Brief harness black and dark grey

Panty harness by RodeoH

Add resource

Actually, this WAS my first RodeoH...

The RodeoH is definitely worth adding to your stable and taking for a ride. It's not the only brief-style harness out there, but it's a very good one for average-sized toys. It's comfortable to wear, comfortable to wrap your legs around, much better than a steel ring and straps against your most sensitive areas, AND its boyish low-rise style looks very sexy, too!

Use

The RodeoH is near-miraculous for anyone who finds traditional strap-on harnesses to be somewhat less than comfortable, with their thick straps and hard buckles pressing into the skin of both wearer and wearer's playmate alike. Butches, femmes, bois, tomboys, andros...all will look and feel good wearing the RodeoH. It works best with dildoes of small to average size, and it could also be used for packing, if you're so inclined. Because it's so easy to put on and use, it would make an excellent first-time harness, but is also quite enjoyable for those who have more experience with strapping one on.

Material

The fabric is 95% cotton and 5% spandex, making the RodeoH soft, yet snugly form-fitting. It has a wide elastic waistband, which is thick and stretchy and aids in keeping RodeoH, and your weapon of choice, in place. It isn't waterproof, clearly, being mostly cotton, but water won't hurt it as it would a leather harness. However, I'd keep it away from chlorine if you want it to last a long time, because chlorine will cause a break-down of the elastic over time.

Design / Craftsmanship

They are styled like a good-quality pair of low-rise boys' briefs, which just happen to have a rubber O-ring sewn into the front. The solid black color with dark-gray trim is a handsome combination that complements all skin tones, and the style should complement most body types as well, whether on a boyish figure or a curvy one. The back offers good coverage, and although the leg openings are not elasticized, they are reinforced with the gray trim fabric and stitching, and the brief doesn't ride up easily.

As you can see in the product image, "rodeoH" is woven into the waistband, beginning in the center and ending on your left hip. There is just one double-stitched seam in this waistband, at center back--a good spot for a seam, as most of us have a slight dip there anyway. The waistband is also double-stitched to the fabric of the brief.

As for the main attraction, it is quite sturdily and thoughtfully designed. The O-ring, which seems to be a form of rubber as it's flexible and just slightly stretchy, is completely covered by cotton fabric. The front panel into which it's sewn is double-layered, and an additional reinforcing ring of gray fabric is sewn on the inner side of the ring. There are two rows of stitching around the outside of the ring, and one on the inner side. The ring itself measures exactly 1.5" in diameter, and will stretch slightly to hold maybe a 1 5/8" toy. It can also hold a smaller toy, as long as it has a reasonably-sized base.

Behind the O-ring panel is a second fabric panel, in gray; it is not attached to the waistband, but instead has an open, elasticized edge just above the level of the O-ring. It is attached to the brief by two diagonal seams covered with gray trim fabric on the outside, and has openings on both sides (one is visible from the outside, the other is hidden inside) which are about 2.5" long, at the ends of which it attaches to the leg openings and forms the equivalent of an undie lining panel. This inner panel with three openings not only makes it easy to insert and remove toys during wear, but also provides a soft fabric layer between the wearer's body and the base of the toy. It can even hold the "balls" of your toy, if it has them, or those of your packer.

Size / Fit

I bought the size 29, after reading a review which suggested sizing down for a more snug fit and better dildo control. My partner wears a size 30 in men's pants, and has a rockin' booty for her size. The 29 works for her, though it is a little tighter than we'd wish.

The waistband on ours measures 24.5" unstretched, and will comfortably stretch to about 33". On the company's website, the sizing is listed thus: 23-24, 25-26, 27-29, 30-32, 33-35, 36-38, 39-41, 46-49, 52-55. So, it looks like the EF product page is only listing the last number in the sizing range for each size; therefore, if your waist is over 26" and under 29", you should purchase the 29 here on EF. Unless, that is, you like it really tight.
    • Can be worn under clothing
    • Fits comfortably
    • Will fit most body sizes and types

Performance

The RodeoH does its job well, in that it's comfortable to wear, comfortable for the one you're wearing it for, very easy to put on and remove, and securely holds toys that fit its ring. Those who enjoy girthier toys may have trouble, though, because the O-ring is only slightly stretchy. I can say from experience that it will hold the Tantus Small Silk, the Sedeux Please, the Vixen VixSkin Spur, the Fetish Fantasy Elite G-Kiss, and the Vixen VixSkin Raquel just fine.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on
    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

The best way to care for the RodeoH and keep it bucking for a long time is to wash in cold water, either by hand or on the gentle cycle, and hang dry. Heat will break down elastic over time, so any clothing containing elastic/spandex/lycra should be cared for this way. It can be stored just like another pair of undies, or in your toy chest, if you prefer.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Included with my RodeoH were a small, soft drawstring bag for storage, and a cute dogtag necklace with the word "rodeoH" embossed on it. The bag is soft and silky, and could actually be used to tease your blindfolded partner: just slip your hand inside, pull the drawstring, and lightly caress her/his exposed skin. ... Or I suppose you could store your RodeoH in it, for travel or something.

I bought this over a year ago, so I don't precisely recall the outer packaging, but I believe it was a small box.
    • Good for storage

It's pretty damn sexy.

Experience

I love everything about the RodeoH, except for the one-size O-ring. My opinion is that, since there really isn't a way to make it interchangeable, the makers should offer each hip size in at least three O-ring sizes. Another option would be to make the O-ring out of a somewhat stretchier material--obviously not so stretchy that it won't hold a toy well, of course. I'm not a size queen, I'm usually the opposite of one. So, I want a smaller O-ring!

This one holds my toys in place with no problem, but when my partner is wearing it with a smaller toy, and is all the way up against my body, I can feel the O-ring in a slightly uncomfortable way, because of the gap between it and the lower portion of the toy's shaft. Therefore, a smaller O-ring would eliminate that pesky gap and feel much more comfortable during deep thrusting. (Now, many of you probably won't have this issue; I am particularly sensitive, and can barely handle a standard two-strap harness because I can feel the straps holding the O-ring so much!)

There's one more small drawback. Because it's made of cotton, it is absorbent. This means that with deep thrusting will come an absorption of lubricating fluids. So, okay, a smaller O-ring and a non-absorbent panel around that O-ring, that's what I want!
Follow-up commentary
The RodeoH is holding up quite well! I'd say we've used it around 20 times now, maybe more (sometimes my partner just wears boys' briefs, with the toy held by the convenience opening). I always machine-wash the RodeoH in cold water on a gentle cycle, then hang it up to air-dry, and I haven't noticed any frayed seams, worn fabric, or loosened elastic. Since I prefer average- to below-average toys, all of the ones I own fit into the ring just fine. Even the Raquel fits, though it was a bit of a squeeze to get her tip through! This was an excellent investment, and I'm interested in adding the boxer-brief style to my collection next.

    Thanks for an outstanding review! I like that you include all the details as well as some very helpful experience and insights. We have (and LOVE) the Joque, which is nylon and spandex. My wife likes the comfort and it's easy care. We considered a brief, but she likes the additional possibilities which come from leaving certain parts uncovered.
