50 Greatest Athlete Wardrobe Malfunctions

athlete wardrobe malfunctions

Before Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake came along, we didn’t know what to call it when an athlete’s basketball shorts got pulled down, or their swimming suit got tugged by an overzealous water polo opponent. But now we do. We call them athlete wardrobe malfunctions.

Of course, in the olden days, athlete wardrobe malfunctions were rare. Athletes didn’t wear uniforms made of space-age fabrics designed by NASA. They wore things made out of wool, cotton, and polyester, and they fit in such a way—not too tight, but not too loose—that everybody’s junk pretty much always stayed in the trunk.

This is not the case today. Many athletes now wear skin-tight getups made of delicate fabrics designed to reduce wind resistance. And the one’s who don’t have uniforms so baggy it’s a wonder they keep their various body parts concealed at all. As a result, today’s athletes have bits and pieces of themselves popping out all the time

Today, we’re going to take a look at 50 of the greatest athlete wardrobe malfunctions of all time, all of them made possible by some combination of flimsy outfits, freak mishaps, or bulging physiques. Technically the images are all safe for work. However, we cannot guarantee your boss will approve, so exercise some caution.
