->''"Women have more hiding places than men."''
-->-- '''Meryl Silverburgh''', ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''

A woman hides a plot-sensitive item close to her heart. Or more accurately, between her (usually large) breasts. Related to the DoubleStandard, since a man can't reach down there without {{hilarity ensu|es}}ing (consequently, women often stuff a small object down there [[KeepAway to keep a man from getting at it]]). May lead to being NippleAndDimed. Occasionally serves as {{Hammerspace}}. Lends a whole new meaning to the term 'breast pocket'. Does ''not'', as a general thing, refer to the, uh, [[CountryMatters other compartment]] or ''other'' [[AssShove other compartment]].

Occasionally even small pets get stored there (well, it's warmer than a shoulder). Such cleavage critters are usually [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter harmlessly cute]]; if they're [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything longer than they are wide,]] you can bet they're going to be used for blatant fanservice sooner or later. [[BalefulPolymorph Under]] [[IncredibleShrinkingMan certain]] [[{{Shotacon}} circumstances]], humans can get a [[DoubleEntendre ride]] there too, for extra {{Fanservice}} and ShipTease.

If an antagonist knows she's hidden something valuable there and has her in his power, this can result in a ShamefulStrip to try to reveal the object. Otherwise, it's the MundaneUtility of the MostCommonSuperpower.

Compare TrouserSpace (the general equivalent for a male character, though females can do it too), AssShove, UnorthodoxHolstering, TorpedoTits. See also CombatHaircomb. Contrast TreasureChestCavity.

This is one of several trope names that could be a "Before & After" puzzle on ''Series/WheelOfFortune''[[note]]and in fact, it was used on the actual show[[/note]].

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'':
** Plum (Shimbo's compact [[ArtificialHuman persocom]], designed to resemble the laptop), tries to hide in the cleavage of Chi, because Hideki (with all the screaming around) is scaring her.
** Yumi keeps her keychain-sized persocom in her cleavage (At least in the manga).
* ''Anime/ZeroZeroNineOne'': 009-1 has hidden the monkey with the implanted memory (containing data about a weapon of mass destruction by the [[HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection Eastern Block]]) between her breasts when jumping out of a shuttle set to explode when it reaches a certain altitude.
* Sha Chi from ''Manga/PenguinMusume'' hides a katana (of all things) between her breasts in one episode.
* ''Manga/GiantRobo'''s "Ginrei Special" [[BonusMaterial Omake]] {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}VAs parodied this by having the ActionGirl in question pull a [[{{BFG}} full-sized bazooka]] from her cleavage while she was wearing a [[SpyCatsuit motorcycle suit]] (as seen above). Video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUcxrL2Sg4A&feature=player_detailpage#t=228s here]].
* In an episode of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' ''R2'', Kallen kept the control to her HumongousMecha in her cleavage.
* Takada Kiyomi keeps a page from the ''Manga/DeathNote'' in her bra. Similarly, Light (in volume 9) discusses with Ryuk keeping Misa's notebook in case he needs to relinquish ownership of his again so he won't lose his memories by binding it to his chest with a corset.
* [[ACupAngst Haruna]] from ''LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuKa'' hides the secret scroll Maelstrom borrowed from Ayumu between her breasts.
* During one arc of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', Revy ends up hiding the documents they have to deliver in her shirt, only revealing this when they give them to the CIA agents sent for them. The agents then complain that the documents are sweaty.
* Tendou Rushuna from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' not only stores extra bullets in her cleavage, but manages to eject them when needed and [[UnorthodoxReload catch them with her gun]].
* Hannah from ''Manga/BlackButler'' has all ''sorts'' of weaponry in her cleavage.
* ''Anime/AngelLinks'' has its main character, Meifon Li, keep her EmpathicWeapon [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Angel_Links,_Fanservice.jpg in her cleavage]] for easy access and consultation.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''
** In an early arc, Shampoo hides an [[CarryingTheAntidote antidote]] shampoo [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shampooshidingplace.jpg down her shirt]] and then dares Ranma to retrieve it. When bartering an antidote or power item with Ranma for a date, she tends to keep them there too, to prevent him from stealing and bailing. She once hid a kitten in there, but that was to scare Ranma into accepting the date (Ranma's an ailurophobe).
** Similarly, Kodachi has kept items in her bra more than once.
** A mirror-duplicate of female Ranma hid a magic compact in her cleavage once. Naturally, the real Ranma didn't even think twice about stealing it.
* The drug dealing girls in ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'' hide their Accela inside their cleavage.
* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Bulma does this with a diamond. It doesn't go in her bra. Krillin, upon being given the gem, holds it up to his noseless face, trying to see if it [[{{Squick}} smelled]]. [[MythologyGag He doesn't have a nose.]]
* Though she doesn't actually have a cleavage worth mentioning, Pan muscles her way into the first saga of ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' by dropping the control keys for the spacecraft she has stowed away on down her shirt. Trunk's long hesitation about whether to retrieve them or not was the cause of much (possibly unintentional) UnresolvedSexualTension between the two.
* Many suspect that Ururu from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has a hidden compartment... ''[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uruushidingplace.gif down there]].'' It's bigger than she is! Ah, the wonder that is {{Hammerspace}}.
* In one episode of ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'', Ennil asks the guards preparing to kill her and Dr. Farzenberg for one last intimate moment (pretending that they're lovers). They agree, and she opens her jacket... revealing a set of flash-bang grenades, which she and Farzenberg use to escape.
* Kirche von Zerbst uses this to store her wand in ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima''.
* ''Franchise/LupinIII''
** A few ladies in the manga hide things (microfilm, diamonds) "down there". Busty Fujiko's among the most frequent of practitioners.
** The first opening sequence for the Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket series shows Fujiko dropping a diamond ring in her bikini top.
** An episode of the second series has Fujiko in disguise, only for Zenigata to see right through it. After revealing her, the first place he looks for a hidden microphone is in her cleavage. [[GenreSavvy And he's right.]]
** Another episode of the second series has a giant Fujiko tuck a normal-sized Lupin into her cleavage for safe keeping. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''
** Asakura holding Sayo in her cleavage.
** Earlier on in chapter 35, she stores [[WeaselMascot Chamo]] in there. [[DirtyOldMan Bet he enjoyed it.]]
** In chapter 276, Mana pulls out an [[{{BFG}} anti-tank rifle]]. It's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.
** This rule isn't just limited to big-breasted girls in ''Negima'', as Nodoka, who is flat-chested, is seen hiding one of the smaller versions of her Pactio item in her cleavage in chapter 280.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu''
** In a chapter, Rito gets shrunk to roughly 4 inches tall. Lala keeps him all day in her MarshmallowHell.
** Her younger sister Momo [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/to_love_ru/v17/c149/8.html has been shown]] tucking her summoning device into her cleavage.
* Boota of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has ridden in Yoko's cleavage on multiple occasions, including the first day they met. Kamina and Simon's jealousy is obvious. What's even funnier is that [[spoiler:after the time skip, when Yoko makes her dramatic entrance, guess where Boota goes.]]
* Following Boota's example is Touchoumaru, the pet mouse of Shigure from ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. [[http://www.mangareader.net/337-23783-1/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/chapter-277.html He's one lucky little rodent]].
* ''Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar'' takes the Fanservice knob and turns it well past eleven. Two of the characters keep their cellphones in their cleavage (though it's [[GagBoobs more like a cavern]] [[WorldOfBuxom for both of them,]] really). Both ''also'' happen to keep them on vibrate, so everyone knows they're getting a call when their boobs start to rumble like the kind of volcano you run away from really fast.
* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', Kudou Yukiko carries an unconscious Conan ''in her cleavage'' while riding a motorcycle across Japan. Conan is actually Shinichi, Yukiko's drug-induced de-aged teenage son.
* Sheryl in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' drops Alto's talisman down her shirt in the 5th episode as "insurance" that he'll keep his word. And in the False Songstress Movie she keeps a taiyaki-shaped cellphone in there, which wiggles so much when it rings that is actually ''leaps'' out!
* ''Manga/OnePiece''
** Kalifa apparently hides her key between her breasts.
** Nami hides things in there rather often, including the staff she uses to fight (both before and after getting the Clima Takt). She also stored a Den Den Mushi in her shirt, which was more than pleased.
** Also Robin, who once pulled a small paper from her cleavage in the... [[{{Gainaxing}} remarkable]] [[GagBoobs Seventh]] [[{{Fanservice}} Movie]].
* ''Anime/DominionTankPolice'', the animated OAV run: the Puma twins (guised in finery) take out their large heavy weaponry from their bras and underwear.
* In ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres'', Aya keeps Tooya's dagger in her bra. It's wonder how she doesn't get cut.
* In the manga for the video game ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' there's an omake that says that Sheena has her exsphere equipped just under her left breast.
* In an omake chapter of ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[ActionGirl Erza]] produces a lead pipe... Well, there's a reason it's on this page.
** During the after party of the Grand Magic Games, Erza cheers up Milliana by pulling out Happy, Carla, ''and'' Lily from her rack.
* ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' character Blue [[note]]Green in the English version[[/note]] is rather well-endowed for a twelve-year-old. Sabrina unfortunately found out ''why'' during her battle with her. There was no way anybody saw ''that'' coming. Blue was frozen in place, so she taunted Sabrina's "health" (read: bust size) and baited her into [[BreastAttack attacking her big, round]]... Poké Balls. Not a euphemism: Blue apparently padded her top with them, and the attack released her Pokémon and allowed her to escape. Unfortunately, it was edited out of the English re-release.
* Merle from ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'' apparently has much larger breasts than viewers are led to believe, because in episode 8, she stores two boxes of Pocky, lipstick, a pager, a watch and a discman in her cleavage.
* Izumi of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' apparently keeps her cell phone here. Revealed when a guy (kitten) steals it, by diving into her shirt.
* Fuu of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' has a pet flying squirrel named Momo, which seems to spend most of its time inside her kimono. Spoofed in an episode where two teenagers appear to be leering at her cleavage. At the end Fuu is furious to discover they were actually interested in Momo. There was also the first episode, where she stuffs some bombs down the front of her shirt, which unlike Momo [[{{Gainaxing}} are quite easily visible.]]
* When Chypre and Coffret first ran into Tsubomi in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', they hid in her shirt to escape from Sasorina. It works perfectly... until she creates a [[MonsterOfTheWeek Desertrian]].
* Celty from ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' keeps her cash payments down the front of her [[SpyCatsuit catsuit]].
* In ''Manga/FutabaKunChange'', the store clerk they meet while shopping for undies is so addicted to smoking that she has a tendency to try to sell underwear with multiple hidden compartment for cigarettes, just like the ones she wears to hide her smokes.
* Princesses Gallet and Christina does this accidentally in ''Manga/ShinaDark'' when they are forced to leave the treasury/labyrinth of doom without any treasure... [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/shina_dark/v01/c002/34.html except]] what accidentally got stuck in their cleavage, much to Noel's [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/shina_dark/v01/c002/35.html jealousy]].
* Kana from ''Manga/MyLovelyGhostKana'' is the eponymous ghost. Being a ghost allows her to drop the temperature on the room that she's in as well as apparently cool a can of beer to the perfect temperature by putting it in her ghostly cleavage and rotating it slightly.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''
** Skuld and her "Skuld-bombs". Actually, [[http://www.mangareader.net/161-10549-13/ah-my-goddess/chapter-82.html she has enough explosives down there]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/161-10549-14/ah-my-goddess/chapter-82.html to take out a battalion]], despite having the body of a flat-chested thirteen-year-old. This was even PlayedForLaughs [[UpToEleven to an extreme]] in a recent arc where she pulled several tools out of her blouse before she realized she was out of weapons.
** In one of the later chapters, [[http://www.mangareader.net/ah-my-goddess/266/7 Belldandy]]. When Keiichi stopped to think about holding an object that'd been nestled '''there'''....
** A short while later, Belldandy uses it to [[http://www.mangareader.net/ah-my-goddess/271/6 hide an important item]]. ''[[http://www.mangareader.net/ah-my-goddess/272/10 It didn't work]]''.
* In ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' chapter 62 Matsu pulls a tracking device out of her cleavage.
* In one chapter of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', Chiri comes to clean Nozomu's house, and wants to straighten things so there is less "dead space". Nozomu comments that she has her own dead space, wearing a bra that's too large for her. She responds that she uses the space effectively and [[AxCrazy pins him to the wall with knives]]. (During this scene, Nozomu specifically references Fujiko of ''Anime/LupinIII''.)
* In chapter 26 of ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'', Zeke ends up in Shizuka's secret compartment, [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-55385-25/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-26.html and stays there for the next five pages.]]
* In the anime version of ''Manga/KareKano'', Yukino Miyazawa puts a photograph in her bra.
* In ''Manga/MuhyoAndRoji'', Harumi Busujima hides tempering medicine between [[GagBoobs her breasts]] to prevent her friend Reiko Imai from finding out how reckless her magical law use is.
* Lum of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' would occasionally pull some Oni-tech gizmo from her tiger-stripped bikini top. It isn't like her [[{{Stripperiffic}} usual outfit]] has many pockets.
* In the Volume 3 [[BonusMaterial Omake]] of ''Manga/GirlFriends'', after [[GenkiGirl Akko]] [[IncredibleShrinkingMan becomes doll-sized]] for [[HandWave some unknown reason]], Mari decides to let her come to school with her by placing her under her bra. Unfortunately, the train she takes is overcrowded due to the rush hour, making that place too painful for Akko. [[HilarityEnsues So Akko decides to climb a lot more south and...]]
--> ''Mari:''' I'm definitely not taking you to school anymore!\\
'''Akko:''' But I didn't have any other place to go!
* In the Japanese version of episode 73 of ''SonicX'' Rouge stores a data disk in her cleavage that had been given to her by a dying Leon.
* Overlapping with HyperspaceArsenal, Mami Tomoe from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' magically pulls out a rifle from her chest area.
* In ''{{Manga/Saki}}'', Yuuki, after losing a practice match, accuses Nodoka of hiding mahjong tiles between her [[GagBoobs breasts]].
* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'''s [[BoobsOfSteel Shura]] certainly ''[[InvokedTrope invokes]]'' this trope with the tattoo seal on her chest where she can pull out her sword when needed - or store even Rin's.

