Use

Needing a collar to punish or reward that 'bad girl' in your life? Well this collar is great for doing just that. Whether you're looking to make a statement or just have some fun with your partner, this collar adds a bit of flair to the bedroom or dungeon scene. This collar can also be worn as jewelry if you desire, because it is in a choker form and lacks the d-ring or o-ring that makes it look like a BDSM product. Whether you're into the punk scene or just have a love of leather, this collar can be worn wherever you go to make the statement emblazoned on it in metal rivets.

Always remember that leather should not be soaked or submerged in water. Do not wear your collar in the shower, tub, or any other place where water is present and in large amounts. This particular collar is not for suspension or heavy restraint, and is more of a statement item when used. If you want to travel with the collar, simply pack it as you would a belt in your bags. While it has 'bad girl' in metal rivets, it looks more like jewelry in most cases rather than a BDSM product.

Other use: If you end up not liking this product yourself, you could always put it on your dog whenever she's being a 'bad girl' to give yourself a laugh.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The 'Bad Girl' collar by Eden is a sturdy, well-crafted leather item. Its rivets making up the 'bad girl' logo on the collar are fitted into the leather, and the item doesn't feel cheap in any capacity. The leather has a light smell to it, like all new leather items, but it's not strong enough to be smelled without placing the collar directly under the nose and breathing in deeply. The material is smooth and slightly padded, and the only bumpy places are that of the rivets along the collar making up the logo. Due to the smooth finish, the padded feel and the ease of use, this collar would be great for anyone who is looking to experiment in BDSM or those who are already into it.

The design of this collar is simplistic, but it will hold up to normal wear and tear well, and should last for a long time with normal play and regular maintenance. The collar is made up of two pieces of leather sewn and glued together. This particular collar is made up of two pieces so that the back of the rivets do not lay against the user's skin and irritate it. The piece of leather making up the back of the collar is padded, and feels quite nice when the collar is on the user. The metal rivets and buckle are smooth and have no rough edges whatsoever to cause any injuries, and the notches are cleanly punched out.

Overall length of collar: 20 inches
From Buckle to first hole: 18 inches (biggest size)
From Buckle to last hole: 15 inches (smallest size)
Collar width: 1-3/4 inch wide (widest point)

If your neck is smaller than 18 inches then this collar will fit you. If you have a larger neck, then this collar probably will not fit you. However, with the holes, you can place some kind of extender on it with another buckle, and it should fit just fine. The average neck should have no problems with this collar at all. If you want, you can also add a d-ring or o-ring to the notched side of the collar in order to attach a leash. Simply slip it on and you can hook a lead on.

Performance

Once on, this collar is sturdy, and will not come loose from the buckle closure that it has. If tugged or yanked on, it doesn't budge, and can hold up to some fairly good amount of force applied to it. This collar is not intended for suspension purposes, so do not use it for such. As stated before in the previous section, this collar requires an average neck to use it. If you're having trouble with this, an extender of some sort may help. Cutting the buckle and a few of the notches off of an old belt can serve as an extender for this collar.

To add an extension, place the buckle of the old belt through one of the notches in the collar. Use the notches in the old belt through the buckle of the collar and voila, you have extended it. Make sure that the belt is the same width or about the same width of the collar, otherwise it will not work. Even without the extender, this collar is easy to put on and take off. It does not have a locking feature, but it doesn't need one.

Because of the padding, this collar is comfortable and the padding feels nice. There isn't reason to worry about the material chafing, or the rivets cutting into your skin.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Leather can be pretty high maintenance due to the fact it is porous and rates a 7 out of 10 on the Eden safety scale. After each use, you can wipe the collar down with a lightly damp cloth, but long term care can be a little trickier. If you want to keep the leather from drying out or cracking, purchase some leather conditioner and cleaner designed specifically for leather products. Always make sure to store your leather in a cool, dry place, and keep it out of direct sunlight. You can purchase leather wipes at your local store, and this can also keep your leather looking new.

When it comes to the metal rivets making up the 'bad girl' logo on it, be sure to always dry them, and if you're worried about them discoloring, carefully apply a coat of clear nail polish to the surface of them, making sure not to get any on the leather itself. Taking care of your leather items will keep them around for years to enjoy. Once you've cleaned your leather item, hang it like you would a belt to keep the leather from becoming too wrinkled or buckled in the spots where the most stress is put on the leather. I hang my leather items in my spare closet on shower curtain hooks. Such items include: floggers, belts, harnesses, and whips.

    • High maintenance

Packaging

The "Bad Girl" collar came packaged in clear plastic cellophane bag that is easily recycled by tossing it in the bin. There weren't any instructions included with the collar, but it's straightforward so there weren't any instructions required. The collar came shipped in a small, unmarked, brown cardboard box. There weren't any kind of labels to give away what was inside. It was simply marked Web Merchants Inc. with the name and address to the receiver.

The package was secure and had an air pillow inside of it to keep it from bumping around. If you'd like to gift this to someone, the shipping label was fairly easy to peel off of the box without damage. You could wrap the box it comes packaged inside of with wrapping paper. This will keep the collar discreet and won't embarrass whoever you're gifting it to. If the box is somehow damaged, you can re-box it or simply put the collar into a big enough gift bag.

Follow-up commentary
We still use this collar in our play, and it's still like new. It's a very comfortable collar. My partner and I still love to use this during heavier play, and I get her to wear it whenever she's been a "bad girl."
