[[caption-width-right:240:[-NakedInMink goes well with this trope.-] ]]
->'''Studio Executive A''': She strips? This has got to get a PG-13 rating.\\
'''Studio Executive B''': Like I say, it's a family movie. She only strips to the waist. And we only see her from the back.
-->--'''Creator/RogerEbert''', review of ''Film/MilkMoney''

A naked or topless woman is shown only by the camera showing her bare back (and nothing below her waist). This usually means someone is seeing her bare front... but not us. This allows female nudity without actually showing the goods and, as such, is a form of DiscretionShot.

As the quote atop the page indicates, the point here is to have some titillation without showing the [[NippleAndDimed forbidden nipple]]. Reasons for this vary. Some examples come from times when censorship rules were stricter. Other works may need to avoid a more "adult" rating. Many actresses simply don't want to go topless. Or a filmmaker may decide that less is more.

This trope does not count if the character is also seen topless from the front. DressHitsFloor is the below-the-waist equivalent.

For clothing that exposes the back but covers the front, see SexyBacklessOutfit.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In ''Manga/InuYasha'':
** Kagura has one of these in an episode when she's attacked from behind, showing off Naraku's mark on her back.
** Kagome has one of these moments when, after being captured and waking up [[BathingBeauty naked in a tub of sake]], she leaps out of the pool when Inuyasha breaks down the door to rescue her. All we see is her back and Inuyasha's [[LuminescentBlush hilarious expression]].
* Happens to Clare in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' a couple of times when Rubei tells her to turn around while naked. Of course, what he's seeing is a [[TakeOurWordForIt really horrible-looking scar, or possibly something]] even more {{squick}}tastic, but the idea is the same.
* Riza Hawkeye in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Her back [[spoiler:has a giant tattoo, and burn scars covering it]]. Since it's Riza, you could still call it Fanservice, and the fourth ending to Brotherhood prominently features her back.
* In the ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' anime, the audience sees Saber's back while Shiro sees the front after she gets out of the bath. Saber [[InnocentFanserviceGirl doesn't seem to mind]] and tells Shiro that he shouldn't think of her as a woman, but as a warrior first. Shiro's reaction? "PleasePutSomeClothesOn!"
* The ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' anime has the twins putting a photoshopped picture of Haruhi's shirtless back on the club website[[labelnote:*]]since Haruhi is actually a girl, but they want people to think she's a boy[[/labelnote]], leading Tamaki to falsely conclude that they must've seen something while taking the picture. It's more egregious in the manga, where the twins put Haruhi's head on ''[[ShirtlessScene Tamaki's chest]]'' and Tamaki is still fooled into thinking it's real.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''
** Bare back scene appear on occasion, but it's usually overshadowed by the fact that most of the girls are naked all the time anyway, their modesty only preserved by CensorSteam and [[BarbieDollAnatomy lack of detail]].
** In an oddly justified use of the trope, Setsuna's tribal crow garb comes with an exposed back purely for [[HalfHumanHybrid half-demons]] and [[{{Tengu}} full crows]] in humanoid form to release their [[WingedHumanoid wings]]. Otherwise the new appendages would appear underneath the user's shirt uncomfortably.
** Later on we get [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v28/c255/10.html Asuna in a hospital gown]]. Only KenAkamatsu could turn a freaking ''[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v28/c256/9.html hospital gown]]'' into FetishFuel.
** Later still, we have the backless dresses variant at a fancy ball. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v31/c279/11.html Check out Chisame and Ku Fei here.]] (Warning: Enormous Spoilers)
** Ako. ''She'' may think that her back is ugly, but [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v14/c122/18.html if you're into chicks with scars...]]
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': During Kallen's ShowerScene, the curtain gets pulled open, and we get a Toplessness From The Back shot. Then the [[MaleGaze camera pans down.]]
* When Akane's body was [[GrandTheftMe possessed by a vengeful spirit doll]] in ''RanmaOneHalf'', it tried to distract Ranma (so it could kill him afterwards) by stripping bare in front of him. The audience only got to see Akane's back and upper hips; the real Akane (trapped in a doll's body) threw herself at Ranma's face to keep him from looking.
* [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Gintoki]] gets a lot of these moments. Most of the time, they're played for laughs but that doesn't stop the fangirls from ogling over him.
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' gives us a view of Miaka's back as she's bathing to purify herself for the summoning ceremony (her butt's included though, poor girl). We don't see her when she turns around. Tamahome does.
* ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'': Holo [[InnocentFanserviceGirl normally doesn't wear clothes]], but she ''does'' use the trope to justify why she's not going to remove her (ear- and tail- concealing) cloak for some strange merchant Holo and Lawrence met that day.
* In ''Anime/ZeroZeroNineOne'' Mylene Hoffman/ Agent 009-1 has several Toplessness From The Back scenes combined with {{Modesty Bedsheet}}s. Indeed, the very first time you see her in the series is when she gets out of bed wearing only a bedsheet and showing plenty of sexy back.
* ''Manga/SoulEater''. Tsubaki Natsukasa in the first opening and the various [[FuroScene Furo Scenes]].
* Weapons-grade UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}} Isis Egret from ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' has another side that's gotten a lot of attention lately, with a certain racerback outfit.
* Mixed with the Japanese nape-of-neck thing in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' when Fuu poses for an artist. First she's asked to only loosen her kimono a bit and let the collar slide a little lower. OK, that's a bit naughty. The artist just keeps prompting her to lower the collar more and more. Scandalous!
* Marik Ishtar's tattooed back is lampshaded as such in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.
* When [[MrFanservice Akune]] of ''Manga/MedakaBox'' first joins the student council, we get [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/medaka_box/v01/c006/16.html this shot.]] [[{{Fanservice}} Yum.]]
* This is often the most we get to see of Nami in ''Franchise/OnePiece'' during her shower scenes. In some cases, however, she is shown topless from the front, but with her breasts covered by CensorSteam. The trope was also used as an actual plot point for more than a half chapter, when Hancock had to show Luffy the mark on her back.
* A couple of scenes in ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' where Miho is talking to the other girls in the school baths.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:ComicBooks]]
* ''[[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Astonishing X-Men]]'' #21. When Colossus and Kitty are given a refuge from the Breakworld's Powerlord by former gladiator Arghanne, Colossus considers the ramifications of his presence on Breakworld before turning in. Hearing his confusion, Kitty emerges from behind the curtain. The reader is treated to a clear view of Kitty's nude back (and a little bit of her cleverly shadowed rear end). Colossus clearly sees her front.

