* Mike Grell's work for the ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' in the mid '70s gave nearly all the girls the MostCommonSuperpower, which didn't go at all well with most of their outfits, especially Princess Projectra. Those two laces holding it together were going to snap the minute she did anything strenuous. Hey, Mike, these were supposed to be young ''teenage'' girls, you ''knew'' that, didn't you?

* This trope is why some perceive North America's attempt to censor Tharja's swimsuit scene in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' Summer Scramble DLC as ''more'' risque than the original version: in the original version, she's just adjusting her swimsuit bottom, in the censored version, thanks to some SceneryCensor, it looks like she's about to take the bottom off.

* 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.

** An even more blatant example would be Yamanaka Ino's outfit as of The Last: Naruto the Movie. Her shirt and skirt almost fully exposes her hips and abdomen, is barely above her groin and looks like it could slip off at anytime, yet somehow stays on.

Though Theiss was a costume designer, according to ''Inside Star Trek: The Real Story,'' by Herb Solow and Robert Justman, most of the costumes following this theory were actually somewhat more modest before being "[[ClothingDamage improved]]" by GeneRoddenberry. According to the "Art of Star Trek" book, Theiss preferred to design costumes that only ''appeared'' to be in danger of slipping or coming off, through the use of strategically-placed sheer or skintone fabric. He was further able to enhance the effect by the censorship rules of the time regarding what parts of the body could or could not be shown (the navel being the most well-known restriction). He found he could get surprising amounts of appeal from the carefully-arranged display of skin not generally considered erogenous.

* Much like Madelyne Pryor's example, the outfits worn by Jena and Madelyne Pyre in ''ComicBook/XMenPhoenixLegacyOfFire'' are very tiny and not held by any sort of string. They must be using MindOverMatter to keep it in place.
* [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/11124/111243883/4854226-hot.jpg Martian females]] in ComicBook/WarlordOfMars are [[DiamondsInTheBuff dressed in nothing more than jewelry and gold ornaments]] and surprisingly never get fully exposed on page.

** One of the best examples is Theiss' own creation in the ''Star Trek'' episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" In that episode, a female android named [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/45/ST_-_What_Are_Little_Girls_Made_Of.jpg Andrea]] has a costume with an upper portion that's merely two crossed strips of material. Off the set, models wearing this costume ''never'' failed to get a dramatically appreciative reception from at least the men.
