* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Patty the Daytime Hooker went to Catholic school back in TheEighties, and she transformed her uniform into the "sexy" version. 20 years later, she tries to invoke the trope again, but [[FetishRetardant it doesn't]] ''really'' work due to the toll that time (and working in TheOldestProfession) has taken on her body.

This trope is slowly becoming [[DiscreditedTrope discredited]], as it becomes seen as part of the "once common but no longer generally required" subtrope of HollywoodDressCode, since many real Catholic schools have changed their uniforms to unisex khakis and polo shirts, especially as more schools realize that what looks pure and innocent on a 9-year-old takes on a different context (whether intentional or not is irrelevant) when worn by a 17-year-old after the "summer growth spurt."

** In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the canonical setting of the Convent School of the Spiteful Sisterhood of Seven-Handed-Sek (SHS) is expanded upon and is revealed to have the Discworld's equivalent of Catholic Schoolgirls. Compared to the Assassins' School, SHS is more mainstream and typical of the sort of general education the Disc gives to its daughters. Who are tended by kindly and caring nuns with a deep commitment to educating their charges and turning out well-adjusted young ladies. It's not ''their'' fault they get girls like [[FightingIrish Shauna O'Hennigan]] and [[FieryRedhead Rebecka Smith-Rhodes-Stibbons]].

When this outfit shows up in films and TV shows, it's almost always done through DawsonCasting. Likewise, when it's done by [[SexySchoolwoman fully-grown women]], it's almost always a case of FanService in action.

In Britain, where the trope is not associated with Roman Catholicism to the same extent (due to uniforms being much more common in both public and state schools), this look is known as the "[[Film/StTrinians St. Trinian's]] Girl", after a series of BoardingSchool movies by that name. This trope has an Eastern equivalent in {{Joshikousei}}, a fetishizing of Japanese schoolgirls wearing [[SailorFuku another distinctive uniform.]] This trope's SpearCounterpart is arguably the Mormon Missionary: young men often from sheltered backgrounds living in close quarters with other young men doing God-knows-what behind closed doors (usually religious study but don't tell that to a fetishist). Though in this case, the outfit itself isn't sexualized (usually), but the idea of a repressed young person with a simmering sexuality below a prim and proper exterior is all too familiar.

Regardless of the (admittedly [[{{Squick}} squicky]]) reasoning behind it, the trope has led to the fetishization of the standard "school girl uniform", Catholic or otherwise, frequently [[CustomUniformOfSexy modified to Stripperiffic specifications]]. This outfit usually consists of a button-up shirt, sometimes worn with a tie (in more exploitative media, the shirt is worn [[VaporWear without a bra]], and knotted so high up that the girl in question is simultaneously [[BareYourMidriff baring her midriff]] completely and showing off a ''lot'' of [[ImpossiblyLowNeckline cleavage]]); usually a blazer or jacket of some kind, frequently a couple of sizes too small; a short, pleated skirt that may or may not be in some kind of plaid; [[ZettaiRyouiki knee-high socks or stockings]]; and often [[GirlishPigtails pigtails]]. Expect {{panty shot}}s to be a frequent occurrence (if she's wearing any). Needless to say, any girl who actually shows up to class like this would be thrown in detention faster than you can say "{{Jailbait}}." The uniform will sometimes be depicted as being worn [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack even outside of school]].