* Perhaps the raciest shot of ''Film/CabinFever'' shows Marcy from the back. Specifically, [[TemptingFate it shows her lover squeezing her back, which explains how she gets the rashes]] that reveal she was actually infected with the flesh-eating disease and [[DeathBySex passed it on to loverboy]].
-->'''Paul:''' ''(While they are in the middle of having sex)'' Shouldn't we use a condom?

* Discussed in ''Film/StateAndMain'': a screenwriter agonizes on how to rewrite a critically important nude scene because the actress refuses to get naked. He finally has an epiphany to simply show her from the back, so that the scene can remain but the actress doesn't have to actually be nude.
* ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. Played straight for {{fanservice}} with VainSorceress Queen Ravenna, but when her beauty and powers start to fade, we're shown a FanDisservice shot of Ravenna sitting with her back to the camera, her ribs clearly visible.
* ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' (1997). As Humbert is driving her away from summer camp, Dolores leans over the backseat and removes her shirt and bra so as to change into something more fashionable. Humbert has [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn trouble with his breathing]] and [[DistractedByTheSexy keeping his eyes on the road]].
* Done in ''Film/TheGunsOfNavarone'', but definitely not played for fanservice. The team are, rather brutally, interrogating one of their local guides, whom they suspect to be TheMole.

* Creator/MegRyan briefly when getting out of bed in ''Film/WhenHarryMetSally''.

