Of course, not every culture shares the notion that the sight of [[NippleAndDimed female nipples]] somehow corrupts children, hence the [[http://www.retrojunk.com/details_articles/507/ Japanese animated version]]'' of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale features bare-chested mermaids. It's also possible to avert the whole issue entirely by making the "fish-parts" ascend all the way to the [[NonMammalMammaries bustline]] and mimick a one-piece swimsuit or a strapless dress as Disney did with [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]].
