Crappy Strap

My advice is to save up your money and buy a better quality harness instead of wasting your cash on this disappointment. There are much better entry level options for those desiring to foray into strap-on play. Removing the front leather panel allows this harness to be worn in the shower but you'll want to use a different dildo other than the one included, will probably experience some chafing, and the wearer won't get much stimulation.

Pros:
Fairly easy adjustment, fits fuller figures, holds dildo firmly.
Cons:
Cheaply made, terrible included jelly dildo, o-ring not interchangeable, chafes skin.

Use

The Fetish Fantasy Plus Size by PipeDream is an entry level jock-style harness designed for the plus size women in the crowd who have a desire to peg their partners while also sticking within their budget. It's a complete kit consisting of both the harness as well as a smallish size jelly dildo built for beginners and the makers thought it would be a good idea to also throw in a cheap bonus nylon blindfold. Obviously the blindfold is for the timid partner not to know what's sneaking up on them! The straps are reasonably simple to adjust and the length of them allows for a fit on fuller bodied ladies while the shiny pink heart-shaped front harness panel is meant to appeal to those seeking a softer cute feel.

Material

The manufacturer states that the front harness panel is made from genuine leather but it's of the thinnest, cheapest grade and there's absolutely no doubt that it will tear in the short term. The straps themselves are of very durable nylon construction to the point of being a little too inflexible and I found that they chafed my poor delicate skin both around my thighs and hips. Plastic friction type buckles allow for adjustment of the straps but I found that because of the nylon thickness they didn't allow movement very easily and some wiggling/forcing was required to slide the straps through the buckles.
As for the included dildo it's made of my ultimately detested toy material - jelly. I really can't say how much I dislike jelly toys and this one is a great example of why. It stinks to high heaven of an abhorrent chemical, is sticky to the touch and flops around like your grandmothers underarm fat. The maker certainly cut costs with this dong and shouldn't have bothered to include it in the kit at all.
Because the harness panel is leather this kit can't be considered waterproof but it can be removed allowing some versatility to shower fucking.

Design / Craftsmanship

While it must be remembered that the Fetish Fantasy Plus Size harness is targeted for those on a budget I think that PipeDream could have done a better job at crafting a more quality kit. The robust nylons straps are firm but abrasive to the skin and, as I've already mentioned, a little stiff when adjusting through the friction buckles. I'm really not a fan of the leather front panel because it's so thin and also that it's treated in shiny pink. Personally I think a harness should be more bondage looking (ie. bad-ass black) but that's usually the feel my husband and I find arousing. The straps come from around the hips and thighs passing through slots in the front panel which allows the heart shape to slide around and I found it floppy, uncomfortable and irritating. My advice is to rip off the panel and you now have a minimalistic harness that compares more to the Bare As You Dare or Commando harnesses just in a completely non-leather material. Voila, you can now use the harness in the shower!
The straps are all joined permanently by black rivets onto a rubber o-ring for dildos with a base to be inserted into. This doesn't allow for changing of the o-ring to bigger sizes to accommodate larger dongs if that's your desire which dampens potential functionality. This harness won't grow with your increased capabilities if you practice enough to yield/accept more cock.
The dildo is smooth without any visible seam lines and non-representational. If your partner doesn't want a realistic cock penetrating their orifices it's a good thing but again, it's made from icky jelly and is the ultimate cheap fake dick compound.
About the only good design feature is the fact that the longer straps give fuller-figured women a chance at wearing a harness that will fit them so they can experience the delicious art of pegging.

Size / Fit

I'm a 5' 11" tall woman with 38" hips and I'd consider myself more of an Amazonian than a plus size gal but I had tons of extra strap left over after donning and adjusting this harness. The product states it will fit up to 48" waists which covers most of the population with people having leftover strap length able to easily trim off the excess with scissors to prevent them from flopping around during thrusting. While the friction style buckles don't slide too easily they do lock in well and I did get a firm fit that didn't move around much during vigorous play. I prefer harnesses to adjust to a point where the dildo rests on, or close to, my pubic mound because I get more stimulation during thrusting and it just looks more natural because cocks don't jut out from the abdomen. The Fetish Fantasy Plus Size sits up too high for my liking and doesn't make me feel like I'm sporting a real male appendage.
The small o-ring is only 1 1/4" in inside diameter and barely allows the included dildo of the same width to fit inside. Since the o-ring is not interchangeable you'll be stuck with using only dicks on the smaller side of the spectrum with this harness. The black dong in the kit has a wide base which locks it firmly into the o-ring and has 5" of insert-able length which should be enough for beginners or nervous partners. It has absolutely no texture or pronounced head whatsoever and easily enters a puckered anus with little effort.

Performance

It didn't take an excessive amount of fiddling to get this strap-on harness to fit my body pretty firmly. After stepping into the plethora of straps it did take some work to get the nylons straps to slide through the buckles but it was a fairly shallow learning curve. I found that the heart shaped panel felt floppy and I kept repositioning it until I finally decided to rip it off and toss it in the trash as it proves no purpose other than aesthetically. The included dildo held tight in the o-ring and with proper firm strap adjustment didn't flop around uncontrollably but also didn't fit low enough on my pubic mound for my liking. The straps did leave a chafing rash both on my waist and thighs after a 20 minute session but at least didn't dig into my labia like most single strap harnesses do. Both my husband and I don't particularly care for the nylon strapping and feel that it's cheap looking and not 'bad-girl' enough for our preferred pegging image. We also didn't care much for the included jelly dildo because it had no texture and I personally like to see a realistic silicone dick jutting out from me. After a few minutes of thrusting we switched to our newly acquired Boy 1 dildo which fit and felt great. While my husband had an enjoyable time I didn't get the stimulation a lower riding harness gives me and I think I'll be sticking to my Simply Sexy strap-on.

Care and Maintenance

If you decide to leave the front leather panel attached to this harness cleaning will be much more onerous as immersion in water isn't possible. In that case a wipe down with a damp cloth followed by occasional leather conditioning is really all that's possible. I recommend tearing off the panel and tossing it in the trash which allows the entire apparel to be soaked in soap and water to rid all bodily fluids. Hang it up to dry because the heat of a dryer could melt the nylon and cause the rubber o-ring to crack.
As for the jelly dildo it is porous and can't be completely disinfected by any means so that means either you cover it with a condom during use or you never share between holes or partners. Bacteria will hide out in this product so beware. Don't ever let the jelly material contact other precious toys in your collection because it will cause them to dissolve into a sticky mess or cause color transfer at the least. We chose to throw ours in the trash after a single use because it just wasn't worth the headache of keeping this sticky, stinky dinky.

Packaging

PipeDream chose a 10 1/2" x 6" x 3" cardboard box to encase their harness and the jelly dong is further wrapped in a plastic bag. The graphic on the box is of a curvy (I won't say plus-sized) model wearing nylons and sporting their new appendage. My husband said she was 'one hot looking momma' so the packaging does appeal to the male audience at least. Their are no user instructions included whatsoever and the statements on the box are only that the included dildo is 100% phthalate free and that the harness flatters full-figured women with curves. It's about as discrete as a photo of a sexy chick wearing a strap-on can be and isn't useful as a long-term storage container due to its large size.
