Just because they wear designer bathing suits doesn’t mean celebrities like Paris Hilton are shielded from potential wardrobe malfunctions at the beach. Whether it’s running in the sand or getting out of the water, we’ve all had slip-ups, slip-downs and other forms of indecent exposure. The moment that takes the cake for us happened in San Juan, Puerto Rico when a wave came seemingly out of nowhere and knocked the wind out of us – along with our bikini top. Now the editors at StyleWatch want to hear about your most turn-red memory. Tell us: What is your most embarrassing swimsuit malfunction?

all I can say is AMATEURS.

Gee and little butt cheek or nipple peek, not a big deal. Nah, for true embarassment, try a bathing suit bottom with an, ahem, string exposed.

Well, many, many years ago, I was wearing a two piece suit. The top had almost “cardboard” like cups. I was laying on the beach thinking I was Oh so cool, when I looked and one of the “cups” had completely caved in, what a sight that was, I think I basically “crawled” off the beach!

Once, my husband and I were at the Jersey shore and we were playing in the waves. His swimming trunks were still wet from the night before, so he’d chosen to wear an older pair. I was wearing a typical triangle top. We got hit by a couple of strong waves and one of the waves ripped his swimming trunks open. As I was pointing this out to him, a second wave blew my top off. We’re generally comfortable with nudity on beaches, but we felt really bad because there were so many kids playing in the water around us!

I was 14 and on a family holiday at the seaside (we live a long way inland). My 13yo brother and I went to the beach 1 day while Mum & Dad did something else.
I went swimming, got knocked over by a wave, and my bikini top came off. I didn’t realise straight away but when I did I frantically looked for it but couldn’t find it. I eventually called my brother to help (feeling really embarrassed) but he could not find it either. Neither of us had a shirt with us, so I sat on the beach with my hands providing the best possible privacy for a while, and watched my brother have fun surfing.
I had noticed that there were some other girls on the beach who were sunbathing topless. So after a while I decided to just go topless. Once my brother had seen me for a while I didn’t really care any more, and no one else knew who I was.
Mum got quite a shock when she picked us up in the afternoon though :)