* Comicbook/AntMan hides in ComicBook/BlackWidow's cleavage in an issue of ''Comicbook/{{Thunderbolts}}''.
* Where else would ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} [[http://comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=496233&GSub=79074 hide the things that she steals?]] After all, she '''IS''' a [[{{Pun}} jewel thief]]! And, of course, it's a [[DoubleEntendre pearl]] [[VisualPun necklace]].
* In Galen [=DeMarco=]'s first appearance in ''TheSimpingDetective'', she draws a concealed gun on Jack, despite wearing nothing more than a thong. Jack's narration even muses, [[LampshadeHanging "No, I don't know where she kept the gun either."]]
* In ''The Adventures of a Lesbian College School Girl'', Jennifer hides the key to Petra's diary in her bra. Petra retrieves it with her teeth. Given the title, you can probably guess what this leads to.
* She wasn't hiding it, but ''MadameMirage'' once showed off by holding her pistol (by the barrel, grip facing outward) between her breasts. She even moved around a little to emphasize the fact that it was securely lodged in there. She's also seen to store a small video screen down there.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Franchise/GIJoe'''s The Baroness in [[http://roadkill-catthouse.deviantart.com/art/No-need-to-frisk-70459861 this piece of fan art]].
* At one point in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4464089/1/Yellow-Submarine this]] Franchise/HarryPotter fan work, Hermione stuffs [[spoiler: Ron and Harry's]] wands down her blouse to keep them from hexing each other. However, [[spoiler: Ron]] doesn't think that this is really a hardship. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: nothing happened]], which could inspire ''FanFic'' FanFicFuel
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'''s Ember [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?order=9&q=ember+danny&offset=48#/d1davmi]] somwhat subverted in that the object in question is larger than her breasts.
* ''Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX'': Kaguya isn't concealing a knife in her cleavage, but rather between her butt cheeks. Played straight in Mokou's case, in that she carries her cigarettes in her bra.
* The first chapter of ''Fanfic/{{Bait and Switch|STO}}'' has this line when Eleya is facing a {{Stripperiffic}}ally clad Orion matron who [[KnifeNut likes to use knives]]:
--> "There’s a muffled thrum from somewhere above me as the [[WaveMotionGun spinal phaser cannon]] finally fires, then she’s upon me, having pulled two more knives from I’m-not-sure-I-want-to-know-where."
* In one ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' story, Xander mentions that Illyria kept a [[Manga/GiantRobo bazooka hidden in her cleavage]] that she [[NoodleIncident once used on a mugger]]. Justified however given that Illyria is an EldritchAbomination in human form and a RealityWarper.
* In ''[[FanFic/YuGiOhTheThousandYearDoor Yu-Gi-Oh! The Thousand Year Door Redux]]'', when the Shadow Queen has Rave thrown into her prison, the demonic jailers have her searched, and while they take her deck, they don't bother confiscating a few cards that they consider obsolete. This proves to be a mistake, because she decides to keep those concealed in her bra strap, and when Hyde finds her and another prisoner named Bianca in trouble later, she's able to use one of them - De-Spell - in combination with her RealityWarping powers to unlock Bianca's restraints.

