Great control, Comfy, Runs small

For the price, this is a very good harness. I have had more expensive leather harnesses that were bulky, not very adjustable, uncomfortable, hard to put on, and with poor control to boot. This little gem is my favorite harness so far.

Use

The fourth harness I've tried, and it is most definitely my favorite. Not only is it truly versatile, it looks and fits great over thongs, tights, and leggings, and it feels comfy under jeans for a sexy surprise, and the control is fabulous. The dildo really feels like an extension of my body wearing these shorts - not like some kind of awkward piece of plastic that I struggle to control.

Despite the fact that I accidentally bought a large (I am a very petite and fit woman), the elastic leg straps were a bit tight, and the fit was a tad loose but surprisingly attractive. I'm guessing it runs small.

My favorite part about them is how adjustable they are. I can pull the straps snug, and the dildo is held very close to my body. I have no issues "not knowing what's going on" down there or really feeling athletic and powerful in them.

The main problems are that the material is a bit cheaper than I expected, and for high-waisted girls, the dildo sits too high. It sits almost near my belly button instead of resting over my crotch. This is not particularly good for mutual pleasure, and it dulls the effectiveness of my hip gyrations.

Material

My immediate impression of the material was that it was cheaper than it looks on the box. Everything was superbly comfy, but the stretchy material was pretty thin, and it seems like it could wear out or tear easily. Additionally, the elastic bands are of low-medium quality. Overall, it looked like something I could have sewn myself.

That said, it's very comfortable and seems very waterproof and easy to clean (in contrast to a lot of leather dildos with shiny bells and whistles that always get gross in hard-to-scrub places).
    • Comfortable
    • Smooth
    • Vegan

Design / Craftsmanship

The craftmanship was good even if the materials were on the cheap side. It looks sexy.

Better yet, the straps are so intuitive. It's really obvious how to put the thing together, and it's really easy to tighten. The buckles "snap down" in place which takes some spontaneity out of the tightening but also makes it much more secure and less liable to mid-sex loosening that other strap systems fall prey to. I liked that you could tighten them to the point that the dildo is held very firmly in place without much give - much like if it were actually physically attached to you.

The one downside to the design is that the entire mechanism has a tendency to "scootch up" toward your belly button, and it's hard to get the cock to rest over your crotch. This could have been an easy fix. It looks like it just needs another strap between the legs. I might sew one on!

Finally, because the material is so soft (like a thin pair of spandex shorts), it can easily get crumpled up and twisted inside-out and can then be confusing to put on. I recommend putting in a dildo, trying the product on and tightening the straps to about right, and then storing the product flat someplace. That way, in the heat of the moment, everything is all laid out, and you can slip it right on in a jiffy. Honestly, I've found this product just as easy to pull on as a pair of athletic shorts if you make the right preparations and aren't pulling it out of the package when she's already ready for you. Overall, I give it above-average for ease of use.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Fits many size toys
    • Interchangeable o-ring

Size / Fit

Had I known this product comes in 3 sizes, I never would have purchased the large. I am a very small and very fit person (wear size S t-shirts and small pants as well), but actually, the elastic is just the right tightness! Overall, I'm happy with the size I purchased as long as the elastic doesn't stretch out.

I'm not particularly happy that it rests so high. Leather g-string type harnesses that I've had in the past have been much more low slung (which is better for positing the dildo over one's crotch for pleasure/natural movement).
    • Adjustable
    • Can be worn under clothing
    • Fits comfortably

Performance

I have no complaints. Try it on and lay it out beforehand, and it slips on easy. It is very comfortable. Best part is how adjustable it is and the snug way it holds the dildo. This is superior to leather harnesses I have tried.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on
    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

This looks too delicate to throw in the washing machine and dryer. I would hand wash (as per instructions) and hang to dry. That said, it is much easier to clean than leather in my opinion. I would feel somewhat dirty reusing a leather harness, but I feel like this harness could travel with me between partners (provided it holds up on the durability front) because you can wash it just like underwear, tights, or shorts.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

There were unfortunately no instructions. That said, I've had trouble assembling other harnesses, but I was able to put this baby together in under three minutes. It is very intuitive.

I was surprised to see the top seemed sloppily taped and that the shorts were in a little zip lock baggy despite the high quality colors, graphics, and weight of the package. It was kind of like it was used. Even though the smell and look suggested it was certainly new, the shoddy finishing touches were somewhat disconcerting.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I can't wait to try sewing on an extra strap to see if that fixes the problem of the dildo not resting low enough.

Experience

My partner loves the look and thinks it gives me great control.
Follow-up commentary
As I played around with it more, I got bold and tooled around with the adjustable straps...since you can snap them on and off, I put the longest straps on the bottom and looped through my legs and around my thighs for a more low slung fit. That solved the riding up problem immediately.

But then...

A strap broke while thrusting.

Sigh.

I'm still gonna keep this product and simply use a safety pin or something... probs will eventually sew the strap back on.

In conclusion, I think you need to be careful if you're like me and like the straps extra tight. A lot of pressure on them will obviously cause them to be more susceptible to breakage.
