Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'', Zidgel, Midgel, Fidgel, and Kevin all wear orange skintight jumpsuits. Enforced, in that the low-budget computer animation wouldn't be able to depict looser clothing.

* Samus Aran's Zero Suit from ''{{Metroid}}''. Similar to Tony Stark's outfit, it's to interface with her [[PoweredArmour Power Suit]].

* Terran Ghosts in ''{{Starcraft}}'' and its sequel are elite commando agents who wear this sort of outfit, albeit liberally embellished with spy gewgaws. This is in contrast with run-of-the-mill troopers, who wear incredibly blocky PowerArmor with ShouldersOfDoom instead.

* Many gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' wear skin-tight clothes, though none have a full bodysuit--if only because [[SleevesAreForWimps almost none of them have full sleeves]]. For many this is based more on such clothes' associations with dancing (since many perform literal {{Fusion Dance}}s and Pearl is a DanceBattler), but the single-piece, sleeveless jumpsuits Peridot and Jasper wear are definitely a form of SpaceClothes.

** Alphonse's [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1701261/page-523-new-costume-time/ interface gear]] and Layla's [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1719409/page-531-and-were-finally-off/ containment suit]] could qualify as well. Both are very form-fitting and futuristic, but they also have very... bulky extremities which disrupt the sleekness.

* Subverted in a ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode in which Bender steals lots of stuff from a public swimming pool in an attempt to gain notoriety; he also stole a banana hammock of sorts, which he wears.

* Nena Trinity's season one outfit in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. Not to forget her brother Johann, who wears a midriff-baring top and short shorts.
** Also Tieria's in some shots.

* Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''.



** When time-travelling shenanigans result in Kim and Ron having to save the world from [[spoiler:Shego]] who has become a dictator, everybody not in LaResistance is forced to wear skintight suits in her signature colour.
** Kim's [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman battle suit]] could count, as it's a visual ShoutOut to the original ''Film/{{Tron}}'' suits.

* In RealLife, form-fitting material is used in a wide range of applications. Extreme sports, the space program, the military, and many other activities and organizations require form-fitting outfits for optimum performance.
** In military applications, however, this would be averted in combat situations and where there is a high risk of fire, as many form-fitting materials tend to ''melt'' when exposed to extreme heat, sticking to the skin and making burn injuries much worse.
** Space suits often have form-fitting under layers, to regulate temperature and/or to maintain pressure. But they will often have looser outer layers, to protect important things like air tanks and air tubes.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeggings "Jeggings"]], a portmanteu of "jeans" and "leggings", have become a popular fashion choice of the late '00s and early 2010s. They're considered more practical than jeans in many ways, including the ability to be worn under a skirt or dress, being thin enough to tuck into high boots, and of course, retaining a sexy snugness while still functioning similarly to jeans.
** Ditto for other forms of skinny jeans in the '00s.
* Also, the largely popular yoga pants. Somewhere, a rich man is bragging to his buddies that he convinced women to wear skin-tight pants that are see-through when they bend over.

* In one respect, FutureSpandex predictions of form-fitting clothing really ''have'' come to pass ... but with undergarments, not outerwear. Most of the people one encounters on the street are likely to be wearing briefs, panties, undershirt and/or bra that smoothly and snugly wrap their physique, unlike the baggy, elaborate linen or woolen underthings of times past, but (barring a WardrobeMalfunction) you won't actually ''see'' it.

* ''Film/{{Megaforce}}'' has these as combat gear, presumably as they're a BadassArmy using "the most powerful weapons science can devise". They're gleefully derided in the Rifftrax.

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' is an exception until ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. Pilots wore space suits that, while less bulky than modern suits, were still not quite "form-fitting."
