->"''[[TheissTitillationTheory You know what's holdin' that dress up, doncha?]] A city ordinance!''"
-->-- '''Red Skelton'''

There are low-cut outfits... and then there is Absolute Cleavage. This is when a dress or top is specifically cut to show the entirety of the wearer's cleavage and the top half of her stomach...or the bottom half, if they really want to court tabloid immortality.

A SpyCatsuit is frequently [[ZipMeUp one zipper away]] from this {{trope}}. Very slightly justified in that, if you're dumb enough to wear a tight-fitting catsuit on a spy mission, unzipping the front will give you a lot more mobility in the arms and shoulders.

There may be a visible bra underneath, and sometimes there is an invisible one[[note]]There are special bras that create absolute cleavage without getting in the way: either "plunge bras" where the central wire is bent in a deep "U" shape down to the navel, or ones consisting of adhesive cups with no bands.[[/note]], but [[VaporWear generally there isn't]]. In any kind of real-world or live-action context, the latter case generally requires some form of adhesive to avoid a WardrobeMalfunction.

Absolute Cleavage can also be the unintentional result of a WardrobeMalfunction. This can be PlayedForLaughs or for FanService or both, and is, of course, quite common in RealLife as well (where it is much appreciated by {{Paparazzi}}).

Compare {{Sideboob}}, {{Underboobs}}, ImpossiblyLowNeckline, CleavageWindow. Its SpearCounterpart can usually be found on the WalkingShirtlessScene, complete with [[RatedMForManly MANLY]] [[CarpetOfVirility chest hair]]. Any woman who ends up in an outfit like this is probably MsFanservice.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* The female characters in Advertising/{{Orangina}} feature both this and {{Sideboob}}.
* Alexandra Morgan wears a [[BareYourMidriff strapless sports bra]] in a commercial for Tom Tom Runner Cardio.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', one of Urd's signature dresses features this, her being the seductress of TheThreeFacesOfEve. She apparently got her dress sense from her mother, demon queen Hild.
* ''Manga/BlueDrop'': Pretty much all of the Arume uniforms.
* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'': Presea Testarossa's outfit, [[EvilIsSexy after she went completely crazy and evil]], is a black cape over a body-length black dress that displays both her cleavage and navel.
* Sprocket from the ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' anime kept featuring this, despite how often she'd try to zip her suit up.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Matsumoto Rangiku, who uses it to her advantage. Tia Harribel goes from showing the lower half of her breasts to everything but the nipples.
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Amazon Lily boasts a large number of these, more prominently [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful Boa Hancock]]. Nico Robin also fits the bill in certain outfits.
** In Chapter 664, [[spoiler: during his FreakyFridayFlip with Tashigi, Vice Admiral Smoker retains his habit of wearing his shirts open, much to Tashigi's annoyance.]] It has to be seen to be believed.
* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': A male example: [[DudeLooksLikeALady Brera]] [[ViewerGenderConfusion Sterne]], whose outfit has a ''gaping hole'' from the collarbone to as low beneath the abdomen as one could possibly get without something popping out.
* Several incarnations of ''Anime/CuteyHoney''.
* Character designer Uno Makoto:
** ''Anime/DragonautTheResonance'': All female dresses.
** ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'': all the female characters in their [[SuperMode witchblade form]].
** ''Gravion'': Most of [[MsFanservice Mizuki's]] outfits.
* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'': Sister Monica Argento. Apparently in the post-apocalyptic vampire world, the dress code for [[NaughtyNun nuns]] has loosened somewhat.
* Princess Kraehe of ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' has a dance outfit that [[ExaggeratedTrope really takes]] this [[UpToEleven to its logical extreme]]. Her bodice is entirely backless and sideless, with two narrow straps of black fabric rising from the waistline to cover her boobs. Now quick, without knowing another thing about her or her design, would you suppose [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains she was a villain]]?
