    "The collar is an excellent fit and made of high-quality leather. Every part is expertly crafted and it is comfortable around the neck. I have a fatty neck so if you do as well, this should be a good option." —James Giger

    Promising reviews: "I just received my collar and it looks exactly as advertised. A beautiful shade of purple, great quality, and everything I was looking for in a collar. The softness of the lining is perfect to keep my neck from being irritated. Definitely would recommend and will be getting the chain to complete the package." —lisaloco11

    "Beautifully made. Supple, yet with enough structure to allow it to be pulled on by the O ring. The fur is fantastic and offers a nice contrast to the feeling of the stiff leather.

    Promising reviews: "The faux snakeskin restraint harness feels like a quality product. I half expected it to be flimsy but it is substantial, with good hardware and a convincing texture. The picture shows it as a behind the back restraint but I wear it in front. The cuffs feel and look high quality, too. They feature brass finished lobster clasps. If the harness is worn front ways, you can clip and unclip yourself from the rings — a good safety feature. Did I mention that it is very comfortable to wear?" —Anonymous

    "I absolutely love this little harness. Not only is it versatile in how it can be used/positioned, but the quality is just divine. It can be hard to find nice faux-leather bondage, and this set is just excellent. The deep red of the faux snake skin and the gold hardware look so opulent, while also being sturdy for rough play. I highly recommend" —Mackenzie G.

    "I'm a bigger person. I was worried this wouldn't fit me. But no, it fits me perfectly! Two ticks in and it fits me just fine! Leaves some marks on my neck but I don't mind that at all. Very shiny, very pretty. Suits my style and I adore it — thank you. <3" —Chrissi Duckett

    11. simple collar elevated with two silvertone chains that lead to tantalizing crocodile nipple clamps to tease and please.

    Lovehoney

    The collar has a hook-and-loop closure and is adjustable up to 18 inches.

    Promising review: "The hook and loop of the collar doesn't irritate your neck and the collar fits nicely. It doesn't look super fancy but it definitely gets the job done. Because it's velcro it can be adjusted to exactly what you need, unlike buckles.

    The nipple clamps exist within other sets, but when connected to the collar they're even nicer to pull on. They have a part you can twist to adjust the tightness, meaning they can be tight enough for beginners and people used to nipple play. My main advice with this would be rather than taking them immediately off after play, loosen them slowly, unless you are specifically looking for pain when taking them off. The rubber keeps them from being too harsh, but they can easily still cause soreness from the pinching of them.

    These are a cheap option but very effective, and as long as the description sounds appealing, they'll probably give you exactly what you're looking for. The main thing to note is the chain isn't detachable, so will always be joined to the collar." —CatMan22

    Get it from Lovehoney for $12.99.

    12. A unique BDSM collar created with durable jute rope and a carrick bend knot at the base of the throat.

    Size options for this collar range from 12 to 20 inches long.

    Promising reviews: "I love this collar! It is a little rough, but in the best way possible. I got mine tight and it’s still very comfortable. I love the clasp and the quality. I will buy more colors, but the dark pink is beautiful." —Wendy

    "The choker nestled came in a gorgeous tied box. It fit perfectly! As it is hand done rope, it was a little scratchy in the beginning but I soaked it in a bit of fabric softener and water and now I can’t get enough of it!" —Brittany Feldhake
