AIBU to wish the floor would open and swallow me whole?

I've just had to present to a group (15 people) of young 20 somethings all keen and excited about possible careers with our organisation....

20 minutes in to the presentation, my bra gives up the ghost!!! It was a strapless bra so I had to try and skillfully tuck it into my trousers so that it didn't fall on the floor, but spent the next 40 minutes very aware I was hanging free and easy!!!

OMG - I cannot stop thinking about it - do you think they'd notice?

Nah, I don't think they'd have noticed. Not at all [straight face emojicon]

Depends. Were you by any chance wearing a very large thick baggy jumper, or were you wearing a slim fitting T shirt? Did the bra wind up sort of flopping around your waist?

I am wearing a loose fitting black t-shirt(kind of a swing top), I definitely developed an extra bump round my waist.

The shame...

It's so unusual that I would have thought it would not occur to any of them that that happened! Also this is a moment to be thankful they were probably spending the entire time whatsapping each other on unrelated topics. Think you'll have got away with it.

Oh sorry had got it into my head they were school kids - prob no whatsapping went on. But still fine I'm sure!

Oh dear grin

Social situations like this and how people react are so interesting to me. It would have been so easy to excuse yourself for a wardrobe malfunction and sort yourself a bit and then finish grin

And I don't mean that in a WHY DIDNT YOU WAY!

Sorry strapless bra? Too work? You like living on the edge clearly. I have to strap mine down with the strongest of scaffolding.

I'm sure they were so enraptured in what you were saying none of them noticed a thing. Although I am now trying to work how you skilfully tucked it in your trousers, was there a shimmy in there?

MTBMummy Wed 09-Sep-15 16:52:47

Why didn't I??? I don't know.

I was in a complete panic, trying to keep them engaged in the topic, and aware thy every time I had to bend down to my laptop (at knee height! Who puts it there with no clicky thing) that it might fall out and how the game away.

Not my finest moment blush

I was trying to look trendy, I work in that type of environment, and I hate bra straps sticking out.

There may have been a shimmy and a wiggle

Can't stop laughing ??-sorry x

When I was newly pregnant and no one knew, I was in so much pain from my freshly gigantic boobs that I popped to the toilet during a big work event to undo the clasp on my bra. Ahhhhh bliss. I slunk back to my table trying to keep a low profile, only to be told I had to stand up and address the whole room, norks akimbo.

Not my finest hour.

Hobbes - I'm so glad I'm not alone.

Agadoo - a gin has helped me see the funny side.

Although have to face them all again on Friday - I think I'll make sure I'm wearing a spots bra or something that's going to need bolt cutters to be removed

If it had happened to me they would of heard two thuds on the floor.

How did it go today when you saw them again ???

What was the gender balance and how thick or thin was your blouse?

I was once one of the audience on a similar occasion and afterwards the men all avoided each others' eyes and kept quiet. But I overheard some of the women giggling about it.

I take it that spots bra = sports bra!
