Elizabeth Olsen loves her Avengers character, but if she had it her way, she would tweak the costume just a little bit.

“It would just not be a cleavage corset. I like corsets, but I’d like it to be higher. Everyone has these things that cover them — Tessa Thompson does, Scarlett [Johansson] does. I would like to cover up a bit,” the actress, 29, said of Wanda Maximoff’s (a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch) costume in the Marvel series in an interview with Elle.

“It’s funny because sometimes I look around and I’m just like—wow, I’m the only one who has cleavage, and that’s a constant joke because they haven’t really evolved my superhero costume that much,” she continued.

However, Olsen does acknowledge the superwomen costumes in the films are not representative of the real life females and play into the movie’s fantasy appeal.

“I think of the costumes and what we have to wear—it’s more about iconic images, because that’s what these movies are…. I think that’s the goal with the costumes, and it’s not representing the average woman,” she said.
