hunting for a metaphor

I spent a bit of time trying to find an appropriate metaphor for a woman on the cruise wearing a see-through black lace dress with black lace underwear.  I settled on "as subtle as a flamethrower."


  1. What if she had dispensed with wearing the underwear---what would you call that?

  2. Was it a woman who really CAN wear such or one who definitely should not unless on a cruise for the blind?

  3. To paraphrase (slightly) Dave Chapelle: she may not be a prostitute, but she's sure wearing the uniform.
