As a woman old enough to remember the bodysuits of the late 1960s, I
think this is a non-starter. To be as delicate as possible in
explaining, why, consider the mechanics of the most frequent reason to
seek out a concealing bush...one unbuckles one's belt, unbuttons, unzips,
lowers. With a body suit, one continues and unsnaps, raises, etc.
Unhandy as a rubber crutch as my GF would say. Difficult enough at home
or work, but on a hike while carrying a backpack? At night, with a
flashlight in one hand?
I don't think it would be terribly popular.