-->'''Eddie Valiant:''' [[DoubleEntendre Nice booby trap.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado''. "How did you get those?" "Where was she keeping them?"

* In Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', Mrs. Lovett hides the purse of Sweeney's first victim, Pirelli, down the front of her bodice.
* This trope is frequently used by Bernadette Peters. She used it in ''PenniesFromHeaven''... and then in the film version of ''Film/{{Annie|1982}}''... and then once more in Woody Allen's ''Alice''... and then again in the TV remake of ''Cinderella''... the list is endless. Well, that's no surprise, given that she probably has a lot of room in there.
* In the awful ''Film/{{Thunderbirds}}'' movie, the Hood's female assistant stuffs some of the stolen jewellery down her cleavage when no-one is looking.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'': Elizabeth Swann and the Aztec medallion that -- due to a gold chain's magical length-fluxuating ability -- would pop down from her cleavage into her corset for a handy spider hole.

* In ''Film/ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld'', Ethel Merman's character drops the car keys down her cleavage, prompting the male characters to ''turn her upside down and shake the keys out''. Parodied and subverted in one master stroke.
* In ''Film/{{Batman}}'', [[StealthPun Vicky]] Vale attempts to conceal the film containing a picture of Batman unmasked in roughly that neighborhood, if her dismayed grab at her left breast in one scene is any indication.
* In ''Film/BatmanForever'', Bruce Wayne asks Sugar (one of Two-Face's babes) how to turn Edward Nygma's machine off. He takes the glowing green battery from her and goes in, and then Sugar produces a second, identical battery from down her cleavage and switches it on again.
* In the mostly forgettable Creator/JeffGoldblum/Creator/MichellePfeiffer vehicle ''Film/IntoTheNight'' the heroine doesn't produce the diamonds she is smuggling until after a [[TrouserSpace very suggestive shower scene]] about halfway through the movie. [[spoiler: hint: they weren't in her cleavage.]]

* Adrienne Barbeau also uses her Compartment in ''Film/SwampThing''.
* ''Film/JamesBond''
** Notably averted in ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'' when Tiffany Case tries to conceal a data cassette in her bikini bottom. Needless to say it's glaringly obvious there, especially since the BigBad forced her to wear the bikini specifically to prevent her from concealing anything. Well, that's the [[FanService reason he gives]], anyway.
** In ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'', Bond Girl Mary Goodnight and the villain Scaramanga use their Compartments.
** ''Film/AViewToAKill'': Pola Ivanova smuggles away an incriminating tape down the front of her robe.

* In ''[[Film/MissionImpossible Mission: Impossible II]]'', Nyah attempts to hide the expensive necklace there. Ethan then forces her to give it back, right in front of the head of security.
* ''Mad Money'', where the trio stuffs every single scrap of clothing with money.
* There was interesting subversion in an early Creator/JetLi film. In it, Jet Li's character caught a female reporter recording something sensitive. He goes up and asked her for the tape. The reporter promptly dropped the tape down her blouse, thinking he won't search her there. He didn't, he just grabbed her legs, turned her upside down and shook until the tape dropped.
* In ''Film/BadBoys'', Tea Leoni's character manages to hide a handcuff key in her bra and uses it to escape at the end. The mook guarding her ''[[IdiotBall sees her reach for it]]'' but doesn't think to check her.
* ''Film/JohnnyDangerously'': Lil uses this a couple of times.
* ''Film/TrueLies'', twice. Juno Skinner keeps her business card in her bra. Likewise, Helen hides the transmitter bug between her breasts, however she quickly loses it when her [[DressHitsFloor Dress Hits the Floor.]]

* ''Film/WhatEverHappenedToBabyJane''. Jane threatens Blanche with the note that she wrote for help that she kept tucked away in her blouse.
* In the 1974 ''Film/TheFourMusketeers'', Constance (Raquel Welch) got her hands on a key which she triumphantly dropped into her cleavage -- having forgotten that her friends needed that key to unlock the chains and '''rescue''' her. And then, it being a very small key, it slipped further down and she couldn't dig it out. Eventually she tried [[{{Gainaxing}} jumping up and down]] in hopes that it would fly out.
* In the 1927 Academy Award-winning film ''Film/{{Wings}}'', [[GirlNextDoor Mary]] procures the order to cancel leave down the front of [[{{Stripperiffic}} her dancer's dress]].

