The mystery of the disappearing female armour
It is well known that female armour in most fantasy and sci fi media such as art, comic books, or video games, is seriously lacking in coverage. Unless you take a direct hit to the nipple or crotch you, as a female character, are screwed. Your character though will look implausibly hot but don't worry that vital organs and major arteries are exposed. Or like this fab chart shows us the bits not covered are just immune to any sort of damage (they aren't).
The World of Warcraft is very guilty of this not just in their advertising art but actual game-play. Below is a set of about level 54 plate armour worn by paladins and warriors.
