Jessica Alba’s Wardrobe Malfunction Is a Classic Mom Mistake

Style Savvy 10

jessica albaJessica Alba was out in New York City last week, in the rain, and had a classic mom moment. The 31-year-old mother of two was trying to wrangle an unwieldy stroller for daughter Haven, 1, and had trouble attaching the car-seat part to the stroller-with-wheels part. Jessica may have had an umbrella man and some auxiliary help, but that didn't stop her from having the mostly unavoidable stroller-fight wardrobe malfunction.

I think most moms will look at this photo and think, Been there, done that, honey. As Jess bent over to wrestle with the baby carriage, her blousy white shirt slid down and showed off her black bra and cleavage. Whoopsies!

Jessica quickly slipped on a leather jacket after she revealed too much, and went about her day.

Good thing Ms. Alba was wearing a bra or this story would've been very different. Moms, no matter if they're a celebrity in Hollywood or an anonymous lady in Gymboree, have to deal with these stupid little wardrobe malfunctions all the time. Kids are always pulling on Mommy's clothes, or forcing them to bend over, or run, or crawl, or fly when they least expect it, and sometimes, Momma's clothes aren't up to the challenge.

Because no one wants to run around in hooded sweatshirts and track pants all day, you gotta pay a price to the wardrobe malfunction gods when you wear stylish clothes while parenting, but if you ask me, it's absolutely a price worth paying. Looking good, Jess.

What wardrobe malfunctions do you suffer most as a mom?

honestly why would you post a picture of a woman bending over showing her chest when she is obviously trying to care of her child. some dumbass snapped the photo trying to make a buck and you have to exploit.

and we thought this site was a safe haven for moms

I agree with Silverdawn. That's a pretty crappy picture to post here. Shame on the person who took it and shame on you for exploiting her like this.

BTW, I have that car seat/stroller set and it is awesome!

It's just a little cleavage, only a complete prude would class that as a malfunction.

This is a malfunction? Then i must be having a malfunction all day long. Every mom who cleans house or has a physical job does this all day long no one cares.

Well, I still nurse, so obviously the nip slip is an hourly occurance in my life.  They're irrepressible.  And then there's the plumber's butt-- kid hug-induced or otherwise. :/

No matter how high my pants start, baby chasing always ends in crack slip. My body shape encourages it. I have a huge butt but it doesn't bubble. Nothing for my pants to hang on to! Lol
