“Catsuits, Boilersuits, and Racing Suits”

At the Vintagent, Paul D’Orléans writes about the history of one-piece utility suits from boilersuits to Catwoman and Girl On A Motorcycle (1968). “The story of the ‘boilersuit’ and its (super)heroic descendants is a curious tale; a purely functional clothing item historically laden with a mix of Utopian hopes, fantasies of superhuman power, and sexual desire.” (Thanks, Stephanie!)
