Why it is important to shop for the right strap-on

With so many options available right now, the most important thing is to ensure that you invest in a strap-on that checks all the right boxes.  

Whether you are a first-time buyer or an experienced one doesn’t matter. The wide range of options out there will ensure that you get the exact type of product you are looking for.

What to expect in this review

Here, we are going to make things much easier for you. We have worked with sex experts to create this review and guide of the best strap-on worth considering. Before we get into details, we have explained important things that will also help you choose the best product. 

Important features to look for in a strap-on

Some strap-ons come in a kit consisting of two things. The first one is the dildo and the second one is the harness. This streamlines the process, especially for first-time buyers. Buying the two at once is also more affordable compared to buying them separately. 

But there is also one good reason why you should buy them separately. That is, you can match the best fit that suits your preferences since each of them has unique features that you should consider. That said, here are the best features to look for in a strap-on

 

Style

Harnesses are basically available in three style options. These include;

  • Thong
  • Jockstrap
  • Underwear

Jockstraps

‘’Jockstraps resembles a classic jockstrap’’, says Ashely Cobb, a sex toy reviewer and host of Sex with Ashley. 

They have straps that go around the waist and over each butt chick. 

Thongs

Thongs have a strap around the waist as well. There is also a strap going between the butt cheeks and another going between the legs. 

Underwear

These are not very common. They resemble a pair of boxers or underwear. 

There are also other less common strap-on options like chin, and chest harnesses, strapless strap-on, and suspender harnesses.

Why the strap-on style matters

It is the style of the harness that influences the available sizes. For instance, thongs and jockstraps are available in one or two-size options. They are also flexible and fit in different body types. 

Underwear harnesses vary in size just like the normal underwear or boxers

Adjustable harnesses can be a good option if you want to share the experience with a partner. With this option, you can also adjust it depending on your body size.

Comfort and ease to use

The best harness for you should also be comfortable to wear. It should also be stable enough to use with fewer distractions. The comfort and stability of a harness mostly lie in its quality.

In general, the two-strap style ones tend to be more stable and comfortable compared to single strap options. This makes them a good option for beginners.

Why choosing a comfortable strap-on is important

It is important to consider how long your preferred harness would sit on your body before investing in it. How does it sit on the public bone? Does it press the bone and make you feel uncomfortable? 

Remember that the aim of the strap-on is to make you feel good and not the opposite.

What level of comfort should you go for?

Speaking of comfort, not everyone will get the same experience when using a specific type of harness. For instance, a strappy harness can be more comfortable for you but causes discomfort to someone else. The ones resembling underwear can also be comfortable to some people but not others. Others find the underwear style too uncomfortable to use and prefer the thong style and so forth. 

There are even some harness styles that can lead to chafing depending on how it fits on your body. 

The type of material used

The material is also an important consideration. Here you need to consider two things;

  • How comfortable the material is
  • Whether it is easy to clean

Types of harness materials, their pros, and cons

Usually, harnesses are either available in fabric or leather. 

Leather

Those made of leather are stronger compared to their fabric cousins. On the flip side, leather is a porous material which means that it can be a good option if you want to share it with your partner (you cannot sterilize it). 

Fabric 

 On the other hand, fabric harnesses are comfortable, washable, and can be shared with a partner. Note that fabric is a generalized term so ensure that you choose a specific material that can work well for you. 

For instance, some people complain that nylon straps remind them of their childhood backpacks and stuff like that. There are also fabrics that are more breathable than others. 

Dildo compatibility

Lastly, you should pay attention to the 0-ring (this is the ring through which you place the dildo in a hardness). 

It should be the correct size for the dildo you are interested in to fit. It is very important to ensure that the diameters of this hole and your dildos match. There are even harnesses that come with more than one 0-rings. Others have elastic 0-rings that are easy to stretch and fit your dildo.

Other important considerations

On top of the above factors, there are also several other things that you should consider when buying a harness. Some things like how the strap-on looks when you put it on also matters a lot. 

You also should consider how easy it is to put on the strap-on or place the dildo. The above points however are a perfect place to start. 

Reviewing the best strap ons

Here, we have reviewed individual harnesses and combo kits. (We decided to review the dildos separately to avoid confusion) Luckily enough, most stores selling these products offer suggestions on which dildos can go well with the harness you decide to invest in. So you won’t be left in the dark.
