* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, female Assassins keep weapons of almost-last-resort in there, generally flexible stilletos (or working tools like lockpicks and Gigli saws) concealed as underwiring in their bras. They ''have'' heard about where Agatean ninja women are [[CountryMatters reputed to conceal a ''real'' weapon of last resort]]. (in a specially designed sheath). To a woman they consider this a Last Resort Too Far and proof that [[WeirdJapaneseThing Agateans Are Strange]].

** Parodied in in one episode when Marcy, notorious for her flat chest, attempts this trick--and the object falls through her shirt and onto the floor. Played straight with Peg, though--who should be the poster woman for this trope.
