A downblouse is a form of voyeurism enjoyed by those who are attracted to women, in which they seek a view of a woman's breasts down her shirt or blouse, particularly when she is bending over without regard for the fact that her shirt is loose around her neck. To the voyeur, downblousing is often considered most enjoyable when the breasts being viewed turn out to be bare; i.e., when the woman is not wearing a bra.

There are many websites that promote downblousing as pornography, but in real life, taking photographs of someone surreptitiously is illegal in some countries. Some people consider this brand of voyeurism to be a form of sexual abuse and an invasion of privacy if it is done without consent, which it often is. Others argue that women in public areas can claim only limited privacy expectations if parts of their unclothed anatomy are suddenly visible to onlookers, or even to photographers. The wide availability of camera phones may be the reason for a recent surge in downblouse photographs.

An alternative form of this type of voyeurism is the upskirt—similar to downblousing, but with the intent of viewing up a womans skirt to see their panties, buttocks, or genitalia.
