Italy has long been known for its TV shows featuring stripping housewives, but it seems one Italian woman couldn't wait that long to shed her clothes, although in this case the disrobing was clearly accidental.
An Italian woman is suing a designer who sold her a wedding dress which fell apart at the altar – leaving the bride semi-naked.
The 30-year-old woman says her big day was ruined. She burst into tears at the altar, the priest didn’t know were to look and some of the guests started laughing.
According to unlucky bride’s lawyer, his client is demanding €20,000 in compensation for the fiasco. The dress cost her € 2,000.
The name of the designer has not been revealed due to Italian privacy laws, but it's known that the firm is based in the Italian city of Rapallo.
The incident took place in 2006, but was revealed just recently when it went to court. The woman and her husband have separated since the wedding.
