Being misused for any kind of cleavage.: Absolute Cleavage get usage counts

This trope has a very specific definition: "a dress or top is specifically cut to show the entirety of the wearer's cleavage and the top bit of her stomach"

That means that just showing a lot of the breast doesn't count. The cleavage also has to be low.

Now there are a lot of solutions for this, but it's late, so I'll just post the wick check I did so far (30 of them):

I think it's the name, it's pretty vague.

There might also be the issue of people just wanting to list everything they find hot. Maybe.

[up], [up][up]I agree with you both.

So this likely will need a new name, and if there is yet another legit trope being misused for this (which will need some discussion to determine if there is one), we should make it.

This is about the dress/fashion, right?

This is what Absolute Cleavage looks like. It's a very low V cut out in a dress that plunges low enough it's near or sometimes even past the navel.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

DQIX is right [1]

The one thing I do think we need is a Pushup Cleavage trope or something to where they are like in your face thing and they are clearly showing off, that seems to be where the misuse is coming from

Or one of those where its kind of impossible to not be drawn to it type things Kind of like Cleavage Window but pretty much the entire top half of the chest (not in a bathing suit though) Like this

How low does a v cut have to be to be considered Absolute Cleavage

Low enough to go past the breast area, so about the top of the stomach at the highest.

So, belly button or bust?
 13 shimaspawn, Sun, 15th Jan '12 7:22:09 PM from Here and Now Relationship Status: In your bunk
It's sometimes right above the navel, but belly button +/- a couple of inches.

Deboss: yeah, pretty much.
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

If I were trying to establish it, it would have to start right where the bottom of the boob ends. I was originally going to say right at the mid curve, but if it's an existing term for a specific cut, I'll bow to that. You just need to be able to show where this stops for those of us not up on our dress cut terminology.

Then what name would show the trope best?

Well, the fashion term for this is Plunging Neckline. Though that's not really something that you can look at out of context and know what it is. It also, like most terms in fashion, tends to get misused for cuts that aren't really this trope.

Yeah, that's one case where the pre-established term won't help.

Cleavage To The Belly?

That sounds like a trope about saggy breasts.

[up] Sounds a bit gory.

That just looks awkward. Also, how could a cleavage term be confused for gory? Cleavage already implies a cut in the context of fashion.

Because it makes me think of the y incision cut in a autopsy as that's the first cut I think of that does cleavage and down to the navel. Cut in my mind jumps right to cutting things rather than fashion especially as most of our tropes with the word cut in them are about cutting and it has no other fashion related words in the title.
