"Sexy Blue Striped Shirt Girl", also known by the acronym SBSSG (and further known as Sarah Stripes by listeners of the LOST: Down the Hatch podcast), is the nickname, coined by fans, given to the survivor depicted by Faith Fay who is a middle-section survivor of Flight 815. The character has developed a minor cult following in various fan forums. The nickname comes from a blue striped shirt that she wears in the airport scenes and early beach scenes. The character's final appearance was in "Fire + Water", because Faith Fay then moved to California and ended work on Lost. However, she appeared in a memory when Jin and Sun woke up in "The End".

Faith Fay, the actress who portrays Sexy Blue Striped Shirt Girl, has done a Lostpedia interview describing her character's backstory. In the interview, Faith states that she would have been willing to return to Lost if the producers had wanted her back.
