To start with, you'll have to find a four-way stretch vinyl (stretches both right-to-left and up-and-down).
It won't stretch as much as spandex would, so you'll have to make allowances for extra darts or seams. If you're lucky you might be able to hide them in the design.

You could also look into a coated spandex to see if there's a matte finished vinyl look or pleather look one, I know there are wet look spandex you could try at Spandex world or Spandex house
