Funny wardrobe malfunction stories

A few days ago I had my first running wardrobe malfunction. I was a few minutes into my run and I couldn't understand WHY my running skirt kept riding up my bum. As it turns out, I had put it on backwards. I'm positive I was mooning everyone.


I was on a residential street, so when I figured it out I ducked into an empty backyard to flip my skirt. The end of the backyard had some bushes overlooking what looked like abandoned train tracks, so that's where I went to change. Except it turns out that they weren't really that abandoned. They were the subway train tracks.


What has been your worst wardrobe malfunction? It would make me feel better

    I ran half of a marathon once with one leg of my shorts somehow pulled up and tucked into the waistband.  I don't know when or how it happened but I noticed it around 13 - 14 miles.  The shorts were purple and the liner white so it should have been obvious.  Nobody said anything.

    Re: Funny wardrobe malfunction stories

    I headed to a race wearing a long sleeve T-shirt since the forecast was for relatively cool weather. By the time I got to the race site and parked my car, the temperature had warmed up significantly and I needed to change into short sleeves. I did have a spare short sleeve T-shirt in the car. So I figured I'd be efficient and change in the car. Since I'm female and was wearing a standard bra (not a sports bra), I figured I'd better do it real fast. Unfortunately I was a bit careless and managed to put a large rip in one of the armholes. Well, I was going to wear that shirt, so I did the race with one air conditioned armhole. I got a few curious looks but that was all.