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Princess Theodora, who somehow manages to have both this ''and'' {{Underboobs}} on the same outfit.
* Rosemon X-Antibody from ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', with the only thing covering her upper body being a tiny red vest.
* Fasalina from ''Anime/GunXSword''.
* In ''Manga/{{NEEDLESS}}'', Riru has absolute cleavage so absolute that there is barely anything covering her boobs at all.
* Risty from ''Anime/QueensBlade'' gains this after doing an EvilMakeOver to the point where the only thing holding it on has to be magic.
* ''Anime/HeroicAge'': Nilval Nephew and Prome O. Prome's outfit is almost certainly reliant on BarbieDollAnatomy to avoid indecency.
* Cecile of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' dresses up rather provocatively in one episode during a formal meeting. In the next episode, Milly dresses up like this during the pre-wedding ceremony between Prince Odysseus and Tianzi.
* Early ''Manga/InuYasha'' villain Yura of The Hair makes use of this trope.
* Angel and Ultear of ''Manga/FairyTail'' like this. It's more notable with Ultear because up until she donned it she'd been wearing a gorgeous, ''tame'' kimono.
** Mirajane also when [[spoiler:she activates [[EvilIsSexy Satan Soul]].]]
** Erza sports this in her Sea Empress Armor
** Lucy wears her spa robe in this fashion.
*** Also Juvia and Erza in the fourth OVA.
** Gonk!Virgo has this as well, because she's just ''too fat for her blouse to hold it all in''.
* Nyuu/Lucy from ''Manga/ElfenLied'', though her breasts are much smaller in the anime.
* Vorona from ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' can't seem to find the energy to zip up her biker suit...
* Kaolinite from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' sports one of these.
* In ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', Oyuki usually sports a white Kimono, but for informal events she'll often take it off revealing an orange Absolute Cleavage swimsuit-type outfit.
* Adelheid Suzuki from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' has this after activating her Simon Ring.
* Kureha from ''Manga/{{Tokko}}''. Her standard outfit is an [[NoShirtLongJacket unzipped leather jacket]] with no shirt or bra underneath. Also counts as the top version of a MagicSkirt, since any forward movement should by rights blow it open.
* Some of Eriko's outfits from ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis'' include this.
* Nabiki was [[GoGoEnslavement forced into a dress]] with cleavage like this in the second ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' movie.
* Pirotess in ''Anime/RecordOfLodossWar''.
* Inori Yuzuriha from ''Anime/GuiltyCrown'' has a few outfits that provide this. Most notably: the skintight, red outfit she wears in the beginning, the black outfit of feathers in her Egoist music video in Episode 1, and the skintight white suit.
* Pretty much all of the female characters in ''Anime/RioRainbowGate'' are guilty of wearing skimpy outfits. However, it is the main villain, Cartia, that walks around with not only the biggest breasts, but a dress that showcases most of her cleavage.
* In ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'', Yolda the demon manages this with a '''corset''', as one of the things that distinguishes her from Hilda. [[spoiler:Which Hilda uses to her advantage when she pretends to be Yolda]].
* Kyo Komachi of ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'' wears a [[PimpedOutCape lavish]] [[NoShirtLongJacket pirate coat]] as a top with only a belt to keep it closed.
* [[GenderFlip Merlin]] from ''Manga/NanatsuNoTaizai'' wears a long coat that is completely open and only covers a portion of her topless breasts.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* ''Franchise/TheDCU'':
** [[Franchise/GreenLantern Arisia]]
** [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Starfire and Donna Troy.]]
** Jennifer Morgan's sorceress outfit from ''Comicbook/TheWarlord''.
** ComicBook/PlasticMan, Vibe, and the more TotallyRadical versions of Nightwing's costume, are among the few male examples.
** ComicBook/{{Vixen}} from the ''Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}''.
** Franchise/WonderWoman villainess Dark Angel.
** The memorably skimpy costume of [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] heroine Comicbook/PhantomLady.
