[BUG] Major Clothing Restrictions

So I've noticed over the years of playing this game that there seems to be quite a few issues with character clothing.

For instance, many times, I see the release of dancer/slave outfits and the last time I checked men could be both these things. Yet when I try to equip them, I get a restriction error! I don't believe any of my female characters have had this problem.

There are of course many other uses for dancer/slave wear and sometimes my characters want to wear them to bed, instead of the nasty, uncomfortable default boxers they have to put up with. As you can see here, my character is clearly upset at having to sleep in them again:

PS I also think there must be a graphical bug with the upcoming 'Magnificent Dancers Armor Set'. As you can see from this image (courtesy of it looks as though parts of the outfit aren't showing.

I just feel it would be more magnificent if we got to see more of it, and less of the default female character body. Just a heads-up in case this gets through testing.

Please can something be done about this? It's been going on for years now.

Thank you for reading.

I have this problem with my Agent, as well, and a related issue with the Formal wear not being a wearable by my female characters.

I've reported a few times since launch, every time being told my ticket has been "escalated" for "review", but no fix has come.

I've also run into this on several occasions. My Sith warrior is most displeased - it's hard for him to maintain his tan and attractive physique when he can't find any clothes suitable for exercise! More shorts and sleeveless tops for men are needed, stat!

This can't be working as intended right? There are 22 male companions capable of displaying gear compared to only 11 female. A lot of work was put into updating the male companions to give them actual skin. (For which you have my thanks even though Scourge still wears Mira's jacket the pretty way).

It can't be working as intended that there would be two sets of new armor in an armor pack that would be useless to 2/3's of the companions and half the characters. In previous packs the dancer's gear was fairly common. If that is going to be the case again then I can be almost certain that purchasing a hypercrate will result in a lot of stuff that I can't use and if the trends of past crates are an indicator I won't be able to sell them either (until they're embargoed but really dudes).

This seems like a mistake.

I've had this problem as well! I can make my male characters look bare to the waist, but below that it's clothing from hips to floor. Yet I look at the female characters and they can run around and fight wearing nothing but some ribbons and the Force holding their breasts and butts up, even when flipping through the air in Force Leap. Tell me, am I doing something wrong with my male characters?

Oh, and lately I've noticed in the newer choices of pants for male characters that not only are they hips to floor, but the manly bulge at their fronts seem to be flattened. I don't think it's a graphics issue, as I can see breasts just fine.

Problem confirmed with my Trooper. Squad teambuilding exercises involving dance moves are rendered pointless if we are arbitrarily restricted from wearing matching outfits.

I have encountered this bug as well. It seems to be quite prolific, there's got to be something that can be done about this.

I just don't understand how male dancers are supposed to make any credits without access to the official dancer outfits. This puts these hard working men in an unfortunate position. Some of them have families! Bioware, think of the hungry children.

This bug needs to be addressed, asap.

I noticed this too. I was understanding of the earlier slave/dancer sets having this issue, and figured, well, I guess what's done is done, and goodness knows there are enough pieces of older gear that have problems. But going forward, I had hoped we would not see the same problem again.

It makes no sense at all that male characters can not wear dancer outfits, it's not like they can't dance or have an inability to be sexy. And I can't imagine that Bioware is intentionally being so sexist, especially after all the complaints they got about the previous slave/dancer sets having this issue.

Please fix!
