If you haven’t noticed already, we here at Fleshbot are pretty into upskirts, downblouses, and all manners of bodily slippage. But there’s more to it than what the paparazzi sees! Sometimes a nipple will make it on TV or film, and that, to us, is magical.
Maybe the Nikka Costa nipslip was just an illusion, but it definitely got us thinking about all our favorite instances when clothing, movement, weather, or camera flashes caused some bit of flesh to escape its owner and/or censors. After doing some research, we were surprised to discover that this business is damn near omnipresent. Our selections might not represent the most iconic examples, but they’re ones that we really enjoy (read: could easily find visual evidence of online).
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Where do we begin on our journey? We might as well start with one of the greatest movies of all time: “Return of the Jedi.” Perhaps this isn’t the most graphic boob slip in the history of film, but the fact that it happened in one of the world’s most beloved sci-fi films pushes it to the top of our list.
Oona Oola, one of the unfortunate dancers doomed to entertain Jabba the Hutt, decides that she would rather face digestion in the stomach of a rancor than deal with her master’s affections, and in her final moments of resistance, her tit flops out.
As far as we’re concerned, accidentally nudity is the only thing the “Star Wars” trilogy was missing.

Although this moment will forever be seen as the perfect synthesis of personal power and pussy flashing, it’s been suggested that Sharon Stone didn’t intend to show so much on film. She asserts that the director had her remove her panties because it was messing with the lighting (Worst. Excuse. Ever) and that they wouldn’t shoot anything too revealing. We don’t want to sound like skeptical shmucks, but Sharon’s statement could be part of the hype around this scene. Regardless, no one will deny that this has to be the one of the most-paused moments in film history.

There are just so many damn examples of accidental film nudity that we had no idea what to show you. There’s Claire Danes in “Polish Wedding,” Milla Jovovich in “Chaplin,” Winona Ryder in “Square Dance,” and countless others. But we felt that to truly capture the absurdity of the slippage, we should discuss this moment in the 1981 Chevy Chase film “Modern Problems.” After Chevy’s telekinetic powers make Patti D’Arbanville come, she rolls over and accidentally lets her nipple show. We’re going to assume that Chevy knew about this but was super down with it. That’s how Chevy rolls.
“Boys (Summertime Love)” – Sabrina
Yes, even music videos have hidden moments of fleshy goodness. Even though we just saw Rihanna’s nipples in a white, tube-y number, we don’t want you to think that this is anything new. We’d like to take a moment to remind you of a little number by Sabrina from 1987 called “Boys (Summertime Love)” in which Sabrina spends the majority of the video wearing a white, strapless bikini. When does she show too much? The real question is when doesn’t she show too much. As our editrix said when we first found this video, “We can’t remember the last time we saw a girl in a strapless bikini that couldn’t possibly stay up under the weight of a few drops of water… and that makes us really, really sad.”

America’s Got Talent
Nipslips on primetime network television? How could this be? All we can say is that this woman’s act was so gosh darn enthralling and entertaining that the judges, producers, censors, and everyone else at NBC let it pass by unnoticed. That’s really something! We’ve done the research that proves America loves nudity way more than it loves actual talent, and this is one of the few outliers.

NBC? More like N Be Trippin’. Anyway, Lady Gaga is no stranger to scandal, and she’s definitely comfortable pushing her bodily boundaries, but this was most certainly an accident. However, if it wasn’t, then this is a picture of three of the best performers in the world.

Attack of the Show!
See? This kind of stuff happens everywhere to everyone. Even tech savvy networks like G4 make mistakes and let Sara Jean Underwood go on TV with bits of her nipples hanging out of her Wonder Woman costume. Actually, now that we’ve written that down, it seems a little too perfect to be an accident. If you were trying to boost ratings, and you knew that everyone had the hots for one of your anchors, and you had to pick a single moment in which to satisfy all of the fans’ desperate yearnings, wouldn’t you engineer something like this? It’s moments like these that we expect to be suddenly shut down by a member of the Nudity Illuminati.

Not only was this a rather dramatic bit of slippage, but Khloe Kardashian’s response was not at all what we expected. She. Was. Stoked.
The minute it hit the internet, she tweeted: “My mom just called me saying my nip slip is “all over the internet!” Ha! Is it weird that I love it?! Who knew nipples were so special?” She then proceeded to tweet about it for the rest of the day. A few days later, however, she retweeted this Bible quote: “1 Peter 5:7~ Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.”
Was He watching for your nipple, Khloe? Perhaps not. But everyone else was.
