Skyrim: 22 Best Lore-Friendly, Non-Skimpy, but Still Sexy Armor Mods for Females


For your warrior:

Faraam – also known as “comfyknight” this armor is basically a Nord girl’s best friend.

Ebony Valkyrie – I love how this armor looks like black oil, shimmery and badass and the like!

Eisenplatt – this can be a skimpy armor if you don’t wear the skirt with it, but the armor looks heavy enough that I’ll let it slide …

Empire Mercenaries – this is the best armor for an Imperial character IMO and has great details!

Northgirl – a very form-fitting chainmail armor for your Nord.

Plate armor – another great armor from ZZjay’s set, this is perfect for your Imperial to knight around in.

Freya’s Raiment – a hot mix between armor and dress, as you can see … I can’t seem to find the original link for this armor any more so if you want me to upload it, just let me know!

For your forsworn:

Einherjar Brigandine – I think armor might actually be meant for a male but I think it works well on the female Forsworn, too.

Ling Ciel (Vanille Armor) – an import from Final Fantasy XIII that looks perfect in Skyrim somehow.

Anyway, these are just my personal favorites that make for gorgeous screenshots. Let me know what your favorites are and keep checking back on my blog … I’ll be posting an article on my Favorite Male Armors, as well as a Best Skimpy Male & Female Armors post (will be hilarious) soon!

If any of the links in this post don’t work, just let me know in comments and I’ll upload the file to my site just for you!

  1. How’d you know I was looking for armor just today? Unfortunately, I was looking for my male character but a few of these have male versions.

  2. I like these, especially the Yurika one.
    My favorite of all, though, is Tribunal armor
    Silverlight armor (with the chainmail it is not exposing but very form fitting) also looks good

    • You’re welcome! I also just got a new PC and just vanilla’d my game so I’m back to modding square 1 :D Finally get to try out those performance-killing ENBs! I’m also 99% sure that armor is the Shadow Fang armor that comes in the TERA armors pack for Skyrim. Looks really HD up close :)

      • Gotta say so far I’m loving this play through. I installed the HD textures, Pure Weather, Real Water Two, Frostfall, iNeed, and a few other immersion mods and am trying to run it as role-playingly (and without cheating) as possible. Makes it a whole new game almost!

  3. This is awesome! I’ve been looking for a list like this for ever! So many non-skimpy lists are just boring plate armors but this is exactly what i like!
    Ashara Princess of the Woods is an armor i think you might also like!

  4. Love the list , finally found a cool armor set for my battlemage, so thx. Would you mind telling me what sword that is with the Faraam armor tho? I cant seam to find it for the life of me ..

  5. Hello,
    when I click the link to Rogue Sorceress it lead me to a retexture. I’m guessing the original file was removed for some reason, is there any other way to get it?

    • I was able to find it on a Russian website. Jumped through hoops to get it. Seems to be 0.4, so I’m not sure if that’s the latest one. Should I try & throw it up on Google Drive or something?

  6. Wow! This is excellent. I don’t mind sexy as long as it doesn’t distract TOO much from immersion & lore, and this list of yours fits that exactly. Nexus is inundated with pervy “armors” that barely qualify being called ‘two strips of material’.