* Franchise/MarvelUniverse
** [[ClassyCatBurglar Black Cat]]. After years of poorly defined powers she, like most comic book Heroines/Villainesses, acquired the MostCommonSuperPower. Naturally, this renders her [[SpyCatsuit Cat-Suit]] [[ZipMeUp unzippable]] above the navel (that is, when she's drawn by Terry Dodson). When Tommy Ohtsuka drew her in the MarvelMangaverse, the zipper (if there even was one) rests eight centimeters ''below'' the belly button.
** The costume worn by Dagger in the team of Comicbook/CloakAndDagger has Absolute Cleavage in the shape of a dagger.
** Aleta from the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' wore a similar outfit throughout most of the run of the series.
** When Emma Frost first joined the Comicbook/XMen, her costume was an unholy mix of Absolute Cleavage and ImpossiblyLowNeckline, due to being a few strategically-placed scraps of clothing that formed a reverse "X" with her exposed skin.
** Lady Lotus from the WWII book ''ComicBook/TheInvaders''.
** The attire of BÍlit, the she-pirate that accompanies Conan in several stories from Marvel's ''ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian''.
* The [[TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] -- later revived by Eclipse Comics -- series ''ComicBook/{{Airboy}}'' included former villainess Valkyrie.
* Lampshaded in ''Comicbook/TheBoys''. After discovering that Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica analogues the Seven are super-pricks, their newest member Starlight is told that their corporate sponsors are redesigning her much-less-revealing outfit into this while the Superman analogue the Homelander ''draws the new neckline on her current costume'' with a Sharpie. ''While she's wearing it.'' Doubly creepy because the Homelander, among others, had recruited her via the CastingCouch.
* Morticia in ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' {{newspaper comics}}. Adaptations such as the 1960's TV series tend to raise her neckline somewhat, but some adaptions (like the Broadway play) have her dress like this.
* ''DurhamRed'', particularly in later strips.
* Olga Lawina in the Dutch comic strip ''ComicBook/{{Agent 327}}''.
* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'''s signature red outfit, bordering on the {{Stripperiffic}}.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/MyImmortal'': Ebony wears dresses like this.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4753440/12/Harry-Potter-and-the-Four-Founders Harry Potter and the Four Founders]]'' the following conversation took place.
-->'''Neville''': I noticed Lavender's dress too.\\
'''Ron''': Yeah, that was a nice dress.\\
'''Neville''': Didn't know they made dresses with bodice lines that low.\\
'''Ron''': Almost see her navel, I could.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jokes]]
* "Dear, do you think this dress' cleavage goes too low?" "Do you have hair on your chest?" "Of course not!" "Then it's too low."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/CasinoRoyale'': Vesper Lynd wears such a dress, which ends up ruined when she [[ShowerOfAngst takes a shower]] fully clothed after a fight scene. Bond states earlier that the point of the outfit is [[ShowSomeLeg to distract the other players]].
* ''Film/{{Legend}}'': Lily's "Bride of Darkness" dress.
* ''Film/DeathBecomesHer'': That one gown Lisle wears, the one held together by one sole button in front of her crotch. And this is just about the largest and least revealing piece of clothing she is seen in throughout the movie.
* ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm'': The [[EvilIsSexy sorceress']] red dress.
* ''Film/YesterdayWasALie'': The dresses worn by Hoyle and Singer in the art museum.
* Ghanima's wedding dress in the miniseries of ''Children of Dune''.
* Adrienne Barbeau in ''Film/{{Creepshow}}''.
* Almost all of Creator/AmyAdams's wardrobe in ''Film/AmericanHustle'', which is set in TheSeventies.
