The divine bustier, known as the mysterious bustier in Japanese, is a recurring bodice in the Dragon Quest series. Designed for women, it typically offers an incredible amount of Defence and either restores the wearer's HP when walking or increases the wearer's Evasion rate.
The bustier has had two distinctive appearances throughout the series. When it first appeared in VII, the bustier appeared to be made out of a lavender lacy material with intricate designs and a orange oval-shaped jewel in the front. The design introduced in VIII appears in all other games that have the bustier. The outfit consists of a leotard made out of purple cloth and features golden wing designs near the top of the bust, gold lacings on the front, sides, and back, two white wings on the back, and a yellow pleated miniskirt attached to the waistline. The top of the bustier is connected with strings to a purple choker that also has golden and white wing designs. It also features white opera gloves and white knee-high stockings, both with purple bands with golden wing designs near the tops, as well as gold wristbands.
Jessica's version of the bustier is worn with purple and gold slippers and she wears purple and gold hairbands on her ponytails. Jade wears purple high-heeled shoes with decorative roses, as well as a rose in her hair when she dons the outfit. The stockings are missing from the IX version of the bustier as leg armor is considered a separate equipment slot. In the 3DS version of VIII, as well as all versions of XI, the outfit was made less revealing by covering parts of the midriff and thighs with white cloth.
The Divine bustier (known as the pure bustier in the original Sony PlayStation Version) has a Defence bonus of +95 and a Style bonus of +92. It can only be equipped by Maribel and Aishe and it restores the wearer's HP when walking outside of battle. Divine bustiers are dropped by Gourdzillas or can be won from the Lucky Panel at the Casino in Buccanham. It can be sold for 14,000 Gold Coins.
The Divine bustier has a Defence bonus of +105 and an evasion bonus of 25%. It can be equipped by both Jessica and Red and changes Jessica's appearance. The divine bustier is crafted in the Alchemy Pot by combining a Shimmering dress with a Dangerous bustier. It can be sold for 37,000 Gold Goins, but it is not recommended to do so as there are only two dangerous bustiers in the game. In the 3DS Version, the costume has been altered slightly to be less revealing on Jessica, covering up all of her legs compared to the PS2 Version.
