* During the period in the '00s when it was fashionable for women's shirts to stop at or just above the waistline, most of ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'''s female cast reflected this on a regular basis. Nowadays it's only occasional, such as [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3443 here]].
* ''Webcomic/RoomiesItsWalkyJoyceAndWalky'':
** Robin [=DeSanto=]'s default top is a short orange shirt; at one point she lampshades the exposure by telling Joe "Check out these abs!"
** Sal's preferred look when she's in alien-fighting mode; her casual clothes bounce back and forth on whether they do.
** Joyce normally wears a SEMME T-shirt, but her hypersexualized duplicate Anti-Joyce cuts away everything on her shirt except the yellow stripe across her breasts. Later on, when the real Joyce has a bit of a breakdown and decides to let herself go, she dresses just like Anti-Joyce.

** Some secondary characters in ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie''. Lisa that has a black bikini top and ripped blue jeans and the Powerline dancers. These are justified for their work, but Lisa is the only female student with this look.

* [[FatGirl Eugly]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', because she's too fat for the shirt to fit her.

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': Ariel in her mermaid form wears a SeashellBra. Although technically this is "bra only" -- she doesn't wear anything on her fish half. Her sisters (and in fact almost all mermaids) also wear {{Seashell Bra}}s.
* Melody in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'' to a lesser extent. Her full clothes ''do'' cover her midriff, but after she becomes a mermaid her shirt turns out to be to short to conceal it without her pants.
* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'': Jasmine's outfit, which codified the BedlahBabe trope for modern audiences.
* Nakoma in ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''. She has a crop top and skirt that shows only her midriff.
* Chel in ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado''.

to:

* ''Creator/{{Disney}}''
** Gideon the cat in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' wears a purple shirt with loose sleeves that is too short to cover his belly.
** Mr. Smee in ''Disney/PeterPan''. In fact, the pirates always hoist him up by his shirt, exposing his belly. In the scene when he first comes out, a pirate grabs him and starts belly-jabbing Smee with his sword, causing Smee to suck his belly in to avoid the sharp and painful sting. However, he's an elderly, plump man, so it's not played for {{Fanservice}}.

Note that simply showing the belly and a little skin around it, like a slightly open shirt, does not count. But a dress with a large section around the belly cut out does.

does. Nor do completely naked characters count - although their midriff is bare, so is the rest of their body.
