If you’ve spent the past few days binge-watching Glow, Netflix’s new original series about a ragtag group of actresses-turned-wrestlers in mid-’80s Los Angeles, you’re not alone. The character-driven comedy is equal parts silly and sweet — and far more empowering than you’d expect for a show starring a crew of spandex-clad women.

Speaking of Glow’s retro wardrobe, it’s one of the series’s highlights. And according to Twitter, it’ll very likely inspire you to invest in a leotard (or 12) of your own. Below, browse a bunch of modern options reminiscent of the show’s stellar workout wear, from bodysuits to bathing suits — because why buy a one-piece if not to wear it with denim on dry land, too?