[[folder:LiveActionTV]]
* Faith appears this way during sex with Xander in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "The Zeppo".
* This happens in an episode of ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'', when Nina is forced to undress in front of Jack, so she doesn't try anything. She deliberately faces him, showing us her scarred back. Prison must have been rough.
* ''Series/StargateSG1''
** In the season 2 finale, O'Neill wakes Carter from the cryotable and she only has a sheet on. When she sits up her entire back is revealed resulting in O'Neill giving her a through looking over before requesting they get her some clothes.
** TheReveal of [=RepliCarter=] in season 8 involves this.
** Also happened to an attractive but ill-fated blonde female sergeant in the series premiere.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}''
** Saffron in the episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds".
** Inara was taking a sponge bath in the unaired pilot. Lucky sponge.
** Nandi in the episode "Heart of Gold".
* Caprica-Six or Sharon Valerii [Athena] in ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'', and basically an excuse to have a sex scene ''and'' show off the glowing spines of the female Cylons (at least initially, as the concept [[strike:was forgotten]] [[RetCon would have made identifying Cylons too easy]]).
* Happens in an episode of ''Series/NightCourt'' (of all places) where a member of royalty from a small island nation casually takes off her halter top in Harry's office when he tells her to "make yourself comfortable". (Apparently, nudity is not a taboo in her culture, seeing as she was arrested in the first place for indecent exposure.)
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'':
** Zhaan ("[[InnocentFanserviceGirl Is nudity a taboo in your culture?]]")
** Chiana
** Sikozu in season 4.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** T'Pol showed her interest to Tucker in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' this way, when she slips off the robe she wears while giving him Vulcan neuropressure to reveal she's wearing nothing underneath, as revealed by a full body shot.
** This popped up in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' as well, in an episode where Q's son uses his powers to take away Seven's clothes. Only the top half in that case.
** In the episode "Drone", we see B'lanna like this as she gets ready for a sonic shower.
* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'': InnocentFanserviceGirl Parker reveals her back quite often. Usually in front of Hardison. It involves a lot of UnresolvedSexualTension.
* ''Series/BabylonFive'':
** TheCaptain Sheridan gets this treatment when the new PoliticalOfficer attempts [[DistractedByTheSexy to seduce him]].
** In a fifth-season episode, we see Lyta Alexander nude from the back in a scene with the irritating telepath Byron, showing how vulnerable she is to his manipulation.
* Rather surprisingly, this shows up in the pilot episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' between Mulder and Scully. The case involved teenagers being returned from alien abduction with two small bumps on their lower back. Scully finds two such marks on her own back, freaks out, and runs in her underwear and red robe to Mulder's hotel room to have a look. Mulder is understandably perplexed when she drops her robe and has a moment of pause. There is a shot of both the front of Scully in her undies and her bare back as Mulder inspects the bumps. They turn out to be mosquito bites. For the rest of the series, Scully is noticeably more stoic and clothed.
* The British sitcom ''Series/{{Coupling}}'':
** Sally (Kate Isitt) in series two and once with Jane (Gina Bellman) in series four. In each case the audience is treated to "the full backal", as the show puts it, but other characters see the front.
** Sarah Alexander's character.
* Abby on ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' had one of these scenes early in the third season, and for a couple of other seasons, the scene was a part of her montage in the opening credits.
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': ''[[Recap/SherlockS02E01AScandalInBelgravia A Scandal In Belgravia]]''. Extensively.
* In one episode of ''Series/{{House}}'', the reaction of a female teenage model to the revelation that she is technically male is to rip off her hospital gown in front of House and a large viewing window (with a lot of startled people on the other side) and scream, "Look at me! I'm beautiful!" We only see this from the back, but House, who has a better view, is definitely looking.
* The "Pilot" episode of ''ShastaMcNasty'' has this with Scott, Dennis and Randy [[ThePeepingTom secretly watching Cindy Margolis get undressed]] to take a shower. The boys then watch her [[BiggerIsBetterInBed well hung]] POSSLQ take off his [[ModestyTowel towel]] and [[ShowerOfLove join her]].
* In the "Baywatch Down Under" episode of ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'' we see this when Kendra Rielly (Tanya Zaetta), is wearing just [[BarelyThereSwimwear a thong bikini bottom]] when she goes [[PoolScene swimming]] with Cody Madison in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8mBsAMhIbA#t=3m21s this clip]].
* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' episode "Murder He Wrote", Castle takes Beckett to a vacation spot in the Hamptons for their first vacation since their RelationshipUpgrade. They decide to use the swimming pool during their first night, and when Beckett takes her robe off, she treats the camera to a clear shot of her back. (Regrettably, a murder interrupted their fun and games.)
-->'''Castle''': You forgot your bathing suit.\\
'''Beckett'''(smiling mischievously): I know.
* Spencer from ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' indulges in this on several occasions.
* Briefly via Lara Flynn Boyle removing her bikini top in a hot tub on the ''Series/LawAndOrder'' episode "Submission."
* ''Series/{{JAG}}'':
** In the pilot episode, when Harm and Kate searches the deceased female officer�s belongings in her cabin, her bodybuilding roommate Cassie comes to change and as Harm gentlemanly offers to leave, she quips "Why? Never seen a naked sailor before?� before he even gets a chance to, as shown from the back. Both Harm and Kate get noticeably uncomfortable in their facial expressions. When Cassie has left, Kate asks Harm:
-->'''Kate''': Did you see the muscles on her?
-->'''Harm''': I wasn't looking at her muscles.
** Also, in the first part of two-parter "Boomerang", Harm and Bud walks on the beach when a hot blonde takes of her bikini top, which makes Bud [[DistractedByTheSexy clearly distracted]].
* Becomes a plot point at the end of ''Series/{{Elementary}}'''s first season. Sherlock has been reunited with love interest Irene Adler after her abduction by Moriarty, and as he spies her topless back as she changes clothes, he observes that she's missing a mole. [[spoiler:He deduces that Moriarty wouldn't care enough about his abductee's health to have the mole removed, so she must have been working for Moriarty. Sherlock was half right -- Irene actually ''is'' Moriarty.]]
* Laura on ''Series/PanAm'' shows hers as she poses for some nude photos.
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Jane [[BarelyThereSwimwear goes topless]] [[BeachEpisode on the beach]] in "The Hamptons" episode.
* Lauren is briefly seen like this in ''Series/FakingIt'' when she's preparing to send a naked selfie to her boyfriend and Shane opens the door on her. Being gay Shane has no appreciation for it.
* Happens quite a lot on ''Silk Stalkings''.
* ''Baywatch Hawaii'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRKYA9ZyGW4#t=33m24s this scene]] from "The Hunt", Jessie, Allie Dawn and Kekoa go topless as traditional a part of the [[OurNudityisDifferent traditional costume]] for Jason's manhood ceremony.
** In the "Shark Island" episode we only see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WFYRqJulIs#t=24m40s Jessie's back]] when takes off [[ModestyTowel her towel]] to [[SkinnyDipping go skinny dipping]].
* Juliette indulges in this sometimes on ''Series/{{Nashville}}'', although in "Road Happy" (but not the other times) it's almost certainly a BodyDouble due to Creator/HaydenPanettiere's condition at the time and [[HideYourPregnancy what it entailed]].

