In fact, in one scene, Weiss (whose aura was nearly depleted) pushed Flynt through a lava pillar, and the most it did was to cover her with ashes while Flynt's clothes were completely intact.

* In the ''Corean Chronicles'' by L.E. Modesitt Jr, there is a fabric known as nightsilk. High quality nightsilk is not only warm and comfortable, when it is worn in a tightly fitting outfit, it can absorb impact damage. The reason that most people in the story give for the main character of the first trilogy surviving all the stuff he gets put through is because he's wearing bulletproof underwear (In truth, he needs to reinforce it with his psychic powers to survive the more extreme incidents, but casual observers know about his nightsilk body stocking and don't know about his powers). This material is not widely used as military armor due to a limited supply and the high manufacturing costs (The hero of the first trilogy can acquire nightsilk clothing mainly because his family makes it).

* In ''Film/{{Blankman}}'' the titular character has accidentally invented a way to turn ordinary fabric impact damage absorbent and proceeds to put together a costume in which to fight crime. [[spoiler: Unfortunately he neglects to do this for the costume he puts together for his future sidekick and then neglects to mention this to said person when they finally put it on, most likely for that one reason.]]

* Subverting this trope for the sake of FanService is pretty much the whole point of ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}''. The titular heroine's costume seems to be about as durable as wet tissue, and her main weakness is the loss of powers as she accrues ClothingDamage. [[spoiler: Played with in that the actual durability of her suit is linked directly to her psyche. The less willpower she has, the weaker her costume and powers become, which makes for an unfortunate catch-22 when her self esteem is already so low.]]

* An episode of ''Series/LoisAndClark'' has Dr Klein explain to Superman that he has an aura that makes skintight clothing like a second skin for him. It's not merely about resistance: Superman was asking why, after being [[IncredibleShrinkingMan poisoned with a shrinking potion]], his costume was still fit. [[FridgeLogic But why would the cape be affected too?]]

* The ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'', much like the source material, gives ComicBook/BlackPanther a vibranium-lined suit that lets him shrug off ''machine-gun fire'' with pretty much no reaction.
