OOPS: Ekaterina Rubleva of Russia loses her top as she performs with Ivan Shefer during the Ice Dancing Compulsory Dance at the European Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki.

Russian figure skater Ekatarina Rubleva has suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the European Figure Skating Championships.

During her routine with partner Ivan Shefer, Rubleva's dress was inadvertently lowered, revealing her right breast and making life difficult for the rest of their performance.

Consummate professionals, the pair continued with their dance with 23-year-old Rubleva even managing to keep smiling throughout.

The extent to which it helped, or impaired, their score with the judges can't be known but with a score of 29.04 they skated away with 12th place.

Watch the pair in action below:
