Pop the pieces on the GTN for about 100 credits each. Trust me, they will sell.

We've gotten to the point where this stuff is seriously oversaturated, and introducing more items of a similar nature - or a different colour - just isn't worth it right now. And on the rare occasion we do get a new model for armor involving even an inch of exposed flesh, it's way too excessive. Where are simple low-cut tops, or v-neck shirts? Maybe even just a tunic with short sleeves, or a halter top look chestpiece instead? We're not all hormonal 13 year olds, but more variety can be done with showing skin then what we've currently got, and in more creative ways that might actually find some circulation in the in-game market. 15 odd pages of dancer's gear pieces should be indicative that we're just not interested in any more of this gear right now - there's no demand for it.
For females we have...

Slave Bikini (1 variation)
Imperial Dancer (no variations)
Dancer Top (3 or 4 variations)
Relaxed Outfit (1 variation)

Those variations are color variations (except for Relaxed Outfit which had some slight tweaks), now made a bit useless by dye packs.

You're seeing an abundance of them on the market because they're common and actually dropped like common items, unlike Relaxed Jumpsuit, which was common, yet dropped like a Rare (seriously, I got more +41 Power Crystals and Rare Jawagrams than I got of Relaxed Jumpsuit, which equaled a total of 1 and I got ahold of multiple packs)

Males have...

Relaxed Outfit (1 variation)

Then of course there's the Covert Energy Armor.

I wouldn't call a few of the midriff showing outfits as skimpy, but they number around 3 or 4 with variations.

So basically we have about 9 outfits out of 100+ that are skimpy or show the tummy. I wouldn't call that over saturated.

As a side note: Scarlet Blade isn't a good example, as it's not trying to be anything but what it is when it comes to the costumes. Going to Scarlet Blade and then complaining about skimpy outfits is missing the point of the game.

In-game just now, I saw a Commando (huge gun on her back and all) with her Elara companion out, both decked out in the bikinis.

It looks absolutely absurd.

There is no way in this universe that is anything but a teenage kid or a very immature adult.

Seeing a Sith like that, would think less of it. Seeing hundreds of Sith like that and then hundreds of Rep side characters...yeah...it's absurd :/

It does seem to dye down for awhile, but then jumps right back up! But never really dies down.

It's daft really, but there is less skin on show for female characters when wearing Covert Energy Armour than when wearing any of the Dancer/Loungewear gear.

I certainly would like to see some outfits for my female toons that may show just a bare stomach.

That's not skimpy though. It is, however, 100 times better than the bikini army.

Agreed here too, and on female Aspring Knight particuarly

Lol I was not complaining, I erm quite enjoy the game from time to time. I was pointing out to the OP in my own weird way that complaining about so called skimpy outfits in Star Wars was rather silly of him and then pointing too a game that he could go and complain about.

I like sexy clothes for my toons, and I'm in my forties. I like dressing up my toons and making them look good.

Wearing a brown burlap sack might be ok for some, and if that's what makes you happy, then cool! But why clip someone else's wings, with the things that make the game fun for them? :P