** Also some of the clothes male characters wear, most notably Bradley Cooper in the disco scene.
* A red carpet example is the black dress worn to the premier of ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' by actress Jamie Alexander, which had a sheer mesh panel from the neckline ''all the way down'', baring ''everything'' from her neck to her right foot. Only a right angle in the black fabric forming the bulk (such as it was) of the dress kept her from giving the press an eyeful of her privates, as the cut of the dress [[VaporWear prevented Ms. Alexander from wearing anything underneath]]. And it did the same thing ''in back''.
* In ''Film/TheLegendOfFrenchieKing'', all of Maria's outfits are noticeably unbuttoned to show cleavage.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* YT from ''Literature/SnowCrash'' wears a zipper-front jumpsuit, and unzips it further than modesty would have suggested to discomfit a (slightly) DirtyCop who's not sure if he's up for some PrisonRape or not.
-->'''YT:''' Make up your fucking mind.
* ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'': The attire of BÍlit, the she-pirate in one of the most classic tales by Robert E. Howard, ''Literature/{{Queen of the Black Coast}}'', is described as being only a "broad silken girdle", i.e. she is a rare case of a female {{Walking Shirtless Scene}}. This was obviously not carried over to the comics adaptations by Roy Thomas and John Buscema for Marvel comics, where she wears something similar to the description of this trope. Whereas in the Finnish comic adaptation by Petri Hiltunen, her attire is faithful to Howard's text.
* During Rogue Squadron's insertion into Coruscant in ''[[ComicBook/XWingSeries Wedge's Gamble]]'', Erisi Dlarit wears a rather loose outfit featuring this, only gathered at the waist by a belt. In the words of the narrator, anyone with [[HoldYourHippogriffs the brain of a Kowakian monkey-lizard]] could figure out what she looked like naked.
* In ex-OSS officer Roger Hall's semi-autobiographical ''You're Stepping on My Cloak and Dagger!'' he mentioned a notary public who was wearing a dress so low-cut that one of his buddies referred to it as an "Umbilical Special."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Commandant Mele-on-Grayza in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' There was a reason Crichton nicknamed her "Commandant Cleavage" after all. When called out on it by Akhna (the female Scarran War Minister), Grayza replied "Would you have a weapon in your armory and leave it unused out of squeamish good taste?"
* Supreme Commander Servalan of ''Series/BlakesSeven''.
* Grace from ''Series/WillAndGrace'' has an outfit or two like this. Except her lack of, er, endowments come up.
--> '''Will:''' "What are you dressed for? Open-heart surgery?"
* Creator/{{Elvira|MistressOfTheDark}}
--> '''Elvira:''' "If they ever ask about me, tell them I was more than just a great set of boobs. I was also an [[ShesGotLegs incredible pair of legs]]!"
--> '''Elvira:''' "It's me again, yours truly, Elvira, the gal with the enormous...uh...''ratings''"
* Unsurprisingly, ''Series/{{Manswers}}'' once asked how skimpily a woman can dress before she's legally naked. The absolute limit consisted of two vertical ribbons in front and one slender thong in back; the ribbons' elongated-vee arrangement constituted [[UpToEleven this trope]]. Specifically, the garment (such that it exists) must completely cover the nipple and areola, as well as completely cover the vulva and anus, plus pubic hair. Less/no hair, technically less fabric needed.
* [[MsFanservice Trillian]] wears a top with this in ''Series/{{The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy}}''.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' pulls this on the DVD even before the pilot episode, with a seductive and dangerous looking Creator/SarahMichelleGellar crawling towards the viewer.
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': Irene Adler wears a [[http://kristinkoga.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/sherlock-201-06548.jpg see-through green kaftan]] like this...for about two seconds, whilst looking for another outfit. Then she decides to go naked.
* Margaery Tyrell in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has a wardrobe consisting almost entirely of dresses that expose most of her when they don't involve comically high collars.
* Serena "MsFanservice" van der Woodsen airs said cleavage rather a lot on ''Literature/GossipGirl''.
* Debralee Scott had a WardrobeMalfunction on the GameShow ''Password Plus'' that revealed a braless breast.
