Things to consider when shopping for a BDSM harness

 

  • Harness Materials: Leather is a popular option for BDSM harnesses both for its strength and its style. Its a great investment if you want a harness that will last for a long time but it does take a little more upkeep. Stretchy fabric harnesses are often machine washable and tend to be cheaper and easier to move in making them great for beginners but not great for restraint play.
  • Restraint Compatibility: If you are shopping for harness that will let you lock your lover up tightly while you toy with them, make sure to look for a harness that comes with restraints or has plenty of D or O-rings to attach your own.
  • Size: Most harnesses have some level of adjustability but you should always measure yourself to check you are getting the right size before you order.
  • Style: While black leather is the standard look for a BDSM harness, that doesn’t have to be the case! We have a few in this review that stray from that in favor of a more playful design!

Our test winner dominated this review with its super sexy design and play potential!

What is a BDSM Harness?

A BDSM harness is a strappy harness, usually worn by a Sub during a BDSM scene. They often have O-rings or D-rings on the collar and body so you can attach different restraints to limit your subs movement or add a leash for leading them around on. Some have built in restraints, like handcuffs or added extras, like nipple or labia clamps. Leather and vegan leather are popular materials as they are strong and fit well with the BDSM aesthetic but there are also other fabric harnesses, which are more beginner friendly. As well as using BDSM harnesses in the bedroom, they have also become a statement piece to wear over your clothes.

Conclusion

If you want a harness to wear for a kinky weekend or you are just dipping your toes into kinky bondage underwear, this is a really great option! You will look and feel the part without having to commit to an expensive or intimidating full leather harness. Of course, if you are looking for more restraint or a stronger harness, this is going to work for you, but if you want something more for the look, this is ideal! The stretchy straps make this harness super comfortable to wear and allows you to move freely. It comes in two parts — the chest piece and the belt with cock ring so you can choose whether you want to use them together or separately. The cock ring won’t be the perfect fit for everyone so make sure to measure your member first!

Conclusion

This harness looks incredibly sexy without being too hardcore bondage. The open cup and crotch design means you can leave the harness on while you play without sacrificing any stimulation. The straps are also slightly stretchy so you won’t feel as confined as you would in a leather harness and it’s a little easier to move around. This does mean it won’t stand up to more intense restraint play but if you are looking for a first bdsm body harness, this one ticks all the boxes! My only complaint is that it’s only available up to a US dress size 12, so won’t be suitable for those in larger bodies. We do however have some other great options with better sizing options in this review, and we’ve got a stunning plus size option coming up!

Strong and stylish, this restraint harness is for all the subs out there that want some added elegance! This is a really versatile piece as it can be worn with the restraints at the front or back of your body and it has a total of 9 D-rings so you can get really creative. The matching collar is also a really nice touch, and is a lot of fun for leading your partner around and deepening your power play. As lovehoney points out, you should always release your partner’s hands when walking them around on the leash in case they fall over! This harness is a little big in size, so if you have a smaller waist, this might not be the best bondage harness for you.

The harness also comes with an extension strap that adds an extra 10 inches to the waist so this harness really does fit a wider range of body sizes.

Wow! This harness just looks amazing! Whether you are wearing at home or as a statement piece over your clothes, you are bound to turn heads! The bold leather straps accentuate your curves while being strong enough to stand up to some more intense restraint play. The whole harness is fully adjustable so you can find the right fit for your body, but this will take a little time, so give yourself plenty of time to get into the harness and adjust it! The only thing I’d love to add to this is some D-rings on the back of the waist band for attaching handcuffs.

This harness from DOMINIX offers style and stimulation! Attached to the thick black leather collar are two sets of tweezer clamps to add some pinchy pleasure — one set for your nipples and one for your labia or clitoris. Not only do these look and feel amazing when you have them on, when you release the clamps you are rewarded with enhanced sensitivity from the blood rushing back in. The collar is adjustable from 14 to 18 inches and features a large O-ring that can be used together with a leash.

I really love the combination of the metal chains and thick leather collar — it looks sexy yet serious all at the same time! Plus the metal chains feel really great against your skin. This BDSM body harness is best suited to those who already know they love the feeling of clamps. The two sets of clamps are relatively straight forward to use as they are standard tweezer style clamps, but the labia clamps can be a bit tricky to get on.

The under boob harness design really makes your boobs the stars of the show — perfect for pairing with some nipple clamps or suckers or just letting your partner play!  It’s a shame there’s only one size available, and although the straps are adjustable, this harness won’t fit larger bodies. Given the more expensive price, I would recommend this harness to anyone who has some experience with bondage harnesses but is looking to level up to a more serious, higher quality harness.

Oh and if the black doesn’t suit your style, it also comes in a gorgeous baby pink version!

This BDSM chest harness certainly looks the part, and it will definitely help you get into you role once you are all strapped in!

How to use a BDSM Harness

Each BDSM harness will be used in a slightly different way, depending on the style and which features it has. You can get creative with how you want to use yours, but here are few ideas to get you started!

How to use a BDSM Harness

Use it with leash

Use it with leash

Adding a leash to your BDSM harness is great for power play. Leash up your sub and lead them around before you have your fun with them for deeper submission.

Attach your own restraints

How to use a BDSM Harness

Some BDSM harnesses come with their own restraints and some have D-rings to attach your own. You can explore restraint by locking your partner’s wrists to their waist or behind their back or go deeper by using the D-rings to tie your partner to the bed or a chair.

How to use a BDSM Harness

Bring out your inner Dom/me

Bring out your inner Dom/me

A strong BDSM harness can really help you get into character and bring out your inner dom or dominatrix. Add in a whip or flogger and you are good to go!

How to clean your BDSM Harness

Different BDSM harnesses will have different cleaning instructions based on their material, so you should always check the manufacturer's guidelines to make sure you don't damage your harness. If your bondage harness is made of leather, you can clean it with warm water and a mild soap or saddle soap. You will also want to use a leather conditioner to keep the leather moisturised and supple and prevent it from cracking. Some synthetic materials are machine washable and other will need to be wiped down with a damp cloth and mild soap.

Porous
materials

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

The toys with electrical
components

If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
