Yet {{Frilly Upgrade}}s give her even more elaborate dress with more flounces and frills, layers and tiers, overskirts and pettycoats, and some actual GiantPoofySleeves. Just check out [[ImageLinks/PimpedOutDress the image links page]].
* In the film of ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'', there isn't much that's really elaborate, despite the opulence of the era and the film in general, but Madame Suliman shows off her dress with the gold trimmings, [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry jewelry]], and [[PrettyInMink fur collar]].
* Kikyo of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' wears [[http://www.zerochan.net/950446 a yellow dress]] with lots of ruffles and frills, a tiered overskirt, pink petticoat, a NiceHat with flowers and a puff of feathers, and the bandages on her face and CyberCyclops mask. She also wears [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple a purple dress]] heavily trimmed with white ruffles.
* ''Manga/IkokuMeiroNoCroisee'' has a number of elaborate dresses, such as the [[https://yande.re/post/show/209750/ech-ikoku_meiro_no_croisee-kimono-yune kimonos that]] Yune wears, and all the frilly and flouncy dresses Alice and Camille wear.

** [[https://yande.re/post/show/194264/alice_blanche-camille_blanche-claude_claudel-dress Alice's most common dress]] is pink with white frills, trimming with dark pink ribbons and bows, overskirt that is like an apron on the front and back, and oversleeves that are two layers of flared fabric.
** Alice even let's Yune [[http://randomc.net/2011/08/08/ikoku-meiro-no-croisee-the-animation-06/ wear one of her western style dresses]] that is orange and white, with loads of frills and ruffles, striped underskirt, yellow petticoat, yellow GiantWaistRibbon, and has a red jewel holding the ribbon around the neck together (also could be worn with a [[NiceHat frilled bonnet]] or [[HairDecorations hair bow]]). But due to the crinoline skirt, poor Yune has trouble moving around in it.
* In ''Anime/{{Interstella 5555}}'', Stella wears one to attend the "Gold Record Awards", that has a skirt that is cut to show off her legs in the front (but enough on the front to avert ShowgirlSkirt), and has so much fabric it bunches up in frills.

* Clarice's wedding dress in ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro''. The current Empress of Japan liked it so much that [[TheRedStapler she had a real-world one made for her wedding dress]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Ayaka, who can often be seen wearing absurdly elaborate outfits on normal days. There's also Tsukuyomi, who wears such outfits to ''{{sword fight}}s'' where they'll undoubtedly be [[ClothingDamage torn to shreds]]. The next time she appears on-screen, she'll invariably have a new one to destroy.
** And now everyone is at a ball. Which is ''definitely'' [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not just so Akamatsu could dress up the girls in fancy clothes.]]
** Asuna's Go Go Enslavement outfit in chapter 284.
* The "Princess of the Crystal" in ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'' wears a [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lqibyih4W81qbjtqb.jpg white and black dress]] that has a large ShowgirlSkirt that has giant ruffles edging it.

* When Mayura is temporarily possessed in ''Manga/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok'', she wears a light purple dress adorned with pearls.

** The girls of the Lobelia Academy wear fancy dresses are part of the [[{{Takarazuka}} Zuka club]].
* ''The'' dress in ''ParadiseKiss''. The characters actually spend several volumes making it.
** Also the main character's dress in one of the previous edition of Yazagaku Fashion Contest in the {{prequel}}, ''Manga/GokinjoMonogatari''.
* ''Anime/PetitePrincessYucie'' has several, given all the royalty and aristocrats. Yucie herself imagines wearing [[PrincessPreferPink pink dresses]], including dreaming about a FairytaleWeddingDress of pink lace with GiantPoofySleeves and a puffy skirt. Her actual Platinum Princess dress is pink as well.
* Most of the [[MiniDressOfPower mini dresses of power]] in ''{{Manga/Pretear}}'' are pimped out as well, and themed to their elements.
* The nature of the "Princess" program in ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'' requires wearing fancy dresses, most loaded with frills and lace. This is subject to whoever's in charge of the sewing club: the program during Arisada's time skewed more toward KimonoFanservice.
* Rue gets one in a GorgeousGarmentGeneration at the end of ''Anime/PrincessTutu''. Also, in the last shot of her, she's wearing a [[PimpedOutDress Pimped Out Tutu]] - or at least as pimped out a tutu as you can get [[AwesomeButImpractical within practicality]].
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has its titular character dressed this way to the point where she's deemed the most elegant magical girl in all of them. Expect lots of frills, petticoats, ribbons, and puffs.

* In ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'', Deedlit [[http://gallery.anipike.com/showphoto.php/photo/581/cat/2/page/ wears a white]] dress with OperaGloves, puff sleeves, ruffles edging the low neckline, and a skirt of several layers of lace and gauze. She complains about how tight is is, hoping to get Parn to [[SheCleansUpNicely notice how good she looks in the dress]].
* ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'' was loaded with fancy dresses.
** MarieAntoinette of course got the most dresses, with a standout dress being one that is not only [[PrettyInMink trimmed with ermine]], but ''the ermine itself'' is [[GemEncrusted decorated with diamonds]] (it's the same with the ermine on her cape). And at least in the manga, she wore a nearly identical dress for her husband's coronation (the difference were a frilled neckline, different hairstyle, and a jeweled headress instead of a little frilled hat). They double as a near WholeCostumeReference to a RealLife one worn by Marie Leszczynska, the previous queen of France.
** [[TheMistress Madam Du Barry]] had quite a few herself, showing her favor from the king.
** Rosalie also got several. One had an overskirt with frilled trimming, and long hanging sleeves.

* The dolls in ''RozenMaiden'' wear incredibly frilly ElegantGothicLolita outfits.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had an episode involving {{Fairytale Wedding Dress}}es, many with frills, lace, feathers, or fur.

** Jupiter once wore a long, black dress, that had a large, red rose embroidered on the skirt.
* ''ShakuganNoShana'' has dresses to die for.
** So does ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima''. Could this be a common thing with J.C. Staff? Take Janettes dress and Henriettas dress in particular.
* ''ShatteredAngels'' has some very fancy and elaborate dresses, even for servants. School uniforms looks very elegant, especially for the boys, and the student council. Then there are the dresses worn by Absolute Angels.
* In ''{{Slayers}}'', Princesses Amelia and Princess Martina normally wear a practical and slutty outfit respectively, but they do wear grand dresses a few times, Amelia in pink dresses, and Martina in her wedding dress.
* Both sets of battle dresses in ''Manga/WeddingPeach''. The first stages are fancy wedding dresses, and the second stages are mini dresses with frills, gold trimming, and [[FluffyFashionFeathers feather trimming]] after they got a FrillyUpgrade. Peach's first stage dress is very similar to her mother's wedding dress, although the GiantPoofySleeves were trimmed with gold on her mother's dress, while Peach's are trimmed with ruffles.
