* Discussed in ''Webcomic/BlurTheLines'' by Rick, who [[https://web.archive.org/web/20170909112816/http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=393 posits]] that it's Under Armor that's sensually form-fitting, whereas "Spandex coats the body like an ill-fitting condom".

* Nearly ''every single'' superhero/heroine that isn't wearing full body armor or normal street clothes dresses in this. It's also somewhat of a case of a justified trope, especially those who are brawlers (hard to grab hold of, if not wearing a cape) or rely on flexibility and agility (there's a ''reason'' that gymnasts wear it). That's not to say that functionality is [[MostCommonSuperpower the]] [[MaleGaze only]] [[FetishFuel reason,]] though...

* The artist of ''Manga/HeIsMyMaster'' decided instead of the typical bloomers that are seen in 99% of anime, she would do spatz -- essentially skintight shorts. In one [[BonusMaterial omake]] (author's comment at the end of a book) she points out that she did it because with the screentone in manga, she can essentially draw the girls bottomless and get away with it.

This is a {{justified|Trope}} in situations where an outfit providing more coverage or concealment would be impractical in other ways. Sports such as gymnastics fall into the coverage without concealment category, as less form-fitting clothing would be restrictive, distracting, or get caught in the equipment while less coverage would exposed the athletes to friction burns. In sports that prioritize the speed of the human body in motion, such as track and field, uniforms tend to provide minimal coverage and are cut to follow natural creases of the human body to avoid restriction and chafing. Conversely, sports that involve speeds high enough to make air resistance a factor such as speedskating tend to minimize the amount of exposed surface area to reduce drag. One of the few fanservice tropes that is often applied equally to both sexes.
