Seductive schoolgirl gets a failing grade

I really wanted to love this product. From the waist up, this costume is fun and sexy. But the harness is too uncomfortable to be worn for long, and I violently detest the dildo that came with it.

If you love this concept, as I did, I believe you'll be better off combining a schoolgirl costume with a separate harness and dildo for more versatility and a better fit. I've suggested some items in the 'Similar Products' section that could be used to create this look.

First Impressions

The first thing I noticed upon opening the box was the smell of the dildo. It is a horrible chemical odor, and a dreadful first impression to a product that should be fun and playful.

The Dildo

The emblem on the box says the dildo is made of Sil-a-gel. Don't be fooled by the name. There is no silicone anywhere in this. I think what they were going for with the name was 'It's a jelly that feels like silicone'. Whatever it is, it stinks. I don't know what chemicals it is releasing to make that awful, headache-inducing smell, but even though it claims to be non-toxic, I'm not putting that dildo anywhere near my delicate bits or my lover's.

If you are less sensitive to smells than I am, and want to use the dildo, then it is safe with water or silicone based lubricants. It rates as a 5 on Eden's safety chart. The material is supposed to be antibacterial, but it cannot be sterilized by boiling, so make your own decisions about sharing between partners. It can be cleaned with soap and water or toy cleaner.

Happily, the dildo can be replaced by another Vac-u-lock dildo, such as this one which is silicone and available in pink to match the theme of the costume.

The Harness

I was looking forward to getting my first vac-u-lock harness. While I didn't expect it to be as comfortable as my Sedueux Diva Plus Size Harness, I was at least hoping for something fun and useful. The harness I reviewed is a plus size, and I did not have any difficulty getting it to fit with extra strapping to spare. But the stiffness of the nylon, the width of the leg parts of the harness, and the placement of the entire arrangement, made the harness rather uncomfortable for me.

The dildo panel sits very low, with the top of the skirt/harness a little below the top of my pubic hairline. Some people probably prefer this placement, with the pubic bone behind the dildo, but I'd be more comfortable if it were a bit higher. However I adjusted it, I was unable to get it to sit differently because of the way the leg straps are put together.

The leg straps are too wide and stiff, and there's something that just feels wrong about the angle. I was able to adjust the leg straps and hip strap to fit, but there was no adjustment I could do that made this harness comfortable enough to wear for an extended period.

Vac-u-Lock

I've wanted to try Doc Johnson's Vac-U-Lock system for some time, and this was my first opportunity. While I wasn't willing to use the dildo for its intended purpose, I did insert and remove the Vac-U-Lock plug so I could see how it fit. It feels sturdier than an O-ring strap-on, and is rather difficult to pull out. The kit did not come with the lubricating powder, but you can always use your own cornstarch for this purpose. If I decided to use Vac-U-Lock dildos regularly, I'd want a plug for each dildo, so that I only had to snap the entire piece on and off the harness as needed.

The Costume

The costume is the best part of the kit. The pink plaid fabric is a stretchy knit with a white reverse. I was not able to find any information on the fabric content. The "skirt", which is really just a ruffle sewn on to the harness, has a second white mesh ruffle underneath the pink one.

The bra will certainly not win any engineering awards for support purposes, but most women should have no difficulty in getting it to fit. There's an adjustable bit around the back strap, and you can make the ties between the breasts and behind the neck tighter or looser to fit. The product photo shows each bra cup closed above the centre bow and open below. It actually arrives stitched closed, both above and below, with threads that are easily snipped. If you want a nipple peeking out, then snip away. I really liked having this option, and it made the bra even more fun.

The little necktie accessory is just a cute little pink bit attached to an elastic neckstrap. It's a nice little extra piece.

It's really a shame that the skirt didn't come separate from the harness, as the harness is just too uncomfortable to wear.

Follow-up commentary
I've never tried to use it since the first review. The combination of the smell of the dildo and the poor fit of the harness are too much to overcome.

    According to Doc Johnson, Sil-a-gel is a brand name for an antibacterial coating applied to the surface of PVC/Rubber dildos. The smell you're experiencing is the dildo itself, sil-a-gel is odorless. It's definitely confusing no matter how you slice it, though.

    Great review!

    great review, thanks for sharing. I was hoping this would receive a better review, then it did, I guess I will pass on getting it.

    What size it the bra top? How well did it fit your top? What size are your breast?

    great review

    Ugg, judging between this and your other review, I'd say this brand and style is totally not worth getting at all.

    It looks like a great idea with a poor execution. They've added a french maid costume to the line, but I doubt it will work any better.
