How to Choose & Put On a Strap-On Harness

How to choose a strap-on customer

Lots of peeps ask us about how to choose a strap-on, and how the different styles effect how easy they are to put on, how comfortable they are, and how securely they hold the dildo... If you're looking for this info, read on!
Our range of strap-on harnesses may look complicated, but essentially there are just two styles to choose from:

1. Strap-on with two back straps

This style is worn 'jock-style' and has 2 back leg-straps that divide between your legs.

2. Underwear-style strap-on harness

This style is worn like a pair of underpants.

Why Choose a Harnesses with two back straps?

  • The two back straps divide between your¬†legs and curve around your buttocks. This makes it very comfortable to wear and keeps your sexy bits accessible!

  • Made from soft leather in a variety of lush colours, these harnesses sit softly and securely against the skin and fasten with D-rings, so there's no buckle-pinch.

  • A front panel holds the dildo close to the pubic bone and every harness comes with three (3) sizes of interchangeable rings so it can be used with different sizes of dildos.

  • Compatible with a¬†Dual-Dildo Accessory¬†which gives the harness wearer the option of penetration themselves whilst wearing this harness. Learn how to use a dual dildo accessory

  • Wide adjustability within the sizes means 2 partners can often share the same strap-on.

    Why choose a wide-back strap-on harness?

    • A wide-back harness is stylish and comfortable with a shapely back panel that hugs your lower back and hips to fully support your dildo, no matter how large or heavy the dildo you choose to slip in.

    • Double D-ring fasteners are riveted to main panel so there is no need to position the leg¬†straps on the waistband; simply pull them tight for the perfect size adjustment.

      How to choose the right size strap-on harness?

      Ever mindful that folks are not created one size, we offer a large range of sizes in our strap-on harnesses. If anything, our sizes come up on the larger side of traditional sizes, so if you are on the cusp of sizes, it's best to choose the smaller option. The thing to remember is that whilst strong, soft leather is supple and will stretch over time.

      If you do find that once you've pulled your harness tight, the adjustable leg straps are long, simply tuck them behind the hip straps.

      How to put on 2-strap harnesses?

      Whether you choose a wide-back strap-on or the more simple style, putting on, and getting out of this style of harness is the same.

      How to Put On A 2 Strap Harness

       

      1. If you can wiggle the harness past your hips without undoing it, simply loosen the front straps through the D-rings to leave 3-5cm at the ends.

      2. If you can't wiggle in, simply undo one front strap before stepping in.

      3. Step into the front leg loops, just like a pair of pants.

      4. Pull it up so the back panel sits on your lower back.

      5. Position the front panel over your pubic area.

      6. Slip your dildo through the ring so it nestles against your pubic area and adjust as necessary.

      7. Tighten the front leg straps by pulling them down evenly and equally in a downward direction.

      8. For a really secure fit, bend forward at the hips and pull front straps of the dildo harness again.

      To remove the harness, simply undo a front strap and step out.

      You don't need to undo the lacing on the corset harness - it's purely for decoration.

      Underwear-style strap-on harnesses

      Thong, brief or pant-style strap-on harnesses are worn like a pair of underpants. This style can only be shared with a partner who is the same clothing size as you.
