I am finishing up my first suit and received my latex body suit today. Before I start work on it I want to see if anyone had any suggestions on how to attach the arms and legs to the torso. Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Phil.

What to do is this: Get a long sleeve t-shirt. slide the latex arms on the shirt arms. Glue them using Zap a Gap or a strong adhesive hot glue gun.
Take some liquid latex and brush it over the shoulder edges where they come into contact with the shirt. Let dry. Repeat this process for the torso.
Then, you can take more of the latex and brush it over the seams where the arms and torso come together. I've never done this, but I hear it's teh way to go.
Good luck.

Thanks Carl. I think I have decided to do some of what you described but attach it to thermals. I have someone who can actually sew the suit to the longs to make it hold up a little better. I'm going to try this weekend. I will let you guys know the results.
