Though leather garments are always fashionable, this season it’s the timeless leather bodysuit that’s all the rage. Buttery variants have been seen in the newest collections of designers from Mugler and CAMI NYC to more affordable choices like shapewear brand SKIMS, and the internet and social media have quickly caught on.
The reputation of leather bodysuits as being uncompromising, unpleasant, and even agonizing is undeniable. However, this problematic subset of clothing has developed into items that are at least tolerable to wear all day without making you count the hours until you can take them off. There is a greater variety of bodysuits available today than ever before. This includes larger sizes, more colors to accommodate a broader range of skin tones, and a wider variety of forms.
In the same way that a denim jacket or cropped moto jacket can update a basic tee and jeans, a leather bodysuit can update your go-to dresses and skirts. They’re simple to style and come in the ideal weight for somewhat cool days. Fitted shirts may be tucked into trousers for a casually elegant look, while a cut-out version can be worn during ladies’ night out to become the center of attention.
Browse our 9 favorite leather bodysuits, ranging from sensuous to simple, colorful to neutral, and loose to tight fitting. Continue scrolling and maybe you’ll grab one or more to add to your wardrobe.
Akira Naughty But Nice Faux Leather Sleeveless Plunge Bodysuit
Akira’s sleeveless take on the bodysuit is one to consider. This slick piece is made from a faux leather fabrication and features a sleeveless silhouette, a sexy plunging neckline, princess seam detailing, polyester lining, and an exposed back zipper.

This bodysuit from River Island has been fashioned from faux leather with a touch of stretch for a snug fit at the bust and a notch at the neck for further support. The garment has a popper-gusset closure and cheeky bottoms that are attached.

PrettyLittleThing Navy Faux Leather Racer Bodysuit
The PrettyLittleThing Faux Leather Racer Bodysuit is the no-hassle alternative to the tucked-in tank. Featuring a racer collar and faux leather fabric in a navy blue tint, this garment also has an exposed zipper in a shade that matches the material. This bodysuit serves as the ideal undergarment, thanks to its high-cut leg opening and thong back. You may dress it up or down; either way, this modern staple will bring a touch of flair to your wardrobe.
Good American Better Than Leather High Neck Bodysuit
This figure-flattering bodysuit is both sophisticated and practical, thanks to its high neckline and sleeveless design. Good American’s take on the trend comes in the form of a faux leather bodysuit that will give any ensemble an edge. The mid-weight material’s thong butt is meant to contour and smooth while providing unrivaled softness, flexibility, and comfort.
In regard to the bodysuit, one reviewer says, “This is the most amazing bodysuit. This is seriously so flattering and I got so many compliments. It’s tight throughout but not too tight in the arms or armpits which is unheard of! You will regret not buying this.”
Forever 21 Faux Leather Cami Bodysuit
The flexibility and hold of this Forever 21 faux leather bodysuit are courtesy of the polyester-cotton combination it’s made from. It works well as a standalone piece, as a base layer under transparent tops, or as an everyday option with high-waisted jeans. In addition to its flattering v-neckline and straight back, this top is noteworthy for its thin cami straps.

The ultra-soft Fits Everybody underwear bottom makes this bodysuit the coziest piece of clothing you own.
“Love this bodysuit. I paired it with the faux leather pants but I’d wear this bodysuit with blue jeans as well. It’s nice and tight. The bottom being thin is a nice bonus. I struggled to get it on but I know how to next time,” one buyer shared.
