** [[MsMarvel Carol Danvers]], who did espionage work when she was depowered, noted that often, going unnoticed is less important than nobody remembering your face after you leave. Drawing attention to other areas can help with that.

* Selene in ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' wears one of these constantly. She's not actually a spy (she's closer to an assassin), but often has to be stealthy - she is a vampire, after all. The sequel explains her instantaneous Vampire Healing Powers but never mentions the fact that her suit seems to heal itself as well.

** While the Major's normal combat wear shows more curves than the standard models, it's generally quite practical, and her male squadmates wear active camoflage suits of the same design. The major exception to this is in the ''Stand Alone Complex the 2nd Gig'' episode ''Cash Eye'', which plays with the infiltration and espionage tropes, and repeated references to ''Ocean's Eleven'', and has her wear a catsuit that fits this trope to tee with little purpose. Perhaps the outfit let the android fetishist CorruptCorporateExecutive to mistake her for a combat android.

* ''TheExecutioner'': A male example is Mack Bolan's blacksuit, worn not only to hide him in the dark but also for its psychological effect.

Added DiffLines:

* Comicbook/{{X 23}}'s variant of the Wolverine costume edges towards this. While Logan's costumes are generally sleeveless two-pieces, Laura's version appears to be a full-body suit with long sleeves.

* Miu in ''Manga/HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'' wears this for nearly every fight, which allows for the artists to outline every curve for her t&a even when they decide it should be reduced to just covering the essentials for the rating.

Added DiffLines:

* Rather cleverly invoked in 1970 British art film ''Secrets of Sex.'' [[ClassyCatBurglar A female cat burglar]] wearing very tight and fanservice-y leather catsuit breaks into house, deliberately gets caught by its owner, seduces him with her sexy looks, sleeps with him, and then robs his house with him being unable to call the police, because if he does, his wife will know he cheated on her with the burglar.

A variant on this is the tendency of female ninja in {{anime}} and superhero comics to wear excessively {{stripperiffic}} outfits (see for example the female teachers from ''Manga/{{Naruto}})''. A more realistic and practical variant is the leather motorcycle jumpsuit.

to:

As you may have imagined, this is not something real-life (or realistic fictional) female operatives would wear in the field, though a black turtleneck and cargo pants arguably pull off a similar look while being a bit more plausible. In fact, this trope originated with ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}, whose iconic use of this outfit is both the TropeCreator and TropeNamer.

* Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} (DCComics) almost always, but not always, wears these.
** Catsuits were first introduced by this legendary Bob Kane character after which they are named, and which would also influence the U.S. erotic fetish scene.

During any infiltration or stealth operation, the female lead will wear an impossibly tight catsuit. It's almost always black, may be shiny leather or latex. It's never a camo pattern, and it can't have pockets except for a utility belt and/or gun holster. There will often be [[ZipMeUp a single zipper on the front]], which will result in AbsoluteCleavage when it's unzipped. The suit will frequently be accompanied by [[CombatStilettos ridiculous high heels]]. If you see someone in one of these, there's little she can say to convince you she's not a spy or a fetishist outside of [[LatexSpaceSuit a Sci-Fi series]].