The receptionist makes them fill out a bunch of paperwork, giving them a pen from the front of her shirt. When one of the boys asks to get a drink of water, she pulls out a paper cup already filled.
* ''Film/TimeAfterTime'', Jack offers a prostitute a shiny coin. She quickly deposits it down her corset.
* Inverted in ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' where [[spoiler:Holmes handcuffs Irene Adler and drops the key down her breasts for another man to have to fish around for]]. Plus the earlier scene when Irene reaches down the the front of her dress for an envelope containing information on the case. The fact that Holmes grabs her arm and prepares to defend his life indicates she's kept more lethal items there in the past.
* ''The Bounty Hunter'' gives us this line:
-->'''Gerard Butler:''' Something tells me I should frisk you.\\
'''Jennifer Aniston:''' Why? Do I look like I have a weapon between my breasts?
* ''Film/{{Clue}}'': Miss White produces a handkerchief from her cleavage. That's probably all that could fit there considering her dress. We imagine that Yvette and Miss Scarlet could have easily hidden all of the evidence away given how their attire complimented their ''ahem'' tracts of land.
* Toward the end of ''Film/TheRunningMan'', Amber (who, as a contestant in the DeadlyGame, is wearing a spandex bodysuit) produces an incriminating tape. Leading to...
-->'''Richards:''' Where did you hide that?\\
'''Amber:''' None of your business.
* In ''Runaways'', the girlfriend of the BigBad is scanned for tracking devices by the cops, who find one planted in her bra. A definite subversion, as it was one of several bugs hidden within her various garments, and she herself didn't know it was there.
* ''Film/{{Bullshot}}''. 1930s DamselInDistress Rosemary Fenton hides the secret formula in her... underthings.
* ''Restoration''. Robert Downey Jr. plays a 17th century doctor who is losing all his money in a shell game, and searching desperately for more. Meg Ryan is playing his mentally disturbed wife. She shouts loudly "My money's up my skirt!" much to his embarrassment. Sure enough she then produces a coin from up her skirt. And wins the game for him.
* The trailer for ''Film/JonahHex'' implies that Lelia keeps a knife in her bustier, but that it was taken when she was "thoroughly searched."
* In the Creator/MarxBrothers film ''At the Circus'', Pauline (Eve Arden), places a $10,000 wallet down the bodies of her costume (she's a human fly in the circus) leaving Groucho to make the AsideComment, "There has to be some way to retrieve that without offending the [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Hays Office]]."
* ''All About Steve''. Mary stuffs a cookie wrapper into her bra, further reminding us that she is insane.
* ''[[Film/DirtyHarry Magnum Force]]''. The prostitute in the taxi cab pulls double duty on this trope, hiding large sums of money in both her bra and panties.
* The Creator/ClarkGable film ''China Seas'' does this twice. First, when [[FemmeFatale China Doll]] (JeanHarlow) steals half of the [[MacGuffin hundred pound note]] down her dress. When asked where it was, she kept cupping her breast, not so subtly. The typhoon [[SexySoakedShirt leaves her soaking wet]], but somehow the note survives intact. Later, when the ship is boarded by pirates, two of the girls in the lounge drop their earrings down their tops. Little good it does them, as one of the pirates sees them do this and with one gesture, gets them to take the valuables out again.
* In ''Film/CarryOn Cowboy'', Belle carries a gun in her cleavage.
* Parodied in Creator/LaurelAndHardy's ''Way Out West''. Trying to keep the deed to a gold mine from a femme fatale, Stanley stuffs it down his shirt. This doesn't deter her at all and she accosts the extremely ticklish Stan.
* In the 2002 film ''Trapped'', Creator/CharlizeTheron's character hides a scalpel between her buttocks. She then gives a GroinAttack to the main villain with said scalpel.
* ''Creator/AbbottAndCostello Meet the Mummy'': The Femme Fatale pulls a gun from her shirt. However, since she was dressed for the desert it takes opening a few buttons to get it out and putting them back when putting the gun away.
* In ''Il Postino'', the girl hides her love letters here. Given that she wears low cut tops and that she is hiding them from her mother and grandmother, the letters are retrieved in pretty short order.
* The 1959 BMovie ''Film/MissileToTheMoon'' has the villainous Alpha pulling a dagger from her ample cleavage [[TheStarscream so she can murder the Lido]].
* Milady de Winter in ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers2011''. In the opening scene, she keeps a stolen key in her cleavage, where she later places Richelieu's ''carte blanche''.
* The contestants in ''Midnight Madness'' all take forever to decipher the clue, "Look between the two giant melons." It doesn't help that the place serves honeydew melon halves.
* In the 1970's {{Blaxploitation}} movie ''Film/FoxyBrown'', {{Creator/PamGrier}}'s character hides a gun in her bra.
* In ''Film/BonnieAndClydeVsDracula'', Bonnie (TiffanyShepis) keeps a straight razor tucked in her stocking top.
* Toward the beginning of ''Tammy and the Bachelor'' Debbie Reynolds made an indignant comment about being a "woman fully growed" and dropped a key down her dress, only for it to fall to the floor. When she repeated this action at the end of the movie and it stayed in place she said in a tone of soft wonder "Why, I ''am'' a woman fully growed."
* In the 1955 film version of ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls'', one of the street walker/pickpocket pair in the opening number drops a pocket watch into her Compartment. It happens at about 1:08 into [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl6MHgh1vFQ this clip]].‎
* ''Film/{{Nikita}}''. To celebrate the successful completion of her training, Nikita's handler takes her to a fancy restaurant where she's [[SinkOrSwimMentor suddenly given a Desert Eagle and her first kill assignment]]. As she's only wearing a LittleBlackDress, she tucks the spare magazine into her cleavage.

[[folder:Jokes]]
* An older woman went shopping, and tucked her $50 into her brassiere for safekeeping. While on the bus, a young man reached in and grabbed it, and ran. Afterwards, the police asked why she took so long to raise the alarm. "I didn't realize he was going for my money," she protested.
* ReddFoxx told a similar joke early in his career, about a woman accosted by a mugger. The rather Savvy mugger figures she might have some more money hidden away, and begins to search her ''thoroughly.'' After a while, the woman tells him that she doesn't have any other money "But if you keep doing that for five more minutes, I'll certainly write you a check!"
* A young woman with a cold was invited to a formal party. Lacking pockets, she put a handkerchief in each cup of her brassiere. Partway through the party, she steps aside and pulls out a handkerchief to sneeze and blow her nose, afterwards discarding the handkerchief in lieu of stuffing it back in. Later, she feels a sneeze coming on, so she reaches in for her second handkerchief. Not finding it, she starts rummaging around when she realizes the room has gone completely silent. She looks up and sees everyone staring at her. "What?" she said, "I know I had two when I started tonight!"
* A comedienne had this as her whole routine during a stand-up showcase, possibly ''{{Comicview}}'' on Creator/{{BET}}. At first she started small, pulling a handkerchief out of her bra to dab away sweat while telling a story, but then the things she pulled out got increasingly outlandish, including a sandwich (that she started to eat), and ending with a ''bottle of wine''. In case you're wondering, she was a larger woman wearing a loose-fitting blouse, so everything was fully concealed at first.

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'', Scarlet O'Hara averts this trope. She thinks about hiding her money inside her, uh, bosom, when Yankee soldiers come to raid her house, but is afraid if the soldiers see it they will strip-search her, so instead hides it in her baby's diaper.
* Velvet from ''[[Literature/TheBelgariad The Malloreon]]'' sometimes keeps a small, virulently poisonous snake there. Her love interest Silk is ''not amused''. For that matter, neither is the snake's owner. Later she keeps a bunch of them down her dress after the snake has babies. She also mentions that initially she got the creeps from keeping the snake there- she did it because she's an assassin, and it was a useful emergency weapon.
* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/BetweenPlanets'', Isobel apparently hides a very important ring there. Heinlein was writing for the juvy market, and in TheFifties, so he [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar doesn't connect the dots]] for the reader.
* In "Trill Coster's Burden", one of Creator/ManlyWadeWellman's Literature/SilverJohn stories, TheVamp tucks a giant ruby into her cleavage, and tells John that if he wants it he'll have to reach in and get it; he declines, and she gets away. (This ends badly for her, since the reason he wanted it in the first place is that it has a curse on it he's trying to break.)
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Nanny Ogg keeps all sorts of things in her knickers, including alcohol and cash. But since she's a dumpy old lady, this is FanDisservice. It helps that a witch wears several skirts, several pairs of pants, several stockings, and "knicker pocket" can only be the first layer in their underwear. But that's putting [[FanWank way too much thought into it]].
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Similar to the ''Xena'' example below, Asha Greyjoy keeps a dagger sheathed between her breasts. Being one of the few female ship captains, she's [[{{Fanservice}} quick to show it off]] and refers to it as her "suckling babe".
* In ''A&M'', this causes a clerk to nearly faint, and just brings his crush on the girl full-circle.
* In one of ''Literature/TheIndianInTheCupboard'' novels, Patrick gets sent back in time to TheWildWest and is a few inches tall. When he finds a sympathetic lady who wants to carry him around, she considers her shoulder, decides it's too slippery, and goes with her cleavage.
* Tiny Gulliver in ''Literature/GulliversTravels'' also gets a cleavage ride. He's just nauseated by the hygiene factor, though. After hearing his description of the experience, so are most readers.
* In Tom [=DeHaven=]'s novel ''[[Franchise/{{Superman}} It's Superman!]]'', Lois hides a metal tag that could be used to incriminate Lex Luthor in her white cotton Gamble's brasserie when questioned by the police.
* Sheen from Creator/PiersAnthony's ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series carries small tools in her breasts. Note that because Sheen is a [[spoiler:robot, this is entirely literal; she actually detaches her breasts to reach these items.]]
* This is also present in ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'' during the scenes with the French Queen.
* In a novel based on ''VideoGame/PrimalRage'', villainess Malissa is trying to taunt main character Kage with a map. She sticks it in her cleavage to keep him from grabbing it. Then proceeds to antagonize Kage with her taunts and cattiness until he loses his patience with her and grabs it anyway.
* ''Literature/EnolaHolmes'' uses this trope as both a means to disguise herself by exaggerating her bust for disguise purposes and hiding important items, most notably a dagger with the protruding pommel posing as a broach.
* ''Literature/TheScarletPimpernel''
** In the sequel ''Eldorado'', Sir Percy's wife Marguerite smuggles letters from him to his League out of prison in her kerchief... or, as her husband puts it, "... on your exquisite bosom where I so love to pillow my head."
** In another sequel, ''Sir Percy Hits Back'', the Scarlet Pimpernel himself sends a secret message to Fleurette, his latest rescuee, by slipping it into ''her'' Victoria's Secret Compartment... while disguised as her prison warden, which freaks the poor girl out.
* In the ''Literature/LandOfOz'' books by Creator/LFrankBaum, the sorceress Glinda is forever pulling her wand or some other useful magic doodad out of her "bosom". She probably wins the trope because on one occasion she pulled out a magical handkerchief which turned into a camping setup for a dozen people!
* Used by Rosamund in the ''Literature/KnightAndRogueSeries'' to store the key to a flimsy lock, much to Fisk's exasperation and Michael's delight.
* John Updike's short story "A & P" features an attractive, bikini-clad customer who pays with a dollar bill pulled from her top.
* ''Literature/TheHollows'': Rachel sticks her cell phone here for a wedding, since her dress lacks pockets. It rings loudly and rudely. Takata finds it amusing when she says she "had it on vibrate. Really."
* The title character of ''Literature/OrlandoABiography'' carries the manuscript of "The Oak Tree" in her bosom for a couple centuries before publishing.
* In ''[[Literature/{{RCN}} Some Golden Harbor]]'', Adele and Tolvera use a false bosom used by [[WholesomeCrossdresser Elemere]] to hide a pair of machine pistols for use in a raid on a paranoid councilor's mansion, knowing that they would be scanned for weapons on arrival, while a seemingly restrained Elemere wouldn't.
* This is how Gwyneth of ''Literature/TheRubyRedTrilogy'' takes her mobile phone to the past with her despite it being forbidden.
* In Literature/MarginPlay, Amber carries (at different times) a business card, a thumbdrive, and a gun in her bra.
* The very first NeroWolfe novel by Creator/RexStout, ''FerDeLance'', features a young Italian housemaid who carries her money rolled up in the top of her stocking. Given that the novel was written in 1934, only a cad and a bounder would try to get to it there. (Archie does, anyway.)

