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?

Well, there was the time I was going down a huge water slide at the water park.
And as I hit the water my top totally came off.
I didn’t notice it at first, but everyone was just standing there staring at me.
I then picked up my top in embarrassment and put it back on.

Can you tell me where Kim Kardashian’s dress is from? The one she wore to the Heatherette/Mac event.

I was snorkeling with a group on vacation once and felt something “brush” my skin. I looked down and realized that my halter swimsuit had come undone and was only attached around the neck. I have no idea how long I was swimming around like that, but really hope that no one else saw!!

I was swimming with my friend and sister at the local swimming pool last summer, and our friend was being a real brat. So this really hot lifeguard pulled me over and told me an idea for a prank I could pull on her, so that she would shut up.
Well, of course I did it! My friend got yelled at after I tricked her into breaking one of the pool rules. The lifeguard was still talking to us, and so spur-of-the-moment I decided to take a dive off of the diving board, just to show off. But when I hit the water, the bottom of my swimsuit slid down! I fixed it underwater before I could come up, but I was totally mortified. I am still praying that lifeguard didn’t see it!

I had so many tops and bottoms malfunctions because I really like playing in the waves and I wear usually the most exposing bathing suits because I like to get tanned as much as possible. A quite embarrassing moment tough didn’t include bathing suit-I was with a friend at the wilderness area on NY Fire Island, which is huge stretch of beach with no people or rarely seen nudist.So we were completely naked as well.The problem was that there were people walking from the nearby very crowded beach, so we hid a bit besides the dunes.At some point we decided to swim(naked of course) so we took the chance when there was nobody coming down and just ran in the water. The water there though is deep and huge waves break close to the shore. And I got surprised by one of them which knocked me down and dragged me into the shore and as I emerged, coughing and spitting water, I almost bumped into an older couple-the man seemed very nicely surprised, the woman looked horrified. Hope the poor guy didn’t get too much bitching because of me:)

Water slide = wedgie = ass exposure.

Tops that tie with a string + strong waves = boobie flash!

I was on a church camping trip with a group of young adults and we were out cliff jumping. After you jumped off the cliff and into the water the boat would come pick you up. I was a little scared so I decided to go last after about 7 other men and women had gone before me. I jumped off the cliff and as I came to the surface everyone in the boat had shocked looks on their faces. Apparently the force of the water had ripped my entire swimming suit off and I was completely naked. I never found my swimming suit and I had to ride back to camp in a towel with a bunch of embarrassed Christians looking the other way.
