Make me blush leather collar - collar by Sportsheets - review by SilverVixen

In the Pink, I think?!

This collar is definitely a "for looks only" item. If you're searching for a functional bondage collar there are better options available!

Stylishly Submissive

I'm a huge fan of collars, anything leather, silver and pink so it's no surprise that I jumped at the opportunity to own an irresistible combination of several of my favorite things! The Make Me Blush Leather Collar by Sportsheets is a 1 ½ inch wide textured pink leather collar with smooth disc-like silver studs, a center D-ring and black contrast stitching. The collar secures in the back via three silver snaps and the inside of the collar is lined with thick black chenille-like fur.

Pink - Hot? I think not.

The look of this collar reminds me of a bondage session gone "girly" - adding an innocent twist is always fun! One thing that isn't so hot is the size or the way the collar attaches in the back. The collar is large (lengthwise) especially if you have a small frame. Both myself and a girlfriend have to overlap the snaps; we skip to the last of 3 snaps in order for this to fit securely. Since this is the case, I personally think this collar is inappropriate for bondage practices. The single closure does not hold the collar as securely as if you had full usage of all 3 snaps. In fact, I had to add a small loop of material to secure the overhang. If you have a larger neck the collar may work better for you, but this is definitely more of an accessory versus a functional collar. The collar is designed to fit up to a 17 inch neckline.

Pull Me Problems

The D-Ring closure on 'Make Me Blush' isn't as robust as, for example, the Spartacus Leather Collar I own and love. I prefer to have secure buckles and a well riveted D-Ring. This pink collar uses a strip of material that's looped over the ring and stitched underneath, leaving the D-ring hanging down. Since the ring isn't riveted directly on the center of the collar it makes it a little awkward/uncomfortable when it's pulled.

Pure Fuzz

Even though the black fur lining is a nice touch, making the inside of the collar comfortable and smooth, it gets irritating if you sweat. The fur soaks up the extra moisture and holds it against your skin. Ordinarily my collar is the last thing to go, but this one goes quick for all the wrong reasons! It's aggravating! To clean the collar- I use a mix of mild soap and water then let it air dry.

Final Thoughts...

Usually I'm fairly passionate about collar purchases, they're among my favorite items to own, but this one didn't move me as much as I'd hoped, in fact it left me a little underwhelmed. The Make Me Blush Leather Collar may make an occasional appearance (based on looks alone) but sadly this pretty pink number won't see much real action.
Follow-up commentary
I really haven't warmed up to this collar any more than the day I received it. I've worn it several times and the material inside still traps excess moisture.

I did however notice a feature I hadn't discovered originally. I am able to turn this collar inside out and wear the piling on the outside for a quick change of "looks".

The snaps are still annoying (with the extra overhang) and I'm not 100% comfortable using this for more serious leash play as I have to use this on the last snap in order to make it fit. It's way to long for me! Which means I can only snap one snap - the tightest one.

It's too bad, I really did love the looks of this collar! Unfortunatley, it's strictly become a novelty item.

    Very thorough review of this collar. Nice work and too bad it didn't hold up for you. There's got to be a sturdy pink collar out there some where, right? Thanks for the review.

    I like the style of it. Too bad it isn't well made. This is a collar that I'd definitely wear too - if it were made better.
