So, you want to load up on the {{fanservice}}? Throw in a {{Stripperific}} costume and other sexy stuff? There's just one problem: this is a Family TV Network! We don't believe in that stuff around here, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar so how do we go ahead and do it anyway]]?

One possibility is to make liberal use of CensorSteam, CensorSuds, a SceneryCensor, or a ModestyTowel. This trope is an alternative.

A Family Friendly Stripper wears an elaborate and theoretically sexy costume--that just happens to cover just about everything. She makes a major show of removing a scarf or other accessory instead of actual clothes. Gyrations and undulations happen, but in a strictly PG-rated manner. And lap dances, if they occur at all, are arms-length affairs.

* Esmeralda's dance at the Feast of Fools in ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''. Her actual dress isn't much skimpier than her regular outfit, but she lifts it enough to show off her legs and bare feet, and at the end she grabs a spear from a guard, sticks it into the stage, and spins around it. She even jumps into Frollo's lap and ties a scarf around him, which [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny he remembers a little too well for anyone's good.]]
* Justified in ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''. Miss Kitty's song-and-dance number is period-accurate for Victorian-era England, with her just [[ShesGotLegs showing some leg]] in a leotard. Her song also has plenty of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.
* [[MissFanService Gazelle]]'s tiger dancers in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' reach MisterFanService levels of this trope.

* Because of Creator/JessicaAlba's refusal to appear topless, Nancy's performance at Kadie's Club Pecos in ''Film/SinCity'' ends up being this.
* None other than Gypsy Rose Lee herself performs an extremely family-friendly strip in ''Stage Door Canteen'' (1943). Mostly, she removes various undergarments, such as a petticoat and garter belt, from under a voluminous skirt and then holds them up.
* ''Film/DarlingLili'' contains two striptease scenes but still received a G rating in 1970.
* Amy's act at Club Scum in ''Film/{{Hobgoblins}}''.
* In ''Film/{{Gilda}}'', securely within Hays Code years, Creator/RitaHayworth performs an amazingly sexy strip-tease ... in which she takes off a single glove.
* Enforced in ''Film/ShishOBesh'', where Panis poses as a very fully-clothed hooker and SexySecretary for various cons. Iranian films are subject to fairly strict censorship, and genuine {{Fanservice}} is limited to showing the face and a little hair. The rest must be implied.
* ''Film/LadyOfBurlesque'' a movie about a burlesque theatre shows only skimpy costumes and emphasises the comedy performance. As this was during the days of the Hays Code, no stripping is shown at all. They still do at least have a murder being done with a G-string.
* ''Film/SuckerPunch'' features a brothel (or a fantasy of one) where the girls only perform in sexy costumes. There is no stripping or nudity shown.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' features scenes inside the Lusty Leopard strip club on several occasions, but this is still broadcast TV (also, getting Alyson Hannigan to do a stripper act while pregnant was pretty unlikely). So the Lusty Leopard is a well-lit strip club, where the performers wear elaborate burlesque costumes that never come off, and where the music is sufficiently muted to permit the dialog.
* Most of the strip clubs visited in ''Series/{{CSI}}'' end up being this.

* In Creator/EvaIbbotson's ''Literature/TheSecretOfPlatform13'', the complicated plan of the magical creatures to kidnap their lost prince ''back'' involves the fairy of the group replacing a dancing girl, in order to distract the people. The usual dance number is a striptease where the light is switched off exactly when the last veil could fall. The very prim and proper fairy consents to the plan, but insists on wearing her very long, very decent underwear under the seven veils, just in case there's a problem with the light switch. Hilarity ensues.

* Wrestling/MagnumTOKYO was a stripper character, but naturally he only stripped down to his wrestling tights.
* Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins debuted a striptease gimmick (while WWE was PG no less) but Reks asked for his release a week later. In their one appearance with the gimmick, they stripped down to trunks.
* Randy Orton hosted a striptease segment one night when he was in charge of Raw. The girls only stripped down to modest lingerie.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' :
** At the time of the episode "Homer's Night Out" aired on Creator/{{FOX}}, the animators couldn't get away with showing an actual stripper. So, they made "Princess Kashmir" a BellyDancer instead.
** Parodied when Mr Burns tries to organise a basketball halftime show. He has a troupe of girls called the 'Basket Belles' dressed in 1910s dresses. They only give the crowd a glimpse at their ankles.