** In another episode, in an attempt to score some action with Jack, Lana takes some money off of him and puts it into her cleavage, telling him to "make a withdrawal." Jack obviously isn't amused, but Chrissy finds it hilarious, saying, "It's a treasure chest!"
* A hilarious misunderstanding in ''Series/{{Coupling}}'' (best not to go into exactly what said misunderstanding was, for fear of text walls) led to a discussion about why men don't smuggle. One given reason was a lack of "concealment crevices"...
* Parodied in ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' when Marcy, notorious for her flat chest, attempts this trick -- and the object falls through her shirt and onto the floor. Played straight with Peg, though -- who should be the posterwoman for this trope.
* ''Series/ICarly'': {{Convers|ationalTroping}}ed in "iMake Sam Girlier"; a bully shoves french fries down Sam's shirt. After Sam beats her up, she pulls a fry out of her blouse, eats it, and remarks that it's a pretty good place to keep french fries.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}''
** "War Stories": [[TheLancer Zoe]] successfully attempts to ransom back her husband [[NonActionGuy Wash]] and [[TheCaptain Mal]] from [[BigBad Niska]]. After averting Niska's attempt to pull off a SadisticChoice by picking her husband when Niska says the ransom is not enough for both men, he re-evaluates saying that the ransom was really a little too much and has his [[TheDragon Dragon]] cut off Mal's ear which Niska then hands to Zoe wrapped in a handkerchief. Zoe [[TranquilFury calmly]] takes it and carefully tucks it into her shirt (though not her bra). Although, being the Captain's faithful sidekick, Zoe might have felt that shoving it into a pocket was simply disrespectful.
** In "Shindig," Mal lifts a big wad of money off a guy in a bar. He gives it to Inara for safekeeping... and she immediately sticks it in her top.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', "Odyssey". Lois concealed a flash drive with incriminating evidence on Lex in this area.
* Sara in the {{Pilot}} of the ''Series/KnightRider'' {{Revival}}.
* Apparently, Aunt Vivian from ''Series/PushingDaisies'' keeps money there, as seen in "Circus, Circus". And in ''Frescorts'', [[AlliterativeName Veronica Villanueva]] seems to keep ''everything'' in there.

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E1NewEarth "New Earth"]]. After [[GrandTheftMe taking over Rose Tyler's body]], Cassandra keeps her knockout perfume hidden between Rose's bouncy castle... breasts.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] Part Two. Donna stuffs a lottery ticket down her wedding dress. [[Recap/DoctorWho2006CSTheRunawayBride It doesn't have any pockets.]]
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E12ThePandoricaOpens "The Pandorica Opens"]], River Song pulls out a tube of drugged lipstick to use on her guard.
* ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', "Grey Hour". Bank robber-imprinted Echo loses her memory of what she's doing, so the Dollhouse uploads the same imprint into Sierra in an attempt to walk Echo through the heist. Sierra tells Echo that she has a bottle of resin on her person. When Echo can't find it, Sierra remarks "Bra's a good place".
* ''Series/{{VIP}}'' has Valerie Irons (Pamela Anderson) hiding everything the propmaster could find, but she's outshone by Kay Simmons (Leah Lail), who had a laptop (or perhaps ''top''top) ''computer'' hidden there.
* Larry's agent Jeff in ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'' is accused of having a small penis by an ex-mistress, who works as a maid. Jeff explains that in fact it's the opposite, she has a very large vagina. Larry suspects her of stealing a baseball, and when he loses his cellphone tries calling it. ''Hilarity ensues''.
* A skit on Carol Burnett's variety show back in the '70s had her character pull things needed for songwriting out of her cleavage: paper, pencils. When it's pointed out that the pencils aren't sharpened, she sticks one back in -- and the grinding sound of an ''electric'' pencil sharpener is heard.
* Variant in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Charlie X". Charlie shows Yeoman Rand a "card trick" where he throws the Ace of Clubs over his right shoulder and Yeoman Rand, sitting on his left, gives a startled expression before pulling the card from out of her low-cut uniform.
* In the ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' episode "Chuck Versus the Three Words", Sarah keeps a knife in her bra. Notable in that the it isn't clumsily concealed in between her cleavage but is instead housed in a special sheath near the straps.
* ''Series/DueSouth'', "All the Queen's Horses": Fraser and Thatcher are handcuffed together in the train's horse box, but Fraser may be able to pick the lock using one of Thatcher's hairpins -- once they have it. Their hands are unusable because they're cuffed in an inaccessible place, so Fraser has to remove the hairpin from Thatcher's hair by mouth... but then he drops it. Guess where it lands? He then has to retrieve it, again by mouth (but only after asking permission of his superior officer). Thatcher's expression as he recovers the would-be lockpick is priceless.
* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'': Xena keeps a knife down her cleavage. Well, she keeps weapons everywhere she can. Gabrielle's efforts to copy her are hampered by her "less impressive" assets.
-->'''Gabrielle:''' [[HoYay/LiveActionTV It's not like your breasts aren't dangerous enough]].
* From ''Series/{{Bones}}'', while pretending to be a carefree married couple with Booth and trying to gain some information off some guys, Brennan walks up to them and casually takes out a wad of cash from her low-cut dress.
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}''

** One episode has Cat keeping candy in her bra, which she offers to her friends.
* In an episode of ''Series/HappyDays'', a female gang have captured Richie, Ralph and Potsie because Chachi had been dating the younger sister of the gang's leader and dumped her.

* In the ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' episode "Mike's New Job", Edith does this with a slip of paper (on which is written the phone message that will lead to Mike and Gloria's move to California) to keep it away from Archie. Archie doesn't hesitate to go in after it.
* Alex Hunter from ''Series/WhiteCollar'' hides a knife here. [[spoiler:She and Neal use this to escape the Big Bad's DeathTrap in one of the season finales.]]
* In ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', D'Anna Biers hides a video camera tape in her shirt and hands over a fake one to be confiscated.

After a few iterations, she is seen with an uncomfortable expression on her face; then she drops a stuffed alligator onto the heap of loot.
** The tendency of women to try and use this trope for shoplifting was referenced in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKCZRg4EveU this skit]] (about the 3:50 mark).
-->'''Officer:''' At one stage I had cause to approach a woman who I was pretty certain had been smuggling out bars of soap down the front of her blouse. Eventually, of course, she made a clean breast of it.
* In ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode "[[Recap/CommunityS2E08CooperativeCalligraphy Cooperative Calligraphy]]", Annie is accused of hiding her pen here. To rule it out, everyone in the study group has to strip down to their underwear.
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', "A Scandal in Belgravia": Mrs Hudson [[spoiler: hides a camera phone down her blouse]].

