Walking Swimsuit Scene

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Needs More Examples, Needs a Better Title.

Also known as: Casual Swimsuit.

For some reason, some girls seem to walk around in a swimsuit only for Fanservice, which may be justified because they work at a swimming pool or at the beach.

These girls don't have to wear only a swimsuit; they can still wear other clothing as long as we see that there is a swimsuit underneath. For example, Misty of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver wears a jacket and sandals, but we can see that she's wearing a swimsuit underneath.

Examples:

Anime

Film
  • Many Fanservice Extras in the James Bond films. (Commonly included in any list of "Bond Girls" but Bond Girl refers to characters with actual personalities.)

Live-Action TV
  • Every female character on Baywatch, ever.

Video Games

    Yukimura Sanada from Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls wears a white School Swimsuit under her clothes. It's MUCH more apparent on her Master Samurai form.

    The female leads of One Piece are so much this it's all Sanji can do not to die of Explosive Nosebleed.

    I don't see how Sengoku is an example- she wore a swimming suit largely out of circumstance in order to remove her curse. Before and after that plot she just wears normal clothes.

    Do we have a trope for female characters that just walk around with ridiculous outfits in general, not specifically limiting it to swimsuits?

    Well I really don't know Sengoku that well, I haven't even see Bakemonogatari (or what you call it), But I have remove it.

    And I don't know if they is One too.

    I think it needs to percolate a bit more and you'd do well to sort the examples.

    Video Games
    • Rikku from Final Fantasy X 2 wears a bikini with shorts and a scarf over it as her default outfit.

    Wait, Burn Notice doesn't chout, Thay only wear they bikinis on the beach/pool and I think they are not the Main Characters.

    Could do with a better title. If someone's referred to as a 'walking [something]', it's implied that thing usually doesn't walk (for example, Walking Shirtless Scene - a shirtless scene doesn't walk, the character probably does). Swimsuit models generally do. Walking Swimsuit Scene might be a good trope title.
