She is wearing stretch vinyl, which I agree would be a nice choice. Another option (second Amora look) would be 'wet look' spandex, sort of a happy medium between the high shine of the vinyl and the usual flat dullness of spandex.

To me I would use leather or vinyl to make the corset of Viper (that third link). Being strapless, you need a material that has more support and structure to it.

First link would definitely take spandex or something similar.

Second link you can really use anything, as you've got seamlines that will allow a lot more leniency.
