Bound and Pretty

I feel pretty wearing this collar. I love the pop of pink in contrast with white. While it’s not as comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, it serves the needs of a submissive. The collar is well-constructed, but I am a little disappointed with the quality and imperfections. I expected finer details from Aslan Leather.

My boyfriend and I discovered the fun of collars when I was giving him a blow job wearing a collar. He would pull on the O-ring toward him to force his penis deeper inside my mouth, and then pull the collar away from him. While I was out of breath and suffocated from time to time, I found it a very exhilarating experience. Being a masochist, I enjoy when he has control over my body. Collars add a new dimension to our exchange of power. After all, the neck is a very fragile and delicate part of the human body. Giving someone control of it can signify a great amount of trust and intimacy.

I recently purchased the Jaguar Cuffs made by Aslan Leather on sale. They were well-made and comfortable to wear, and I was impressed with the lifetime guarantee. I came upon the Pink Candy Jaguar Collar when browsing EdenFantasys for more products from Aslan Leather. The pop of color on my screen made it irresistible. I caved in and bought it. While my experience with the collar was overall positive, I have to admit I was expecting better. Nonetheless, it provided some quality time with its playful appearance and sturdy build. The Pink Candy Jaguar Cuffs, Pink Lady Jaguar Harness, and Pink Candy Minx Double Strap Harness are also available on EdenFantasys to match the collar.



Traditionally, in BDSM a collar is placed around a submissive partner’s neck to imply ownership. A leash can be attached to it by clipping it onto the O-ring on the front of the collar. They can also be used as everyday fashion accessories and role-play equipments. The Pink Candy Collar is flexible in fulfilling the user’s needs. It has qualities to last through rough play and the appeal for everyday wear. It can be great for both the beginner and advanced user depending on the customer’s needs.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

Design, material and craftsmanship:

The overall design of the collar is simple: a leather loop with an adjustable buckle. The base of the collar is its widest part. The base is made of two thick strips of leather stitched together; the pink layer faces outward and the white layer faces inward. The two layers are bound together by white stitching that runs along the perimeter of the base. Aslan left the edge of the white layer unfinished and unadorned while the edge of the pink layer looks rounded. Further examination of base’s ends shows the pink leather is only pink on the surface. The pink layer is made of a soft pink material on the surface with grayish material on the inside.



A thinner, much longer white fastening strap is pinned to the base by seven rivets. At first glance, it appears the strap uses the same white leather as the base. However, if you look at both pieces of leather from the side, the white leather on the base has a white grain while the strap has more of a gray grain. The edge of the strap is also a lot more frayed than the white leather on the base. One end of the strap curls over and secures the buckle. Instead of a straight pin, the buckle has a pin with a loop at its end. You can lock the collar in place with this loop. This mechanism prevents the sub from escaping the restraints.
The biggest rivet is situated on the buckle end. It pins through the strap, the base, and a tag that says “Aslan Leather Made in Canada”. The strap between the big rivet and a smaller rivet holds a D-ring. When you wear this collar, the strap would loop through the buckle then the D-ring. It is great for holding the excess leather. At the center of the collar, a triangular loop is mounted to the strap by another two rivets. An O-ring is connected to the triangular loop. Towards the pointy end of the leather strap, there are 6 punched rectangular holes in a line, which allow the collar to be adjustable. Depending on the size of the user’s neck, the pin of the buckle can go through any of the punched holes.






According to their site, Aslan used vegan “leather” for this collar. I am not an expert on leather, and I cannot tell exactly what process they went through and material they use to form this vegan “leather”. It is moderately soft to the touch. It has a very strong leather odor. I am not sure if the odor is from the material itself or Aslan applied some leather scented spray. The buckles, rings and rivets on the collar are made of metal. They feel very sturdy. The rivets are nickel plated, and should not be in contact with people with nickel allergy.

Unfortunately, this collar has several imperfections. The strap is cut too wide for the buckle. I can see that some of the leather on the strap is being shaved off by the looping it through the buckle a few times. On the base, the white leather is not cut with great accuracy. Some of its edges exceed the pink leather, and some don’t. While the strap and the base are stabled together firmly by the rivets, the strap doesn’t lay flat on the base. This creates an indentation on the pink leather when you try to wear the collar. The indentation would cave inside and make the collar smaller.

Size and fit:
Measurements for the collar:
Length of base: 15 ½”
Width of base: 1 ½”
Thickness of base: 3/16”
Length of white strap: 19 ½”
Width of white strap: ¾”
Length of fastening holes: 3/8”
Diameter of O-ring: 1 ½”
Length of buckle: 1”

From my measurements, the collar fits a neck 12 ½ to 17 inches in diameter. You will want to measure your neck before getting the collar. It might be a little too small or too big for some people. I find it a little tight using the second to the last latch, but too loose at the third to the last latch. My neck measures about 15 inches.

Performance

When the collar arrived, I tore through the box and tried it on. To my surprise, I got a defective collar. The line of holes on the fastening strap was off-centered, and the buckle was also tiled. I couldn’t loop the white leather strap far enough into the buckle to fasten it. I had to return the first one.

Eden was very prompt with sending out the new collar. About a week later, I got the second one in the mail. This time the holes are centered, but the buckle is still tilted. I think the problem arises from the pin in on the buckle not being centered. The right side of the pin holds more leather than the left side, thus causing the buckle to be tilted. This then made looping the fastening white leather through the buckle harder. However, I was able to fasten the second collar with a little force. I decided to not return this one because I didn’t want to cause more trouble to the Eden staff. I am not sure if this is a common defect with this line.

After a few sessions of using the collar, it lasted through some rough tugging and pulling. I can definitely say it’s durable. Because of its width, I have to keep my head up or it becomes uncomfortable and chafes a bit. This works like a double-edged sword: it’s great when you want your sub to keep certain postures with head up, but it’s also very uncomfortable if you are wearing it as an accessory and want to move your head around. I love the pink in contrast with white. It compliments my skin tone. However, when I try to put my head down, I look like I have five chins! :(
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Since the collar is made of vegan “leather”, I’d use the standard practices for cleaning and caring for leather products. Store it in a dry and cool place. Keep any moisture or humidity away from it. I normally store it in a zip-lock bag to form an air-tight seal. You can wipe away stains or dirt with a damp, soft cotton cloth; make sure to air dry immediately after exposure to moisture. To protect the rivets and metallic components of the collar, you could apply a thin layer of clear nail polish. This will help prevent moisture from contacting the metal (prevents rust) and therefore prolongs the lifespan of the product.

Packaging

The first collar I received came with no packaging. It had a tag that stated Aslan’s lifetime guarantee. The second collar had no packaging and no tag. There were no instructions. Eden did provide brown boxes both times to make the shipping discreet.

Personal comments

I am not vegan, but I have no qualms with people who choose vegan products. Please note that an item made of “vegan leather” doesn’t automatically imply that it’s eco-friendly or animal friendly. It only implies the item is made of synthetic fiber instead of actual leather from an animal. Unless the manufacturer discloses the exact formulation or process of how the particular vegan “leather” was made, there’s no way to know whether the creation of the vegan “leather” involves environmentally unfriendly processes and materials.
Follow-up commentary
My boyfriend and I both really like the look of the collar on me. It’s comfortable enough to wear, and I feel great about myself when wearing it. I think Aslan Leather uses a machine to cut their leather straps, and sometimes irregularities can occur during production. Don’t let it discourage you from trying this collar out though. You can always return or exchange the collar if yours isn’t functioning the way it should.
