Khristen, as a female myself, I understand where you come from, these aren't costumes that most of us ladies would wear in real-life, not even for a Halloween costume party. But this is gaming, and in the 10 years I have been a gamer, I've learned to accept that most female chars in games are depicted in one way, shape or form as very sexy, to appeal to a male audience. They either have abnormal proportions (especially in the chest area), show too much leg, too much behind or too much cleavage. I can name only 2 characters that make an exception, those being Portal 2's Chell and Faith from Mirror's Edge.
With TSW having a large number of male players running around with female characters, I don't find it that surprising they chose to go with "sexy" cop, instead of giving us a female cop suit similar to the one on Helen Bannerman in Kingsmouth. I would also prefer less revealing outfits, since I feel the look of my character represents me as a person, and I'd never go for some of the items in the game.
