I ordered this in the black matte lame fabric. I usually wear a M in AA bodysuits but I got this in a size L because I was worried about the fabric/thought it might look tacky if it was too tight and I'm happy I did! I have pretty large breasts and it's tight enough to wear without a bra but not skin tight. Someone else suggested wearing it as a bathing suit which I would definitely do! It's pretty flattering all around.

I bought this in black dots to wear over the silver dot shiny leggings to a club...people wanted to touch me all night long. I'm 5'8", 165lbs, 36d and got a large. I have a long torso and didn't have any problems with the straps cutting into my shoulders. It holds in any kind of tummy you might have, and covers your hips pretty well too. Definitely going to wear this as a bathing suit. If you're smaller chested, you can probably wear it without a bra, it holds everything up. Only gave it four stars because the leg holes started to chafe after a while. Remember to sprinkle on some goldbond and you'll be all set.

I tried this on in the shop and it looked pretty bad which was a shame as I'd been dying to get it! I'm 5'6'' and 135 lbs and tried on a M. I have big hips and a small waist and it didn't didn't fit to my waist at all, there was a gap between the fabric and my waist of about an inch when it was on. And it totally flattened my chest.

I got this in the matte black lame color in a store and I love it - looks great with jeans and without. I'm 182 cm and 77 kg and the large-size fits perfectly.

I bought this in the Lame Matte Black in XS. It looks absolutely sex and feels amazing on. I'm 5'1 32B, small chested but this bodysuit gives a nice cleavage effect! Highly recommended.

I love this bodysuit. Worn under a skirt for nights out it's perfect - it tucks in your tummy and the back cut lets you wear a bra but is still low enough to be flirty. I'm 5'9" and 140 lbs and I got a M.

I'm dying to have this in smoke!

Gold dots/Black is sick! I feel like a sexy bitch in this
January 29, 2010
bought this in gold dots and love it most amazing thing ever. Bought a medium for the length and it is a bit big. after wearing it out one night the gold dots have come off in patches. looks weird now. love love love

Love this! I own black dots/black in M and I'm 5'6", 130 lbs. It's perfect in the torso for me (I'm all legs with a short torso), however, it's not meant for those of us who are thin with big butts. It's loose in the back area because my waist is tiny and my butt is huge. (I usually wear XS tops, and I'm size 7 in jeans) When worn with a belt, it fits right though :)

I LOVE this bodysuit! It's really flattering. I'm 5'10"/145lbs and the large fits perfectly. Its not as low cut as it looks like in the pics. I washed in the washer and it held up well. LOVE.
November 23, 2009
Please help, I don't know what size to get - I'm 5'6 110lbs and I lift weights i.e. all muscle and very little fat, hence I have no boobs and no belly...I normally wear an AA xs but I'm scared that it will be too short, but if I size up my nips will fall out when I move.....no store near me to try it on :( wahhhhhhhhh
October 28, 2009
There were some problems with some of the seams (uneven). I bought this for a costume but had to return. The coverage over the butt is minimal. It flattens the boobs hardcore. Otherwise, if you were to wear it with just jeans it could be cool.

if i wear in under wet look leggings....we i have major VPL ??? (visible panty line)
October 1, 2009
i'm 5'1 with a short torso. au 8/10 C/D which is like 30/32 C/D US i guess. the leg cut for this is better than the uneck short sleeve cos it's not as high... but the minus points for this are mostly due to the material. i cant sew any excess fabric like cld with the cotton spandex leotard. also, this thing in XS doesn't really fit/cover me in the boob area cos it doesn't have enough stretch. i can't go up a size cos then the straps will be too long. i much prefer the uneck short sleeved leotard in which i wear a size XS.

Great please add more colors.

