Female action stars have notoriously been scantily clad and donning undeniably sexy costumes throughout superheroine history. While the worst offenders are comic books (where tops are ripped and boobs are popping out on seemingly every other page), live-action TV and movies aren't much better. This list of female action stars with ripped costumes showcases some of the worst offenders: from the original damsel in distress (King Kong's Fay Wray), to Galaxy Quest's Gwen DeMarco (whose outfit progressively becomes more and more shredded), and Padme Amidala's perfectly exposed midriff, they're all completely cringeworthy.

There have been too many times women action stars' costumes ripped in ~sexy~ ways, but these are the most egregious moments to date.
