AtiyaTheSeeker Wow, that's an incredible art style! Plate corset, hmm. But swords-women are always awesome, and she sells it well. <3
It's certainly better than a chestplate that doesn't guard the stomach. Ideally, you want something that goes all the way up, but if you can't have that, something that protects the stomach is the way to go as the rib cage at least offers more defense than the stomach has.
