Fun on a budget!

These wrist cuffs are a wonderful option for cuff beginners or those who are curious about restraint. They are extremely affordable and a great option for the price range!

Use

These cuffs are even more beautiful in person than online. I like them well enough but I do have a few issues with them. In my opinion one should know just by looking at these cuffs on the website that they are not intended for serious bondage or suspension play. Depending on position they can be very easy to escape! They are also a tad bulky, especially for smaller wrists. I think they are extremely pretty when worn with fetish wear while at a play party or even a sexy “vanilla” costume. In other words I have found them best for looks only. I have received many compliments while wearing these cuffs.

With all of that being said I feel like these cuffs would be great for beginners. Honestly, how many of us in the beginning knew we liked being restrained? Not many do right off the bat and for beginners cuffs can be intimidating especially if you have never tried anything like them before. Cuffs like these are perfect to test the waters. They are soft and won't leave any marks or bruises. The Velcro closures make it really easy to get out of these cuffs if you should find you don't enjoy them.

I personally find a set like this much better when introducing restraint than the standard cheap pair of handcuffs from a novelty shop. The best thing about this set is the affordability and wide variety of size options. When I first bought these I was heavier so I needed larger cuffs than average but since then I have lost weight and have had to tighten them up. This is where the bulkiness comes in. For smaller wrists this set will likely be too bulky but for larger wrists they are perfect!

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

As previously mentioned these cuffs are beautiful. For the price I feel like the craftsmanship is perfect. Usually when you buy cuffs priced in this range they are very cheaply made. I have even had some fall apart before. As long as you are not participating in heavy restraint and bondage while wearing these you shouldn't have any issues with them breaking. While these cuffs may look delicate, I think they will hold up over time if given proper care. I have had my pair for about six months and haven’t had any issues with durability thus far. I don't see them lasting for years and years but with the price being so low it's not really that big of an issue.

The main materials involved are polyester and metal with Velcro closures. They hook together in a key-chain like manner that I personally do not find that pleasing but I enjoy a tighter fit that I can't escape easily. And when the polyester materials come together it can seem scratchy if touched against the grain. I do find that if lube is near them then it can leave stains and can be quite difficult to remove. So keep the lube far away!

These cuffs are extremely plushy which for some could be perfect and for others it can be annoying. While I do like this pair and find them aesthetically pleasing I do not like the bulkiness as I prefer cuffs made of leather. That is all preference though as the material feels like another world compared to leather or steel. They will not bruise or leave any marks and for the most part are comfortable to wear. Honestly with the more weight I lose I think I’ll be able to wear these as ankle cuffs! I believe these will fit just about anyone.

Performance

When I bought the wrist cuffs I also bought the ankle cuffs. Once I received my shipment I couldn't even wait for my husband to come home from work before trying them on. Right away I felt how plushy they were and it was obvious that they would not leave a mark on me. At the time that was important for me. The cuffs themselves were very comfortable but even at a heavier weight they still felt bulky on me. I didn't measure my wrists to the cuff size when I bought these. I would not suggest doing that for anything you are buying. Always measure and you will be much happier with your purchases! Honestly while I like these cuffs had I measured my wrists I probably wouldn't have bought this set. So while I once feared these would be too small in reality I had a lot of room to play with. The extra Velcro strip that was left over was far too scratchy to leave on so I had to trim it up.

My husband and I have never used these in heavier play and the more advanced we get the less this set gets used. I have since moved on to leather and steel but I have always felt that it is extremely important to be comfortable during any kind of play. I don’t see how this set could make anyone feel otherwise and I find it perfect for those just starting out.

Care and Maintenance

As long as something serious doesn't happen to the cuffs then they can be fairly easy to clean depending on substance. I find that lubes in general tend to stain the cuffs if left on for too long due to the material. If you get to it quickly enough no stains will be left but who really wants to stop in the middle of a moment to clean your cuffs? I really don't find stains on satin cuffs to be attractive. I've always just wiped my pair down with a damp washcloth and sometimes a small amount of hand soap. I have marked them as high maintenance just because I am the type of person who really doesn't want to have to worry about keeping my hands away from lube or similar materials. I want to concentrate on my partner and sensations.

Follow-up commentary
Since I've had this for so long I decided to do the follow-up review early. While I don't use this set that often, I still think they're lovely. I would still recommend them to anyone who is looking to try out restraints.

    Thanks for a well-written review! I think you're right on about these being more for show than play. And for that, I think they look really good.
