Lingerie Football nip slips and bare asses – a.k.a. wardrobe malfunctions

The most popular post ever on Tech-media-tainment is one I did on Sept. 5, 2009, on the start of the Lingerie Football League’s first season.
Like any good journalist, I found an angle that others were missing. The LFL features attractive women in bikini lingerie playing tackle football. At least one article about the first LFL game made a brief reference to “wardrobe malfunctions,” so I played that up in my article and found a photo to illustrate my point.
I wrote:

Just as fans of Nascar watch lap after boring lap of race car driving to witness an occasional wreck, spectators at the first Lingerie Football League game on Friday were hoping one of the beautiful lady players would lose a bra or panties during the action.
They got their wish Friday at the league’s debut game in Chicago.

I later posted an article on the second season of the LFL about two players getting pantsed.
Until today the only photos of LFL wardrobe malfunctions I’ve seen were players exposing their bare rear ends. But Pete Ray posted two photos Wednesday of breast exposure during what looks like the Oct. 23, 2009, game between the Los Angeles Temptation and the Dallas Desire. (See photos above and below.)
Ray posted the photos to his blog Life from All Angles in a set titled “Lingerie Football League Season 2.” But since Los Angeles and Dallas don’t play this season until Dec. 3, it’s clear that these pictures are from season one.
Nine of the photos elsewhere online are credited to photographer Ian Halperin for the UPI. I can only assume that he took the two nip slip (nipple slip) photos posted here.
Ray does not provide credit for the photos on his site, implying that he is the photographer. He also doesn’t provide any cutline or caption information to explain the photos. Not cool.
The interesting thing about the two shots discussed here is that one Dallas Desire player (top) went au natural under her bikini top, while another player (second from top) wore pasties, either to prevent indecent exposure or chafing.

Nov. 3, 2010, update: Busted Coverage yesterday posted two more LFL wardrobe malfunction photos. (See below.) These shots were taken by photographer Darryl Briggs of Dallas. Busted Coverage believes the photos are from the Sept. 3 game between the San Diego Seduction and the Dallas Desire.
