Bras are great for holding our boobs in place, making things more comfortable, and sometimes making us feel super sexy. They’re awesome… until they’re not so awesome. Bras get annoying when they dig into your skin, make you sweatier than you should be, or peek through your clothes. But all of that is nothing compared to some of these embarrassing bra moments.

The Whole Class Saw She Stuffed Her Branimbly_bimbly_bitch: 6th grade. Bra stuffer. Teacher asked me to answer a question. Everyone turns to hear the answer. People giggle. Someone asks me strait up if I stuff my bra. I look down, WHAM. Tissue paper just burstin' out. Cried myself to sleep. Blushing even now, 8 years later. Source: iStock
She Forgot A Sports Bra[deleted]: I wore the wrong bra to gym class in high school once. It was the day we did jump rope exercises. One bounce and my tits were out. My friend laughed so hard that she fell to the floor crying. I couldn't properly jump rope because any bounce and they popped out. Source: iStock
She Refused To Wear A Bra and Regretted It Laterbehemot1: When I started growing breasts I didn't dare to buy a bra because I thought it was embarrassing, because having breasts was embarrassing (not really sure about that logic), so I tied a scarf around them. Then once in gym class the scarf untied itself and fell out. Pretty sure no one saw me though.. And pretty sure I bought a real bra after that. Source: iStock
A Dude Undid Her BraLady_Underhill: At my high school graduation I was wearing a dress with spaghetti straps and a strapless bra. After the ceremony when I took of my robe, one of the guys decided to fake a hug and unclasp my bra. I had to ask my poor, teary-eyed principal to re-hook it for me. Source: iStock
The Dog Blew Up Their Spot[deleted]: My boyfriend's mom found one of my bras after their dog carried it down two flights of stairs from the attic to the living room. Source: iStock
It Broke Open During Classbrobdingnagian_brain: Worst was probably junior year of high school. I was taking the ACT and my bra randomly snapped open. It was really loud, so everyone heard. Then later when I tried to awkwardly fix it during a break, the overzealous proctor asked me if I was cheating, and the guy next to me was like, "No, her bra is broken..." Woo. Source: iStock
Her Snap Broke At The Worst Timerightsidejane: Was wearing a front snap bra, snap broke. My hefty ladies came busting noticeably out while I was interviewing someone. To make the moment even sweeter, I had been wearing a white silk blend tee. So it was painfully more obvious. Source: iStock
She Had To Find Her Bra In Front Of Her Whole Familyfxiangel: One of my first bras was hot pink. We were meeting relatives for the first time and my sister decided to freeze my bra. I woke up in the morning to having everyone around the kitchen when my uncle pulled it out of the freezer and I had to claim it. Horrible moment. Source: iStock
Everyone Saw Through Her Shirtcecikierk: When I was in high school gymnastic team, our standard issued leotard was dark purple and modern gymnastics leotards are made from thick stretchy velvet, so it didn't matter what color bra we wear underneath. On the day of the team photo shoot our coach for some reason felt that our normal leotard doesn't look good enough, so she dug up some white Lycra leotards from probably the 70's and made us wear that instead. I was wearing a leopard print sport bra and a photo of me with leopard print bra showing through ended up on our local newspaper. Oh and I was wearing black underwear too. Source: iStock
Her Bra Stuffing Came Out[deleted]: Grade 7. Padded bra. The stuffing came out over the top of my shirt. Everyone noticed. Source: iStock
