Whether it is a reunion taping or a costume party, the Real Housewives always try to bring their fashion A game. However, in each city, there have been some major fashion mishaps along the way, and unfortunately for them, all of their wardrobe malfunctions are caught on camera and will air on Bravo for the rest of their lives.

Brandi’s Sober Tank, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

When Brandi Glanville made her return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last year, she wore a shirt that said “It’s Not Fun To Be Sober” while she was with Kim Richards … who is sober. The tank is risky enough to wear on national television and not offend people (not that Brandi is concerned about that), but wearing it in front of Kim was downright rude.

Sonja Forgets Her Pants, The Real Housewives of New York
No one throws a costume party like Sonja Morgan, but when she bent over during her French masquerade ball, she realized she wasn’t wearing half of her outfit (or underwear) and her butt was exposed. It was an iconic moment that launched one of the following season’s taglines, “Sometimes Sonja has to go commando. What can I say?”

Cynthia’s Reunion Exposure, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

While Kenya and Porsha’s fight during the season 7 Atlanta reunion was insane, the real show was happening behind them when Cynthia’s nipple came out of her dress after Porsha leaped over her to get to Kenya. This should be a lesson for all Housewives to never wear a low-cut dress to a reunion.

Erika’s Fancy T-Shirt, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Dorit has had plenty to say about Erika’s fashion choices this season (#pantygate), but it all started with Erika’s t-shirt dress that she wore to Dorit’s birthday party. The rest of the ladies were in their fanciest party attire (did you see Lisa Vanderpump’s gloves?!) and Erika looked out of place in her t-shirt dress. There’s no doubt in my mind that it was as expensive as everyone else’s outfits, but it was too casual for the occasion.

Kelly’s Dress Disaster, The Real Housewives of Orange County

One of the only things that wasn’t controversial about Kelly Dodd’s first season on The Real Housewives of Orange County was her fashion. She always looked very put-together … until the reunion. It’s unclear if Kelly’s dress broke or if it just didn’t fit right, but the one-sleeve blue outfit did not offer her (or her breasts) any support as the ladies attacked her.

Ramona’s Lingerie-Inspired Look, The Real Housewives of New York

Despite her daughter Avery’s disapproval, Ramona wore a shirt that looks more like it belongs in the bedroom than at a party when she was out in the Hamptons during season 1. Even though it was by the designer who was throwing the party, it was not an appropriate choice, especially for a 50-year-old woman.

Brandi’s Nip Slip, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Coming full-circle back to Brandi and Beverly Hills, she had a nip slip during a fight with Kim on the season 5 finale. The embarrassing moment was cut short when Kim pointed out her dress was more revealing than she planned. “Before you say anything, your nipple is hanging out,” Kim said to her on-again, off-again friend.
