Explanation:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midriff

Midriff is the front part of the human body between the chest (also called the thorax or bosom) and the pelvis or hips. The term is used (1) in place of the term belly, with its primary external physical feature, the navel; (2) as a synonym for waist; and (3) as a name for the area around (yet mainly below) the diaphragm (particularly including the stomach region).

The midriff is exposed when wearing a crop top or bikini. The cholis worn by Indian women also exposes a thin section of midriff, usually 3 to 4 inches, though the garment is not known for having sexual connotations and is a mark of traditional modesty.
