* Referenced in the 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".
* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' has Dracula's brides topless when they molest [[KeanuReeves Keanu]]...err...Jonathan Harker. But they get tops on in the broadcast TV version. It is also noticeable that there are five major female characters in this movie, the three brides, Lucy, and Mina. Of these, only Mina doesn't have a topless scene (she does have a transparent nightgown scene, though), incidentally, the only one played by an American actress.

* An underwear sales presentation for the shopping channel Creator/{{QVC}} showing two very attractive women wearing hideously unflattering undergarments went viral on YouTube. When the British sales pitch reached QVC viewers in the USA, it provoked lots of complaints. The reason is apparently that both models had very visible erect nipples under their vests. This highlighted the gulf between British and North American social attitudes to visibly erect female nipples under clothing; it's no big deal here but is apparently almost as bad as toplessness to the USA. [[note]]American style guides for women's clothing do not like this ''at all'' and consider it socially unacceptable.[[/note]]. Strangest of all, [[http://www.insideedition.com/headlines/12976-curvaceous-qvc-lingerie-models-gain-online-admirers-real-women-real-curves this American website]] ran an edited excerpt from the show but still considered it necessary to run a censor bar over the chest of a woman who was otherwise fully covered! Link is presumably NSFW in the USA but OK everywhere else....

* Iskai in ''{{Albion}}'' have four breasts. Many females wear diagonal bras at most that leave two of them exposed. All details are visible, on all sprites and cutscenes.

* Jack in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' wears nothing on her upper body except for a rope... bra... thing. One that only covers the nipples, really. It is possible to imagine that she'd need to wear something to prevent uncomfortable bouncing, but a rope bra? One would imagine that very uncomfortable and not quite functional for that purpose.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' averts this with some of the romances. [[ButchLesbian Sara's]] is especially notable, as it features Sara and the female Inquisitor naked from the waist up and facing the camera with absolutely everything visible.

* Surprisingly averted in ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' where Perseus's mother is shown topless while she's breast feeding - her nipple clearly visible - and the film was rated PG. Then again it [[ValuesDissonance was the 80s]]. The 2010 remake featured no toplessness nor nipples.
