Liquid body armor is a more advanced version of cloth armour and is a heavy duty body suit tailored from ballistic cloth, with the layers of cloth impregnated with Shear thickening fluid. The fabric absorbs impact energy and distributes the blow over the body, which possibly results in bruising.

While this sort of clothing is not suitable for formal use, it does not appear out of place in casual settings, and is not culturally perceived as armor.
