Collar Me Happy

This collar wasn't fabulous, but it certainly wasn't disappointing. I loved using it, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a first collar. If you have the money to invest, however, consider looking at a nicer product, especially if you're particular about how things look.

I got this collar because I loved the matching cuffs so much. And though they are made by the same company and are similar, they aren't exactly the same.

Unlike the picture, the collar is lined with black fur, making them much, much more comfortable than they look. The red part of the collar is made of leather, and the collar is actually a much deeper red than the website picture. The design of the collar is one of my favorite features; it’s traditional and simple. Aside from the fact that the paint chips rather easily, the collar (like the cuffs) looks much more expensive than it is. But this is where the similarities with the cuffs end.

Unfortunately, the one truly negative feature that I have with the collar is the fur. While it is lovely and makes the collar not only look better, but feel better, the fur sticks to the skin with the littlest of sweat. When I first opened the package to try on the collar, the fur stuck to my skin right away. I only wore the collar for less than ten minutes and I wasn’t doing anything to get my heart racing. When I used the collar with my partner, even more fur stuck. I’m hoping that after time and more usage, that the fur will stop shedding, because that’s the largest issue I have with this toy. A smaller issue I have is the paint. Though I didn’t mind it very much, it was a little disappointing to see the paint chipping. As the picture shows, the rings are black. After the black paint chips, the metal underneath is exposed.

I’ve used the collar several times in the few weeks that I’ve had it, and it’s given me the impression that the leather is of good quality and will last for quite a while, to my surprise. The fit is absolutely wonderful. I love how comfortable the collar is, and even though this is my first one, I’m not sure that they could get much more comfortable. I liked the softness of the fur as well as the adjustability of the collar itself.

Other than the paint and the fur issues, this product has worked perfectly for me. I loved using this collar with the matching cuffs and some rope. Aesthetically, I couldn’t have asked for anything better at this price. I love how luxurious this collar looks with the fur and how comfortable it feels. My boyfriend wasn’t interested in using it himself, but couldn’t have been happier to use it on me. He loved the durability, how it looked, and how easily he could tie me up.

While this collar (and set) is perfect for me, it may not be perfect for everyone. I love how this cheaper collar mimics the luxurious feel of more expensive collars, because I’m a college student that can’t afford (and doesn’t really want to invest in) a really, really nice collar right now. Because of this, I’m willing to overlook what I see as minor flaws. If you are looking for the perfect collar and don’t have a budget, I might consider looking at something that doesn’t chip or leave behind fur. But if you’re limited on funds or are a BDSM beginner, I think you’ll love this collar just as much as I do.
Follow-up commentary
While I loved this collar from the beginning and thought it was perfect for me despite its flaws, it's even better now. When I first reviewed this collar, I was disappointed in the fact that the fur stuck to my neck when I wore it. Now that I've used it more, I've found that I no longer have this issue.

I wear this collar at least two times a week and it's been absolutely wonderful. The paint has chipped off of the metal parts a little bit, but other than that, this collar is of great quality for the price. I hope to use this for years to come.