* While Mayor Regina Mills is pretty conservative on ''Series/OnceUponATime'', [[EvilIsSexy Evil Queen Regina]] is another story and then some. See also the Mother Superior/[[FanNickname Boob...]] ''[[Literature/{{Pinocchio}} Blue]]'' [[Literature/{{Pinocchio}} Fairy]].
* In the ''Series/StargateSG1'' episode "Reckoning," Ba'al's nameless emissary to the other Goa'uld System Lords wears an outfit with this, despite not having much cleavage to speak of.
* In ''StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' the Duras Sisters, Lursa and B'Etor, sometimes wear outfits that cross this with CleavageWindow.
* Bo in ''LostGirl'' wears this more often than not, often with a black bra visible underneath.
* Detective Beckett in ''Series/{{Castle}}'' usually dresses quite conservatively at work, but in one episode she had to dress appropriately to infiltrate an underground night club, and improvised a party dress out of her jacket. The resulting cleavage not only completely exposed her bright red bra, but also her bare stomach below it.
* ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' has an example of (presumably) unintentional AbsoluteCleavage: in a scene where Jane and Maura are discussing what Jane is going to wear to a party, Jane is sitting on her bed in her bathrobe, and doesn't notice that the robe has come open to her waist. Fortunately, she is wearing a bra underneath.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Quite a few female musicians favor this outfit. Music/KylieMinogue is a clear example with her massive cleavage in the "Can't Get You out of My Head" video. Other examples include Music/BritneySpears' Elvis suit and Creator/LindsayLohan's loose dress.
* The white one-piece Music/BritneySpears is wearing in the video for '3'.
* Music/CelineDion (yes, Celine Dion) wears a futuristic outfit that features this in the music video for "Then You Look At Me", the AwardBaitSong from ''Film/BicentennialMan''.
* Music/{{Pink}} has one in the start of the video for "Just Like a Pill".
* Music/LadyGaga wears these a few times, and in the case of her "Telephone" video, it's questionable if they even count as shirts.
* Trina in the music video for "Pull Over".
* Moran Mazor, Israel's entry in the 2013 Eurovision dsipalyed her assets in such a dress.
* The dress worn by the "beauty" in the "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast"-inspired video for Music/MeatLoaf's "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" is a full-length dress which is gaped open in the front and just barely held in place with lacing, to give it this effect.
* The [[EveryoneLovesBlondes blonde girl]]'s blouse has all but two buttons unbuttoned with the blouse being tied at the waist in the video for "Caught Up In You" by ''[[ThirtyEightSpecial 38 Special]]''.
* Music/JenniferLopez, the current page picture, delivered a LampshadeHanging[=/=]SelfDeprecation of it during the 2013 Grammys while wearing a (comparatively) more conservative outfit.
* [[Music/AlisonKraussAndUnionStation Alison Krauss]] is known for occasionally sporting dresses that show a lot of cleavage.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* "Pinky" from ''Pinball/EightBall'' wears her top like this, combining it with BareYourMidriff.
* Many of the women in ''Pinball/CaptainFantastic'' have either this or [[FormFittingClothing impossibly tight shirts]].
* The original version of ''Pinball/StarTrekBally'' had a female crewmember flaunting her clevage in the upper-right corner of the playfield.
* The magician in ''Pinball/TheatreOfMagic'' features hers on the backglass.
* All of the Mellon girls in ''[[Pinball/WhoaNellieBigJuicyMelons Whoa Nellie! Big Juicy Melons]]''.
* The two women hanging onto the gambler in Creator/SternPinball's ''Pinball/HighRollerCasino'' aren't shy about showing off theirs.
* ''VideoGame/JinniZeala'' features a male example, as Zeala has a shirt that is open from the collarbone all the way down to his waistline.
* The EvilSorceress of ''VideoGame/RuinerPinball'' wears a bustier to emphasize her cleavage... which is then cut down to her navel for further emphasis.