* The cover of Music/{{Sade}}'s newest album ''Soldier of Love''. Bam.
* Music/LadyGaga's videos for "Bad Romance" and "Alejandro", although both incidences contain a certain amount of [[FanDisservice disturbing]] along with the sexy.
* The lovely Music/{{Kimbra}} in the music video of Music/{{Gotye}}'s "Somebody That I Used to Know", combined with BodyPaint. Gotye himself appears nude from the front, but both are censored by camera discretion.
* The video for "Who's Your Daddy?" by Music/TobyKeith shows Tiffany Fallon from behind, swimming topless in his pool.

[[folder:NewMedia]]
* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' when Marik/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Malik]] takes his shirt of to reveal a tattoo on his back. "Now watch, Fangirls, as I strip. Yea, get a load of that back. You '''''[[SoundEffectBleep (EFF)]]'''''ing love it, don't you!" Might be counted as FanDisservice in the original anime, once you see how exactly he received it, since in the ''original'' Japanese-language anime, it wasn't a tattoo at all; it was actually ''carved into the flesh of his back to the point of scarring.'' And look at how [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/File:Marik%27sBack.jpg intricate]] this thing is!

[[folder:UndergroundPress]]
* In the 1960s, when the underground press flourished under the artistic inspiration and control of hard-working hippies, this demure pose was extremely popular in both line drawings and photographs. It also appeared on numerous psychedelic posters.

* Miang from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'', after having sex with Ramsus. She has a ModestyBedsheet to cover her hips, but Grahf is getting a good look at her bare front.
* The Wii game ''Enjoy Your Massage!'' has this as the gameplay. You massage the bare backs of attractive [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue-haired]] women.
* In ''VideoGame/FearEffect'' the player is awarded with Hana's bare back after she drops her towel to [[DistractedByTheSexy distract an enemy]].
* In one of her win poses ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear's'' I-no will turn her back to the camera and tear off her top. In arcade mode, [[SNKBoss you'll get tired of seeing this surprisingly quickly.]]

[[folder:VisualNovels]]
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'': One of Kud's [=CGs=] involves this, as on the island where she was born there is a ritual that involves people painting symbols onto one another's skin and while she wanted to give Riki a big canvas to work on, they hadn't yet been going out long enough that she was comfortable with him seeing her topless front like that.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Webcomics}}]]
* Used in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', when Grace has to [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2002-05-17 change shirts]] with [[ChivalrousPervert Tedd]] in the room.
* [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1110 Jones]] takes down a Bison Latifrons without any weapons or a top in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Since this happened [[spoiler: in mankind's infancy]], it didn't really attract a lot of attention.
* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'': at one point, Daisy ends up [[http://www.lastres0rt.com/2012/05/again-showering-is-very-important/ looking at herself]] in a mirror to inspect why her implants ([[IThoughtItMeant no, her BIONIC implants]]) are going haywire.
* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'''s Miho joins the fun in [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1319 this strip]], and throws in some BareYourMidriff and SideBoob for good measure. Despite the situation, she's not giving Piro a show on purpose.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' has no inhibitions about showing toplessness from the front, but will occasionally use a back view for teasing effect or to show that one of the characters is being tantalised. For example, strip #676 (November 24, 2012, NSFW) features frontal nudity -- but it's a back view of the superhumanly shapely [=DiDi=] that really intimidates her new rival Sonya.
* In ''Webcomic/OutThere'', Miriam is seen like this occasionally [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20091111.html]]; as are others, such as Rebecca, less frequently [[http://outthere.keenspot.com/d/20100501.html]].
* ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' uses this on occasion; it runs a fairly high level of FanService while remaining generally SFW. Hints of buttock cleft are sometimes involved.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Shifters}}'', shown [[http://shiftersonline.com/chapter-3-pg-1/ here]] in [[http://shiftersonline.com/chapter1-cover/ "Shifters - Redux"]] [[spoiler:when Ferrah arrives in a MentalWorld quite naked.]]
