• A bodysuit is basically a leotard that has snap closures at the bottom (crotch), making it more convenient to wear under other clothing - no need to strip to go to the toilet. It covers the torso, and might have sleeves too. (They were very popular in the early nineties - every girl at my uni would wear them as a top with jeans or a skirt as their dress-up attire.) A cat suit would generally be a "unitard" - a leotard with legs and probably arms too. Cat suits are sometimes worn for dance and exercises where you'd need a lot of flexibility in clothing. (In black they are also popular wear for movie cat-burglars and jewel thieves.) Bodystockings are lingerie made from a stocking-like material which covers the torso, legs, and usually the feet - basically a cat suit made from fishnet, lace, or similar material.
  • A body stocking is made of stocking material, like what's in pantyhose. A bodysuit is more like a leotard material and a catsuit can be made of a lot of different materials like lycra, chiffon, spandex, latex, or velour, but may use less elastic materials, such as leather or PVC.
