[GUIDE] Need Something Skimpy? MALE EDITION!

I present to you the guide that you didn’t even know you wanted!

There’s plenty of well known skimpy transmogs for female characters. But what about all the males out there who want to show off some skin (or fur)?

No worries! I got you covered! …Or shall I say UNcovered!

Here’s a collection of everything I could find that exposes the most skin on males. Skimpy legs and chest pieces galore! Everything will be shown with the matching chest and leg pieces and I’ll provide links to the full sets as well. This guide isn’t class-locked either, so only class raid tier sets with look-a-likes will be shown. All pieces shown here are still obtainable as of this posting.

For males, what will qualify as “skimpy” for chest pieces will be anything that shows the midriff, back, or things that are sleeveless. For Legs, anything that is above the knees.


Probably the most lacking armor type for truly skimpy sets. But plate does offer some pieces that aren’t afraid to show a little skin. True warriors don’t need full coverage afterall.

Starting off we have nice little set that shows off some belly buttons as well as some lower back. Comes in 3 colors. From Left to Right we have the Ornate Mithril Plate featuring no sleeves. Conqueror’s Plate in gold and Bloodscale Plate in pink for the truly courageous.

Like tank-tops and arm bands? Look no further than Alabaster Plate set and it’s recolors! From Left to Right. Alabaster Plate in White, Valorous Plate in pale yellow, Gothic Plate in brown, and finally the Heavy Lamellar Plate in a sickly greenish/yellow color.

Next up is a TBC set with a breast plate only held on by thin straps. In gold there’s the Bloodfist Plate, while in dark purple is the Darkcrest Plate. For silver there’s the Truesilver Breastplate but no pants for that set unfortunately.

Who needs a full breastplate when you have rock solid abs! In dark metallic there’s Chromite Plate, in silver Field Plate, in blue Jouster’s Plate, and lastly red in the form of Embossed Plate.

Here’s some stuff that really shows off the mid section. From left to right, we have Exalted Plate, Brutish Plate, Warleader’s Plate, and a dark blueish/indego Exalted Plate recolor.

Show off your six-pack with this set! In blueish gray there’s the Grimscale Plate. Shattered Hand Plate in gold. The Khan’aish Breastplate on the Worgen offers a slight variant on the Shattered Hand set. And for guys who like harnesses, there’s the Talonguard.

I believe there’s some sort of proverb saying that the armor of god has no back, well this set is no different! While front might look like full coverage, the back is no more than a simple vertical plate strip with straps connecting to it. There’s 5 colorations of it, from left to right Heroic Plate, Darksoul Plate, Heroic Plate (gold recolor), Earthforged Plate, Fel Iron Plate, and sadly only the chestpiece which is Thick Obsidian Breastplate.

Here’s a set that show’s off the lower back as well as some armpits. In a standout blue and red is the Zandalari Vindicator Plate. For a more darker blue look there’s the Deathbone Guardian Plate. There’s the heavily metallic recolor of Deathbone Plate. And lastly only a simple breastplate in the form of The Exarch’s Protector.

These next 2 sets seemed to have been designed with females in mind. But for those in touch with their feminine side, there’s the Revenant Plate set and it’s recolors. In purple Revenant Plate, Templar Plate in blue and gold, Emerald Plate in green, Runic Plate in red and blue, and lastly Thorium Plate in sort of a maroon and red color.

For those who like aggressive cod pieces and a sleek feminine breastplate that really shows off the back. (From left to right) look no further than the Imbued Plate, Enchanted Thorium Plate, Commander’s Plate, and the Hyperion Plate.

Here’s a few standalone plate sets from the Pre-Wrath days that deserve some mention. On the human on the far left is the Heavy Plate Leggings matched with the Tunic of the Dragonslayer. Giving you a nice tank top and short shorts look. There’s a nice looking corset look on the Bloodelf with the Warlord’s Plate. Our friendly Kul’Tiran is sporting the Bogslayer Plate featuring a nice tank-top. The Tauren is ready for battle with the sleeveless Warbringer’s Plate

Here’s some plate version of a mail set. Features a revealing breastplate with a nice lovely harness strapped over it. Comes in Blue and in green just the breastplate Elekk Rider’s Plate

Here’s some pieces of incomplete sets that fit the skimpy bill. Most are bits from mail sets. We’ll start from left to right and top to bottom. The orc on the upper left is showing off his strappy Barbaric Iron Breastplate. The troll has on the An’telas Plate Shirt featuring his midrift. The dwarf sports the sleeveless Carapice of Tuten’Kash. Our green orc is wearing Durotan’s Battle Harness in honor of the orc for which it’s named.

