Share: your most embarrassing feminine moment

Good day VivaBellas! I’m feeling very upbeat and because I’m feeling so, I want to tell you about my most recent embarrassing feminine moment. Heheh. And why do I think it most apt to share it today? Because it’s a Monday!

So recently, I was in a queue with my family, waiting for some tickets. It was a long queue and I specifically remember there were some men standing beside and behind me. All of a sudden, my son sneezed and his nose was dripping wet. He needed a tissue paper and I had to give him one very quickly.

Maybe because it was pretty early in the morning and I was still in a daze. Or maybe my vision was blurry. Or maybe I just wasn’t paying attention. Whatever. I unzipped my bag quickly and from my bag organizer, I whipped out a pack of what I thought was the tissue paper. Uh oh…it felt like the tissue pack but it wasn’t. It was my disposable sanitary pad! I even starred at it for a few seconds before realizing what it was. And of course, this was in FULL VIEW of everyone standing beside and behind me. I’m pretty sure they SAW. After I gained my senses and that was by no means a fast, lightning speed process, I put the sanitary pad back in my bag, pretended like nothing was wrong before calmly taking out the tissue paper for my son and helping him to wipe his wet nose.

It was an embarrassing moment all right…but I consoled myself that the people who were queuing are broad-minded people and so, this is no big deal. But it’s probably a good excuse to get myself one of those pretty sanitary pad holders. Heh. And come to think of it, this is truly nothing compared to the one time when I forgot to zip my skirt and the back of my panty was in full public view for a good hour when I walked around the shopping mall and then traveled back home.

So you ladies have any embarrassing feminine moment or moments that you want to share on this Monday with me?

    I have one. I was in the office, and been working for like half a day, when my “new” boss (it’s a guy) came over to me and quietly whispered to me that my skirt zip is open (the zip is at the back). I am not sure if my under wear was seen by all, I didn’t want to ask or know.. ?

    Yes, I guess it’s truly worth it to invest in pretty looking underwear for such occasion.


  2. Michelle says:

    Hmm…. My most embarrassing moment that I can remember was the first time I felt “brave” enough to leave the house without any underwear on. I made the stupidest decision to wear a light flowy skirt.I was on the street stutting my stuff like I’m “all that” when all of a sudden a strong wind blew lifting my skirt to the skies and showing my privates to everyone there. I wanted the earth to split up and swallow me. Needless to say that’s a decision I never made again.

  3. Renz says:

    lol. There had been a number throughout the years, but my most memorable boo-boo was when I went to the restroom, and didn’t realised that I had accidentally tucked a part of my dress into my underwear after I had exited. And went around the mall for about an hour before catching the sight of my underwear playing peek-a-boo through a reflection on a mirror…

  4. sesame says:

    Haha…that’s a good idea! But now I always triple check that I’m properly zipped up.

  5. sesame says:

    Woah…I have considered not wearing underwear in the past but after reading your story, I’ll never do it.

  6. sesame says:

    This has happened to me but luckily I caught sight of it in the toilet.

  7. Soos says:

    Skirts are dangerous, aren’t they? About a year ago, a woman stopped me in the mall to tell me my skirt had somehow slipped under my slip, which had hiked up in the back. Yikes!

  8. sesame says:

    Yeah…especially those with zip!

  9. AtelierGal says:

    Hmm… Many years ago I went out only with one eyebrow drawn. I tend to multi-task so that explains my clumsiness on the physical front. I kept getting stares the ENTIRE DAY, only to find out the reason when I got home at night, 12 hours later. I was on the sales front at that time at a tourist hub and not one kind soul ever came up to let me know.

    I noticed that when I go out with my female friends, they never have the decency to inform you if you have a lipstick on your teeth, or if your foundation doesn’t match with your neck line. It’s pretty selfish, IMO!

  10. pf1123 says:

    Pardon me, but it was shocking to me that one would consider not wearing underwear. How come?

  11. pf1123 says:

    For me, sometimes it is just too embarrassing to tell the other party such things. Unless it is something very bad like they have stained their skirt/pants or tissue paper bits on their faces.

    I once tried to tell a girl that her foundation is too light coloured for her skin tone and she put on too thick a layer. She got offended instead of appreciative.

    I also find it difficult to tell off some guys who dig their noses or pick food off their teeth (with bare fingers), in front of me. I’ll just look away and hope they get the idea.

