* Generally averted in reality, however. While women seldom engaged in combat at the time armor was widely in use to begin with, what female armor ''did'' exist was no different than the armor worn by. The fact that a cuirass naturally curves outward, combined with the...pliability of breasts, means no real accommodation is even needed for the breasts. It just needs to be properly fitted to her measurements.

** The reason why AD&D 2 ''TabletopGame/DarkSun'' setting switched from planned frozen to scorched world -- hot climate allowed [[http://darksunart.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/243/ cover art]] with more skin.

''Dark Sun'' also included "scavenged armor" tables, so you could assemble a suit piecemeal... and basically make your own ChainmailBikini.

* ''Film/{{Ironclad}}'': Played straight and then for drama. Lady Isabel's impractical BattleBallgown is obviously designed more for {{Fanservice}} than defense, as it exposes the bare skin of her neckline and shoulders. Unsurprisingly, despite her cutting down several foes, she gets wounded in the shoulder and has to be rescued.

* ''Film/WarCraft2016'': Notably averted, especially considering [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarCraft the source material]]. Human women wear the same big bulky armor as the human men, which makes it easy to miss that half of Stormwind's army is female. Garona is given a reasonable breastplate when she joins the humans. Orc men and women universally wear very little armor.

* ''Literature/SchooledInMagic'': Emily sees a group of women wearing them outside Whitehall, protectors of their virginal sisters. She speculates it's merely to make a statement of their femininity, rather than offer actual protection.

* The page quote comes from this trope's parody/ShoutOut in ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''; being totally unfamiliar with any aspect of culture that doesn't involve fighting, two Zentraedi spies are baffled when they view the mysterious broadcast from the "Micronian" ship (an accidental leak of their new TV station and its debut show, a beauty pageant) and behold a model wearing a bikini. They naturally come to the conclusion it must be a form of armor, as it clearly doesn't cover enough to be a uniform.

** It also gets lampshaded by multiple NPCs, one human female questioning why the standard BLADE uniform is revealing as it is, and a Ma Non not understanding why his suggestion to make their company's male armor as revealing as the female armor to improve sales was promptly shot down by his human associates.
