Dogs in corsets? Oh, hell no!

November 16, 2010
I'm a hot bitch.

I'm a hot bitch.

I consider myself one hot bitch. My fur glistens in the sun, my body is lean and muscular, and my personality — well let’s just say that all the male dogs at the park want me (sometimes a little too much). Yup, I’m pretty much a rock star. And while with my physique I could totally pull off a dog corset, I wouldn’t be caught dead in one. It’s just so wrong on so many levels. I mean, it’s worse than dogs wearing shoes — it’s like dogs wearing bras.

And Etsy — the website selling silk pup corsets — takes this ridiculous idea a step further. They’re selling human corsets that match the dog version. So you and your dog can strut down the street wearing matching undergarments.

Dog.

Dog.

Human.

Human.

Sexy? I think not.

Which is another thing I don’t get. Corsets were originally designed to mold and shape the torso either for aesthetic or medical purposes — not as outwear. And while you human bitches do and wear some bizarre things, I think you’re crossing the line by trying to bring your undergarments-as-clothing to us dogs. It’s not like dogs have the breasts to even support this look.

So I say — let’s just stick with the hot pink collars and bedazzled name tags, shall we?

    I tend not to put Toby in any type of dog clothing for a number of reasons – mostly because he can figure out how to take it off in seconds.

    I wouldn’t put them on our dogs and Pandora (the Grumpy Old Lady cat) would shred them.

    But I’ve seen some cute holiday photos of pets who didn’t seem too upset in costumes. And the winter coats are good for some breeds …

    I guess I’ll leave it between pet and pet-parent. ;-D

      Agreed. Some breeds definitely need to wear jackets.

      And sometimes — for the sake of holiday cuteness — costumes are awesome!

      We just shudder when we think about how far some people might take this corset idea …
