How to Choose Strap-On Underwear?

How to Choose Strap-On Underwear?

Editorial Team |

Comfort and sex appeal come together with strap-on underwear. Unlike a regular harness, the strap-on underwear provides a definite comfy fit while supporting your chosen toy and facilitating strap-on playtime. You can easily find the model that matches your preferences – thongs, briefs, boxers, boyshorts, etc. The strap-on underwear is designed to hold a probe, allowing you to explore so many new facets of sexual pleasure.

If you’d like to try pegging or sexy girl-on-girl action, strap-on underwear will deliver what you need and then some. To help you choose the suitable model, we have compiled the following guide on selecting strap-on underwear, along with practical tips and suggestions.

What Is Strap-On Underwear?

As the name suggests, this is inspired by regular strap-on harnesses, but instead of straps, you get a pair of undies that can hold a probe in a stable front pocket. Wearing strap-on underwear gives you comfort and makes you feel sexy.

To use strap-on panties and boxers, you have to tuck a dildo in the front placket and put the undies on. The front placket features an O-ring that stabilizes the dildo, allowing you to penetrate your partner. Strap-on underwear can be used in most sex positions. The wearer can be the active side (topping their partner), or they can be straddled, allowing the person who’s being penetrated to take charge.

Strap-On Underwear Models

Like regular underwear, strap-on underwear is manufactured in various distinctive, sexy, and appealing designs. Some of the most common choices include:

  • Briefs: a timeless classic, briefs feel tremendous and highlight your curves beautifully. Strap-on briefs guarantee stability, especially if the design is reinforced with an O-ring pocket in the front. Strap-on briefs are manufactured in various sizes, from petite to plus-sized, giving all ladies the perfect fit.
  • Boxers: anyone who prefers a bit of androgyny can opt for a pair of sexy strap-on boxers. Inspired by male underwear, strap-on boxers look incredibly hot on the female body. The design is empowering – the degree of masculinity that it brings to the table can get both people involved in a sexy experiment inspired by some role reversal.
  • Crotchless panties: Crotchless strap-on underwear is probably the most erotic choice. The design is excellent because it allows someone to top their partner and stimulate themselves. Crotchless strap-on underwear is also fantastic for couples who enjoy switching between topping and bottoming in the same session.

How to Select Strap-On Underwear Products

Now that you know how strap-on underwear works, let’s examine the product characteristics that determine quality and satisfaction with the purchase. When choosing strap-on underwear, you need to be looking at the following:

  • Model and size: The model you prefer when buying regular underwear will probably be a good choice for strap-on underwear. Also, look at the manufacturer’s sizing chart. The fact that you wear a specific size in regular underwear doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get a great fit with a strapless piece. Please double-check what the manufacturer suggests regarding sizing to ensure a perfect fit.
  • O-ring size: A metal O-ring in the front pocket of your strap-on underwear isn’t the best choice. Even if there’s some padding, you’ll still feel it pressing against your body. Instead, we suggest you opt for strap-on underwear with a flexible O-ring. Usually, such rings are made of silicone, and they support the dildo well enough without making you experience any discomfort.
  • Dildo compatibility: Unless you’re buying strap-on underwear and penetrative probe combos, you should make sure that the product is compatible with the dildos that you own. For this purpose, pay attention to the O-ring size. The diameter should be bigger than your dildo’s shaft. Also, the base of the dildo needs to be wider than the O-ring so that it sits well inside the pocket and doesn’t move around a lot.
  • Additional features: Some fun additional features you may want to get from your strap-on underwear include a bullet vibrator pocket or a vibe/stimulation pad built inside the undies. Such stimulating features will allow you to experience intense clitoral stimulation while penetrating your partner – a win-win for both partners.

Top Tips for Purchasing Strap-On Underwear

We have a few more tips you can count on when shopping for strap-on underwear. To be fully satisfied with your purchase, go through the following steps before buying:

  • Choose a great fit: Unlike strap-on harnesses, strap-on underwear isn’t adjustable, so you need to ensure the fit is perfect. Many undies are made from somewhat elastic materials that can stretch a bit to accommodate your curves. Trying to squeeze in underwear that’s too tight or having a piece hanging loose on your body, however, will impact both your comfort and your sex performance. You know your body well – pick the model that will fit you best. Also, get the correct size, even if the manufacturers’ chart suggests you need to go bigger than what you’d usually purchase.
  • Choose a comfy material: Not all strap-on underwear pieces are created equal. Some are simply crafted from better fabrics that caress the skin and make you feel like a queen. Breathable fabrics like cotton and microfiber are always a great choice. Alternatively, you can opt for durable picks like soft polyester. Satin and lace strap-on undies look extra feminine and sultry.
  • Choose a model with a flexible O-ring: We’ve already touched upon this essential, but it’s important enough to warrant repetition. A flexible O-ring is a prerequisite for a comfortable experience. Don’t worry about the softness of silicone – it can still hold a dildo in place. The material will get the job done without digging into your pubic mound.
  • Opt for a model with some additional features: Even if you don’t intend to use the extra features every single time, they can be fun to experience every once in a while. A small pocket that houses a vibrating bullet allows for some sexy experimentation, especially if you don’t own vibrating dildos. The same applies to a stimulation pad that’s built into the design of the strap-on undies. It’s up to you to decide whether you’ll stimulate yourself during that particular session or not.

Strap-on underwear is excellent for beginners and satisfies the needs of experienced role reversal and pegging. With so many models and designs to choose from, you’ll quickly discover the product that meets your needs and also corresponds to your aesthetic preferences.

FAQ

Will strap-on underwear help me peg my man?      

That’s one of the primary purposes of strap-on underwear. Strap-on undies are meant to act as a replacement for classic harnesses. They are very stable and intuitive to use, allowing for effortless pegging. Just choose the suitable probe to partake in this kind of sexy activity!

What dildo fits with strap-on underwear?

The answer depends on the strap-on underwear specifics. To find out if a particular model is going to work with the dildo that you own, check the diameter of the O-ring built into the undies. The O-ring diameter needs to be slightly bigger than the girth of your dildo.

How can I wash my strap-on underwear?

Always check the strap-on underwear’s label before washing. Most strap-on underwear models are machine-washable and dryer-compatible. All you need to do is check the water temperature recommendations to prevent the fabric from shrinking. If you’d like to extend the lifespan of your strap-on underwear, wash it by hand.

Can I fit a bullet vibe in strap-on underwear?

You can fit a bullet vibrator inside strap-on underwear models that have a pocket for the purpose. It may still be possible to squeeze a bullet inside the pocket of regular strap-on undies, but the effect of the vibrations isn’t going to be optimal this way.
