I'm assuming spandex, but bodysuits can be made of other materials such as leather/pleather, so you need to do two things:
1) determine what kind of material you're sewing, and if your machine is 'rated' to handle it.
2) get the correct needle for that fabric type

For example with spandax, I know my machine can take it. I need a zig zag stitch and my blue tipped (spandex type) needle.
