Though common in anime -- JapaneseDelinquents (particularly in classic, older series) will often be seen wearing one under their coat or unbuttoned shirt as a visible cue as to their general level of badassery -- this is also a general Japanese cultural trope, often found in RealLife and applicable to women as well as to men. For female characters, however, a sarashi may also serve as an accessory to a potentially boring outfit, as an aid in {{crossdress|er}}ing, or simply as a way to prevent {{Gainaxing}}. In these cases the wrapping is pushed up a few inches to cover and flatten the chest ([[FanService usually]]), and the irony inherent in using such a traditional symbol of masculinity to accentuate or disguise femininity may be [[FetishFuel deliberately invoked.]]

** Auchenai Crypts, the male monks are running around bare-chested; the female monks are wearing what appear to be sarashi of the chest-wrap variety. [[FetishFuel Yeah]].

* Bandage-style wrappings seem to be a common fashion accessory in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. At least one character is seen wearing them sarashi-style. Prior to the timeskip, Ino wears them from her knees at least up to her midriff.
** This is most likely a case of extremely creative inventory management. For shinobi, all-purpose bandages can be used for everything from bandaging wounds to bracing sprains/breaks to using them to ensnare an opponent to passing secret messages to igniting explosives, and then probably about a dozen other uses. However, because a shinobi can only wear so many equipment pouches, and a lot of their equipment is fairly bulky, it makes sense to carry bandages already worn on the body.

* The githyanki of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' are sometimes depicted as wearing this kind of garment under their other clothes, or as the full extent of their clothes, particularly in the "Invasion!" metaplot exhibited in both ''Dragon'' and ''Dungeon'' magazines. Most often seen on their wizards in place of magic cloaks and robes, with runes of power and protection drawn along the whole length, enchanting them to protect as good as or better than most suits of regular armor.

* Katara from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' wears wrappings similar to this as underclothes. Although there is no {{Word of God}} about it, but since the show is set in a heavily Asian-influenced universe, and probably some time in the past before bras were invented, it's just assumed that women (usually) wear them with casual clothes or clothes that don't give any support in the ''Avatar'' universe.

* It has become common among female cosplayers to use a sarashi to conceal their chests for cosplaying male characters (or [[ViewerGenderConfusion Sheik]]).
** Same goes for quite a few [[{{Transsexual}} transmen]] who want to bind. Ace bandages[[note]]Known outside the USA as elastic bandages, compression bandages, pressure stockings, et c[[/note]] are not recommended though, as they grow gradually tighter, and can break your ribcage.

* Though she's not the only one, Master Tigress from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' is depicted as having a flat chest (though that's assuming the AnimalsLackAttributes trope isn't in play). In fanworks, people often justify this by having Tigress wear a sarashi around her chest to conceal her breasts.

** Kamina wears one frequently, usually as [[WalkingShirtlessScene his only form of upper body clothing]] (aside, of course, from his BadassCape).
** Simon's pre-{{timeskip}} default outfit shows one under his unbuttoned shirt.
