Oh yes, it's a onesie.

Are there cycling-bib style onesies that are not for cycling?

I'm looking for something like this cycling bib, but without the butt padding.

All I can find are swimsuits, but I'm looking for a onesie I can use for land sports. I specifically like how short it is. I've tried searching for unitards, leotards, and onesies, but I'm not really finding what I'm looking for. The few onesies I've found are calf length, and I really would like something above the knee.

Does anyone make these?

I think a wrestling singlet could be what you're looking for as long as you're not concerned about the lack of zippers.

athletics (aka track and field) unitards also fit the bill.

"Biketard" is a good search term (and a ridiculous word). Here's an example.

Yes, rowing is another sport that favors unitards, although not bib style.

These are also called "short" or "shorty" unitards.

"Singlet" gets you a range of options. All kinds of sporting people wear them.

Spandexman.com has a huge selection of high quality singlets in a variety of colors, patterns, and sizes. I'll warn you that it's mildly erotic though.

If you love everything about those bike bibs except the padding you could always get a seam ripper and remove it. I used to ride bikes with someone who did just that for some reason.

Tri suits will have mininimal to no padding (as they're meant for running as well). Some have more, some have less.

Came in to recommend tri suits as well.