Feeling demonic? Try out the World-Defiler’s Plate, featuring a strappy chestpiece, and short shorts with hip pads.

I’d like to take a moment to thank the Zandalari Empire for giving us this next set.

More skimpy options than plate gear. Let’s hear those chain-links jingle as those buff guys show off their skin!

Next up is a set that is similar in nature to the Fenclaw, but this time with more of a scales look. In gold Burnish Mail, in blue Defender Mail, in pinkish purple Netherstalker Mail, and in green is the Green Dragonscale Mail with the chest and legs

This set is nice an rugged looking. Providing a harness look as a well as a breastplate that leaves the mid section exposed. In green is the Brackwater Mail.

Here’s a few unique stand out sets for you.

First up is the Ravager’s Mail. It’s basically no more than some copper plates with red strings holding it all together. The pants are pretty much a brown loincloth with the web of plates, leaving lot’s of skin exposed. Think of it like wearing a net.

Finishing off the guide, here are some notably skimpy heritage armor sets. Of course they are limited to their respective race.

The main feature being the nice X-Shaped harness that leaves a lot of the upper body exposed. From left to right we have the Blackrock Recolor, Warsong Recolor, and the Frostwolf Recolor.

Both of the Tauren races made out like bandits when it comes to skimpy heritage armor. The Highmountain Tauren Heritage Armor features some great looking shorty shorts. And the chest piece is a revealing harness with big totems strapped to the back.

The regular Tauren get the Ancestral Chieftain Heritage Armor. And this set is fantastic! The leg piece is literally just a loincloth. Doesn’t get much better than that. Their upper bodies are left very much exposed as well with an almost shirtless look. Those Tauren really know how to skimp out!

The little foxy Vulpera get a set with a mostly shirtless look. It’s the Vulpera Heritage Armor. No more than a piece of cloth wrapped over 1 shoulder and under the other.

The Zandalari Trolls also get a very nice set with their Zandalari Troll Heritage Armor. Their pants are nice and very short. While the chestpiece is almost no more than a large necklace, leaving lot’s of good upper body exposure.

Last on the team Horde, the Goblins get an honorable mention with their sleeveless state-of-the-art X-52 Goblin Heritage Armor.

When it comes to revealing heritage armor, the Alliance got pretty skimped (no pun intended). But there’s still something at least.

The Void Elves pretty much get to go shirtless with their Ren’dorei Heritage Armor

If you want to get technical, the legs on the Mechagnome Heritage Armor are literally just a metal crotch plate. But, then again, anything in the leg slots for Mechagnomes is just a crotch plate.

Patch 9.1 brought us some cosemetic Covenant sets of note.

Finally a truly skimpy set in Shadowlands. This cosemetic set from Kyrian covenenant rewards is simply great. Features a toga-like design, with lots of leg showing and no sleeves.

There is also a robe version of this cosemetic set for all recolors as well.

The Night Fae bring in a nice sleevess tunic with a lovely belly window. There is the silvery Garb of Pure Spirit. Garb of the Azure Dusk comes in a nice blue. You can get the Garb of Fall’s Promise in green. Lastly there is the Garb of the Twilight Grove in purple from certain Korthia quests.

The Venthyr are a bit more modest than the other Covenants here. But with this set, they are going sleeveless! From left to right is: Sinful Inquistor’s Vestments), Court Inquisitor’s Vestments, Renathal’s Field Inquisitor Vestments, and finally the Redeemed Inquisitor Vestments.

If I missed anything, feel free to let me know. Hope everyone enjoys!

Heavily inspired by Lull’s guide HERE. Consider this guide to be the male version of that guide.

Happy Transmog Hunting!

EDIT: Finally updated for 9.1


Yay for Mankinis! :kissing_heart:


Great job on the guide! Thanks for the work you put into it.

I don’t have many male toons, but more options for transmog is always welcome.

Though I do have my Zandalari Troll Druid as uncovered as I could get him. Who needs all those pesky clothes in the way when you are trying to shift, lol. Plus it just seems to fit his primal nature better.

Just wanted to add, not sure if it’s mentioned in any of the sets, but there are a few belts that make amazing pseudo Codpieces.

Demonbuckle Sash of Argus with nothing but a Loincloth underneath, Ooh la la!


You got my favorite Battle Seeker Chestguard, but not the

that are even more revealing than the top. Awesome guide–thanks!
