• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Klänning tillhörande Irma von Geijer, f. von Hallwyl, från 1930-talet - Hallwylska museet - 89093.tif

Tropes about dresses (the modern sense, not including robes) and skirts, or having them as an integral part. To costume designers, few things have the potential for Costume Porn than a nice dress or skirt. Of course, not all of them have to be fancy. Some can be plain, or even skimpy.

And it's considered one of the most prominent ways to tell men from women, with signs and symbols using a dress or skirt to tell that an abstract figure is male or female. It's also a major reason the trope Real Women Never Wear Dresses has that name.

Also are more likely to be Doomed New Clothes than other kinds of garments.

These tropes will likely fall into Rule of Glamorous or Rule of Sexy.
