Purple Passion!

In all honesty, this is probably my most comfortable sleep mask that I have owned. Others in past were too thin, itchy, or the material was too firm. This was a great find and I am hoping to add all of the other color combinations offered.

Use

The Silk Whisper blindfold by Leatherbeaten is a luxury that most don't know about. Take the plunge and buy it, you don't know what you are missing out on.

This is one blindfold that not only works for sensory deprivation play but it works as a sleep mask!

It arrived in a basic plastic packaging. Almost something like a ziploc but this is all that was needed because the blindfold is so lightweight and there isn't much to it.

This is best used two ways and the first way is great for people who like a soft, luxurious feel on their face, this is also best for people who do not like the strong smell of leathers and other textures with a scent on their face or skin. We first tried this out in the bedroom with some erotic play. I placed the blindfold over my eyes while he kissed my neck and then quickly moved to my lips. It was nice to have a mysterious feeling as I couldn't see where he was moving next. I really liked the blindfold for that. It blocked out most of the light but a few glimmers came in with some movement of my head. It wasn't tight on my nose and it didn't cause any breathing problems and no facial obstructions.





The second time that it was used, I used it to sleep in. All I can say is that now this blindfold has been transformed into a sleep mask because it is just so darn comfortable!

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

When I first tried it on, it was tight on my head, it took a few wears on my head and not on my eyes to get it loose enough for me to wear comfortably. With the elastic being tight, it left a few marks along the side of my temple and seemed tight on my eyes. Once it adjusted to fit my head better, I no longer had these problems. They seem to make them tighter because the companies know in the long run that the elastic can sometimes stretch out a great deal.

My head is 21" around. After wearing it a few times, it loosened up to a perfect fit for me and I feel more comfortable wearing it to bed. If your head measures 19" or below, it may be loose on your or even fall off while being worn.

The design on the front is simply gorgeous. Nothing extravagant but a pretty pattern that your significant other will enjoy looking at while playing. It has a purple dragon and flower pattern on the front, that gives a unique oriental/asian feel. I had my bathroom decorated for a little while with a similar pattern and I always received compliments on it. I'm thinking that is what ultimately had me drawn to this blindfold.




The front of the blindfold is silk and is very delicate and soft. The underside that is against the face is a fleece material. The band that stretches around the head is of course elastic. As you can see in my photo below, the fleece is prone to collecting hair, lint, and other small particles.





The eye cover fully measures at almost 8" across and each eye cover is a bit over 3" in height. The elastic used is the 1/2" elastic.The elastic measures at almost 13 inches without being stretched and around 33 inches stretched out close to maximum length. I did not try to stretch any further because I didn't want to stretch it too much. I'm sure that it could have went a few more inches.

The elastic is sewn to the fleece and it is sewn under a soft, cottony feel material that runs along the outer portion of the full mask. The trim is 3/8".




There was no smell present upon opening the package and when I tried to find a hint of a smell, there was none. I can't stand any odd smells while sleeping and this mask had none.

Performance

This is a beautiful blindfold and I am glad that I bought it to use for play. I can now have the best of both worlds because it doubles as a sleep mask for me. It's more discreet than other blindfolds that I have used in the past. It holds up well and it has never been itchy on my face. I can sleep all night in this or I can use it for play for longer periods of time. I am so used to this blindfold (sleep mask) that I can't sleep without it. I really wasn't expecting to fall in love with a sleep mask but it has happened. My sister saw it on my dresser and asked me if she could have it and I quickly said, NO. Once the elastic stretches out in this one, I will be purchasing another. It is just that awesome.


Care and Maintenance

The silk cover is very delicate. As you know with all silk, you must take great care of anything that has this fabric on it. I washed this in cold and did not exert pressure on the material. I have a drying screen that is made for some delicate materials and it allows air to flow through it from all areas. This worked well for the blindfold.

You will want to wash it often if you wear it to bed or use it for longer periods of sensory deprivation because the fleece can collect oils from the skin and cause small breakouts on the face such as the forehead, nose and temple area. I usually keep it stored in a ziploc bag, similar to the one that it arrived in and I keep it in my top lingerie drawer when not in use. At times when I'm in a rush, it gets put on my dresser by my mate. My guy even brings it to me at night to put on. Isn't he so sweet? He even knows that I love it.

Packaging

The packaging was a basic clear bag that had a zip top almost exactly the same as one of the ziploc bags. There was a card included that stated the company name which is called Leatherbeaten. The card reads: The whisper real silk blindfold.

Personal comments

A little adjustment to make this blindfold even more spectacular would be to make an adjustable elastic band on it. It could accommodate many head sizes and extend the life of the blindfold. It would also make it more comfortable when first wearing it as I had to get the elastic stretched a bit before it was very pleasurable to wear.

Don't twist or tug on the fabric as it can leave the silk wrinkled and pulled out of shape and can possibly rip or tear it and we wouldn't want that, now would we? With such a delicate piece, I do take the extra precautions.

Experience

I love this product and I'm thinking about buying the other color combinations that are carried, such as: purple/silver, purple/black, and red/black. I like all of those colors and they will work well with many pieces of my lingerie. In reality, I just want more of the blindfolds for the comfort.

Yes, the style is nice but I want to have some of these around for a very long time to wear. I must have a dark room to sleep in and if I can't get it, I need to use a mask. This blindfold surely fits the bill. I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
Follow-up commentary
This is one of the best blindfolds that I own and I have many, not just from Eden but from lots of places. I have thrown some away because this one has taken top spot now.

    Thanks for the detailed review & the pix! I am so happy you gave all those measurements! I can't sleep without a sleep mask & was going to get this, but my head is too big & I need to re-think this, maybe I'll get it on sale.
