A unitard is a skin-tight one-piece garment with long legs and sometimes long sleeves, usually stopping at the wrists and ankles. It differs from a leotard in that a leotard does not have long legs. The garment can be considered to be a combination of a leotard and tights. It should not be confused with a wrestling singlet. Unitards are worn by acrobats, gymnasts, dancers, equestrian vaulters, athletes and circus performers as well as others who require overall body coverage without impeded flexibility. They come in a variety of different colors. Superheroes in comics and films are frequently depicted wearing unitards. When making sophisticated animated films, such as Avatar, zentai unitards are worn by actors to detect their movements. Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the rock band Queen, was known for wearing checkered unitards and spandex during their concerts in the late 1970s.