  12. pf1123 says:

    I was in primary school and there were 2 occassions. The back of my skirt was accidentally tucked into my shorts which I wore inside the skirt. I fell off a chair in class once and had my skirt flipped over.

    Another time was in Secondary school. It was raining and very windy, then my skirt flown up. That was while I was going to the bus stop after school with everybody watching.

    Occasionally, I stained my pants or skirts during my period. Hopefully not many people seen that.

  13. AtelierGal says:

    I think it depends on your tone, and the timing you choose to tell your friends. I rather have it pointed out than embarrassed myself in front of strangers.

    Whenever I noticed a flaw in the bathroom, my friends chose to act ignorant all the time. “Oh, issit? I didn’t notice!”

  14. koa says:

    maybe you should get a small pouch to put your sanitary pads.

  15. sesame says:

    Your story reminds me of the one time I wore wrong earrings during work and nobody said anything to me too. I think they thought I was trying to be hip or something but I really made a mistake cos it was so early in the morning and I couldn’t see properly.

    I guess some pple will tel you…some will not. For foundation color or lipstick on teeth, if it’s my good friend or someone I know pretty well, I’ll tell the person. For eyebrow, I’ll most probably say even if I don’t know the person well.

  16. sesame says:

    Haha…cos the dress or skirt was too tight. Anyway, that was a very old consideration.

  17. sesame says:

    Now that you mentioned this, I remember one time I was in Nepal and changing in a small little kitchen after rafting and couldn’t balance myself well. Fell out of the kitchen with my bum exposed in full view. Lucky there were only 2 girls around but they were laughing their heads off at my clumsiness.

  18. sesame says:

    Yup, I think I should do that. ?

  19. Blovetbeauty says:

    Omg. I have so many embarrassig moments I am almost immune to it. Sometimes, I am in a rush to do my makeup and forgetting to rub in my sunblock properly, I have patches of white on my face- worse, i wore black eyeliner once and my face has streaks of smudged liner:( my gawd wanted to cry when I saw my reflection- hahaaa

  20. Vivian says:

    I had a few embarrassing moments so far from staining my skirt due to heavy menstruation flow to forgetting to zip up my pants. But the one that takes the icing was when I accidentally walked into the gents in a crowded mall. When I turned around and walked out, I swear that the whole world was watching =S

  21. Nero says:

    I was on my period and i had the most incredibly busy and “runny” day ever..
    Left home very early, did stuff the entire day only to end up late in the night in the hospital because my bf was not feeling good..

    To cut it short: i fell asleep in the car on the very way home and stained the hell out of the seat – and everything in between.
    Noone but my BF saw it but i was so so so incredibly embarassed i kept apologizing for days XD

  22. Miss Vinny says:

    A couple of times:

    wearing a slightly sheer blouse with a black bra. *face palm*

    accidentally, walking around with mousse on my hair(didn’t massage it in). didn’t know until people in school told me.

    had eyeshadow plastered on my face by mistake ‘cos i was in a rush while applying makeup!

    dress was kind of thin, air suddenly got cold andddd…. my nipples hardened and poked through it. =__=;; I quickly “folded or creased” my dress a little and rushed to somewhere warmer.

    bra kind of broke while i was outside. Maybe that’s why i don’t like wearing bras with metal so much anymore. Thankfully, I’d a safety pin then and managed to “repair” it temporarily until I got home. And that’s why I stopped buying expensive bras that cost from $50 to $100++ because I found out that they were often no better than the cheapo brands, in terms of workmanship. Quality of cloth may be good and patterns may be nice but if the metal snaps or stitches give way, what’s the point?

    Have gone into the male toilet by mistake, too… as a kid. And sometimes, in other countries if the female toilet is locked. Because there is no way i can hold myself for hours.

    Of course, have had panty flash before. I don’t wear fluffy skirts made of very light material anymore. In SG where the wind really blows, don’t want to be caught with yet another panty flash.

    And also, once while eating… I accidentally dropped my food under my shirt. ? How did I get it out? I simply stood up because there is no way I’m reaching underneath, in front of everyone!

    Well, at least I’m lucky my underwear has never broken and dropped off in public! xD That’s why I don’t pick flimsy underwear, no matter how good it looks as the stitching can be quite sparse. ?

  23. sesame says:

    Patches of white? I’m suddenly reminded of Nicole Kidman. ?

    I get streaks sometimes…and as for black eyeliner, that’s one of the reasons I hardly use it.

