Perhaps the most common type of outfit in superhero stories. Heroes and villains wearing full body suits of spandex, nylon, or some other fabric (even {{Phlebotinum}}). This was because early superhero outfits were based on the outfits worn by people in the circus, including the bright colors that made them visually distinctive, and it stuck as a tradition, even as the days of the circus waned. Being easier to draw likely didn't hurt either.

Being easier to draw Showing off their bodies as if they were almost naked likely didn't hurt either.

This does not mean superheroes wear what are usually called tights in Britain, or Pantyhose to Americans. See Series/Supergirl2015 for a superhero wearing those tights.
