Up For Grabs and Needs A Better Description.

I've seen this in several works (but can only think of one off-hand). A female character- this is a pretty much Always Female trope- undresses/changes behind a screen, and Sexy Silhouette will be in play as well as the possibility of the person talking to them seeing some skin- this has some overlap with Scenery Censor).

Often, this trope is used with respect to actresses toward visiting "gentlemen callers" (the example which brought this to mind is an instance of this in the first episode of Mr Selfridge).

    Subverted in a sketch on The Benny Hill Show: Benny's character gets invited up to a girl's room after rescuing her dry cleaning. She steps behind a screen and drapes her clothes over the top, as if she's going to change into the cleaned clothes. Benny uses his foot to inch the chair the clothes are on closer to him, so she'll have to step out from behind in order to get at them - then she steps out, revealing that she's still dressed and had hung identical clothes on the screen in order to iron them.

    Isn't this pretty much identical to Sexy Silhouette?

    Do we need another trope that's so close to an already existing one?
