Wardrobe Malfunctions: Vintage Almost-Dangerous Outfits (PHOTOS)

Today's bra-top wearing Miley Cyrus and pastie enthusiast, Nicki Minaj, come from a long line of women who dared to bear it all. Let's just say the sheer trend isn't anything new.

Check out the slideshow to see our picks for near "fashion fail" status.
