A Femme Gem

In the world of harnesses, the Sasha harness is a durable product that provides a little sass with comfort that will take you far in the bedroom. Its size runs a little small, but the material is stretchy and comfortable for prolonged wear, as well as waterproof and vegan friendly. Spareparts delivered a cloth harness that provides all the functionality of other heavy duty harnesses without the need of o-rings, snaps, and clasps.

Use

The Sasha harness is a harness that differs from others due to its level of comfort and fit. It's a boy short style harness that allows the wearer to be free from leather straps or anything that may dig into the skin over time with use. This product is great for just about anyone that loves the style. Simply pop in your favorite dildo or plug, and you're ready to peg, play, or fuck to your heart's content!

Material

The material is a blend of Nylon and Spandex, the Nylon being 77% of the material, and Spandex making up 23%. The Spandex in the blend gives it a little bit of a stretch, but it doesn't have as much give as I expected it to. Overall, the fabric feels just like a high quality bathing suit and is completely waterproof. This makes this harness pretty unique, as most other higher end harnesses sold are leather and don't offer a waterproof feature. The material is really smooth to the touch and is vegan friendly, as no leather is used in any part of the harness. Inside is a pouch that is made out of a mesh material that is meant to hold a bullet vibe and to keep the dildo base from rubbing against your skin during use. It's moveable, however, so if you prefer to keep the base of the dildo against your skin, you can also choose to do that.

Design / Craftsmanship

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I have to include that this is a fantastic harness for a femme beginner looking for something that doesn't look like a typical strap on. It's very atypical from what you'd expect in a harness, and it offers a unique take on strap on play. I personally enjoy that this product isn't simply about aesthetics, but the functionality of every aspect of the harness all together.

You don't need any spare O-rings to use with it, as the stretchy O-shaped portion that is built in stretches to accommodate nearly any sized dildo. I've included a few photos of a dildo of mine that has a larger base, and it fit in with pretty much no hassle. I jumped around with the heavy dildo in, and it didn't even begin to pop out or slide out. This harness holds up well with weightier toys and what goes in stays put during use.




There are slots to attach garters that are included with the harness in a separate plastic bag. The garters are well made and I feel the harness looks great with them on paired with a pair of stockings. They're of course, an option, which only adds to my love of the options this harness gives. On the sides are two silky ribbons that control the length of the leg portion of the harness. When you've decided how tight/high you want it to be, you tie the ribbons into a bow. If you decide to tie the ribbons a little tighter, the harness gives that same rouching effect that is on the backside of it. There's a little room for give on every part of the harness. There's elastic around the leg openings and in the backside, allowing for a little wiggle room.

I love that this harness is so discreet and is travel friendly for that reason. Not only is it not bulky and easy to fold up and store or pack, but it looks like a regular pair of underwear and wouldn't raise any eyebrows if a roommate or friend saw it lying around. The o-shape in the front may take away from this, but overall, they do look like your typical pair of boy shorts for the most part.

The mesh coverings at the front of the harness travel down to the area between the leg openings and acts as a bit of a panty liner. It isn't cotton or the most comfortable thing to rub against your cooch, but I haven't experienced any chafing when wearing it and it's comfortable enough that I don't notice it much.

Size / Fit

My Measurements:
Hips: 42"
Waist: 38"
Legs: 23" (around)
Weight: 178lbs
Height: 5'0"

I ordered a size 2X and if I were ten pounds heavier, this probably wouldn't fit me very well. The 2X on my frame is a very snug fit, but remains comfortable and moveable for me. My favorite part about the way this fits is the band around the waist. It almost acts like a shapewear piece in the fact that it hugs my tummy in and makes me a look a lot slimmer. It hides my love handles when pulled up and my tummy pooch, so I love wearing this even more for that reason.

