A Japanese cultural trope often seen in manga and anime series that take place in a school setting, measuring day is the students' annual full physical examination. This usually takes place during the course of a whole day and is often used for fanservice. Since MostWritersAreMale expect lots of [[GagBoobs jokes in which certain physical quantities]] of (female) students get compared--or where one of the girls gets a chance to really freak out about her weight problem, imagined or not. Conversely, a lack of growth, embarrassing or inappropriate underwear, or an inappropriate body ''under'' the underwear are also sources for potential angst, making measuring day a special trial for a WholesomeCrossdresser or a SweetPollyOliver. In addition, there's the usual [[AllMenArePerverts group of guys]] that always try to [[ThePeepingTom peek]] on the girl's examinations.

* Occurs in both ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' and ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' by Creator/{{Atlus}}. In both, the characters have been getting into dangerous situations and one of the characters suggests a full physical examination to check for side effects, and in both the girls compare their cup sizes, declaring a "winner". In ''Devil Survivor'', there's an option to peep if you choose to skip your own exam.

* ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' features a omake built on this concept, Examination Day. All Sekirei in the city are required to report for physical exams, which involves bikinis and competition over bust size. The [[ACupAngst flat-chested]] villain ends up leveling the building after [[BuxomIsBetter the heroes]] discover her dropped bra and wonder who such a tiny thing could belong to.

* ''Webcomic/KarinDou4koma'': While the other girls compare bust sizes, [[CuteGhostGirl Ran]] briefly becomes a skeleton with glowing eyes to terrify some boys trying to peek.
* In one episode of ''InfiniteStratos'', due to the frequent attacks on the IS Academy, the Academy decides they need to increase the number of prepared defenders, so they have all the students get measured so they can get them into [[PoweredArmor IS Suits]] of their own. IS Academy happens an all-girls school...except for TheOneGuy, Ichika. And, of course, it's he who gets roped into measuring the girls. Fearing [[PervertRevengeMode retribution]] from his UnwantedHarem, he tries to do the measurements with his eyes closed. Unfortunately, he accidentally gropes the girl he's measuring, whose squeals attracts his harem anyway...cue OhCrap from Ichika.

* In ''Manga/SlamDunk'', Aouta tells Sakuragi about a Measuring Day that took place when he and Akagi were children. Akagi is revealed to have been quite the JerkAss to Aouta back then, much to Aouta's PlayedforLaughs anger - and the focus switches to the eavesdropping Akagi and Kogure, with an ''extremely'' embarrassed Akagi pretending that he never was that much of a jerk.
