Janet Jackson wasn't the first to experience a wardrobe malfunction.

An accidental or supposedly accidental failure of clothing to cover parts of the body intended to be covered.

Primarily used for referring to the exposure of breasts/areolae, but also acceptable for genitals, buttocks or underwear.
Her dress caught on the door knob and ripped. The resulting wardrobe malfunction was much to the delight of the guests. I bet she wished she had worn a bra and underwear under her dress.

Term created by Justin Timberlake trying to be intelligent. He failed. Miserably.

1. An excuse for uptight censors to impose "decency" on the public so they don't lose sponsors who push suggestive beer, car and lingirie ads on us.

2. An unintentionally funny explanation of VH1's future "most shocking TV moment." See also, "Soy Bomb."
Oh, no! A wardrobe malfunction! Let's call Mr. Coors and apologize for the indecency right away. Stern - you're fired!

When the hinges of the door of your garment storage device have rusted and it fails to open correctly.
I can't come in to work today, I have a wardrobe malfunction and can't get to my clothes. Honest.

It appears that this word was coined in the US to refer to Janet Jackson's breast falling out. The UK version would be when Judy Finnegan's breast fell out at the BAFTAS
Why did American people make such a fuss about Janet Jackson's accident? When Judy Finnegan had a wardrobe malfunction, the Brits were just mildly amused.
