So, the Cocktail Party Collar and Cuffs from Ruff Doggie Styles are… well, a bit disappointing. The collar is about 15 1/2″ long and the cuffs are about 7 1/2″ long and both are 2″ thick folded over. They’re made of leather and sure smell like it. 🙂
Basically, the trick is to fold the two black parts together, so the pink shows and the black is an accent. They can actually be a tad difficult to get just right. If it’s folded funny there are creases and bumps taking a bit away from them.
There are 2 sizes, probably 1/4 to 1/2 inch difference. They are not reversible, if you flip it over you see the backsides of the snaps, rather than the shiny side. Though if that doesn’t bother you, you could have a black with pink accent look, rather than pink with black accent. Also, it’s possible that if you use the bigger size, you could see the other snap. It is not well hidden.
Now, these are not bondage cuffs. These are dress up and look cute cuffs, so they don’t have D-rings or anything like that. I’d say they’d work best with other leather, perhaps a corset or lingerie. I think these would also work excellent during erotic photography.
Perhaps because I’m a bit bigger these didn’t fit the best, they were a tad tight. These are uber cute, but were a bit disappointing for me. Luckily, these are easy to play with and I’m constantly looking for away to enjoy them more. As for cleaning, a damp cloth would work best. You could also use a standard leather cleaning kit if you have one of those.
As for how the leather feels on your skin, it’s quite nice, though it has no breathability. If you have it on for any time and especially if you move you’re gonna sweat.
4 out of 5, thanks Eden Fantasys!
