Well, there are not that many literal wet sari scenes either.
That seems to be a Bollywood specific trope, perhaps with some
leaking into western media (probably as Conversed Trope
). There are now 5 Indian films, one has three examples. We could very likely collect more — if we had more people troping Bollywood films.
Most of the examples are just ordinary wet clothes — people bathing in clothes, playing in fountain pools or swimming pools in clothes, people accidentally spilling themselves with water, getting wet in rain etc., and of course, there's a big number of zero context example
I don't understand why you think wet saris are more tropeworthy than wet shirt contests.
I believe if there was enough time for the draft to stay in YKTTW
, it could collect several examples from media. I must have missed that draft as I don't remember ever seeing it there.