WE LOVE IT
July 6, 2009
OBSESSED. I wear mine all the time. Anything high waisted, any dress really low cut. Makes my small chest look like its not small. Would buy it in every color, but I have the matte black. 5"1' and 120 pounds. fits awesome.
June 21, 2009
i was going to COMPLETELY fall for it... but then i read ; exposure to salt water and chlorine not recommended....
i was planning on wearing it as a bathing suit.... shoud I still buy it and wear it at the beach? and not go in the water?
May 19, 2009
I do gymnastics and i saw this leotard, it was the first one i've seen that was actually cool. But i don't know if it would be okay to do gymnastics in, im worried about things riding up and falling out. I need to focus more on my gymnastics, not that leotard itself. I was wondering, is it okay for Sports?
May 12, 2009
I have tried alot of bathing suits and this is one of my favorites. It is really comfortable, and u dont fall out or have things ride up, and yes it does turn heads.
April 9, 2009
I tried a zillion expensive bathing suits and returned them all until I got this in the black with dots pattern. It may be really simple, but *man* it turns heads! And you can swim in it without worrying about it falling down.
February 28, 2009
i really need to know something!
is it ok to wear these on a night out? what i mean is... how the hell do you go to the toilet ?? is it easy???
February 22, 2009
Robert Webb wore this in black dots/black to do the ballet dance from Flashdance on 'Lets Dance For Comic Relief'
It looks amazing, but I don't have the guts to wear it.
February 11, 2009
i have this both in the gold dots/black and the black/dots/black.i absolutely love it. i do need a bit of confidence to wear the gold one, but it is absolutely beautiful
January 6, 2009
love it in black, im thinking about getting one but ive get this muffin top down a bit more first before going on hol with it as its so clingy. Im about 5ft8 and a size 12 with 34F bust, im not sure which size to get though can some HELP me please.
December 14, 2008
oh my god ! this is amazing, have it in the gold and black dots, looks great under jeans or high waisted shorts.
iv worn this out many times and people go wild for it!
November 29, 2008
this is cute, but not for the girls with the long torsos.
i am 5'8, 130Lbs and i have a curve in my back (and i am sure you do too), and this bodysuit just flattens my back out in a very unflattering way, making my torso look very thick and bulky.
The butt is nice if you dont have too much of a bum, otherwise you get a little squeezing. also the bust gets flattened out a bit, but only from the side. from the front you get a little cleavage.
not for working out or dancing, but a nice top otherwise.
a cute bodysuit!
November 18, 2008
Bought it for my 1980's aerobics themed night out, looks amazing! Escpecailly with a waist belt, sweatbands and leg warmers!!
October 26, 2008
Make this in Purple Dots/Black, please.
October 22, 2008
just bought it and love it...but just wondering what to wear underneath....bra? no bra? anybody know what looks good!?
October 14, 2008
Great fealing fabric (black lame). I'd add vote for higher neck and lower legs and I'd wear it as a swim suit! And rate it five stars!
October 14, 2008
i really love the look of this, but i'm super tall (almost 6 foot) and i've no idea what size to get. usually i'd go for a medium, but everyone's been saying that it's really short in the body...? help!!
October 10, 2008
Make this in silver please!
October 10, 2008
A little short, even if you are skinny - get a size up or try it on first!
October 7, 2008
cant wait to go try this on... i love the gold dots/black
September 12, 2008
I got this in the black lame and I love it - looks great with high waisted skirts and jeans. I'm 165cm and 56kg and the small fist perfectly.
August 28, 2008
Great Bodysuit love it as all my pieces from AA.
August 23, 2008
This is a great bodysuit. I like that it's very low cut, but if you're shy you might feel the need to wear something over it. My only complaint is that the torso is cut too short... I wish they'd add a little length to the suit's center.
August 19, 2008
I HEART THIS BODYSUIT! Cannot wait to purchase this item and wear it with a pair of high-waisted jeans! Rock on american apparel!!!
August 13, 2008
In gold dots/black this is amazing and the scoop neck makes your chest area look great.
the straps can be a bit scratchy and the body is quite short - I don't even have a long body either
the main problem is that the legs are REALLY high cut
like, horribly high
i wouldn't wear it as a swimming costume because of it
however, this looks great layered under skirts and jeans
August 12, 2008
it depends on the body for how low cut it is, i think. cause this isn't low at all on me its actually quite high cut, and the back isnt low either, you can totally wear a bra with it.. it fits like a regular bathing suit like one you had when you were a little kid, it covers all areas. sort of high in the pubic region, high scoops in the leg
August 9, 2008
how low does this go in the back? can you still wear a bra with it?
July 8, 2008
I bought this in Gold Dots/Black and it looks absolutley fabulous teamed with a plain mini-skirt - only down side is the fact it's really quite low.
July 7, 2008
i ordered this online thinking it would fit like the bathing suits, but they fit bigger than the onesie bathing suites, thankfully i know how to sew and AA clothes are really easy to alter, and i made it fit. i have a large in the gold one piece bathing suit cause i have lots of butt, i figured i'd need the same to not cut into my butt. but the back was all flappy in this onesie and not nice to look at. so i say order a to fit size, i wear mainly Mediums so medium really would have worked fine.
July 3, 2008
Im completely down with this style, but the matte black feels like a swimsuit...without the water-bearing appeal. I can't stress enough the need for a cotton/spandex version of this EXACT same style, like some other people have also mentioned. Its a great cut, but the color/texture options are waaay too limited.
June 28, 2008
I cant wait to try this on, looks so hot
June 26, 2008
if only american apparel would make a cotton spandex version of this bodysuit...
June 19, 2008
I bought this in black and it's sooo fabulous. Usually I am a small in AA swimwear but since I have a small bust and the straps are a little long, I got an XS
June 19, 2008
i got this in lame matte black in medium
im 5'1 and 130 pounds and it fits just right and is hott
June 17, 2008
This is reeeaaallly great as a bathing suit!
June 12, 2008
please tell me about sizing! i'm a pear shape (small on top, packin on the bottom) tops i'm small but bottoms i'm usually medium (size 5/6) but i wear a small for the lame leggings. should i go small or medium? please help THANK YOU!!!
June 12, 2008
Disappointing. I bought it when they had pics of the other model in it, and it didn't look high cut at all. I loved it on her.
In real life, its more high cut that it looks on the current model. I'm 5'2" 110 pounds and got small and its too high cut on me and kinda hurts cos its short in length.
5'2!!!!! I'm NOT TALL!?!?!?!
June 7, 2008
I just got this in Matte black, and it's absolutely sexy as hell. Really shows off the body, and holds the ass up.
June 6, 2008
got this is the gold colour, LOVE IT!!!
So flattering, and the cut isn't as high in the pix!!!
Please make this in more shiny colours!!! GOLD LAME!!!!
June 6, 2008
can this be worn as a swimsuit?? cuz i totally wanna.
June 4, 2008
Picked this up in Black Dots/Black in a size small (5'5'', 115lbs, 34b) and it's totally wonderful! I'm a true hourglass shape with a tiny waist and this is super adorable and flattering. Fits on me like it looks on the model (my chest is similar in size) Awesome with dark wash jeans and my amazing sailor shorts especially! Waaayy cute.
June 3, 2008
I can't decide if I want this in Lame Matte Black or Black Dots/Black. . . Or Gold Dots / Black.
May 31, 2008

May 23, 2008
