** In the final book, Harry's naked when he wakes up [[spoiler: in the AfterlifeAntechamber at King's Cross]] and doesn't get clothes until some materialize for him out of nowhere. In the film, he's already wearing clothes. Inverted with the locket scene; while in the movie the illusions of Harry and Hermione are clearly naked, no mention is made of how they're dressed in the book. Subverted in the scene where Harry dives into the lake, where he wears boxers in both the book and the film.

** Also just before Harvey [[spoiler: disposes of the safe with Susie's body in the sink hole]], Ruth allows Susie to inhabit her body and have sex with Ray before she moves on. The film changes it to just a kiss between Susie and Ray.

* In-universe in ''{{Film/Sirens}}''. Norman Lindsey is doing a painting of the Sirens from Greek mythology, who are usually portrayed as naked seductresses. One of his models Giddy prefers to keep her clothes on, so her siren is to be wearing a dress. [[spoiler: She later decides to pose nude afterall]].

* In the aftermath of UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution, Grecian-influenced sheer gowns became the thing for women's fashion, the trend lasting through UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars and RegencyEngland. By the Victorian era, this fashion was looked back upon as a scandalous OldShame, which presented a problem for painters and artists wishing to depict the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The result is Victorian art in which the women of the Napoleonic era are given [[HollywoodCostuming anachronistic clothing more suited to Victorian standards of propriety]]. An example is ''Literature/VanityFair'', which was illustrated with the characters wearing contemporary Victorian fashions because the author didn't have "the heart to disfigure my heroes and heroines by costumes so hideous." Another example is the 1868 painting ''[[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/Henry-Nelson-O%27Neil_Before-Waterloo_1868.jpg Before Waterloo]]''.

* In the ''VideoGame/DragonsLair'' cartoon, Princess Daphne's clothes change to make the show more kid-friendly and because she's more active than she was in the game. Instead of a revealing one-piece swimsuit and a transparent veil, she wears a simple dress.

Added DiffLines:

* Between their initial appearances in ''VideoGame/FateExtra CCC'' and ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', Meltlilith and Passionlip both got alterations to their outfits that make them less risque, such as Meltlilith's bottom half appearing to be an actual garment now (albeit still a bikini bottom) instead of a c-string while Passionlip actually gets a shirt as opposed to two thin straps (barely) holding in her massive GagBoobs.

** Prior to this, Franchise/WonderWoman had been given a complete overhaul in JMichaelStraczynski's short-lived ContinuityReboot. The new Wonder Woman outfit featured a leather jacket and a pair of pants to make her seem more "modern", but both of these elements were ditched for the ''New 52'' relaunch of the series.

* The failed ''[[Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot Wonder Woman]]'' pilot for NBC originally had the heroine wearing a pair of [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/802916/thumbs/o-WONDER-WOMAN-ADRIANNE-PALICKI-facebook.jpg rubbery blue pants,]] but outrage from the fanbase led to the inclusion of a more comic-accurate version of the iconic costume. A third option, a pair of [[http://www.comicbookkid.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/adrianne-palicki-wonder-woman-pilot-shoot-01.jpg pants that were darker]] and not as rubbery was received a lot better from several groups (both those that disliked the first pair and those who want Diana to have a costume that's a little more dignified than her typical swimsuit look,) but clearly sticking with that made too much sense.

* In the Disney film ''{{Disney/Pocahontas}}'', the title character is depicted as a nubile young woman wearing a buckskin dress. When she met John Smith in real life, she was a child and she was wearing, well, [[NationalGeographicNudity nothing]]. In her society, children customarily went about nude, weather permitting, until they reached puberty. And if she were the age which she's depicted as in the film, she would have still been topless.

* In real life Pocahontas would actually have been topless. [[{{Disney/Pocahontas}} The Disney film]] naturally gives her a dress.

* Elsewhere in the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}, ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' gave Hawkman and Hawkgirl costumes that were much more modest than the usual costumes worn by [[ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} the original comics versions]], who tend not to [[WalkingShirtlessScene wear more than the bare minimum]] above the waist.
