Subsequently, question is, is latex clothing breathable? latex though porous is water proof, most of the water comes from a person's sweat … as for breathable?

Silicone spray works well for a quick shine; but make sure to apply it outdoors, because the spray is harsh. Apply a generous amount of silicone lubricant to the cloth and coat the garment gently with the silicone. Don't rub hard because the fabric is delicate and you can damage the surface.

How do you wear a Catuit?

The key is : layering. You can wear them underneath slouchy sweaters, dresses. You can also tie a flannel shirt around the waist to tone down the look or if you are more daring like me simply layer it with a cropped jacket and pair with military style boots. Add a cool pair of sunnies and you are good to go.
