* ''Film/{{Psycho}}'': While Creator/AlfredHitchcock famously denied viewers any glimpse of real nudity in the [[ShowerScene iconic scene]], he actually snuck in an out-of-focus glimpse of exposed breasts (of body double Marli Renfro, not of actress Janet Leigh) in the shot when the girl's hand grasps the curtain.

* ]]Wrestling/TerriPoch Tori]] once tried to walk to the ring topless, but the referees refused because of this trope. She was only shown from behind until a man gave her a shirt to wear.

* Referenced in the Creator/EddieMurphy film ''Film/{{Boomerang}}'' where a perfume commercial (featuring a character played by Grace Jones) is being edited and the main characters go to great lengths to figure out whether a shot of her bare chest features a nipple. Eddie Murphy's character insists it's just a shadow. Eventually, the editor does a close-up and declares "It's a nipple, 'cause I'm drooling".

* The right for women to go topless in Ontario was a controversy in the early 1990s. In 1991, then-student [[http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/women-s-topless-court-victory-20-years-later-1.1026403 Gwen Jacobs]] took off her top in public on a hot day. She was arrested and fined but ultimately acquitted (five years later), and the laws changed. It's legal for women to go topless in public in Ontario, but it's rare, due to this trope and the continued sexualization of women's nipples. At the time, a picture of a topless Jacobs appeared in many news sources, usually uncensored.

* 17-year-old Creator/OliviaHussey was forbidden to attend the premiere of ''RomeoAndJuliet'' (1968) wherein she played the female lead, because of the nude scene. [[InsaneTrollLogic That's right, she was judged too young to see]] ''[[InsaneTrollLogic her own]]'' [[InsaneTrollLogic nipples on screen.]] The same scene shows Romeo's bare butt too... which of course she saw anyways while they were filming.

* 17-year-old An urban legend claims Creator/OliviaHussey was forbidden to attend the premiere of ''RomeoAndJuliet'' (1968) wherein she played the female lead, because of the nude scene. [[InsaneTrollLogic That's right, This was brought on by papers mistakenly reporting her as being only fifteen at the time. But she was judged too young to see]] ''[[InsaneTrollLogic her own]]'' [[InsaneTrollLogic nipples on screen.]] The same scene shows Romeo's bare butt too... had turned sixteen, which of course meant she saw anyways would have been allowed in. What's more is that she could legally have viewed the film while they were filming.underage if a parent or guardian accompanied her.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Wrestling/StacyCarter Miss Kitty's]] infamous flashing at Armageddon 1999 was meant to play this straight, but accidentally subverted it. The plan was for her to do a striptease (and her lingerie was padded to avoid being see-through due to wrestling in a pool beforehand) - and when she pulled the bra off, the camera would [[ToplessnessFromTheBack be to her back]]. If Sgt Slaughter missed his cue to cover her with a towel, only the live crowd would see anything. Due to a mistake in the production room, the camera going out live was instead at the front, and Miss Kitty had no idea the entire broadcast saw ''everything'' - until she came backstage to a round of applause from the locker room.
* Wrestling/DawnMarie flashed on an episode of Smackdown, but her nipples were covered by [[SceneryCensor the ring ropes]] to buy into this trope.
* ]]Wrestling/TerriPoch Tori]] once tried to walk to the ring topless, but the referees refused because of this trope. She was only shown from behind until a man gave her a shirt to wear.
