15 Sports ‘Wardrobe Malfunctions’ That Are Still Embarrassing Years Later

When athletes are focused on winning, they don’t have a lot of time or attention to give to a broken strap or tear.

SO in the middle of a game, things that regular folks would notice go untreated…and get worse.

The results are these wardrobe slip-ups that withstand the test of time. Let’s at least hope that these unlucky athletes won their contests to offset the embarrassment they feel after these goofs.

“Keep your eye on the ball”…

…is a sports cliche, and you can see what happens when someone follows it too literally.

A tackle’s a tackle…

…but you get the feeling that if this Baltimore Raven could do it again, he’d attempt a less unpleasant method!

This was all intentional, believe it or not.

I mean, how many people approved these things to this point? Someone must have it out for these cyclists!

A small, but important, goof.

Uh, when you’re designing the team’s uniforms, don’t put the flag upside down like they did on these kits for the Philippines.

Ricky Berens gave a little too much away at the 2009 World Championships.

I wonder how long it was until he felt a draft or someone notified him that a full moon was out.


I always wonder how someone can screw up such a simple task? I mean, are they doing it on purpose?


I guess when you’re in the middle of a horse race, the best you can do is stay focused and deal with it later. It’s not like you can call a timeout!

Serena’s fashion choice…

…is a little odd. Maybe it was strategically meant to distract her opponent? And the ref? And the fans?

Bobsled + Rip = Chilly

I bet the victim, UK bobsledder Gillian Cooke, was in a big hurry to jump into her sled.

Arms up!

Russian figure skater showed the world more than she intended to with this unfortunate slip.

This bobsledder had his malfunction behind the scenes, but…

…he wasn’t too shy to share it on social media. Maybe try a child’s large next time?

Surf champ Stephanie Gilmore…

…can’t help but laugh as her swimsuit goes in two different directions during her performance.

Water polo is surprisingly violent.

So it’s no wonder with all the grabbing and flailing that there are a ton of wardrobe slips caught on camera above and below the surface.

Something ain’t right…

Fortunately, she was able to, ahem, “put her finger on it.”

Thank you. Thank you very much.

The Lingerie Football League was pretty much designed with wardrobe malfunctions in mind…

…so don’t be too surprised by them. I would even dare say that they’re not all that “accidental.”
