* "Yvette, The French Maid" (pictured above) in the movie ''Film/{{Clue}}''. She also wore a relatively modest version of the sexy French Maid's outfit. [[spoiler: Although she apparently wasn't REALLY French, or a maid...]]
** Given that you could use her... assets as a place to set your drink down, provided you didn't mind a little spillage from the bounce and jiggle, the fact that her French maid uniform is considered "modest" should tell you something about this trope.

* Magda in ''TanzDerVampire'' doesn't wear the traditional frilly maid uniform, but she's put into an equally objectifying tavern-wench costume that suits her role as the inn's girl of all trades.
* Jacob, the CampGay, [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdressing]] housekeeper in ''[[Theatre/LaCageAuxFolles La Cage aux Folles]]'' is an amusing, rare, (technically) ''male'' example and possible AffectionateParody of this.

* You'd expect this trope a lot in porn, and there is, although it's more common in softcore erotica. The mainstream, tame soft-core ''YoungLadyChatterley'' from the 1980s includes ''two'' examples of this type, slightly averted since the maids are [[BritishAccents Cockney]], not French. But the trope is definitely played up for its erotic appeal, as the maids flirt, flounce, and repeatedly lose their uniforms.
