Restrains Circulation!

I like the idea that, without rope or tape, I can bind My Mr.'s hands together and have him stay where I put him. I think that these could be better marketed with either a looser elastic or by having them sized, even if it's just "Small" and "Large."

extremely useful review
Sportsheets is a manufacturer known for making sexual positioning products for the shower, and also for bondage and fetish gear. They are known for their quality of products. They have some new products out, and one of them is a new wrist restraint that is designed to be a little more comfortable than cuffs or nylon restraints.

The Elastabind Wrist Restraints arrived in Eden Fantasys' traditional non-descript box. Inside was a plastic clam-shell package that included my new restraints. The picture on the packaging is a couple, in their underwear, with the man being bound. It was tasteful, though not very discreet.

The elastic used for these restraints is very thick, and tightly woven. There's not a lot of give to them, which is not what I think of, personally, when I think "elastic." It appears that it is one solid strip of elastic that is sewn in the middle to secure them and create two loops. There is a nylon strap that goes around the restraints that can be adjusted to your desired tightness with a plastic strap adjuster, which is also sewn into the center of the loops. The elastic is very snug and the construction of the restraints is actually not very good. I have seen more secure sewing jobs. Just trying to get these on and off a few times has caused fraying already; not to mention the nylon strap is fraying as well. (They've been worn/tried on a total of about four times. For me that includes the first time I tried them and also the one or two times I tried them on during my video review. For My Mr. just the once.)

A great benefit to these restraints is that they are compatible with Sportsheets' Under-the-Bed restraint system. All you need to do is remove the clip from one of the cuffs (or buy your own) and attach it to the D-ring on the restraints, then clip it to your desired location on the bed, and you not only will be restrained at the wrist, but will be unable to move from your bed.

To give you an idea on the fit, I wear a "large" in womens' gloves. I had difficulty wriggling my wrists through the elastic, so it is very snug. My husband wears a "small/medium" in mens' gloves and he also had difficulty getting his hands in. The strap was only used so that he couldn't wriggle out of the restraints, not to make them tighter, though if you have tiny, thin hands and wrists, you may need to do use the strap for that result. *for a full demonstration, please refer to the video*

Since they are small and lie flat, you could easily pack these in a suitcase or even folded into a purse. Probably cannot stuff them in your pocket without a bulge though.
Experience
When these arrived in my assignment cart, I was thrilled and instantly turned on. I really love bondage role play with My Mr. and I was excited to try this out as my first real piece of bondage equipment to use on him.

I tried these on myself because I was curious if they were comfortable and I really wanted to know what was in store for My Mr. I was pretty discouraged when I discovered how tight they are. I hoped they would fit My Mr. better, but alas, it was no luck.

The tightness of these restraints is a little much for My Mr. We tried them without attaching them to anything because, although I had ordered it, the Under-the-Bed system had not arrived yet and I was eager to try it out. So My Mr. pretended to be tied to one spot. The tightness was so much that after about 10 minutes of play, he was asking me to take them off. His hands had fallen asleep. He won't even let me put them back on him to test them with the bed system we got so I could tell you how they'd work; but in my best estimation, if these work for you, I'm sure you'll enjoy securing them to your own system.
Follow-up commentary
These are in the garbage. There's not really much else to say. I kept them until I finished my video and tossed them. They were far too tight for either one of us, and they were unraveling, so there was really little reason to keep them around.

It really is a shame because I think it's a good concept, if only they hadn't been so tight they cut off circulation.

    Hang tight on the video y'all... my computer's really screwed up tonight
  • Redboxbaby
    I am sorry these did not work for you either. I had a similar product and had the same issue with the wrist restraints although I wish ours had a D-ring or something like that -- that would have been more fun! Great Review!
  • BBW Talks Toys
    YAY! Video.

    @Redbox... I saw... overall, just not a happy trial. Oh well. Maybe next product!
  • Kayla
    That sucks. I'm sorry it didn't work for you. They look neat though.
  • BBW Talks Toys
    Right? I was titillated... until I was tingly from lack of circulation

    How do the wrist restraints fasten? What are the smallest and largest settings for them? I was also confused about "the strap" what it was, and how it connected to the restraints. Does each wrist get it own restraint? Or are they somehow connected? Does it come with spring loaded clips? Does the "strap" connect with the clip? Can one use it without the Under the Bed Restraint system?

    I can't picture these nor how they work.

    Thanks for the review. Sorry they didn't work out
  • BBW Talks Toys
    @P'Gell... sorry you're confused. Did you watch the video? Because it completely demonstrates how the restraints go on, fasten, and how they are tied. I also mention in the text that there are two loops with a strap that fastens around.

    And it may be defensiveness over my review that I worked really hard on, or it could be just my perfectionist personality, but I went back and reread my review (with the intent to edit if I saw that info was truly missing), but the info that you're asking for is in the review. I mention that it's one piece of elastic that is sewn in the center to make two loops. Later I mention trying to wriggle my hands into the loops. Then that pulling the strap only makes it that you cannot wriggle out of the elastic loops. I also say that you can attach it to any location (I reference attaching it to your UTB system) by the D-ring that is on the restraints.

    I misunderstood. BBW. I PMed you. Sorry for the confusion.
