A leotard is a skin tight one piece garment that covers the torso but leaves the legs free. It was made famous by the French acrobatic performer Jules LĂ©otard (1842–1870).

Leotards are worn by acrobats, gymnasts, dancers, figure skaters, athletes, actors, and circus performers both as practice garments and performance costumes. They are often worn together with tights or sometimes shorts, or wrap skirts. There are sleeveless, short sleeved and long sleeved leotards.

Leotards are entered through the neck, in contrast to bodysuits which generally have snaps at the crotch, allowing the garment to be pulled on over the head. Scoop-necked leotards have wide neck openings and are held in place by the elasticity of the garment. Others are crew necked or polo necked and close at the back of the neck with a zipper or snaps.

Leotards are used for a variety of purposes, including yoga, cardiovascular exercise, dance (particularly ballet), for additional layered warmth under clothing, and for recreational and casual wear.

Leotards are commonly worn in figure skating, modern dance, traditional ballet and gymnastics. Practice leotards are usually sleeveless. Female competition leotards for gymnastics and skating are almost always long-sleeved.

Many leotards are cut high enough above the legs that they expose underwear. For this reason, underwear is often omitted, or special underwear, cut high on the waist, is worn. Many dance studios forbid underwear. Gymnastics judges can deduct points for visible underwear.

Among exercise garments, leotards may be seen along with other types of garments, such as T-shirts, crop tops and tights.

For gymnastics, the leotard should fit snugly, like a second skin. Leotards that are too big and baggy can prove a danger to both the gymnast and coach. If the leotard catches on an apparatus, the gymnast may fall; when the coach is spotting the gymnast, their fingers may catch in the leotard, resulting in injury to one or both.
