** ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2005}} Post Crisis]]'' Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was a pretty infamous example, what with her cheerleader like costume, being introduced naked in ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' and later dressing in low cut jeans with her thong straps on display, and her constant panty shots when in costume. While most young teenaged girls in comics get treated like this, she did it to such a degree that it made many people uncomfortable, and was the source of many criticisms. Editors eventually issued a demand for this to be limited and/or stopped, and it did.

* ComicBook/JusticeLeague member Ice had this problem during ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', as a lot of action scenes had her oddly-used tank top portion of her uniform hiked over her chest.

** Her friend Fire is a more a straight example. She is mostly naked in the flame form. And when not use her flame powers is always wearing something that shows off her belly, be it her superhero outfit or a bikini.

* Pick a [[MostCommonSuperpower superheroine]]. Any superheroine over 18 or past puberty at least will have the MostCommonSuperpower, and those that don't will still be supermodel thin and have a tendency for Stripperiffic costumes.

* Vikki Vale in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' spent the first few pages dressed in nothing but a pink bra and undies talking about how Franchise/{{Superman}} is the "Man of Steel" for other reasons and all they had was a flying bat. When she found out that she had a date with Bruce Wayne, she ended up in very revealing dress.
* ''ComicBook/BlackCanary'' and her famous fishnets costume. As noted in DependingOnTheArtist, some artists have her outfit showing plenty of cleavage. Occasionally the bottom of her uniform will be drawn as either being a thong at the back, or at the least be shown to be riding up quite a bit to emphasize her behind.

** Comicbook/HarleyQuinn. Her iconic outfit is a [[SexyJester form-fitting jester suit]] that switches it out for what can best be described as a bikini designed to resemble her former appearance. In "Mad Love" she wear a see-through red neglige also. And in New 52 universe her outfit are more incredibly revealing; this is lampshaded by Harley herself (in the ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' series), at one point referring to her look as a "stripper clown outfit". And in her solo series, she is often subject of MaleGaze (out and InUniverse) and portrayed with having a well-toned yet voluptuous body and well-toned long yet shapely legs (especially when she wears her jester suit during the new earth/earth-zero in the comics).
** Comicbook/PoisonIvy tends not to wear anything, other than leaves and vines(along with outfits that she wears with green tights). In the New 52, she got a form-fitting outfit, but even that just amounts to plant spores and leaves hugging up on her body. Even when in battle, she usually speaks in a sultry tone, uses sexual innuendos, and takes stock Playboy Playmate poses while her plants fight for her.

* ''Franchise/WonderWoman''. All of the Way. She is a literal Amazon (and also the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman ) and she is definitely beautiful. She usually wears costumes (such as a revealing strapless leotard or a bustier-hotpants combo) that show off her skin and emphasize her [[MostCommonSuperpower huge breasts]], [[AmazonianBeauty strong toned muscles]], ripped broad shoulders, [[MaleGaze sizeable backside]] and well-toned long yet shapely [[ShesGotLegs legs]].

** Double subverted with the ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch. Power Girl was given a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_powergirlnew52_6447.jpg bodysuit that fully covered her]]. However, in one issue her costume gets tears after a fight, [[MythologyGag one of those tears is]] [[http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/7010/tumblrm9fmn68pym1qcejyb.png a hole above her cleavage.]] She eventually gets her iconic, plays-this-trope-straight, costume back after about a year. [[StatusQuoIsGod It seemed all of creation (even the female fans) wrote in demanding it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Just few examples during Byrne's run. In first several pages of ''Sensational She-Hulk'' #40, She-Hulk is skipping rope, apparently naked (due to a simple joke she made in the letters column) until is not stopped by editor (actually isn't actually naked, but was wearing skimpy undies that were hidden by the blur lines). In ''Sensational She-Hulk'' #45, nearly all the story is filled with big and casual pinup of Jen that steal the spotlight from the actual story narred in the box.

* [[GreenSkinnedAlienBabe Princess Aura]] in ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'', often served this role or at least as much it was allowed in the 30s. Subsequent adaptations such as [[http://static2.comicvine.com/uploads/original/5/58339/2465743-princess_aura.jpg Dynamite Entertainment's]] managed to pull it off more freely.
