MrsHalpert:  same thing happened to me! I walked all the way Down the office corridor with my skirt tucked in my … even worse … Nude tights showing, as I was wearing a thong, my ass to everyone. Stood at the coffee machine and a male colleague walked by and pointed it out COULD HAVE DIED. 

RedWine13:  I’ve also been to a wedding … Ok different thing … Where a poor girl was wearing a pencil dress a tad too tight, shed obviously forced the zip up and in the middle of a crowded dance floor the entire side seam split, armpit to knee. we didn’t know her but myself and friend were dancing next too her and kind of huddled round to get her to the toilets as discretely as possible… I could have cried for her!

I had to change at work one day after leaving class.  That day I happened to be wearing this super cute polka dot bra.. I didn’t notice how completely see through my work shirt was until I got home that night.  I’m not sure how I managed to work around all these doctors and nurses and not one mention it.  

I have also had the curse of the falling scrub pants.  I also have a snap up scrub top and a patient pulled on my top and unbuttoned it.  Luckily I always were a tank top under my scrubs, but now I wonder why they even make those.

MrsHalpert:  I almost did this. Thank goodness for large mirrors on multiple walls in that bathroom or it’d have been bad. I worked in a large call center and it was not all women.  That adrenaline rush lasted a while haha!

RedWine13:  Thankfully, we were going home when my friend noticed that my butt was hanging out. She had my back, literally that day. 😛  Well, my right butt cheek really…

I managed to get my skirt tucked in to my undies on a bathroom break and walked through the entire building (a warehouse and offices) without noticing until I went to sit down. The entire staff saw my cash and prizes. Whoopsie.

I used to work nights and always wore a black long sleeve shirt to work, well I recently switched to day shift and attempted to wear my typical black shirt and when I walked into the bathroom, I noticed that I could see my bra entirely through my shirt. Whoops, now I wear undershirts or sportsbras under it! Plus, just last weak I was wearing a solid colored under armour shirt with my scrub pants, and it took me until the end of the shift to realize I was wearing it inside out all day! Oh well, easier to just laugh about it. Don’t stress the small stuff! 🙂

We did a volunteer event,a fish fry. Apparently you could see my bra through it. Like down to the print!

 

Also,I went to the restroom and there was a huge hole in my pants! How embarassing,I didn’t know what to do….so I stapled them. And just my luck,surprise defensive tactics refresher!! I had to explain to my supervisor why I couldn’t participate.

Then like a week later my zipper broke on my uniform shirt…stapled it. Uniform was just falling apart lol

Aquaria:  Wow – really glad my dryer does not do this. The pants do not have the elastic backing?

RedWine13:  Ok I work as a nurse….and usually I ALWAYS wear shorts under my scrub pants and a t-shirt under my scrub top….but unfortunately i still have 2 stories for you…

1.) My first and only trial ever of the button up scrub top….I luckily hand a tank-top underneath….but it was white and my neon green bra didnt help plus lower cut lacey type thing….anywho we moved a patient who for some reasono decided to grab my scrub top right below my bust line and pull….so the whole thing came open…and as she pulled it open she somehow got ahold of my undershirt and pulled in the same direction exposing my bra clad breasts to her, her husband, her doctor, the medical resident with her doctor and my charge nurse that day….i about died….the poor lady apologized profusely (I should note we were hurridly getting her back in bed after a post operative complication so she was quiet frightened and clinging to me…) luckily i had known everyone involved for a few years (staff wise anyways) but still embarassed….

2.) I one day was in a hurry for work and was only working a part shift and didnt slip shorts on under my scrub pants but alas i was going to visit Fiance (then BF) that day and so of course i did what any 20 year old girl does….i wore cute panties (and by cute i mean nearly non-existing) since i was going to quick change and then shower at his place….well helped transfer a patient they ended up getting ahold of the side of my pants on the way down to their chair and yup scrub pants came down just enough for my male co-worker (who was kind of a creepy guy….never towards patients but ya know the overly friendly, huggy, always asks the younger co-worker females out for drinks guy) to see my (while very pretty) thong and my butt….extra ackward….

oh and i have one that isnt work…but school related….

I was a junior in highschool, went to prom, wore this dress my parents hated (so of course it was the coolest dress ever at the time)….strapless…with a built in bra cups….so guess who didnt wear a bra….you got it this girl….so things were great until i was swing dancing with my crush and somehow during him spining me back to him my dress slipped and both boobs popped right on out to say hello….i was mortified….altough he did ask me on a date for the next weekend….so there was that even though he turned out to be an utter douche….luckily i dont think many people saw that….but then again…i was never asked/teased about supposedly stuffing my bra ever again….(i developed breasts way before most of the girls my age and they were bigger and i got teased and alot of girls even though i shared a locker room with a few of them for sports insisted that i supposedly stuffed my bra….i think i provided sufficient evidence after that that i didnt…)

so after these im like super paranoid about wardrobe issues…

RedWine13:  Not anything too crazy, but when I worked the 5am shift one day I sleepily put my scrub top on inside out. I didn’t realize until about two hours into my shift.

RedWine13:  I’m a teacher and I’m usually super careful about my clothes (no dresses higher than just above the knee, high necklines, sensible shoes etc). I had a student on my first teaching placement who had a fixation with undoing buttons and zips. I didn’t realise that one day she had crept up beside me while I was reading to the kids and unzipped my boots. Stood up, boots fell off, stacked it in front of 23 kids and my supervising teacher.

Nay1976:  Darling Husband once wore two different shoes to work and didn’t realise until home time.

The best part was, one was lace up and one wasn’t, so he would have had to actually bend down and look at his shoes and he still didn’t notice!
