Elegant, IndeedElegance is a beautiful and high quality luxury vibrator that's made of 100% silicone and plastic. Its control pad is easy-to-use, and its vibrations rumble throughout the entire length of the vibrator, giving a great amount of pleasure. Elegance is also rechargeable, meaning that you can use it over and over again without the hassle of batteries. Perfection? I believe that it's been achieved.
I would definitely recommend this for people new to using vibrators who are wanting to get something longer lasting and rechargeable. It's also an excellent buy for people that are extremely experienced who like rumbly, high vibrations.
It's a fairly firm silicone, but since it is just a layer, I was not able to really tell. The layer sits over the plastic inside, so it's not flexible at all.
Silicone has no smell, and no taste, which is great for people new to using vibrators or even those that are extremely experienced, as they'll both appreciate that it does not stink up their other toys.
It has a total length of 9", with 5 3/4" being insertable. The girth at the tip of the toy is about 1.5" in diameter, and the shaft has a diameter of 1 1/4". Elegance's control pad takes up about a third of the length of the vibrator, so it's very easy to grip, and also easy to sift through while it's in use.
There are fifteen (or more, I lost count) levels of vibration, ranging from a low rumble (that's still fairly pleasing) to a high buzzing rumble that's extremely strong. There are five different patterns to use: the regular buzzing, which resonates through the entire vibrator, a pin-point vibration in the vibrator's tip, rumbly vibrations through the shaft of the toy, and two buzzing vibration patterns, one with a long buzz and short buzz, and another with short, fast pulsating vibrations.
Elegance is not a very loud vibrator, but its sound matches its intensity. It's not too loud that it can be heard from miles away, but it's also not extremely quiet. The vibrator should not be submerged in water, as it's only "splash proof." I do not recommend putting it in the tub or pool.
The fast pulsating vibration, on a mid-range speed, was my play partner's favorite. It was good for teasing, leading up to the "main event." Some people might feel that the medium speeds are extremely strong and numbing, and others might feel that the highest levels are too soft. It's a very subjective toy. For my girl, she liked it, so it was just right.
Elegance charges by a set of two cords, one that can be plugged into a USB port, and another that has a USB port inside of it that then plugs into a wall. You cannot use Elegance while you're charging, sadly, but it does have a short charging time.
Using water-based lubricant is the best choice for this vibrator.
You can store Elegance in its original packaging, or you can store it in the pouch that comes with it, away in a drawer, chest, or toy box. It can be placed anywhere and remain safe; I do not, however, recommend putting it in a damp place—keep it somewhere dry.
The box is made of a hard, firm cardboard, that displays the company's name as well pictures of Elegance—this means that it isn't very discreet, but it is a lovely package to give someone as a gift. I noticed that it does not close fully, however, but it is still safe for storage. The instructional guide that it comes with makes owning Elegance very easy, and tells how to use Elegance, how long to charge it for, and how much play one charge will give.
