Battle armor is less of a fashion statement and more of a utilitarian piece of clothing. There are sharp things in the world that are looking for skin to pierce and usually a good set of plate armor will stand in the way.

Anyway, before we get to inequalities in video game gender representation, we simply would like to ask if this is a practical way to shield yourself from an onslaught of attacks? With the rest of you so mightily armored, why leave such a conspicuous gap? Chain mail is slimming, sexy, and repels swords and arrows.
