* The original ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' gave recruits basic uniforms and kevlar plating, until you researched better armor. "Personal Armor" wasn't quite skin-tight, what with all the plates of alien alloy, but came close. Powered Armor and Flying Armor were, well, PoweredArmor. And somehow all of them were completely fine for use on Mars.

* Actual NASA spacesuits' fabric components, although far from skin-tight, are ''assembled'' by companies that otherwise specialize in form-fitting and, yes, sexy clothing. Because of their experience at working with elastic textiles, the Mercury and later space programs contract out such piece-work to bra-and-girdle manufacturers such as Playtex.

* ''Anime/GoLion'' (or ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''): Akira and his FiveManBand. Its reboot, ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', tweaks the suits to have detachable chest-plates [[spoiler:so that Pidge's surprise GenderFlip isn't immediately given away upon suit-up]].

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': The three pilots wear skintight plugsuits. In a scene, Shinji comments that they keep his body perfectly dry, but he always gets his face and hair filthy since his plugsuit lacks a helmet.
-->At last able to get up and out as the plug split open, Shinji gratefully accepted a thick towel from an orange suited technician waiting on the catwalk, vigorously working to clean his hair of the coppery tasting amber fluid. The skin and airtight plug suit kept most of his body perfectly dry while piloting Eva, but he always had to work to get the last little trace of the LCL out of his face and hair every time he left the unit, accepting it but not liking the necessity of ‘breathing’ it in.

* [[ParentService Misha/Mika]] and [[TheScrappy Kicker]] both wear these in ''[[TransformersArmada Transformers: Energon]]''. Misha's helmet even has a massive gap in the back to let her hair fall through.

** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Unsurprisingly, one of the earliest examples (but not the first one, for once). Kouji began to wear a LatexSpaceSuit in the third episode, and Sayaka always wore one while piloting [[FemBot Aphrodite A]]. Sayaka's was one-piece and tighter than Kouji's though.

* ''Anime/KotetsuJeeg'': Miwa always wore a tight LatexSpaceSuit when she piloted her support unit. However Hiroshi never wore a suit, since he transformed into the HumongousMecha.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'', [[spoiler:Mind***]] wears one when she isn't in a hard vacuum. [[spoiler:However she's forced to go out in space wearing her LatexSpaceSuit since the D10 was badly damaged and didn't have time to put the heavy suit on.]]

** The various combat suits in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', also known as hardsuits, are relatively form-fitting but can function in a vacuum. That being said, they do not provide significant protection against extreme temperatures, extreme pressure, or highly corrosive environments, unless you use models specifically designed for that purpose. Otherwise, the suits actually do look functional and realistic, being covered in plates of ceramic armor, compared with other examples of {{Latex Space Suit}}s.

** An actual spacesuit is used in the Mothership Zeta add-on as a plot-critical item. It's not quite a LatexSpaceSuit, but it's less clunky than modern suits and can be worn in combat without penalty.

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': The pilots wear skintight piloting suits. There’s an especial partial model, prepared for when a pilot has a member bandaged or in a cast. It has to be cinched into place manually. Rei wears it in the first chapter.
** After [[spoiler:finding out she was an Amazon]] Asuka modifies her plug-suit so that it resembles [[spoiler:Franchise/WonderWoman's]] outfit.
