A female character's skirt or dress being lifted by the wind; sometimes it can instead be done with a ManInAKilt. May or may not result in a PantyShot, depending on the presence or [[GoingCommando lack of underwear]], [[ShesGotLegs the angle]] it's seen from, and the victim's reaction time (for some reason, they always tend to be quicker on the draw when it's seen from the front). Bonus points if the wind is sudden and unexpected, causing the woman to shriek and try to push the skirt back down. Oftentimes the woman actually enjoys the experience, or at least the attention it gets her. RuleThirtyFour most definitely applies here as the subject is FetishFuel for a fairly wide audience.

The TropeNamer and most iconic example, of course, is Creator/MarilynMonroe in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch'' standing over the subway vent (see picture). Which is often parodied by having the character adopt Monroe's pose from the scene.

Despite all this the trope isn't exclusively female. Male versions are known to exist with a ManInAKilt as well.

* During the ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' episode, "The Scary Principal!", said Principal chases a group of hamsters through the school hall. His speed creates a wind-tunnel which in turn causes a girl's skirt to blow up. While she reacts quickly and nothing is shown, it's still cut from the English dub.

* A 2007 Ukrainian advertisement for Russian telecommunications company Beeline includes a scene with several couples dancing, cutting to a very low shot just as one dancer performs a twirl that makes her dress fly way up. In one version of the ad, this dancer is wearing white panties, while in a second version with a slightly different voiceover, she [[GoingCommando isn't wearing any panties at all]]. When thats version hit the internet and quickly became quite widespread, the company responded to the ensuing scandal by claiming that it was the result of digital image editing.
