What about late 15th-early 16th century Italian? Tons of cleavage! Or Indian? Bare midrifs, tight tops and lots of sparkly jewelry. Or Bronze age Celt? I'm thinking of the infamous string mini-skirt here.

There are plenty of clothes that are sexy by modern standards that are also period, although these girls may need that pointed out to them.
