Nancy Grace denied suffering a wardrobe malfunction on ABC's Dancing With the Stars Monday night.

"When we were doing our hop scotch portion of our dance, there was a little bit of movement but it did not rise to a wardrobe malfunction,” Grace told reporters backstage after the show.

Despite the photographic evidence, Grace insisted, "We have got every precaution known to man in this dress right here. I’m talking industrial strength precautions. So there may have been a little bit of, as [partner] Tristan [MacManus] said, jiggling.”

The judges and host Tom Bergeron joked on air about the inadvertent flash.

"On the European version that would be perfectly fine," quipped Bergeron.

"Nancy, vivacious, alive, and confident. It was a bit top-heavy at times, my darling. And I got an eyeful! I couldn't miss that," judge Bruno Tonioli said. "But it really is great to see you taking over the dance floor and performing."

Grace and MacManus scored a 21 out of 30 points.

On Twitter and Facebook, the HLN host thanks fans for their support -- but did not bring up the style slip-up.

"Thnk u love! I worked so hard! RT “@lisarinna: GO NANCY! Good girl! #DWTS you did it! You Rocked the Quick step!! So proud of you!!!" she wrote to former contestant Lisa Rinna.

"DWTS I had a blast... We love you all! I hope u loved it! Pls vote: 1-800-VOTE-405 & go online: www.nancygrace.com t.co/r6I0S3MK," she added.