I would say, however, that this runs a little small and I was expecting the 2X to be far too big on me. The sizes run from an XS all the way to a 3X, and noting that the 2X almost didn't fit, I'd say that the 3X might not be as big as I'd expect. I probably could've gotten away with ordering an XL, but I would expect it to be restricting and tight on me. If you fit the size chart perfectly and want a snugger fit, you should probably order what size you fit on the chart. However, if you want a little room in the harness, I'd order a size up. There's one factor that makes the harness adjustable, which is the ties on the side. However, Spareparts could have made the waist band adjustable via a satin ribbon that tied in the front of the harness, but the band tends to make the harness a lot more durable and offers a bit of shaping.

Performance

I usually like for the harnesses I wear to have the O-ring sitting higher up, but my partner says that a lower O-ring is great because when I'm riding her, she can feel the dildo against her clit. This O-ring kind of sits close to between my legs when I have the harness on, which makes what dildo I'm wearing hang really low, as well. I'm not entirely sure if I absolutely hate that or not, as most other harnesses have an adjustable O-ring that can fix that really quickly.

During prolonged wear, I didn't experience any chafing or discomfort. The material feels really smooth against my skin and the waist band was designed not to dig into your skin, even if the harness is tight fitting. The material isn't as breathable as cotton, but it doesn't completely restrict your nono's of air, nor make you so sweaty you want to fling it off within half an hour.

Care and Maintenance

Spareparts gives the option to either hand wash or machine wash your harness, which is awesome. Something of this nature that is machine washable really seems like a miracle. The suggested washing settings are "Warm, Gentle, Mild Soap, No bleach." It is also included that you shouldn't use any fabric softener and not to iron it. You can find this information under the mesh pocket in the front of the harness.

I'd suggest washing this with your colors in the wash, just in case the dye bleeds. If you're concerned about the material getting hooked or snagged when machine washing or drying, you can toss it into a pillow case or special lingerie bag to prevent anything from damaging it. When in use, the information underneath the mesh flap recommends to use with silicone and water based lubes only, as oil can be hard to get out of fabrics and you can't use any harsh soaps on the product.

Between uses you can just store it in the pouch it came with, or in the original box just for safekeeping.

Packaging

The packaging for this product made me feel like I was receiving a gift. It arrived in a black box with tissue paper covering the harness inside. I loved that the packaging was presented in this way and that it's great for storing the harness in between uses. There's a paper band around the box that you have to remove in order to access the lid. On the band is the name of the harness, and on the back, facts about what makes this harness pretty great. Inside the box, the harness includes two storage bags. One is black mesh with a draw string, and the other is a zipper pouch that is made of the same material and looks similar to the harness itself. Both can be used to store the harness, however, I use the mesh pouch to store lubes in my drawer. I believe it was intended to store a dildo or plug in that you use with the harness regularly. The box is fantastic for storage or gifting to a friend. You can either store your harness in the original box, or in one of the pouches included. It's great that a variety of storage options are included and all of them are discreet and don't take up a lot of space.

Personal comments

I think the way this looks on me is really, really flattering and my partner thinks the femme flair to it is sexy, as well as the color. I think Spareparts got really creative with this harness and created something femme that isn't just about the looks, but about how it functions. They made a harness that delivers all the functionality of leather harnesses with straps and snaps, all while being waterproof and vegan friendly. An applause goes out to Spareparts for this, even if it isn't perfect. It can lose its sex appeal if it doesn't fit properly, or if your partner or yourself aren't into a high waisted look in underwear. With the garters attached, they have even more of that femme appeal and I quite like them paired with a nice bra and some stockings. You really get the most use out of its style when its paired with other things, as that's something that's a little hard to do with other harnesses. We purchased my partner the Tomboi harness, which comes in a similar color scheme as the Sasha and is also made by Spareparts.



Follow-up commentary
Who doesn't love the prospect of fucking in water? Finally, a harness that allows me to take it wherever I please. I still love the fit of my Sasha, and the way it makes me feel when wearing it makes up for the price. I love all the elements that give this harness such a feminine flair and make it so fun to use.

    It's not a "strap on" harness if it's a slip on and the issue with ones such as this cute pair (great pictures, by the way!) is that sometimes they don't hold up so well with bigger cocks, as is shown in the pictures. But they are very cute! And yay vegan! There are also vinyl and rope harnesses

    Dear HanahPanda,

    Thank you for taking the time to review the SpareParts™ SASHA™ harness. It is a harness we took a great deal of research, time and love to make and we are very proud of it.

