About Zentai/Catsuits

What's a Zentai?

The word " Zentai " comes from the Japanese word "ゼンタイ/全身タイツ : zenshin taitsu " which means "full-body tights". It is is a term for skin-tight garments that cover the entire body.

The original Zentai is a tight-fitting catsuit made of stretchy lycra (spandex) fabric that covers the entire body, also the face. Now you can choose a Zentai made by Spandex Lycra, PVC, Velvet, Shiny Metallic and other new fabrics. The pattern and color of a zentai is getting more and more rich. The fun of wearing a Zentai is here waiting for you to explore.

What's a Catsuit?

A catsuit is a close-fitting one-piece garment that covers the torso and the legs, and frequently the arms. They are usually made from stretchable material, such as lycra, chiffon, spandex (after 1959), leather, latex, PVC, or velour, and frequently close using a zipper at the front or back.
Catsuits, which date from at least the 1940s, can be worn by both men and women, and, despite the name, do not generally have feline characteristics.

There are several variations based on the Zentai suit including mummy bag (similar to a sleepsack) and hybrid suits consisting of either a single leg and arms, or separate legs and no arms

Here are some answer for why would anyone want to wear one?

The feeling of being totally enclosed and separated from the rest of the world. A slight claustrophobic feeling that can be by some experienced as very pleasant.

Heightened awareness of your own body as the compression of the fabric "massages" you from every part at the same time.

Smoothness. Feeling smooth and slippery all over your body is interesting and feels sexy.

Anonymity/masking/transformation. Sense of becoming someone or something else. Zentai will make you able to show all curves of your body but still remaining anonymous. Many enjoy the new "simplified" self when wearing zentai: no blemishes, bodyhair etc.

D/s aspect. Many zentai wearers describe wearing zentai to cause a "submissive" overall feeling, some feel strong and dominant. Many enjoy different forms of bondage while wearing zentai.

Visual & artistic effect. Zentai makes a great costume base for performance art, dance acts, masquerades and carnivals.