* ''Pinball/{{Farfalla}}'' is famous for its [[FairySexy sexy butterfly fairy]], complete with see-through gown and absolute cleavage.
* The female warriors of ''Pinball/LaserWar'' wear breast-separating jumpsuits that leave their centers exposed.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Print Media]]
* Kim Cattrall appears on the cover of the April, 2003 issue of ''FHM'' wearing only a pair of [[BlackBraandPanties black panties]] and a white dress shirt that's totally unbuttoned.
* Many [[HandOrObjectUnderwear handbra poses]] fit this {{Trope}}.
* Since launching in 1970 the Canadian ''Sun'' newspaper chain has featured daily glamor photos dubbed the Sunshine Girl. Based upon the topless photos published by some UK tabloids, the Canadian publications aren't allowed to have nudity, so this trope is often invoked as a result (especially on occasions when actual professional models, Playmates, strippers and porn stars sneak in amongst the amateurs). Maintained even in the online and calendar versions.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* This is played very frequently in Wrestling/{{WWE}} and Wrestling/{{TNA}}.
** Of all people, [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon STEPHANIE MCMAHON]] did this as frequently as any other WWE Diva.
** Wrestling/{{Lita}}, after she hooked up with Wrestling/{{Edge}}, started wearing this sort of top. Even her "wedding dress" was made this way.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'': Frau Wolf, the brothel madam, in the Essen and Stuttgart productions wears the lacy-bra variant with an otherwise Victorian dress.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'': Sniper Wolf was dressed this way. ({{Lampshade|Hanging}}d and {{justified|Trope}} in ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound''. It turns out that her then reasonable jumpsuit shrunk in the wash (which may or may not have been done on purpose by Decoy Octopus). She was pissed because they were at Shadow Moses and she was freezing with it on. Later, there was The Boss during the final battle in ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'' and EVA during almost the entire game. Though in the case of The Boss, her open suit was meant to show off the scar running down her front. Also, Naomi and Big Mama in ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 4|GunsOfThePatriots}}'' (though since Big Mama was [[spoiler:EVA, to the surprise of some]], this somewhat makes sense). Naomi's cleavage was later explained by WordOfGod in [[https://twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/438173280675971072 this tweet]] to be a reference to the outfit worn by Faye Dunaway in ''Film/TheToweringInferno''.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': [[BlackMagicianGirl Morrigan's]] outfit, consisting of an oddly patched-together skirt and a mage's hood that looks more like she draped a scarf over her shoulders. Adding to this, her entire back is exposed and seemingly only a few strings are keeping the thing together.
** The second game's Varric has a nice male example, showing off his CarpetofVirility.
* Rayne in ''VideoGame/BloodRayne 2''. A little more cleavage and the rating would have gone up.
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', Natalia has an alternate costume that's cut as low as the page image. The rest of the party comments on this. Natalia herself [[InnocentFanserviceGirl doesn't seem to actually realize it]], as she's too excited about wearing the SpyCatsuit of a popular ClassyCatBurglar character she read stories about when she was little. In the Japanese {{P|laystation3}}S3 version, [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Judith]] also has an alternate outfit that is an evening dress with this. The difference being that she knows the [[MsFanservice eff]][[TheTease ect]] she has.
* The fan-made ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' module "Aribeth's Redemption" includes an item (female characters only, not that you are allowed to play one) entitled the "Armor of Impossible Cleavage." It consists of an ordinary suit of gold chainmail with a foot-wide strip of nothing down the entire torso. The person who wears it is a priestess of the setting's goddess of physical beauty and sex.
* Linda Vermillion from ''VideoGame/{{Killer7}}'' had an outfit like this.
* Silvia Christel from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes''. Appropriate, as she's named after a porn star.
* From the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series:
** The culprit in case 2 of ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Justice For All]]'' sports this in a [[FanService frequently-seen]] photo taken of her in a blood-spattered half-open kimono at the scene of the crime.
