All of these women's spacesuits remind me of the fantasy of women's armor. The old "chain mail bikini".

I actually saw a girl wearing a chain mail bikini at a renaissance faire once. I wanted to stare, to leer even. But I didn't want to be creepy either. You could totally see her nipples through the chainmail. It was so hard for me to peel my eyes off her but I forced myself to not stare.

But anyway, my point is that most of these female space suits look about as practical for survival in space as bikini chainmail makes for practical armor.

My first evening in Kraków I crossed paths with a lady wearing just a kind of loose fishnet as top. :mrgreen:

IIRC "Kilgore Trout" == Philip Jose Farmer with Vonnegut's permission.
