** After Wol's outfit in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'' had to be changed for being "too sexy" for the playtesters, it's worth observing that he's actually slightly ''more'' dressed than some previous ''FF'' protagonists like Vaan or Tidus. The difference might have been how it looked like it was one gust of wind and two bootlaces away from falling off his body - Vaan and Tidus's outfits might be scant, but look secure, giving a sort of a more innocent, schoolboy feel as opposed to the stripper effect that Wol ended up with.

* In HolyMusicalBatman, Robin is a rare male example of this trope. All he's got on is a shirt, cape, mask, shoes, and ''briefs'' the whole musical. It gets worse after a scene where we see Superman and Batman rip off each other's UnderwearOfPower.

* Gaap in ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' wears a dress that appears to have a pretty good-sized strip chopped out of it all the way down and very barely stitched back together with [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111219200338/umineko/images/0/08/Gaap3.png laces]]. It's been described as "a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen."

The allure of this trope is all in the tease -- precarious as these outfits seem, they will never, ''ever'' fail to keep everything covered. Having said that, the TTT takes advantage of an odd side effect: a particularly sexy outfit actually ''out-titillates'' frank nudity. Evidently, [[WantingIsBetterThanHaving a woman who is not yet naked is more interesting than a woman who already is]].

Having said that, (At least from the perspective of the viewer -- other ''characters'' might be getting quite the eyeful.) The TTT also takes advantage of an odd side effect: a particularly sexy outfit actually ''out-titillates'' frank nudity. Evidently, [[WantingIsBetterThanHaving a woman who is not yet quite naked is more interesting than a woman who already is]].

* Averted in {{Oglaf}} with Vanka of Brogoria. She wears a very low-cut tunic that shows AbsoluteCleavage, but it often slips and exposes her breasts.
* A rare male example with {{Wuffle}}. As put by one fan, [[MrFanservice his suspenders get lower and lower every time he's drawn]].

* This is parodied in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'', when it's Agnes Skinner who wears a skintight dress to Homer's award ceremony as "Man of the Hour". Homer's father, her co-host, asks, "What's holding that dress together?", to which Sideshow Mel stands and answers, "The collective will of everyone in this room!".

* In the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' games, Chun-Li doesn't exactly show ''that'' much skin (in fact, a lot of other females in the series, including Kammy, show more). Still, that skirt of hers... How she manages all those acrobatic flips and wicked kicks while not showing too much (yet still showing off her great legs) is hard to fathom.
