Oh dear! So on way to in laws. DS 4months in back, DP driving so I can express. DS wakes after an hour to spectacularly fill his nappy - complete Apoocalypse requiring a stop at the services. I took DS into the MacDonalds to change him leaving DP to scrub the car seat. Had to wait outside the changing loo and noticed a few looks but assumed this was due to a poo soaked and smelly baby. It wasn't until DP came I join me that he pointed out my top was pulled down and as I was wearing my home fashioned "expressing bra" (sports bra with nipple holes cut out - means I can express without having to hold the pump). This meant I was nipples out in MacDonalds!!! The shame! Feel this is a low point in terms of my modesty and self esteem! grin Anyone care to share theirs?....

Sorry, i have no similar story but this is awful and hilarious in equal measures!

Oops shock

Urrrm... No such stories I don't think. I know I'm unladylike and can't be trusted so I always wear modesty shorts under dresseswink

Once DS did undo my maxi dress straps but I only flashed my bra to the female school receptionist and it was a very un noteworthy bra

Oh my god. People may have thought you were some kind of pervert. It's not often you see a bra with nipple holes.

I have also flashed in McDonald's...
We needed to go into town when my DD was about 3 days old and ended up at McDonald's. I wasn't used to feeding in public so fed her under a blanket, only to flash my entire boob to the whole restaurant and everyone walking past on the busy high street when trying to put it away. I didn't bother with the blanket after that!

Thank you mrsGSR was starting to feel like a "pervert"!!

MrsGSR Fri 08-Aug-14 13:36:40

Let's just hope they don't have cctv!

Charingcrossbun Fri 08-Aug-14 13:39:34

Oh god!!! I hadn't wen thought of that! It's pretty likely they do isn't it!! confused

I was chuffed that I didn't have any accidental exposure issues when feeding my three, then I went on the Furious Baco rollercoaster and my boob fell out when it went upside down, thankfully after the photos were snapped!

I am no longer so smug about avoiding accidental flashing, god alone knows how many people looked up at that coaster to see me fly by, boob waggling in the breeze...

Nothing huge in public but I remember an incident at home when DS was about 2 weeks old.
I was still bleeding very heavily post birth and while breast feeding him knew I'd had a sudden gush.
If I popped him off the boob to go and change in the loo he'd roar the house down.
So I kept him latched on while I made my way to the bathroom, and at the same time my post birth bladder decided to fail on me.

I sat on the loo, peeing, bleeding and feeding at the same time, sweat running off me (I always sweated buckets when I fed at the start) and wondering what the hell I had done having a baby!

Forgot the time I answered the door to a charity collector with both boobs out.

I flashed my DH's colleague. I was feeding DS in the reception area of DH's work and he came over to chat and admire baby. He didn't know I was feeding baby at the time and leant in really close to get his attention. Which he did and DS turned right round with a big milky smile exposing my whole boob while colleague was approx 6 inches away. So cringey.

walde Fri 08-Aug-14 13:58:34

Cringiest thing I witnessed was a lady being exposed from the waist down on a train. A man went to use the toilet and it was one of those new trains with swishy doors that slide into the wall. It must not have been locked and the door disappeared magically into the wall leaving her desperately looking for somewhere to hide whilst pulling her pants up. It was awful. The train was so busy there were loads of people with no seats so were standing in the corridor. She managed to close the door and hide for a bit but when she came to leave we were all still stood there. Picturing her neatly trimmed muff. Oh dear, it was 15 years ago and I still cringe for her.

Oh my story wasn't a parental low. Sorry!

spritesoright Fri 08-Aug-14 14:58:36

Oh no, poor you. My 2 year old managed to pull down my skirt whilst dragging herself on it when we were on holiday. It was by a fairly empty pool but still.
Other than that just the usual covered in sick or poo and not realising straight away. Was at the park with newborn DD and toddler and I heard someone say, "Oh that baby's been sick all over its poor mum's back". It took me a second to realise she was talking about me. In her defence she did come over to help.
I was just asking the other day whether it is possible to retain one's dignity throughout motherhood.

Answered the door to a courier while holding DS2 (forget how old he was - a few months I think as he's now 6 months) and got a bit of a funny look off the guy but couldn't think why. He went to get the delivery (quite a large box) and I popped back in to put DS2 down only to realise I still had my t-shirt tucked up at one side from feeding DS2 and the funny look had been due to my somewhat pendulous left boob swinging freely in the breeze when answering the door grin.

NorthEasterlyGale Fri 08-Aug-14 15:11:24

I should also add that we live on a very busy road next to some traffic lights with only a small paved area and a low wall between the house and the pavement / road, so all the folk stopped at the lights or driving past also got an eye-full grin

I was on the beach with DP, DS, DM, DDad, and Dneices x 2.

I was undressing as had my bikini under my clothes and kids wanted to go into the sea, DNeice 1 has really long hair so I asked her to put it up in a bun, wye much pouting and whining, I was so distracted talking to her I took off my bikini top and had the bottoms half way down before I realised everyone's shock face and me stripping naked in front of hundreds of families. Poor DDad was mortified, DP and DM were on the floor laughing blush

Charingcrossbun Fri 08-Aug-14 17:50:17

Thank you ladies! Making me feel a little better!
Walde I once had a similar experience on a packed last train home only it was a couple having sex in the loo! Poor things had to do the walk of shame when some else demanded to use the facilities (this is not a confession btw that time I was just an onlooker!)

Hurr1cane Fri 08-Aug-14 18:20:05

There was a thread about someone post birth or something very tired who got undressed at the side of a public swimming pool and her DH shouted "your minge"

**details may be slightly different

Once I was at the pub waiting for DP to finish work, it was almost last orders and I was shattered and nipped to the ladies.

I walked in on some man getting oral pleasure off some woman by the mirrors.

So I walked straight back out and went and sat downstairs quietly when the landlord asked what was wrong and I looked at him and said "I've just seen someone's penis in someone's mouth in the ladies"

He marched to the toilet and the woman legged it followed by the man trying to tuck himself away.

He then turned back to the landlord and said sorry and tried to shake him hand!!! shock

The look of utter disgust on the landlords face at the palm that had just been goodness knows where still makes me laugh today.

The same night there was some woman flashing her boobs every time someone took her photo. hmm

I was sober. It wasn't a fun wait.

Merrily feeding dd aged 12 wks in holiday chalet with full glass front (to appreciate the view) when postman came, 'covered up' my two totally exposed boobs by holding up baby in front of me, but she was small enough to just cover in between.

Best bit was the following day, it seems me and the postie were on the same schedule and it happened again!

Seems I will never learn.

Charingcrossbun Mon 11-Aug-14 19:38:57

Hehe little! I reckon posties probably have lots of similar stories! Thing is at least it was obvious why your boobs were out! I wasn't feeding DS and whilst hopefully people would have assumed the bra was baby related without the pump it could be a little inexplicable!

Shopping trip with DS, not long after DD was born and I was still bleeding

We went to the loos and they were packed, me and DS went in the same loo, I was changing my towel when DS said loudly mummy why are you putting a nappy on???
Your a big girl mummy do your wee wees on the toilet you don't need a nappy on

I could hear the giggles outside the cubicle confused

When I came out of the toilet, a little red faced there were about 10 women stood there trying to contain their laughter, I couldn't keep a straight face myself and burst out laughing ....... As did everyone else grin

Haha oh dear! I remember back when my son was younger I was watching him play at the park then all of a sudden he runs up to me and pulls my skirt down and exposing my thing! But that's not all... My thing was on the wrong way round!! Sigh, just shows what sleep deprivation does to you don't it.
