I feel like Goldilocks...

Yep, being in this swing totally makes me think of what she would have felt like had Baby Bear's stuff not been there for Goldilocks. It's too small, too low, too rough, and all around an awful fit. I will give it that it's a great quality product, but it is a real pain for those of us that are larger, taller people.

Use

This is supposed to hold up an individual so a couple can explore new positions. It's rated to support 300lbs of weight, but I am plus size and tall and I found it very uncomfortable. I was supported, but I didn't want to be in the swing. My partner is 6'4" and I am 6'; we both felt awkward and ungainly in this.

It's going to be great for more average sized people, but for those near the weight limit or on the taller side, may encounter problems with actually getting this to work out.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

This is made from several different types of materials. The straps and small cushions are made from nylon while the adjusters for them are plastic. The cushions are small and don't really have a lot of squish. As a plus size woman, I found them largely to be uncomfortable because they felt a little cutty on my skin. I didn't actually get cut, and I don't think I would, but it still wasn't comfortable. The straps were rough, but I have sensitive skin, so others may not find them to be that bad. They do clean up pretty easily; you can just rub them down with a damp soapy cloth. All the stitching is strong and well reinforced.

All of the overhead rigging is made from steel and is very sturdy. Due to my work I am well aware of how to safely suspend people, and this is something that I feel is very safe if installed correctly. If you are over 200 lbs, you will want to circumvent the spring. It's also something to think about if you are tall. My boyfriend and I are over 6' tall, and we had to clip the swing directly to the eye bolt without the spring or the chain because it was too low.

For the average body type, this would probably be fine, but for tall and heavier bodies, it needs a lot of adjustment, and even then it's not super comfortable.

Performance

We got this because we both have chronic pain that impacts our sex life, and we thought that this was a neat tool to try to circumvent our health problems. When we tried it, it just ended up not fitting our frames at all and made it worse. If you are average size, you may have better luck with it. My 260lbs may have been held up, but I didn't feel supported, and the straps just squished me together which made it hard for the right things to reach the right places.

The majority of the time when I was in this, I felt like a sack of potatoes, and the rest of the time I felt like I was all legs and arms getting in the way.

This didn't work for us, but we're keeping it for now. We may modify the straps, so that they more make a hammock or just keep it around for use with others. It's a bit pricey to just give away.
    • Cumbersome
    • Difficult to use

Care and Maintenance

They do clean up pretty easily; you can just rub them down with a damp soapy cloth. There's no way to remove the swing from the steel frame really, so you can't get much beyond hand washing this.

The swing unhooks from the eye bolt and basically collapses down. It'll easily slid under a bed or tucked into a closet.
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

If you are uncomfortable about any kind of chub real or imagined, this is not going to help. The bouncing action just made me feel like every ounce of extra that I had was on display and wiggling just to mock me. It was a terribly unflattering experience, and I am pretty secure in my body for an American woman.

Experience

So, I have a fear of heights. When I ordered this, I didn't even think about it because I have never been afraid of playground swings, but once I was in it, legs akimbo, I started to feel that panic that I get when I am looking over a high rooftop. The free movement didn't help, and I actually got vertigo. If you have a fear of heights, I would not recommend this. It's kinda pricey for something that you may end up terrified of.

    Aw! I'm so sorry to hear this didn't work very well for y'all. That's very disappointing. Wonder if the Pleasure Swing would be better? I know I recently seen a swing that had a lot more support (than any I've seen) including a back piece and everything! It looked perfect, but I already got the Pleasure Swing for now. Anyways, I bet it would be easier for you guys to use without so much pain and stuff. I just can't remember the name of it or the company.

    Thanks for sharing on this! It looks a lot like the Pleasure Swing. Sometimes my back and neck end up feeling stiff and achy if I'm in mine too long or not situated just right. I didn't even think about this thing being bouncy. I don't know if I'd like that either. Mine does not bounce. I bet it'd be fun to sit in this and just bounce for fun though. Lol. Sometimes I like to swing really high in my swing just for the fun of it, sex aside. Ha Ha.

    Sorry it doesn't work well for you. I think with my wife's size, and lack of acrophobia, this might work well for us! Thanks for the thoughtful, well-written review.
