We’ve all heard of Wardrobe Malfunctions. The term was coined (rather, exemplified) in 2004 by singers Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson, when Justin “accidentally” ripped the entire boob out of Janet’s red and black leather corset and jacket combo, leaving her breast exposed for the entire world to see during the SuperBowl Halftime Show. Since then, wardrobe malfunctions have been popping up left, right and center! I can hardly remember a time when the pop-culture term wasn’t on the tip of every gossip blogger’s tongue and strewn across the pages of each tabloid magazine for our amusement… and to avoid our own such fashion bloopers!
Now, while lingerie is definitely pretty and you may feel tempted to show it off, there is a time and a place for everything! Have a look at some mortifying fashion bloopers below, and let me share with you the quick and easy lingerie secrets that could have saved these ladies from embarrassment in a flash (no pun intended!).
Lindsay Lohan’s Girdle
Alas, poor Lindsay – she had the right idea! Girdles can be a girl’s best friend, but only when worn under dresses that are actually longer than her undergarments… In this situation, Lindsay might have been better off with something a little prettier than a skimpy, nude girdle – like Triumph’s Shape Sensation high-waisted control brief. Shorts provide more coverage, and with lacy panels to cover thighs and pretty scalloped trim, this shaping underwear is definitely a little more pleasing to the eye than a basic, old-fashioned girdle!
This is just not a good look on anyone. I’m confused. Knowing Amy Winehouse and her frequent off-the-wall behaviour, I’m not sure if this even counts as a wardrobe malfunction or if she actually meant for it to look that way! Either way, a simple white bra under a properly-fitted white tank could have turned this garish look into a simply beautiful, casual outfit.
Why, Halle, Why?! For shame! I love Halle, but for such a classy lady this kind of indecent exposure comes as a shock. The worst part about this fashion blunder is that it could have been easily avoided by simply throwing on a slip under her dress, or wearing seamless panties or shorts, like Bra Doctor’s low-rise hipster or Elita’s Invisibles low-rise hipster! Anyway, I’m willing to bet that our dearest Halle was unaware of her pretty blue robe’s transparency and wasn’t trying to draw unwanted attention to herself!
I will not post any Paris or Britney photos out of principle (we all know of their tendencies to give the paparazzi a lot more than they asked for…) but the solution to their underwear dilemmas is about as simple as they come: Try wearing some!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend free of embarrassing fashion faux-pas!
