wardrobe malfunction. I still wear sweat pants, not yoga pants like everyone else. Most of my clothing has settled into a lovely shade of gray because I like to wear black but it tends to fade when washed and worn over and over again. I have no fashion sense anymore, I really need help.

Dual Mom said...

I can't think of anything. I tend to block humiliating experiences from my mind...it's a coping mechanism.

The inside out pants with large across the butt.....ouch. Good on you for sharing it!

Secretia said...

Those are all so funny!

Erin said...

these are hilarious---mine mostly involved walking around with dried spit up all over me, or one of the 22 times i was so tired i left the house without my breast pads in my bra and leaked everywhere in the middle of the grocery store. TMI, but you fellow moms understand.

;-(

kathryn said...

It's funny you should mention this. YESTERDAY, son Connor (13) comes home from school at the same moment I pull in. I inquire as to his day and he says, "Nice look, Mom." I look down and I've got dried coffee-dribble all down the front of my blouse. Evidently, my travel coffee mug wasn't properly screwed on. I never felt a thing...and NO-ONE said a freakin' word to me. Apparently, I don't look down at my own chest very often...(note to self...)

5kidswdisabilities said...

These are GREAT! I had a friend who came to work with a white bra stuck to the back of her black coat. She didn't even notice her static cling problem!!!

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Oh god, let's see -

See through skirts/shirts on sunny days.

Skirt tucked in pantyhose.

Underwear falling down underneath pants.

17 feet of toilet paper stuck to shoe.

I could go on. . .

yonca said...

That is really funny! My son was almost 2 years old. Lol, I didn't see when he put a chocolate on the couch and I sit on it and then went to the grocery shopping with that short.

~J said...

I'm laughing hysterically!! These are all great!

I recently let my daughter borrow my pj pants. (What is it with teens wearing jammies to school?) Anyway, she's much curvier than I in the derriere area. Fast forward a few days later, I woke up and slipped them on to answer the door for my mail carrier...when I noticed he glancing at my vag. i was convinced he was a perv...until I came back in and realized Victoria's Secret was fully exposed because darling daughter had ripped the crotch out of my pants! WHAAAAAAAA

Helene said...

Some of those are hysterical! I would die if the size of my pants were showing!!

I don't think I've had any wardrobe malfunctions but if I do think of one I'll come back!

Gropius said...

For some reason I still think about when I was in elementary school and we had a "Backwards Day." I decided to wear my pajamas to school and felt like a complete dumb ass the entire day.

gayle said...

Looks like you have another blog post with all these comments!! Thanks!!!!

NYCGAL said...

This is a riot! The worst malfunction for me was having my thong fall out of my pant leg!

Dorothy said...

I've done many of those things and today am happy I'm not alone...especially when I ran after some women when I saw the toilet paper hanging out of the back her pants and I wanted to let her know...however even as I was running I was laughing (a nervous reaction) and was embarrassed as I really trying to help.

this was great...

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip said...

Like this post was WAY hilarious. I'm loving the job interview with the skirt stuck in the undies. ANd the fact that she got the job. That is sure fire awesomeness. Great post!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

haha.
A few weeks ago, I went to vote in my new town. (Town elections).
I had a sweater dress on with panty hose (nylons) and After I walked from my car, across the parking lot, in front of a TON of candidates and school board people standing outside trying to get votes, I walked in the building to vote. I caught my reflection in a window...my dress was all the way up over my butt. My butt was shown to all (well through my tan nylons). THANKS static electricity. Oh, and ps. I dont wear undies with nylons. On my way out after voting, I passed the group of people...they were quiet...until they thought I was out of earshot and I heard all these older adults laughing.
I made a great first impressoin, right?

Magimom said...

I hate to say it, but my most memorable wardrobe malfunction was the Day of the Breast Pad failure! I was out to dinner with the hubs, sans newborn son(3 weeks old) for the first time. I was wearing a beautiful mauve dress with a scoop neckline that fit in all the right places... and during dessert I looked down, only to discover deep red maroon stains running from my breasts to my knees... VERY NOTICEABLE stains! I was so mortified I stole a napkin and held it to my chest and RAN to the car!!!
