The 6 Best Kegel Balls for Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor
How I Rated These Kegel Balls
I looked at the value for money, product quality, design, ease of use, and a few other factors when rating these kegel balls for women.
Having no personal experience with these products myself, I first referred to reviews from fellow Bedbible writers for information. After that, I considered customer feedback and even looked at available manufacturer information to make a complete assessment.
By sourcing information from multiple places and using a standardized rating system to compare products, I’ve managed to write as unbiased of a summary comparison as possible for these products.
I recommend reading all the way through before making a selection though, as each one has its own unique pros and cons!
How do Kegel Balls Work?
Kegel balls, also known as vaginal beads or Ben Wa balls, use weight to apply resistance against the pelvic floor. For this process, the balls are inserted inside the vagina and held in place by the pelvic floor muscles.
By changing the weight, a person is able to increase or decrease the resistance, allowing them to strength-train their pelvic floor muscles. Training approaches vary. While some users only wear them for a few minutes at a time, others wear them for hours daily.
Things to Know Before Using Kegel Balls
Even if you’re ready to start using kegel balls for tightening your pelvic floor right away, there are a few things you’ll want to know before you begin.
Firstly, kegel ball exercises aren’t recommended for everyone. You should avoid using them while pregnant or when recovering from pregnancy.
When in doubt, you should check with your doctor to ensure that you can safely use kegel balls.
Like any other sex toy, it’s important to only use toys made from body-safe materials. You’ll also need to select a weight & size that’s suitable for you.
Always make sure to sufficiently clean your kegel balls between use. If not, you may end up with an infection.
Lastly, avoid working too hard. Overusing kegel balls can lead to fatigue, discomfort, pain, and even vaginal tearing! Once again, when in doubt, check in with your doctor to avoid any issues.

The 6 Best kegel balls in Test
Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System
First up is a product from a premium brand, the Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System!
Designed for discreet use and coming complete with a satin carry pouch, this set of kegel toys comes with two weights of balls to help you in your pelvic floor strength training.
The pink vaginal balls weigh one ounce each; the blue balls weigh 1.3 ounces a piece.
Made of silicone and fit with a pull cord that makes for struggle-free removal, these kegel balls for women are the perfect introduction for first-time users.
If you’ve never bought kegel balls before but want to start off strong then picking up a set of the Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System is a great way to go!
Out of all of the products on this list, I ended up choosing the Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System as the “Test Winner”. With that in mind, let’s start with the negatives first before moving on to the positive points.
Although these kegel balls have a cute appearance to them, they do look somewhat cheap. With a price tag of over $60, I think most people would expect something that looks a bit more “premium” for the price.
If you’ve never used this type of toy before then there is a slight learning curve. To be fair, you’ll have to deal with this regardless of which kegel balls you end up choosing, but it’s still something you should keep in mind.
Now, onto the positives!
Being made of silicone, these balls are completely body-safe. The kit comes with two different weights of balls, which helps make it seem more approachable to complete beginners.
Lastly, the set includes a satin storage pouch, which helps you keep track of the balls while also making travel more manageable.
Overall, I think these kegel balls are a solid option for first-timers and beginners. While they don’t offer the weight that you can get from more advanced sets, you do get a high level of quality (despite their relatively cheap-looking appearance).
Lovehoney Heavy Double Kegel Balls
If the previous vaginal balls weren’t heavy enough for you then perhaps this next offering will be more your style. Introducing, the Lovehoney Heavy Double Kegel Balls!
With a total weight of 3.2 ounces, these high-quality vaginal balls will make their presence known.
The balls are completely connected by their silicone covering, meaning—not only are they body-safe—that there’s no risk of losing one.
With a diameter of 1.43, these balls are somewhat thick but still easy enough to insert inside with sufficient lubrication.
Complete with free-roaming internal weights for added stimulation, the Lovehoney Heavy Double Kegel Balls are perfect for extended wear and daily use!
At less than $20, these vaginal beads easily earned the “Cheapest” mention on this list. Although they’re by no means perfect, these balls are the perfect kegel balls for tightening and training your pelvic floor.
Thanks to a completely-connected design, you won’t need to worry about accidentally losing a kegel ball inside of you when performing kegel ball exercises. Each ball contains internal weights, which—in theory—provide extra stimulation.
However, feedback on the internal weights has been mixed. While some people find them to work well, others mention that they could barely notice a difference.
Still, these are a budget-friendly option, and they work well considering the price. With a convenient retrieval cord for worry-free use and a completely waterproof design for painless cleaning, these balls are a great option for anyone in search of kegel balls on a budget.
Inner Goddess Mini Silver Pleasure Balls
Did you love reading Fifty Shades of Grey, perhaps so much so that you’ve decided to pick up your own set of kegel balls?
Well, if that’s the case then the Inner Goddess Mini Silver Pleasure Balls are the ones for you!
These kegel balls for women are made from a combination of stainless steel and silicone, making them completely body-safe.
Perfect for both daily kegel training as well as long-term wear, these easy-to-use kegel balls are sized with the beginner in mind.
Complete with a branded bag for simplified storage and offered for less than $30, bring your favorite erotica to life with the Inner Goddess Mini Silver Pleasure Balls!