    I wanted to touch on a few points you made about sizing and care of the product.

    With regard to sizing, please keep in mind that the sizing chart is meant as a guide, body type must be considered as well as it is just as important as the hip measurement (please refer to sizing information below). Based upon your description, we would have recommended sizing up based on our "body shape / Moon phase analogy" chart. We’re sorry that this chart was not available on the Eden Fantasys website at the time you made your purchase.

    We are very invested in making sure things fit properly. The harness should be secure but not snug because it is meant to hold a dildo close to your body. We don't want everyone to size up, because if they have a different frame this might not apply, and they would have a product that is too large for them and doesn't function properly. Again, please take a look at the sizing instructions below.

    The mesh bag that is included is actually a laundry bag that can be used in a washing machine. We have included this as part of the product to make it convenient for our customers to wash the harness on the gentle cycle in the washing machine if they so choose. There is no need to use a pillowcase or to purchase a special lingerie bag.

    Thank you, again, for reviewing our harness and please contact directly us with any questions you may have about the product. You can contact us via this link on our site.

    Best,
    Nikki Lee

    HOW TO SELECT THE CORRECT SIZE:
    You need to consider both lower waist/hip measurement and actual body shape. Proper measurement is absolutely crucial with our underwear harnesses, since the right fit depends on how your body fills out the harness.

    STEP: A
    1. Lower waist/hip measurement.
    a. Wrap a measuring tape around lower waist, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) below the pelvic/hip bone. If you are wearing a belt or baggy pants, shimmy pants down a little, so you get a true reading.
    b. Take down the number where the tape measure crosses over itself.
    c. Check the size info below and note the corresponding size.

    SIZE CHART: (IN INCHES)

    XS = 26-28 XL = 41-44
    S = 29-32 2X = 45-48
    M = 33-37 3X = 49-52
    L = 38-40 XXS, 4X & 5X COMING SOON

    STEP: B
    2. VERY IMPORTANT: Determine body shape -using moon phase analogy. Looking at your body form and thinking of the moon shapes, determine what type of body form/shape (mainly your, buttocks and stomach regions) you have. This is very important: the products won’t fit properly if your body doesn’t fill out the harness (from front to rear). Also if this step isn’t considered you might get a product that is too tight or snug, as going by the guide below it might have instructed that you go up, or down a size due to body form/shape.

    · Full Moon: +1 size -Go a size up from the size chart.
    If you were to view this body shape from the side, you would see a half-moon shape in rear, and a quarter to half-moon shape in front, where the stomach is.

    · Three-Quarter Moon: +1 size -Go a size up from the size chart.
    · If you were to view this body shape from the side, you would see a quarter-moon shape in front and a half-moon shape in rear, or just the opposite quarter moon shape in rear, and half moon shape in front (stomach area).

    · Half-Moon: Stick to the size chart.
    If you were to view this body shape from the side, you would see a half-moon shape in rear, and a flat front stomach area.

    · Quarter/Crescent Moon: -1 size - Go a size down OR stick to the size chart.
    This body shape has gentler less pronounced curve in rear. If you were to view it from the side, you would see a quarter (or crescent) shape sloping from the tailbone to the top of the thigh. This body shape should choose the next size down UNLESS there is also a quarter to full-moon curve in front, at the stomach. In that case, stay to the size chart.

    @nmirage - My partner says "slip-on" makes her think of shoes and giggles. Strap on is kind of a universal term that means something to put a dick in, so I calls it like I sees it

    @lalapetitee - I say order a size up regardless, but as nikki lee has so lengthily put it, it's way more complicated than that. If you're close to my height and weight, order a size up. If you're not and want a tighter fit, just order a size down. It's all up to the way you want the harness to fit your specific body type and remember, Eden has free returns/exchanges so even if you do happen to order an iffy size, you can change your mind and exchange it free of cost
