* Played with in the sense of all the heroines' costumes in ''Film/SuckerPunch'' once the dream sequences start, Not to an over the top semi naked extent but not too covered. Justified for the skimpy costumes in the brothel world because...well it's a brothel. Whenever the girls aren't performing, their clothes are quite modest.

* Played with in the sense of all the heroines' costumes in ''Film/SuckerPunch'' once the dream sequences start, Not to an over the top semi naked extent but not too covered. As it's a fantasy thought up by Baby Doll, it just ties into the RuleOfCool for the action scenes. Justified for the skimpy costumes in the brothel world because...well it's a brothel.

* Women's wrestling gear in general will often have some sex appeal to it. Because of this trope, a lot of custom gear makers refuse to make gear for women.

* Those who thought that people of recent history were uniformly prudish lot should see 18th century women's fashion that was imitated across Europe. Plunging necklines were a major part of the period fashion, and at times it deliberately left one, or even both nipples bare. Compare this to the attitude people had to Janet Jackson's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7e6o1wRCbM wardrobe malfunction]]".

Or take a look at representations of Marianne, the spirit of the French Revolution, as she would typify this look. It would not have been too remakable at the time.

* Subverted in the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal. Two young Assassins back-packing in Howondaland during a gap year get into the papers for some spectacularly destructive acts, including sinking a warship whose crew are trying to arrest them for an earlier act of grand arson. the editor of [[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers Ankh-Morpork's downmarket tabloid]] laments that they were wearing sensible clothing, and asks if they pull anything else off that's seriously newsworthy, could the girls wear a lot less and be sure to take iconographs?

Spies will dress in a SpyCatsuit, even when the mission explicitly calls for them to ''not'' [[HighlyVisibleNinja draw attention to themselves]]. Female warriors will charge into battle wearing a ChainmailBikini. BridgeBunnies on a military starship will be issued go-go boots and miniskirts with their uniforms. And then you have RolePlayingGames and the oft-parodied practice of having outfits that look practical on a male hero, but turn into lingerie if a female puts it on.

* Meiko the VOCALOID has a tiny skirt and top. Both seem to be leather. Megurine Luka and Gumi seem to be like this as well. Lily and Rin Kagamine also count-the latter's shorts are extremely short. And on the Engloid side of things, there's Sonika and Lola (depending on the artist). CUL, in her Vocaloid form, has very short shorts and a vest (but no shirt underneath).
** Taken UpToEleven with Gumi Extend, who has a halter top (complete with underboob) and a very short skirt.

Meiko the VOCALOID has a tiny skirt and top. Both top, both of which seem to be leather. made of leather.

Megurine Luka and Gumi seem to be like this as well. Lily don't have these qualities in their default outfits (unless you count Luka's side slit), but their alternate outfits leave them with bare midriffs and large emphasis on the legs. Taken UpToEleven for the latter with Gumi Extend, who has a halter top (complete with underboob) and a very short skirt.
** Hatsune Miku has a lot of alternate forms, some more revealing than others (hello, Miku Append). Special mention goes to her "race queen" look when she advertises for Good Smile Racing.
** Lily's got a midriff-baring black top with strands where the sleeves should be.
**
Rin Kagamine also count-the latter's counts to some extent- her sleeveless shirt and shorts are extremely short. And wouldn't look out of place on a girl her age, but when songs want to bring out her sex appeal, the shorts get shorter and her poses make her outfit downright provocative.
** CUL, in her Vocaloid form, has very short shorts and a vest (but no shirt underneath).
** On
the Engloid side of things, there's Sonika and Lola (depending on the artist). CUL, in Sweet Ann gets a stripperiffic form for her Vocaloid form, Taiwanese packaging as well.
* Being a gravure model on the side, Anime/SuperSonico naturally
has very short shorts and a vest (but no few of these outfits as promotional wear. Her regular outfit is actually pretty modest; it only becomes sexual thanks to her [[BuxomIsBetter large chest]] filling her shirt underneath).
** Taken UpToEleven with Gumi Extend, who has a halter top (complete with underboob) and a very short skirt.

* Oh good God, Halle Berry's costume in ''Film/{{Catwoman}}''. It wouldn't be so bad if the film didn't also have a female empowerment Aesop.

* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':

Angel (who was originally a stripper) and wears an outfit quite similar to her stripper costume in the climactic battle. She does fly, so we can assume moving around isn't too much of course an issue.

Emma Frost in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. also walks around wearing lingerie and sexy dresses a lot. Granted she's a seductress who uses her telepathy to attack - and she can turn into diamond if she wants to defend herself.

* Invoked in ''Film/XMenApocalypse''. Bryan Singer wanted Psylocke to have a more modest black costume. But Creator/OliviaMunn - a fan of the character - insisted on having the famous LeotardOfPower, joking that they had to "lube me up" to get her in there.



* This is one area where the men are more exposed than the women. About 80% of the male Wrestling/{{WWE}} roster only wrestle in trunks and boots. And about 98% wrestle shirtless, due to limits on how much skin women can show on television. This often veers into FanDisservice when the guys have packed on a few pounds (Wrestling/MattHardy, we're trying not to look at you).
