High quality, Super luxurious, but I need my vibes. Sorry Ella - no enchantment here!

I have really struggled over the rating for this review. Ella is definitely a high quality toy and would make a nice gift for someone. She is easy to clean, easy to use, and has a dual ended design for variety. I am giving her three stars for her quality in design, packaging, and silicone.
Ella's been given a reputation of the dildo that is the "best of all" and if that is the case, I will stick to my vibrators.
Kudos to Lelo for their high quality toy - I just wish it left me satisfied.

Use

Ella is a dual ended dildo that is velvety smooth and made of high quality silicone. One end is designed for G-spot stimulation and has a knob at the tip of it. The knob is approximately 1" wide by 1.5" long and extends down for about 1.5" of the shaft. The other end is thicker and more pointy. This end is about 1.25" in diameter and 7" long.

I personally do not care for the pointy end, but do like the G-spot knob at the other end. For me, her pointy end is just too pointy and because she has very little flex to her, she is very uncomfortable. I love her G-spot knob but I wish it was a bit wider because I have a hard time enjoying her since she feels too narrow.

Because she does not have a flared base at either end, I do not recommend her for anal use.

Material / Texture

Ella is made of a velvety soft silicone and has a little bit of drag, but not very much. She is quite rigid, although you can bend the G-spot portion a tiny bit. She holds lube very well when it is put on her and there is no drag when she is lubed.

I recommend her more for anyone who prefers a smaller girth of 1.25" without ridges, bulges, or bumps. Remember though, she is not very flexible like many silicone toys might be.
    • Smooth
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

I love the design of Ella and many of my favorite vibrators have her same shape, design and size. In fact, I purchased her largely because I'd never had a dildo and found that G-spot vibrators worked well for me, so I wanted to try and transition to a dildo.

Her dimensions are:
Length: 7"
Insertable length: 5"
Circumference: 4"
Diameter: 1 1/4"

I only started playing with toys and looking at toys about 2 months ago. At that time, I would have looked at the rose colored version of Ella and not thought that she might be a sex toy. I might have picked her up to play with her simply because she feels so soft to hold in your hands.

However, now that I know more about toys, I would suspect she was a dildo if I saw her. That wouldn't keep me from traveling with her though, because at least she won't set off anything at the airports since she is made of silicone and not metal.
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play

Performance

I love the design for G-spot stimulation and my favorite vibrators have that same design. However, I am not sure if she is not wide enough for me, if she is too smooth for me, or if I simply need vibrations. Probably all of the above! All I know is that she leaves me frustrated and wanting to grab a vibrator instead.

Maybe it is because she is my first dildo.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because Ella is made of high grade silicone she is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous and phthalates free. She can be boiled and is dishwasher safe, however, I find that I can simply clean her with some soap and water and she's fine.

Since she is silicone, you will want to use only water based lubes on her and store her away from other silicone toys. Fortunately, Lelo includes a storage bag to make storing her easy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

When I think of Lelo, my first thought is "quality" and you can see that not only in the quality of the silicone, but starting in the way it is packaged.

Ella comes in a beautiful black storage box which is very discreet and lovely. It almost reminds me of a jewelers box that you would give a necklace in. When you open the box, Ella is in a black cut-out covered by a clear plastic cover to keep her in place. Underneath this layer are the manuals and sample lube and the black drawstring storage bag.

This gift box is an elegant presentation for this high quality toy.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Personal comments

Have you ever been with someone that "should" have been so right for you - and perhaps you stayed together for a while simply because it was the thing to do, but in the back of your mind there was always this dream of someone else?

There is a scene from the movie "You've Got Mail" that reminds me of this and I'm sharing a link to it from YouTube. In the scene, Frank and Kathleen have realized that they need to break up - while they might appear to be perfect for each other on paper - in reality - there is something missing. Meg Ryan's portrayal of Kathleen as she says "No. No...but there is the dream of someone else" , with that wistful look, is exactly the way I feel about Ella.

She should be right for me. I have vibrators that are almost her size and design exactly and her high quality silicone is exactly what I was looking for in a new toy. Yet, I'm left looking around and dreaming for something else to be fulfilling.

You can find this short scene (1:31) at the link below:

Experience

For those who would like G-spot stimulation but feel they might need more than Ella has to give - you may want to look at Rock Star Stevie which is a very nice silicone vibrator with a plastic base and almost the same dimensions as Ella. For some reason, Stevie can bring me to the O's where Ella leaves with a feeling of "oh...maybe later".

    This is a gorgeous toy. Great review and I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it more. Hope you find something you like more though.

    Ella is so pretty. For a Lelo toy the price point is good. I keep holding off because the curve isn't pronounced enough for me and it doesn't vibrate. I still may end up with Ella just because it's so pretty.

    If you want to try another G spot dildo, you might want to check out the Pure Wand. I had great luck with that one despite the lack of vibrations. Like you, I normally need those!!

    Great review, as always.

    Very nice review! I love the design and appearance of the Ella too, but wondered whether something without vibration would be worthwhile.

    I like my Ella, but I don't really love her, either. I feel similarly to you. She's simply too narrow. Not girthy enough for me, and G Spotting alone doesn't do it for me. I've had my Ella for a year or more and I still haven't written a review.

    Thank you for being honest.

    Nice job---the reviews where they toy didn't win you over but not from any fault of the toy are so hard to write, but you did a great job explaining your dissatisfactions, Ella's good strengths, and even offering a similar, vibrating option

    I like my Ella, but I think extra texture or ridges would have made it even better for me.

    I would love to try Ella, it is too bad she was not your thing. I think you did a great job on your review though, thanks for sharing.

    Nice review. Sorry you didn't love Ella as much as you hoped. If you want to try her with vibrations, you might try using a wand style toy at the same time. Silicone usually transmits vibrations nicely

    Thanks for the review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy Ella. She was my first non-vibrating toy, and I was surprised by how much I love her.
