* The seventh book in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' introduces Sheila, [[HotLibrarian an assistant at an antique book store]], and one of the first things [[OccultDetective Harry Dresden]] notices is how well she fills out a sweater. [[spoiler: Though it probably helped that she was a [[YourMindMakesItReal construct]] built by a fallen angel [[EnemyWithin Lasciel]] who chose a form that Harry would find [[DamselInDistress ultimately appealing]].]]

* Creator/JanetLeigh was dressed this way in several films, including ''Film/HolidayAffair'', ''Film/TouchOfEvil'', and ''Film//TheManchurianCandidate''. A biography of her ''Holiday Affair'' co-star Robert Mitchum [[http://www.outofthepastblog.com/2010/12/there-is-reason-why-janet-leighs.html revealed]] that ''Holiday Affair'' producer Howard Hughes, who was notorious for his [[BuxomIsBetter obsession with breasts]] and his predatory habits with young starlets, forced Leigh to wear an absurdly tight sweater after she rejected his advances.

* Mabel Pines from WesternAnimation/GravityFalls always uses a long sleeved sweater with a big neck and has a different sweater design for each episode. In the final episode, she made a sweater for everyone in the group.

A special note as there are cultural differences: in Asian countries, school girls (and even boys) wear a sweater to cover up their developing figure, especially when they are growing to be more mature and starting to show differences in their bodies. So it is not uncommon to see school girls and boys wear sweaters when it is 30 degrees Celsius or higher. This has nothing to do with sexiness, and the wearers actually want the opposite. It is the authors that draw them to be much more revealing(as fanservice, obviously), but the hidden meaning is still cultural. Most of the Anime and Manga examples are actually girls that are more introvert, traditional and shy. However, it's not unknown for young Muslim women from liberal backgrounds, in both Asia and the West, to wear sweaters in the Western sense, as it is quite alluring while conforming to the letter of Islamic dress requirements by not showing any skin between the neck and wrists.
