I was on a long flight recently sitting next to an attractive blond woman in a blazer and skirt. She fell asleep and in the process of wriggling around, managed to hike her skirt up far enough to reveal that she was a) commando and b) actually a redhead, not a blond.
I looked carefully (at her face) to figure out if she was really asleep and I am convinced she was, so I put a blanket over her lap and went back to my crossword puzzle. When the flight started preparing to land she woke up, tossed the blanket off then realized her state of dress. She gave me a look that implied it was all my fault then quickly grabbed the blanket back and covered herself while she adjusted her skirt.
So two questions for the ladies:
1. Have you ever accidentally revealed your true colors in a similar fashion?
2. Did I do the right thing, or should I have woken her up and told her she needed to attend to her clothing? Or something else?

1. Can't really say showing my true self in that fashion. I would probably be embarrassed, which might be why she gave you a weird look.
2. You did the right thing. It's not like you wanted to embarrass her. You just gave her a hint in a subtle way to fix herself and in a small way protect her.
I think what you did was very courteous and kind of you which showed YOUR true colors :)2