* On ''Series/{{Glee}}'', [[ManipulativeBitch Santana]] got [[SmugSnake Sebastian]] to confess that he purposely injured Blaine by lacing a slushy with rock salt before [[EyeScream throwing it in his eyes]]. Turned out she hid a tape recorder under her breast the whole time.

* An episode of ''Series/MyTwoDads'' had the Judge taking a cell key from a cop and locking herself in with Joey, then ostensibly storing the key in her chest when the cop demands it back.

* ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'': Kensi uses a bra holster in the Season 3 episode "Neighborhood Watch".

[[folder:Theater]]
* This trope gets mentioned in the 1948 Alan Jay Lerner/Kurt Weill musical ''Love Life'' in the song "Economics":
-->''Now Edna used to slip her husbands\\
Pay down her chest\\
And just to keep it extra safe\\
She never undressed!\\
Now that's good economics,\\
That's good economics,\\
That's good economics\\
But awful bad for love!''
* OlderThanRadio: In ''DieFledermaus'' (1874), Eisenstein has a ladies' watch that he charms pretty girls with. He is disguised as a Marquis at a dinner party, and his wife (unbeknownst to him) is disguised as a Hungarian countess. He tries to seduce her, and three guesses where she stows the watch. (It is ''intended'' to be worn like that, mind, as it's a highly steal-able item.)
* Playfully subverted in ''Theatre/AnnieGetYourGun''. After Annie's younger sisters lock up her guns before her big showdown against Frank, each of them tries to tuck the keys down the front of their dresses for safekeeping. And each time, the keys fall right to the floor. Annie's little brother decides to keep the keys in his pocket instead.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Granny Crotony from the adventure game ''VideoGame/ArmedAndDelirious'' uses her support bra as her [[HyperspaceArsenal inventory]].
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', this appears to be where Yuna and Lulu keep potions, judging by the animation when they use one. Hilarity ensues when you teach Yuna the Use skill. Apparently the girl keeps grenades in there.
** Judging by a trailer for ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers'', a Selkie named Belle appears to pull a crystal out of her cleavage.
* In an otherwise short-and-forgettable flash game, ''Bush Royal Rampage'', while being guarded by George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II has her tiara shot off, which only serves to anger her. She then pulls out a piece of plastic no bigger than a poker chip from her cleavage... which expands into an uzi!
* In ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'', Maria keeps the three keys to a triple-locked door tucked into her short skirt, in her boots, and in her cleavage, in that order. While she's opening the door, James attempts to sneak a peek to no avail.
* The ''VideoGame/GuildWars''' female assassin underwear has a dagger between the breasts.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''
** Nohime apparently keeps a [[HyperspaceArsenal massive arsenal]] under her kimono, including a rifle, a [[MoreDakka two-barrelled]] [[GatlingGood gatling gun]] and a rocket launcher.
** That's nothing compared to Magoichi, who is apparently capable of summoning hand grenades, a shotgun, a machine gun and a bazooka from her [[OfCorsetsSexy corset]]. Either that, or some sort of [[HammerSpace secret dimension]]. Though she does at least keep her pistols strapped to her thigh. All ''infinity'' of them.
* In ''VideoGame/MadWorld'', the three geisha you save in the Asian Town level [[spoiler:appear during the final boss battle, pulling health-restoring items from their cleavage and tossing them off to you if you're running low. Oddly, the [[AnnouncerChatter announcers]] make no comment on this.]]
* Meryl Silverburgh of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' fame stored a key card and ''Desert Eagle pistol'' inside her cleavage, as well as an untold number of magazines for said pistol.
* In ''VideoGame/WildArms3'', Maya Shroedinger has an attack called "Calamity Jane" where she shakes her skirt and a ''gatling gun falls out''. Yikes.
* In ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'', Jill Valentine can carry more items than her allies, Chris ([=RE1=]) and Carlos ([=RE3=]), despite the fact that both of the guys are demonstrably stronger than she is. This is especially noticeable in ''3'', where Jill's wearing a tube top and miniskirt, while Carlos is wearing combat gear loaded with pockets.
* In one of the cutscenes in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', she hides a round in VSC.
** in [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta2}} second game]], she puts Loki (companion character who can turn into a squirrel) there.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'': Mai Shiranui ''[[PaperFanOfDoom Kachou-sen!]]''
* Although he is a man, this appears to be Link's {{Hammerspace}} in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''.
* Judging from some of the animations in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'', this is used as Valanice's and Rosella's DistaffCounterpart to Graham's and Alex's TrouserSpace.
* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Discworld}}'' game, when one of the gods puts an illegal monster on their gameboard (read: Discworld), The Lady saves Rincewind's life by hiding him in her cleavage.
* This is where [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Trish]] keeps her CoolShades in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' has [[DistractedByTheSexy R]][[AbsoluteCleavage a]][[JigglePhysics o]] and her prayer slips. And later, the '''[[GagBoobs Fox Rods]]'''!
* [[ForeignFanservice Elirin]] from ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'' keeps a lighter in the cleavage of her [[PlayboyBunny bunny suit]], and uses it for some of her KiAttacks.
* [[MsFanservice Crazy Tracy]] from ''VideoGame/CaptainRainbow'' (originally from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'',) keeps her pocky (A Japanese Snack) between her [[GagBoobs large breasts,]] as well as a cellphone that she leaves on vibrate.
* Nurse-ninja Valentine of ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' stores a number of objects between her quite sizable breasts (which is saying something, considering the [[WorldOfBuxom rest of the game's cast]]), including throwing stars, syringes, and a thermometer.
* Mad Moxxi in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' seemingly stores an unbelievable number of items in-between her not unremarkable breasts, which she will reach into when offering the player an item. These can range from submachine guns to pistols to even shields or relics. This may be excused, however, because of the game's use of small, digitizing "storage decks," one of which she could conceivably have tucked conveniently into the front of her shirt.
* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'': Well, it's probably not so secret considering how much cleavage she's displaying, but Batman steals the Joker's party list out of the front of Harley Quinn's top after defeating her.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/RoninGalaxy'': In the beginning of the second chapter, Leona manages to keep her sword hidden in the upper folds of her kimono, even past the gaze from possible onlookers such as Cecil.
* Spoofed in this ''[[http://askalty.smackjeeves.com/comics/379118/cleavage/ Ask Altair]]'' comic -- the method makes no sense in the character's case.
* A ''Webcomic/TheDevilsPanties'' strip shows Jen and one of her friends getting ready for a night on the town. Club clothes for women often have no pockets and they were helpfully [[OfCorsetsSexy wearing corsets]]. Jen and a group of corseted women also used this trick during a Medieval Re-enactment weekend, storing assorted melee weapons. When the ladies are attacked by bandits thinking them unarmed, HilarityEnsues.
* Tootsie and Alejandra of ''Webcomic/LasLindas'' demonstrate the trope [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/archive/comic-8-3/ here]].
* Parodied with a rare female "down there" version in ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'', where Jigsaw hides her Hammerspace inside her... wait for it... ''[[FunnyAnimal marsupial pouch]]''. LateToThePunchline moments ensue when she reaches in to get anything.
* [[AuthorAvatar PMJ]] the Hamster's personal assistant Helga provides her boss with transportation this way in ''Webcomic/SequentialArt''. One could say it's the [[{{Pun}} "breast seat in the house"]].
* {{Justified|Trope}} and {{discussed|Trope}} in ''Webcomic/TheZombieHunters''. DisasterScavengers Maureen and Sammie make use of these to smuggle [[{{plunder}} lipstick and cigarettes]] on the sly while on salvage missions for their IslandBase of ZombieApocalypse [[ActionSurvivor survivors]]. As Sammie puts it, "That's what tits are for." Their teammate Jenny later plays this [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] when she crank calls her team [[TheCaptain captain]] (and [[BattleCouple longtime]] [[UnequalPairing boyfriend]]) for their amusement:
-->'''Milo:''' What're you wearing?\\
'''Jenny:''' ''(having shoved two comically [[VisualPun large cans]] down her tank top)'' Oh, I got a nice, tight shirt on. It really shows off my cans... they're nice... and... ''cylindrical''.
* Genderbent in ''WebComic/{{Prequel}}''. Gharugg keeps things in his abs.
* In ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany'', after capturing the pirates, [[HandsomeLech Marty]] frisks [[BloodKnight Tiren]]. The ExtendedDisarming sequence leaves a mass of weapons greater than her, and he is creeped out by where she keeps her shirukens. Also noted on her profile page:
