* Sarah Connor (the German singer, not [[Film/{{Terminator}} the other one]]) once caused a scandal that involved this. She performed at WettenDass in a dress that was half-transparent on the sides almost all the way up to her waist. Needless to say that she couldn't wear any normal underwear underneath it, but it looked like she [[GoingCommando didn't wear any]]. After the MoralGuardians reared up the day after, she explained that she wore skin-colored panties complete with pictures of said undergarments (not [[{{Fanservice}} being worn]], though, and of course [[{{Squick}} washed]]).

* Likewise, the diving suit briefly worn by Rikku in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' has beige-colored segments in front of her crotch and on her ass, making it look like she's wearing a lot less than she actually is.

* TruthInTelevision: Stage performers often do this for {{Fanservice}} or to stay warm.
** It is especially hard for nearsighted people to tell that these are clothes.
** Happens a lot in the UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade for the latter reason, mostly during Broadway and dance performances. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86zg3y1NMDQ Most of the time, it's hard to tell.]]
** Often used in non-X-rated television programs and movies during sex scenes.
** For dance recitals, many dancers wear flesh-toned leotards under their costumes so they can change full outfits without taking clothes off.
** Cheerleaders at late-autumn high school UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball games will wear this sometimes - much to the comfort of cheerleaders and annoyance of sharp-eyed of male bystanders.
* A lot of figure skating costumes have flesh-colored bits so that the skater can stay warm while having an outfit that looks {{Stripperiffic}}.

* {{Cosplay}}ers portraying characters who show a lot of skin like [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Laharl]] or [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai Shiranui]] tend to wear flesh-colored body stockings in order to preserve their modesty (and because conventions have rules against showing too much skin). Then there are the characters where it's ''required'', like [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia]], whose "costume" is nothing more than strategicaly-placed fur, and the various [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Titans]], who don't have any clothes at all.



* And of course, nude-coloured underwear is available for wearing under clothes where any other colour would show through because of its difference from your natural skin colour.
* Occurs often in ballroom dancing, less for modesty than because it's a lot easier to glue rhinestones to nude mesh than to bare skin, and the more the merrier where rhinestones are concerned.



* This is essentially the idea behind certain types of pantyhose, to give the appearance of bare legs without actually necessitating exposing that much skin. Most of them are at least somewhat transparent/translucent and colored so as to either a) make it clear that you ''are'' wearing pantyhose (patterned, or a color that clearly is not the same as your skin tone) or b) match your own skin tone, thus making it look like you're "not wearin' nothin'" to quote an old pantyhose commercial.
** For a long time in Britain, mass distribution meant women could get only two colours of tights/stockings: black, and a shade known as "American Tan", which was roughly flesh-coloured, tended to khaki, and was held to be unaesthetic and unappealing.

* There was an {{omake}} feature in the ''HeIsMyMaster'' manga highlighting the girls' gym uniforms, which included peach-coloured spats (chosen specifically so that the artist could draw the girls at particularly risque angles and get away with it).

** Given a particularly funny lampshading when her roommate, a Squirrel Girl (no, not [[SquirrelGirl that one]]) named Amy, borrows a pair. She breaks the fourth wall to call the surprised members of the audience perverts while pulling on the waistband of her pants.

* Referenced (but not shown) in one of the fnal episodes of DadsArmy as the costume for Lady Godiva in a festival. The episode punchline is when the "Fleshings" are worn by [[TheGhost Mrs Mannering]] much to the humiliation of her husband.

* A variant in [[http://www.moillusions.com/bath-towel-illusion/ this optical illusion]]: at first glance, it looks like a picture of a naked woman hanging up a see-through towel, but a closer look reveals that she's actually wearing a dress and the dolphins printed on her towel just happen to be "strategically" positioned.

* During the SilverAge, the ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'' [[MonsterModesty wore nothing but a pair of underwear]]. Since it was the same color as his body, it looked like he wasn't wearing anything. [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks These days]], he's [[FullFrontalAssault completely naked]], but with BarbieDollAnatomy for good measure.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': The suit Rikku wears when you first encounter her on the Al Bhed ship (not when she joins your party permanently) fits the trope.
