• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Yes, this is one of the hot good endings.


Quinn: So you'll do it?

Daria: Right after I change into my fur bikini. (Tom smiles at this)

Quinn: Daria!

(Quinn storms out of the room)

Tom: Hmm, maybe you should make it easy. Give the poor kids a break.

Daria: I lied about the fur bikini.

Tom: Damn!
Daria, "Lucky Strike"

A two piece bikini, or some close variant, made of or trimmed with fur (either real or fake), or even feathers. Usually considered extremely sexy.

It's an uncommon, but highly pleasing costume. And unless it's heavily adorned, it's a bit more usable than a typical Impractically Fancy Outfit.

Could count if there is just fur trimming. In this case if the bikini is red, and the fur is white, it overlaps a little with Sexy Santa Dress (or even some Happy Holidays Dresses).

Everyday wear for a Nubile Savage. If you are a Jungle Princess, this is your Ermine Cape.

This trope even avoids a Double Standard, as men can have Loin Cloths, the favorite impractical outfit for northern barbarians across the realms of fantasy.

Sometimes the wearer also has a Feather Boa Constrictor.

Compare Seashell Bra, Going Fur a Swim (when the bikini and fur are separate garments), Bare Your Midriff, Black Bra and Panties, An Ice Suit, Sweater Girl, Fur Is Clothing (in which a Funny Animal has removable fur, which might result in this trope), Sexy Santa Dress, Playboy Bunny.

Contrast "Happy Holidays" Dress, Stylish Protection Gear.

No Real Life Examples, Please

Examples of Fur Bikini include:


  • There's a notable variant with the more risqué works involving Petting Zoo People — where their actual fur or hair grows in exactly this kind of shape to cover their naughty bits while exposing as much of everything else as possible.
