Poses plastiques is the practice of posing in nude or semi-nude tableaux vivants, an early form of strip tease. Peformers sometimes wore a flesh-colored body stocking, and a dimity, a bit of draping. A forerunner of the "poses plastiques" was Emma Hamilton, who called her art "attitudes".

There is an albumen photograph of Clara Ward[1] in one of her poses plastiques probably photographed by Léopold-Emile Reutlinger of Paris around 1905.