** Cammy Meele from ''VisualNovel/{{Ace Attorney Investigations|MilesEdgeworth}}'' sports this.
* ''VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend'': Lara Croft wears a slinky dress like this in one level.
* The ''DJ MAX'' series has Elle, the mascot of ''DJ MAX Portable 2''. And in ''DJ MAX Technika'', when you play the "First Set" course, you are, before each song, treated to a very nice shot of her.
* Ultimecia of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' wears a dress rather like J. Lo's example at the top.
* ''VideoGame/JazzJackrabbit'': Eva Earlong in the opening screen.
* ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'': Lilica Felchenerow wears one with a sports bra underneath.
* Kasuga of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' has this as part of her {{Stripperiffic}} catsuit, which actually defies the laws of physics by staying on her.
* ''VideoGame/RumbleRoses'' has Rowdy Reiko after the {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}} [[ActionGirl Girl]]'s FaceHeelTurn has cleavage almost down to her crotch.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'': Yuna's default outfit has this, but the best example is the Lady Luck dressphere, as well as the NPC Leblanc.
* Rufus from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''. Especially considering that [[FanDisservice it goes to the point where you can see his pubic hair]]. A straight example is Hakan's wife, in ''Super SFIV''.
* Gloria's outfit from ''[[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Devil May Cry 4]]''. To a lesser degree there's also Trish [[spoiler: (who is also Gloria)]] and Lady.
* Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} gets one of these in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''.
* In ''VideoGame/MortalKombat3'', Kitana, Jade, ''and'' Mileena wore an outfit consisting of a leotard like this, the two sides held in place by straps across the bust. (Indeed, skimpy outfits that look alike except for colors seem to be standard-issue uniforms for Shao Kahn's female minions, and they got even ''skimpier'' in later games.)
* Every Female Character gets one of these in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''. It gets a little ridiculous how their vast tracks of land can stay in those costumes when there is more cloth in their mask than their tops.
* In ''VideoGame/FableII'', if you're playing a female hero and put on the Bandit Shirt, you get this.
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the Justicar Samara's "combat armor" features this.
* Mai Hem in ''VideoGame/PerfectDark Zero'' has this in mission 4, with a wraparound top that shouldn't be able to stay on.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'', Nisa dresses like this despite being flat-chested. HDD Uni and HDD Vert have this as well. In Vert's case, it's slightly more egregious for her in Neptunia Victory.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}'', the host of the [[FramingDevice Golden Playhouse]], Midnight Venus, wears an extremely low-cut suit jacket with nothing underneath.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' character Morrigan's iconic outfit technically "only" possesses an ImpossiblyLowNeckline and a cut-out right below said neckline that, combined, reveal her entire cleavage ''and'' the top part of her stomach.
* ''VideoGame/TwoWorlds'' has this in the case of Kira. The odd part about this is that Kira is the male protagonist's ''sister'', making her an odd choice for the obligatory FanService girl.
* ''VideoGame/{{Drakensang}}'' has this on the BigBad Malgorra, in an [[UpToEleven extreme variation]].
* ''VideoGame/FearEffect''. Hana's green party gown in ''Fear Effect 2''. As Rain said, "You're wearing that?! Why don't you just walk in there naked."
* Azura's statue in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has this. Which is a bit odd, considering the two [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind previous]] [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion games]] followed her appearance in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and had her statues show her topless, and her actual appearances in Morrowind had her dressed more modestly. Nocturnal wears a robe that shows off her cleavage, split down to her waist.
* ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'''s Ming has a leather corset-thing under a cropped top that features a wide expanse of her cleavage almost down to her navel. How her cleavage doesn't pop right out is a mystery. We even get a cutscene that could be an excuse for a closer look.
* Players have many ways of achieving this look in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''.
