* Whenever Britt is cast as a player character in WebVideo/EpicNPCMan, this trope usually comes into play in some way or another, much to her character's chagrin.

* The fantasy role playing game ''TabletopGame/HackMaster'' spoofs this trope with an item called the "chainmail bikini of remote eye-gouging." This bikini is not only enchanted to provide actual protection, but the wearer can say a magic word that causes it to cast [[EyeScream an eye-gouging spell]] on [[PervertRevengeMode anybody staring at it]].

* In the Magazine/DragonMagazine comic ''Libram X'', Jen's clothes are shredded by mooks when she's first dragged into the Mazeworks. Fortunately, Ace knows a tailor-slash-armorsmith who ''really'' loves his job and has a few styles preprepared. She turns down a conventional set of plate armor ("too heavy") a noblewoman's outfit ("too bulky"), and a cowgirl outfit ("too... tight") before settling on this style.

*** As all of the armor is now unisex. You're only going to see boob-curves if your character is wearing something flexible and form-fitting like leather armor (even then, it's still sensible). The major exception to this is the "Hollow Warrior" armor set, which really doesn't cover that much at all. The pants/shoe component is just one shoe (and no pants!) and the chest armor covers just the shoulders and upper chest. It doesn't look that skimpy on a zombie, but on a healthy human female it's hilarious.



*** By the time when the Ringed City DLC was released, [[spoiler:the Desert Sorceress Set makes a return, under the name of "Desert Pyromancer Set".]]

* ''Manga/UQHolder'' has a non-combative version. When entering in a hoverbike race, everyone is wearing swimsuits rather than protective gear (though the do wear helmets). [[LampshadeHanging Kirie points out how dangerous that is]], only for Mizore to inform her that, due to the use of magical protection in clothing, the current trend is to see [[RefugeInAudacity how skimpy people can make the outfits and get away with it]]. Plus, if the outfits fly off, it'll just boost the popularity of the race, so the sponsors are all for it.

Armor in popular works--particularly in the SpeculativeFiction genre, but sometimes even works with a real historical setting--is often designed to show off its wearer's secondary sexual characteristics without regard for how that might compromise its protectiveness. Every artist or writer seems to come up with a different HandWave for why a character would choose this instead of boring regular armor, whether it's supposed to be easier to move in, or less stifling in a hot climate, but if you ''really'' want to know why this convention is used, the answer is {{fanservice}}.

Instances of this trope in real life occur only when the armor is purely ornamental, has some sort of ritualistic importance, or is simply not intended to completely protect the wearer. Roman gladiator armor, for example, was less concerned with providing optional protection than with making their fights entertaining to watch. CompetitiveBalance was ensured by each gladiator type having its own combination of armored parts and weak points, while the large amount of exposed skin allowed the audience to admire their muscular bodies and clearly see whenever one of them was wounded.