-->''Through intense training, Tiren has learned to hide an innumerable amount of weapons on her person, regardless of what she happens to be wearing.''
* ''ShreddedMoose'' did this with a word bubble's tail. It was allegedly so vile that even the most caustic critics were afraid of comment on it beyond pointing out that it's there, AndThatsTerrible.
* ''Webcomic/GirlsWithSlingshots'':
** Jamie's pet kitten gets lost there a few times. [[spoiler: It's implied that the kitten was a soldier who died young in a previous life, now getting a hero's reward.]]
** And Jamie's sister uses it for a hidden liquor stash, which she dares {{Ha|rdDrinkingPartyGirl}}zel to get for herself when Hazel's nervous about going underwear shopping with her. [[spoiler: The bottle contained water that time, it was a MagicFeather ploy so Hazel would stop freaking out about her boobs.]]
* As Webcomic/BustyGirlComics shows us, this compartment is good for other things aside from weapons, such as:
** [[http://bustygirlcomics.com/post/34905408955/smuggling-raisins Sneaking in candy at the theater.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Dreamkeepers}}'': At least one of the Indigo's has used this.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Lisa [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-10-23 pulls out photos]] from between her breasts to prove that [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-10-16 a guest comic]] is canon.
* In ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', Atsali collides with Castela and her smartphone falls between her embarrassingly ample breasts. Castela outright [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/it-chirped/ searches]] to find the phone (and the next page, while non-canon, reveals more loot).
* In ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'' Sara'hilana hides two vials, one containing a potent poison and the other the antidote, in her chest plate after an escaping {{Ninja}} passes them to her prior to being captured. [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=10038 Later]], this leads to a humorous misunderstanding when Sara attempts to tell Chrys'tel and phrases it as "I have something for you inside my chestplate" and Chrys, assuming Sara is [[TheTease flirting with her]], curtly reminds her that she's in a relationship with her brother.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* [[TheHighQueen Khanzarina]] Misha from ''Roleplay/OpenBlue'' hides a handgun in her cleavage. Rumor has it that she keeps her saber in there too.
* The spectacularly busty Winter Pierzina and her viral "Bra Purse" series spoofs this, although she admits that she really does this on a regular basis.
* ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' v4 pre-game has a bizarre example, where a character puts around ''6 to 8 jello shots'' down her bra. Needless to say, this is treated as SnarkBait among many handlers, to the point of borderline MemeticMutation. In a previous game, Maxie Dasai - somewhat more realistically, stows a pistol in her shirt. This is lampshaded by the student she's fighting, who has to restrain himself from ranting at her about gun safety. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the more serious afterwards, as her opponent, Adam Reeves, tore her shirt and bra open to get to the gun, leading to him {{rap|eAsDrama}}ing [[MoralEventHorizon Maxie]].
* Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses
** WebVideo/MarzGurl plucks a folded stack of money from her bust to pay [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] for one heckofva night in "[[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/specials/22935-linking-up-with-linkara Linking Up with Linkara]]".
** While reviewing ''Anime/{{Interstella 5555}}'' with other crew WebVideo/PawDugan, [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Nella and Elisa]], [[WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis Jew Wario]] is skeptical at the sight of the female lead tucking a card between her boobs. Lisa responds that it's just one of those special things about being a lady. To demonstrate, Nella pulls several tins of food out of her bra. Shocked, Jew Wario turns back to Elisa, who has produced [[{{Hammerspace}} three books and a pair of sandals]] from her cleavage.
** Dominic jokes about all the things that have gotten lost in [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft's]] [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/vgcon/11858-ep6lara cleavage.]]
* In the KingOfTokyo episode of TableFlip, Suzy gets a card that prompts her to roll a third die. She only has two, so a staff member tosses her one from offscreen. She misses it with her hands, and while the guys assume it landed on the floor, she sheepishly fishes it out of her showgirl costume. Cue laughing from everyone.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS13E1TreehouseOfHorrorXII Treehouse of Horror XII]]'' features a HAL-9000 CaptainErsatz who is given to Patty and Selma. Selma has the self-destruct switch down her shirt, leading to the comment, "No, don't put it there."
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corporate tycoon]] "Mom" hides the controlling device of the world's robots in her bra. At the end of the episode it's also shown that Professor Farnsworth keeps the controls of his giant albino shouting mutant gorillas [[TrouserSpace in his pants]].
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Chris' substitute teacher hid ''everything'' in her boobs, including a whole class' worth of tests. She even had a machete in there. And then there's the time the [[RuleOfFunny raccoon]] that kept [[BrickJoke attacking]] Peter jumped out from between Lois' breasts after she undid her blouse. It was the [[RuleOfThree third]] time the raccoon attacked Peter.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''
** The teacher also stows many things in her Compartment. Yakko commented, "What else you got in there?"
** The key to Minerva Mink's diary in "Moon Over Minerva".
* ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'': "Dark Heart" features a sequence where Franchise/WonderWoman carried Comicbook/TheAtom in her cleavage. Good thing she didn't inhale...
* WesternAnimation/RubyRocketPrivateDetective [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9P9I9CN7Ww keeps her cigarettes in this particular area.]]
* Granny hides the hotel key here in the now famous Creator/TexAvery cartoon ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''
** When the Monarch proposes to Dr. Girlfriend, they're about to have sex and she's completely naked. He's therefore understandably baffled when she pulls of list of concessions he needs to make out of ''nowhere'', though his reference to how it's "undoubtedly moist" shows that the Monarch has his theories.
** "I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills": Doctor Girlfriend pulls an aerosol can from her cleavage, while wearing her [[{{Stripperiffic}} Queen Etheria costume]] to boot!
* ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'': Miracle Grohe keeps a list of all the students who are on the starvation drive in her blouse.
* Cliché from ''WesternAnimation/{{Stripperella}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'', "Utopia or Deuteranopia?" Aeon hides the key in the [[{{Stripperiffic}} top portion of her costume]], only to depose of her top a few seconds later. She later retrieves the key from her ThongOfShielding, bordering on a case of TrouserSpace.
* Near the end of one WesternAnimation/PepeLePew cartoon, Pepe is looking for Penelope, thinking she has maybe returned to the perfume shop. Penelope, who finds a blue Pepe to be extremely hot, comes in behind him, closes the door, and drops the key down the front of her coat. It's a PoeticJustice ending: Pepe had been chasing her throughout the cartoon because a spill of whitener had left her tail with a skunk-like streak. Towards the end, she fell in a rain barrel (removing the white on her tail and giving her a cold so she can't smell anymore) while he fell in the blue paint (covering up the BO that made her run away earlier). Now ''she's'' chasing ''him''. Several Pepe Le Pew cartoons have these turnabout endings.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': in "Pretty Poison", Poison Ivy retrieves her poison lipstick from her cleavage.
* A use of not getting past the radar in ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'': The Kablammy Awards episode ended by giving the award to the winning cartoon. Where's the envelope? In June's dress. But seeing as she's ten and well, doesn't have anything, they got away with it. [[Radar/KaBlam But so did a lot of other things.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/GrandmaGotRunOverByAReindeer'', Cousin Mel often hid things between her breasts like Austin Bucks phone number, Santa's letter, and some money she received from Bucks.
* Cornfed's girlfriend Tamora from an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' hid things like Cornfed's phone number and her note to him in her enormous breasts.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' episode "The Ungoofables", Peg's great-grandmother hid a soda recipe in there.
* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in some old ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' cartoons: Olive pretends to hide things (mostly money) in her cleavage, but her hand descends all the way to her boots/shoes.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', "The Mystery Solvers Club State Finals": Principal Quinlen keeps her very moist cell phone in between her highly visible cleavage. Don't misread that, the phone is moist because she fell in the pool and lost the top button of her blouse, [[BeautifulAllAlong along with her glasses and ponytail.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Madame Xanadu in "Denial" puts her money in her cleavage.
