* Had its peak period in the West during the late 1990s and early 2000s, where a look involving cropped tops and extremely low-waisted trousers or skirts (for the really daring, below the top of the pelvis) became popular on the street and practically enforced for young female entertainment personalities. Died out because of how unflattering it was if you didn't have an absolutely flat stomach (the term "muffin top" was coined).

* In ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar'', the woman who plays [[spoiler:the bear pianist's human form]] in the play "The Bear Pianist" wears a midriff-baring tank top normally.

* After Jenny Quantum from ''Comicbook/TheAuthority'' aged herself to look like a young woman in her twenties, this became her dress code almost exclusively. At one point she got "tired of menstruating" and de-aged herself to look about 11. The bare midriffs stayed, however.
* ''Comicbook/{{Powers}}'' has Deena Pilgrim, who as a detective is allowed to come up with her own dress code. As she remarks to her pissed-off partner Christian Walker early on, while trying to get him to forgive her for going through his things (she thought he had powers): "And I wear these little belly shirts. That's gotta do something for you, right?" It's far less {{Stripperiffic}} than normal for a comic book, but she wears midriff-baring shirts almost exclusively. Some of the regular heroines of the ''Powers'' world go for the more traditional comic book heroine outfits, though.
* ComicBook/{{Huntress}} in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'' bared her midriff despite a full body costume and cape. Hey, if you did 700 sit-ups a day to maintain those gorgeous abs, wouldn't you? An irritant for many fans who remember the time Huntress got ''shot four times in the stomach.'' The belly window varies DependingOnTheWriter and artist, and Creator/GailSimone said that her costume was going to be changed to not include it a few issues into the 2010 relaunch. Unfortunately, the title was cancelled mid-story. As of Huntress-Year One, her midriff is properly armored.
* The Comicbook/ScarletWitch wears one during the Kurt Busiek/George Perez era of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers''. They attempted to {{justif|iedTrope}}y it with her saying she was going back to her gypsy roots, yet the outfit would have easily made her ancestors blush.
* Stargirl from [[ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica the JSA]] has worn a belly shirt since her first appearance in her short-lived solo book. She once justified it to Supergirl by noting that it sometimes distracted male opponents.
* After nearly 70 years of wearing a one-piece bathing suit, ComicBook/PhantomLady started doing this.
* Several female ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' seem to be going this route.
* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/0/03/Supergirl_Vol_5_54_Virgin.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100513211832 Post-Crisis Supergirl]] and some of her animated counterparts of Franchise/TheDCU wear midriff-baring shirts. Cat Grant often mocked her by wearing that kind of outdated clothes. In ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'', Linda Danvers also bares her midriff.
