Often a result of NotAllowedToGrowUp. Compare/contrast BigBraToFill, where the character has a big bust but the actress doesn't. Fits into RealityIsUnrealistic because television and film producers once didn't like to show girls ''in between'' childhood and womanhood (you were supposed to be either a sex symbol or not), though those standards have loosened from how they were in the 1950s.

If you're looking for plain ol' hiding of one's bustiness for whatever reason, see HiddenBuxom.

* WWE women's wrestler Wrestling/{{Bayley}} wears a more suppressed athletic top than the usual revealing women's wrestling garb, due to her persona being geared towards little kids and being very endowed up top.

* Rumors of this being done deliberately in ''Franchise/StarWars'' are false. True, Carrie Fisher's breasts were taped down to prevent {{Gainaxing}} under her costume, but she resorted to that expedient herself after Creator/GeorgeLucas told her that women couldn't wear bras in space! Lucas eventually got the HotterAndSexier he originally wanted with the notorious "metal bikini" slavegirl outfit in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Fisher went on to relate the whole sordid affair in her candid (and screamingly funny) memoir ''Wishful Drinking''.

* From ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Creator/MaisieWilliams. When the series began, Maisie was roughly the same age as her character Arya Stark(12 or 13) and looked it. By season 2, however, [[DawsonCasting puberty had started to kick in big time, though the timeline of the show had barely advanced]]. While it helped that Maisie ''is'' fairly short(5'1"), she quickly became considerably more well developed than Arya most likely would have been, and thus she has since almost always been costumed in thick, padded shirts or tunics.

** Apparently quite a few girls hoaxed their way through the Assassins' Guild School with heavy strapping and a habit of changing under a towel after PE. After the school became co-ed and girls were officially admitted, at least one woman who bluffed her way through was invited back as a teacher to the first openly female students.[[note]] The canonical Madame Deux-Epées, who teaches Swords and Stabbing, should you wish to know.[[/note]]
