The Tantric Satin Ties have a lovely, sexy look to them that go great paired with a lingerie or "special" time set. I personally feel that they're a more feminine-, submissive-looking set, but others may disagree me. Though they're plushy, they have a sultry look to them with the scarlet red, satin fabric and laced-up ribbon—a very beautiful addition to a great time with your partner. The sewing that puts these pieces together is done perfectly, and the satin is very smooth on the wrists. However, the plush and satin, when moved against each other, make a scratchy noise that isn't very pleasing. Though this shouldn't be a problem when in use, they are a bit noisy.
These cuffs are actually sized more like ankle cuffs—they're even a bit big for my partner's ankles on the smallest fitting. In other words, they're cut with a lot of give, so I doubt that anyone should really have a problem with these fitting them (except for those who are smaller). What I don't like about the use of Velcro is that if you're anywhere above the smallest fitting, you'll have the scratchy part of the Velcro rubbing against your wrists, which will really hurt after a while of use.
Ranges from about 4½ " to about 13" for each wrist cuff, but the ideal size, without any overlap, is 10".
As an aside, on one of the cuffs, there is a tag that says "MADE IN CHINA". It can easily be removed with a seam ripper if it bothers you, or can be ripped off. Personally, I will use my seam ripper—it doesn't look too nice where it is.
Personally, I tend to prefer metal handcuffs that lock in place, that hurt when rubbed against your wrists enough—not soft, plushy, Velcroed cuffs that are made for comfort. But these cuffs, though they are what I tend to not prefer in a pair, are beautiful, work well, and come with the necessary parts. Since they're cut to fit practically anyone, you can also use these "hand"cuffs as ankle cuffs if you'd like to.
These are easy to put on, take no time at all, and will stay in place through even heavy struggling. (Yes, oddly, they do! I was quite surprised.) Make sure that when you're putting them on someone or yourself that you press the Velcro together tightly. This will make them stay on for longer periods, and resist more movement.
If they become dirtied by anything, do take a lightly damp towel and just brush it over them. These are something very difficult to clean because of the plush and satin mix, so if by any chance you get something on them, you can put a little detergent or soap rubbed into the towel and clean them that way. When finished, leave them out to dry—do not put them in drawers or closets when they need to be dried! If you're worried about someone seeing them, putting them on bathroom counters works fine.
The cuffs come in a plastic container as shown in the pictures. It isn't anything made for beautiful presentation or aesthetics, it simply works for what it's made for. Though I prefer my products to come in lovely casing, what they're in works fine.
The pictures, however, on the plastic packaging are a bit misleading and do the set no justice—the ties are a much deeper, scarlet red that look much better than how they're displayed on the box and in their photos.
This cuff set will look great with the Corset Style Babydoll Set—they fit together so beautifully, a perfect match. I love the pairing of the two, and they make for a wonderful, sweet evening.
My set had a few threads sticking out that worried me, but they should be fine when used. If yours do too: make sure that you do not trap the loose threads inside of the Velcro! This will cause your cuffs to rip and tear and they will be unusable.
