This is wearing [[PrettyInMink a fur coat or wrap]] with a swimsuit (either one piece or two piece). It also [[ItsFakeFurItsFine doesn't matter if the fur is real]].

Used for many purposes (aside from actually swimming of course). An obvious one is for SexSells in advertising, regardless of whether the product is the fur, the swimsuit or something else entirely ([[HoodOrnamentHottie often a car]]).

Older {{Beauty Contest}}s would crown the winner with an [[PimpedOutCape ermine-lined cape]], while she wore her swimsuit (along with high heels, which are also not useful for swimming).

Some publicity photos for movie starlets in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood had the actress wear this kind of outfit.

Naturally one of the blatant forms of {{Fanservice}}.

* The ''MissUSA'' BeautyContest once planned for the swimsuit competition to have the ladies wearing a fur coat, but host [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]] was in PETA by then, and said he would leave if they did that, so fake fur coats were used instead, which still counts (he did leave later on, because furs were still offered as prizes).

* Take those geothermically warm natural pools in Iceland where people can swim or laze in comfortably hot water while the outside air temperature is minus ten, centigrade. It's great once you're in the pool. But do you think people walk from the changing room to the pool wearing ''only'' a bathing costume? This is where a fur coat becomes functional rather than decorative.
