Black Cat Bathing Suit

The Pros and Cons of a cat swimsuit


(buying via the affiliate links may result in Marcy getting more treats)


Cynthia is perusing the internet. Marcy wanders in, looking for someone to antagonize.

Marcy:  So what are you doing?

Cynthia:  Looking for a new swimsuit.

Marcy:  I thought you liked your ratty 14 year old lime green tankini.

Cynthia:  Not really.

Marcy:  I thought you were in looooove with it.

Cynthia:  No I –

Marcy:  I thought you wanted to marry it.

Cynthia:  Wow. You’re really out of insults lately, aren’t you? That was pretty lame.

Marcy:  Yeah. I need to restock. Please help me.

Cynthia:  What do you think of this cat swimsuit by Ugly Duckling Gal Angel over at Etsy?

Marcy looks at the photo above.

Cynthia:  I was thinking that since bathing suits are the most stressful piece of attire out there – why not go crazy and get a crazy one? That way, no one will look at my cellulite and varicose veins and flabby parts, they’ll look only at my swimsuit in utter amazement and say “Hey! Holy Cow! That is a crazy cat one-piece!”

Marcy:  “Holy Cow” is exactly what they’ll be saying.

Cynthia (suddenly doubtful):  I don’t know, though. This cat swimsuit is kind of … really cool. The question is… Will it look as cool on me?

Marcy:  No.

Cynthia:  So then we’re back to crazy instead of chic.  Sigh… Still, that was the whole idea in the first place. Hmmm…

Marcy happily wanders off, her insults restocked, and hoping to find someone else to antagonize.

Cynthia continues to stare at the cat suit.

Cynthia (suddenly yelling):  OMG! I want that cat swimsuit!

      Oh gosh! Everyone is telling me to get it. What if I actually do?!!! Aaackkk!

    I LOVE the suit. It is a gamble, though, buying online. Can you return it if it doesn’t work?
    Be careful of big waves and diving into pools. Strapless can be hazardous.

      I think it comes with straps.

    We all look forward to seeing you modeling it on the blog.

      Sounds like a dare, Vik! 😀

    Haha. I like your method of redirecting the focus to a crazy swimsuit instead of the parts you’re self-conscious about. I think this suit would do it! Maybe I’m just getting used to cat-themed attire here on Marcy Very Much, but this swimsuit looks pretty chic and stylish to me. I think it’s darling. Am I going insane?

      No – you are not! I am getting feedback from everyone that it is a pretty darn chic swimsuit! But uh oh – I need to get back to some regular outfit posts! Too many cats!! lol

        Are cat clothes not “regular”? 🙂
        I must be doing something wrong…

    LOL…I don’t think that swimsuit is frumpy…I think it’s hot. Love the strapless look…you should def get it if you are looking to replace the green tankini. I bet your hubby will like it even if Marcy doesn’t 🙂

      Oh gosh everyone keeps saying I should get this swimsuit and that I can wear it with a skirt if I don’t want to swim in it! I am thisclose to hitting the Pay Now button! Aaaackkk!!!

    Cynthia, buy the swimsuit! Never has a swimsuit fit a potential owner better. And if you are worried about veins, my friend sprayed me with San Tropez spray tan last year and it totally disguises them. (Though amazingly, I’ve discovered that running on the elliptical is making my veins gradually disappear – have I found the mystery cure?!) I’d message the seller to request straps though, since it’s Etsy she might be able to do you custom ones if it doesn’t come with them…? You are way too pretty to waste away in a lime green 14 year old tankini, okay?! 🙂

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch August 2, 2015 at 8:10 pm

      LOL – my 14 year lime green tankini has definitely seen better days. Interesting cure for veins – but – I don’t WANT to ride an elliptical. It sounds too much like … exercise! Horrors! I have recently taken up adult beginner ballet and I am able to convince myself that I am at a theatre rehearsals and not … exercising!

    So did you get it???

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch August 7, 2015 at 12:08 am

      Ha. Not yet. But I am being peer pressured like crazy to do so. If I do get it I will have no choice but to do a post on it. With me in it. Which is maybe why I haven’t pulled the trigger yet!

        Flash forward to July 2016, did you get the suit!?
        I found this blog in a google search on the shop, since I love love love her swimwear. It fits so well.
        Putting together another order right now since her swimwear is 30% off on Etsy right now – the cat suit is still there, waiting for you <3

        • Reply MarcyVeryMuch July 21, 2016 at 5:23 pm

          Oh Shana, I have not purchased it yet. Still thinking about it a year later though. Lol Glad to hear her suits fit so well. She’s got so many cute ones. Thanks for the heads up about the 30% off!! Hmmmm…
          xo, cynthia
