UPDATE: The term “wardrobe malfunction” was coined after an infamous musical performance, but it can be applied to plenty of other situations as well. Such as, for instance, the world of female athletes. A lot of the clothes athletes wear are especially prone to malfunctioning, and if you want to see a few classic wardrobe malfunctions involving female athletes, you’ve come to the right place. Now with a couple of bonus malfunctions, in case 50 wasn’t enough for you. Enjoy.
“Wardrobe Malfunction.” Alone, each of those words wouldn’t garner much attention, but together, they make for some of the greatest moments in sports television history. And these wardrobe malfunctions seem to be happening more and more at sporting events as each year goes by.
There never used to be “wardrobe malfunctions” at sporting events. You know why? Because athletes used to wear clothes from head to toe. Consider the famous running scene in Rocky. The Italian Stallion goes sprinting through the old neighborhood and up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in a thick gray sweatsuit. Long sleeves, full-length pants.
When was the last time you saw somebody jogging in a sweatsuit?
Today, sports uniforms are tight fitting and made of lightweight material. The primary benefit of this evolution, of course, is performance. But the secondary benefit? Unexpected boob sightings. In fact, these days you can hardly watch a (female) sporting event without seeing a nipple, butt crack, or tightly packaged derriere.
Total Pro Sports thinks this is fantastic, so we’ve put together a list of 50 classic sports wardrobe malfunctions. We think you’ll be amused.
Among these great moments in sports-wardrobe-malfunction history, you’ll see the breasts and butt cracks off all types of female athletes, from tennis players, to the women of water polo. And let’s not forget about the Lingerie Football players. So what are you waiting for? Check it out!