  24. sesame says:

    I think we do walk into the gents sometimes out of mistake…but I sometimes can’t help but think they’re quite pleased when that happens. I can’t say the same when a man walks into a ladies though!

  25. sesame says:

    Oh dear…the stain must be quite hard to remove isn’t it? But am sure your BF was understanding.

  26. sesame says:

    I laughed about the food dropping under your shirt. It has happened to me too! LOL. And recently, I forgot and wear a black bra with a sheer top too. I think it didn’t turn out bad but I just wasn’t aware till I went home to change.

    And talking about flimsy underwear, once the top of my swimwear came off while I was attempting butterfly strokes. Oh gosh, I didn’t know where to put my face. Lucky I was amongst friends and the guys didn’t see it. ?

  27. fwy says:

    I had the same experience when the zip behind my skirt gave way but I was only out of the house early morning & there wasn’t much people around. I am sure nobody saw & I pull out my blouse to cover my back & rush home to change. Another time I forgot to zip up the front of my 3 quarter pants after visiting the washroom. Luckily my blouse was long enough & I noticed it real quickly & walk over to a cafe, sat down, use my handbag as a shield, zip up then proceed to place my order at the counter.

    There was once when I had placed a sanitary pad into my pants pocket while serving coffee to a visitor to my office. Accidently the pad dropped out without me noticing. Luckily, the visitor was a lady & she quickly caught my attention. I thanked her with embarrassement before my boss went in the meeting room.

    Alot of female friends and colleagues I know had the experiences of having their period overflow and stain their underpants or even skirts and pants.

    I guess it is common for ladies young or old to have some kind of embarassing situations which caught us offguard. We just learnt our lessons & try to be careful next time.

  28. Elaine says:

    I was out with my boyfriend at an outdoor cafe, surrounded by friends and strangers alike. I sat on his lap for a good while, there were no other seats. When I got up, someone said to my boyfriend, “Your leg is bleeding.” I had my period and it was very heavy. Everyone looked at his knee and then at me. Embarrassing.

  29. sesame says:

    I think we ladies have more issues to take care of and that’s why we face some of these embarrassing moments. Like you say, just need to be more careful next time. ?

  30. sesame says:

    Oh dear…I can totally understand the embarrassment you felt then. Well, the good thing is other people don’t always remember.

  31. pf1123 says:

    Now that everybody talks about their boo boos, more memories came to me…

    I think I had the zipper problem on my skirt and pants too. Split my shorts while having PE lesson.

  32. Renz says:

    For lipstick stains on the teeth, I’ll most probably hint or inform her, but foundation shades…its quite hard to tell that person if it doesn’t match, unless its my good friend or someone that I’m close to.
    Maybe they are not sure how to tell you or if you’ll be offended?

  33. sesame says:

    Haha…same here. After reading the comments, a flood of embarrassing memories came rushing back. ?

  34. Jen says:

    It makes you feel extremely sexy no matter what frame of mind, and its fun, nothing like a little sense of adventure :o) No one knows but you :o) USUALLY!!!

  35. Jen says:

    As a teen, I went to the swimming pools with my first boyfriend and friends… We were going down the funky water slides and he was behind me, he and many others got to see a big hole torn out of the BUM in my togs!!! That was awful…

  36. sesame says:

    Oh dear…I’ve got a number of swimsuits torn cos of slides too!

  37. anna says:

    i was visiting friends with my hubby and all of a suddent my friends husband noticed some blood drops on the floor..where i had stood moments hubby and that man’s wife all started talking about what it might be…that man said maybe my period started, i was in the next room so i heard and i grabbed a napkin, put it at my nose and said my nose is bleeding and just left in the car. i am embarrased to this day to see that family…the lady believed me but her husb. didn’t buy it.sooooooooooooooo embarasing….of course i was wearing a skirt and it was the first day and i wasn’t prepared for such overflow….i just wanted to die….

  38. sesame says:

    Oh dear…but actually there is nothing to be embarrassed for it is something biological and natural and not like you did something to create the bleeding. So don’t feel so embarrassed you see them…if they’re friends, they’ll understand perfectly.

  40. Mallory says:

    One of my most embarrassing moments was when I was in the parking lot at the mall. There were a bunch of people in the parking lot and as I was walking towards my car, there was a huge gust of wind and it pulled my dress right off of me. To make it even worse, I wasn’t wearing a bra or underwear that day so i was completely naked. One kind soul gave me their jacket so I will be forever thankful for them.
