Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed KingEdit

The dangerous bustier only has a Defence bonus of +1, but changes Jessica Albert's appearance. Obtained after trading 99 Mini medals to Princess Minnie, with another one being found in the Heavenly Dais. It is a required component of the Divine bustier along with the Shimmering dress or it can be sold for 2,900 gold coins. However, it is not recommended to sell it, as there are only two in the game.

  • In the 3DS version, Red can also wear the Dangerous bustier, but it does not change her appearance. Additionally, the bustier's appearance on Jessica has been altered slightly to make it less revealing.