* ''WesternAnimation/StickinAround'''s own Stacy Stickler is a rare young girl example of this, since she does this with a bottle opener to prevent Bradley from opening a bottle of Mr. Fizzy until after he helps her clean up her closet.
* Luanne in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' stuffs dollars in her top to hide them from Bobby in the episode "Joust like a Woman".
* A girl also did this in the ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'' episode "Date Bait" after Butthead gives her some dollars.
* ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseCatwoman'' features Selina retrieving her whip and a golden cat collar from inside her suit by way of her undoing her top. This is quite impressive considering just how tight we see the suit really is.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Max Jets" Roger's girlfriend Gina hid their marriage documents that wouldn't leave her any of his money after he died in her cleavage.
* WesternAnimation/BettyBoop often retrieves items from the front of her dress, usually a compact mirror with makeup. Makes sense since her usual [[TheFlapper flapper]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} dress]] doesn't have any pockets.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Truth be told it [[TruthInTelevision really is a handy place to keep stuff]]: Cellphones, MP3 players, lipstick, money, credit cards...
* During the U.S. Senate investigation of the Iran-Contra Scandal, Sen. Howell Heflin (D-AL) accused Lt. Col. Oliver North's secretary Fawn Hall of smuggling papers out of the White House in her brassiere..
* During their infamous performance at the Video Music Awards, Music/BritneySpears, Music/ChristinaAguilera, and Music/{{Madonna}} would stick their microphones down their cleavage when they were dancing. It wasn't that noticeable on Madonna, since she was wearing a black tuxedo, but on the other two (especially Britney), it was [[http://cdn.idontlikeyouinthatway.com//pictures/20060912/spears%20madonna%20aguilera%20vma/bsca5.jpg odd looking.]]
* There have been bras designed with a pocket between the cups to hold money.
* There have also been bras designed with a holster between the cups. There just aren't many good places for a woman to carry concealed, y'know.
* Those frilly gowns with corsets worn by ladies of the pre-industrial age did not have any pockets. Where did the ladies keep love letters? In the Victoria's Secret Compartment!
* Efforts to {{avert|edTrope}} this trope in real life are one of the big reasons that premodern police forces kept a few "matrons" on staff -- female police officers who wouldn't cause quite as much [[HilarityEnsues hilarity to ensue]] in a search. Even today, police and other law-enforcement departments, for legal and practical reasons, keep females on the rolls to handle anything beyond a basic on-the-spot frisk.
* In Massachusetts there was an infamous case where a state senator was caught [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dianne_Wilkerson stuffing bribery money into her bra]].
* Quite a few girls who go to parties in an outfit designed without pockets will keep their phone in there.
* Wedding dresses don't have any pockets, and neither will the bridesmaids; a few strategically placed tissues can be quite handy if anyone's a little tearful after the big moment.
* In the 1950s, the "Miami Brassiere Brigade" stole hundreds of thousands of dollars of coins from phone boxes (it went to the company where they worked) by putting it in their bra. The things you learn from ''Series/{{QI}}''...
* There is [[http://www.knitacondomamulet.com/bra-breast-pouch-condom-a.html a knitting pattern]] for a bra with a pocket. While not in the cleavage, it claims to be able to hold condoms [[note]]which is actually a bad idea, since body heat can weaken the rubber in a condom, which is also why they don't recommend that men keep them in their wallets[[/note]], change, and other small items.
* ''Hurricane Katrina Rescues'', an animal rescue programme, mentioned that just prior to Hurricane Katrina when people where evacuated to Texas from Louisiana via coaches people were smuggling their pets on board with them when there was a no pet policy. According to the Houston SPCA, one such animal smuggling lady managed to hide a ''cockatiel'' in her bra.
* An anecdote from the filming of the original ''Series/DoctorWho'': apparently during the filming of the 1987 episode "Time and the Rani", the actress who played the female villain, Kate O'Mara, held up recording because her stick-on beauty spot had vanished from her face while on location, which meant they couldn't film her as it would have caused a continuity issue. It turned up an hour or so later... down her cleavage.
* Creator/JamieLeeCurtis demonstrated on ''Series/TheLateLateShow'' that she kept a Palm Pilot and other items in her bra. May have been a call back to ''Film/TrueLies''.
* When S. Epatha Markerson won a Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance in ''Lackawanna Blues'', she had her acceptance speech concealed in her cleavage. It created a really funny moment when she mentioned that it "moved" and she couldn't find it, and a really heartwarming speech when she had to wing it.
* In a marching band with woodwind instruments, this is actually quite reasonable. Marching band uniforms don't always have pockets, and woodwind players always need a spare reed on hand.
* Many female shoplifters will attempt this. You'd think women would keep stolen goods ''away'' from where most men are looking. Actually, [[GenreSavvy they're cashing on it]]. If a dude tries to make a grab for the stolen "goods", the shoplifter can easily [[WoundedGazelleGambit start screaming he's a pervert]].
* There's a [[http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/695317-cops-surprised-by-squirrel-in-womans-cleavage news story, complete with footage]], about a Midwestern woman being questioned by the police during a murder investigation who had a baby squirrel pop out of her cleavage several times during the interview. Each time, she just pushed it back down without comment.
* It is, or was, common for women to keep their lipstick in their bras even when carrying a purse. The warmth softened it, making it easier to apply evenly.
* Paraguay earned a lot of supporters at the 2010 FIFAWorldCup after international press caught hold of [[http://www.brainstorm9.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/larissa1.jpg Larissa Riquelme]]. It was later discovered to be [[HelloBoys part of a mobile phone company campaign]] - less explicit than the one [[http://img.over-blog.com/535x635/0/51/46/84/billboard/Larissa-Riquelme-football.jpg she did later]].
* Girls often tuck ipods into their cleavage when running around the track in gym class or at gyms so they can listen as they run.
* For "smaller" girls, the side of the bra can be substituted for between the boobs, especially if they wear a size too small or a push up bra. This should be the side of the breast, NOT under the armpit. Generally used for phones or iPods. Be careful, this may cause an odd lump under the shirt.
* Sports bras create an actual 'pocket' between the breasts since they're made in one straight piece of fabric instead of discrete cups. Beware stuff shoved in the top making its way down between the breasts and out under the elastic strap, especially if it's heavy or the bra's a little tight--the notch at the base of the breastbone can create a gap under some circumstances.
* Jennie Stencel from WXII apparently can [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOPMfDdyeyQ&feature=related hold quite a bit in her bra]].
* The [=WonderBra=] has been recommended to travelers as a form of money belt, putting extra cash into the insert pockets.
* Larger-breasted women are especially lucky in this area in terms of how much stuff they can hold in this compartment without it being noticeable. With large breasts comes large difficulty finding shirts that actually fit properly, so assuming that she doesn't tailor it later or isn't excessively fat, the shirt will go over the bust and hang down. If a larger breasted woman is in this situation, she can put amazing amounts of stuff under the breast that can create quite a lump, but is quite invisible if she keeps her shirt on. This is sometimes called "infinite capacity".
* Many women keep cash/credit cards tucked in the bra even if they do have pockets. A woman may not notice if someone picks her pocket in a crowd, but it's a sight more noticeable if someone tries to reach down her bra.
* One company now sells a bra-mounted beverage pouch for women. They call it the [[http://www.thebeerbelly.com/The_Winerack_p/200-007.htm Wine Rack]]. According to their press releases, it holds 25 fl. oz., and makes an A-cup into a DD.
* Female operatives in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII were specifically trained in the use of all possible hiding places on their persons, especially the ones most men would be reluctant to examine too closely. This was most assuredly among them. This aspect of training has most likely been retained.
* Can lead to case of FanDisservice if you're a cashier and a larger, older customer feels herself up in order to pull out a wad of cash...that's ''moist''.
* A [[http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/loaded-gun-hidden-in-vagina-576432 teenage delinquent]] in Tennessee combined this with CountryMatters after police caught her with a stolen pistol hidden in her vagina. The gun's owner "noted that he would eventually like “the little fellow” returned, but added that the weapon would require “a bath in bleach.”"
