Here I am at work, just getting stuff done, working and all, when nature calls... So I head to the restroom and low and behold my zipper is already down!!! I've been walking around all day with my pants unzipped. Fortunately, my top is kinda long today so it's hidden it! How often do you walk around with pants unzipped or buttons undone? Do people tell you about it or do they ignore it? Do you let others know when they have a clothing issue (HA! a wardrobe malfunction)?

LOL at wardrobe malfunction. I have a favorite pair of jeans that after years and years of repeatedly using it, the lock of the zip handle thing just gave way and would fail to keep the "handle" from going or running down (and therefore resulting to separation of the zipper "teeth") pardon my terms! hahaha. Well so sometimes, without me knowing it, the "handle' has gone down again while malling, or shopping, or just walking. Many times it left my fly wide open. I guess people have noticed. So everytime I wear those pants, I always remember to wear a shirt that covers the zipper area`

hahaah - I figured you had some kind of "attachment" to them. I've done that before too! For some reason there are some clothes that I just don't want to get rid of!

It happens to everyone, I know things like that happen to me all the time! I have a few different pairs of pants that seem to have zipper issues and I'll often discover (sometimes while I'm with a customer) that it's been done for who knows how long. I also had a pair with a hole in the butt that I would forget about and keep wearing. And not too long ago I looked down and realized that the middle button of my blouse had come undone and there was a perfect little window to my cleavage. Luck customers that day! So I wouldn't worry too much about your 'wardrobe malfunction'.

Yeah, I hate the whole button thing too. That doesn't happen to me very often, but I fell like an idiot when it does - free peep show guys :)

Hi reinydawn, It is sooo embarrassing moment to have. I have done it once before. I don't know how long my pant unzip but once my colleague told me, I fell so embarrassed. Usually people won't tell you unless they knew you and closed enough with you. Or if you have a naughty friends, they just shout it to tease you.

I've told my boss before. And yeah, it's kinda embarrassing to tell them, but it's so much better then them walking into a client and the client noticing it!

It's rare but it happens, usually not at work though. Actually the worst thing was when I was wearing a skirt, came out of the bathroom, the bottom of the skirt was stuck in my underwear. Somebody pointed it out to me just as I noticed that something wasn't right. Sometimes I tell people. Depends on what it is and who they are and where I am.

I've seen that before too - and I'll tell the person if they don't feel the draft. I always check my skirt when I leave the bathroom because I don't want my big hiney hangin' out there for all to see!

Actually, it's a little embarrassing if someone notices and tells you. But it's VERY embarrassing if you go around like that all day and people just kinda avert their eyes so they aren't embarrassed too. I tell people so they can fix it.

I usually tell people if i notice their fly is down. I appreciate it when people let me know - I'm embarrassed at the time but appreciate they didnt leave me and my granny panties flying in the wind! The exception to that is...if the person who's fly is down has made me really mad at the time (i know i did this recently) I was mad for some reason other than him being rude to me and sitting in my office chair...of course his zipper down was at eye level and i didnt tell him i figured if he was gonna be rude he could walk around with his undies showing.
