Have You Ever Split Open Your Pants?

A friend recently split her jeans while bending over to pick up something. Oops!

Yes, I did split my jeans open and it was terrible. It happened when I went out shopping and was wearing the absolute tightest jeans I own. They are zip around jeans and have a long zipper that starts in the front, goes all the way down around the crotch and up the rear. Well, while in a store and standing in line to pay for my purchase, I dropped something. After stooping down to retrieve what I dropped I stood up and the zipper sprung open, unzipping all the way down the front, around my crotch and partially up my rear. Luckily the zipper only unlocked and did not break, but I was exposed from my navel on down and, being very tight, had a difficult time getting them zipped shut again!

Yes, I am a member of the pants splitter club too. Just earlier this year my husband and I decided to go out for the evening and I dressed to kill. I wore my absolute tightest black leather jeans. It was a miracle I could squeeze into them, let alone get them zipped shut and buttoned. Well, that didn't last too long for as when we got to the restaurant and I went to sit up on a bar stool, those leather jeans split wide open, starting at the crotch and going damn near up most of my rear! After hearing it rip and feeling it do so as well, I looked down and could plainly see my red thong busting out for all to see. How embarrassing! Thankfully I had a long coat to put on and cover up as we made a hasty exit.

Someone really needs to check themselves if they do.

Some friends and I went bowling, and I was throwing my first ball and slipped. I went down all the way, and my pants ripped straight across the butt cheeks (below the pockets)! The fabric was flawed evidently, because I had just bought them that day and they weren't tight! It was so embarrassing, but hilarious. Thank goodness my friend had a skirt in the trunk of her car - but I got to finish bowling the rest of the night in knee high men's socks! haha

Yes--I split a tight pair of jeans while dancing in a club in Rosarito. Luckily, I was able to put a friend's shirt over myself while I walked back to the hotel to change. How embarrassing! And I loved those jeans.

Yes, once in the car on the way to work. I had to staple them together once I got to the office. :oops:

It was in college. After my classes were done, I headed out to my car. When I got in and sat down, they split open! Drove straight home after that. So glad it didn't happen in class.

Yes I have! Actually I was bending over to pick something up, and they ripped in the back, then I went to sit down on a cloth folding chair and it ripped underneath me. lol! I'm only like 100 lbs, too.

This happened at my boyfriend's mom's house while passing out Christmas presents to his family. As i bent down to grab a gift, my zipper that was at the back of my pants broke and split. I realized this after my his brother (and now my brother-n-law) loudly commented on my black thongs.

Yes I did and it was awful. I was at work and went to sit down and the inside seam around the knee split a bit. After a moment the split just ripped straight up my paints to the crotch. I couldn't stand up so I had to ask my male co-worker who sat next to me to run out and get me safety pins.
