Strap-On In Style!

As I’m personally very drawn to things with interesting design, and also anything velvety and soft to the touch, I could not help but want this gorgeous Velvet Harness.  Because I am such a lucky girl, the wonderful people at GoodVibes sent it to me!  Thank you Goodvibes! Let’s start out with a picture of it.

Velvet Harness, Front

(Velvet Harness shown with the  Rippler, also available from GoodVibes.)  From the front, the harness looks like this.  I find the style of the harness to be quite comfortable.  For one, there are two leg loops and no strap that goes between your butt crack.  I have a harness like that, and while it stays on well, it’s a bit uncomfortable to me.

The first time I put this strap-on on, I needed help.  The straps are very long (and can accommodate up to 60″ hips.  The best part about this, is that once you get your harness on, you can cut the straps to a more reasonable length than shown in my pictures, and burn the ends slightly so they melt and will not fray.  I had great success with this method.  I do think it’s best to leave 5 or 6″ as a tail if possible, so that you can adjust a bit up or down if need be.  During use, I noticed a little bit of sliding with the straps since they are made of nylon.  It wasn’t a big deal, and I didn’t have any issues just reaching back and readjusting as needed.  Literally, the amount of slipping was an inch or less, so it doesn’t get in the way of play terribly.  The harness does come with three O rings so that you can use this with most of your flared base toys.

Harness From The Back

The best feature of this strap-on, in my opinion is the absolutely gorgeous corset back.  Both the corset, and the triangular base in the front of the strap-on are velvety and so soft and luxurious to touch.  If you have any insecurities about your bum though, this is the strap on for you.  The straps and corset pattern frames your posterior beautifully.  And, even if you love your butt, this will give you another reason to.  There’s never a limit on how much you can love your bum.

Close Up

On the front of the strap-on, there is a place to put a bullet vibe.  I found that this did nothing for me, as the vibe itself is very weak, and therefore, it isn’t something that can really be felt by a partner either.  Good thought, Sportsheets, but this part was a bit of a bust.

For those of you who like to wear your harness under your clothing, I recommend a different harness.  The corset back, while beautiful, is likely to show under clothes since it is a little bulky.

Who will benefit from this strap-on?  Beginners will certainly appreciate its low cost and the fact that you can wash it in a lingerie bag in the washing machine (on cold, and drip dry).  Newbs will also like the low price, and the lush feel.  I think that intermediate to advanced users will find that this is a great piece to add to their collection, although I think that everyone will be a bit disappointed in the bullet vibe, but I do not personally find that to be a huge let-down.  Larger folks will love the incredible adjustability of the strap-on, and anyone smaller than 60″ in the hip are will have no complaints.

I think that many people will find many different reasons to love this velvet harness, and I hope that you’ll give it a try.  I am giving it 4 paws.Thank you so much, GoodVibes, for allowing me the chance to try this harness in exchange for an honest and fair review.