* Zyra, the Rise of Thorns from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is "dressed" only in an arrangement of large leaves which expose her torso all the way down the middle of her body to below her navel. [[FridgeLogic Although this raises the question of why she even HAS a navel considering]] [[WhenTreesAttack she's actually a plant who constructed herself a humanoid body to live in.]] Nami's default skin is also a textbook example of this.
* The Sexy Rider Suit in ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'' qualifies.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'', many costumes have this, [[BestKnownForTheFanservice of course]]. Notably, Leifang's leather shorts and top, which used to be zipped up to her neck, and many of Christie's outfits.
* In ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance'', the devil's daughter Satana runs around in a halter-top outfit that shows cleavage from her neck to her navel.
* Costumes with this are available in the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'' games.
* Asheara's outfit in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', while much less revealing than what she wore in ''VideoGame/DiabloII'', features a form-fitting tunic apparently only held "together" by her belt.
* Aversa's outfit in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is a form-fitting version that goes just below her navel.
* In ''[[VideoGame/TearsToTiara2 Tears to Tiara 2]]'', AxCrazy Izebel and {{Ojou}} Elissa have these in their outfit. The former use a [[BladeOnAStick spear]], the latter a [[DroptheHammer hammer]].
* In the cancelled sequel to ''VideoGame/CelDamage'', this was how Dominique Trix was going to dress.
* In ''[[VideoGame/WildStar Wildstar]]'', raid gear for Spellslingers features this... on both genders. Odd, as it's by far the skimpiest gear available in a game that otherwise averts the ChainmailBikini beautifully.
* In ''Videogame/SenranKagura'', [[KickChick Katsuragi]] wears a completely unbuttoned shirt that somehow manages to cover up her lady-bits as she's kicking people.
* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', some of the female Great Khan outfits have this.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', some armor pieces are prone to this - especially cloth armor chest pieces, like [[http://www.wowhead.com/item=2582/green-woolen-vest this tailor-craftable low-level item]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Angels 2200}}'': Hammer's zipper keeps riding lower and lower [[spoiler:during her escape attempt from the Ellie Arroway]]
* ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'': Benny sports this sort of outfit all the time. How does she keeps it from slipping? AWizardDidIt. Probably Benny.
* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': Resident MsFanservice Wanda once showed up wearing this. [[spoiler:She's wearing the outfit from Thriller, and didn't zip it up all the way.]] Later, her evil sorceress outfit qualified too.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Haley being persuaded to sport an Absolute Cleavage was taken as proof by Sabine that Nale intended to sacrifice her.
* Monette in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' once wore an Absolute Cleavage shirt in support of the Boobquake campaign.
* In ''Webcomic/TheKAMics'' when Gertrude & Brunhilda got some "space suits", Gertrude's outfit demonstrated this trope.
* {{Enforced|Trope}} when Tanna -- normally a tomboy learning to track and shoot and disgusted by girly stuff -- of ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' is played for fanservice by wearing high elf clothing in the first Q&A page. She is not exactly impressed[[note]] To quote, "What the shit is this?!!"[[/note]] with her new outfit. This version of her (nicknamed the "Anti-Tanna" by the artist) has a small reprise during the announcement for the second Q&A series.
* [[Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad Steph]] gets this along with a PantyShot.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Endstone}}'', Cole has to be crazy to wear a dress like [[http://endstone.net/comic/issue-2-webpage-26/ this.]]
* Rebecca in ''Lady of the House''.
* ''WebComic/MuhPhoenix'': Black Widow usually exposes a lot of cleavage in order to distract the enemies (though nobody mentions that she can also distract her allies). By her own admission, [[TheLoad this is the only thing she's good for]].

* Many of the downblouse videos fit this {{Trope}}.

* Miss Bellum from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' was supposed to be dressed this way... until Creator/CartoonNetwork complained and she had to be re-designed.
* Occurs when Catwoman zips down her catsuit in ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseCatwoman''.