Being extremely easy to use, these vaginal balls ended up being my “Beginner” pick. While most kegel toys are relatively straightforward to use, these particular vaginal beads are sized and weighted with the beginner in mind.
Branding is pretty much all over this product, both on the bag and on the tag of the beads themselves. If you don’t mind showing your love for the franchise then this isn’t an issue. However, if you’re trying to store these subtly then that might pose a problem.
Aside from the branding, everything is exactly what you’d expect. The beads are securely attached to the silicone strings, making it extremely unlikely that you’ll ever lose a bead.
Paired with a high level of build quality, you can feel confident when using these balls. Removal is also a breeze, thanks to the large metal tag at the end of the string.
All things considered, I’d recommend these kegel balls for beginners. As long as the Fifty Shades of Grey branding doesn’t bother you, you’re sure to enjoy using the Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Mini Silver Pleasure Balls!
Rechargeable Silicone Vibrating Dual Kegel Balls
Next on my list of kegel balls for tightening your vagina & strengthening your pelvic floor are the Rechargeable Silicone Vibrating Dual Kegel Balls.
Designed to be beginner-friendly and easy to use, these balls are USB rechargeable and offer 12 different vibration functions for you to experiment with.
Of course, you can also use them for regular kegel ball exercises as well. However, if you decide you want to spice things up, these CalExotics balls are there to help.
Complete with a memory function to pick up where you left off and a travel lock for worry-free transportation, these vibrating kegel balls are worth adding to your collection of kegel toys!
These vibrating vaginal beads are well-designed. Not only do they offer 12 different vibrations modes, but they also have a travel lock and a simple push-button control.
The battery lasts between 30 to 40 minutes, which isn’t bad. Charging only takes 45 minutes, so the charge-to-use ratio is fairly even.
Physically, however, these balls may not be up to everyone’s standards. The balls are a bit closer together than you’ll find on other models, which—depending on your preferences—may be either a plus or a minus.
Still, the toy is made of high-quality silicone and ABS, making it safe for internal use. Although the toy isn’t completely waterproof, being splashproof should be enough for most situations.
These kegel balls are an easy recommendation for beginners who want balls that vibrate. However, experienced users may want to look at other options, as these balls are only offered with a width of 1.25”.
Bloom Silicone Vibrating Kegel Balls
This next pick is a bit more expensive than most kegel balls, but you just might find the price increase worthwhile.
Chances are, you’ve heard of We-Vibe. Now, check out the We-Vibe Bloom Vibrating Kegel Balls!
Even with vibrating models, many kegel balls for women only offer a small variety of pre-installed options.
While the Bloom balls do have ten modes built in, you can completely customize the experience to your liking using the We-Vibe app!
Controllable via button, Bluetooth, or over wifi, the Bloom even allows you to control the toy from halfway across the world.
Whether you want to take the controls yourself or hand them over to your partner, the We-Vibe Bloom offers a plethora of ways to make kegel training more exciting!
As my “App-Controlled” pick, you already know these vibrating kegel balls can be controlled via the app. However, using the app isn’t the only way you can enjoy these vaginal beads.
The device has a button on the bottom which can be used to cycle through ten modes. You can locally control the toy through the app via Bluetooth, or enable long-distance controls for partner play via wifi.
These features are great, but any app-related features rely entirely on the app. Reviews of the app have been mixed in the past, so it’s hard to predict how well these features will work for you.
Physically, the Bloom uses an entirely unique design. The second ball is completely detachable, allowing you to choose from the three included weighted balls. With weights ranging from 0.35 ounces to 1.6 punches, this selection means you can use this toy for a while.
The main issue with these vaginal beads is the price. That said, considering they include three different weighted balls and offer a ton of vibration modes, I’d argue it’s worth the asking price.
While I definitely wouldn’t recommend these to anyone on a budget, if you’re looking for the most customizable experience around, the We-Vibe Bloom is what you’ll want!
Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Balls
Lastly, we have the Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Balls. Simple but effective, these silicone vaginal balls will be the perfect addition to your kegel exercise routine.
Being silicone, these kegel toys are completely waterproof, meaning you can use them wherever you’d like without the risk of damaging them.
Thanks to the combined weight of 2.8 ounces and a diameter of 1.43 inches, both beginners and intermediate users alike will find these balls sized to their liking.
Even better, the internal free-roaming balls will move around as you move wearing the kegel balls, adding another level of stimulation to the experience.
If you need affordable, quality kegel balls then the Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Balls are a set you can rely on!
Although they weren’t placed in any particular category, I figured I’d include the Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Balls as an honorable mention. They’re fairly basic, but—as kegel balls for tightening—they get the job done in a cost-effective manner.
Unlike some of the other options, this string does allow you to remove the balls for easier cleaning. While this does slightly increase the risk of a ball coming loose during kegel ball exercises, that’s fairly unlike due to the shape of the holders.
Being made from silicone, you won’t be able to use these balls with a silicone lube. However, this gives them the advantage of being non-porous and completely body-safe, so I think the trade-off is worth it.
All in all, I’d recommend these to someone who’s already started kegel training (as the 1.43 diameter may be too big for complete beginners).
