First time wardrobe malfunctions and accidental exposures

First time wardrobe malfunctions and accidental exposures

I just wanted to ask you ladies or men (that have worn kilts, sarongs, etc) how do you deal with exposing yourself when you wear a dress or skirt the first time in your life? Did it bother you or not?

Just to share my own personal experiences, in the 7 years that I have worn kilts, I have had exposed myself countless number of times due to weather, slips and falls, walking up stairs and escalators and most recently fighting (an experience I'll share in a future post).

The first time this happened I was out at a busy shopping plaza with my ex-girlfriend Fiona (the one who forcefully introduced kilts to me) and the weather was really gusty dealing with wind gusts in excess of 50+ mph. Anyway, before we got out of the car Fiona told me that the kilt would be too heavy to blow up in the wind and not to worry about it. After we exited the car we walked about 200 feet from the store to the store that we were going to and before we made it inside the store, my kilt was completely lifted by the wind. At the time I felt that was the most petrifyingly embarrassing moment in my life. From that moment on everyone including my ex were laughing hysterically at me.


Moving forward to the present day, even though I'm not an exhibitionist, but now I have to say that oddly enough I don't feel ashamed or insecure about accidentally flashing myself when I wear kilts. In fact quite the contrary, I almost feel more liberated and empowered in a very uncanny way. Even though people still laugh hysterically, but now I realize that that is just part of the kilt wearing experience and that you really have to have a sense of humor about it.


Where were you and how was it like the first time any of you experienced a wardrobe malfunction or flashed someone in public for the first time? Please feel free to share your strories.

Did this happen in Scotland? I would guess not, a) because you say "kilts" (a Scotsman wears "the kilt") and b) in Scotland you would be more likely to be laughed at if you were NOT commando!

I wasn't wearing a kilt or anything...I don't own one... but one day, I was at the office, the zipper on my slacks gave out. the damned thing was wide open even though it was in closed position. A female coworker discreetly told me I was showing more than I might like, and when I looked down, got a surprise. My package was on display, and I was pissed off that a relative new pair of slacks failed in such a bad way and place.

Just before leaving that day, there was a note on my desk with a name, a phone number, and a "call me!" I had a fight to get into with a tailor first!

I was sailing on a boat that had quite a crowd on it, testing new sails. I climbed up onto a winch attached to the mast at about waist level, going up in one step and stretching my jeans very tight in the process. As I straightened up they split with a bang but not down the back, as would be expected. These split right down the front, from waist band to crotch, alongside the stitching where the fly reinforcing joins the main fabric. I was the centre of attention at the time because of what I was doing and suddenly the whole front of my jeans was wide open, with my goods exposed at eye level to the people on deck.

Hello Don C

I must say you are quite perceptive in remarking about Scotsmen saying "the kilt" in plural form (the interesting thing is that I'm usually the one that tend to correct grammatic errors, lol) and I also tend to agree somewhat about Scotland ridiculing people more harshly for not wearing a kilt in the regimental fashion. The one thing you forgot to mention however is that ladies in Scotland generally will tend to laugh when lads wear kilts in regimental fashion (mainly due to excitement and awe). As you can probably already tell, your question was indeed rhetorical. Thanks for asking.

Well Sansman I think that most slacks and dress pants tend to have rather flimsy zippers. That being said, I personally haven't experienced a wardrobe malfunction and/or accidential exposure while wearing pants or shorts (and I hope that I never experience having a wardrobe malfunction and/or accidential exposure in pants or shorts either). While wearing a kilt, there are certain scenarios and instances that can ultimately lead to a wardrobe malfunction and/or accidental exposure. Since kilts are durable garments, they generally result in the latter. The key to avoid accidental exposures is proper kiltmanship which is a skill that I'm working on to this day and a skill that I will continue to hone in the future.

Hello Rantalion. I'm sorry that such a mortifying experience has happened to you. Hopefully for your sake that will never happen again. I just hope that you didn't have to endure any legal ramifications as a result of this.
I wrote a previous entry titled "Double Standards" in a previous post to share one of the experiences that I had getting into trouble with the police, almost getting arrested as a result of that particular incident.

There were no legal ramifications.

I am a lifelong nudist, thousands of people have seen me naked. I don't care who sees what I have except that I don't want to get into trouble for it. In that particular case I was there in a professional capacity so taking advantage of the unexpected exposure was not an option. Also, suddenly being exposed like that takes one by surprize, so my instinctive reaction was to grab my falling out bits to cover up as best I could. If only I could have a do-over I would let my stuff fall right out and act as though I don't know it has happened.

On another occasion I was wearing old corduroy jeans and crouched down to grind a winch. My jeans split down the back from the waist band to part way down my thigh. We had a lady in the crew at the time and she stuck her hand inside my jeans to tickle my butt.

Hello Honk I just have one request. Can you be more specific with exactly what you don't believe, because I just learned about this website recently. I feel that this web forum is a healthy way to share my personal experiences pertaining the subject of the forum, which is not wearing underwear. I also happen to wear the kilt and have been wearing them now for 7 years. Thus, I think that kilt wearing is quite relevant to not wearing underwear as it is the way they are traditionally worn. On another note, I have no prior knowledge to the weblink that you had given me. Therefore, I have not corroborated any stories from other sites. I would encourage you to please respond to this message respectfully.
