You’re on your way to making that big shot. Your can feel your adrenaline pumping. You see an opening. Then you make the shot. And… It goes in! The buzzer sounds. You realized you won the game for your team. Everyone is cheering but then you realize almost half of them are staring at you in disbelief. Then you see them laughing. You have no idea what they were laughing about and you give your teammates a “What?” look. You see your teammates waving and telling you to look down. Then you look down only to see your private parts being exposed. You don’t know how it happened and you felt your opposing team had something to do with it. You feel like you want to hide and cry in the corner. But you’re just there — standing with embarassment.
Nowadays, mishaps aren’t just limited to formal and red carpet events. They go beyond that. Now cameras can spot them everywhere and one of them is in sporting events. Here are some examples of uniform mishaps that we’ve come to observe over the years:
1. Stephanie Pratt: Volleyball
Stephanie may have gained traction in the volleyball world with this shot. It’s a good bet that this capture will surely gain plenty of attention. At the same time, she should know better. How about getting a bikini that actually fits?
2. Stephanie Gilmore: Surfing
Stephane seems to be scared of something given her horrifying expression. Will this surfer championship conquer the jaws of a shark trailing her? Or is it simply because her top is set to make a big reveal from her wetsuit?
3. Ana Ivanovic: Tennis
Ana could be one of the hottest tennis players to gain worldwide buzz today. She has a knack for showing off her scale. But this time though, her body a little too much showing given her tight and skimpy top.
4. Ladies: Lingerie Bowl
Seeing women being competitive on the field with little on except for a few protective gear is one sight worth seeing. Since it’s sports, these athletes will do whatever it takes to win for their team. Even if it means pulling one’s uniform down.
5. Rosa Mendes: WWE
Rosa is currently one of many WWE Divas who never failed to impress. It’s fair to say that competition got the best of her when her opponent accidentally pulled down her uniform. Fans will forever remember this moment. For life.
6. The IDRD-Bogotá Humana-San Mateo-Solgar: Cycling Team
This all-female Colombian cycling squad has impressed the cycling world of their talents and efforts to getting really far in the competition. But critics aren’t too impressed with their skin-pressing uniforms especially when they revealed a little too much down there.
7. Wang Jiao: 2008 Olympics, Shanghai
Jiao is one of those people in the history of Olympic wrestling who tries to do anything unorthodox to win. But if that involves tearing her opponent’s uniform from the rear, then it wouldn’t be fair. Even more so if it involves a finger up the chute.
8. Gillian Cooke: World Championships, St. Moritz
9. Jordan Carver: Tennis
Jordan is an avid sports fan. A lot of people can’t take her seriously and she’s out to prove them wrong. Things take even more of a wrong turn when she practiced tennis with a small outfit putting her chest to the pressurized limit.
10. Gymnast: Uniform
Sometimes gymnasts have some sort of habit or ritual they do before they perform. This athlete, for one, felt it’s a good idea to stretch her uniform just a bit. Imagine the photographer doing cartwheels after witnessing this.
11. Ladies: Legends Bowl
This is part two of the female football game we witnessed before. This time though, these ladies have become uber competitive. The lady got the touch down that she needed but clearly, it was her opponent who touched her uniform down.
12. Nicklas Helenius and Jan Vertonghen: Soccer
Soccer couldn’t be any better when it comes to competitiveness and loyalty. These two pros got so competitive that one of them had to put pull down the opponent in front of him to prevent him from scoring. This guy definitely needs to be taken off the field.
13. Kerry Walsh: Volleyball
Women’s volleyball will always involve players wearing skimpy uniforms. Or, in this case, bikini. Kerry must’ve known it’s never a good idea to wear something too small since this shot showed a bit of what her rear end has to offer.
14. Ekaterina Rubleva: Figure Skating
Ekaterina, now a retired ice skater, was an unknown phenom who did fantastic performances on the ice. This shot, definitely boosted her popularity. Which is a good thing, right? I mean, she’s now known worldwide because of this “slip.”
15. Cheerleader: B-o-o-b Slip
Cheerleaders are one of the many good reasons why football has been a hotbed for fans all over America. They smile, cheer, and do different back flips and whatnot to entertain. Clearly, this cheerleader kept on smiling despite part of her top breaking off.
16. Arantxa Rus: Tennis
Arantxa is a talented wonder in the world of professional tennis. She can run, hit, and swat opponents away with her swings. But lately, her “wonders” have been swinging left and right in her tight uniform.
17. Player: Water Polo
Water polo is like the aquatic version of volleyball. Only this time, you get more splashes when someone makes a hard spike at you. But this player should take this shot hard. She is so laser-focused on the game that she completely forgot her top came off. Yikes.
Uniform mishaps happen in sports and no one can predict when and where they’ll happen. Somehow, you can’t get over the fact your top would slip off in the middle of a game or your undies get exposed after a trip from the restroom. These instances can be unpredictable and there’s nothing you can do to curb it. While they can be embarassing at first, you learn to laugh it off in the later going. But the thought of such moment can make you cringe especially when they occur in front of your friends and family. No matter how hard you try to make them forget about the incident, they’ll forever remember it. It gets even worse when the moment gets captured on camera. But no one in this world is perfect. The best you can do is to be careful and not be caught offguard the next time around.
